Cus­tom 1966

Street Trucks - - HOMETOWN HEROES -

CALEB VOIROL’S ’66 CHEVY C-10 CUS­TOM CAB IS NOT JUST A PROJECT, IT HAP­PENS TO BE HIS DAILY DRIVER. The truck has mostly orig­i­nal paint and an un­cut dash along with the orig­i­nal bed wood floor. Caleb per­son­ally built the 355-ci mo­tor last fall start­ing with a bored, honed and decked 1970 four-bolt main steel crank mo­tor. An added Edel­brock 1405 600-cfm carb and Edel­brock’s Per­former

EPS in­take work along­side the Lu­nati Voodoo 60102 camshaft and lifters. He used 11.5:1 flat-top alu­minum pis­tons, Sum­mit Rac­ing 202-style iron heads, a Melling high-vol­ume oil pump and a Moroso 7-quart oil pan. A cus­tom-ma­chined alu­minum pul­ley spacer was needed to run the orig­i­nal

283 pul­ley setup on a 350 crank with a short water pump. The stock 1966 C-10 air cleaner sits on top with a Sum­mit Rac­ing flat base and a GM L79 327 fil­ter el­e­ment. Be­fore bolt­ing it in, the mo­tor was painted with the orig­i­nal 327 green, and clear-coated bare steel 283 valve cov­ers top it off.

The sus­pen­sion has been low­ered 2 inches in front and 4 inches in the rear us­ing

CPP springs and a pan-hard

bar setup. Wheel Vin­tiques 15x8 smooth­ies are bolted in the rear with cus­tom hub­cap adapters, while stock 15x6 steel wheels ride up front with orig­i­nal 1967 C-10 hub­caps. “This truck is a re­li­able and fun daily driver.”— Thanks, Caleb. ST
