1968 Chevrolet C10
Gary Binge dropped me an email containing a bit of info and a few images of his good-looking 1968 Chevy C10. Gary's been the very proud owner of the 1968 for 13 years (he found it in Illinois back in 2002). Once he got it home, he got right to work. He replaced the worn-out old small-block with a new GMPP 350ci crate motor equipped with an Edelbrock Performer intake and carb, full-length ceramic–coated stainless Hedman headers, and 2.5-inch stainless exhaust with Hooker mufflers. Gary finished off the engine compartment with the addition of Tuff Stuff accessories, including a chromed alternator, power steering unit, master cylinder and brake booster. The well-dressed small-block was then backed with a slightly beefed TH350 and a 12-bolt rearend.
The interior is a mix of stock 1968 and aftermarket items like a Mooneyes wheel, Cal Custom "foot" gas and dimmer pedals, white-faced gauges, a Sunpro tach, a vintage 1967 "bullet" manifold vacuum gauge, and a chrome radio delete plate. While Gary handled the dash and cab upgrades Woody's Custom Interiors of West Virginia reupholstered the bench seat. While he was at it he lowered the pickup 2 inches on all four corners with Early Classic Enterprises lowering springs and gas shocks, and finished and installed a Bruce Horkey Show Deck wood bed kit. The exterior finish is a medium red and bright white, and still looks great even though it's 14 years old.
