1971 Chevrolet C10 is a Flawless Restomod
If you like classic trucks, it is impossible not to love this 1971 Chevy C10.
While scrolling through the for-sale listings on ClassicCars.com, we stumbled across this absolutely flawless 1971 Chevrolet C10 stepside pickup. It received the full restomod treatment complete with a 350-horsepower crate motor almost a decade ago, but it looks like it came out of the paint booth last week – and you could buy it today.
The exterior of this 1971 Chevrolet C10 look spotless in every picture, with a custom grille and a custom shorty antenna, but the rest of the body has been restored to original. The mirrors, the bumpers and all of the body panels match the factory C10, but to give this ’71 Chevy a custom stance, the truck has been lowered and fitted with a set of modern 20-inch chrome wheels wrapped in low-profile rubber.
The sale listing points out that this Chevy C10 was restored nine years ago, but as the pictures show, there is no sign of age on the paint or the chrome.
On the inside, the gauges are original, but an aftermarket tachometer has been mounted under the dash and the old Chevy has been fitted with a modern CD-equipped radio head unit. Also, a modern set of bucket seats wrapped in black leather have replaced the factory bench seat and between the seats is the only problem we see with the truck – that awful fake wood grain console cover. It matches the steering wheel, but it just doesn’t fit with the rest of this truck, but other than that one very minor detail, this truck is perfect inside and out.
