All the stainless and chrome trim was likewise left original; what's the point of restoring that stuff and putting it on top of that aged paint

1967 Chevrolet Truck 
There's modern tech under the hood in the form of a burly 6.0 liter Vortec V8. Based on the LS1, it's lighter, more powerful, and more efficient than the usual small block V8 and thanks to the wonders of fuel injection, it starts instantly, idles smoothly, and makes prodigious torque at any speed. The color-matched engine cover makes it look like it was born there, and obviously patina wasn't the order of the day when the engine bay was going together. There's fresh orange paint on the custom firewall and inner fenders, and the rest is all polished. A big aluminum radiator keeps the LS cool and there's a new power master cylinder for the brand new front disc brakes. 

The interior, however, has received a full makeover, complete with beautifully stitched black seat covers with orange piping. Matching carpets and door panels tie it all together, and you'll note that even inside

The undercarriage is tidy, again with some patina but no issues, and the modifications for the air bag suspension were neatly done to preserve original hardware wherever possible. The stance is perfect and the rumble through the straight pipes isn't to be missed. 20-inch Torque Thrust wheels help with the contrasting look and carry 255/35/20 front and 275/40/20 rear Toyo performance radials.
