You can instantly tell there's something special about this 1971 Chevrolet C10 454 Restomod. There are barely any miles on it since completion, so you get an outstandingly slick appearance. Plus, you have serious big block power, a custom A/C interior, upgraded suspension, and all the other details that make this a true stunner.
With less than 60 miles on the build (yes, under 60 miles!) this truck has a presence that will have people gravitating towards it. The fresh black paint has the ideal sleekness to give you the look of a dark mirror. When the sunlight hits it, it radiates as it highlights all the crisp angles of the restored body and its new sheetmetal (including the well-defined creases and sporty fender flares.) Plus, all the body's glossy black makes a terrific intimidating attitude that's furthered by the performance-minded upgrades. They expertly integrated details like an aggressive cowl hood, and re-located the gas cap to the bed for a sleeker body. Plus, the modern US Mags wheels have a large 20-inch size that draw added attention to the lowered suspension. And this all hints that you're going to like what's under the hood (more on that in a moment.)
The interior has been restored to give you the best of classic details and all the right upgrades. It starts with the western-style pattern on the door panels that made these C10s famous. The leather, bench, seat has houndstooth cloth inserts that are legendary in Chevy's muscle cars (another indication of the power this one brings to the streets.) There are some nice upgrades for comfort/convenience like the tilt steering column, an upgraded AM/FM stereo with modern USB input and Bluetooth, and cold-blowing R134a air conditioning. When you slip behind the three-spoke sports steering wheel, you have a full AutoMeter Carbon Fiber Ultra-lite gauge package with large speedo and tach.
The engine bay immediately reminds you again of how fresh and custom this build is with the smooth inner fenders and firewall that funnel your attention to the shining big block in the middle. While the polish makes this ready for the car show, this one was really built for driving. The 454 cubic-inch V8 has a mild cam, Holley four-barrel carburetor, Edelbrock intake, and a large aluminum radiator to help keep it running cool. In fact, speaking of good all-around performance, the V8 is mated to a TH350 three-speed transmission that provides both automatic cruising and a nice stall for performance driving. This feeds a stout 12-bolt locker rear end. Take some extra time with the undercarriage photos. You'll see some terrific upgrades, like the C-notched frame for proper lowering, strong Mark Williams axles, and an awesome four-link rear with adjustable coilovers. It all goes to prove how thoughtful this powerful build is. You even have great anytime driving features, like power steering and power brakes w/discs up front.
Sleek, fresh, and loaded, you'll love showing it and driving it from the moment you leave our showroom. So don't let this upgraded C10 go into someone else's garage. Call now!
