For Sale: 1983 Chevrolet C10 in Ft Worth, Texas

Vehicle Description

This 1983 Chevrolet C10 restomod is the kind of build that shows you a fresh style everywhere from the sleekness of the paint to the crisp pleats of the new seat. And when you give it this kind of cruiser feel and a terrific stance, nothing less than a fuel-injected LS-based upgrade under the hood will do. So dig into the details, because this one is the total package.

This truck loves to be distinct while keeping the classic Chevy style. You see it in the way they upgraded it to be sleeker with deleted badges and a flush rear roll pan. It lets the glossy Apple Red really highlight the well-defined pleats in the sheet metal that earns these trucks their "squarebody" nickname. But this also keeps the classic Silverado trim. It further highlights the good fit of the body panels while adding to the look of classic brightwork. More shine comes from paying attention to the little things and investing in newer items like the front bumper, large tow mirrors, wheel moldings, and even newer door handles. There are even the little things that make a nice difference, like the new badge-free grille and smoothed bed rails. Plus, some of the most attractive features are also the handiest. The fresh liner paint in the bed looks great and lets you do real chores on the weekend. And the Ridler wheels have a 20/22 inch front/rear stance for a sporty style that's furthered by a nice set of Pirelli Scorpion tires for enhanced grip.

The interior continues the stylish and useful upgrades in a fresh package. The seat, headliner, carpeting, door panels, and dash pad all have the feeling of a newer investment to make this quite an inviting atmosphere. There are features you want in a cruiser like power windows and upgraded Kenwood AM/FM/CD stereo w/USB and Bluetooth. There are also provisions in place for features like power locks and air conditioning if you choose to get them back in service. And the overall feeling is that they were really thinking about the driver during the restoration. You have a new smooth gauge panel, a sports steering wheel, a tilt column, and sporty aluminum pedals. Plus, the upgraded Dakota Digital readouts have a cool red glow to coordinate with the lower dash and exterior.

The engine bay is filled with fuel-injected LS-based Chevy Vortec V8 power. This 6.0-liter motor is known for being hardy, powerful, and versatile. And they took the time to make this upgraded powerhouse look like it has been here since day one. There are even some nice upgrades like a mild cam and long tube headers to give this a fun power driver feeling a terrific tune out of the Flowmaster mufflers. The newer brake booster, upgraded fuel lines, and dual electric fans are all there as part of a package that's both practical and fun. The TH400 three-speed transmission has a stout construction to handle the extra power from this motor, and it also provides smooth automatic shifting. Add in features like CPP tubular front control arms, power brakes, and front discs, and this is a sharp-looking pickup that's easy to cruise.

This is the truck that turns heads and has the power to be a ton of fun. It's everything you want, and it's ready to hit the streets right now. Call today!!!
