This 1964 Chevrolet C10 restomod has the right attitude for a true
muscle machine. After all, the unmistakable vintage shape is joined
by a very modern look on the paint, great alloys, an aggressive
stance, custom A/C interior, overdrive transmission, and serious
fuel-injected modern V8 power. And it's all on a build with less
than 875 miles on it!
A well-restored C10 from this generation always looks great. After
all, these have an hourglass-like tapering in the waistline that
starts on the hood and runs uninterrupted along both sides. There
are even great details like the real oak wood in the truck bed.
Plus, it has the desirable big back window cab. But you weren't
attracted to this one just for its vintage style. Instead, we know
it's the serious attitude that makes the real first impression. The
gold paint has a modern satin metallic finish that instantly draws
a crowd and signals this is an upgraded package. Plus, the bronze
metallic paint on the roof, B-pillars, bumpers, grille, and side
trim offer a well-coordinated and subtle two-tone to delight those
who look at the details. And modern pieces like the projector
headlights and the color-matched Raceline Bandit 20-inch alloys
wheels are well-integrated to create a very thoughtful
The golden glow continues inside on this upgraded interior. The
seat has the custom contouring and rivets to look like a vintage
racecar. Thoughtful upgrades are nicely integrated, like the
cold-blowing R134a air conditioning, cup holders, and an AM/FM/CD
stereo w/Bluetooth. There's an upgraded wood-rimmed sports steering
wheel on a tilt column, and it gives you a terrific view of the
crisp and modern Dakota Digital gauge package.
Under the hood may just be your favorite upgrade of them all. The
color-matched and ultra-tidy inner fenders and firewall give an
award-worthy presentation to the modern motor in the middle. Such
low mileage on the build means an exceptionally fresh look, and we
dare you to find another component that can be polished on this V8.
The consignor states that this is a 5.7-liter fuel-injected LS1
motor, and that it has been given a performance build that includes
a 228R cam and a Professional Products throttle body. So yes, there
is serious power behind this style. There's even the right
supporting pieces, like March pulleys and a large aluminum
radiator. The consignor states the 460LE four-speed automatic
transmission was also rebuilt, and so it can handle the stout power
while also delivering overdrive comfort. The C10's suspension was
already a good candidate for a restomod with its trailing arm rear,
and now that has been enhanced with upgraded shocks and a rear sway
bar. Add in power steering, power brakes w/discs up front, and wide
modern tires, and this is the fuel-injected truck that's made to
enjoy near or far.
The consignor states there's $60k in this build, and it's easy to
see at least that much investment. So if you love a custom classic
that's both easy to drive and great to show, don't miss this
restomod. Call now!
