383 CI STROKER, FULLY RESTORED SHOW N GO, 4X4, LIFTED W/35'S, 4-WHEEL DISC, IPOD
Fresh from a frame-off build, this impressive 1970 Chevrolet C10 pickup has the hardware to go anywhere and the beauty to be at home on the show field. It's also got plenty of horsepower thanks to a 383 inch stroker motor, so regardless of what you're into, this truck definitely delivers.
As far as trucks go, the Chevy C10 of the late-60s and early-70s was one of the better-looking machines, tough-looking for the job site, but still civilized and handsome enough to be driven every day. Thanks to the recent work, the bright red paint shines brilliantly and shows only very minor signs of use. Underneath that paint is clean bodywork that lines up right and doesn't show any major bumps or bruises, so even though this truck was built to play in the dirt, it doesn't appear that anyone has tried it out yet. You don't often see trucks finished to this level, and if you sight down the sides you'll note that the blocking was quite effective in getting the sides laser-straight with minimal distortions and those big fenders handle the oversized tires with ease. Almost all the shiny stuff, including the bumpers and stainless trim, was replaced during the build, so it doesn't have any of the dings and cloudiness that you see in original stuff. And for practicality's sake, the bed was finished with spray-in bedliner material that should last practically forever.
As nice as the body is, the interior is even nicer. The painted surfaces are all new, just like the exterior, and a fresh black seat cover duplicates the original material and pattern with a Chevy bowtie emblem in the center. The steering wheel looks almost too slick to be original, but it's certainly an OEM piece, perhaps from a Corvette as the crossed-flags emblem on the horn button would suggest. These trucks carried some of the best-looking gauges, which offer a pretty comprehensive look at the engine's condition as you drive. The column shifter is for the TH350 3-speed automatic transmission, while the lever on the floor is for the 2-speed transfer case, all surrounded by a very neat-fitting vinyl floor covering that's durable enough to keep up with the rest of the truck. A new Kenwood AM/FM/CD/iPod stereo is a neat fit in the dash and sounds quite good out on the road or trail.
For power, this truck uses a torquey 383 cubic inch stroker small block V8, which is a great choice for a big hauler like this. The aluminum intake with its long runners helps with that torque production and it's fed by a 4-barrel Edelbrock. A few chrome items dress it up although the engine bay has a very stock feel overall. Long-tube headers feed a custom exhaust system with Flowmaster mufflers, which turns down just ahead of the rear-mounted gas tank that was borrowed from a Suburban. The suspension is augmented with a 6-inch lift and heavy-duty shocks and heavy-duty axles at both ends, and four wheel disc brakes are a welcome upgrade with that much tire to manage. Widened Chevy Rally wheels always look right on anything wearing a bowtie and carry massive 35x12.5-15 BFGoodrich T/A radials.
Go-anywhere utility never looked so good, and with smart performance improvements, this is a truck that's a pleasure to drive regardless of whether there's a road to follow. Call today!
