CPP & Classic Trucks: Week to Wicked!


WHAT IS WEEK TO WICKED?

Classic Trucks Magazine rises to the challenge of taking a stock long bed 1970 Chevy C20 pickup truck and turning it into a canyon carving short bed over a period of seven days! Be sure to follow coverage all week long as the crew from Classic Performance Products Inc. (CPP) assists the Classic Trucks Tech Center, and watch the laggard long bed transform over the seven day thrash for the makeover of the century!

CONVERTING A LONG-BED HAULER TO A PRO-TOURING SHORT-BED IN A WEEK


Day 1

THE COUNTDOWN BEGINS!

Day one kicked off to a great start as the crew transformed the long bed into a shorty and prepared the C10 for its all new CPP steering, brakes and suspension, and even made way for the LS7 powered drivetrain.



Day 2

PRO-TOURING SUSPENSION, BRAKES, AND AN LS7!

We have functioning front and rear suspension including CPP Big Brakes, shocks, sway bars and panhard bar along with a fresh rearend. Now to plumb the C20/C10 conversion with fuel delivery and Hydrastop hydraulic assist.



Day 3

DRIVETRAIN WRAP-UP AND NEW WHEELS

The LS7 drivetrain is planted, now time to tie in the complete chassis wiring harness, configure computer control modules, and connect the fuel supply system. 18” wheels/tires arrive with hopes of getting the truck ready to roll.



Day 4

CABIN, COOLING, AND WIRING CONNECTIONS

The clock ticks away as the crew installs the radiator, air intake, and driveshaft, as the chassis wiring harness gets it’s final connections. New interior makes it’s way into the cabin, but there’s plenty more left on the plate after Day four.




Day 5

DIALING IN THE DETAILS

Day Five is filled with dialing in the details as the brakes get bled, gauges go in, steering column completed, 18’s torqued, fuel tank topped, hood hinged, and short-bed bolted on. The keys are ready to turn, and tires ready to burn!
