The Team of RACE! SOUTH AFRICA presented one on his website yesterday Rat Rod Pickup Truck (Restomod project) based on an old 1966 Chevrolet C10 which may not be unmentioned on tuningblog. The tuner was, so far as we know, not responsible for all changes but for some of the most important. Let's start with the wheel set from Forgiato Wheels. An 21 inch large three-piece was installed here Forgiato F-Clinique Billet wheelset with matt black rim star and shiny rim beds which also carry a silver-plated screw connection and tires in the format of tires in 265 / 30 ZR21. If you look closely you can also a new brake system from the house Wilwood recognize the red 6-piston brake calipers and large perforated & slotted brake discs that attracts attention.
In addition, there was a heavy lowering that was achieved by Airride air suspension and ensures that the formerly high-legged C10 pickup moves on the request to the last millimeter in the direction of the road. While the body in good old ratlook look (worn, weathered, worn) with real patina and lots of rust, the front and rear bumpers are painted matt black and the same applies to the radiator grille and the “Fleetside” and “C10” emblems. Incidentally, the radiator grille got retrofitted LED xenon headlights from a Jeep Wrangler which leave a modern retro look and of course provide significantly improved illumination of the road.
And the interior has been completely redesigned as the original C10 seat was replaced by three individual seats covered with Ox Blood Red leather and decorated with a diamond stitch pattern. Incidentally, the same applies to the new door panels which are equipped with a chain to close the doors which is a really cool gimmick. Another visual highlight inside is certainly the billet aluminum steering wheel and of course the discreetly mounted displays for the air suspension in the center console. Under the bonnet, there was a highlight still a powerful V8 supercharger which delivers power to the rear wheels by means of automatic transmission.
Unfortunately, we do not have any more detailed information about the engine power or the installed transmission, which of course annoys us. The bullet brings certainly over 400 HP and we hope that we can say more about it soon. The C10 is rounded off with a subtle “RACE! Speed Shop ”stickers on the doors and tiny black taillights on the completely rusted rear. If we get some more detailed information, there is of course an update for this report. You will be informed about this if you simply use ours Feed subscribe to. Have fun watching the pictures and stay true to us!
