With slick red paint, a custom leather A/C interior, four-wheel disc brakes, an overdrive transmission, and an award-worthy fuel-injected V8, this 1971 Chevrolet C10 restomod is one hot custom truck. And it turns the desirability up another few notches every time you use the adjustable air ride suspension to dial in your ideal stance.
This truck gives an impression of a cut-above classic the moment you see it. The red paint is a modern application with a deep luster that loves to .....
radiate quality. And with less than 1k miles on the truck since full frame off restoration was completed, it delivers the kind of smooth shine that will have you looking for car shows. And more than just the paint, this custom truck has all the right details to impress. The front end has the sportier style of the 1967 C10. And the brightwork has been given a modern upgrade where the full-length trim, headlight surrounds, bumpers, and tailgate emblems are all done in a satin-like silver. It looks especially nice in the way this all coordinates with the modern 20-inch Budnik wheels. And you'll love the street machine style sleek details like the deleted badging, wipers, mirrors, and door handles. And the fully adjustable air ride suspension gives this the kind of stance that's unmistakably custom.
The interior continues the custom style with a comfortable and thoughtful layout. We're told there was about $10k invested in the interior alone, and this certainly has the look of a top-quality investment. The red returns on the dash and door tops, but the cream is the main color. And while this keeps the classic bench seat look, it's a far more personal setup with individual bolstering, a fold-down armrest, and supple leather upholstery. More great luxury features include cold-blowing R134a air conditioning, power windows, tinted glass, and an AM/FM/CD stereo with aux input. Plus, the area behind the seat is now a custom flush speaker box that includes an amplifier and Rockford Fosgate subwoofers. And because this was made to be a better cruiser, you have upgrades like a FAST EFI controller, a custom sports steering wheel, a tilt steering column, and a full AutoMeter Phantom gauge package.
The engine bay has an award-worthy style where the ultra-smooth inner fenders funnel your attention to the shining V8 heart in the center. The 400 cubic-inch V8 is a great way to have a small block that offers a big block displacement. And we all love the look of the vertical stacks that look like an old-school gasser motor, but really, it's part of a modern Hilborn-style electronic fuel injection. It's also supported by the right pieces, including a serpentine belt system, billet pulleys, an MSD distributor, an Optima red top battery, and a Be Cool aluminum radiator with dual electric fans. And the Sanderson headers let this exhale with added power and authority into the dual exhaust. The V8 fires up eagerly like a proper FI machine should, and runs strong to reaffirm the investment in quality when building this pickup. As you look underneath, you can see that the full build has a fresh style, including the undercarriage. There you can also spot tubular front control arms and tubular trailing arms. And it's all built to cruise nicely near and far thanks to the 700R4 four-speed automatic transmission with overdrive, power steering, the grip of modern sport tires, and Wilwood four-wheel disc brakes with drilled & slotted rotors.
Distinct, powerful, and absolutely awesome, this is the pickup with all the features you want. So don't let it go into someone else's collection. Call today!!!
