Classic pickup trucks are quickly becoming a hot commodity, and Chevrolet's C/K series from the late 1960s is among the hottest. Even if the automaker wasn’t currently celebrating 100 years of pickup trucks, a 1967 C-10 restomod at SEMA would be a welcome sight. Since next year does mark the aforementioned milestone, however, this particular truck is extra awesome.

Thus far, Chevrolet has been very mum on exactly how this truck puts the mod in restomod, telling us only that it will be at the Texas State Fair and SEMA. We can see it’s finished in the same Centennial Blue paint that adorns the special-edition Silverado and Colorado anniversary models, and it wears the same heritage-themed bowtie badge as well. It’s riding on chrome 20-inch wheels wrapped with Pirelli P-Zero rubber, and its braking system has been upgraded with discs front and rear. Though we can't see exactly what's going on with the suspension, we’re fairly confident the truck’s delicious stance is the result of some not-insignificant tuning there as well.

As for power, we can only speculate though dual turn-down exhaust tips at the rear suggest there’s something of at least modest horsepower under the hood. The P-Zeroes are some serious rubber, but since they’re not steam-roller width we’d guess it’s set up to be a good cruiser as opposed to a horsepower hero.

There are certainly many iconic trucks Chevrolet could’ve chosen for a special anniversary makeover. The 1955 Cameo comes to mind, or perhaps something from the mid-to-late1970s – an era which is quickly becoming favored by collectors. Aside from its much-loved design, however, math nerds will be quick to point out that the 1967 model year falls exactly halfway through Chevrolet’s 100-year truck history. That's a neat little trick.

We await more details on this sharp looking pickup, and will pass them on as soon as they’re available.
