Week to Wicked: The Wrap-Up

Amazing how quickly a week can come and go. But what's even more amazing is how quickly an average, albeit very nice, 1970 C20 farm truck can be transformed into a modern performance C10 short-bed!

And that's precisely what transformed last week: Monday morning at 8am sharp, the long-bed was driven into TEN's Tech Center, and by 11pm Friday night, it was leaving layers of burnt rubber in the parking lot outside. In the course of five full days, the truck was taken from a long-wheelbase 3/4-ton hay hauler—the frame shortening portion with Brothers Trucks taking just a few hours—to shorty hauler of the more potent kindone that hauls you by the seat of your pants thanks to its Mast Motorsports 700+hp LS7, Performance Automatic 4L80E four-speed overdrive, full CPP performance suspension, brake, and steering package. And as all this was taking place, it was brought to you in spurts of real time via Facebook Live, not to mention the numerous Instagram videos and posts, and of course, your twice daily dose of Web updates right here.

But even with the cluster of the video crew in your face following practically every move, the hands-on crew—which included folks from Brothers Trucks, Painless Performance, FAST, and especially the team from Classic Performance Products (who were there to lend a hand pretty much from start to finish)—was able to get each of the daily tasks handled. And though the week was not without its various setbacks, Classic Trucks' goal of laying rubber to close out day five of the build was met, and with only a few minutes to spare!

We'd officially like to thank the following companies for their generous support and the products that help make the C10 transformation:
