Stop, whatever you are doing. Stay still, stay silent, point your ears in the direction of central Texas, and listen for a minute. Do you hear that? The noise that sounds like a wild howl on the wind? Yeah…that’s Chad the moment he realizes that this beauty is actually up for auction. Our resident square-body freak is going to be dropping bricks by the pallet load once he realizes that the River City Rods’ “Brown Sugar” camper Chevy could potentially become somebody’s new pride and joy. Without a doubt, the 1983 Chevrolet C30 camper was the jaw-dropper outside of the Convention Center, laid low and wearing colors and stripes that haven’t been fashionable since right about the day I was born. Without a doubt, the bearded one would consider ditching half of his beard if it meant he got to bring this thing home.
What’s the run-down? Simple: 5.3L swap, automatic, and just about every visual modification you can do to a square-body without messing with what makes them good. It’s slammed on it’s nuts. It’s on air. It’s got Vintage Air, it’s got an interior that would shame a brand-new square-body, any year, if you could find one brand-new. It’s plumbed with a toilet, has tanks and valves, and is fully functional. You could legitimately drive this beauty anywhere, though I can already hear some cringing over the idea of taking this caramel-hued beauty out on the open road for anything other than a Power Tour run. I figure if you aren’t out enjoying shows and races from the comfort of a gorgeously crafted RV you own, you’re doing something wrong, and tell me that you wouldn’t sleep in this Chevy while out on the road.
C’mon, winning lottery ticket…Daddy needs a new ride for live-streaming season!
