This 1972 Chevy K10 Was Once A Test Mule For LMC Truck Engineers, Now It's Restored With A 460 HP LT1!
January 19th, 2016
What a great name for a truck! This week on PowerNation Katie features “Miss Fire”, a 1972 Chevy K10. Now the name has nothing to do with engine performance, but you’ll have to tune in for the answer. LMC Truck president and owner Becky Hanrahan joins Katie this week with their latest project, along with builder Nate Boyer from Kultured Customs. What was once a test mule for all the engineers at LMC Truck for 15 years, Becky decided to restore it and once again selected Kultured Customs for the task to showcase all the parts available through the LMC catalog. Yes this truck is a rolling catalog! It does have one thing not found in the catalog - a new Gen-5 LT1 460 horse engine in it. Although the truck is meant to look stock, the hilites are the gorgeous Italian leather interior and the oak bed with burned-in stencils of the LMC logo. The name “Miss Fire” was picked from a contest with 25,000 name submissions. Check it out this week on PowerNation with host Katie Osborne.
