Restomods have become an integral part of the US car scene. Many older vehicles are being rebuilt and have modern engines and modern technology under an old shell. Of course, not only are old US sports cars rebuilt, but pickups too, like this 10 Chevrolet C1964, which is now on sale for a staggering $ 139.900 at Garage Kept Motors. Considering that the complete restoration of the car cost an astronomical $ 250.000, the advertised price for this vehicle is an absolute bargain. But now we will introduce you to the pickup in more detail.
Eyecatcher in “Rootbeer” brown.
This vehicle, which was painted copper brown and whose color is reminiscent of American root beer, impresses with its attention to detail. For example, various parts were painted in silver to create a pleasant contrast to the exterior color. Grill, bumpers, exterior mirrors, door handles and wheel covers give the pickup a perfect touch of warm and cool colors. The engine compartment in particular is unique, as it not only houses a modern LS2 V8 petrol engine with 6-liter displacement, which has found its way into the Chevrolet C10 Stepside with Holley injection, special valve covers, aluminum cylinder heads and forged pistons, but also The color also perfectly matches the exterior. In addition, the pickup rolls on steel rims in 20-inch format with a contemporary whitewall look. All in all, the Restomod Chevy is a symbiosis of vintage and modern, which is looking for its equal. In our opinion, the pickup would be a hot candidate for a trophy if it could be won at a US car meet.
The interior was also completely overhauled and modernized.
The interior impresses with its brown leather seats and the matching cockpit, which reflects the color of the exterior. In the interior, too, attention to detail and workmanship are close to perfection, which makes it possible to understand the initially exorbitant price of the individual item. For example, the automatic system can be controlled at the push of a button, as is known from many modern vehicles. Only a large display for the navigation and infotainment system was not included, but that would have been too much of a good thing.
LS2-V8 with a displacement of 6 liters generates a lot of power and torque.
Unfortunately, we only know which engine it is that was used in this newly built pickup, and we also have no precise information about the performance data and torque of the V8 gasoline engine. However, we assume that both the power and torque of the power pickup are in the mid three-digit range, and that the Chevy is more than good in the feed.
Unique item that is for sale.
As mentioned above, the one-of-a-kind is for sale for $ 139.900, and anyone with the necessary change can strike and get the one-off. If you are also completely fascinated by the moving work of art, but do not have a six-figure sum, then you can of course marvel at our picture gallery, which we have attached to this article.
