Here's a purpose built vehicle that started life as a C10. That's right folks, it isn't a Blazer but somehow it looks as if it is - or was. This is a tough, squarebody that's ready for off-roading, runs on dunes, canyon trails, or if you don't mind a little dirt in your teeth, mud runs. What you see is what you get with this custom Chevy. Simplicity and functionality was the name of the game with this build. It has a menacing figure thanks to Super Swamper tires, a lift kit, and dark gray paint. It's ready for adventure.
This truck has clean paint and the remaining body panels are straight. We don't know for sure, but it really doesn't look like this truck has been used off-road since it was built. It's clean and free of sand or dirt. If it was ours, we may have trouble getting it dirty since it is so clean and straight. Take a close look at the front end. Not only is there a custom tube front bumper and integrated bull bar, it has no headlights or turn signals. What you see on either end of the grille are plastic headlight buckets with decals which look like headlights. Since this truck is built for fun and offroading, taking the doors off and replacing them with hinged frames makes sense - just don't get caught in the rain. The bed of the truck was customized - or we suppose you could say it was extensively chopped up, just leaving the sides, which are fastened to a custom frame. The frame also holds a fuel cell which is centered in the area where the bed was. As you can see from the pictures, the outer fenders of the bed of the truck were brought in slightly, making the rear profile skinnier. The roof of the cab has been chopped off; along the top of the windshield, and just aft of the door openings. At all the points that were cut, the remaining body was neatly finished. 15 inch wheels are wrapped in Super Swamper tires, which keep you sure footed in any terrain.
Simplicity and functionality theme was carried into the interior as well. A simple, custom dashboard panel was created in metal and houses aftermarket gauges and a Kenwood stereo. A few speakers are mounted next to the B&M shifter, on the dashboard, and behind the bucket seats. Under the hood is a 5.7L V8 mated to an automatic transmission. The engine features Trick Flow valve covers, a Holley 4BBL carburetor, and Hedman Headers. The exhaust ends just before the rear axle with turned down tips. Disc brakes on all 4 corners help bring this custom Squarebody to a stop.
Wherever it goes, this classic squarebody is a menacing figure. Super Swamper tires, a lift kit, gray paint, and a 5.7L V8 under the hood are just a few of the components on this truck that make it worthy of adventure. Take it to the dunes, trails, mud bogs, or to cars and coffee with friends, it's ready for all of the above. Just don't get caught in the rain.
