A lifted, short-bed 1972 Chevrolet K10 stepside is always going to
get your attention. But as you take a closer look at this classic
4x4, you're actually going to see a far more modern setup donated
from a 2005 GMC Yukon. It's a full swap that includes the frame,
suspension, four-wheel disc brakes, overdrive transmission, and
fuel-injected V8. So take some extra time to see the full
investment in this very cool and very useful restomod.
This is the kind of build that we dream of doing but few put in the
work to get it done. The VIN of the body is a C10 short bed, and
the VIN and chassis belong to a more modern GMC that had a
relatively low 67k miles when transplanted. And the Chalk Grey
paint is a modern color applied in 2022. It helps show off
everything from the beefy lines to the rounded fenders of the
stepside bed. This goes for a modern look with color-matched
bumpers, LED headlights, and deleted badges. And there are good
fundamentals, right down to the pliable window gaskets for a
thoughtful classic. It's an impressive style, but your overall
impression should be about a classic pickup that likes to be as
useful as a modern truck. So the cool stepside bed has a steel
floor and full liner paint protecting it. The lifted stance and
hefty all-terrain tires are great for real 4x4 duty, and the
overall presentation isn't a "soft-roader" that's afraid to hit the
The interior continues the upgraded style. The diamond-stitch
leather seat is a terrific upgrade where it has a hint of the
classic bench look, but now you have individual contouring, plenty
of cushioning, and even integrated cup holders. The door panels
were also done to match. You'll love slipping behind the woodgrain
billet steering wheel mounted on a polished tilt column. It gives
you a clear view to the glowing fully upgraded gauge package. There
are even some cool modern amenities like an AM/FM/XM/CD stereo with
Bluetooth, and this is now utilizing a keyless ignition.
The engine bay has the unmistakable look of a modern powerhouse.
After all, the Vortec name was decades away in Chevy's world when
this truck was produced. Instead, this 5.3-liter fuel-injected V8
is part of the Yukon's donation. But the part you'll like best from
the modern GMC is the 4x4 drivetrain. It's a modern setup that
gives you the usual choices of Hi, Lo, and RWD settings, but it's
all done with a push-button. And the 4WD Auto function is
especially handy for everyday life. Other features that make this
an easy driver include four-wheel power disc brakes, power
steering, and a four-speed automatic transmission with overdrive.
Plus, the modern GMC chassis impressively improves the ride quality
over any 1970s truck you've ever driven.
This is the C10 with a cool custom look that delivers both style
and substance. It makes for a total package you need to get your
hands on right now. Call today!!!
