There’s only one kind of hauling this stunning 1973 Chevrolet C10 does these days, and it ain’t about feed-n-seed. Nope, you know exactly what this Pro Street style machine and its supercharged dual-quad big block was built to haul. The full custom treatment takes this blue-collar pickup to an entirely new level, and so it’s amazing you can get it all for such an obtainable price.
There’s no way anyone will mistake this stepside Chevy pickup for a contractor’s ride. There’s a huge air grabber popping out of the hood, billet grille, sport mirrors, aerodynamic tonneau cover, frenched taillights, big dual exhaust tips, and even more flare added to those curvy rear fenders to help contain the massive rear rubber. All of this (and more) combines for one aggressive pickup. It’s all wrapped in a sleek and dark black. But the real showstopper is the full flame package that consumes the hood and burns down the sides. It’s done with the expensive chameleon paint that shifts the hue of its metallic glow depending on the light. It’s such a cool look that the paint alone won awards in 2018, and there has been good care since then to make sure it remains stylish. It makes for a package that’s equal parts aggressive and elegant.
The interior also gets the custom treatment. It starts with the button-top soft velour seat that is pure lowrider cool. And there’s a custom headliner to match. Plus, the carpeting, lower doors, and dash pad all coordinate for a thoughtful look. We love this generation of Chevy trucks for having a dash that wraps around the driver like a sports car, and that just seems right in an upgraded truck like this. After all, it feels like a true performance machine with the Grant sports steering wheel, added temp and boost gauges, and the large tach integrated into the factory readouts.
The smooth and dark inner walls of the engine bay do a great job of directing your attention to the full power package in the middle. The big air grabber may have been what first attracted you to this powerhouse, but your eyes will then be transfixed on the big power of dual four-barrel carburetors sitting on top of a roots-style 671 blower. And beneath this is a 454 cubic-inch big block that’s said to be bored .30 over to 461ci total. Oh yeah, this is an awesome powerhouse. That’s why it’s also supported by the right pieces, like a classic Cragar intake, Mallory fuel pump, ribbed aluminum valve covers, steel braided lines with AN fittings, and a full MSD ignition system. The TH400 three-speed automatic transmission is a stout unit that was built right, including a mild stall. This feeds a shortened 12-bolt rear end. The suspension has also been upgraded with better front springs and traction arms in the rear. And while it has a full blacktop burner look and power, there’s also a tamer side to this. Power steering, power brakes, front discs, and highway-friendly rear gears give this some added general appeal.
This Chevy has an awesome custom style and a seriously powerful heart. So be the envy of every muscle car out there with an affordable and stout muscle truck.
