There will be plenty of excitement in the globe of vintage pickup trucks later this week when a specialty auction takes place in Palm Beach. Among the plethora of vehicles up for auction, we’ve selected some standout examples to showcase.

First up is a Chevrolet C20 transformed to resemble a C10 a feat that, while seemingly straightforward given the similarities between the two models, is not always executed as intended.

Both the C10 and C20 are revered members of Chevrolet’s esteemed C/K lineup, spanning from 1959 to 2000. The key distinction lies in payload capacity, with the C10 classified as a half-ton and the C20 as a three-quarter-ton truck.

Modern enhancements include LED dual chrome mirrors and 20-inch Ridler wheels, seamlessly blending classic aesthetics with contemporary flair. Inside, the black and tan interior features upgraded materials, with a RetroSound Bluetooth sound system and Dakota Digital gauges adorning the dashboard.

Under the hood, a remanufactured 6.0-liter GM engine, equipped with LS3 components, powers the truck. Paired with a Mad Dog automatic transmission and a Flowmaster exhaust system, this setup promises exhilarating performance.

The suspension system boasts tubular control arms, sway bars, and Classic Performance Products coilovers, ensuring a smooth ride. Wilwood braking hardware provides reliable stopping power on all four wheels.

Offered by Barrett-Jackson at auction in Palm Beach with no reserve, this meticulously restored Chevrolet C20 turned C10 exemplifies the timeless appeal of classic pickup trucks.
