1970 Chevrolet C-10 C10Note I previously had this truck listed with a FiTech injected 454 with 25 miles on fresh build. This engine developed a low end knock on her maiden voyage and was promptly removed and replaced with a fresh 0 mile 396 from a 68 Chevelle that has been bored to a 408. This engine has fully forged internals Speed pro Pistons, pro comp connecting rods, forged crank and eldelbrock performer top end, lunati 570 lift cam, FiTech fuel injection, eldelbrock air gap intake headers and flow master exhaust. This engine made 537hp on the engine dyno with a 750cfm holly. The fiTech injection gives this beast instant throttle response and makes this truck hell on wheels. A TCI 2800RPM stall was added to a built th400 with shift kit to handle the extra power. Also the fender emblems were changed accordingly.
I have for sale one of the hottest trucks on the market in the absolute best color combination that can be had. A frame off restoration of this truck was recently completed and every part on this truck is new or refurbished to like new standards.
I purchased this truck from the family of the original owner in fairly decent shape needing only minor repair of the rockers. It was a clean mostly rust free base that allowed us to build the beauty that you see here. This truck was taken down to the frame everything was cleaned what needed to be repaired or upgraded was done and freshly painted.
The chassis was stripped the front of the truck was completely rebuilt and we added a full 5 lug conversion, 2.5" CPP drop spindles 4 wheel power disc brakes with drilled and slotted rotors and a beltech sport suspension 5/6 drop. The truck is perfectly aligned and tracks straight. The truck originally was equipped with a 350ci v8 that was tired so we decided to upgrade it to a fresh built fiTech fuel injected 396/408 using CPP big block motor mounts so that it sits in the truck correctly. Behind the motor is a brand new th400 TCI 2800RPM stall and 3.73 gears. This engine is a beast with 10.5 to 1 compression it runs on pump gas and is a monster (she will pull as long as you have the nerve to hold down the skinny peddle on the right). With the focus being "fuel efficiency" and reliability with the look and sound that you can only find in a true big block.
The interior of the truck has been completely redone and finished in a beautiful mix of black and white houndstooth. There is nothing inside of the truck that was not replaced it has a new fuel tank, all carpeting, seat cover and foam, dash pad, steering wheel, heater controls, dash bezel window rubbers etc. We decided to leave the interior as stock appearing rather than go full custom because in my opinion a full custom interior never quite looks like it should and I think that it hurts the collectibility and value in the long run.
The exterior of the truck is finished in a gorgeous tuxedo black and GM bright white. We have over 60 hours worth of priming and blocking in this truck to get the black paint to lay beautifully. And I am currently having the truck wet Danes and buffed to get out all imperfections for a true show car shine that you can read the paper from this will be done by the end of this auction and will only enhance the beauty of this amazing truck. All of the chrome/aluminum on this truck is brand new (bumpers, grill, side mounding, emblems etc.) and never seen any type of weather. All lenses are new and without flaw. The wheels and tires are also brand new and only have test/tune miles on them approx 25 and are 20x8 up front and 20x9.5 on the rear with Hankook EVO v2 tires.
If you are looking for a mega clean fun, reliable show stopping c10 but don't want to go through the time, headache and $$$$$ of trying to build it. This truck is for you it needs nothing, but a new owner. It is ready to dominate your local cruise ins, car shows and c10 scene, and will make a great addition to any collection.
