The custom paint theme makes this 1980 Chevrolet C10 Restomod instantly distinctive

And when you see the loaded A/C interior, overdrive transmission, and fuel-injected Vortec V8 upgrade, you can really see how this classic style machine has a terrific everyday appeal.

The paint theme is a thoughtful style. It utilizes a glossy black as the background to make the silver and orange stripe package pop. And we like that this gets extra attention because it’s inspired by the iconic ’57 Bel Air. So it connects this iconic pickup with one of the most iconic hardtops of all time. The style really is comprehensive with the black paint on the front bumper, custom rear roll pan, sport mirrors, and even the Chevy bow tie. It’s an overall driver-quality presentation, and that’s a good thing because this is a truck that was made for effortless cruising. You’ll see more of that theme in the interior and engine bay. But for now, also take some time to notice all the other thoughtful details that make this such a cool custom. It includes the sporty US Mags wheels, shaved door handles, upgraded headlights, fender portholes, soft tonneau covers, and custom tailgate with frenched license plate.

The interior keeps the right spirit of originality, but you can also see a ton of investment in upgrades. For example, you still have a bench seat, but it now is a custom contoured unit that is as comfortable as individual buckets. The black carpets look new, and there’s a tasteful red tweed on the dash, headliner, and custom door panels. So this is quite an inviting atmosphere. This has all the right comfort features, like cold-blowing R134a air conditioning, tinted windows, sliding rear glass, and an upgraded AM/FM/CD stereo with Bluetooth. An upgraded sports steering wheel, billet levers, and AutoMeter Pro-Comp gauges give you a properly upgraded driving experience.

What makes this a true restomod is in the engine bay. The 6.0-liter Vortec fuel-injected V8 comes from the truck branch of the LS motor family tree. So that makes for a great modern powerhouse. This one features aluminum heads, a serpentine belt, and shorty headers feeding into the dual exhaust. It fires up readily and runs with that ideal modern V8 strength. The power steering and 4L80E four-speed automatic transmission with highway-friendly overdrive makes for an easy-cruising pickup. Plus, power brakes with Wilwood discs up front and modern sport performance tires deliver a solid feeling of control.
