The popularity of the early Chevrolet C/K series has been growing among modern day hot rodders. C/Ks are coming to be thought of as the “Deuces” of today as they are plentiful in numbers, inexpensive, and easy to strip down and modify. The stock frame provides substantial rigidity, and the spacious engine bay provides for a wide variety of powerplant options and performance upgrades. Long regarded as a continuously evolving phenomenon, the hot rod ethos is one that remains a significant part of American automotive culture to this day. Today’s hot rod culture comprises of traditional hot rod builders, car clubs and even artists who have returned to the roots of hot rodding as a lifestyle. This modern interpretation has given birth to a new era of traditionalist styles and rodding-based events such as GreaseOrama, which promotes the “Greaser” lifestyle. Additionally, magazines like Ol' Skool Rodz, Gears and Gals, and Rat-Rods and Rust Queens cover hot rod events around the world. The prevalence of modern hot rod culture is further encouraged through popular television shows such as Count’s Kustoms and Gas Monkey Garage.

This 1970 Chevrolet C-10 faultlessly personifies the modern hot rod phenomenon. Very clean, well-built, and beautifully presented, it is an attractive hot rod built in the best cultural tradition. The Chevrolet C/K series was known for its dependability and was a go-to pickup for the working-class market. This generation of the C/K pickup was updated with a new modern appeal that was designed with added comforts and convenience items that had previously been reserved for passenger cars. While yesterday’s hot rods were often difficult and uncomfortable to drive, this C-10 features air-conditioning, power steering, power brakes, power windows and even an automatic transmission. It is built on a drop-center ladder frame, which adds stability and allows for that attractive lower cab design. The exterior of this 1970 C-10 has been finished in a glossy Midnight Blue paint scheme and the bed has been refinished with an ultra-sleek matching cover. The interior of the truck features two-tone tan and black seats with matching carpets and upholstery. Equipped with 6.2 liters of V-8 performance power, this C-10 pickup is ready to be enjoyed for years to come.
