1970 Chevy C10 Pickup

I love the lines of the early 1970s GM pickups, probably because my dad had a 1972 GMC for a shop truck. I learned to drive a column shifter on that beast, and mastered the art of retrieving customer’s broken down cars with a push bumper mounted on the front.

Sam Rankin sent in pics of his ride, a 1970 Chevy C10 pickup with a blown 355 small block between the front wheels. The motor features Brodix aluminum heads, an MSD ignition with a Boots Timing Master, roller rockers, J&E pistons and Oliver rods. Sam is running the blower to make 10 pounds of boost at 3000 RPM. There’s no dyno sheet included with the pics, but my guess is somewhere north of 500 horsepower. That should get the crops to market on time.
