The V8 Speed & Resto Shop Crew recently finished a complete restoration on this 1964 Chevrolet C-10 pickup truck including suspension, rust repair and sheet metal fabrication, and more. They installed a GM L92 6.2 liter V8 powered by a Mast Motorsports ECM and using Holley accessory drive brackets, oil pan, and Hooker exhaust manifolds. A Mast cam and valve springs were installed, yielding approximately 525 horsepower. A TCI 4L60E transmission is used to provide an overdrive gear, and the truck rolls on Mob Steel 20" wheels. The finish is satin black with a charcoal silver roof, wheels, and side trim insert, and the bed is all new wood. The interior featured a leather seat, Vintage Air A/C, a Dakota Digital box to allow the original speedometer to work with the modern transmission, upgraded audio, and more.

One of the latest creations to come out of the V8 Speed & Resto Shop is this slick 1969 Chevelle wearing SS stripes and trim but featuring a hopped up 454 under the hood. The car is rolling on Rocket Racing wheels and features other subtle modifications like new leather upholstery in the stock original pattern from OPGI, tunes by Antique Auto Radio that look stock but is fully Bluetooth capable with MP3, Vintage Air A/C, and a full MagnaFlow stainless exhaust. The engine is basically built to LS-6 454 specs and features a Holley Street Avenger 870 carburetor, Hooker headers, a TCI torque converter, built TH400 trans, and a 3.42:1 geared 12-bolt rear axle. The owner replaced the quarter panels many years ago and brought it to V8 Speed & Resto Shop for new cabin and trunk floors, other metalwork, bodywork and paint, interior, assembly, and tuning. Today it wears Chevrolet Carbon Flash Metallic Black paint and bright red SS stripes and will be featured at the 2014 Muscle Car and Corvette Nationals in Chicago, November 22 & 23. You can see the build photos in the V8 V8TV / V8 Speed & Resto Shop Forum here: http://v8tvshow.com/forum/index.php?topic=72.0. Hats off to a great crew and a very cool owner for letting us bring this one together!
This '79 Pontiac Trans Am was restored once, then became the unfortunate victim of a rear-end collision. The car came to the V8 Speed & Resto Shop for repairs and a few upgrades to transform it into the stunning car you see here. This was another car that would attract passers-by to stop and stare or take photos when it was parked in front of our shop!
The 1957 Chevrolet project has been returned to the road! The V8 Speed & Resto Shop Crew has completed the restoration of the chassis, suspension, engine repairs, interior upgrades, some paint work, trim, glass, and other details to make this former barn-dweller a highway flyer once again. Who wouldn't have fun in a bright red '57 Bel Air complete with a 396 under the hood and a 4-speed shifter in hand?
