Cool Classics: 9 Classic Chevrolet Trucks Reach 6 Figures

Classic vintage Chevrolet pickup trucks are receiving growing interest among car enthusiasts. The most collectible muscle cars are numbers-matching survivors; the most sought-after vintage trucks are full custom builds.


Classic Car Overview

This 1985 Chevrolet C10 Restomod pickup is the direct result of someone taking a Square Body and turning it up to 11. With a killer lowered stance, a strong-running fuel-injected 5.3L LS Vortec V8, an array of solid options, a custom interior, and a head-turning teal paint job, its got a unique look that totally works and turns heads everywhere it goes. Take a closer look, because this dropped Chevy is a very cool truck. The builders of this truck threw all caution and subtlety in the wind during the restoration (completed just 3,258 miles ago), electing a loud color and a wicked stance to go along with all that added pop under the hood. With that bright teal finish, its got a clean look that seems a lot more customized than it is and it holds up under scrutiny. Sure, its not without its imperfections, but the finish has a complete look that youd expect for a truck that was built to be driven and enjoyed. Despite the low, wide look, this C-10 is mostly composed of stock bodywork, although the cowl hood up front and the smoothed tailgate out back do a great job to bookend the truck with a little custom touch. The door handles havent been shaved, the tops not chopped, and the mirrors are still in place as well, resulting in a clean near-factory look that makes the lowered stance and bright paint job look even more impressive. The factory grille is still place, although the center strip and Bowtie were painted to match the body, and we have to admit we like the look, especially when combined with the LED headlights that add a cool modern touch. Chrome bumpers fore and aft really pop against the teal paint and one look in the spray-in bedliner protected bed proves that this truck never really had to work in its life. The interior was nicely upgraded at the time of the build yet still manages to still keep a stock-style vibe, with comfortable low-back bucket seats that can surprisingly seat three, or two with the middle seat folded down into a big, roomy arm rest with cup holders. The chairs are obviously modern and they work rather well with the rest of the C10s interior, covered in a plush black vinyl thats in great shape. Theres a taut headliner above, plush black carpets below, matching door panels include controls the power windows and locks, and the newer black dash pad provides a nice contrast to the teal stock dash it protects. The factory gauges in the billet-style bezel were replaced by Intellitronix digital units that provide a far more accurate reading of the engines vitals, while also lighting up the cab with their fluorescent luminescence. Theres also a kickin Pioneer AM/FM/AUX/Bluetooth stereo system, functional modern air-conditioning with R134a refrigerant, and a three-spoke Grant steering wheel atop a tilt column to manage the helm. Its clean, tight, and ready to use. Power comes from Chevys rugged 5.3 liter Vortec V8, which has been a mainstay in pickups for quite a while. Neatly transplanted to retain OEM functionality, it looks like it was born in there. The engine bay is detailed as if it were an OEM build, with a few bright red and chrome accents to tie it all together. With fuel injection, it starts quickly and runs beautifully and can be serviced at any Chevy dealer with no issues at all. A modern 4-speed automatic transmission was also transplanted, and with power steering and power 4-wheel discs, its a real pleasure to drive in almost any condition. Thanks to the overdrive transmission, this is a nice highway cruiser that gets surprisingly good gas mileage for a full-sized pickup. Underneath, the chassis is very well finished, with shorty headers feeding a dual exhaust with throaty Magnaflow mufflers that give it a fantastic soundtrack. The was suspension lowered to give it that aggressive rake, which really emphasizes those flashy 20-inch Boss Motorsport wheels that were painted to match the body and the wrapped in 255/45/20 front and 275/55/20 rear blackwall radials. A cool truck with a lot of time and effort invested in the look and nothing done that would hurt reliability or the ability to use it every day. And thats why we love this Square Body Chevy.
