This is the kind of truck to get excited about. Every inch of this 1969 Chevrolet C10 pickup has been gone over to give it a fantastic presence on the street. From the mirror black paint, to the A/C interior, to the performance-built supercharged big block under the hood – it's a true custom with an undeniable presence.
The light shines off of this Chevy as if they made black mirrors, and the full effect is a truck that can lurk in the shadows. Of course, it wouldn't be able to pull of this slippery midnight appearance if it were not for the exceptionally straight sheetmetal that has been given a serious investment in erasing decades as a workhorse. With such a clean shine on the paint, only the best brightwork will do on the front bumper, grille, and cool Foose alloys that are staggered 18/19 inches front/rear for that perfect aggressive stance. But all this excellent presentation so far is not what first grabbed your attention. Know this truck had you hooked from the moment you saw the bulge in the custom cowl hood. But don't forget to check out the details, too, because this one does everything right. The red pinstriping, custom door handles, and fresh wood in the custom truck bed are all part of a total package designed to amaze.
The interior has plenty of black and chrome to impress, but it also has a practical side, too. For example, the bench seat is covered in a comfortable cloth, so you can easily spend extra time in here. Plus, features like the upgraded AM/FM/CD stereo and ice-cold air conditioning give this vintage ride some serious modern convenience. But from the moment you grab that Grant GT sports steering wheel, and gaze at the full gauge package, you know this one was built to be a driver. It's all there to help you recognize there's something special under the hood, even before you hear that unmistakable whine of supercharged power.
The engine bay was kept tidy so everyone could have a clear look at all the awesome polished hardware. That B&M supercharger is like a big bright beacon calling others to take a look at this pickup. And when they get closer, they're going to see a 402 cubic-inch V8 that's been bored to 427ci total. Plus, it has further enhancements like twin Holley 600 CFM four-barrel carburetors, MSD ignition, and an aluminum radiator w/electric fans to keep this total power package running cool. There's even a set of Hooker long tube headers that add even more power as they also contribute to the thundering dual exhaust. This monster V8 connects to a stout TH350 three-speed automatic transmission. That feeds the Ford 9-in rear with a limited-slip diff and 3.42 gears for great all-around performance. All this power is nothing without control. That's why up front there are new springs, dropped spindles, and a thick sway bar. The rear has been converted to a ladder bar suspension with QA1 adjustable coilovers. Add in power steering, front disc brakes, and the grip of modern performance tires, and this C10 is a wild power pickup that's easy to drive like a cruiser.
With less than 1,000 miles on the motor, you know you're looking at a full custom build that's so fresh, it's barely broken in. So this custom is turnkey ready to win awards and turn heads. But you're not the only one who want something this set for all eyes to be on it, so hurry up and call today!
