Hot rodding trucks has been a thing for more than a half century. Most of the time that means sticking a big engine in and going drag racing, but over the last 10 years or so, that has also meant building trucks like GT cars and making them not only drive well down the highway but perform in a handling environment as well. This video takes us on a detailed tour of the 1972 C10 truck (a long bed!) used by the guys at QA1 to develop their high performance suspension system that bolts onto the 1963-72 generation of GM rigs.
You will love this thing because it’s lots of what you think it is and a few things that will surprise you. Built to be a reliable runner designed to take on events like the Power Tour as well as to run at autocross and performance driving events, this really is a well thought out build that can 100% be replicated by you at home. There is no NASA rocket engineer fabrication here, no exotic parts that aren’t on the shelf, and nothing that any capable gearhead cannot make as good as their own.
This truck rules. How much? Watch and see.
