A ton of numbers matching, all-original classic cars are set to go under the gavel at Barrett-Jackson’s upcoming Houston 2019 auction, but this extremely orange 1968 Chevrolet C10 pickup isn’t one of them.
This Chevy C10 pickup has been quite heavily customized with a number of exterior, interior and powertrain upgrades that may or may not be to your tastes.
The auction listing for this truck says it is the result of a “10 year frame-off restoration project,” and features custom work such as shaved hood rails, recessed LED taillights, custom front and rear fascias, American Racing wheels shod in new rubber and of course that Sunset Orange Pearl paint.
Under the hood of this hot rod pickup is a 468 cu. in. V8 (that’s 6.7-liters!) paired with a General Motors Turbo 400 automatic transmission. The origin of this motor isn’t clear, but it’s likely a modified version of Chevy’s venerable 454 Big Block.
Inside, Occupants will be greeted by plenty of orange (surprised?), along with black accents, a billet steering wheel, a new billet gauge cluster and a custom audio system – the exact details of which aren’t available right now.
This truck is listed as a ‘Star’ of the Barrett-Jackson Houston auction and is set to go under the gavel on Saturday, April 6, 2019. It’s not clear how much it will sell for, but with little classic parts, it may end up being a steal.

All sorts of interesting GM vehicles are set to cross the auction block, including a 1970 Pontiac GTO Ram Air II, 1989 Pontiac Turbo Trans Am 20th Anniversary and several amazing examples of highly collectible Chevrolet 454 SS pickup.
