1975 Chevrolet C30 Dually
Restomod (restoration plus modern parts/technology) draws from all
the amazing advancements in automobile technology over the past 40
plus years to enhance the performance, comfort and safety of the
classic car. A restomod car has the timeless appearance of the
original, but the outdated guts of the car have been replaced with
the more modern, high-performance parts of today. You achieve the
same great look, but your vintage car will be revved up with all
the latest bells and whistles to create a much better ride for the
For consignment a wild ride in C30 dually trimmings. Worked over to
be bagged lower, a custom bed added and lifted from the frame to
allow for a fuel cell, awesome 22 inch Budd wheels wrapped in low
profile tires and a 5.9 liter diesel that can tow a train. Now
you're talking trucking in style, and you will be the only one on
your block with such a creation.
The elongated crew cab complete with 4 doors and plenty of room is
bathed in white with some buckskin paint to add just a bit of
contrast. As we move down the pillars, hood, and sides take on more
Buckskin paint which is interrupted in the middle by a wide strip
of white with a surround of airbrushed trim. This strip runs from
front to rear tailgate and back to the front again and is bordered
by that amazing airbrush artistry. The only breakup is a wide
fender to accommodate the dual rear wheels and tires, and this is
bathed in pure buckskin. White bumpers add to the color changes,
and up front a white bumper and the original egg crate chromed and
bowtie grille, looking original is framing the single headlights.
The bed has been raised, and the inside of the bed on the metal is
all Buckskin and all looking good. Pine boards complete the bed,
and these have chromed dividers, are stained a complimentary
mahogany stain, and then varnished to give a bowling alley like
feel to the bed. All chrome trim is nicely preserved and looking
just fine on this long low rider.
Beautifully redone in their original configuration the door panels
are white, buckskin, tan and black, and have shiny levers and
window cranks. Gold carpeting covers the bottom quarter of these
panels. Turning out attention to the interior of the truck, we see
tuck and roll buckskin inserts in a field of clean white bolsters,
in bench form. The original GM dash stares us in the face when
behind the wheel sports speckle paint, and a tricky drilled Impala
steering wheel in light tan and white with plenty of chrome can be
seen fronting this multi gauged and toggled dash. Vintage air is
installed but needs a charge. Gold carpeting floods the floors and
a large comfortable rear bench in the same pattern and colors as
the front stretches from second door to second door. A large tall
gearshift lever rises almost to the ceiling and has a saddle faux
leather boot. The headliner is nicely glued to the molded ceiling
and is in very light tan.
A 5.9 Liter Cummins Diesel with diesel injection, a towing can and
a Holeset turbo that whistles at you when you stomp on the
accelerator. This engine has a fire ringed head, and a ceramic
coated manifold. An NV4500 5-speed manual transmission is behind
and a 14 bolt 3.42 geared rear axle is on back to spin the rear
tires. All this raw power is looking clean and awesome under the
long hood. Very nicely done just as the rest of the truck.
We could not get this big boy on our lift, but we can see clean and
rust-free structural steel, and all painted in the Buckskin color
with black accenting. The frame has been back halved behind the cab
and it has a 4 link with a watts link and has a heavy 3.46 tubing
so you can tow...a LOT! All hard plumbed air lines in stainless,
and all else in as much stainless as is available for the add ons.
An engine drive compressor runs the airbags and has a backup
compressor in electric sitting by just in case.
Starts right up and runs fantastic. Sounds like a big rig and has
plenty of power. Surprisingly easy to shift and drives like a small
truck with a smooth ride.
A great and powerful C30 with fantastic mechanicals that should
prove to be bulletproof in many situations, and all high-end
materials used in the build. A real looker and a strong cooker,
you'll be spewing out smoke from the engine and the tires very
