The Chevrolet C10 is quickly becoming one of the more sought-after platforms for Pro Touring and restomod-style classic car builds, and with a relatively inexpensive starting price and abundance of available aftermarket parts, it’s not hard to see why.
This 1967 Chevrolet C10 headed Barrett-Jackson’s Fall 2020 auction serves as the perfect example of just how far one can take a custom C10 truck build. Barrett-Jackson says that “every piece of this truck was custom-fabricated to make this a truly unique one-of-a-kind example,” and it shows. With huge flared fenders, shaved door handles, a rear bumper delete and a faux cowl induction hood, there’s not much of the original C10 body left at all. The truck also has a remote-operated hidden tailgate and the mirrors from a 1966 Chevrolet Chevelle.
Underpinning this highly modified pickup is a custom fabricated chassis with air-ride suspension, front and rear sway bars and rack-and-pinion steering. Power comes from a 408 cubic-inch Chevrolet Big Block, which sends power to the rear wheels through a GM 700R4 four-speed automatic transmission. Inside, the custom treatment continues with black and white leather upholstery and a modern-day JBL audio system.
While this truck has clearly had a lot invested into it, it will be interesting to see if manages to sell for very much when it goes to auction next month. Customized vehicles are built to someone’s own personal vision and when they are highly modified like this, not everyone sees the same value in it that the original builder or owner might. Then again, we’d probably be willing to put down some decent cash for it just to get our hands on that Big Block V8 and custom intake manifold. It’s also being offered with no reserve price, so some lucky Barrett-Jackson bidder just may get a decent deal on it.
