For decades, hot-rodders have been cranking out some killer builds using the ’67-72 C10 as the foundation of their canvas. From lifted trucks, to corner carvers and everything in between, these once budget-friendly pickups are now at the epicenter of LS and GEN-V LT swaps.
Holley has used their own ’67 C10 as a testbed for their LS swap line for nearly a decade already, but they’re still updating, adding and tweaking things to offer car peeps like us the latest and greatest. Just the other day, the release below slid across our desks and we just had to share with all of you.
LS Swapping Your 67-72 C10 Has Never Been Easier with Holley!
Holley is pleased to announce the release of new LS swap components for 1967-1972 Chevy C10 Pickups – Hooker Blackheart has released a full lineup of parts for 1967-72 C10 Pickups allowing for a bolt-in LS swap conversion! The new engine mounts will replace your existing stools and allow for use of OE 4th-gen F-body LS engine mounts.
Meanwhile, three new transmission crossmembers are available to install a variety of automatic and manual transmissions. Blackheart engineers finished this swap kit off with a selection of stainless long-tube headers and complete exhaust systems making your truck look as nice underneath as it does on top!
Hooker BlackHeart application-specific LS/LT swap engine mounting brackets remove the installation guesswork and compatibility uncertainty that comes with using universal/adjustable swap plates. These brackets are designed for 1967-1972 GM C10 pick-ups to achieve optimized component clearances and drivetrain/U-joint operation angles when used in conjunction with 71222024HKR transmission crossmember and Hooker BlackHeart long-tube headers and dual exhaust systems co-developed for this application.
NOTE: Designed for use with Narrow Frame-rails.
