Brett Deutsch’s Diesel-Powered C10 Pickup Runs New Personal Best

One of the hottest trends in old school custom trucks right now is modifying the iconic Chevy C-10 pickup. These trucks were some of the first work trucks used by farmers, but now they’re being chopped, lowered, being driveline swapped, and in some cases even seeing track time. Brett Deutsch’s eight-second 1969 Chevrolet C10 is a mixture of show truck, driveline swap, and track monster that sports three turbos — yes, three! — and, of all things, a Duramax diesel powerplant under the hood.

Deutsch’s C10 does battle in the NHRDA (National Hot Rod Diesel Association) Pro Street division and is always a contender, running deep into the eight-second range. The classic Chevy’s Duramax bullet is filled with Carrillo Rods and Mahle Motorsports pistons to help support all the power it puts down. Boost comes from three Bullseye Performance snails and that helps push the power well above the 1,000-horse mark.

At Illinois’ Byron Dragway, Deutsch decided to show the gains he’s made this year and uncorked a new personal best with the C10. The footage from VictoryRedColorado shows just how rowdy this coal rolling classic is at the track. Deutsch’s ride looks and sounds more like a dragon than a truck as he builds boost and bumps into the beams. When the tree drops the pickup literally roars down the track at a shockingly quick pace on its way to an impressive 8.62 at over 161 mph.

The hefty 4,500 lb. monster turns an impressive 1.38 sixty-foot and rockets to the eighth-mile in 5.60 seconds. No matter how you look at it, getting something that big to move that quick is pretty badass.
