Busted Knuck­les

Get­ting There Quickly!


Bryan Hay al­ways wanted a ’67-to-’72 C10 short­bed. So when it was time to make that dream a re­al­ity, he jumped at the chance. What you see here is the hard work to get that re­al­ity rolling. The ’72 Chevy C10 is be­ing heav­ily cus­tom­ized by Chuck and Lane John­son at Oc­tane and Iron in Mag­no­lia, Texas. They have given this 46-year-old truck a solid start to a show-qual­ity life with a long list of work, in­clud­ing one-off metal fab­ri­ca­tion, cus­tom mod­i­fi­ca­tions, and prepa­ra­tions for plans to come. With the truck al­ready sit­ting low af­ter a host of sus­pen­sion changes by Scott’s Hot Rods and a set of 24-inch US Mags wheels tucked un­der the bare metal body, it’s al­ready a great look­ing piece of au­to­mo­tive art.

The list of am­bi­tious plans makes this project even more note­wor­thy. We don’t know if Bryan will ever ac­tu­ally haul hay with it, but we do know it will be haulin’ thanks to the Late Model En­gines LSX 427 with Gar­rett twin tur­bocharg­ers built by ProSpeed Au­tosports.

Bryan and his wife, Kim, will be rolling in com­fort af­ter Heath Moore In­te­ri­ors gets to work on the full cus­tom dash, iPad in­te­gra­tion, bucket seats, and console that will wrap around the buck­ets. Other plans in­clude dual 3-gal­lon Ac­cuair CVT tanks, a One Piece Prod­ucts win­dow kit, cus­tom rear wheel­tubs to mimic factory style, PPG teal/white paint, factory up­per body trim, and wood­grain lower trim.
