Top 5 Coolest Lifted and Lowered Classic Chevy Trucks
We put together a list of the baddest built, 50s-60s trucks Truckin Magazine has ever featured
Ask anyone in the truck scene and you’ll find out quickly that the truck building culture is more than meets the eye. Whether it’s classic or late-model trucks, it encompasses the lifted, the lowered and everything in between. For some, raising or lowering a truck can be a sin. Of course, most builders and owners satisfy builds with the style of their choosing. After all, that’s what makes this culture so diversified. If you’re a die-hard truck owner who can’t stand one or the other, this list probably isn’t for you. However, if you’re into celebrating all different types of truck builds, well, we have exactly what you’re into in the list below. While we’ve got plenty of new Truckin Magazine content online, we decided what better way to celebrate both styles of trucks in one complete list in no specific order. Below, you’ll find the Top 5 coolest lifted and lowered Classic Chevy Trucks to ever grace the pages of Truckin Magazine. We’ve made sure to cover the gamut, including everything from a lifted 1966 Chevy K10 with a Duramax Diesel swap, all the way to a bread and butter, LS-powered, 1963 Chevy C10 sitting on a set of 22-inch wheels. Can you dig it?
Into the classic 60s era trucks? Even more rare are the 4x4 models. Matt Hughes was a fan and tracked this one down from Texas. It’s been completely restored with a Duramax Diesel engine. To see more of this truck, make sure to follow through by clicking on the year and make of this truck above!
From lifted to lowered, here’s another featured favorite in the form of this 1963 Chevy C10. Probably the most desired of the Chevy trucks from this era, Brian Ellison made this one a winner. Under the hood sits a supercharged LS engine with 7lbs of boost. Hanging off each corner are Wilwood brakes and a staggered set of 20x10-inch wheels up front and 22x10-inch wheels out back – wow!
It’s not often you see a built C10 that’s ready for the show scene with an owner willing to thrash on it either. However, that’s exactly what we found with Jason Chandler’s ’66. Custom suspension, with late-model LQ9 power, how could you go wrong? Want more? Click on the link in the title to see the full feature.
With a tilt front end hiding a supercharged 427ci big-block Chevy, geez, where do we begin? We’re always up for something new and different, so we couldn’t help but add this lifted Apache to our Top 5 list. With bed rails molded, door handles shaved, custom roll pan added and an interior fit for a King, this is just a small taste of what’s to see in this feature truck. Make sure to click ahead at the full feature.
It’s difficult not to get worked up over an early 50s truck. Those fenders, that rear window, that grille are all dead giveaways to a classic Chevy truck. This example is no exception. Wilwood brakes, 22-inch wheels and GM 502ci big-block Chevy thumping under the hood. The paint? Smooth as glass.
