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

Were not going to try to convince you that this 1986 Chevrolet C30 Wrecker truck is the worlds most desirable collectable. No, this is incredibly unique specimen is more a vintage tool, one thats incredibly useful if you do own collector cars, or want to promote your business. If youve used an old-school wrecker, you know how well it works and how easy it is to manage instead of a trailer, although wed bet youve never seen one that looks this cool. Custom matte black paint, a comfortable A/C and bucket seat interior, and a host of choice options, all powered by a stroked-out 350 V8 motor. Take a closer look, because this aint your Grandaddys tow truck. Its immediately obvious that someone spent a ton of money and effort building this resto-wrecker, and by the looks of things it doesnt appear that it has ever had to work for a living. Instead, it probably did exactly what were telling you to do with it: use it with your collector cars, or use it to promote your business. Recently repainted in Harley Davidson Denim Black, the curb appeal of this wrecker is off the charts, and the inclusion of custom red and white pinstripe work throughout really turns things up to 11. Add in the wicked logos on the doors and the spooky oversized mudflaps out back, and youve got yourself one sinister ride. The sucker is plenty beefy, with that giant stainless bumper up front, plenty of auxiliary LED lighting on top of the cab (the front units were tinted black for a cool look), and the mean cowl induction hood and chin spoiler up front. Theres definitely a party going on up front, but lest we forget the business in the back: the Holmes Tow Bed atop the dually chassis. Its been protected with blacked-out Kevlar spray-in liner, so its not just slick, its incredibly durable as well. Red accents on the wheel locks add a little contrast and eponymous pinstripes spell out The Reaper on the oversized hook, resulting in one of the better-looking utility beds weve ever seen. There are plenty of storage compartments and tie-downs on the bed, and the big honkin winch back there means you can go barn-find hunting and pull out all kinds of treasures with this rig. The inside of the cab was also restored during the build, but they stayed a little closer to the original script. Bucket seats split by a center console replace the original bench, and theyve been upholstered in black vinyl with red cloth inserts that look for more upscale that anything youd ever expect in a tow truck. Spatter-painted stock door panels man the flanks, and the entire cab (sans the metal headliner that was painted red) was coated in black Kevlar for an industrial loo thats incredibly durable and very easy to clean. Its also loaded with quite a bit of period options, meaning that it isnt some stripped-down commercial model thats been worked to death. No, its got working factory A/C running R134a refrigerant, tilt steering, dual fuel tanks, power steering and brakes, and an AM/FM/CD/AUX stereo system that sounds great. Factory gauges cover all the important information and yes, thats a 4-speed manual transmission (3-speed plus a Granny gear), which I know a lot of big rig guys prefer. Again, its all in shockingly good condition, suggesting that its never really been a full commercial vehicle that was overworked each day. Theres plenty of pulling power on tap with a rebuilt and stroked-out 350 V8 4-bolt main motor under the hood. Theres torque everywhere, so it never seems to struggle with a load on its back, and thanks to lots of recent work, great service, and a new PTO drive system, it runs superbly. The engine is topped with an Edelbrock 4-barrel carburetor and performance intake so its very responsive, and the long-tube headers feed into a true dual exhaust system with chambered mufflers that produce a wonderful V8 rumble and a powerful feeling that suggests that this Square Body can move just about anything. The 4-speed manual transmission shifts smoothly and with a giant 14-bolt rear end with 3.83 posi-traction gears out back, it jumps off the line yet still feels effortless on the highway in top gear. Theres an air-bagged assisted suspension out back for obvious reasons, and with power steering and power front disc brakes this truck handles surprisingly well, with or without a load on. Blacked-out 8-lug wheel with chrome center caps and beauty rings are the perfect complement to the theme of this Square Body, and they carry fresh rubber all around. Take The Reaper home and youll quickly find that its the best tool you own. In fact, how did you get by so long without it? Call today!
