1237 Central Park Drive, OFallon , IL 62269
For sale in our Indianapolis showroom is one of the best classic C10 pickups we've ever seen. We have available a 1968 Chevrolet C10 custom truck with show quality attention to detail. Let's start at the birth of this show truck. In December of 1967 in Stockton, CA the truck was born. Soon after it was sold new as a 1968 Chevrolet Long bed C10 CST equipped with a 327 V8 engine, powerglide transmission, factory ac, power steering and power brakes along with factory bucket seats and console. Jumping 36 years forward, the lovely C10 was found in Concord, CA with its original black plates. The truck was then purchased and taken back to Ohio to be reborn. What happened was a detailed restoration and customization that is fully documented. Now underneath the hood you will find a 383 stroker engine with a 4-bolt main. The very powerful engine wasn't just thrown together. Here is a list of just a few of the details: Eagle cast crankshaft, forged connecting rods, TRW forged lightweight pistons, 10.75:1 compression, Comp Cams roller hydraulic camshaft, Comp Cams chrome moly full roller rockers and pushrods, Fuel injection using a GM ECM, and a B&M oil super cooler. Backing the engine is a GM TH700R-4 automatic transmission. The transmission shifts smoothly and boasts a B&M trans super cooler plumbed with stainless steel lines. Now is a good time to note that the build has just 8600 miles since its completion. Mind you, the bottom side of this custom truck is just as clean as the top. The exterior is coated in an Inferno Red after being chemically stripped by American Metal Cleaners then E-coated by Mayflower Vehicle Systems. (the same process as the 2004-06 Ford GT for $200k) Once the E-coating was oven cured, all the seams were seam sealed and re-baked. You most likely will not find a cleaner C10. As far as the Chassis goes, much modifications have been performed to the original chassis: narrowed control arms, Air Ride Technologies air bags installed, C notch kit installed in rear frame, and McGauffeys 2-inch drop spindles and more. Getting to the interior, this C10 boats its original bucket seats and console recovered, fuel tank removed and relocated under bed, Dynamat Extreme Insulation applied to every surface (even inside of doors), and electric power windows added using the original window crank handles! Simply put, this is a truck ready for a drive to anywhere or any show. You must see the 100+ HD pictures and video at www.gatewayclassiccars.com or our Indy showroom. For more information call 317-688-1100. Save years of labor and come see this amazing C10.
