BLUE BEAST

TACKLING TRAILS IN A CUMMINS-POWERED ‘70 C10

We have to say that a Cummins-powered C10 has been a truck we’ve been dreaming about for quite some time. Admittedly, we’re a little jealous that young gun Darren Sammartino Jr. has one. But, as you’ll ind out, he’s a pretty deserving guy.

“When I was a kid, I loved anything that I could take apart, learn how it works and then make it better,” says Darren. “I went from Legos to dirt bikes to trucks. In fact, my irst truck was a C10, which I still have!”

SENTIMENTAL VALUE

The ‘70 Chevy you see on these pages really was Darren’s irst truck, and years of hard work and motivation resulted in a ride that combines classic looks with Cummins power.

Darren knew he wanted a diesel swap, so one of the irst things he did was beef up the suspension for the 1,100-pound heft of the Cummins engine. This meant custom spring-rate leaf springs from Carrier Suspension to compensate for the weight of the engine and 1-ton axles. Offroad Design supplied greaseable front shackles and a lip kit, Fox Racing Shocks provided the shocks and air bumps, and Chassis Unlimited heavy-duty traction bars were itted to the truck.
