THIS ’72 CHEVRO­LET C-10 IS FAR FROM FIN­ISHED IN BRIAN MACKEN­ZIE‘S EYES, BUT IT AL­READY HAS MORE THAN ENOUGH TO BRAG ABOUT. The C-10 is pow­ered by a Chevy 383 stro­ker en­gine matched with a built 700r4 au­to­matic trans­mis­sion. A 12-bolt rearend with a 3.75 gear ra­tio fur­ther de­fines the ’72. Sus­pen­sion mods in­clude a Hotchkis TVS sus­pen­sion kit with cus­tom trail­ing arms, drop spin­dles and Ride­tech ad­justable HQ shocks that let Brian con­trol the height of his ride while giv­ing the Chevy per­for­mance han­dling. The C-10 sits on a set of pol­ished Race­line Burst 5 wheels with the 20-inch shoes wrapped in 295/40R20 rear and 255/40R20 front

Toyo Proxes tires. Four­teen­inch Baer brakes from Pro Per­for­mance give the Chevy real stop­ping power and Brian more con­trol on the road.

On the ex­te­rior, chrome and paint are clean, and a bed cover con­trib­utes to the build’s neat lines. The in­te­rior cur­rently fea­tures buddy bucket seats with cus­tom di­a­mond stitch­ing and match­ing head­liner, but Brian is wait­ing on a full over­haul for the cab.

With even more up­grades to come, we can’t wait to see where this C-10 ends up.
