1969 Chevrolet C10 LS Swap

Powered by a 5.3-liter LS, badass 1969 Chevy C10 pickup is sure to pack a yell as powerful as its engine.

If you’re looking to breathe some new life into your classic Chevy pickup, there’s a few ways to go. You can repair and replace body panels, then paint them however you want. You can reupholster the bench seat and add a set of new gauges. And, of course, you can chuck the old boat anchor for an LS injection.

All of that was what we found the other day on Craigslist with this 1969 Chevy C10 pickup in satin black, currently hanging out in the small town of Moorpark, California, 40 miles to the northwest of Los Angeles.

The short bed C10 packs as much punch as the seller’s caps lock control, as it’s powered by a 5.3-liter LS V8 linked to a 4L60E automatic and a 12-bolt posi with 3.73 gears. The setup is also super-fresh, with only 1,000 miles on the odometer.


The outside looks as menacing as the C10 now feels, wearing a nice coat of custom satin black paint over a set of 20-inch satin black wheels mounted upon a set of Baer brakes. The whole thing is lowered for extra aggression.

The inside of the LS-swapped C10 is a nice place to be, with a set of black leather buckets ready to greet you and a friend. There’s also a mystery console box between the two seats, as well as a chrome steering wheel wrapped in black leather placed in front of a set of green-lit black gauges.

The C10 is ready to hit the quarter-mile with its new owner, who will have one hell of a ride to take on all challengers wherever they go.
