FRESH RESTO, HOUNDSTOOTH BUCKETS, PS, PB, TILT, HEAVILY DOCUMENTED, MUST SEE!
Trucks don't get much better looking than this 1970 Chevrolet C10. While once regarded as little more than tools, this one is proof that they also make wonderful hobby vehicles that look great and deliver practical performance. This beautifully done pickup features a built 350 under the hood and a wonderful bucket seat interior that's a big step up over the original.
We sell a lot of these trucks, and there's no sign of that trend slowing down. It's easy to see why, because these trucks seem to combine a vintage look with square-jawed ruggedness that's pretty hard to beat. On this C10, the bodywork was redone in orange, so there's no point in trying to be subtle, but the workmanship is so good, you'll be happy to show off. It's a very stock restoration, nothing has been shaved or deleted, which only shows you how great the original design really was. The all-steel body is in excellent condition with a fairly sizable investment in bodywork and paint, but the results are worth whatever it cost. All the original trim was freshened, including the stainless strips that stretch the length of the body and a blacked-out grille cleans up the nose. The bed is so nice that you probably won't use it as a work truck, but that super straight steel also suggests that nobody else has, either. It's just too straight and clean.
The cool houndstooth interior combines the best of the original design with some Camaro DNA to create a unique driving environment. Bucket seats are the biggest upgrade, but there's also a center console with locking storage and a pair of cup holders borrowed from a late-model pickup and put to great use here. The door panels were upholstered to match the seats, which helps soften the truck's working-class roots. The original gauges are some of the most handsome ever installed in a pickup, and while they only cover the basics, they look great doing it. Other upgrades include factory A/C, a tilt column, power steering and brakes, plus the original AM radio in the middle of the dash. Black carpets look great and help control noise and heat inside the cab.
A rebuilt 350 cubic inch V8 rumbles under the hood, and by sticking pretty much to the factory specs, it looks highly correct. There's a big Edelbrock 4-barrel living atop a matching intake, and aluminum valve covers, but otherwise it feels like it might have in 1970. Recent work includes a recent master cylinder, a fresh alternator, and new belts and hoses, so you can drive it immediately without a lot of extra work. The transmission is a TH350 3-speed automatic driving a 12-bolt rear end, so the drivetrain on this truck is virtually bulletproof. The suspension was rebuilt and offers fresh springs and shocks for a new truck ride, and the dual exhaust system with glasspack-style mufflers adds a lot of fun to your daily commute. Extra wide Rally wheels with 275/60/15 white-letter radials really fill out the wheel wells and give it an aggressive look.
It's obvious that this truck was a cherished toy and not simply a workhorse. Nicely finished inside and out, it presents quite well even though it's mostly stock. It also runs exceptionally well and will continue to turn heads for years to come. Call now!
