C.J.FRITZ CAME ACROSS THIS ’81 CHEVROLET C-10 AS A MATTER OF HAPPENSTANCE IN HIS JOB AS A TRAVELING CONTRACTOR. In a case that very much relied on being in the right place at the right time, C.J. found the rust-free C-10 with 53,000 miles on it. The ’81 was on its second owners—both of whom were part of a family that had kept it for years, each of the kids learning to drive with it. Promising to bring it back to life, C.J. has worked to make it what you see today.
The C-10 has a 350-ci Chevy small-block engine and it wears its original paint, though C.J. has buffed it to showcase the original quality of the build. On the suspension side, the C-10 now features a 3- to 4-inch Ride Tech drop kit, which gets the Chevy a little closer to the pavement. Twenty-inch Boss Wheels have been swapped for the front and rear, giving the ’81 a nice pair of new shoes to hit the ground running. On the exterior, brand-new trim from LMC Truck keeps the Chevy looking sharp.
Most recently, and perhaps most impressively, the interior has been completely gutted. The all-new LMC Truck interior— featuring a new dash, door panels, new seat, carpet and other bells and whistles—has completely transformed C.J.’S ride. The next items on his list include an LS swap and additional suspension work, so we know this C-10 is in good hands.
