Everyone knows the Action-Line C10 was one of Chevy's best designs, and the only thing you can do to make it better is finish the paint and bodywork to an eye-catching standard, give it a comfortable A/C interior, and stuff it with a strong, professionally built 350 V8, a 700R4 overdrive transmission, and a host of choice options.

This is the kind of truck that makes folks do a double-take when they first see it, because aside from the glowing red paint and big wheels, it still has .....
that cool, vintage look. Then you get a little closer and see how good the gaps are, and how smooth it all looks for a truck that was obviously built to be used and enjoyed. The basic shape is unchanged although the raked stance is a bit more aggressive than stock, and even though the paint is not perfect, the driver-quality presentation of this pickup has loads of curb appeal. Maybe it's the screaming red paint, which looks fantastic on the Chevy's chiseled single cab and short bed, or maybe it's the unique black hood/cowl accents, or even the roll pan out back where the bumper used to be? Or maybe it's the cool stance and oversized rolling stock. Or how about that simple tailgate with CHEVROLET embossed on its surface? Or perhaps it's a combination of everything, which only proves that this is a well-conceived, nicely executed driver truck that looks like a million bucks when it's cruising down Main Street. Regardless, there's a lot of well-executed work here and it looks great from any angle, from the crisply rendered grille up front to the sparkling chrome bumper just below it. Oh, and the bed remains fully functional thanks to a heavy-duty spray-in bedliner and reinforced wheel wells.

This one got a full interior makeover as well, featuring a custom wrapped bench seat covered in red-and-white upholstery made of both cloth and vinyl. The two-tone color scheme continues with the white door panel inserts, dash pad, visors, and kick panels, along with the contrasting red steel on the doors, dash, and steel headliner. The original gauges were swapped in favor of an elegant set of Dolphin units that really makes things look a bit more grown up inside, even inside the brightly finished bezel. R134a A/C and a tilt column are another step away from its working-class origins, and that 3-spoke steering wheel adds to the muscle car feel. A JVC AM/FM/CD/AUX stereo head unit has been neatly grafted into the original dashboard, and feeds speakers stashed throughout the cab. A Lokar shifter in the floor manages the 700R4 4-speed automatic transmission below, and although the carpet isn't the best, it does help insulate the cab with a more grown-up feel. Seatbelts keep everyone in place, and if A/C isn't needed during temperate weather, the rear window features a sliding rear glass.

Another great thing about trucks is that they can handle just about any powerplant you'd care to use. In the case of this bright red hauler, it's a built 350 V8 that was put together in 2015 and nestles between the shiny black inner fenders like it was born there. Bored .060 over with a balanced crank, the 4-bolt main motor runs exceptionally well, with upgraded goodies like SRP forged pistons, a Comp Cam camshaft, push rods, and roller rockers, and ProMax 190cc intake ports. It's fed by an Edelbrock 4-barrel atop a polished performance intake, and the block wears finned Edelbrock valve covers, a chrome Edelbrock air cleaner, and long-tube headers that all add to the muscle car look under the hood. An aluminum radiator keeps the whole show nice and cool, while a great-sounding dual exhaust system fitted with throaty Flowmaster mufflers that dump just behind ahead of the rear axle. A 700R4 4-speed automatic overdrive transmission and 3.08 gears in the 12-bolt mean this truck just loafs along at highway speeds, and ferocious acceleration is just a gentle throttle squeeze away. Power steering and front disc brakes make driving a blast, while flashy 18-inch Boss wheels give it just the right look and wear 245/45/18 front and 285/35/18 rear Continental performance radials.
