454 BIG BLOCK, TH400, 12 BOLT, CUSTOM SHOW TRUCK, TORQ THRUSTS, CLEAN!!
Roll into the next cruise night with this 1968 Chevrolet C10 stepside pickup, and they might just hand you the big trophy before you even shut the engine off. Beautifully built, this stylish pickup has all the right ingredients for a serious street machine, and it doesn't matter if you prefer driving or showing, it does it all equally well.
Few trucks are as good-looking as Chevy's C10 models from the mid-60s to the mid-70s. This one, with its lowered stance and stepside bed almost looks like the muscle car of trucks, with a predatory crouch and a ton of eyeball appeal. Of course, the sizzling red paint doesn't hurt, along with a cowl-induction hood, and exemplary paint work to make it look its best. A lot of prep work went into this truck before the paint went on, with great gaps and smooth surfaces that show undistorted reflections, a hallmark of quality workmanship. The emblems, door handles, and other add-ons were artfully shaved, and even the mirrors are neat little peep mirrors that look cool but don't get in the way. The tailgate was smoothed and fitted with a very cool light-up emblem that's reminiscent of 1950s truck badges, along with a subtle '454' badge down low. Custom lights in the rear roll pan and LEDs on the rear fenders certainly help with visibility. The bed was given a makeover as well, including a wooden floor with stainless rub strips that looks better than the hardwood in most folks' living rooms. A chrome front bumper adds a lot of class, and the billet grille inserts up front give it a unique look that helps it stand out even more.
While the exterior says muscle, the interior says luxury. Custom leather seats with lots of support and a drop down center armrest anchor a luxurious-looking cab that's a long way from 1968. A custom center console was installed and houses a pair of cup holders, and a clock for an elegant look. The original instrument panel was replaced by a billet panel stuffed full of Dolphin gauges, and a polished tilt steering column is topped by a leather-wrapped wheel. Custom door panels were crated to match the upholstery, so the truck has a very polished, high-quality feel, even the floor mats were custom made and are bound in matching tan vinyl. Entertainment is via an AM/FM/cassette stereo in the original location.
In the horsepower department, this C10 is rocking a 454 cubic inch Chevy V8, complete with an Edelbrock intake with a Holley 4-barrel carb up top. There's plenty of chrome, from the valve covers to the alternator and the rest was painted red to match the truck. A set of stock exhaust manifolds control heat and noise and have been coated to look good virtually forever. The big block doesn't seem to mind, with endless reserves of torque on tap at any speed, and the custom dual exhaust system sounds awesome exhaling through a pair of tips centered under the license plate in back. It's backed by a Th400 3-speed automatic transmission feeding a custom 12-bolt rear that's been painted to match the body. In fact, almost everything under the truck has been painted bright red, so if you plan on going to shows, bring some mirrors to really show it off, because this sucker is clean! That lowered stance is exactly right, hunkered down on those gorgeous 17-inch Torque Thrust wheels with 215/50/17 front and 255/50/17 rear performance radials.
Fast, fun, and stylish, this truck offers an incredible look and heavy-duty hardware for a very reasonable price. Call today!
