This truck really has it all; looks, ride, performance, comfort, and practicality. It is a 1968 Chevrolet C10 restomod with lots of nice features. Overdrive transmission, front disc brakes, cold air conditioning, tilt column, stereo, trailer brake controller; it’s all there. It is a lot of fun to drive yet you can still use it like a truck.
To begin, this C10 looks terrific. Completed in 2009, it had spent much of its life in the south which provided a rust-free frame and body. The bed was replaced with a 1990 stepside piece that lines up nicely with the cab. The bumpers and inner fenders were replaced, and the cab fuel tank was removed in favor of a 16-gallon cell under the bed. The truck was professionally painted in Wrangler Silver and received tasteful pinstriping. It has also been lowered and wears American Racing wheels with 275/60R15 tires. And since this is a truck there is a Reese hitch receiver and brake controller.
The engine is a 1972 Chevy 4-bolt 350ci. It has nice power and gets decent mileage (16-18 mpg). It features a mild cam, Edelbrock intake, 4-barrel carb with electric choke, and HEI distributor. Note the diamond plate trim under the hood too. The transmission is a 700R4 overdrive unit that has been completely rebuilt, while the 12-bolt rear end houses 3.43 gears. There are also power front disc brakes and power steering.
The interior uses seats from a 2008 Buick that slide, raise, and recline. There is also a tilt steering column to ensure a comfortable driving position. Along with the relocated fuel tank, this makes for a great improvement in the 1968 cab. The center console is from a 2006 Tahoe and provides loads of storage along with cupholders. There is a set of Sunpro gauges in the center dash and a tachometer on the A-pillar. There is also a Pioneer stereo with speakers front and rear.
There are many more features. Painless wiring, halogen lights, tinted glass, sport mirrors, underhood accent pad, fog lights - lots of upgrades over what Chevy produced in 1968. It all makes for a unique classic pickup that hasn’t lost its utility. And you don’t hear that very often.
