This 1970 pick-up had a restoration started on it 20 years ago; we pulled it out of a garage in summer of 2015. We began the complete transformation into the brand new truck you see today.
Exterior Very clean and straight body, all rust has been fixed. Fresh arctic white paint. All glass has been meticulously cleaned and all new rubber seals. Bumper is painted to match the wheels. All paint is DuPont Chroma base/clear system. Brand new red oak bed wood kit has been treated with turpentine and linseed oil, then varnished. New stainless bed strips and new bolts. New wheel tubes. Custom roll pan. All stainless in trim and has been polished, new square low profile mirrors.
Brakes All new brake lines connect the fully rebuilt rear drum brakes and the rebuilt front disc brakes to the new dual master cylinder and chrome power brake booster.
Suspension Street edge 3” drop spindles and 2” drop coil springs on the front, reinforced rear control arms with 6” lowering springs and rear mounted air shocks on the rear. All new ball joints, tie rod ends and steering components. New chrome tilt column shift steering column with 14” leather wrapped steering wheel. New Speedway transmission linkage.
Strong running 350 SBC with aluminum intake and Holley 650 carb. Rebuilt 700R4 overdrive transmission with street stall torque convertor. 12 bolt Yukon posi rear end with 3.73 gears. Front wheels are factory 1970 C-10 7” wheels with new 215/70R15 tires. New 90’s low pro center caps and beauty rings. Wheels have been painted GM silver fine metallic. Rear wheels are 8” 1970s Suburban wheels with 255/60R15 tires. Truck runs awesome and put the tires up in smoke.
Exhaust System Factory RamHorn style exhaust manifolds, new 2” exhaust connected to new Porter steel pack mufflers that exits through the box in front of the rear wheels through Schoenfeld exhaust savers and 3” chrome double rolled tips. Truck sounds killer and the box exit exhaust gives it an extra "Cool" factor.
Interior Interior has been completely redone with new carpet, door panels, kick panels, and wetatherstripping. Truck has a new blanket style seat cover that has been professionally installed with hog ring clips. New Custom Auto Sound retro AM/FM radio with AUX input hooked to 140 watt dual coil mono front speaker. Sounds great and hooks to your IPod or phone. Factory heat and defrost, new heater core.
Truck has had everything restored or replaced with new parts. Has a killer stance and great look. Rides and drives very nicely down the road.
