1968 Chevrolet C-10 Stepside RestomodThis 1968 Chevrolet C10 Stepside Restomod features big block power, an upgraded interior, and a custom stepside presentation. It all makes for one irresistible package that delivers a performance pickup with a style all its own.
The face of the truck says classic Chevy C10, but it also can't help but showcase its upgraded nature from every angle. The cowl hood will make people look for the big block upgrade underneath. The 22-inch Boss Motorsports alloys fill the wheel wells with a sporty stance, and it also points to the truck upgraded nature. Plus, the fit and finish is so good on this one that the sleek stepside bed of a later Chevy C/K has been added almost seamlessly. So it looks like this modern bed has been there since day one. They even put down classic wood-like trim for a great finishing touch. It's all wrapped in a shade of turquoise that has a vintage style but a modern vividness - so it feels ideal for this restomod presentation.
The exterior green returns inside on the metal parts of the doors and dash, and this combines with a tasteful tan. You'll spot plenty of newer investments, and they all seem to be about making this a comfortable place to spend some time. You have upgraded seating that gives you high-back bucket comfort that includes proper shoulder belts. There's also a fold-down center console, cup holders, and an upgraded AM/FM/XM stereo with USB and HD capability. This has a quality feel in the details, like the taut headliner, smooth dash pad, classic-style door panels, and there's even a full wood-rimmed steering wheel for that ideal comfortable grip.
The engine bay has the smooth look of a thoughtful presentation. So not only do the inner walls match the exterior turquoise, but also more complicated pieces, including the block and ribbed valve covers. At the center of this stylish prevention is a powerful heart with a 454 cubic-inch V8. This big block has been enhanced with a Holley four-barrel carburetor, Edelbrock RPM air gap intake, and full headers feeding the rumbling dual exhaust. So yes, this is one powerful pickup! There are even nice supporting pieces, like steel braided hoses, AN fittings, and an aluminum radiator. There are solid stock-style pieces for a great driver, like power steering, a TH350 three-speed automatic transmission, and a 12-bolt rear end. Plus, you have nice upgrades like newer investments in the trailing arm rear suspension and the grip of modern performance tires.
This is the C10 with a cool custom look and serious big block power. It makes for a total package you need to get your hands on right now.
