For Sale: 1981 Chevrolet C10 in Ft Worth, Texas

Vehicle Description

The right stance and color combination can make or break any vehicle, and this 1981 Chevy C10 Restomod looks simply awesome slammed and raked in its two-tone Copper and Cream outfit. "Over-restored" is the phrase that comes to mind when we try to describe this slick Squarebody Chevy, because everywhere we look we find an abundance of awesomeness. That may sound a little cringey, but check out the rest of the hit list: a gorgeous, leather-bound cabin stuffed with A/C, digital gauges, and a booming stereo system that'll rattle your neighbor's teeth loose. Choice options like power steering, power front disc brakes, an upgraded performance suspension that keeps it planted to the road, and a smooth-shifting 4L60E 4-speed automatic transmission that's perfectly equipped for the challenges of modern-day driving. And we haven't even gotten to the best part yet. Under the hood lies an impeccably organized symphony of harnessed internal combustion, via a fuel-injected 5.3L Supercharged Gen IV V8 that was putting out 537HP at 11-pounds of boost last time the rear wheels were hooked to the Dyno. Take a closer look but do so quickly as this slick Texas truck is a one-of-a-kind build that seems to do everything right, which means it won't last long...

Recently restored between 2020-2021, this Squarebody Muscle truck has only logged 2,918 since it was completed, and all that high-end work still looks incredibly fresh today. First-off, the paint looks awesome, and we absolutely love that the builders selected a factory-style color combination that totally exudes an '80s vibe, albeit with a bit of a modern twist thanks to modern materials. The Copper and Cream colors work together so well we've already heard plenty of "now why didn't I think of that" comments from some of the local pros that regularly visit our showroom, and the paint was laid down to such a high standard we can tell their all scrambling to up their own gamesmanship to try and match it. Truly, this is one of the better paint jobs you'll ever see on a Box Chevy pickup, and even the Copper pinstripe that separates the two colors was painted-on with an expert's touch. It's not perfect, after all it was built to be driven and enjoyed, and once we broke out the microscope we found a couple minor imperfections that were packed up in the last 3K miles, but we're talking really small stuff that does NOTHING to take away from this Chevy's MASSIVE curb appeal. Paint can't look this good without excellent bodywork, and the sheetmetal on this truck is laser-straight, gaps are precise, and the panels align better than any truck from '80s. Keen eyes probably noticed the anachronistic front clip - swapped-in from the '89-'91 Chevy design - which is a good thing because that happens to be one of the most popular grille/headlight designs that the Bowtie Boys ever put out. Along with the chin spoiler, lowered stance, and oversized Weld wheels, this truck has been transformed from a work tool to a show pony that's ready to turn heads and take names. With that being said it is still a functional pickup, and the bed was professionally lined with black spray-in bedliner should you ever want to haul anything away from Home Depot. Chrome bumpers front and rear give the truck an upscale look and you'll be impressed by how tightly the stainless wheel arch trim and lower body molding hug the lower edges of the body.

Looks don't mean much if you can't get comfortable behind the wheel, and this Chevy features an ergonomically designed leather cabin packed with cold A/C and a booming stereo system, not to mention a host of upgrades. A custom dark brown leather bench was upholstered along with matching door panels, a taut headliner, and a neatly stitched dash, elevating this cabin from blue collar to white. All the exposed steel inside, including the lower portion of the dash, was painted Copper to match the exterior, and plush carpets with sound-deadening materials underneath insulate the cabin. Upgraded hardware includes a wood-rimmed tilt steering wheel, a full array of Dakota Digital gauges, and an upgraded stereo system featuring a Kenwood AM/FM/AUX/BT head unit that powers aftermarket tweeters and speakers in the door cards and a couple booming Addison subwoofers behind the seat. An R134a A/C system was neatly fit into the center stack, while the tinted windows also help keep the temperature at bay.

A collection of top tier components was assembled together to make this C10 an outstanding driver, starting with a Generation IV 5.3L LS V8. But that wasn't enough power for the petrol-heads at Extreme LSX Garage here in Texas, so those wild boys added on a TSP Velocity aluminum intake, 80-lb fuel-injectors, ceramic-coated long-tube headers, a Procharger aluminum ProRace blow-off valve, Procharger intercooler, and a giant TorqStorm billet supercharger that all work together to turn this C10 from grocery-getter to pink-slip stealer. Dyno'd at 537HP on 11lbs of boost, it's obviously very powerful, but it was also built and tuned in such a way that it can still be driven and enjoyed daily. The engine bay is gorgeous, with glossy black inner fenders and a Copper firewall providing the backdrop for all the billet components shined-up throughout, and the soundtrack from the X-pipe dual exhaust system is downright erotic. The engine's only logged 2918 miles and is in top form, paired with a 4L60E 4-speed automatic augmented with a billet Circle D torque convertor to help handle all that power, while spinning a 10 bolt 4.10 posi rear end. Power steering and power front disc brakes improve handling, and those killer Weld Racing wheels wrapped in sticky 305/35/20 Firestones finish off the look perfectly.

Clean Squarebodies are getting scarce, and you'll have a hard time find a better combination of beauty and brawn than this '81 Restomod. Call today!
