Flashy muscle cars are fun and polished customs are nice, but there's really nothing cooler than a well-done truck. No gimmicks, no frills and no posturing: just power and presence - LOTS of presence. This exceptionally clean C10 is a traditional stunner that mixes 350 cubic inches of Chevrolet V8 with a proven driveline, crisp aesthetics and a frame-off, nut-and-bolt restoration. And if you're looking for a cool classic that's both road ready and show-ready, it's the perfect way to cruise the scene and turn some heads!
RED, WHITE AND CHEVY
Sorted, solid and ready to roll, this sweet Action Line C10 is the beneficiary of a professional, 3-year restoration that was completed by Reflections Paint & Body Works of Belmont, North Carolina. That reboot makes excellent use of a roster of stainless fasteners and vivid Viper Red 2-stage paint. And that 2-stage stays smooth and silky over an array of tasteful custom touches. At the front of the truck, a polished grille centers a broad ""CHEVROLET"" script between small parking lamps, clean headlights and a polished bumper. Above that grille, smoothed hood seams front polished wipers, which clear a factory big-window cab that's decked in 1963 C10 Custom stainless. At the sides of that glass, small pillar mirrors reflect a stainless-trimmed profile that's finished with traditional door handles, smoothed fender seams and a frenched, power-operated antenna. Behind that antenna, stainless-trimmed wood centers a relocated fuel filler between filled stake pockets. And at the back of the truck, a second polished bumper frames a massaged tailgate and clear taillights.
THERE'S NOTHING MORE CHEVY THAN A SMALL BLOCK
Activate the truck's painted hood supports and you'll find 350 cubic inches of proven GM crate engine that's good for a solid 290 horsepower straight from the factory. At that top of that 4-bolt mill, a polished air cleaner feeds wind to a Lokar-controlled Edelbrock carburetor, which rides a lightweight Edelbrock intake. At the back of that intake, a hot HEI distributor swirls fire around polished Edelbrock valve covers with the help of loomed 8mm silicone wires. Between those wires, a Summit cam bumps hydraulic, flat tappet lifters. Exhaust exits through stainless steel block hugger headers. Billet pulleys spin a polished water pump between a polished alternator, a polished AC compressor and a polished power steering pump. An aluminum radiator floats a polished water tube around an electric puller fan. And the smooth, Viper Red engine bay is spiced with niceties like polished breathers, a polished dipstick and a polished expansion tank.
RESTORED TO BE BETTER
Bottom-side, a restored factory frame rides a restored factory suspension that complements lowering springs, lowering blocks and lowering spindles with Belltech Complete Performance shocks. The 350's power flows through a Turbo-Hydramatic 350 3-speed that was rebuilt by Miller's Transmission of Gastonia, North Carolina. That gearbox leads a trusty 12-bolt axle that, thanks to Gastonia, North Carolina's CS Motorsports, spins a posi-traction differential around 3.08 gears. Turns come courtesy of fluid power steering. Stops come courtesy of a polished brake booster, which jolts Inline Tube calipers and factory drums. Aluminized pipes funnel spent gases through Flowmaster mufflers and polished stainless tips. A relocated, 17-gallon fuel tank provides a steady flow of fossils. And everything rolls on polished blades, which spin 255/50R17 Hankook Ventus STs.
KEEP IT SIMPLE
In the '60s, trucks were all about comfort and utility " not DVDs, wireless and navigation systems. That's why it's so refreshing to hop in the cab of this purposeful but nicely appointed C10. The star of the show is a leather-wrapped bench seat that's been tastefully paired with premium carpet, rugged floor mats and custom kick panels. At the front of the cockpit, a chrome-trimmed dash hangs rebuilt factory telemetry between a custom tach, billet pedals and modern air conditioning that's controlled by a factory panel. Modern, direct-fit audio bumps tunes to Kicker kick panel speakers. And the driver spins an attractive Impala steering wheel around a tilting, color-keyed column.
When it comes to performance, durability and sheer Americana, nothing beats an old school GM workhorse. Thanks to a high-quality restoration, this stunning C10 wraps a hot drivetrain in a capable chassis and crisp aesthetics. Ready to stand out from the crowd?
