Introduced as a more approachable follow-up to GM's legendary Task Force pickups, the Chevrolet C/K has become a beloved automotive icon that's won enthusiasts, spawned a giant aftermarket and even inspired festivals! In fact, early C10s are so popular that they're ever-present in every corner of the classic car hobby, from customs and pro-touring resto-mods to mini truckin' and street legal stock cars. More traditional than transformative, this razor-sharp Chevy backs 383 cubic inches of all-American power with vibrantly vivacious aesthetics. And if you like your classic to be head-turning AND fun to drive, it's a great candidate for your next cruiser!
BOWTIES AND COCKTAILS
The beneficiary of a detailed, ground-up restoration that was fully sorted roughly 1,000 miles ago, this super cool Chevy walks a fine line between sport and shine. That shine comes courtesy of vibrant Cocktail Orange Metallic two-stage that was borrowed directly from Kia's popular Soul palette. And that pigment, extended throughout both the pickup's cab and engine bay, reflects a series of tight gaps and flat surfaces that suggest quality certainly took precedence over time.
At the front of that flash, a custom grille centers bright LED parking lamps between a shaved hood, traditional headlights and a fresh chrome bumper that's complete with tasteful fog lamps. That hood, a steel Cowl Induction unit, fronts a crisp greenhouse, which hangs one-piece side glass behind matte wipers and diminutive mirrors. A smooth profile sails polished C10 handles at the sides of an Oak bed that's finished with polished skid strips, massive wheel tubs and a polished fuel cap. And at the back of the truck, a second fresh bumper traces a trio of LED taillights under a smoothed tailgate.
BIG CHEVY POWER
Pop the hood and you'll find 383 cubic inches of stout Chevrolet small block that, according to this classic's current owner, easily kicks out somewhere between 400 and 430 horsepower! A perfect combination of oxygen and fuel comes courtesy of a coated Holley Street Avenger, which is sequenced to polished lines, a polished Holley regulator and a liquid-filled Speedmaster pressure gauge. That electronically choked carb floats between a stylish black air cleaner and a proven Edelbrock Performer RPM intake. At the back of that plane, a hot Accel distributor sequences spark through loomed Accel Hi-Temp Super Stock Spiral Core Wires. Trick bowtie fasteners center stylish valve covers on tough iron heads, which feed coated long-tube headers. In front of those tubes, billet serpentine components spin a polished alternator opposite a polished AC compressor. A big aluminum radiator is paired with a polished expansion tank and two electric puller fans. That roster of proven components is seated in a smoothed engine bay that's decked in sweet Cocktail Orange Metallic skin. And that striking pigment is dotted with choice details like bright sleeving, a polished brake booster, bright dipsticks and a seven quart oil pan.
LOOKS GREAT, DRIVES GREAT
Behind that raucous small block, a tough 700R4 4-speed makes excellent use of a 2,800 RPM Monster Lockup Torque Converter. That torque flows through a familiar Ford 9-inch, which spins a posi-traction differential under requisite mini tubs. Everything rolls low and mean on a powder-coated factory frame that's guided by factory-style power steering. An aftermarket 4-bar hangs modern coil-over-shocks behind a factory front-clip. Quick stops come courtesy of power-assisted Wilwood calipers, which milk a full suite of stainless lines to squeeze a quartet of vented rotors. The aforementioned headers feed aluminized pipes, which growl through an X-shaped crossover and heat-wrapped mufflers. Power meets the pavement through timeless Centerline Convo Pro 2.0s, which spin 255/60R15 Yokohamas in front of 29x15.50-15 Mickey Thompson Sportsman Pros. And on-point detailing includes an electric fuel pump, a floor-mount battery and a relocated, 12-gallon fuel tank.
Swivel the doors and you'll reveal a tastefully customized cockpit that's classy in all the right ways! Tight tan leather dresses modern, power-operated buckets that are secured by modern lap belts. A bowtie-branded dash hangs a slim pad above controls for modern air conditioning, modern Pioneer audio and modern Dakota Digital VHX telemetry. Rich carpet frames fancied up foot pedals between Cheyenne-style door panels and a custom console that's finished with lighted cupholders and a B&M Ratchet Shifter. The driver spins a sweet, wood-rimmed steering wheel around a tilting Ididit column. And everything stays isolated thanks to quality floor insulation.
It's no wonder the C10 continues to be one of the market's most popular options for stylish, all-American transportation! With sweet aesthetics, epic swagger and muscle car streetability, this Chevy is the perfect combination of form and function. Call your friends at http://www.RKMotors.com for more information!
