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.

CPP 4-LINK SUSPENSION
BLUEPRINT ENGINES 383

We enjoyed refreshing this 1979 Chevrolet Bonanza Pickup!  This one is still in it’s original family, and we’re honored to have had the opportunity to give it a repaint and make it look new again. We fixed some rust in the floors, rockers, and cab corners, and resprayed it in it’s original color. Lots of restoration parts form Classic Industries helped make it fresh. New interior items include Dynamat sound deadener, new dash pad, door panels, carpet, and weatherstripping. It’s not a high-profile show truck, but it means the world to our customer, so it means the same to us! Thanks to the owner and to the V8 Speed & Resto Shop crew for returning another classic to the road!
