Europeans have classic Porsche restomods, and Americans are quickly starting to fall in love with classic pickup trucks – with Chevrolet’s C/K series from the late 1960s now a hot commodity.
And with the automaker currently deep in its 100th anniversary truck celebration, it’s obvious a 1967 C-10 is a great idea for the upcoming SEMA edition. With 2018 marking the automaker’s huge milestone, this particular truck is certainly one for the ages. Unfortunately, Chevrolet isn’t gracing us with the full detail scoop on this classic restomod – only mentioning it will grace SEMA. The 1967 C-10 is in line with the special-edition Silverado and Colorado anniversary models, finished in the same bespoke Centennial Blue paint and also packing the vintage-themed bowtie emblem.
The truck gets chromed 20-inch wheels shod in Pirelli P-Zero rubber, while the braking system is now according to modern standards with discs front and rear. No official word just yet, but as far as the ride-height is concerned, we’re pretty sure the engineers also cooked up some pretty awesome suspension modifications as well. No mention of the power output as well – but judging by the dual turn-down exhaust tips at the rear we can expect it not to shame itself on the motorway. The P-Zeroes are great tires, but without being as wide as the truck we can imagine they’re for a modern, appropriate stance rather than breaking drag racing records.
