And if you're looking for a super cool cruiser that can be enjoyed for years to come, it's the classic of your dreams!
DESIGNED FOR SEMA
Built to debut Speedtech Performance's Pro Touring C10 chassis at SEMA, this incredible Chevy was assembled by Tom Argue Design of Clearwater, Florida. Raised by a family of gearheads who made components for OEM automakers, Tom Argue eventually founded a shop dedicated to restoring classics and building street rods. And, with this C10, his talented crew pretty much had carte blanche. The build began with a new cab that was fitted with 1-piece side glass and relieved of its drip rails. Behind that cab, the truck's bed floor was raised four inches and fashioned around 3-inch widened wheel tubs. Opposite that floor, smooth Slosh Tubz inner fenders joined a smoothed firewall. And that solid profile was eventually blanketed in Porsche Carrera White PPG that's dressed in satin Tungsten accents and dashed with red pinstripes.
In addition to crisp pigment, the truck's handsomely square proportions are lovingly highlighted with a roster of cool details. At the front of its body, a custom splitter founds a custom valance under a red bowtie, amber parking lamps and 7-inch Sylvania Zevo headlights. Behind that grille, a 'CHEVROLET' branded hood leads the eye to a tinted greenhouse that's centered between Satin Black wipers, polished bowtie mirrors and a modern 'shark fin' antenna. At the sides of that glass, a wet-look profile has been shaved of everything but traditional door handles and a billet fuel filler. At the center of that that profile, a massaged aluminum tonneau, supplied by LazerLite, shades stainless-trimmed Oak that's stained to match the truck's Tungsten accents. And at the back of those planks, a 'CHEVROLET' branded tailgate floats amid a custom roll pan and Marquez LED taillights.
CONNECT & CRUISE
Gaze upon this pickup's crisp engine bay and you'll find 6.2 liters of divine GM small block. Officially known as the Chevrolet Performance LS376/525, that trusty engine twists respectable 10.7 to 1 compression into 525 horsepower and 486 lb./ft. of torque! At the top of the block, a remote K&N filter element feeds a Porsche White air tube, which funnels wind in to a proven GM throttle body that fronts a white-tinged GM intake. That air meets spark in rectangular-port L92-style heads, which ride under Porsche White, Chevrolet-branded valve covers. A nodular crank, powdered connecting rods and hypereutectic pistons compress that volatile union. A racing-inspired ASA cam maximizes intake efficiency through better breathing. Speaking of breathing, that smooth valvetrain funnels spent gases through Speedtech Performance headers. There's a proven PRC radiator that's slid between a polished tank, a polished cap and dual SPAL puller fans. Vintage Air Front Runner serpentine components spin an aluminum water pump between a color-keyed alternator and a color-keyed AC compressor. Everything communicates well thanks to Chevrolet Performance Connect & Cruise electronics. And, as you likely deduced from our high-resolution photos, the all-aluminum mill wears glossy Matador Red skin that's complemented with niceties like relocated coils, FAST fuel rails, trick dipsticks and quality MSD plug wires.
A TRUCK FOR THE TRACK
With that kind of power on tap, it should come as no surprise that the bottom of this C10 features a host of noteworthy upgrades. Everything starts with a sturdy Speedtech chassis that features boxed and reinforced frame rails. Those bones ride a modern Speedtech suspension, which follows tubular control arms and two Viking coil-overs with a sturdy torque arm and two more Viking coil-overs. Behind the sweet engine, a proven 4L65E 4-speed engages a stout Ford 9-inch that's finished with 3.90 gears and 31-spline axles. Stops are provided by Wilwood 6-piston calipers, which squeeze drilled and slotted rotors. Modern power rack-and-pinion steering provides good feel and great performance. Custom, 3-inch exhaust plots a custom course through throaty Stainless Works mufflers. And power meets the pavement through color-keyed Forgeline MS3Cs, which spin 295/30ZR20 Michelin Pilot Super Sports in front of 335/30ZR20 Michelin Pilot Super Sports with redline accents.
HOUNDSTOOTH FOR THE WIN!
Many folks say there's elegance in simplicity, and the inside of this C10 certainly makes a case for that mindset. Wrapped in Dynamat, lined in Katzkin and detailed in houndstooth, there's enough contrast to keep the cockpit interesting without breaking the limits of good taste. The star of the show is power-operated buckets that were sourced from a 2008 Silverado. In front of those seats, a stylish dash hangs modern telemetry next to buttons for both the truck's transmission and ignition. Cruising is optimized by modern air conditioning and Pioneer touchscreen audio, which controls a 5-channel amp, a 10-inch subwoofer and 6.5-inch kick speakers. Rich carpet looks great stretched between simple door panels and metal foot pedals. And steering is channeled through a Sparco steering wheel with a red centering stripe, which spins paddle shifters around a tilting column.
If you're looking for a unique classic that mixes killer style with plenty of right-foot fun, this Chevy deserves your full attention. It's fast, it looks good and, most importantly, it's a quality build that'll provide years of great memories.

About Chevrolet
Chevrolet aka Chevy, founded in 1911 by Louis Chevrolet and William C. Durant is the best selling and biggest brand by General Motors -mainly due to low pricing.

No wonder Chevy the "working man's car" has become such an iconic part of Americana in films and pop-culture.

When talking about Chevy one must not ignore Chevrolet small-block V8 the world's most produced engine that has been in production since 1955 and still going strong.

Surprisingly, "America's only sports car" Corvette was introduced under Chevrolet brand rather than its own. To us the most memorable Corvette has to be The second generation (C2) Corvette, Sting Ray.

To compete with VW Beatle Chevrolet introduced Corvair a compact automobile built in 1960–1969 It was the only American designed, mass-produced passenger car to feature a rear-mounted air-cooled engine. Corvair handling was deemed notoriously bad mainly due to Ralph Nader's Unsafe at Any Speed. Although, any handling issues were soon solved the reputation did stick.

With Pony / Muscle car mania taking over the Americans, following the introduction of Ford Mustang, Chevrolet came up with one of its most famous models Camaro. During the first year alone they managed to sell 220,906 Camaros.
