Once upon a time, the Chevy C10 was nary more than an affordable, reliable and somewhat forgettable work truck. These days, though, the pickup’s straightforward design and simple square styling, along with the abundance of aftermarket parts and support, have made the Chevy C10 a favorite among tuners and hot rodders.
Holley LS Fest West is the place to see heavily tuned and modified General Motors products, so it’s no surprise that the Chevy C10 is a rather common sight at the annual custom car show. Holley’s YouTube channel recently filmed a customized Chevy C10 at LS Fest West 2021, which caught its social media team’s eye thanks to its patina paint and modern-day twin-turbocharged LS V8 engine.
Details on this truck are scant, as Holley didn’t grab an interview with the owner for its YouTube channel. It appears as though the truck is powered by a twin-turbocharged LSx V8, though, which is running a Holley EFi system. Other upgrades include rear drag radial tires with alloy drag racing wheels, disc brakes with a Wilwood master cylinder and a NASCAR-inspired interior with a flat bench seat, Sparco Alcantara steering wheel and full digital gauges. This truck also appears to have an automatic transmission, as we can’t spot a manual shifter in the interior shots.
