1963 Chevrolet C10 became a SEMA Award winner, it is now going under the hammer

There are so many custom Chevrolet C10 pickup trucks that you have to be really special to get our attention. In the case of the one here, the special bits about it say the ride is a TV show star and a SEMA award winner.

There are a lot of car-related TV shows, so chances are you don’t know them all. However, if you are a fan of “highly qualified craftsmen who build custom hot rods, street rods, motorcycles and trucks,” then a show called Wrench’D might ring a bell.

The show premiered in 2018 and so far only had two seasons of six episodes each, but managed to impress every now and then thanks to some truly incredible builds. And some of them impressed not only the viewers, but also the audience attending specialized shows such as SEMA.

It’s there where the Wrench’D crew of Justin Nichols, Maegan Ashline and Nick Roberts presented the 1963 Chevrolet C10 you’re staring at now. It became an instant show favorite and managed to snag a SEMA award.

It’s unclear what exactly that award was, as the truck’s current owner, who is selling it at an upcoming auction in Florida, is not saying. They do say a lot about the C10 so we get a good idea of ​​what we can expect.

The truck is a first-generation example that focuses on a deep black look with custom pinstripes and a powerful engine under the hood. The interior is finished in a perfectly contrasting beige and has all the hallmarks of a true, modern, custom build: a Lokar shifter, Vintage Air and Dakota gauges.

The truck rests on special Billet wheels of unknown dimensions that run on the power of a 5.3-liter V8 engine of the LS variant. The powerplant is mated to an automatic transmission and braking power comes from Wilwood braking hardware.

The body of the C10 has only been slightly modified. Up front, the crew behind the project installed a custom grille that gives the truck a new face, while the other end holds the bed, enclosed by a tailgate with a hidden latch and custom hinges. The distance between the body and the ground decreases as soon as the AccuAir system is turned on.

The 1963 Chevrolet C10, customized by the Wrench’D crew, will go under the hammer on July 13 at Mecum auction house in Kissimmee. There’s no mention of how much the owner expects to get for it, but the truck appears to. come with a reserve. One that is not made public.

For reference, a perfect 1963 C10 is estimated by appraisal specialist Hagerty to be worth almost $60,000.
