Street Trucks - - WORD ON THE STREET -

IF YOU SAW THE SPRING 2017 IS­SUE OF THE C/10 BUILDER’S GUIDE, YOU NO DOUBT SAW OMAR DELGADO’S WILD ’70 C-10 ON THE COVER. For his next trick, he’s com­pletely re­vamp­ing a ’71 K5 Blazer, which wears a ’67 front clip.

Work will be per­formed by 3R Auto Body, Castro’s Cus­tom and Way’s Cus­toms. The whole body will be shaved and molded, with the wind­shield tilted back for a road­ster look. Once fin­ished, the Blazer will be wear­ing House of Kolor’s Cobalt Blue Kandy paint.

A com­plete ACME Chas­sis Fac­tory Level 3 chas­sis will pro­vide a solid foun­da­tion for the build, with Slam Spe­cial­ties and Ac­cuAir get­ting the frame off the ground when it’s time to roll. A nar­rowed Ford 9-inch and Wil­wood brakes will sit just be­hind the 24x15 Spe­cialty Forged

SS104 Sport Se­ries billet wheels and 405/25R24 Pirelli tires. The front will wear match­ing Wil­woods and 24x9s with 255/30R24 Pirellis.

Based on Omar’s wheel choice, you’ll be glad to know that a built LSX is in the works; with San­der­son head­ers and a cus­tom Car­ven ex­haust work­ing their way around the 4L80 tranny.

Once the ma­jor­ity of the ex­te­rior work is com­plete, Daniel’s Cus­tom Upholstery and Auto Im­age Cus­tom will han­dle the fin­ish­ing touches with a one-off in­te­rior treat­ment. We’ve got our eyes on Omar’s build, and we hope to bring it to you in its com­pleted form be­fore long.
