You know we love these Action Line C10s here at Streetside, but this 1967 Chevrolet C10 Pro Street has had our attention since the first day it busted through our showroom doors. With a race-ready set-up, tubbed rear-end, and show-stopper paint job wrapped around an immaculate interior, it's got a killer look that's way more high-end than you typically see in a Pro Street. And with a 454 V8 stroked to 502 cubes under the hood, it has enough horsepower to make good use of all that extra tire real estate out back.
We're not going to be able to espouse all this C10's virtues in this limited space, but keep in mind that this is likely the cleanest, meanest, and flawlessly executed Pro Street C10 we've ever featured. Trucks like this require a team of pros and a big bank account to build, and it comes packed with the best of everything to make it an off-the-charts performer and a show-stopper in the looks department. With that crouched stance and custom bed (check out the seamless transition from the bedsides into the closed-off tailgate), it goes from familiar and vintage, to sleek and muscular. The '67 model year C10s are a bit more rounded-off than the subsequent Action Line trucks, and that sloping hood and smoothed front blends perfectly with the custom roll pan and gorgeous white-and-chrome grill up front. A chin spoiler was smartly installed in lieu of a bumper, and the roll pan and racing-style bed spoiler out back continue that same racing theme. The 'Bird Catcher' air cleaner poking out of the hood gives away any ambiguity regarding this truck's intentions, and those looking for the rest of the story only need to check out the wild construction inside the bed, highlighted by the exposed rear suspension tucked in between those big tubs. Beyond the custom pieces, the workmanship is beautifully done, with top flight execution that's resulted in a laser-straight body, precise gaps, crisp panels, and an excellent overall fit and finish that's rarely seen on C10s. Those high remarks continue to the Pearl White paint a custom three stage job that was finished to show standards and looks amazing atop the vintage livery. It's miles deep, has a luster that only a very expensive shade of white can have, and its so smooth and uniform you'd think you were looking at a new Lexus. Even the inside of the bed was painted to the same excellent standards, and in addition to the tub and custom suspension there's a billet gas cap that leads to the relocated gas tank underneath. Everything is new, from the tinted glass to the lights and lenses and even the those cool '502' badges on the front fenders that let everyone know what time it is.
The customization inside is the ideal complement to the white bodywork, and like the exterior, delivers a modern twist on an old favorite. That sculpted leather bench seat is from TMI, and it's finished in a style closer to a pair of Gucci loafers than to what you'd typically see in the cab of a pickup. Gorgeous matching door panels at the flanks continue the theme and are punctuated with bespoke billet handles that match the billet pedals, dash knobs, column stalks, and the polished steering wheel mounted atop a tilt steering column. The dash was sculpted, smoothed, and then coated with matching Pearl White paint, and the two woodgrain bezels mounted inside look like they came out of a Bentley. There's a full set of Dakota Digital gauges, which is what you need to keep up with all those cubes under the hood, and the Lokar shifter manages the automatic transmission below. The cab was lined with Dynamat to help control noise and heat, and then tan carpets were laid down on top for a highly finished look. Power side windows are remote controlled, the windshield is new, and the big rear window gives the cabin a very open and airy feel inside thanks to crystal-clear tinted glass.
With a built 454 V8 that's been stroked to 502 cubic inches, this monster is ready and able to leave wide contact patches on the asphalt with a tap of the throttle. Performance goodies include a Comp Cams Xtreme Energy cam kit, JE Plasma Molly rings, Manley valves, a 4340 forged steel crank, Stage 1 connecting rods, and KB Performance pistons. The big block is fed through a pair of polished Edelbrock 4-barrels mounted atop a high-rise intake, and two mini-air cleaners and a removable 'Bird Catcher' air cleaner bring air into them. The engine bay is a thing of beauty, show-worthy with a beautifully painted firewall and inner fenders, polished hinges, and the block itself was painted burgundy and dressed in polished valve covers and accessories. There's bling everywhere you look, and its all practically clean enough to eat off. Long-tube headers feed into a Flowmaster dual exhaust below that sounds downright biblical, and a giant aluminum radiator with dual fans keeps everything nice and cool.
