1979 Chevrolet C10 Frame-Off Newly Built Restomod
Early Chevy pickups are among the nicer rides in the collectible vehicle market when it comes to polished customizations. However, the variety and inventiveness that are driving the historic truck scene become a bit more pedestrian for every “Farm Use” workhorse that is restored and banged.
Thankfully, there are still animals like this seriously awesome C10 that serve as a reminder of how great today’s builders are at transforming original ideas into usable works of art.
This trick truck is the definition of hardworking American muscle, powered by a GM Performance 350 cubic inch engine with an upgraded performance cam and roller rockers and supported by a sturdy performance Turbo 350 automatic transmission. Additionally, they simply don’t get any prettier if you’re looking for a show-worthy cruiser that revitalizes old-fashioned ambition.

After a thorough restoration, the experts at Denny’s Bowtie Restoration skillfully sorted a strong profile that is wrapped in those pigments. And as of right now, this beast is a recognizable Chevrolet icon, ready to spark discussions at gatherings and put an end to arguments at the stop sign!
There isn’t much you can do to improve the attractiveness of an Action Line Chevy. The truck’s robust style was a hit when it was first unveiled, and it still stands as a fantastic representation of some of the best features of the renowned Mid-Century movement today.
