1971 Chevrolet C10 Restomod in Fort Worth Texas

 Vehicle Description
This 1971 Chevrolet C10 Restomod pickup is probably more muscle car than pickup truck. With 427 cubic inches of LS7 power built up to output north of 600 horses, a 4-speed 4L80E transmission that manages the power, a suspension designed to plant the truck on the road, and 4-wheel disc brakes that stop it on a dime, this C-10 is one of those Dream Trucks you hear professional builders talking about all the time. And even with all those performance upgrades, what everyone will likely be talking about it is that killer paint job and slick interior, because the look of this truck really steals the show. br / br / These 2nd generation C/K series trucks are some of the most handsome to ever come out of GMs styling studios, but this one has a decidedly road racing vibe to it that turns the timeless design up to 11. Part of it comes from the lowered and raked stance (well talk more about the suspension in a moment) but part of it comes from the attention-grabbing yellow paint, which is further enhanced by the white SS-style stripes on the hood and hard tonneau cover over the bed. Finish work is very good with hardly any signs of use, with a high gloss finish that shines up great, as should be expected of a truck with less than 8k on the build. Its not a perfect a trailer queen that was never meant to be driven, as evidenced by all the performance goodies under its skin, but its certainly nice enough to go dominate your local car show or cruise in. The steel cowl induction hood (complete with 427 badges on each side), billet grille inserts, smoothed tailgate and rear roll pan, along with all that killer SS and LS7 badging help reinforce the performance vibe that this truck gives off at long range. Those with a trained and experienced eye will note that the front clip of this truck from a 67-68 model C-10, but all that extra chrome and intricate design up front blends perfectly with the bright front bumper with its integrated fog lights. This truck was purposely designed to turn heads, and it does that superbly, dropping jaws everywhere it goes. The bed was covered with spray-in bedliner inside, so its still functional, an aftermarket gas tank was relocated back there as well (a safety and performance feature that costs a good amount of time and money to complete), and its all protected by a paint-matched hard tonneau cover thats strut assisted and finished the look of this truck / br / The interior was nicely upgraded at the time of the build yet still manages to keep a stock-style vibe, with comfortable low-back bucket seats that can surprisingly seat three, or two with the middle seat folded down into a big, roomy arm rest. The chairs are obviously modern and they work rather well with the rest of the C10s interior, covered in a plush black vinyl thats in good shape. Theres a taut headliner above, plush black carpets below, and Cheyenne-style door panels include Western-scroll designs, while the black dash pad provides a nice contrast to the yellow stock dash it protects. The factory gauges in the stock bezel were replaced by white-face Classic Instruments dials and it thats not enough, an auxiliary fuel gage was mounted under the dash as well. Theres also a kickin Sony bluetooth stereo system, functional factory-style air-conditioning with R134a refrigerant that blows ice cold, and a three-spoke steering wheel atop a billet tilt column to manage the / br / Open the hood and youll see where the good stuff is, starting with a built LS7 V8 (427 CI V8 from a C6 Corvette Z06) topped by a Holley Hi-Ram modular intake and fuel injection system. Its got a healthy cam and has ARP head studs, Crank cross bolts, billet fuel rails, a 105mm throttle body, and FAST Precision-Flow fuel injectors. Its all beautifully fitted and with an LSX coil relocation kit, GMMP cast Chevrolet valve covers, and a serpentine accessory drive system, all work and looks like its always belonged in this C-10. Theres a big aluminum radiator up front to keep it all cool, and Hedman long-tube headers feed into a custom 3-inch X-pipe dual exhaust with Borla race mufflers for an unmistakable sound that will surely scare the neighbors. The 4L80E 4-speed automatic overdrive transmission with a 3500 stall convertor is aided with a shift kit and turns a new driveshaft connected to a Strange Engineering 9-inch rear end, offering the best of acceleration and cruising abilities. Power Wilwood 4-wheel disc brakes, dropped spindles, fat sway bars, and trailing arms with coil springs out back give it that crouching stance and impressive handling on the street. A professional tune means that it runs and drives like a stocker but unleashes all the fury when you drop the pedal, a remarkable achievement. And the 600HP estimate that we were given we think is extremely conservative, simply because the motor alone is 505HP stock, and this one is far from stock with all the top-shelf performance parts that were added. The point is whether you want to dominate the strip or the street, youll surely succeed. Polished Centerline wheels and 255/60/15 front and 295/65/15 Mickey Thompson rear radials in back try to hook it all up and mostly / br / If youve taken a good look at this truck, you know its something special. Dont let the reasonable asking price fool you, theres a huge pile of cash spent to make it reliable and streetable, and the next kid in a warmed-over exotic wont even know what hit him.
