CHEVROLET C10 Rat Rod 1965

๐Ÿ’€๐Ÿš™๐Ÿ’จ I bought this Van back in 2009 off of a friend of mine & have owned it for the last 12 years.
The chassis was professionally lowered to create the rake & stance you see today. 
I took out the original old smoking 283ci engine & 3 speed manual box & replaced it with a USA ๐Ÿ‡บ๐Ÿ‡ธ imported pro rebuilt ยฃ6k 5.7 1996 Chevy small block vortec truck engine, with old school induction via a Demon carb & manifold set up. Very strong 300+bhp.
It runs very sweet & buzzes up to 6000rpm no problem, itโ€™s fitted with tuned stainless headers to exhaust with single box silencers which burble lovely on low revs cruising, but will wake you & the street up when you put the pedal to the metal. All this power runs very smoothly through the bullet proof TH400 auto box. Itโ€™s definitely not for the faint hearted, this thing does shift! 
I also fitted a ยฃ2.5k full front hub/disc brake & servo set up which you need to stop this beast, which it does, the old front drums just didnโ€™t cut it.
The front suspension system is pretty stock really, apart from the new lower springs/shocks & modified steering arms & new rods/arms fitted etc when the chassis was lowered. The rear has been modified to incorporate new adjustable coil over shocks as advised & supplied from Jimmy at valley gas speed shop.
What else can I say! Well shed loads more really ๐Ÿ˜‰ This is a true genuine blood & guts Rat Rod, the patina throughout is totally original, it was a California import and itโ€™s a solid as a rock. Thereโ€™s no lacquer or plastic coverings on this one, itโ€™s as pure as it gets with the mechanical guts to complement it. Itโ€™s Awesome ๐Ÿ’€๐Ÿ˜ˆ๐Ÿš™๐Ÿ’จ๐Ÿ˜Ž๐Ÿ‘
Iโ€™ve spent well over ยฃ20k on it since Iโ€™ve owned it & countless hours to get it how it is. Itโ€™s Probably the best C10 panel rat rod out there! Ive thoroughly enjoyed it, Iโ€™ve cruised far & wide and would drive it anywhere, itโ€™s very reliable & starts on the button every time. Drives & brakes straight & true. Itโ€™s all MOT,d and ready to drive away & have fun ๐Ÿ’€๐Ÿš™๐Ÿ’จ๐Ÿ‘
To those interested Iโ€™ve never shown it or taken it to any of the many English rod or custom meets, but I know it would be very well received. I took it down to the Le Mans classic & it had amazing crowds around it all week, it does turn heads.
