1968 Chevrolet C10 Pickup The Chevrolet C10 designation can be confusing at times, with the C-10, C-20, C-30, and then the line of K designations to throw in as well. The difference between C & K is C is 2-wheel drive, and K is 4-wheel drive. The numerical designation denotes weight maximum. 10 is 1/2 ton, 20 is 3/4 ton, and 30 is 1 ton. For consignment a C10, (1/2 ton), step side pickup truck, with some liberties taken in the form of straying from the original...slightly. At first glace all appears normal with this frame off restored hauler right out of 1968 until we breathe in the added extended cab, powerful consignor-stated 400ci V8, late model bed, and cushy interior. We\'re in hay hauler heaven, but you wouldn\'t use this to haul anything but ass, now would you? ExteriorExcellent straight panels, good gapping, a custom grafted in extended cab, a later model step side bed in the back and extending around to the rear roll pan, one can have access to the bed from all points around this truck. All this bathed in eye-catching vanilla cream with only a few minor faults and flaws that are barely noteworthy. Perfectly placed rubber gripping has been put on these bed steps to secure your footing along with smooth toppers along the sides of the bed. In the front of the truck the grille has been modified with vanilla body matching inserts and beautifully polished stainless running between the headlights. A note to the bed which has beautiful oak boards with chrome divider strips which even continue onto the tailgate. It\'s so clean that if it ever carried anything since the restoration, it was definitely covered to do so as it presents immaculate! The taillights have morphed into tall vertical odalisque spears and keep up the clean line while flanking the tailgate. Snazzy chrome 18 American Racing wheels are all around and shine over the white on the corners. All chrome is in very good condition on this restored truck. Interior Swinging open the door and we see a mixture of white steel and black plastic covering the doors. The steel is the upper and lower of the door with the plastic panel centrally located and housing the door release and armrest and a Sheridan pattern to break things up a little. A heavily padded black rimmed 3 spoke steering wheel fronts the black padded dashboard. The dash is all C10 and has upgraded Classic Instruments black faced gauges to monitor engine vitals along with the heater and AC slides and a white steel glovebox door. A Clarion AM/FM/CD player has been mounted in the custom carpeted center console and also has a small storage area, twin cup holders and the controller for the air ride suspension. Modern gray cloth fully reclining high back bucket seats flank a perfectly fit late model console with integral side speakers. In the extended cab area we notice a parcel shelf finished in seat matching upholstery which doubles as small storage areas. All of this floats in a sea of gray Berber carpeting. A gray headliner hangs above and frames the pop up tinted sunroof nicely. Drivetrain A tastefully blinged pro built consignor stated 400ci V8 engine is shoehorned into a beautifully restored engine bay. It is topped with tuned port injection and is backed by a 4-speed automatic 700r4 transmission. A 12-bolt brings up the rear and puts power out to the Nitto rubber. Undercarriage One has to love the extra effort these restorers put in when they take the frame off of the truck, then do the restoration. Absolutely clean and rust-free underneath with a red painted frame highlighting the vanilla white floors and rockers. With independent air bag suspension up front and a swing arm and air bags on the back. Power disc brakes are all around as well and for the exhale, headers feed down to dual exhaust with stainless steel mufflers. Drive-Ability Upon startup you are met with a snarl in the form of that 400 lighting and making some serious horses. Taking it thr
