 Vehicle Description
We sell a lot of 70s Chevy pickups and you might be tempted to glance past this one, but believe me, youd better stop and have a closer look. LS1 power, gorgeous paint, and a full-lux interior with all the creature comforts make it far more than meets the eye.





The vivid red is a 2006 Cadillac color called Infrared, and it works as well on the vintage pickup as it does on the angular new Cadillacs. The glossy finish shows off some super straight sheetmetal, which is particularly important on these trucks, whose long, straight lines give them a timeless look that remains popular to this day. The regular cab/long bed version has great proportions and remains highly usable as a truck, too. The only real modification to the body itself is the cowl-induction hood, which, youll note has some subtle ghost flames licking up towards the windshield, more evidence of the kind of careful workmanship that went into the build. Youll also note little stuff like the trick side mirrors that are color-matched to the body and HID headlights up front. Bright chrome bumpers are exactly the right touch against the gorgeous paint, but just in case you want to start hauling some stuff the beds been protected with spray-in bedliner material.





The interiors dressed the same as the exterior, with burgundy upholstery on the original bench seat and red accent lighting to give it a unique vibe once youre on board. The dash has been filled with Dakota Digital instruments in the original pods, so you dont really notice until you key it up and the dash lights up, and the views pretty good through the spokes of the billet steering wheel. Power windows and locks have been cleverly integrated, with the power lock switch stashed in the ash tray and the power window controls right under the radio. And speaking of the radio, its a powerful AM/FM/CD/iPod head unit that drives JBL speakers stashed throughout the cabin, and it sounds amazing. A power sliding rear window is a very trick feature thats also practical, because a pickup with an opening rear window is a pleasant place to spend some time. Of course, it also has A/C, so no worries about staying cool when the temperatures skyrocket.





Ordinarily, these trucks have small block V8s with carburetors, but this one packs a 1998 Corvette LS1, which is a neat fit in the trucks engine bay. Thanks to the wonders of factory engineering, it starts instantly and idles like it should, and out on the road you have Corvette levels of horsepower at your disposal. A custom cold-air intake feeds the stock LS1 intake, and a big BeCool aluminum radiator has no problems keeping it cool. A 4L60E 4-speed automatic overdrive feeds the original rear end, so this truck is a superlative highway cruiser and actually pulls down decent fuel mileage too. 4-inch lowering springs and spindles give it a great stance without killing ride quality or hauling ability and theres a brand new Magnaflow exhaust system under there, too. 4-wheel disc brakes with EBC brake pads enhance the original brakes to cope with the upgraded power levels, and 275/50/17 performance radials on polished Torque Thrusts give it just the right performance look.





This is a very impressive truck with great road manners and all the creature comforts. Its one of those time when it really would be impossible to duplicate at the price. Call now!
