800 Derita Road, Ste. A
This 1972 Chevrolet LUV Pickup is a very cool representation of packing a lot of power in a smaller and lightweight package. So while the new bold paint will get your attention, it's really the well-built small block upgrade that will have you love this custom LUV.
This one represents what's really cool about classics. Chevrolet started re-branding Isuzu pickups in 1972 to cash in on the compact import pickup craze. But while this was born with very little classic Chevy attitude, this custom truck rectifies that by adding in some muscle car fun. The yellow paint is a vibrant choice much like getting a Hugger Orange Camaro. And this recent application has a fresh look and bold style. Plus, black always looks good against yellow. It also adds some sporty style with the blackout grille, matte black hood, and a full custom pinstripe package that even has callouts for the upgrade under the hood. And since this is still a useful pickup, they made sure the black accenting extended to upgraded liner paint in the bed.
The interior is built for function with comfort added into the mix. That's why there's good carpeting, soft materials, and the bench seat and door panels have even been upgraded to leather. You have a Grant GT sports steering wheel, a Lokar floor shifter, and the upgraded Dolphin gauge package gives you a clear picture of what's going on under the hood.
The LUV trucks were born four-cylinder machines, but in the same tradition of the best Chevy muscle cars, this pickup was upgraded to V8 power. It's a well-built 350 cubic-inch V8 with an Edelbrock AVS2 four-barrel carburetor, Edelbrock intake, cast finned valve covers, and headers feeding a sweet-sounding dual exhaust. It's a strong-running motor that we would love to have in many different projects, but in this ultra-light truck, the performance is truly awesome. The three-speed automatic transmission feeds a 10-bolt rear end to get the power to the ground. Plus, you have good control with power brakes and upgraded Wheel Vintiques wheels that have a classic look but allow for modern sport tires.
Mighty power in a mouse package makes for a terrific performance machine. So get your hands on a lot of LUV today. Call now!
