Chevrolet Cheyenne Super 10

Ice-cool 1974 Chevrolet Cheyenne Super 10, known as ‘Syndicate Series 1’, has the awards to back up its looks.

If you’re going to give your custom truck a name then it had better be something special. In this case, Squarebody Syndicate has definitely built something worthy. Their custom one-off 1974 Chevrolet Cheyenne Super 10 took home General Motors 2015 Peoples Choice SEMA Design Award as well as landing in the Top 5 Chevys of SEMA list the same year.

We love a custom Chevy truck that respects its roots, and this slick road hugging C10 does just that. The wheels are a stylish design by Mike Curtis for Delmo’s Speed Shop, however, the Catalina Blue and Frost White are actually the trucks original colors. Syndicate Series 1 also has a crate LS3 decked out to look like a stock 350. On top of that, smaller items such as the custom aluminum air cleaner and steering wheel have been designed to look like they could be from the Chevrolet factory in 1974.

Also in line with respecting the roots of the Chevy C10, the full leather interior features OEM seat inserts. However, a Porterbuilt chassis sitting on Accuair E-Level suspension lurks under the bodywork to help bring the ride and performance up to date as a modern badass street truck.

We noticed this truck is up for sale on Classic Cars, but the good news is that Syndicate Series 2 is already in the works. Squarebody Syndicate has acquired a rare 1975 GMC Indy promo truck to bring back to life after being left sitting for over 25 years. They promise to rebuild it as a tribute truck using their own modern take. We can’t wait to see it, and given the owner Joe Yezzi’s obsession with Chevrolet and GMC square body trucks, we’re excited to see this company continue to grow.

Ian's obsession with cars started young and has left him stranded miles off-road in Land Rovers, being lost far from home in hot hatches, going sideways in rallycross cars, being propelled forward in supercars and, more sensibly, standing in fields staring at classic cars. His first job was as a mechanic, then he trained as a driving instructor before going into media production.

The automotive itch never left though, and he realized writing about cars is his true calling. However, that doesn’t stop Wright from also hosting the Both Hand Drive podcast.
