For Sale: 1980 Chevrolet C10 in Ft Worth, Texas

Vehicle Description

This 1980 Chevrolet C10 Silverado Restomod pickup is the direct result of someone taking an early 'Square Body' and turning it up to 11. With a killer lowered stance, a strong-running fuel-injected 5.7L LS1 Vortec V8, an array of solid options, comfy interior, and a attention-grabbing blue paint job, it's got a unique look that totally works and turn heads everywhere it goes. Take a closer look, because this slammed stepside Chevy is a very cool truck.

The builders of this truck threw all caution and subtlety into the wind during the restoration, electing a loud color and a wicked stance to go along with all that added pop under the hood. With that vivid blue finish, it's got a clean look that seems a lot more customized than it is, and it really holds up well under scrutiny. Sure, it's not without its imperfections, but we're talking fairly minor stuff here, as this top driver-quality finish has a complete, high-end look that you might not expect for a truck at that price point that was built to be driven and enjoyed. Despite the low, wide look, this C10 is composed of stock bodywork, from the hood up front to the tailgate out back, and we love that the builder's showed restraint and just let the original GM design speak for itself. The door handles haven't been shaved, the top's not chopped, and the mirrors are still in place as well, resulting in a clean, factory look that makes the lowered stance and bright paint job look even more impressive. A black eggcrate grille is still in place up front, complete with a yellow Bowtie badge straight from the late-'70s/early-'80s, the running lights have clear lenses, and the original taillights out back are mounted at the flanks of that simple, clean tailgate. Chrome bumpers fore and aft really pop against the blue paint and one look in the beautifully finished, wood-floor bed proves that this truck hasn't worked for a living in a long, long time.

The interior was nicely upgraded at the time of the build yet still manages to still keep a mostly stock-style vibe, with a comfortable, deeply sculpted bench seats that can surprisingly seat three, or two if you want to actually use the cup holders inside the middle console. Those are high-end hides on the seat, with perforated inserts that wear like iron and help the upholstery breathe on hot days, and the modern-looking seat works rather well with the rest of the C10's interior. Matching black door panels were upholstered to mirror the seat, as was the beautifully stitched dash pad, while there's a taut headliner above and plush black carpets below, showing that nothing was overlooked inside. All the exposed steel inside the cab was painted the same color as the exterior, and that shade really comes to life against all the black components inside, including the thick-rimmed, 3-spoke steering wheel and aforementioned center console that features extra storage, cup holders, and a Kenwood AM/FM/BT multi-media head unit. That upgraded stereo powers great-sounding aftermarket speakers installed in custom-made housings in the kick panels and behind the seat, which is great because you'll need to turn the tunes way up to drown out the epic sounds of the LS1 under the hood. The Silverado-spec gauge bezel ahead of the driver is lined with wood applique that really warms things up inside, and it's now filled with a full array of AutoMeter gauges that keep a close eye on the upgraded LS1. This cabin is clean, tight, and ready to use right now.

Power comes from Chevy's rugged 5.7 liter Vortec LS1 V8, which has been a mainstay in pickups for quite a while. Neatly transplanted to retain modern OEM functionality, it looks like it was born inside the blacked-out engine bay, but it's running much better that anything we'd even heard of in 1980. With fuel injection, it starts quickly and runs beautifully and can be serviced at any Chevy dealer with no issues at all The responsive power and torque curve is very impressive transplanted in this relatively lightweight truck, enhanced by the engine's aluminum heads, cold-air intake and cone-style air filter, and long-tube headers. A modern 4-speed automatic transmission was also transplanted during the restoration, and with power steering and power front disc brakes, it's a real pleasure to drive in almost any weather condition. Thanks to the overdrive transmission, this is a nice highway cruiser that gets surprisingly good gas mileage for a full-sized, vintage pickup. Underneath, the chassis is very nicely finished, with upgraded suspension components and a throaty Flowmaster dual exhaust system that gives this C10 a fantastic soundtrack. Performance shocks and heavy-duty springs help lower the suspension and set that aggressive rake, which really emphasizes those flashy 20-inch US Mag wheels stuffed into the wheel wells and wrapped in staggered 245/45/20 front and 275/40/20 performance radials.

A cool vintage truck powered by modern GM hardware, teeming with sexy curb appeal. Come get this slick Square Body before your neighbor beats you to it. Call today!
