This 1973 Chevrolet C 10 pick up truck came to the V8 speed and Resto Shop for some suspension refinements and more power from an engine and transmission swap. The biggest part of the conversion was performing a CPP rear “C” notch and four link suspension system, which utilizes coil over shocks for better adjustability, more precise suspension control than the stock leaf springs, and a more comfortable lowered ride height. The front suspension was treated to tubular control arms and coil overs, also from CPP. Upgraded brakes and oversized YearOne rally wheels complete the stance.
Power has been upgraded through the use of a Blueprint Engines 435 horsepower 383 stroker Chevrolet V8, which comes complete with a Holley Terminator X fuel injection system, serpentine front drive system, and a 700 R4 4-speed Overdrive transmission. We fabricated a complete custom exhaust system with mandrel bent stainless tube and MagnaFlow mufflers for great flow and sound.
Once installed, detailed, and tuned, our team installed some new gauges from Classic Instruments along with A Vintage Air A/C system to update the C10 interior.
The truck now looks, drives, and sounds 100% better than it did when it came in.
