We’ve seen more and more custom vintage trucks appear online and at custom car events like the SEMA Show in recent years, and with interest in all classic cars now seemingly on the rise, we imagine this is a trend that will continue for the foreseeable future. This green Chevy K10 that was recently completed by Tre5 Customs in Arizona is a great example of a customized vintage truck that would be right at home at an event like the SEMA Show thanks to its head-turning green paint and large chrome alloy wheels.
Tre5 Customs described this Chevy K10 as a ’67-72’ as it features a chassis various body panels from a variety of different Chevy K10 models. The cab is believed to be from a 1970 truck, while the front end is lifted from a 1967 model. It retains the factory GM chassis, but the platform has been upgraded with custom-built leaf springs and Fox Racing shocks. The paint is described as being inspired by the factory OEM mint green color that was once offered on the Chevy K10, but with a modern-looking metallic shine.
Under the hood of this unique Chevy K10 is an LS3 that has been stroked from 6.2 to 6.8 liters (that’s 416 cubic inches) and topped off with a Holley EFI system. Tre5 Customs estimates it makes 600 pound-feet of torque and roughly 570 horsepower. The engine builder knew this truck would be used to tow the owner’s boat, so he purposely tuned the engine to have more torque than power. A 4L80E four-speed automatic transmission sends power to all four wheels and is joined by a twin-stick Atlas transfer case.
