PCHRODS Build : Project C10R

I thought I would start a thread on our latest project, so you guys can see what we are up to. We are builing a C10 truck for the upcoming season, and will hopefully have it ready late summer early fall before it's debut at SEMA 14'. I will get some more build photos up soon. But here is the rendering that Ben Hermance did for us almost 2 years ago. Here is a small little list of what we are doing to it. I look forward to your feedback and comments...good or bad. ​



1967 Chevrolet C-10


- Aluminum LS Engine
- Eddie Motorsports S-Drive Serpentine Belt Kit
- Holley HP EFI Fuel Injection
- BOZE FORGED 3pc "MESH" wheels 18x12
- Tremec T56
- Currie Pro 9" with Locker
-Baer Full Floater Hubs
-Baer 6 Piston Brakes on all 4 corners
-Detroit Speed 595x Front Suspension
-PCHRODS Custom Rear Suspension
-Afco Double Adjustable Coil Overs on all 4 corners
-Cobra Carbon Race Seats
-Shroth Harnesses
-PCHRODS Full Custom Cage
-Magnaflow Custom Stainless Headers and Exhaust
-Ricks Stainless Fuel Cell
-BF Goodrich Tires 335/35/18 on all four corners

Re: PCHRODS Build : Project C10R

Cool ideas just not my style. Reminds me of the 'import' scene. That's what so cool about these trucks is that they are unique to idividual style and there's no right or wrong.

Absolutly...you nailed it. There is no right or wrong. We have had a lot of guys drop the hater card, and it doesn't bother me at all. It's tough building a truck and trying to be different then the next guy. So i decided on this build to go way out in left field where few builders go, jump the fence, keep running til I hit the right idea. I few of my styling concepts on this truck were very "import" inspired from a couple of different italian auto makers. All that aside...i totally respect your view, and honesty. Thanks for the comment. You'd probably like our 69 a little better?

Yes that truck is very nice. I agree its hard to do something original with a truck that's so customized. It will definitely be one off and obviously you have the vision and talent. Sorry for throwing the word 'import' maybe ill look at it more as NASCAR truck styling. Ill tag along for the build

Re: PCHRODS Build : Project C10R

I like most of it. I prefer not to have the wheels tucked in, I want to just see the top of the tire below the fender. The front spoiler is cool, not feeling the back one.

Love the color, and the wheels are perfect for it.

Re: PCHRODS Build : Project C10R

Nice! Looks like a killer autocross machine. The local SCCA club would take years to get the twist out of their knickers that truck would give them!

We plan on doing more big course tracks and higher speed events with this truck. We found on the black and copper truck at
140 mph+ it would start to dance a little. Which makes the back side clinch up some seat material. So we "needed" some aero. The hard part is making it look good on the truck.

The pics are a little deceiving. The truck is not adjusted on the coil overs in these pics. We set it all the way down to verify the 335's would clear everything at the bottom of the suspension cycle. It will be set up at ride height where you will be able to see the sidewall of the topside of the tire. Not much higher but just enough to keep it as low as possible. To keep the center of gravity down low.


Thanks guys for all the great feedback...good bad or in different. I love hearing all different views. Keep it coming.!!!

Re: PCHRODS Build : Project C10R

Looks awesome...I like the deep dish rims.

Where are you guys located in HB? I come down a couple times a year to visit family. It would be cool to stop by your shop. Wish I could drive my 67 stepper down to SoCal.

You have any interior pictures of "Phillips 69"?

Makes sense. Truck looks cool. Im on the fence about the rear spoiler. well actually I hate it but since you are actually racing at high speeds in a truck I can see needing some downforce on the rear end. which makes it ok in my book... since you asked

We are right off the 405 and westminster ave. Stop by next time you're down. I do have some pics let me round them up tommorow.

Gotcha. I know why people want to be that low, but I don't personally like the visual of tucked tires.

I know the rear spoiler has to be there and be functional, and maybe the drawing doesn't show it well enough, but it looks "off". It doesn't quite look like the Nascar ones, which I think is what I would expect to see.

Re: PCHRODS Build : Project C10R

Great truck! If I was doing it, and I had all the time and money I wanted, I'd make the rear spoiler powered. Controllable from the cab. With a rear tonneau cover, make the last 12" or so curves up to the exact shape your see in the rendering. Kind of like the high end supercars do with either computer controls or manual controls. If you're clever enough, you could do the same with the front spoiler. Look stock, or mild custom. Then boom, with the flick of a switch, race ready. Love those wheels. Those are the first wheels I've seen that make me consider something other than standard aluminum or chrome. Can't wait to see it when it's done.

Re: PCHRODS Build : Project C10R

My first thoughts were 'talk about bringing a picture to life'...
Very cool build, love the color combo too.

I like Hawghauler's idea, the supercars have a speed sensor for their wings and I'm sure that can be integrated into your build fairly easily.

So many truck I hope to see in person on these boards and this is definitely one of them!

Re: PCHRODS Build : Project C10R

Active Aero, would be incredible to have unfortunetly the budget doesn't quite demand it. Especially since a full function setup ranges from $5,000-15,000. One of the guys on our circuit runs one on his 68 camaro, and it's pretty amazing what it helps the car do. But for me....gonna have to add it to santa's list.
