More and more people are beginning to appreciate classic pickup trucks, which are quickly becoming an in-demand commodity. A lot of these trucks come from the late 1960s and one of the hottest ones would be this 1967 Chevy C-10 from the C/K series. And even if they are not celebrating 100 years of building pick up trucks, this restored model would look great at 2017 SEMA Show. However, they will actually be celebrating the aforementioned event next year.
By looking at the photos, you will be able to tell that Chevrolet will be bringing the truck to SEMA and the Texas State Fair, with its Centennial Blue finish similar to what the special edition Colorado and Silverado are wearing. Furthermore, the C-10 gets the same bowtie badges as well that celebrate the automaker’s heritage. The restored model sits on a set of 20-inch chrome wheels that are wrapped in Pirelli P-Zero tires. As for the braking system, it had also been upgraded with new discs on the front and rear. Suspension wise, we can’t really tell what’s been done to it but we’re pretty confident that it isn’t an unimportant change. As for the mechanical bits and other modifications, the company did not really discuss any of these at the C-10’s reveal.
Since we were not given any information regarding the engine, we can only guess what’s underneath that hood based on what we can see. The 1967 C-10 has dual turn down exhaust tips at the back, and the P-Zeros are pretty solid brakes. However, it does not have a very wide body, we are thinking that it won’t have that much horsepower, but will be a good cruiser instead.
With so many trucks in their history, Chevy could have chosen any other iconic truck to get a special anniversary makeover. Some models that come to mind include the 1955 Cameo, and perhaps other models from the mid to late 1970s. Cars from this generation are becoming more popular to vintage collectors. But the 1967 model year is exactly halfway through the automaker’s 100-year truck history, which is what makes it extra special.
In other news, Chevrolet recently introduced the 2018 Silverado Centennial Edition and the 2018 Colorado Centennial Edition. Both models were made to celebrate the automaker’s 100th year in 2018. Similar with the restored 1967 model, the special edition models have the same paint job as well as the exclusive heritage-styled bowtie emblems, and “100 year” badges.
All three Centennial Edition trucks will be available at the 2017 SEMA show in Las Vegas, as well as the upcoming Texas State Fair. We are just waiting for further details on this car so that we can share them to you. So stay tuned.
