1968 Chevrolet C-10

To build trucks that grab your attention and hold it, ou need to have vision. There's more to building great customs than just opening a catalog and installing shiny stuff, ou need a theme. Looking at this 1968 Chevy C-20 pickup, t's clear that the builder had both the vision and the talent to bring it to life, iving it a unique look that's both timeless and extremely appealing.This is a big truck, he heavier-duty C-20 instead of the usual C-10, ut the beautiful steely blue paint masks its size and gives it a very sleek, odern look. And despite being a big hauler, t sure doesn't look like it was ever used for that, ut rather a clean southern truck that's led a pretty good life in the sun. It has an 8-foot bed which is far more practical than the short bed and given the size of the truck, t makes for great proportions that suit it just fine. There's a good deal of cash wrapped up in the bodywork, hich is straight and clean, ith good panel alignment that shows in the way the rocker panel forms an unbroken line between the wheels. The paint is from a modern color palette but on the squared-off old Chevy it looks fantastic with a deep shine and great surfaces. It's not perfect since the build is a few years old, ut with some care it will look this good 10 years from now and will still have an appealing look. THAT's what having vision is all about. No major deviations from stock and still wearing bright chrome bumpers, ith a tonneau cover out back that makes it quite practical as well. The handsome gray plaid interior is more evidence that the guy who built this truck knew what he wanted long before he started putting it together. It's sophisticated and a little bit playful, ut like the exterior, t's also grown-up and will look fashionable practically forever. A wood-rimmed steering wheel certainly helps with the atmosphere inside and these trucks had some of the most handsome instrument panels of the period. Auxiliary gauges were added under the dash and with their round faces, hey almost look like they've been there from the start. There's no sign of an original radio, ut a modern AM/FM/CD head unit has been neatly installed in the dash where it's out of sight, owering 6x9 speakers installed in the doors. Everything is in good condition and nicely preserved since the build was completed a few years ago, ncluding the rubberized floor coatings.The engine bay has also been modernized and tastefully decorated to match the overall theme of clean yet modern. With 350 cubic inches, he engine moves the pickup with ease and looks great wearing gray Chevrolet valve covers and a matching air cleaner. Lots of new components, ncluding the wiring harness, rake system, delbrock 4-barrel carburetor, nd long-tube headers ensure that it is reliable as well as powerful, nd it has a fantastic V8 bark from the dual exhaust. A big front sway bar gives the big truck surprisingly nimble handling, nd with a TH400 3-speed automatic transmission heavy-duty rear end it's still ready to work, oo. Big 20-inch Jax alloy wheels fit well and carry 285/50/20 Cooper radials that fill the truck's wheel wells perfectly.Nicely built and clearly a product of someone with a plan, his handsome C-20 drives as great as it looks, hich is really saying something.
