Here's the kind of custom build to get excited about. This 1972 Chevrolet C10 Restomod pickup has a great stance, modern style, thoughtful details, and oh yeah, a supercharged fuel-injected big block V8 that's putting some serious muscle on the street.
This is the kind of truck that will command full attention even if someone just first catches a casual glance. That's why it has been to SEMA. It has the classic two-tone and full trim of a premium C10, but no one would ever call this a preserved classic. After all, the glow from the metallic blue paint lets everyone know there has been a big investment making this one a modern machine. What's most impressive about this build is the level of overall thoughtfulness in how it updates the classic style. For example, it still keeps the big classic bumpers, but now they are color-matched to look modern in the metallic blue. The grille is pure vintage Chevy, but the LED headlights give this a killer kind of cool. And the wheels are one of our favorite parts. They have the classic Rally look, but they are from the masters at Detroit Steel Wheel Co., and the 18/20 inch front/rear stagger adds to the speedy style of the lowered stance. There's also the truck bed. It has the classic wood floor that we all love, and with the flip of a switch, it raises on a hydraulic arm to show off the polished fuel cell and color-matched rear end. So you just know a ton of places where this is going to be the coolest and most unique machine to show up.
The enhanced attitude continues inside. And just like the exterior, it also keeps an eye on history. So while you have sculpted bucket seats from TMI, you also have GM's classic houndstooth cloth inserts. It looks so good that it's even repeated on the center console and door panels. The full package is thoughtfully detailed, right down to the billet door handles and the stitching on the smooth dash pad. And you have plenty of comfort features, like cup holders, upgraded insulation, and provisions for air conditioning (it will need servicing and/or components to function again.) And they integrated a Pioneer AM/FM/CD touchscreen infotainment system w/Bluetooth. The steering wheel has a cool/classic style, and it's on a tilt column to give you a good view to the Dakota Digital gauges.
The engine bay was kept tidy so everyone could have a clear look at all the awesome hardware. The pipe for the Vortech supercharger is like a big bright beacon calling others to take a look at this pickup. And when they get closer, they're going to see a 454 cubic-inch V8 that's said to have been bored out to 468ci total. It has been further enhanced with Trick Flow aluminum cylinder heads, Edelbrock Performer air-gap intake, and Ultimate headers feeding the dual exhaust w/Flowmasters. It's even topped with a FiTech electronic fuel-injection system for the best in power and consistency. As you dig deeper, you'll also spot the best supporting components, like an All American Billet serpentine belt system, MSD ignition, and a Ron Davis Racing aluminum radiator w/electric fans. On the road, it's your choice to keep this one mild or wild, because the Hughes Performance 4L80E four-speed automatic transmission is stout enough to take on the supercharged power, and it also will comfortably shift you into overdrive. Plus, the suspension is ready, too. You can see the strong billet front A-arms arms from the engine bay, and there are billet rear trailing arms. There's also a Dutchman axles, a stout Ford 9-inch rear, and Aldan American coilovers. Add in power steering, Wilwood power brakes, and four-wheel discs, and this Chevy is a wild power pickup that's easy to drive like a cruiser.
It's time for you to be unique, powerful, and absolutely awesome. It's time for this custom C10. Call today!!!
