The freshly criticized 1967 Chevy C10 is not just a silver lining, but a complete 800+ HP monster

Some conventional trucks are currently rotting abandoned. Others need a little determination to be saved. But if there is a positive side to their dire state, then it is the possibility of turning them into real street monsters.

When it comes to money trucks, this one is alive in both figurative and literal sense. First, courtesy of Emmanuel Brito, the virtual artist behind personalizatuauto on social networks, we can visualize its conceptual form. Then it’s in New Orleans, Louisiana, Daryl Duffy (aka pro_touring_life) to make it a reality.

So, let’s take a look at the real-world Chevy goodies first. That comes with both good news and bad news. The positive aspect of the current work project is that the builder recently took delivery of the custom truck chassis produced by No Limit Engineering. And it was custom designed to handle over 800 horsepower. Courtesy of an LT4 V8 engine and 8L90 eight-speed automatic transmission.

Sadly, there’s still a lot of work to be done before the chassis blends in with the cabin, as this Pro Touring transformation apparently started with the 1967 C10 looking like the proverbial rust bucket. No worries, it looks like this project builder is also very patient, so he probably has plenty of time to sort out all the little details.

In the end, hopefully the rebuilt and upgraded 1967 Chevy C10 Pro Touring will look exactly like Brito’s virtual CGI brush description. Complete with a 99% monochromatic silver look. Except for the black lip spoiler and bowtie emblem, Wilwood six-piston red brake calipers and that gorgeous wood-lined bed.

By the way, matching the body colors to the wheels or vice versa seems like the next big thing in terms of classic custom slammed pickup trucks. At least as far as the virtual domain goes, judging by the equally enticing creation we saw recently on rostislav_prokop’s account, as bright orange as … well, a real orange fruit!
