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.
