Classic Car Overview
Now for sale in our Houston Showroom is this jaw dropping 1966 Chevrolet C10. This was a 2200hr + build done by Distinctive Street Rods in Camden, NY. The owner took delivery late September, 2017. You would be hard pressed to be able to build this truck for less than $300,000. There are only 4 original parts on this truck: Cab, hood, grill surround and the front bumper, which has been turned upside down and tips shaped to conform to the fender. Custom powder coated square tube chassis by Scotts Hot rods. IFS, 4 link rear, Moser 9, 3.73:1 gearing. Aluminum 20-gallon fuel tank mounted in the rear under the bed. All lines, brakes and fuel, are polished SS are are virtually every nut, bolt, washer and screw on the entire vehicle. Wilwood 16 rotors front, 14 rear with 6 piston calipers all four corners. Coddington rims: 18x 8 front, 20 x 12 rear. It has power brakes and power steering. The engine is a crate LSA tuned to 600HP. Concept One pulley set with a Lingenfelter under drive pulley on the supercharger snout. The electric pump for the supercharger as well as its SS reservoir is hidden under the right front fender. Custom aluminum radiator by Wizard Cooling and a very efficient electric puller fan keep it cool even on the hottest days. The transmission is a 4L80E, that was built by California Custom, capable of handling 1000 HP. It has an under-chassis cooling fan as well. The cab has had its drip rails shaved, door handles and gas filler opening filled and smoothed. There is an LED 3rd stop light installed in the very upper edge of the rear of the cab. The doors open remotely and there is a manual back up to open a door. There is a master kill switch hidden and well as hidden jumper posts should the battery die. The battery is in the center console, underneath a tray to keep a cleaner appearance throughout. The side glass is 1 piece electrically lifted which was a very expensive, time consuming project. But the look (minus those ugly vent windows) was worth it. The remote that opens the doors is also used as a proximity sending unit for the push button start. The hood is help open with hinges by Eddies Racing. The front turn signals were relocated from the hood to grill, a custom SS bar set (my trademark). They are 4 LED. and the holes where there factory turns signals were are filled. The headlights are J.W. Speaker LEDs, the brightest, whitest ones allowed in the US. The doors, front fenders, bed sides, bed front are all new sheet metal as is the MAR-K reversed tailgate. The handle is on the inside and uses SS cabinet hinges to lower and hold. The rear tubs are new and widened 4.5 to handle the larger rear tires. The bed wood is an African exotic called Padauk. It was milled and then allowed to dry for over 2 years to reduce shrinkage. These are held down by SS strips with hidden hardware. The LED taillights were custom made for this truck. As you will see in the photos, they were installed in custom bezels and then Frenched into the rear bed sides. The lights are 3 function: taillight, stoplight and reverse light. The rear roll pan is integrated into the body and includes a back-up camera. Inside, virtually all the modern amenities: Vintage Air A/C, heater and full defrost. 7 Pioneer AM/FM with XM/Sirius which has Apple Play and all its associated functions. The is a dock on the console for an iPhone integrated with a hidden Lightening cord to the radio to have GPS Nav. There is a hidden mike for hands free talking. The seats are reshaped buckets I designed for long range comfort. As an airline pilot doing trips up to 17 hours, I knew what made a seat comfortable.The seats, headliner, console sides and door panels are covered with the same fine leather as Ferraris. Left electric, right manual. The dash and center console hold a total of 10 custom made gauges from Autometer with body color matching pointers and trim rings. The carpet is vintage Mercedes Benz square loop carpet. The interior was done by Rich Perez, who has done the interiors of over 50 national champion vehicles. The center console is custom built and in addition to the above-mentioned items in it, it has the switches for the power windows and buttons to open the doors. And of course, a 2-cup beverage holder. The paint is PPG Deltron. Their color name is Tin Roof Rusted. It is the 2016 Camaro Garnet Red. Every surface, top to bottom, including the undercarriage has received 3 ceramic coatings.
