(1968 Chevy C-10)
The Orange 1968 Chevy C10 is a true American classic, and Kelsey Nester’s “Orange Crush” is a stunning example of this iconic truck. The truck was bought by Kelsey’s great uncle 20 years ago, and Kelsey took it upon herself to restore it to its former glory.
The build process took five long years and cost $15,000, but the end result was well worth the effort. The truck’s original cost was $7,500, and Kelsey’s great uncle used it as a daily driver. Kelsey’s inspiration for the restoration was the sentimental value of the truck, as it was originally built by her great uncle.
Under the hood, the Orange Crush is powered by a Chevy 1970 engine with eight cylinders and a displacement of 355. The driveline includes a 9” Ford axle and 355 gears. The truck’s chassis has been dropped five inches in the back and four inches in the front, giving it a sleek and lowered look. The wheels are 20-inch Ridlers, with the same size in the front and rear. The paint is a stunning orange color, with graphics by the name of “Orange Crush.”
The Orange Crush is a true head-turner, with its vibrant color and sleek design. It’s not just a show truck either, as Kelsey’s future plans for the truck include driving it and doing burnouts. The truck has a rich history and has been in the family for over two decades, making it a cherished possession.
This 1968 Chevy C-10 is a great example of the timeless beauty of classic American trucks. Its restoration is a testament to the value of preserving the past and appreciating the craftsmanship of older vehicles. Kelsey Nester’s Orange Orange 1968 Chevy C10 is a truck that will undoubtedly turn heads and inspire others to restore classic vehicles to their former glory.
