The second generation of Chevrolet's C/K pickup might just be one of the best trucks ever created. Stylish, timeless and usually armed with plenty of power, these Chevys inspire a cult like following and provide one of the most enjoyable ownership experiences on the planet. This national award-winning C10 is an amazing classic that wraps an air ride suspension and thoroughly massaged aesthetics around a modern 700R4 4-speed and 350 cubic inches of Corvette muscle. Want to park a killer piece of Americana in your garage for roughly HALF the price of a ground-up build? Check out this slick Action Line Chevy!
As far as styling goes, few vehicles have aged better than late '60s and early '70s Chevrolets. In fact, toeing the line between rock-solid and refined, the Action Line C/K is probably one of the most attractive trucks ever penned. Built to dominate the ISCA show circuit, this awesome C10 seals custom Bahama Blue and Galaxy Silver paint under custom Scott Brown airbrushing and multiple layers of wet-sanded clear. That detailed pigment highlights a laser-straight body, which is the direct result a $150K rotisserie restoration completed by Hot Rods by Rohrer's of Burlington Kansas. That clean body's top-notch metalwork is, from the outside of its panels, completely undetectable. And best of all, those panels remain just as GM designed them, with nothing frenched, filled or altered in any major way.
That said; there are some cool details that really make this build pop. The reboot began with a billet grille, which hangs bright halogen headlights above a mirrored bumper and factory parking lamps. Behind that grille, a cowl induction hood leads the eye to smoked, stainless-trimmed glass that's centered between polished wipers, a chrome antenna and a small cargo light. At the sides of that glass, the truck's patriotic profile has been shaved of everything but traditional door handles, sleek mirrors and classy marker lamps. Inside that profile, polished hardware secures an Oak bed, which utilizes 14 coats of finish to reflect a custom stake pocket fuel filler. And at the back of that bed, a stamped tailgate complements trim-free taillights and a second mirrored bumper.
Crack this Chevy's engine compartment and you'll find a glowing powerplant that features a nice mix of polished and triple-plated componentry. The nucleus of that componentry is a 350 cubic inch Corvette block that's been fitted with Street & Performance Tuned Port Injection. When chrome fuel rails sync with a quality Lokar throttle linkage, a mirrored air cleaner sends oxygen in to polished Brodix heads that are capped with polished breathers and polished valve covers. Those heads hide a Comp High Energy cam that breathes through coated Dynaflow headers. Combustion is sparked by a familiar HEI distributor, which sequences fire through thick MSD Super Conductor plug wires. At the front of those wires, a polished Street & Performance serpentine system spins mirrored pulleys, a chrome AC compressor and a polished alternator. And in front of those ancillaries, a polished aluminum radiator hangs a bowtie-branded cap between corrugated hoses, a polished fluid reservoir, a big puller fan and a billet-topped battery. Visually, the hot small block rides in a smooth, color-keyed bay that's complete with smoothed and mirrored fenders. And details like polished fluid lines, polished Eddie Motorsports hinges, an aluminum oil pan and a chrome brake booster create 100% show-ready aesthetics.
With modern power on tap, it should come as no surprise that the bottom of this C10 features a host of noteworthy upgrades. Everything starts with a sturdy, factory-spec chassis that's been thoroughly smoothed and dipped in glossy paint. Behind the glare-inducing engine, a dressed 700R4 4-speed spins power to a chrome-capped, 12-bolt axle that's fitted with a posi-trac differential and big, 3.73 gears. That fully sorted drivetrain rides a trick Air Ride Technologies suspension that's built around sturdy sway bars, lucid power steering and quality Classic Performance Products drop spindles. Stops come courtesy of Wilwood 4 and 6-piston calipers, which squeeze a quartet of drilled and slotted rotors. A custom stainless fuel tank utilizes an internal Holley pump to supply a steady stream of fossils. The aforementioned headers feed coated, 3-inch pipes, which employ polished Magnaflow mufflers. Power meets the pavement through stylish Billet Specialties SLGs, which twist 255/45ZR18 Dunlop SP Sport 9000s in front of 295/40ZR20 Dunlop SP Sport 9000s. And everything, from this Chevy's finned transmission cooler and stainless fluid lines to its painted floor pan and color-keyed fenders, is fresh, expertly finished and ready for show.
Outfitted with a taught combination of charcoal and blue surfacing, this pickup's warm and welcoming interior is every bit as stylish as the rest of its build. The stars of the show are modern Silverado buckets that, in addition to sporting custom suede inserts, feature full power adjustment for the truck's driver. In front of those seats, a painted and airbrushed dash hangs factory telemetry beside Vintage Air climate control and Panasonic touchscreen infotainment, which jolts 4-inch Kicker speakers, a 10-inch Kicker subwoofer and Kicker tweeters through a 1,000-watt amplifier. Beneath that dash, a modern console hides a small Air Ride Technologies control panel and remote for the aforementioned head unit beneath trick billet cupholders. Below that console, clean carpet frames polished door sills, custom floor mats and billet foot pedals. At the sides of that carpet, svelte door panels found petite armrests behind billet handles. And in front of the driver, a bowtie-branded steering wheel laps a tilting Ididit column.
