This has been a Five-year Project
to build great looking hot rod truck.
Like many projects this started as a
late night eBay purchase.
After getting the truck and driving it for a few weeks,
I decided I did not want a stock C10,
but a truck with modern running gear
and air conditioning.
But most importantly it had to have lots of chassis,
suspension, and brake upgrades.
I wanted a truck that was a bit of a sleeper
in appearance, but with some tasteful upgrades.
I sent the truck to a performance shop
that specializes in trucks and street rods.
It was stripped to bare frame to inspect and
start with a clean slate.
After pouring over lots of catalogs and Googling C10 sites,
I developed a plan for the truck and
started ordering parts.
I got a set of custom drop spindles and
lower control arms, and a new sway bar.
I got an Early Classic Center Drop Center
that lowered the cross member and
stiffens the frame.
In the Rear Porter Built Frame C Notch,
I wanted to keep the traditional suspension set up
compared to airbags so that it would have
more of a authentic look to it.
Everything is Powder Coated and
Done By Professionals so it is done right and
should last forever.
I even had the truck's arms machined
so the e-brake cable would run through it and
not hang below the chassis.
The other detail I wanted was the Side Exit Exhaust.
I had the exhaust routed so that it went down
the inside of the frame and out the side of the bed.
The exhaust outlets are all-stainless and
look really cool.
It has a 12 bolt Posi Rear End
that was Rebuilt and Fully Setup.
A Brand new Driveline was Custom Built
for the truck as well.
It has 4 Wheel Disc Brakes with
Power Assist that are All New
Including all new lines.
Now for the best part!
I sourced a 2000 Corvette LS1 V8 Motor Complete.
I had it mated to a Fully Rebuilt
460LE Automatic Transmission.
A custom wire harness was built for it
so that I could route the ECU and other electronics
up inside the cab and look very clean.
A Custom Alloy Radiator and Fan Setup Was Built for it,
So there is Zero Cooling Issues.
I bought a Vintage AC System and
Had it adapted to the Corvette AC Compressor,
Along with custom lines and AC condenser.
It Runs Really Strong and Smooth
With No Issues.
The body was in really good shape
when I got it, with pretty fresh paint.
Only an little touch up has been done to it
from when I got the truck.
I Replaced almost every piece of
Chrome trim, bumpers, emblems, and
The grill in the truck.
I was lucky enough to find a original set
of American Racing Wheels for it
to complete the vintage look.
This Truck has a Great Sound,
but not too loud.
The Ride Quality Is Great,
The brakes are as good as any modern truck really.
Everything was done top notch on this build,
and With well designed parts.
I also Replaced the door gaskets, window felts,
carpet and had the Seat Recovered.
The windshield and gasket is new.
The doors open and close easy
and are tight.
I Relocated the Fuel Tank to the Rear Frame Rail
with a hidden fuel fill inthe bed.
I just put in a Kenwood CD Player and
New Speakers. This Truck is the Right One for someone
that wants Vintage but Modern performance.
