Vehicle Description

All vehicle trades considered including classics and performance.  We can assist with financing and shipping as needed.

This 1972 Chevrolet C10 restomod has all the right ingredients for a great classic truck.  It is a factory short box from what has been called the most desirable C10 year of all time.  There is a modern drivetrain with an LS-based fuel injected engine and automatic overdrive transmission.  A full air ride suspension.  Big aluminum wheels with front and rear disc brakes.  An eye-popping TMI interior with a digital dash and air conditioning.  And so much more as described below.  And while these types of builds often command six figures, this one gets it done for less.

With fewer than 2,000 miles on the build, this C10 was repainted its original two-tone colors of Hugger Orange and White as shown on the original glove box label.  This is a fantastic combination, especially on this type of build; it’s almost like Chevy was planning for this back in 1972.  The body is nicely highlighted by the side moldings along with the shiny front bumper and rear roll pan.  The “wow” factor continues to grow with the gorgeous wooden bed and bright stainless strips.  The big Showwheels aluminum wheels (18” front, 20” rear) look right at home and wear Toyo tires.  With the Airlift Performance suspension you can have a span of ride heights and looks, from down-in-the-weeds to 4x4. 

The engine is a 5.3L LM7 from a modern Silverado.  This Generation III Vortec motor has seen some top end work including a more aggressive camshaft and a corresponding tune.  With an estimated 350 hp and 400 ft-lb it really moves this C10 and also has a great sound through the headers and dual exhaust.  Note the smoothed firewall and custom sheetmetal under the hood for an ultra smooth look.  The transmission is a matching 4L60E automatic overdrive unit with a performance torque converter and shift kit.  In addition to the full air suspension, other mechanical equipment includes power steering and power 4-wheel disc brakes.

The TMI interior is simply stunning!  The black and plaid bucket seats flank a custom center console with two cupholders.  The door panels and headliner use the same materials for a complete, finished look throughout the cabin.  The dashboard maintains the basic factory appearance but now houses a modern set of Dakota Digital gauges along with a digital radio and dual USB jacks.  There is also a set of Vintage Air HVAC controls.  Additional features include a tilt steering column with a gear indicator that includes overdrive.  The wipers, horn, lights, turn signals, and parking brake all work properly.  Note there are no seat belts which maintains a clean appearance; we can add these if interested. 

The 1967-1972 second generation C10 has made its mark as one of the most desirable (and expensive) classic pickups on the market.  This one represents the family well with the look, sound, and performance that can make these trucks so appealing.  And while other offerings might have some of this example’s features, few of them pull it all together like this one.
