Lift the hood and the truck gets modern fast. That’s a new Chevy LS3 6.2L Camaro engine under there, waiting to carry the C10 down the road. The engine is backed up properly by a new 6L80 transmission.

C-Fin Custom 1972 Chevy C10

Intro wheels, measuring a gigantic 24×15 and 24×10 with low profile meats pack the wheel openings—that rolling stock combo would’ve blown folks away in the Seventies or the Fifties, just like it blows people away today at the SEMA Show. Arnold used Axalta paint to finish the truck in Grabber Blue.

The cab interior, built by Arnold, is up-to-date too. That ’59 dash that started it all is packed with Dakota Digital gauges. A Billet Specialties wheel tops an ididit tilt column. Eli’s Easy Trim covered the Procar by SCAT bucket seats. Vintage Air A/C, and power windows and door locks, are modern conveniences. “C-Fin” as the truck is called, was a seven-month build, finished at the end of the summer. Justin Arnold told us he’d never built a vehicle to the level of this 1972 Chevy before, nor displayed on at a show the level of the SEMA Show.
