Street Trucks - - WORD ON THE STREET -

AN ’85 C-10 THAT WAS A BACKBURNER PROJECT FOR SQUAREBODY SPE­CIAL­ISTS HAS FI­NALLY BEEN GREEN-LIT FOR COM­PLE­TION, AND IT WILL BE EVEN WILDER THAN ORIG­I­NALLY PLANNED UN­DER THE DI­REC­TION OF NEW OWNER BRYAN EVERETT. The truck, which has been named Ol­lie, is cur­rently un­der a full frame-off ro­tis­serie re­build at Squarebody Spe­cial­ists, with a 525-hp LS3 backed by a 6L80E tranny.

Other build de­tails in­clude a static 6/8 drop, tubbed bed, tubbed front end with new Slosh­tubz Mild Tubz (which Squarebody Spe­cial­ists as­sisted in de­vel­op­ing), Wil­wood Prospin­dles, Wil­wood 16-inch brakes, and 20x11 and 20x13 one-off Pro Tour­ing wheels.

The in­te­rior will be kept com­fort­able with a Vin­tage Air setup and cus­tom stitch­ing by Re­cov­ery Room. Once the rest of the work has been com­pleted, Bo Vescio at Vescio’s Restora­tion and Cus­toms will han­dle the body and paint­work.

We ex­pect to see Bryan’s C-10 at SEMA, at which point we’ll hope­fully have more to share.
