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.
