Street Trucks - - WORD ON THE STREET -

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.
