1980 Chevrolet C10 Pickup
1980 Chevrolet C10 Pickup
It's no secret that Chevrolet builds some of the most celebrated trucks on the planet. From the AK era forward, every generation has found a solid following and, eventually, firm footing in the collector car world. Over the past few years, we've featured plenty of vintage, ground-pounding bowties, and this righteous stepside is just the latest in a series of sweet C/K head turners.
This consignment is the recipient of a full frame-off restoration. During which time many new parts were put on, the body was done over, and the engine replaced…with a monster. If you are a fast truck fan, love deep yellow, fancy air suspension, oversize wheels with low profile tires, and desire to own something where you can turn the key and go showing or racing, this C-10 has your name on its license plate.

Mesmerizing yellow coats every corner of this fleetside truck, and it's a very high quality job. Wonderful attention to detail in the prep work separates the men from the boys, or a quality paint job from MAACO, and this is quality with a capital Q. Chrome front bumper and grille/headlight configuration have been retained, as have the mirrors and shiny chrome rear bumper, but all else has been shaved. A reverse scooped hood has been added for that racer look and thanks to the air ride this truck can attain nearly any stance that your heart desires. Custom billet wheels, 24x8.5 in the front and 26x15 in the rear are wrapped in rubber band thin performance tires for the just right look. The bed has been modified to accommodate the travel of the rear suspension as well as the monster rear tires and we note the near perfect yellow paint and the air tank for the suspension. I personally would be inclined to not put anything in it, it's that nice!
The wonderful customization continues with the nicely padded plastic and leather door panels. Smooth plastic in blue with shiny door releases front these panels with padded blue door pulls with a strip of billet finishing off the bottom. Slipping inside, high back bucket seats courtesy of a 2021 Silverado welcome us and other passengers with a small blue plastic and leather console in the center. These buckets are covered in a blue leather with a nice diamond pleated design sewn into the inserts. The original dash with its blue padded topper holds a bevy of Dakota Digital gauges all within a brushed aluminum panel and the factory black insert with knobs and slides below. A Flaming River polished steering column holds the custom billet exterior wheel matching blue rimmed steering wheel atop. Mounted within the dash we also see an AM/FM/CD stereo for your auditory pleasure. Blue carpeting floods the floors and above is a diamond pleated headliner hanging tightly and proud with integral speakers throughout.
Sitting proudly in the cavernous engine bay is a 6.0 Liter LS V8 that our consignor states was removed from a Z06 Corvette. A 4L60E transmission that is a 4-speed overdrive automatic follows closely behind. A 12 bolt rear axle rounds out the package nicely. A shout out to the twin cone filter style induction system that has been fabbed up for the mighty LS mill.
The term “clean as a whistle” applies here, as with any restoration is done with quality in mind. Air bag rear suspension with a ladder bar arrangement, twin Flowmaster mufflers with dual exhaust that attaches to the snake-like headers and an independent front suspension with airbags are just the beginning. All black steel provides the backbone for this truck and we see Wilwood power disc brakes on all 4 corners. Just clean and well thought out.
Firing this truck up, I was met with a surprising roar, enough so that the bovine population of Morgantown, PA took time from their grazing to investigate my antics. It certainly accelerates smoothly and quickly, stops on a dime and cruises very nicely to boot. All functions were working just perfectly and it's a blast to adjust the air ride suspension while navigating our test track.
A fine overall restoration and customization job and showing near showroom for the exterior and interior along with plenty of custom touches. The new engine is all blinged out, and the power output is simply…well fabulous! I could use my pickup line right now, but I digress, and will just say a classic truck will not get much better in our Hallowed Halls than this baby. Ready to haul anything, even some serious ass!
