We recently brought you an in-depth look at the 1967 Chevrolet C10 pickup from the Chevrolet Performance fleet. This year, it made the rounds on the HOT ROD Power Tour with a ZZ6 EFI crate engine* under the hood.
One of the most popular vehicles throughout last year’s HOT ROD Power Tour was the Chevrolet Performance fleet’s 1967 C10 pickup. It wasn’t just the truck’s stunning looks that turned heads though, as the ZZ6 Turn-Key crate engine* under the hood also drew plenty of attention.
Earlier this week, we took a look at the 1973 Chevelle Laguna from the Chevrolet Performance fleet and the 755-horsepower LT5 crate engine* that powers it.
Welcome to Flashback Friday, also known as #FBF. This is where we revisit the very best articles from years past that are still relevant. We’ll show off some old favorites such as feature cars, racing coverage or even new part releases. We comb through our archives and if we say something along the lines of, “Wow. That was a great story.” there’s a good chance it will make its way into our #FBF series. This week, we take a look at Roberto Berdiel’s 1963 Grand Sport Tribute, built by Superformance. We met Roberto on the 2017 HOT ROD Power Tour (HRPT) and his car still stands out as one of our favorite features we did this year. Keep scrolling and you’ll see why. Also, make sure to watch the video we made with Roberto on the HRPT to hear the LS376/525 crate engine roar.
One of the most popular and stunning builds in the Chevrolet Performance fleet is its striking Centennial Blue 1967 C10. The truck was originally unveiled during the 2017 SEMA Show to celebrate a century of Chevy Trucks. Now, it is making the rounds on HOT ROD Power Tour with a ZZ6 EFI crate engine*.
HOT ROD Power Tour is special. It’s not just the cars, or the driving, or the seven cities visited in seven days. Each of those would certainly be worthy of the trip in their own right. But what makes Power Tour a yearly pilgrimage for so many is the people. Over and over again, that sentiment is echoed throughout the week by folks from all walks of life, who make their living in so many different ways all over the country.
Among the many stunning Chevrolet Performance fleet vehicles making the long haul on this year’s HOT ROD Power Tour is one celebrating its 30th anniversary. Yet while the 1988 Monte Carlo SS is a blast from the past, it’s outfitted with all the modern amenities to perform in the future.
Last fall, Chevrolet Performance unveiled the powerful LT5 crate engine* at the SEMA Show and stuffed it in a 1973 Chevelle Laguna Concept. This year, that car and its “blacked-out” look are a central part of HOT ROD Power Tour.
Every vehicle on HOT ROD Power Tour has a story. Mike Appio’s 1966 Chevrolet Chevelle Malibu is both a piece of nostalgia and a tribute to his late stepfather.
During the Martinsville Speedway stop of this year’s HOT ROD Power Tour we met Jason Kempf and Jonathan Rogers. The two are lifelong friends and diehard car guys who were making their first Power Tour trip. They did so with their 1971 Nova SS powered by a Chevrolet Performance Ram Jet 502 crate engine.*
