Presented by GAA Classic Cars – A dedicated team of professional builders and customizers transformed this 1967 Chevrolet C10 Fleetside short bed pickup into an award-winning Resto Mod street machine. The half-ton hauler took home the Goodguys 2019 LMC Truck of the Year Late Finalist award at the Southeastern Nationals in Charlotte, North Carolina, and bested 2,800 competitors with a Top 25 Award at Shades of the Past Hot Rod Roundup.
The journey began when the sheet metal was worked to perfection from the smoothed tailgate to the tucked and shaved nickel-plated bumpers. R&R Paint laid down the PPG Switchblade Silver paint, and the hardwood bed features flip-up slats that show off the highly detailed chassis and dual exhaust. Flush-mount glass and billet aluminum tail lamps accent clean C10 style. Speedmaster side-draft velocity stack fuel injection and Holley EFI feeds the Chevrolet LS3 what it needs to push 525 HP through the 4L60E automatic transmission. Concealed wiring and finned valve covers cloak the engine in tradition. Hot Rod Dynamics executed the beautiful sheet metal detailing under the hood. Eddie Black worked the chassis with RideTech StrongArms tube steel double A-arm independent front suspension, a Currie 9-inch rear axle and four-corner RideTech adjustable coil overs for road carving control and down-low stance. Wilwood 6-piston calipers put the clampdown on drilled and slotted rotors for authoritative braking.
Allen Carswell of Pro Interiors and Tops reshaped the cabin into next-level luxury with handcrafted leather upholstery from the sculpted door panels and reworked BMW M5 power-adjustable bucket seats to the plush carpet. Dakota Digital speedometer and tachometer gauges blend factory looks with digital technology together, and the center console door hides PCS pushbutton transmission shift and engine start. Air conditioning and a Pioneer stereo deliver four-season comfort and entertainment. This showstopper waits for its next owner to adjust the tilt steering wheel, push the engine start button and power down the road on staggered 20- and 22-inch Billet Specialties alloy wheels with Toyo redline tires.
This 1967 Chevrolet C10 Resto Mod will be auctioned off at GAA Classic Cars’ November 2021 auction, which runs from the 4th to the 6th. For more information about the event, click here.
