Chevrolet Performance released a new video on its YouTube channel this week that provides an in-depth overview of one of the custom builds that it put together to promote its Connect and Cruise crate engine packages.
The custom build in question is based on a 1967 Chevy C10 pickup and features a 350 cubic inch ZZ6 V8 engine from Chevrolet Performance. This version of the ZZ6 is the Electronic Fuel Injection model, which swaps the Holley carburetor setup on the standard ZZ6 crate engine for a fuel-injection throttle body. The aluminum intake manifold also has the look of a traditional carbureted intake and air filter, providing the perfect blend of vintage looks and modern day performance.
The ZZ6 V8 crate engine with EFI is rated at 420 horsepower at 5,800 RPM and 408 pound-feet of torque at 4,500 RPM. In this 1967 C10, the engine is paired with an electronically controlled 4L65-E four-speed automatic transmission, which sends power to the rear wheels.
This truck, which was originally built to celebrate Chevy’s 100th anniversary back in 2017, has a lot more to enjoy apart from its Connect and Cruise crate powertrain. The interior has been completely refinished and now features Porcelain White leather and trim, a billet Chevrolet steering wheel, new electronic gauges and added seat bolsters. It also features lowered suspension, 20 inch wheels, sticky Pirelli rubber and modern-day disc brakes at all four corners.
Bill Martens, associate marketing manager for Chevrolet Performance, says this unique 1967 C10 was envisioned as a resto mod type truck and is the type of vehicle “that any enthusiast would be proud to have.” Check out the brief overview video embedded below to learn a little bit more about this build.
