For Sale: 1968 Chevrolet C10 in Lithia Springs, Georgia

Vehicle Description

We've had a lot of Chevy pickups come through our showroom, but quite frankly NONE have approached the incredible design and build quality of this 1968 Chevrolet C10 Restomod. From the nearly perfect Ruby Red paint, to the spectacular black leather interior, to the thumping LS7 427 V8 under the hood, and the No Limit chassis underneath, it delivers show-dominating looks and offers otherworldly performance and comfort for those who love to drive. Stop looking, this is the best-of-the-best.

You already know from the price that this truck is something special. There's not an inch on it that hasn't been painstakingly restored and brought up to an extremely high level, yet despite all the work that went into this open-checkbook restoration, it's still 100% recognizable as one of Chevy's finest pickups. The Action Line pickups were also dubbed the 'Glamour Line' for a reason, and even though the restorers had this sheetmetal down to bare metal and had the truck off-the-frame and completely apart, they resisted temptation and instead put the exterior back-to-stock. No shaved drip rails, no chopped top, not even any deleted bumpers or trim. The builders had so much respect for the original Chevy design that they elected not to alter it, although they certainly improved upon in it in the sheer quality of this build. No C10 ever looked this good when it was new, and the laser-straight body, precise gaps, and essentially perfect panel alignment can attest to that. The Ruby Red paint is flat-out gorgeous, we'd give it a '10', but in this subjective business there's no such thing as perfect, and when we went over it with a fine-toothed comb we found maybe one or two miniscule flaws. That's pretty darn impressive for a truck that's logged 10,241 since it was finished, which not only speaks to the extremely level of build quality, but also how it's been impeccably cared for ever since. White stripes were painted on the hood and tailgate and then buried under gallons of clearcoat, and we have to admit we love the look. Obviously, the inside of the bed was completely reworked to account for the new chassis and narrowed/tubbed rear end, but it too was finished to show standards and drowned in excellent matching paint. All the shiny chrome and brightwork is in excellent shape, the LED headlights set a modern tone up front, and the smoked glass adds to the C10's mysterious and tough-guy demeanor. It's flat-out gorgeous.

The interior is every bit as 'over-restored' as the bodywork, with incredible craftsmanship and high-end materials throughout. Beautifully stitched leather seat covers on the sculpted, split-back bench seat update the C10's formerly bare-bones interior, and the slick-black upholstery looks amazing against the Ruby Red paint that covers all the exposed steel inside the cabin. That two-tone theme continues into the stock door panels, immaculate dash, and plush black carpets that line and insulate the floors, and it's obvious that nobody with dirty shoes or an untucked shirt was ever allowed to sit inside this truck. The overall shape of Chevy's original instrument panel remains intact, but it's now encased in a polished billet panel and the gauges inside are upgraded AutoMeter ProComp dials framed by a custom, leather-wrapped billet steering wheel mounted atop a tilt column. The padded portion of the dash was upholstered to match the seat, a Pioneer AM/FM/CD/AUX head unit was installed to provide the entertainment, and a full Vintage Air A/C system was seamlessly integrated into the dash so you'll never have to worry about long highway drives in warm weather. And those that loved vintage horseshoe shifters in Camaros and Chevelles will certainly appreciate the Kilduff Shifter mounted atop the transmission hump. This is simply one of the coolest interiors that we've ever seen, and the fact that it doesn't stray far from the original course is what makes it so special.

A thundering fuel-injected 427 LS7 V8 under the hood gives this truck performance to match its looks. The modern GM Performance block shaves weight as well as builds horsepower (factory rated out of the crate at an astounding 570HP and 540 lb-ft of torque) and it's topped by big fuel injectors, a Billet Specialties LS7 pulley kit, a modern cold air intake system, and it's all impeccably wired together with a Painless wiring harness. There's a lot of polished and billet parts throughout, including the chromed alternator and upgraded power brake system, and the insanely slick Ruby Red engine bay with its smoothed firewall and inner fenders was obviously prepped and finished before the big block went in. A GM Performance crate 6L80E 6-speed automatic transmission easily handles the big block's power, and it spins a narrowed Currie 9-inch rear end that can handle off-the-line explosions and top-speed highway performance alike. We've supplied a lot of undercarriage photos to show how amazing this truck is from below, including that powder-coated, top-of-the-line No Limit chassis (look them up if you don't know them they're arguably the best C10 chassis in the world) that features a fully independent front suspension and a parallel 4-link with a panhard bar out back, Wilwood 4-wheel disc brakes with drilled and slotted rotors, giant sway bars, QA1 coilovers, and modern power rack-and-pinion steering. The custom Borla dual exhaust system sounds better than anything you'll find on the radio, and the stance is finished by a timeless set of 20-inch American Racing Torque Thrust wheels wrapped in 245/45/20 front and 345/30/20 Michelin rubber.

Built for show yet absolutely functional, this nut-and-bolt restored pickup embodies vastly more work than your average C10 restomod. If you want the best, your search is over. Call today!
