Default 67 Cee Ten By Speedtech

Hey All-

Check out what's on the table at Speedtech Performance! Reminiscent of the beautiful southern Utah sunset, this hot new project will bring a sense of awe to all who stick around to watch it.



We've been hankerin' for a hauler for some time now, we needed a good excuse to develop some new suspension parts for the 67-72 C10 crowd. Well this little p'up wandered into the shop lookin' like it had a pretty tough life. It's got quite a history, we'd tell you but we really don't know what it is, lol. Needless to say, there wasn't one matching color panel, it was missing half it's parts, it had rust all over and it looked so bad it would run and hide every time a camera came out. I barely got this first shot while it was hiding behind the paint booth.



After hiding in the corner of the shop for several months the stars aligned and the truck came out with a pretty serious game plan. Instead of simply adapting our suspension to it's battered frame we decided to start fresh. So along with this build will come one of the first of Speedtech's new line of full frame products! These frames will offer super low stance, proprietary front suspension geometry based on our ATS tall spindle, a little bit of a straying away from the norm out back, and some subtle body mods to create a look that hasn't been seen before. This is a side project being built for us to play around with so follow along over the next few months as it all comes together.

The parts list is a long one, starting out with a complete new bed, tailgate, doors, fenders, hood, floor, rockers, and lower cab corner patch panels. Additional patch panels were hand formed to take car of areas we couldn't order. During the process, the firewall got moved back and smoothed a little, and the drip rails got shaved. Topping off the cab mods will also be flush mount glass and a modified cowl panel. These pics are the start of some very cool things to come...

Thanks Vince, and yes they are. There's some great potential with the right combination.

Us too Streetbird, we're very excited to head in this direction and be able to provide the market with a great new product option.

Thanks guys!

There are already a handful of cool trucks in the g machine community, and we're looking forward to doing our version too. Hopefully it will inspire the movement, right now the thing to do with a truck is set the frame on the ground at the car show. That looks cool but usually those type suspensions aren't practical for much more than normal driving or sitting still in the grass. Our aim is to help the C10 guys realize they can have a low stance and wicked handling. With our frame design it should be about the lowest static stance on the market, so with an air ride the rockers should still hit the ground (or be super close). At normal height it will tear up the autocross track and will still drive nice.
