Last week, we shared a walkaround video of a lifted Chevy K10 that was recently put together by Arizona-based shop Tre5 Customs. Now the guys over at Tre5 Customs are back with yet another walkaround video, but instead of a lifted K10, this latest video showcases a slammed 1965 Chevy C10 lowrider.
This head-turning light blue Chevy C10 was recently pulled out of a collection in Florida and delivered to Tre5 Custom’s shop to be transformed into a restomod with modern-day technology and performance. It rides on an aftermarket GSI Machine and Fabrication chassis and features Accuair air suspension management that can be easily adjusted via a switch panel on the dashboard.
Under the hood of this bright blue Chevy C10 is a naturally aspirated 6.2L LS3 V8 built by Don Hardy Race Cars, which sends power to the rear wheels through a GM 6L80 six-speed automatic transmission, a Currie limited-slip differential with 3.70 rear gears and a pair of beefed-up Currie axles. This built LS is estimated to produce over 5050 horsepower at the crank. Some other performance highlights include Ridetech shocks, Baer brakes and an ABS Power Brake aftermarket brake booster.
Inside, this truck retains its vintage look whilst also integrating some modern-day amenities. While the OEM painted steel dashboard remains, Tre 5 Customs installed retro-look Dakota Digital gauges, a RetroSound radio with Bluetooth, bolstered TMI sport seats, a Lokar shifter with an automated manual shifting mode, a custom center console with cupholders and a billet steering wheel. A pair of modern-day 6×9 speakers sit in custom housings in each of the doors and are joined by a pair of Kicker subwoofers mounted behind the seats.
Tre5 Customs can explain this recently completed Chevy C10 build a bit better than we can, so check out the video embedded below for a complete walkaround tour of this no-expenses-spared project.
