64 Chevy C10 - LS3 Swap

Zach brought us his patina C10 for a power-train makeover.   After dealing with junk yard motor woes, he opted for a new LS3 Connect & Cruise setup for daily driver reliability.. and much less headache.  We also added air ride, with Accuair eLevel, dual Endo-VT 3 gallon tanks which offer a clean and balanced installation, where a 5 gallon tank would not fit. Ridetech shocks and front control arms, Slam Specialties bags, and CPP trailing arms finish off the suspension.  This is a daily-driver that rides like a Cadillac, has plenty of power, economy, yet feels planted, and glides over imprecations in the road with confidence.
