You can instantly tell this 1973 Chevrolet C10 Custom is far from
stock. This pickup has been thoroughly customized inside and out to
be a heck of a lot of fun. So from the extra meaty rear tires, to
the air ride suspension, to the growling exhaust, and the powerful
V8, you know you're looking at a great muscle truck value.
This truck instantly makes a statement in a very cool way. The full
teal treatment definitely makes this pickup stand out in a crowd.
As people get closer, it's clear there's a good amount of time
invested in making the whole truck looking clean. You can see it up
front with the painted bumper and billet grille that gives the
blocky Chevy some sleek looks. Speaking of sleek, the cowl hood has
a smooth rise against this glossy paint to deliver a nice performed
impression. The crisp bodywork means the sides are also smooth. But
people might be really paying more attention to the polished Weld
Racing wheels that show how wide the rear ones are. And for those
who pick up on that aggressive detail, the custom bed that's tubbed
is a dead giveaway to this truck's added performance.
Inside the teal continues on the metal pieces, and it nicely
coordinates with the factory-style green on the door panels and
dash pad. You even get the classic Chevy cup holder center console.
But now it's flanked by to modern bucket seats that have large
headrests and comfy bolstering. You get the classic Chevy
dual-spoke steering wheel and a classic dash with factory gauges.
But you'll also notice all the right upgrades surrounding it, like
the retro-style AM/FM/cassette stereo, large AutoMeter tach w/shift
light, and full controls for the Ride Tech air ride suspension.
It's a clean total setup that's just another reminder of the
thoughtfulness of the work that has gone into this truck.
Under the hood is a clean-looking Chevy 350 cubic-inch V8. It
inhales deeply with an Edelbrock four-barrel carburetor and
Edelbrock aluminum intake. And it exhales with authority as Hedman
headers add power while contributing to the rumble of the dual
exhaust. But whenever you really want to bring the thunder, just
engage the electric cutoffs so they can fear you just by the
ferocious sound. You already know that you can control the ride
height from the cab, but you need to look at the undercarriage
photos to appreciate the full suspension investment. You have
reinforced tubular A-arms up front, and in the rear, you have
ladder bars w/diagonal link. A 12-bolt rear and wide Mickey
Thomason Sportsman tires bring the power to the pavement, and front
disc brakes do a terrific job of stopping. Add in the three-speed
automatic transmission and power steering, and this is the
performance pickup that's easy to also use for a Sunday Funday.
Bold looks, bold power, and all the right investments deliver the
classic truck you've always wanted. So don't let it slip away. Call
