Rod Phillips said that when he was a young boy he was interested in cars and judged them according to their visual traits. Therefore, when he became a government certified automobile operator he decided to make a car that will have an incredibly great appearance. The internal traits came second. Rod Phillips made a 1969 Chevrolet C10 so good that the car is not present in almost every car show.
In order to give the C10 a good and sensational look, Rob decided to change lot things about the car including locks, rain gutter, pocket holes, marker lights and door handles. The wheels were substituted with Leccara wheels. However, Rob did not change only the external appearance of the car. He also changed the interior making it far more luxurious and adding air conditioning, something that cars produced in the 1960s and 1970s never dreamt of.

The dash is now extremely good-looking. As far as the engine is concerned, the car features 468 Chevy big block engine able to produce power of 640 hp and torque of 690 ft-lbs. Then there is also Edelbrock hydraulic roller cam, Edelbrock Victor Jr. manifold and EFL multi port fuel injection. This kind of equipment produces a lot of power and it should be cooled down. Therefore, Rob incorporated a cool aluminum radiator with a very innovative and distinctive cap.
Everything changed with the invitation for Rob to take part in Pro Touring that was happening at the same time as the show.
There he raced with another C10 truck that was hundred times better. Afterwards, Rob did the research and understood the problem lied in the suspension. So, he started to work on that problem and incorporated new elements, such as front and rear shock relocates, new control arms and a track bar kit.
In order to make this car even more perfect, Rob included an AGR quick ratio steering box and BAER brakes with 6 pistons as part of its equipment.
Only the interior should have been a bit more adjusted to make the car more complete. So Rob added a fire extinguisher, belts and Daytona bucket seats. In the end, Rob is satisfied with the vehicle he made because above all, it looks just like he wants it to look.
