TOTAL SHOW QUALITY, 425HP ZZ383, TCI TH350 AUTOMATIC, A/C, TILT, RESTORED TRUCK!
This flat-out awesome 1968 Chevy C10 pickup is exactly what you need for this summer's cruise season. With a snarling 383 cubic inch stroker motor, a gorgeous bright red paint job, and just the right stance, this is the truck we all wish we could own. Still willing to work hard, but ready to play at a moment's notice, you can think of it as a Camaro with a bed.
The bright red paint means this truck is far from subtle, especially with those bulging rear fenders. During the build, they added a cowl induction hood, custom LED side-marker lights, and some special LED taillights with integral back-up lamps, so nobody will mistake it for someone else's truck. It's also a super-straight southern truck with great sheetmetal and no signs of heavy bodywork anywhere, and the shiny paint only emphasizes how clean this truck really is. Panel gaps are good and everything lines up well, indicative of careful workmanship and excellent care. The chrome CHEVROLET lettering on the tailgate is a new twist on a traditional look that looks perfect here, and the stainless factory grille gives it a semi-custom look that works really well. The front and rear bumpers have been re-chromed, adding just the right amount of brightwork to the otherwise monochromatic truck, and the wood floor in the bed is simply gorgeous.
The gray interior has been upgraded from its working-class roots with a pair of buckets cribbed from a late model. Vastly more comfortable than the original bench, the seats look like they belong in there, especially when matched to the gray carpets and custom door panels. The original gauges, including an ultra-rare tachometer in the center, are among the best features of these trucks and they look great. An AM/FM/cassette stereo head unit has been neatly fitted into the original radio's slot in the dash, right above the aftermarket A/C unit that lives underneath. In between the seats you'll find a slick B&M shifter for the TH350 3-speed automatic transmission and a thick leather-wrapped Grant GT steering wheel makes this truck feel more like a muscle car than a pickup truck. As icing on the cake, note that all the glass save for the vent windows is new.
That muscle car feel is certainly enhanced by the thumping 383 cubic inch stroker motor that lives under the hood. Renowned for making big block torque in a small block package, the show-quality 383 is fed by an Edelbrock carburetor atop a chrome Edelbrock intake, a great combination that delivers more than impressive performance. It's also dressed with chrome valve covers and an open-element air cleaner, all framed by shiny chrome inner fenders that must have cost a fortune. 3.08 gears out back make for an easy, relaxed cruiser on the highway, although it still launches hard with a 2500 RPM stall converter in the TCI Street Fighter transmission. The suspension has been lowered just enough to give it the right rake, and the soundtrack from the custom stainless steel exhaust system is worth the price of admission all by itself. Fat 255/65/16 radials have been fitted to American Racing aluminum rims, and the combination properly fills those big wheelwells.
A truck that's ready to work or play, with the moves of a muscle car. What could be better?
