Back in high school, Dave Castle had a custom Chevy S10 that he put on air bags, just like so many other enthusiasts before him. Fast forward to today, and Castle wanted to step up his game, but felt as though he didn’t have the time, patience, or money to go all-out on a custom build. Luckily, he got the chance to purchase this completely tricked-out 1967 Chevy C10, as featured in this new video from AutotopiaLA.
This particular Chevy C10 is known as Compadre, and it’s a former SEMA build pieced together by the experts at Tre 5 Customs, in Arizona.
Unsurprisingly, every detail on this Chevy C10 is eye-popping, with an ultra-clean aesthetic from front to back, and even underneath the skin. The body gets a two-tone paint job, with white matched to a copper top. The corners are filled with 22-inch copper-colored wheels with a deep-dish design and polished lip, while a polished chrome bumper sits below a matching copper Bow Tie badge. Underneath the rollers are a set of Baer brakes, with polished calipers with drilled and slotted rotors.
A set of side exhaust pipes are mounted just ahead of the rear wheels, once again with a polished surround. Spitting the good noises is a 5.7L V8 LS1 engine, which comes with headers, exhaust, and a custom tune, all of which combine to make for about 350 horsepower at the wheels. This Chevy C10 also gets a 4L60 transmission to handle the cog swaps.
Looking over the engine bay, we see the LS1 sitting pretty with matching white paint and oodles of polished metal as well.
The whole shebang rides on a set of Slam SS7 airbags, while the Choppin Block chassis sports additional copper-colored suspension components, chassis components, and driveline components.
The interior is icing on the cake, with custom leather and tweed upholstery that matches the rest of the colors and design cues. Even the steering wheel resembles the 22-inch wheels outside.
All told, this Chevy C10 build looks amazing, and Castle couldn’t be prouder to call it his own.
