1965 Chevy C10 Mud Truck
Photographers: Fred Williams

Through the mud, this '65 Chevy C10 truck looks like any other restored classic Chevy truck ready to hit the next show 'n' shine at the local fairgrounds. The body is straight, the side molding is still intact, the windows aren't cracked, and the paint ain't peeling. But look again. This truck was built for muddin' and daily driving, not polishing and ogling over.

Some classic truck aficionados would freak out if their rig was submerged at 30 mph in Pennsylvania goop. But who cares about those guys? Trucks are meant for having fun in the dirt, crawling over rocks, and blasting through mud. That's just what Devon Wolf had in mind when he scavenged the parts off five C10s to build this truck. Like Victor Frankenstein, Devon bolted all the parts together and built a first-rate truck that meets his recreational muddin' and daily drivin' needs.
