We all have that bucket list truck we want to own or build. For me, that truck is a 1967-’68 patina 503 light green shortbed Fleetside C10, Project Last Chance!
We are going to build this truck in multiple phases. Phase 1 is to get the truck on the road for the Hotrod Power Tour in June of this year. With the help of some awesome sponsors and partners, I think we can make this happen! Phase 2 we will get the rust repaired and patina blended so the truck is 100% solid, add a coilover suspension setup, big brakes and a turbo.
Powering Project Last Chance is a low-mile LS1 and 4L60E we pulled out of a ’99 Z28 Camaro. Holley Performance is helping us out with the company’s black mid-mount front runner kit, high rise cast aluminum intake, 92mm throttle body, some slick two-piece valve covers to hide the coil packs and oil fill cap, and to make it all run we have its Terminator X Max harness.
Keeping this LS1 and 4L60E cool will be a Champion LS radiator from George over at Leadfoote Racing with high flow SPAL 2044 fans and external transmission cooler.
Dakota Digital will help us keep on our systems by providing its new RTX instrument cluster that has an old school feel with new technology. Because we will be road tripping this truck in the summertime, we will need a reliable A/C system. Vintage Air is providing its SureFit system for a non-A/C truck so we can add factory style A/C vents and keep that nostalgic look.
Helping me with wiring, exhaust and wrapping up the details before the road trip will be our friends over at C&K Metal located in Bunnell, Florida. Let’s get started!
