Someone forgot to tell this 1986 Chevrolet C10 502 Pro Street that it's supposed to be a pickup truck. Before all the work got started it was a highly desirable, 1-owner Square Body truck that was enjoyed as a daily driver, right up until that original owner thirsted for more excitement and decided to turn things up to 11. What came next was a no-expense-spared build from the ground-up, transforming this former daily-hauler into the wicked street machine you see before you. With a Supercharged 502 V8 crate motor under the cowl hood, a custom suspension featuring a narrowed-and-tubbed rear end, a roll-cage interior, and a red-hot paint job, this is the C10 your Momma told you to worry about.
<br><br> Finished in searing red paint like any self-respecting hotrod truck should be, this Box Chevy would ordinarily keep a lower profile. Sure, these trucks have always been popular and good looking, but the added ingredients featured on this slammed beauty have given it off-the-charts curb appeal. With the addition of a fiberglass cowl hood and that big blower, this truck isn't sneaking up on anyone, and that's entirely the point. Add in the billet grille, chin spoiler, tonneau-covered bed, and those giant racing wheels and this beauty lets everyone know it's not just Poppa's weekend hauler anymore. The low-slung body looks incredible sitting atop the narrowed rear end, punctuated with those deep-lipped alloy wheels and fat MEATS, but the builder was wise to still keep the original Square Body look intact. Nothing's shaved or chopped, the stock bumpers remain, and there are no gaudy decals or air-brushed graphics of a cheetah mounting a lightning bolt down the side – resulting in a clean, chiseled look that never looks dated. This truck was finished over 25 years ago, but with the timeless design choices and conscientious care that's kept the truck in great shape, nobody would guess the age of the build. As the story goes (and the Vehicle History Report backs up), the original owner bought this truck new in AZ, built it into this monster in the late-'90s, and enjoyed it sparingly until 2010. It stayed in warm, dry AZ up until 2017, until it was then sold at Barret-Jackson in 2017. With all that in mind, the laser-straight body absolutely makes sense, as do the great gaps, flush doors, and symmetrically aligned panels on this C10. With a deep luster and great shine, the faithful red respray still looks great today, with only minor imperfections to speak of on this top driver-quality rig. And we're talking micro-imperfections that could largely be remedied with a buff-and-wax, meaning this handsome beast is worthy of top trophies from the local car show scene. A lack of side trim really lets that red paint do most of the talking, although there's plenty of blinging brightwork as well, from the bright bumpers at the end caps, to the wheel arch moldings, and even the trim around all the glass. The bed was reworked to accommodate the tub, and a quick look under the black tonneau cover shows that it was all done the right way.
<br><br> The interior is pretty much standard Chevy pickup, albeit with a couple of notable performance upgrades. A 4-point roll bar was added for safety and to stiffen the body, but it was integrated in a very unobtrusive way, allowing for the stock bench seat and matching door panels to remain in place. The handsome burgundy fabric is comfortable and attractive for long hauls and given its clean condition, it's obvious this truck has been lightly used and well-maintained. Matching carpets insulate the floors, a sporty aftermarket steering wheel anchors the cockpit, and the burgundy dash is accented with billet panels that are continued on the door panels. A full set of AutoMeter gauges were installed into a billet gauge bezel to keep a keener eye on the big block drivetrain, and factory options include a tilt wheel, seatbelts, cruise control, power windows/locks, an AM/FM/Cassette stereo, and even cold R134a A/C. Tinted windows add privacy inside, and for those days when A/C isn't needed, the rear window slides open.
<br><br> Under the hood is where the real fun starts, via the mammoth 502 V8 crate engine and Weiand 675 blower. The top end of the big block was beefed-up with rocker studs, girdles, and roller rockers, and it's augmented with a BDS drive system, a BDS linkage, AN fittings throughout, and dual QuickFuel 4-barrel carburetors that help feed the beast. It's reported to have 750HP and judging by the soiled pants our sales guys returned with after a test drive that rating is probably conservative, so let's just say it has WAY more power than any human would ever need. The engine bay is a thing of beauty with polished and detailed components everywhere you look, including several billet pulleys, brackets, and firewall/inner fender overlays. A BeCool radiator keeps it cool even with the hammer down, and those block-hugging headers feed into an Edelbrock dual exhaust system that exits at the sides and sounds EPIC. The TH400 3-speed automatic transmission was fitted with a TCI convertor and is a great complement to the big engine, keeping it in the sweet spot and pegging full power with quick downshifts while the narrowed 10-bolt posi-traction rear end filled with 4.11 gears won't complain about all that torque either. The suspension has been lowered and leveled and features upgraded A-arms, rear traction arms, heavy-duty shocks/springs, and power steering and power front disc brakes that improve the truck's road manners. Polished Center Line wheels add a performance look and carry 225/70/15 BFGoodrich front and 31x18.00x15 Mickey Thompson meats that fill the truck's wheel arches perfectly.
<br><br> An insanely powerful and supercool truck with lots of power on tap and the suspension to use it. Yeah, it'll still haul, but it would rather be chasing streetrods. Call today!
