For Sale: 1968 Chevrolet C10 in Milford, Michigan

Vehicle Description

1968 Chevrolet C10 Short Bed - Fresh Restoration with LS Power & Auto Transmission.
Here is a chance to own a virtually brand new, extremely desirable, 1968 Chevy C10 in bright orange and cream. These trucks have a huge following and are very popular but it's not very often you come across an example in this condition AND available to purchase.
LaFontaine Classics is very pleased to offer this unbelievable 1968 C10 that is basically a hand built, completely refurbished, ""new"" truck from top to bottom. The restoration started by disassembling the entire truck down to the bare frame - this was the starting point.
Media blasting and painting the frame in semi-gloss black was step one of this build. The cab and bed were installed on a rotisserie where they underwent very detailed preparations including countless hours of ""blocking and sanding"" to be sure all of the surfaces were smooth and straight. Before removing from the rotisserie, the cab and bed were treated to multiple coats of bright orange and cream paint that makes this C10 stand out in a crowd.
Before the reassembly, the decision had already been made to have a finished product that looked and drove like a brand-new truck. With that in mind, most of the components installed on this project were either brand new, or completely restored to appear like new. The entire underside is painted semi-gloss black including the floorboards, new suspension, and rear axle. Under the hood you will find new inner fenders along with a new core support, again finished in the matching semi-gloss found underneath. Between the frame rails is a modern, aluminum headed, LS V-8 engine measuring 5.3 liters. This is the heart and soul that moves this beauty down the road with plenty of power to spare. These are very popular engines to transplant into classic cars and trucks because of their modern amenities including fuel injection, power steering, modern accessory drive, coil-on-plug ignition system and easy to source mounts and brackets. Our '68 is installed with a GM factory style wiring harness and stock ECU for simple plug-and-play installation. Transferring the power to the rear is a late model 4L60E 4-speed automatic transmission normally found in newer trucks, typically with the 5.3L engines. This transmission is also controlled by the same ECU that controls the engine - not a separate stand-alone system found in other builds. Exhaust duties are handled by a custom fabricated dual exhaust system including V-band clamped connection points and tail pipes exiting under the rear bumper. The finishing touch under the hood is the Vintage Air A/C system blowing ice cold air controlled by the factory dash mounted controls to keep the stock appearance.

Looking inside, you will find a gorgeous, completely stock appearing interior. The reconditioned factory dash houses the stock gauge cluster, heater controls, and a AM/FM Radio with a Cassette deck. Additional items include a tilt steering column with 3 spoke steering wheel, new gas and brake pedals, new door sill plates, weather stripping, new carpet with Dyna-mate sound deadening installed underneath, and the completely rebuilt/recovered houndstooth bench seat with shoulder belts.
This is the C10 above all others. It was built to appear stock, yet run and drive like a modern pick-up. The finished product is a perfect mix of old and new and the result exceeded the expectations. Don't hesitate to inquire on this one - it won't last long!
