1973 Chevrolet C10 Pickup Driveline and Suspension Upgrades at the V8 Speed and Resto Shop

This Daytona Yellow 1973 Chevrolet C10 pickup truck came to the V8 Speed and Resto Shop looking for some upgrades in the power and reliability departments. The first step was to pull the gutless 350 and swap in a 383 stroker Chevy from Blueprint Engine Supply. It runs with a Holley Terminator EFI system, and now spins a 700R4 automatic overdrive transmission for better highway cruising. The stance, ride, and handling are now all improved now that the V8 Speed team notched the frame and installed a CPP 4-link suspension system with coil-over shocks all around. Inside, Classic Instruments keep the driver informed, and Vintage Air keeps the riders cool. 17″ billet Chevy Rally wheels add timeless style. How can we help with your C10?
