1968 Chevy C10 Short Bed Custom Restomod
We just acquired this 1968 Chevy C10 Short Bed Custom Restomod! Not your average grandpa’s old beater pickup truck here with a lifeless 305 and a 3 on the tree that you still to this day can’t figure out how to drive. This C10 was frame up restored with lots of aftermarket custom features from the drivetrain, to the suspension, interior, down to the body work and paint! Set with a 383 Stroker that is estimated to produce over 500 hp. One of the best parts about this truck is it is equipped with a 4L80E Automatic Overdrive Transmission. This means you have a wicked 1st Gear to do some massive peelouts but can quietly cruise on the highway at 70-80 mph like a modern car. Nothing like Grandpa’s old beater!
Something look a bit different about the exterior? We’re glad you noticed because this entire truck features a full trim delete all the way around for that ultimate modern matchbox looking truck. Even the door handles were deleted but not to worry it does have a full keyless entry system. Press the button on your remote and the door opens right away!
Suspension is all tubular and has many custom powdercoated parts underneath. Frame was even custom painted tan to match the interior! Even the leaf spring rear suspension was totally converted to a modern coil suspension for ultimate handling and comfortability on the road.
Check back soon as this truck will be listed for sale after it is complete and ready for its new owner!
