In 1960 Chevrolet introduced its C/K truck platform, setting the stage for the second generation and what some believe to be some of the best-looking Chevy trucks ever made.
Still for some, these classic trucks left something to be desired. Maybe not for the time but as technology progressed the capabilities and style of trucks into the modern era the Chevy C10 certainly did become a bit dated. It is this train of thought that has led to what has become referred to as restomodding. While this terminology can refer to something as simple as installing a modern Bluetooth stereo into an old restored vehicle, the previous owner of this 1968 Chevrolet C10 really took the portmanteau and ran with it.
From a distance, the classic truck may simply look like a well-restored classic C10 that has been de-badged, murdered, and equipped with a nice set of custom wheels. Upon closer inspection, however, the craftsmanship that went into the restoration of this truck really starts to shine. The exterior is upgraded with a custom-made forward-tilting front clip, suicide doors, a molded tailgate, an Atkins custom wood bed, and custom Cadillac taillights. Under the hood is a 350-cid Crate engine mated to an automatic transmission. Inside is a continuation of the artistry. A black leather upholstery adorns a split bench seat and a Grant GT steering wheel frames a black dash accented with the perfect amount of polished trim. Modern amenities include air conditioning, power windows and locks, and a custom Bluetooth stereo.
This 1968 custom Chevy C10 is now scheduled for Classic Car Auction Group’s upcoming Sioux Falls Classic Car Auction with just 3k-miles showing since the frame-off restoration. For more information on this truck click here or to register to place your bid click here.
