1985 Chevrolet C10 Custom Pickup
The 1985 C10 model of truck falls into a group known as the square bodys and these pickups, especially in recent years, have become extremely popular. The generation that grew up seeing these trucks around is now able to go out and purchase the classic they always wanted and clubs are popping up all over the place dedicated to this type vintage of truck alone. The body is very straight and coated in a nice Black paint. The 4 inch cowl hood and tailgate are accented by very cool Red metal flake stripes which feature very light airbrushed ghost flames. The front bumper is painted to match and the rear bumper has been removed and replaced with a custom roll pan that utilizes Chevy bowtie taillights and a grill behind the license plate. An after market chrome grill was also added up front and hides the headlights which completely changes up the look. The truck has a great stance and sits on a set of 15 inch Centerline Convo Pro wheels with 31x18x15 rear Mickey Thompson tires.
All that rubber isn't just for appearance because this pickup now has a Speedway Blueprint 496 big block motor that has no problem getting those tires spinning. The engine runs very well and has been dressed up nicely to be show ready. Gloss Black 572 valve covers combined with multiple billet and chrome parts have it looking just as good as it drives. It has been built up with dual four barrel Edelbrock carbs, Hooker Supercomp ceramic coated headers, 496 roller aluminum heads and a roller cam which all bring it to around 590 horsepower. The turbo 350 transmission (3500 stall) works well with the engine and sends power back to the 10 bolt 3.73 positraction rear end. To help make room for those tires the rear was tubbed and an aftermarket back half kit was added. Other nice features include the 4 wheel power disk brakes, power steering, and electric windows.
Take a look on the inside and you will find the custom Red and Black upholstered bench seat. The headliner is done in Red to match and the door panels also feature Red accents. Aluminum bezels and trim now line the dash which features a lot of the original controls and aftermarket Black Autometer gauges. Other nice customizations include the Grant GT steering wheel and all billet levers on the tilt steering column. The bed is coated in a Black liner and is where you will find the Optima batter in battery box, fuel cell and a kill switch.
This is an extremely cool pickup that is really fun to drive so if your in the market for a vintage truck with a lot of style it may be the one for you!
