RideTech's 48-Hour C10 Build

RideTech’s live 48-Hour C10 Build has started, and it's going to be an unprecedented achievement! Never before has a collector vehicle been built live, at auction, prior to its own sale; it’s a high-pressure goal with millions watching in-person, on TV, and across the internet. Adding to the excitement is the fact that the completed 48-Hour C10 will sell at No Reserve! So if you’re lucky, maybe you could be the highest bidder!

RideTech is building out an existing 1968 GMC C10 truck throughout the duration of the 2017 Barrett-Jackson auction (January 14-22), in Scottsdale, AZ, and will transform it into a complete, upgraded version to send over the auction block for sale, on the final day of the auction. The RideTech 48-Hour Build will be part of the new Barrett-Jackson Do-It-Yourself (DIY) Pavilion, where select automotive companies will present hands-on demonstrations and exhibitions on a variety of projects to be conducted in real time.

The base truck is a restored vehicle that will be upgraded with Forgeline ML3C wheels, BFGoodrich tires, Baer Brakes, Fitech EFI, No Limit Engineering fuel tank, Currie crate rear end, Vintage Air air conditioning, Classic Instruments gauges, a Kicker stereo system, C&R radiator, American Autowire wiring – and, of course, a new RideTech StreetGrip suspension. The completed Pro-Touring-style truck will then be auctioned to the highest bidder on Sunday, January 22, at the 2017 Barrett-Jackson Scottsdale Auction.

“After demonstrating the concept of building a fun and reliable hot rod in 48 hours since 2011, we wanted to expose this success to an even larger audience,” commented RideTech President Bret Voelkel. “We thought there was no better place to do it than at the largest automotive lifestyle event in the world, Barrett-Jackson Scottsdale!”

This truck will be sold as lot number 7005, and will hit the auction block at approximately 4:00pm MST (6:00pm EST) on Sunday, January 22, 2017!

If you're lucky enough to attend the 2017 Barrett-Jackson auction, then you can watch the build happen in person at the DIY Pavilion, located near the staging lanes outside the auction arena. If you're not attending, you still need not miss out; you can tune in and watch it live at:
