Unleashing the Beast: Velocity's All-New High-Performance Chevy C10 Street Truck


At the heart of this beast lies a brand-new GM LT1 V8, roaring with 460 horsepower and perfectly paired with a GM 10L80 10-speed automatic transmission. The under-hood action stays cool and efficient thanks to a Holley serpentine system, while a custom-built exhaust featuring Magnaflow mufflers ensures that this C10 sings a tune of pure power. Add in an independent front suspension, a Ford 9-inch rear axle with a 3.73 gear ratio, and 245/50R18 Michelin Pilot Sport tires hugging 18-inch Forgeline wheels, and you've got a truck that's ready to dominate the road.

The 1950s Chevy Restoration A Masterpiece Reimagined

A Storied History

This Chevy's journey began in the 1950s in Port Elizabeth, South Africa, one of the original Chevys built in that era. From there, it spent its career in the Karoo, around Oudtshoorn, where the dry climate preserved it remarkably well, leaving it with no rust at all. When the current owner purchased it from the original owners, it marked the beginning of an ambitious restoration project that would transform this classic into a show-stopping marvel.

The journey to create his dream car, a 1973 Ford Gran Torino, started when Gustav stumbled upon a rusted Torino body in a Delmas dealer's yard. The unique concave indentations on the side panels caught his eye, and he knew he had to have it. Despite the extensive rust and previous restoration attempts, Gustav was undeterred.
