1972 Chevy C 10 Resto MOD, SHOW Quality, 350 F.i., 4l60e, 9″ Ford,
1972 Chevrolet C-10 Resto Mod Pickup
Immaculate, frame-off, rotisserie built 1972 Chevrolet C-10 short bed Resto Mod Pickup. No expense was spared, and it shows throughout the entire vehicle. Completed in 2015 and was driven across the USA for its initial ‘shake down’ cruise. Absolutely no issues…..total of 15,000 miles have been logged since completion.
The ‘Hugger’ orange 2-stage urethane paint is just about flawless having no chips, cracks, bubbles, or scratches anywhere. There are many subtle modifications that the ‘eye’ will miss. For example….the gas cap which is located behind the left side marker light or the pinstriping which hi-lights the letter’s on the tail gate or even the filled and smoothed door sill plate area. There is no ‘Bondo’ anywhere in the truck. Panels were formed and welded in place.
Power comes from a new crate motor Ram Jet F.I. 350 Chevy rated at 300 h.p. and 400 ft/lb of torque. Transmission is an electronically controlled and blueprinted 4L60E 4-speed automatic. Differential is a 9” Ford unit with 3.50:1 open gears.
The interior has new upholstery with heated seats. New carpeting, Classic gauges, tilt wheel, cruise control, power steering, 4-wheel power boosted disc brakes, Vintage air A/C & heat, AM/FM/USB Retro radio with a pioneer 5-disc CD changer mounted under the seat.
Below are listed the specifications. I am sure there are some details I may have missed so feel free to ask me.
The owner has a 4” thick notebook with every receipt and diagram for each part in/on the truck. Also a computer for tuning the Ramjet 350 is included….$350 value.
