Camaro-Powered C10 Restomod Is Velocity’s Second Chevy


Following the addition of the K5 Blazer last year, Florida’s Velocity Restorations now has another restomod Chevy truck product in its lineup, a 1967–1972 C10.

Rather than a new 4×4 chassis, the C10 uses a custom-built, rear-wheel-drive chassis from Roadster Shop. The C10 also comes with a 460-hp LT1 V-8 engine and a ten-speed automatic—essentially, the powertrain from a sixth-gen Camaro. The new chassis is far more rigid than the factory C-channel frame and also benefits from Baer six-piston brakes with 14-inch rotors. Modern wheels and tires put the power and braking to good use, as 18-inch Forgeline wheels and 245/50R18 Michelin Pilot Sport tires provide much more grip than the original sets.

Like the rest of the Velocity Restorations lineup, the body lines and original style of the C10 are kept intact, but the sheetmetal is finished to perfection and coated in BASF Glasurit paint. Much of the trim, including the door handles, is replaced with billet aluminum. Inside, leather upholstery and three-point seatbelts upgrade the bench seat. Ventilated seats are available. Audio duties are handled by an Aline head unit and Focal components, while HVAC duties fall to a climate control system from Vintage Air.

“Our Chevy C10 is an homage to the classic street truck,” said Velocity CEO Stuart Wilson. ”We have worked remarkably hard to do its legacy justice. American street trucks have so much history and culture behind them, and we’re excited to bring this classic performance-focused C10 to the world.”

This addition to Velocity’s lineup makes plenty of sense, as the firm is already familiar with the 1969–72 Chevy K5, and the interiors of the trucks will be virtually identical. Velocity even offers a complete interior package for the builder who wants to refresh a K5 on their own.

We’ve driven Velocity’s products before and the K5 we experienced last year was solid and fun to drive, with a responsive powertrain and an improved chassis. The sporty C10 is available to order this fall, with a starting price of $319,900, and an expected turnaround time of just 14 weeks.

    Looks nice. Still I know a few people who did an LS swap + manual transmission in their C10 and didn’t spend anywhere near $320k. No they did not have that interior, they had the original interior which still looks good.

    For that kind of money, you’d think they could find some mechanics who know how to fix old, genuine cars and trucks authentically, instead of turning out another Frankencar or truck. The engine is the soul of any vehicle. Change that, the drivetrain, suspension, what have you got? If you want modern, buy modern, if you haven’t the education, knowledge of, or exposure to appreciate the charm of the real thing.
