This is a true 1972 Chevy K10 with the original 1972 option-based
utility bed. The corrosion-free body has been completely
sandblasted with metal and bodywork done for a top-tier finish.
It's finished in PPG Lead Foot Gray and Heron White two-tone paint
with contrasting blacked-out trim for a modern yet classic style.
The entire truck has been outfitted with all-new weatherstripping
and glass. The utility bed has been completely restored with black
stained wood, color-matched bedliner inside and out, and a
custom-made rear bumper with steps. Inside the doors is
powder-coated shelving with LED backlighting. The bed is also
finished with a two-tone hand-pinstriped Gloss Black line. A set of
17-inch American Racing wheels come wrapped in 37-inch BFGoodrich
KM3 white letter tires. The chassis has been completely reworked
and all holes have been welded. It features TIG-welded
custom-fabricated crossmembers, suspension hangars and shackles.
The chassis is finished with a fully polished 3-inch TIG-welded
stainless-steel exhaust completely with MagnaFlow mufflers. In
addition, 8-lug Dana axles were installed along with FOX 2.0
shocks. This K10 is powered by a completely rebuilt 454ci V8 Chevy
big-block engine refinished in Hugger Orange with hand-pinstriped
valve covers backed by a Turbo 400 automatic transmission and
rebuilt NP205 transfer case. Other mechanical highlights include
new MSD ignition, Holley Demon Delivery fuel system, and a Griffen
aluminum radiator complete with all-stainless-steel lines and
hoses. The body, chassis and engine are tied together with a
professionally installed American Autowire harness. Keeping this
K10 filled is a 24-gallon Boyd aluminum fuel cell. The interior
features a distressed black Snowden bench seat, color-matched
Classic Instruments gauges, an all-new tilt steering column and
brand-new Vintage Air system. A RetroSound head unit is installed
in the dash and plays through two Pioneer 5.5-inch speakers and one
12-inch subwoofer inside a custom-made enclosure. Every nut, bolt
and bushing was replaced during this K10's restoration. Well over
800 hours were invested into the build, with nothing left
