1970 Chevrolet C-10 is a modified vehicle with updates to the exterior. The owner
has had it for 1 year. The vehicle runs great.
Awesome Custom C40 truck
The original truck was an old farm truck with longer stake bed. It was modified by
shortening the frame and fabricating a C10 bed with extended metal fender flares from
another truck to cover the dually axles. The rear fender flares were cut from another
C40 and welded into an 8 foot C10 bed. The right front fender was welded to the left
rear and vice versa. The running boards from the other truck were also utilized to extend
the side running boards. Two trucks and tons of labor hours were necessary to build
this very unique truck. The truck’s restoration was completed in 2021 including a new
paint job in GM copper of the era, and Ford Wimbledon White for a nice two tone
appearance. Brand new side moldings were installed after the paintwork.
This is an all original drivetrain including the original straight six, 292ci with a 4-speed
transmission. This truck starts with ease and runs like an antique Singer sewing
machine. The driveline only has been driven 65k miles in its life. The engine bay is
completely restored and looks great, with attention to detail.
A custom wood bed was completed in 2022 using the same copper paint that is on the
truck to stain the wood. Custom aluminum strips were placed between the boards. The
wood bed is actually removable and reveals a color matched bed liner.
The interior was painted at the same time as the truck, and all new flooring and seat
cover was put on the original seat. The interior looks like new.
The only thing I know the truck needs is the horn doesn’t work and it will need new tires
Be the only one at the car shows with this unique vehicle. It’s an absolute attention
getter. There are very few of these trucks made by people, maybe 20 in the country.
