This vintage truck sports one fine looking engine compartment, at the center of which sits a 454 cubic inch V8, surrounded by well-detailed blue inner fenders and firewall and dressed up with a chrome air cleaner and a pair of chrome valve covers. In back, the wooden bed is surrounded by a clean liftgate and inner fenders and sits nice and flush. Its killer exterior shade will draw attention wherever it roams and the rumbling big block power standing by under its hood makes for a great time behind the wheel. When viewed from the side, the short bed in back adds a stout, beefy look and upon closer inspection, you'll see that the exterior alignment on this Chevy is in good order - the bed area lines up nicely with the cabin and consistent gaps surround its doors and hood. There's a nice, comfortable interior waiting inside the doors that combines all of the C10s original vintage charm with a couple of nice add-ons to up the driving experience offered.
Sharp 454 badging on the front fenders proclaims the sizable displacement lurking beneath the hood. The bright, distinctive shade of blue on display here is an absolute winner - it equips this classic with tons of visual energy and accentuates all the curvature and rugged appearance that made the C10 stepsides of this era so appealing in the first place. The big block has been equipped with a Holley 4-barrel carb and an Edelbrock Performer 2. . The stance is yet another high point - it's lowered but not so far as to create clearance issues, and just the right amount of incline adds an air of customization without going overboard. It could use a refinishing to bring out its best, but that's a fairly simple undertaking. Despite its considerable years of service, the underside of this Chevy appears very solid and well positioned to serve dependably for many more miles to come.
Just below, an aftermarket air conditioning system has been added and it's running in top form - blowing strong out of the underdash vents, it cools things off in no time at all. . . . . .
