Saint Clair, Missouri, United States
1967 Chevy C10 Short Bed
Street Rod – Show Truck
You are looking at an amazing work or Art. Must be seen in person to appreciate the quality of this frame off restoration. No expense was spared and there are no short cuts whatsoever. It also only had the very best skilled experts touch it during throughout the entire build process. No shade tree 90% effort as seen on most restorations….. rather Barret Jackson Quality Craftsman that have perfected what they do. The detailed pics should show some of what I am talking about so you can get the idea. Of course, you can come see the car and inspect it, you will be speechless.
This truck has been driven enough to sort out any new build kinks and that could have been present. From the first start though, it has started, ran and driven perfect. In total, I’ve driven it 385 miles to be exact. It is 100%, no issues whatsoever. It drives much better than when it was new in 1967. Mechanically perfect, no issues of any kind. It drives straight, stops great, runs cool and handles excellent. Quality sound deadener was used throughout the interior compartment to cancel road noise, it is very quiet inside now and has a very solid, new car feel to it. The driving experience is nothing like you would expect from a 67 era truck, it is nothing short of exceptional in every way. The exhaust note is deep and throaty with some rumble, but not at all offensive or annoying like some. Turn key and go and it puts a smile on your face that just won’t go away. On a scale of 1-10 in the following categories I’d rate is has follows:
Quality of paint and body 10
Running and driving 10
Creature comforts 8 (no ac)
Power / performance 10
Listing everything would take hours, here is a
Paint and body / Frame off rotisserie Restoration $25,000
Interior / Gauges / Column / Stereo / Wiring $ 2,500
496 CI BBC Hot Street Engine / 400 Built Trans / Rear $12,500
Suspension / Wheels / Fuel System / Cooling / Exhaust $11,000
This build is extensively documented and will come with a huge pile or receipts and details. I have most, but not all of the build paper work.
That build dollar is not counting misc little things or the price of the truck to begin with. This is real money and some would try to recover 100% of the build cost or more. The way the truck looks and drives I think that would not be out of line. I took over the process on my dollar when a friend hit a ‘brick wall’ financially speaking to finish it due to the auto plant where he worked closing. I had a complete car that needed nothing so we made a trade. At that point, the truck was 70%-75% complete. I got into it from what I felt was a great deal and will pass that along and more to sell it. I knew the complete history of the build and had full confidence in all work that had been performed as I know the shop that did most of hit as well as him. I have a restoration shop, the remainder of the work was done by me.
Body, Paint and Frame:
The entire process started by with a complete disassembly of the truck, down to every single nut and bolt being removed, bagged and labeled. From there, all parts that were to be reused were media blasted and epoxy primed for excellent paint adhesion. This included the frame, cab body and all misc parts. Then, all new body panels were purchased – including fenders, bed sides, inner wheel openings, tail gate, doors, hood, rockers and cab corners all new. Each panel was installed and straightened as needed to perfection. Then, the car was put together to fit all panels and achieve perfect body gaps. Finally, it was block sanded several times and then its’ beautiful Code 81 Flame Red Base Coat Lear coat was carefully applied and buffed to perfection by one of the best painters in our area. The bed was done in beautiful Oak and it turned out perfect. This phase of the build was done by a restoration shop called Custom auto works by the renowned Wally Enders.
Engine and Drivetrain:
Next came the engine build, no corners cut here. I wanted a great street motor with power to spare. To achieve that, a totally race prepped short block was acquired from a local racer and sent to a top notch machine shop for the works. A set of rare and highly sought after corvette L88 heads were totally gone through as well with all new valves and race valve job. A healthy but not too radical Competition Cams cam was purchased and the engine was completed with an Team G aluminum intake, Pro Systems 1,000 cfm holley carb, MSD distributor and custom ceramic coated Cooks 2 and 1/8th” headers with a custom full mandrel bent 3” aluminum coated exhaust out the back. It ended up making plenty of power . Yet, it drives very tame when you do not press the gas pedal too hard – which was exactly what I hoped for. I’d estimate the horsepower to be at least 550hp but closer to 590-610hp. It is a rush for sure, I did not build it to be a race car, but it is very powerful and if you like horsepower you will LOVE this truck.
All the supporting cast is top notch as well. Fully pro built automatic 400 turbo trans, Transmission Specialties torque converter spec’d for this build, built rear end, drive shaft, etc. Complete professional wiring from Painless, cooling system and fuel system all the best money can buy.
This truck runs, looks and drives amazing. It lacks nothing, turn key and drive to any show and take first place.
I’ve built dozens and show cars and have been doing type work for a living for over 25 years, so I have a trained eye. This truck is second to none, top to bottom. Bid with confidence as there is zero chance of being disappointed. PLEASE look closely at the pics, they were all just taken and I used a high resolution camera to try to show the details well. There is no photo shop stuff the pro’s do to make things look better and nor am I a photographer, but I assure you the truck looks as good or better than the pics show it, no surprises here. Title is clean, free and clear and in my hand.
NO SCAMS – NO TRADES – NO PICTURE COLLECTORS – NO DREAMERS. Please, serious buyers only with the funds to buy inquire or bid on this truck. The truck will not leave my shop until it’s paid for in full. I have spent a lot of time describing the vehicle so as not to waste you time, please do not waste mine.
636-744-3800 – SERIOUS BUYER ONLY please, text or call.
Thank you for looking!!!

Redesigning an icon is a difficult task, especially when you've got a blank sheet of paper in front of you and the all-new C7 Chevrolet Corvette Stingray is intended to be your final objective.
General Motors has released a new short video featuring Kirk Bennion of the Corvette's exterior design team, talking about the challenges of sculpting Chevrolet's new flagship sports car and the five goals the team had to keep in mind as it worked. In the end, Bennion's team had the pleasure of seeing their hard work take center stage as the Corvette captured the world's eyes at the Detroit Auto Show earlier this year.
You can now put prices to your wildest option-sheet dreams of the 2014 Chevrolet Silverado and GMC Sierra. A microsite for the full-size pickup truck twins has been up since January, and now the full-blown configurator is live and ready to take your virtual orders. The only two chassis configurations available at the moment are the Crew Cab with either a short or standard bed - Regular and Double Cab versions will come later. In Silverado flavors that will run you $32,710 for the short box, $33,010 for the standard box, while the Sierra adds a $1,500 premium to both of those prices, and destination and handling for both models adds another $995.
Since these are American pickups the list of modifications is lengthy, but we added $11,450 in just two steps by starting with the Silverado Crew Cab and standard bed, then checking four-wheel drive and the LTZ Z71 package. Our final truck, resplendent in Brownstone Metallic paint, heated and cooled Cocoa/Dune perforated leather seating and tasty details like chrome recovery hooks, and engine block heater and LED cargo box lighting, rang up $57,285 at the candy store.
They'll be on dealer lots sometime this summer, so now's a good time to start practicing your box-checking.
Chevrolet Camaro goes to South Korea - Click above for high-res image
General Motors decided several years ago to begin heavily promoting Chevrolet as its global mainstream brand even in markets where its existing brands like Opel and Daewoo were a dominant force. Today, at the Busan Motor Show in South Korea, GM Daewoo president Mike Arcamone announced that the Camaro would lead the way in GM's efforts to market Chevrolet in South Korea.
For now at least Chevrolet and Daewoo-branded vehicles will coexist in the Korean market. However, while we were in China last week GM officials told us that the Daewoo brand, which has been somewhat tainted by past quality issues, would eventually be phased out in favor of Chevrolet. When the new Aveo launches next year it will likely be badged as a Chevrolet even though GM Daewoo is in charge of engineering the car.
