SLICK-BUILT BOX CHEVY, STRONG 350 V8, 4BBL, AUTO, LONGTUBES & DUALS, PS, PB!!!
This cool pickup truck started life like any other C/K pickup, but thanks to an extensive upgrade, it looks like what a muscle car would look like if it had to grow up hauling bricks for a living. Hard to believe that a 1987 Chevy C10 pickup could attract this much attention, but when you look this good, it's probably easy to do.
At first glance, even in bright sunlight, this sucker looks great. The charcoal gray paint is rendered in two-stage urethane that still looks good despite the build being a few years old, and that's a tribute to the care it has received since it was completed. It's not perfect and it's been driven, but this is a truck that looks better than most. Of course, a few choice of body mods give it that hunky look, including a cowl-induction hood and a billet grille, but it's still totally functional with big side mirrors and big chrome bumpers that shine up well. You can look down the sides of this truck and see how much time went into getting it straight, and it's obvious that this wasn't a backyard special, but a truck that took time and money to get to this level. If you like how it looks, you won't be disappointed by how it fits together. It's also ready to work, thanks to a spray-in bedliner in the 6-foot bed.
Inside, there are a few modifications, but mostly they chose to keep it pretty stock. The factory bench seat was covered with a new black vinyl seat cover to give it a stock look, and black carpets are joined by matching mats to give it a luxurious feel and to help control noise and heat. The original dash has a cool metallic finish and the auxiliary gauges are modern white-faced dials that work with the low-mounted tach and shift light. Power windows are a nice find and there's an AM/FM/CD stereo head unit that makes for good entertainment out on the road. The 4-spoke steering wheel really dresses up the interior and with a light tint on the windows, it has a sinister look.
For reliability, there's a built 350 cubic inch V8 that includes a decent-sized cam that gives it a nasty idle, Edelbrock high-rise intake manifold, and a Holley 4-bartrel carburetor. The entire engine bay was nicely detailed with plenty of aluminum pieces and nicely finished inner fenders that make for a nice stain black backdrop. Long-tube headers feed a set of cackling Flowmaster race mufflers with turn-downs just ahead of the rear axle and it does indeed sound nasty. The stock suspension has been lowered but still rides quite well, and this sucker is amazingly clean underneath. A TH400 3-speed automatic feeds the original rear end, so it's a great highway cruiser that doesn't mind doing a little work now and then. Wheels are Pacer aluminum hoops wrapped in staggered 215/65/15 front and fat 295/50/15 rear blackwall radials that give it the perfect stance.
