1968 Chevrolet C10 Patina Shop Truck
For your consideration is my 1968 Chevrolet C10 short bed. This truck is as unique and cool as they come. We just completed a full restoration on the truck in which I will outline below. The truck runs, drives, stops and handles beautifully without issue, and grabs attention wherever it goes. I encourage any potential bidders to contact me directly with any questions you may have at 602-799-2309 or mrjbennett11@yahoo.com. I own the shop that built this truck and know every aspect of the build, so please don't hesitate to give me a call with any questions big or small. My goal is to make the buying process as simple and easy as possible for the winning bidder. Thank you for taking the time to look at this stunning truck. Please enjoy a descriptive break down of every aspect of the build process, as well as over 100 high quality pictures below.
The exterior of this amazing truck received an extensive and one of a kind faux patina paint job. The truck was put back in its original white and red two tone color scheme with the correct GM paint codes. This faux patina paint is one of a kind, and done to an extremely high standard. We began with PPG base coats to achieve a very realistic layered look to give the truck a very authentic patina look and feel. After many grueling hours of critiquing and perfecting the faux patina, the truck was given three coats of PPG high solids satin clear to protect and preserve the work done. Additionally, the truck received brand new factory lower moldings and trim, brand new grill, headlights, tail lights, mirrors, bright work, weather stripping, 20" staggered Ridler chrome wheels (20X8.5 front and 20X11 rear) wrapped in brand new tires. The bed of the truck has been tubbed to accommodate the custom frame work and larger tires, then was professionally rhino lined to produce a very clean look.
The interior was given a much different approach. Our goal with this truck was to give it an original patina outside, however recreate the interior to a show quality fully restored level. We began with painting the inside of the cab top to bottom with PPG red, and sealing it with high solids PPG gloss clear coat. The truck was then given brand new factory style loop carpet, door panels, kick panels, dash pad, gauges, steering column, Lokar shifter, mirrors, visors, and bench seat, finished infactory 71/72 C10 black and white hounds tooth fabric. Additionally, the truck was given a complete brand new Old Air AC system, including vents, box, ducting, control panel, lines, wiring, fittings, compressor, dryer and condenser. The AC blows ice cold and works fantastic. The interior is of show quality and looks stunning against the aged patina exterior.
The truck has a fresh 350 4 bolt main with a mild cam, dual flow master 40 series exhaust with custom Corvette tips, Edelbrock performer intake, 650 CFM carb and chrome dress up kit. The motor has approximately 3,500 miles since its rebuild, and is mated to a freshly rebuilt TH 350 automatic transmission. The truck has a custom built one piece drive shaft, and is driven by a newly built Currie Ford 9 inch rear end. CPP master cylinder combined with 4 wheel disc brakes stop this truck on a dime! The truck fires up effortlessly every time, runs, stops and shiftsvery well and makes for great street or highway cruising. The truck is an absolute dream to drive.
Chassis& Suspension
The under chassis has been bridged, boxed and given a professional C Notch allowing the chassis and bodyto lay as low as possible. This truck lays rockers and has a very mean and aggressive stance at any ride height. Firestone bags, half inch lines and Viair valves gauges and control module make up the air ride system on the truck. The under chassis has been extensively cleaned and painted, and shows extremely well. Custom braided lines, wiring, newer ball joints, bushings and tie rods finish out the under chassis. This truck is tight, responsive and handles extremely well.
