The Chevy C10 is one of the more popular old-school pickup trucks out there when it comes to customization, and now we’re checking out this example from 1977 riding millimeters off the pavement on a Spec chassis from The Roadster Shop.
Clocking in at just 2 minutes, 22 seconds, the video is brief, showing the Chevy C10 as it prowls around in the country. According to the video description, this particular vehicle is nicknamed Old Blue, and previously served as the daily driver for Roadster Shop owner Phil Gerber.
The truck was eventually sold to a new owner in Texas, who enjoyed the Chevy C10 extensively, racking up the miles over several years. Fast forward to a few weeks ago, and Old Blue was offered back to The Roadster Shop, resulting in the video featured below.
Back together with his ’77 Chevy C10, we see Gerber climb aboard and get the truck started, raising the suspension to an appropriate height for cruising. After rolling through some country two-lane backroads, Phil finds the right spot to let it rip, giving us a sweet little slo-mo burnout.
The Roadster Shop Spec chassis underneath the squarebody styling allows this Chevy C10 to be slammed to the pavement over the upgraded air suspension setup. This thing gets very low indeed, but looks like it’s more than comfortable rumbling around on the street in one of the taller ride height settings as well.
The exterior of this 1977 Chevy C10 is classic patina, with some rusty rough spots adding serious character to the look. The interior is also quite old school, with hinge-style door handles and hand-operated window cranks – an interesting combination with the modern push-button operation of the air suspension.
Seeing this thing out on the road, it certainly looks like a lot of fun, and it makes a pretty good noise as well. Check it out for yourself right here:
