2016 TRUCK OF THE YEAR
AND THE AWARD GOES TO …
CONGRATULATIONS TO JOE YEZZI AND HIS SQUAREBODY SYNDICATE ’74 CHEVY CHEYENNE SUPER 10, WINNER OF THE COVETED STREET TRUCKS 2016 TRUCK OF THE YEAR AWARD. Many first saw Joe’s C-10 in the November 2016 issue, where it stunned readers with its combination of classic resto-mod styling and stealthy high-tech engineering. Of course, readers of C/10 Builder’s Guide have been getting glimpses into this square-body god’s arsenal for a while now.
The amazing attention to detail seems to be what caught most voters’ eyes with the Syndicate-01 C-10; even items that seemed stock (like the steering wheel) are actually completely custom. The engine appears original at first glance, but upon closer examination reveals itself to be a retro-ized LS3. And, no one will ever forget the one-off Delmo Specials billet wheels built to resemble CST hubcaps.
Joe’s ’74 is a stunner, and its been voted 2016 Truck of the Year on our website, Streettrucksmag. com. To commemorate this monumental occasion, we teamed up with Philbuilt Designs to create some one-off awards. Winners of the Best Mini-Truck and Best Blood, Sweat & Gears Feature will receive custom-engraved, billet license plates. For Truck of the Year, Philbuilt Designs cut a completely unique billet trophy that has a base made to resemble a suspension link bar. These awards came out exceptionally well, and earning one is something worth striving for. Congrats again to everyone involved.
