(1968 Chevy C10)
The 1968 Chevy C10 owned by Josh and Alexis Spicer is one of the most stunning custom trucks you will ever come across. Built by the talented team at The Custom Shop in Flanagan, IL, this C10 is named “C/Tanium” due to its gorgeous Titanium Pearl color. This beautiful truck boasts some of the most incredible modifications you will ever see on a C10, making it stand out from the rest.
Josh Spicer approached John Wargo from The Custom Shop with a unique request – to design and build a custom truck that looks nothing like the C10s that have been built before. John got to work designing and rendering a custom truck that would blow Josh’s mind. Once Josh had a cab and chassis, the team at The Custom Shop stripped it down to bare metal and found that it had a lot of rust and some older repairs that were not done well. So, they ordered new sheet metal from Good Mark and began the mods.
The body mods on this C10 are absolutely breathtaking. The team shaved everything, including drip rails, flush glass, kindig door handles, and even the bed pockets. They stretched the bed and tightened every gap that it had, and fabricated a custom ZL1-inspired hood scoop. The ground effects were custom-made and included matching copper carbon, molded in flairs, and mounts. Z06-styled side scoops were molded into the bed, and the inside of the bed was made using billet stripes and more copper carbon to create a custom bed floor that motorizes up to expose the custom frame. The frame boasts a custom four-link watts link system and Mitler Bros hydroshox with about six inches of adjustment, all coated with Prizmatic Bronze satin powder.
Under the hood, this C10 is powered by a GM LS3 2020 engine that has been pro-charged with a P1X and Hedman Hedders. The engine is also equipped with a Spectra Performance air filter. The custom one-off rear diffuser and Pypes stainless exhaust with cutouts and a custom tip in the rear run out of the diffuser.
The interior of this C10 is just as stunning as the exterior. The dashboard is a Dakota Digital gauge cluster and a Vintage Air a/c unit that totally changed the dash pad. A Sony 10″ touch screen is flushed into the dash, and the newest Sony ES speakers are in the doors. The custom pods house a digital Dakota gauge cluster and a Vintage Air a/c unit that totally change the dash pad. The doors hold two 6.5″ Sep. and the crossover the tweeters are in the dash. The kick panels hold a 6×9 coax Sony ES, and the center console is a stack fabbed sealed box with two 10″ ES subs. Behind the seats are four Sony amps, two GS4 and two GS100 amps all run with T-Spec wiring and connections.
The exterior is painted in ProSpray Titanium Metallic paint that has been faded from seven colors from silver to root beer top to bottom. John Wargo from The Custom Shop added ghosted checkered flags and even a C10 silhouette that are hidden on the truck. John then clear-coated it with 850 ProSpray clear coat and sanded and buffed it to a show finish with Presta compounds. The Custom Shop has delivered a show-stopping, eye-popping SEMA show car that is sure to turn heads.
In conclusion, the 1968 Chevy C10 owned by Josh and Alexis Spicer is a showstopper that was built to stand out from the rest. With its custom mods and stunning paint job, this C10 is sure to be a hit on the show scene. Thanks to The Custom Shop and their sponsors, this C10
