The popularity of classic pickups like the Chevrolet C10 is only growing, and new builds are popping up all the time. Now, Fix-a-Flat is offering up this handsome 1970 Chevy C10 restomod in a new contest giveaway.
To help promote the contest, Fix-a-Flat sent professional Formula Drift drivers Chris Forsberg and Dylan Hughes to track down the perfect project vehicle, documenting the experience in a nine-minute, 39-second video. Forsberg and Hughes end up in Southern California’s Manhattan Beach, where they meet Rodger, who’s looking to sell his one-owner ’70 Chevrolet C10.
Overall, the truck looks to be in pretty decent condition. Although there’s some surface rust on the paint, the rest of it looks to be more or less rust free. The tailgate is also bowed-out a bit, possibly from a heavy load placed on it in the past. There’s also some Chevrolet Corvette wheels up front and a slow leak for one of the tires, so they juice it up with some Fix-a-Flat to keep it topped off for the ride home.
Incredibly, this 1970 Chevrolet C10 had been in the seller’s family for nearly 50 years. Now, however, it’s primed to get a new lease on life with a full restoration.
After grabbing lunch, the crew park their new project in the shop, where they list off some of the upgrades they plan on adding. Topping the list is a new drivetrain, with the possibility of adding an LS V8 to the mix, which comes as no surprise for a pair of drift maniacs. Suspension work, body work, paint, and some extra frame strengthening are also on the list.
This particular video looks like the first episode of many that detail the build process. Check it out below to watch the two drivers bring the truck home.
