To the uninitiated, this may look like a standard, classic Chevy pickup that has been restored down to the fine details. The ride height has been lowered a little, and a set of aftermarket wheels have been added to it. However, to many enthusiasts, there is still a question of what more is done to the truck, especially after taking a peek through the windows. The interior is finished in a unique color and features very nicely integrated aftermarket pieces. All of the curiosity and analysis makes sense, as there is a GM LS V8 engine under the hood which has been tuned by engine and tuning experts Baker Engineering. This truck is the total package thanks to unique looks, and a modern drivetrain under the hood. Take it out to dinner, or roll in to a car show and maybe even pick up a trophy. This truck is versatile and usable for daily duties, thanks to the vision of our client, and the hard work put in by All Speed Customs of Muskegon Michigan. The truck you see here is a custom 1971 Chevrolet C10 finished in white and green paint over a brown interior.
Though Orange, Red, Blue, and Green were on Chevy\'s color palette in 1971, they were subdued shades unlike the bright green of this truck. The exterior of this C10 is simply stunning, and restored in a way that is extremely close to the way this truck would have rolled out of the Flint Michigan production plant. Standard trim separates the white section of the body from the green sections, the eggcrate grille refllects classic styling, along with the \'Chevrolet\' nameplate on the tailgate, and chrome bumpers on either end of the truck. The exterior lighting is standard, save for the upgraded headlights, as the standard sealed beam headlights can be a bit dim compared to modern options on the market today. Five-spoke TorqueThrust style wheels wrapped in sticky Nitto tires finish off the exterior styling.
Like the exterior, the interior is very nicely finished. Fit and finish is exceptional for a custom truck like this, and thanks to the very nice fit and finish the interior as a whole feels as though it could have come from the factory this way. Aftermarket silver face gauges are neatly installed in the factory gauge locations, a modern radio in the factory size and shape is mounted above the standard-looking HVAC controls which is a VintageAir unit. Aluminum pedals and a wood rimmed, split-three-spoke steering wheel add to the sporty side of this truck.
Under the hood is a 6.0 Liter GM LS V8 mated to an automatic transmission. The engine was tuned by Baker Engineering who are local experts in engine tuning. In our video you can hear that the engine emits a nice sound through the exhaust. Not aggressive, but when opened up you can definitely hear it. The underside has clearly been restored, and shows nice new suspension pieces and the frame is clean. Other highlights of the underside are the exhaust system consisting of headers, going to a pair of Magnaflow mufflers, and a fuel cell at the rear with a filler cap integrated into the bed of the truck.
To the untrained eye, this truck may pass as a restored, classic Chevy pickup that a set of aftermarket wheels have been added to. This truck is a smart, well thought out build featuring styling that is just enough to turn some heads on the road. Don\'t let this one pass you by! Please call if interested or e-mail with specific questions. Thank you for looking.
