I own a last production year brazilian crew cab Chevrolet C10, the truck itself looks decent and is quite exclusive, since they’ve built so few crew cab models (i only seen mine in person and like 5 others around the web), but i think i can make it look better by backdating the front clip.
In theory it shouldn’t work, right? But remember, this is a brazilian C10, they kept the same chassis and body models from '60s all the way into the '80s, so the facelifted trucks from 1978 up until 1984 look like this, with a hideous plastic grile and “tall hood”:
(this is my actual truck)
But the models from 1970 up until 1977 look much better, with a chrome grille and a “short hood”:
(this is my friend’s truck)
The mod is as simple as bolting a different hood and grile on it, as well as chroming the bumpers, the rear end hasn’t changed so that makes the whole operation even less complicated.
So, do you guys think i should do this mod or should i keep it original?
