ONE LOOK AT DEREK ATTWELL’S SWEET P ’70 CHEVROLET C-10 AND YOU CAN SEE ALL OF THE WORK THAT’S GONE INTO THIS CLEAN BUILD. Completely home built, a first for Derek, this C-10 hits it out of the park.
The Chevy brags a Gen IV smallblock 6.0L LS engine with Texas Speed cam to give the C-10 more power to the wheels. The transmission has been traded for a GM 6L80 six-speed, adding clutch-to-clutch shifting to the ’70. Full Porterbuilt Extreme Dropmembers keep Derek’s C-10 within kissing distance of the pavement, while the new CPP big brake kit adds stopping power. An Accuair setup and 22-inch Vision Legend wheels round out the list of suspension upgrades. Inside the C-10, Dakota Digital VHX gauges grace the dash and TMI black-and-gray hound’s-tooth interior make the cab look better than ever before.
With a cohesive and clean setup, it’s little wonder that Derek is proud of his sweet C-10 or that we’re calling it this month’s Hometown Hero.
