5.3L LS V8 Vortec
The bold two-tone and sporty stance instantly shows off this 1979 Chevrolet C10 Custom Deluxe as something special. And when you see all the other upgrades like the fuel-injected motor, overdrive transmission, and custom A/C interior, you can see this was done to be a thoughtful total package.
The custom paint package intertwines the vivid blue and silver. These are two distinct colors that are united in freshness and luster because this build was a frame-off restoration completed in 2020. It\'s a quality total package with a black pinstripe providing a clean dividing line. And we particularly like the way the layout draws attention to the desirable stepside bed. Plus, this is attractive for its speedy upgrades. There\'s a power dome on the cowl hood, side dual exhaust, and lowered suspension. But even with all these upgrades, they also took the time to present a great classic. The grille is inspired by the stock style, but it\'s a newer piece to make sure it goes with the mirror-like chrome bumper. Those wide tires are mounted on classic Rally wheels. And the bed looks absolutely awesome with all that fresh and glossy lumber.
The interior starts with classic truck appeal and then adds in solid upgrades. For example, you have the classic bench seat, but it\'s done in a custom silver and blue to go with the exterior. The same goes for the door panels, sun visors, and dash. And we particularly like the blue interior lighting. There\'s the right added comfort with features such as retro-style AM/FM digital stereo and cold-blowing R-134a air conditioning. And it\'s built for driving with an upgraded sports steering wheel, tilt column, and upgraded Dakota Digital gauges.
The 5.3-liter Vortec fuel-injected V8 comes from the truck branch of the LS motor family tree (likely only about 65k miles on the motor.) So that makes for a great modern powerhouse that respects its lineage. It fires up readily and runs with that ideal modern V8 strength. There\'s a nice set of long tube headers that add both muscle and rumble as it feeds the side-exit Flowmaster exhaust. This one is built to be an all-around driver. So the aluminum radiator helps keep you running cool even in traffic with the A/C running. And the 4L60E four-speed automatic transmission was rebuilt with Corvette servo for better shifting all the way into overdrive. Plus, power steering, power brakes, front discs, and fresh suspension components make for a confident cruiser.
Complete with the build receipts, this is the well-done custom package that gives you a cool classic with everyday appeal. Don\'t let this deal slip away, call today!
