This 1969 Chevrolet C10 454 Restomod is quite the stunner, so much so that we're fairly confident it might be the slickest Action Line C10 in our inventory. With only 262 miles on the full, nut-and-bolt restoration, it's practically new in every way, punctuated by a super-slick Black paint job over a gorgeous red houndstooth interior. It's powered by a THUNDERING 454 V8 fuel-injected engine mated to a 700R4 overdrive automatic, sticks to the road thanks to a CPP pro-touring style suspension, .....
and features a host of high-end goodies like 4-wheel disc brakes and cold A/C. Get out of the way, there's a new sheriff in town and he's stronger, faster, and prettier than all the ones that came before.

As the '60s gave way to the '70s, Chevy embarked on a fairly extensive do-over of its highly respected line of pickups, giving them an exciting, modern appearance and attaching a new nickname - the Action Line. True to its model's original intent, this '69 model seems prepared for vigorous activity - having the good fortune of professional builders that largely left its vintage look intact, while adding some killer extra touches in the mix that raise its curb appeal well above of its peers. It was purchased as an unfinished project already wearing recent high-end paint and bodywork, and in the past year it was completely sorted out, stuffed with high-end parts, and finished to the top-end driver-quality standard you see today. The modern Black paint was expertly applied, and because there are gallons of this deep, lustrous finish on the body that's barely seen the outside world, it's bound to last for decades. By most accounts it's a borderline show-quality truck with nary an imperfection to speak of (in fact, we only found a tiny dry spot on the passenger's fender and a small smudge or two in the bed, that's it) and with only 262 miles on the completed restoration this C10 look incredibly fresh. A reproduction chrome front grille assembly was added up front to set the tone, a symmetrically creased hood protects the cackling monster underneath, and the original gas-cap on the cab was deleted when the tank was relocated to the bed. The glistening bumpers, shiny brightwork and hardware, and blacked-out Custom-spec trim that runs from end-to-end on the bottom of the truck and adorns the tailgate is all new to the build " and it's in excellent condition. Even all the glass is new " also in borderline show-quality condition like the paint " and because it's all been beautifully tinted and this C10 comes equipped with a desirable big back window, the curb appeal is through the roof. I don't know about you, but this is the exact kind of C10 that I picture in my dreams. Out back, the laser-straight SWB bed is insanely straight, free on any banged-up sheetmetal, rust, dings, or dents, and it was thoroughly painted to a level that matches the rest of the truck. And although I'm sure it could handle just about anything you throw its way, it might be a bit sacrilegious to put to work something that's this darn nice.

Much like the exterior, the interior has benefitted from a full restoration that has retained its suitably vintage appearance, albeit with many comforts of the modern world. Red houndstooth upholstery covers the bucket seats and the oversized jumpseat/armrest that splits them, Cheyenne-spec door panels complete with Western scroll and woodgrain accents were mounted at the flanks, and the soft red dash pad and plush red carpets add to the long list of new components inside that have hardly been touched by a human. Counter to the C10's workmanlike intent, things are upscale in this cab, where a 3-spoke steering wheel mounted atop a tilt column anchors the cockpit, and just ahead of it a new instrument bezel was filled with upscale Dakota Digital gauges featuring carbon-fiber inlays and red markings. Options include cold Vintage Air A/C, a retro-style AM/FM stereo, cup holders, seatbelts, and color-keyed floormats. Pretty much everything you can touch inside this truck is brand new, and it really shows.

If a rock-solid drivetrain capable of HUGE power and frequent driving is a priority for you, this C10 should move up your ""must see"" list. The 454 V8 engine standing by under the hood is running strong and up for any task, and it's so neatly nestled inside the slick engine bay you might think it was born there. It features a Holley Sniper EFI set-up, a Weaind aluminum intake, and block-hugging headers at the flanks. The big block was painted Chevy Orange and looks incredibly slick inside the slick-black engine bay, and with a giant aluminum radiator, a CPP power steering set-up, and power 4-wheel disc brakes, it's engineered for today's streets. It also sounds great thanks to a custom dual exhaust with throaty Thrush mufflers, although it's not so overbearing that your neighbors will complain. The powerplant teams with a 700R4 4-speed automatic transmission that spins a PST driveshaft linked to a heavy-duty 12-bolt rear end, so all that power and torque from the 454 is planted correctly. A quick look at the impressive undercarriage (painted to match the top of the car) and custom suspension immediately impresses, with CPP parts including tubular A-arms, a swaybar, shocks, lowering springs, and drop spindles up front, along with CPP trailing arms, shocks, and lowering blocks out back. The rear frame's been reinforced with a bolted and welded C-notch set-up, and that wicked, lowered stance is set perfectly atop flashy 20-inch US Mags wrapped in staggered 245/45/20 front and 275/40/20 rear Mickey Thompson radials.

Essentially a show-truck dialed-in to be a regular driver, this C10 Restomod hits all the right notes. Call today!
