Photo 2/3 | Radical Renderings Tavis Highlander 01 | JH Restorations is Southern Ontario’s premier build and restoration shop, specializing in ground-up restorations as well as custom projects. This ’67 Chevy C10 longbox will be riding on air, care of an Accuair air management system and a Porterbuilt Fabricaton front and rear Level 3 air suspension controlled by Viking shocks. The truck will ride on 20-inch Budnik E35 wheels and Toyo ST II tires fitted with Yellow lines created by Diamond Back Classic. Stopping will be handled by six-piston, 14-inch Wilwood brakes, both front and rear. Powering this C10 down the road will be a GMPP 460hp LT1 engine backed by a 4L75E transmission and a John’s Industries 9-inch axle with a 4.11 posi gear set. Body modifications will include a 1.5-inch raked and lowered roof with a Fesler Built flush-mount windshield. To keep the illusion of the stock height cab, the vent windows and factory small back window dimensions will be retained. Paint will be the original Light Yellow, but with the ’68 two-tone color code, along with side trim from Mar-K Manufacturing. The ’16 Impala bucket seats will be wrapped in custom leather by Relicate and stitched in a classic ’60s style. The interior paint will also be original to the truck—metallic green to complement the exterior styling. This green paint will now be carried over into the engine compartment as well as the bed area to round out and update the look.
Photo 3/3 | Radical Renderings Tavis Highlander 02 | This Tinworks Fabrication ’73 Suburban project is starting off with a throwback graphics package from Low Sierra Company, along with custom-machined 22-inch semi wheels in a bronze-colored Cerakote. The body is staying fairly stock with the addition of 1-ton dualie fenders and a front roll pan with billet turbo inlets. The motor is a built 12-valve Cummins with compound turbos from BorgWarner that should achieve 700 hp and 1,600 lb-ft through a 47RH automatic transmission. The engine bay will be completely smoothed, including hiding the hydroboost and master cylinder under the dash. Custom sheetmetal inner fenders, radiator cover, and fan shroud are also done in a bronze color to match the wheels. The interior will have a stock feel, with the addition of custom bench seats with plaid inserts, and red diamond stitching. Other mods include a full roll cage with harnesses, two 50gallon Endo CVT tanks from Accuair, and a killer sound system. This truck is going to be driven to every show it attends in 2018, including its debut at LST.
