Modern Chevy Cheyenne Super 10 Is Pure Retro Perfection

Cheyenne Super 10

Take it all the way back to the ’70s with this amazing combination of old and new!

Retro styling in the automotive world is nothing new. In fact, the trend of incorporating old into new has raged on for decades. But rarely do you see it taken to this kind of extreme. Because a Chevy dealership over in Wells, Minnesota has turned a modern Silverado into the perfect recreation of one of our favorite square bodies of all time – the Cheyenne Super 10.

Considering how far truck styling has come since the Cheyenne was introduced in 1971, you’d think that any attempt to apply it to a new Silverado might turn out to be an unmitigated mess. But you’d be wrong. Because as you can see, the fine folks at Blake Greenfield Chevrolet Buick pulled it off better than we could have ever imagined. And this 2014 Chevy Silverado looks absolutely amazing.

The two-tone paint job asserts itself well to the modern lines of the Silverado, and the green/white combo is a perfect ’70s throwback. But what really amazes us is how well the old school white steel wagon wheels work here. Granted, they’re a little larger than the original 15-inchers, but still. And of course, white-lettered BF Goodrich tires complete the effect. Top it all off with some gold pinstriping and Cheyenne Super 10 badging, and you’ve got the perfect retro pickup.

The idea for such a build came from the owner himself, Blake Greenfield. As soon as he laid eyes upon the trade-in green Silverado, his vision couldn’t be denied. And after quickly selling the modernized Cheyenne Super 10 and receiving “overwhelming nationwide interest,” they’ve decided to begin taking orders for similar customization jobs. Both on current, customer-owned trucks and new ones.

The full package runs $5,995 and can be applied to any 2014+ Silverado or Sierra. Or, if you’d rather pick and choose options, you can do that as well. But if it was up to us, we’d just go ahead and opt for the full retro effect. And we’d rock our “new” square body everywhere, bumpin’ some Three Dog Night on repeat. Once we figure out a way to make our 8-track work with the fancy modern stereo, that is.
