What would Chevrolet do if they built a 1970 K-10 in vintage style today? That is exactly the question that this restoration project was designed around. Built in the factory as a K-10 Short Box with 4×4 option, the restoration was completed by the very talented JD Lusardi at Street Rod Factory in Mountain Home, Idaho, a builder with Riddler Award winning involvement in his history. According to the owner and JD, no stone was left unturned in this frame-off restoration. Now sporting a rebuilt LS V8 and rebuilt 4L60e automatic transmission, the truck now has the power needed to feel like a modern sports truck. Everything underneath was powder coated and polished where possible to create a beautiful show piece. A Rough Country 4 inch lift was installed to better fit the white lettered 33” tires, which are wrapped on 18” Detroit Steel Smoothie wheels. These wheels are retrofitted to fit the factory dog dish hubcaps for the true vintage look. Looking around the exterior, the Chevrolet Victory Red color may have never looked so good with lots of clear coat sprayed on top, sanded and polished as best as possible. An all new bed and floor were installed to insure no filler or rust, and every piece of chrome is new on top of that.
Inside, the all new interior features a beautiful leather wrapped bench seat, dash cover and door cards. To keep it still vintage style, the builders opted for keeping the manual crank windows and leaving the headlight dimmer switch on the floor. Modern touches such as a retro looking radio with Bluetooth, Dakota Digital retro looking gauge cluster with LED displays, and Vintage Air keep the ride comfortable and modern. Whether you are looking for a show truck or one to enjoy, this K10 4×4 is an excellent option for either.
