Description for Chevrolet C-10 1962

1962 Chevy C10 pickup. Big back window. Short wide bed.
This truck started out as a small back window 6 cylinder with a three on the tree. After the third time the shift linkage jammed up it snowballed into what it is now. We completely blew the truck apart and did a ground up build. Even though the C10 is in red oxide sealer it is a full frame off build. Before every panel was sandblasted and sealed we shaved the stake pockets, firewall, antenna, wipers and welded in a roll pan. Porterbuilt gas assist hinges were installed. We also installed GSI billet door handles for a little cleaner look. We ditched the wing windows in favor of the Classic Truck Glass one piece power window kit. All the glass has been clear tinted with Solar Guards Ultra Performance ceramic window film. This doesn't darken the glass but has superior heat rejection for those hot days. The frame was blasted and back halved for the new air ride suspension. The 1975 factory chevy front cross member was pancaked to get the front where we wanted it to sit. We used a Ford 9" with discs in the rear and CPP drop spindles/discs up front. The Wilwood manual brake master cylinder is tucked under the dash to accommodate for the shaved firewall. Even though they are manual brakes, my 5'5 girlfriend has no problem getting it to stop on a dime. Instead of using the factory steering components, a rack and pinion was installed. Detroit Steel Wheels and Sidewinder whitewalls were the choice to finish off the look. I came across a 5.3L L59 Flex Fuel motor and decided what the hell, how many old cars can run E85. The fuel sensor and everything need to run the E85 was installed. For the transmission we used a fully rebuilt 4L60E and a shift kit. Instead of mounting the ecu on the inner fender like in the donor vehicle we built a mount on top of the transmission and did a wire tuck for a tidy engine bay appearance. The combo of the motor/trans/rear end gearing allows the truck to cruise along at 80 without a problem, while still being able to smoke them off the line. Headman headers and custom wheel wheel dump exhaust with Flowmaster Hushpower mufflers were also installed. Cooling is handled by a custom aluminum radiator and electric fans. The air suspension is managed by using Airlift 3h with a AC driven compressor and 5 gallon tank. The control is neatly tucked in a custom upper console along with a Dakota Digital 4 in 1 gauge. The gauge has fuel level, engine temp, oil pressure, and voltage. The factory gauge cluster has been removed and a panel installed in its place. The iPad in dash can be used with a speedometer app if needed. Being the engine is computer controlled a bluetooth/wifi dongle could be purchased for full engine stats on the iPad. On the interior a leather 2015 ford rear seat was used and heated elements were installed. A Flaming River column and a few Lokar pieces were used. The iPad in dash is linked to a JL Audio bluetooth interface that feeds audio into JL Audio's new VXi line of amplifiers. One 800/8 amplifier runs the Hertz Mille legend three way speakers housed in custom fiberglass panels. The JL 10" tw3 behind the seat subwoofer is ran by a 1000/1. The floor and back wall were sound deadened with MESA mat and a new loop pile carpet was installed. For night driving LED headlights were installed in flat glass 7" round housings. Under the torched wood bed there is hidden storage. It fits a set of golf clubs perfectly. The center section is removable for shows or if service is needed. A 16 gallon blazer fuel tank is installed under the rear section and the fill neck is behind the tailgate. There are many other small touches I'm sure I've missed. I wouldn't hesitate driving this truck anywhere, with only 50 miles on the build we drove it to Viva Las Vegas rockabilly weekend and it performed perfectly.
I reserve the right to end auction early due to it being locally listed as well.
