Lifted 1972 Chevy K10 show truck

Change the BIG wheels, front end and maybe the interior and I'd be all over it

I'm with you. Thats awesome!

Personally I can't stand it when tires look huge donuts rapped around a brake drum. Right now im trying to decide between 22's with 38's /20's w 38's or 22's w.40's. Anything less then a 20 just isnt an option for me when the tire is over 35".

Re: Lifted 1972 Chevy K10 show truck

I'm with Joe67, those wheels have to go. Waaay to big and ugly on top of it. A 4x4 is supposed to have some sidewall on it. Otherwise, a beautiful truck indeed!!!

Re: Lifted 1972 Chevy K10 show truck

Geeeeeeeeee...in my old age I would need a lift to get inside that truck. Thats why I have a lowered truck. Wait till you young guys get old and bald like me...you all will need a step ladder too. By the way...that is a nice truck.

Re: Lifted 1972 Chevy K10 show truck

That`s a nice truck.
I`m not hatin` the large frail looking rims with less sidewall look.It`s just that it makes no sense on a 4wd.It takes away from the added function added by 4wd.Also,for looks,it takes the classic right out of the picture and doesn`t look as muscular.On a 4wd it`s about the rubber and the wheel is just something to mount the tire on.On the street it`s about the wheels.There`s nice looking wheels for these trucks.But,playin`silly games with wheel diameters has no place off the street.Of course a show 4wd is a street truck more than an offroad one.But,even for looks I like to see what would enhance function in nice form on a 4wd.It doesn`t have anything to do with "schools",unless it`s 2wd school vs 4wd school.There are new style rims made in proper diameters for off road to suit everyone`s taste.Guys that like big rims and air bags don`t like the even larger rim donk cars for various reasons.Both styles are new school and street.I think the difference here is street vs offroad.Some street style just doesn`t carry over for offroad where a level of function is key,for actual use or looks.

Are we sure that is a 72? Looks like the rear view mirror is screwed to the cab roof.

The truck is awesome...

Why the stereo monitor in the passenger door? Playing the radio from the ground?

I don't think the owner was going for a stock look

Re: Lifted 1972 Chevy K10 show truck

I guess I am a old fart but I like the factory look. But I really have to appreciate the amount of work that someone put into this truck. I think its awsome its just not my style.

Re: Lifted 1972 Chevy K10 show truck

Nice truck!
The wheels aren't that bad and if you read the article they are off road tires or half & half really. I think it shows what money can do for one of our trucks. I wish I could send mine out and say here do this to it, don't cut no corners and money isn't a concern send me the bill when done!
