This is a true Purple People Eater. That's because this 1967
Chevrolet C10 pickup has a high-performance ZZ 427 crate V8. And as
you look through all the details, you'll see a sleek full custom
package that balances vibrant looks, comfy features, and true
street-eating performance components.
The huge shotgun-style air grabber in the hood draws as much
attention as the mirror-like shine of the front bumper and grille.
And speaking of shine, what's really striking is the paint. The
metallic purple is one of those expensive colors that goes down in
multiple layers, and the full restoration was done by a
professional shop. When you take it out on a sunny day, this finish
looks like it loves to consume all the light around it just so it
can radiate even brighter. This full shining package also extends
to the alloy wheels. Those 20-inch Riddlers love to show off the
sporty lowered stance and extra meaty rear tires. You're even going
to love the detail work, like the elimination of the side vent
windows, liner paint on the bed floor, and special sport mirrors
with matching purple pinstriping. And while the paint already looks
like it could glow in the dark, this one comes with a custom
package that includes LED halo headlights, LED tail lights, and
truck bed lighting. So as you look it all over, you can tell it is
a thoughtful and professional full build.
While the exterior is all about showing off power and style, the
interior adds plenty of comfort into the mix, too. It starts with
two racing bucket seats with full Simpson harnesses. There's a jump
seat in the middle, but you'll just like it better for folding down
to give you a cup holder center console. The door panels are a
custom presentation finished in leather and announce the power
under the hood. There are nice comfort upgrades such as power
windows, power locks, and provisions for R134a air conditioning (it
likely needs a recharge to blow cold again.) The radio is an
upgraded AM/FM/CD/XM touchscreen head unit with Bluetooth, and it
connects to a full stereo system featuring Phoenix Gold subwoofers.
This keeps you feeling good while you get down to speedy business.
There's a B&M shifter line-lock shifter, and the sports
steering wheel is mounted on a tilt column to give you a good view
of the full AutoMeter gauge package.
The motor may be a monster, but it's also ready for show time. The
smooth inner walls are color-matched to the truck, and it funnels
your attention to the tidy big block setup. Just like the door
panels, the valve covers clearly announce this is Chevrolet's
mighty 427 cubic inch V8. This aluminum head ZZ427 crate motor is a
big investment and offers serious power right out of the box, but
also there's much more going on here. Those dual air scoops peeking
out of the hood feed fresh air into the Holley four-barrel
carburetor and aluminum intake. Long tube headers add even more
power while contributing to the rumble of the dual exhaust. And
anytime you want to truly bring the thunder, there's a switch on
the dash for electric cutouts. While you're checking out this whole
package, don't forget to notice the quality supporting components,
like the serpentine belt system, Optima red top battery, steel
braided lines, and upgraded radiator with electric fans. The big V8
feeds a stout TH400 three-speed on its way to a strong 12-bolt rear
end. And you keep it all under control with ease thanks to power
steering, the desirable trailing arm rear suspension, and
four-wheel power disc brakes.
Complete with service manuals, be the envy of every muscle car out
there with an awesomely powerful and slick street truck. Call
