The Chevy C10 pickup is a certified classic, with straight, simple, and boxy lines, plus a vast ocean of aftermarket customization options. It’s not uncommon to see these pickups slammed to the ground, and now, The Roadster Shop is giving us exactly that with a perfect patina laid on top.
For those who may be unaware, The Roadster Shop offers a variety of chassis and suspension upgrades for the most popular muscle machines and street rods, including the Chevy C10 pickup. Now, the customizers are showing off this particular example from 1969, fully built and bagged under some nicely oxidized body panels.
Hosted by Phil Gerber, co-owner of The Roadster Shop, the video is a little over 12 minutes long, and goes over all the goodies that make this Chevy C10 build what it is.
Originally found in Arizona and purchased as a personal project, Gerber ended up selling this ride to a customer who had the same vision for what it could become. Under the skin, this 1969 Chevy C10 rides on a Roadster Shop “Slammed” SPEC chassis, with airbag suspension onboard to adjust the ride height on the fly. Outside, the pickup rides on 20-inch Forgeline OE1 wheels with original 1969 hubcaps, under which sits a set of 14-inch Baer brakes in front and 12-inch Baer brakes in back.
As for the engine-spec, this 1969 Chevy C10 is running a GM Performance LS3 V8. The V8 was also fitted with a variety of parts from Holley, LS Classic, and Billet Specialties to make sure the classic under-hood look was kept intact. Routing output is a 4L60 transmission and 3.90 posi rear end.
Finally, the interior is dripping custom touches courtesy of Avant Garde Design, and includes a combination of both modern amenities and vintage fabrics.
Stuffing all that good stuff under the factory body, complete with the patina, this build ticks all the right boxes for an old-school street truck. Check it out in-depth with the video below:
