The pickup truck, a staple of the American landscape. The work horse, a people hauler, a supply mover. A truck does all of these things, and quite well. Sometimes, though, cars do things a little better. Especially performance sedans. So what happens when you swap the heart from a first generation CTS-V into a 1968 GMC C10? Here lay the answer, fortunately for you.
Feast your eyes on this 1968 GMC C10 running with LS6 V8 pulled from a first-generation Cadillac CTS-V, pushing a plentiful 486 hp. The seller has put thousands of man hours into this custom, one-off show truck and it’s definitely apparent by the near endless list of modifications done. Mods include: QA1 Coilover shocks on all corners, DANA 44 rear end with 410 posi and 4-link, 6 speed Tremec manual transmission and much, much more. The truck is a very well done balance of custom and originality, sporting time period correct air conditioning and heat. On the outside, over 70 modifications have been done to give the truck a distinct presence on the road.
The truck’s maximum bid was $30,000 on eBay, far below the $70,000 reserve. So look for this little monster to surface again in the future.
