1972 Chevrolet C10 Restomod
If you're looking to make a big, definitive statement with your custom pickup, check out this 1972 Chevrolet C10. It features a high impact, well-executed exterior, a well-equipped and nicely detailed interior, serious big block power under the hood and it would be a force to be reckoned with on the local car show circuit. With just a tad over 1300 miles logged on its build, it also holds the promise of plenty of fun-filled miles ahead. With its painted bright green flames set against a dark green background, this truck will stand out in any crowd. Not just because of its sheer boldness, though that's certainly there, too, but because of just how much craft the paint scheme shows. Look closely and you can see an unusual amount of detail - it appears the flames are coming from inside the car itself and the 3D effect is really powerful. Up front, a killer-looking billet grille looms above the table-straight front bumper with LED headlights on its sides, and a tastefully-sized scoop sits on the hood. As you take in this classic truck from the side, you can't help but notice the offset of the wheels - it strikes a great balance, providing an aggressive, aftermarket look and displaying the custom wheels perfectly without being excessive. There's plenty of fit and finish to match the craftsmanship on display - the trim throughout looks good, there's clean, clear glass surrounding the cabin and everything from front to back is well-aligned. The interior reflects the same bold, yet well-executed design found outside. The black tweed bench seat reflects the light usage this truck has seen, with no real signs of wear on its surface, and it - along with the door panels, headliner and an absolutely show-stopping custom billet steering wheel - ably echoes the flame motif displayed across the hood and front fenders. When you climb inside to take a hold of that custom steering wheel, with the pistol grip shifter in the other hand, you can't help but feel a sense of power. In front of you sits a very finished looking dash area, with a full complement of AutoMeter gauges in the instrument cluster. There's plenty of comfort to go along with all the dynamics - the air conditioning is in great form to cool you and your passengers and a Kenwood CD player with iPod connectivity offers plenty of audio options. In back, a pair of struts securely holds the bed cover in its raised position, and underneath you can see that the lined bed is looking straight, with no evidence of any major mishaps. All the components are in place to ensure that the bite of this high-impact custom truck matches its aggressive bark. A 6.2-liter GM LS3 sits at the foundation of a very strong drivetrain, sending well in excess of 400 horsepower and 400 lb-ft of torque to the rear wheels via a rock-solid 3-speed automatic TH400 transmission that's efficiently sent to the asphalt by the 3.73 posi-traction rear end. With the shift kit that's been installed, you'll be able to extract every last RPM - so when you step down on the flame-patterned billet throttle pedal, be prepared to be pinned back to your seat. A nicely-sized aluminum radiator sits up front to keep temperatures down in more demanding conditions. 4-wheel Wilwood power disc brakes provide plenty of fade-resistant stopping ability and smooth power steering makes this custom Chevy an easy navigator as it cruises the boulevard on its set of 20" Ridler wheels outfitted with Toyo tires. Go big! This 1972 Chevrolet C10 is a well-executed custom ride that offers plenty of driving excitement to go along with its outstanding curb appeal. Call today!
