FRESH 350 CRATE, BRIGHT RED RESTO, NEW UPHOLSTERY, BEDLINER, PS, PB, DUAL PIPES
You don't often see trucks like this 1969 Chevy C10 pickup finished to this level. Not heavily modified, but almost completely stock and beautifully finished for a more authentic feel. The 350 is a replacement crate motor, so it's a strong runner, and a small fortune was spent on the gorgeous red bodywork.
The bright red paint is quite recent and finished in single-stage paint so it has a proper 1969 look, albeit a lot more vivid than original. The regular cab/short bed combination is the one to own and this particular pickup still carries all its original sheetmetal, including the bed, although a subtle cowl-induction hood was added along the way. It's easy to see how straight this truck really is just by looking at the reflections in its skin and the details were very well executed, and it's also been treated to a thorough wet sand and buff, making the final finish something that you could be proud of at your local cruise in. All the stainless trim, badges, emblems, and chrome bumpers are new, the glass was replaced, and there's new weather stripping throughout so it drives and feels like a new truck. Blue-dot taillights give it an old-fashioned style at night and the twin chrome tailpipes peeking out from underneath are a not-so-subtle reminder that there's considerable performance living up front. The bed has been finished with a protective spray-in bed liner, so you don't have to worry about using it as intended now and again.
Black upholstery is the sensible choice with the bright red bodywork and the new cloth upholstery makes it a lot more comfortable than the original sticky vinyl. Tooled vinyl door panels are a part of the C10's appeal and are in excellent condition and the durable floor coverings are assisted by a set of custom-fitted rubber floor mats. The gauges are some of the most attractive dials ever installed in a utilitarian pickup and their crisp markings and clear lenses suggest that someone spent some time freshening them for this truck. An AM/FM radio in the center of the dash makes for a pleasant travelling companion and the steering wheel would look at home in a vintage Camaro. Everything is new, so it has a uniform, clean, fresh look that will hold up for years to come.
A fresh 350 cubic inch V8 crate motor was dropped in about 800 miles ago and runs superbly. It's not radical or high strung, so it's very user-friendly, and the chrome dress-up pieces make it look great in the otherwise all-black engine bay. Chevy Orange paint on the block reinforces the fact that this is a pretty stock build, and just about everything under the hood is new, including the alternator, power brake booster and master cylinder, and radiator. It's backed by a TH350 3-speed automatic transmission and a heavy-duty 12-bolt rear end that hangs on factory heavy-duty springs. A custom dual exhaust system with Flowmaster mufflers give it a muscular burble at idle and it's quite tidy underneath. Wide Rally wheels wearing 275/60/15 white-letter radials add an aggressive stance that still fits the factory look.
This is a really nice truck that doesn't cut any corners. If you liked these trucks when they were new, this is a great opportunity to relive the past with a bright red hauler. Call today!
