Chevrolet C10 (1973)


Chevrolet C10 (1973)

In 1973, Chevrolet's light trucks were radically altered for a much smoother and modern appearance. The roof rails went in favor of doors which opened into the roof, and curved side glass was fitted. Along the waist line of the car was a sculpted curve, which gave the truck a wide feel. With their huge engine bays and brutish looks, the 1973 C10s soon became favorites for modification. This vehicle has had the ride height reduced with lowering springs at the front and block between the leafs and axle at the rear to effectively raise the axle up to the bodywork, thus lowering the rear. Also fitted were modern wheels and tyres to further enhanced handling. Under the hood the truck was fitted with a 1970 454ci (7.4-liter) Corvette big-block and with high-flow heads plus a high-lift cam, it has been known to cover the quarter-mile in 15 seconds.
