Originally built for work and hauling, the Chevrolet C10 has come a long way from its origins, due to its popularity in the hot rod community. This 1972 short-bed pickup is a great example of that. Immediately noticeable is the lowered stance, thanks to a full Porter Built air suspension system with notched rear frame and bed for clearance. Controlling the air suspension is a RideTech E3 controller with self-leveling, and three ride-height presets for ease of use. Under the hood is a fuel-injected 6.0-liter LS engine with Comp Cams valve springs and pushrods backed by a 4L60E automatic transmission. The truck rolls on 20-inch Center Line wheels, stopped by a set of Wilwood disc brakes all the way around. The interior is restored to near original condition, with a modern stereo and Vintage Air added for driving comfort.
This truck offers the best of all worlds, with the turn-key readiness of a modern engine, classic stylings of a C10 and the cool factor of a custom hot rod. It’s ready to hit the streets and cruise.
