While this 1965 Chevy C10 may look pretty docile, with a 1,200-hp supercharged methanol injected 454 LSX lurking under that patina finish, it’ll eat up most anything on the street.

The pros at Roadster Shop in Mundelein, Illinois, posted a video detailing the heavily modified build which was displayed at SEMA last fall.

Some of the coolest touches include the vintage Dr. Pepper cooler and Midwest lightning bolt ‘Gasoline’ can in the bed. The cooler houses the methanol (pictures posted below).

Fair warning…once you start watching Roadster’s video, it’s pretty hard to stop. Even the welds on this custom frame are hypnotic. And while we’re intrigued with the Rasta meets Pink Floyd soundtrack, we’d rather hear that 454 roar. Maybe next time.
