This 1000HP 1963 Chevrolet C10 Sounds About Right!
We must say that over these past couple of years we have seen just about anything when it comes to amazing restored vehicles, vehicles that were brought to life yet once again. Pick-up trucks are somewhat specific and peculiar. Namely, you can either hate them or love them, and if you are the type of person who might not be much into them, this video will definitely change all of it. Hereby, we present you what could be the only 1963 Chevrolet C10 that you will ever need to see. It has been resurrected and given life to once again.
This LS twin turbo monster is all custom-built and it indeed it looks absolutely stunning. However, it was finally time to put it on the dyno and test its actual power. The guys who made it expected that the 1963 Chevrolet C10 would be able to produce as much as 1,000 HP, which is something amazing. We get the chance to see the truck as it placed and strapped on the dyno and it is getting prepared for the test.
After everything seems nice and ready, it was time to finally power up and push this monster to the absolute limit. Once it is up and going, it seems that nothing can stop it and stand on its way. The test is finally ready and once you take a look at the numbers, you are going to be shocked. The truck managed to go over 1,000 or 1,080HP to be precise.
A ’55 Chevy Pickup And Tahoe Chassis Swap You Want To See!
This builder used the shows to help with this awesome and unique build! Eric Baltazar looks forward to Saturday mornings to get his does of Power Nation how-to tech that he used for his 1955 Chevy pickup build. Along with the help of Greg Bush from Past Time Customs, they took the body off of a Chevy Tahoe and put a ’55 Chevy pickup on top of the full chassis suspension drive-train.
At first, Greg thought Eric was crazy for attempting this swap but they made it possible! They managed to get everything from wheel wells to fenders to line up, then it was on to the body work! Eric wanted a copper effect on the truck, and after a lot of work it turned out looking great. It may look antique on the outside, but on the inside it’s nice and polished. It’s a one of a kind build, that’s for sure!
We just have to give props to a build of this type because this guy did nearly everything on this truck himself and the best part is that he actually did all of it for the first time, as he puts it, his first welds in his life were to build the bender in order to make the roll cage for this truck.
You know that he has learnt everything the hard way and this makes this truck extra special in his eyes because there is rarely any part of the vehicle that did not go thru his hands at one point.
So when it was time for him to step up and show what this bad boy can do, you know he was extremely excited and once he started putting down sub 10 second runs, well that is all the props that he needs.
Let him tell you more about this vehicle and see it in action as he sends it down the track in the video bellow.
Everyone knows Chip Foose, and everyone knows that his design ideas can be really inspiring. In this case, his design is not the inspiration, but rather inspired by a 1967 Z/28 302 Small Block Chevrolet engine. He’s building this 1967 C10 pickup into the sport truck Chevrolet might have built in 1967 if the Camaro engineering team were able to build a Camaro inspired pickup. This thing is going to be pretty cool, with the aforementioned 1967 Z/28 engine, stick shift, and details. We’re excited to see this thing come together, and that is exactly what we’ll all be able to do since Chip’s crew is going to follow the project from start to finish.
Watch this first video to see his design process, plans for the truck, and the motivation that makes him want to build this one in particular. After you do, tell us what you think of this project.
Watch These 10 Awesome Radial Engines And All Of Their Glorious Specs
Radial engines may have had their day in the sun before turbines came into the picture and kind of took over the world of aviation but we still love them. Even the small ones are pretty big and boy can they make some power. This video looks at 10 of the best radial engines ever built from all over the world and doesn’t just show them, it actually gives the specs and history behind each one. This is not necessarily a grouping of the biggest and most powerful engines but rather some of the most durable, long-lasting, and largest volume ones ever as well.
There’s nothing like the sound that a radial engine makes, especially one that has a centrifugal supercharger on it like some of those that you will see here. The stories of servicing the multi-row engines used in big WWII era planes are pretty amazing. If the starting procedure failed there would be nearly five dozen plugs to change and multiple hours of work to change them. The way the exhaust comes off of the cylinders in the multiple row engines is also amazing and it gives the engine a really neat look as well.
____ If you love engines of the piston type, you will love this video. Bore and stroke, horsepower, applications, history, and more, this has a little something to tickle everyone’s gearhead fancy.
Classic VW Van Starts Breathing After 31 Years in a field!!
