Space Rat: 1960 Chevrolet C10 Hot Rod

This must be the most American thing ever featured on these pages.  First, just look at it.  Chevy 350 small block, two turbochargers, automatic, covered in the stars/stripes — and critically, it is unfinished, like our wars in Iraq, Afghanistan…Vietnam, you name it.  Despite how unfinished it might be, it leaves a path of destruction as wide as a football field and as sweet as apple pie. Find this 1960 Chevrolet C10 Hot Rod thing offered for $8,500 in Brunswick, OH via craigslist.

I just don’t know where to begin…mostly because I don’t know where the builder started this thing either. The name C-10 is tossed around, so let’s assume that before it had an 8-ball mounted on a pool cue for a shifter, it was a Chevy C-10 pickup.  

Up front is an all-you-can-eat buffet of 350 small block V8 that is forcefed via two turbochargers and painted red white and blue.  These colors don’t run…unless it gets up to temperature which will be interesting in the current configuration.

The seller does a nice walk around video on the youtube, which is only upstaged in Americana by his video of a dog chewing on a bone.
