STOCK SURVIVOR, VERY SMOOTH 327 V8, AUTO, FACTORY AC, PS/PB, ORIG BLUE/NEW WHITE

Vintage trucks are extremely popular right now, and if this 1966 Chevrolet C10 is any indication, there's a bright future in old haulers. From the handsome blue paint to the smooth-running 327 under the hood, this cool pickup offers a great glimpse into what trucks were really like in the mid-1960s. 1966 was the last year for the Fleetside pickups introduced in 1960, which offered lower rooflines and a swept-back cab that offered industry-leading space and comfort, and we wouldn't see such ornate trucks ever again.

Finished in bright medium blue with a white top, this truck is a movie star. The Fleetside offered dramatic styling with lots of swoops and curves, as well as brilliant use of trim, and all of it remains 100% intact on this hauler. Other styling details include the wing-like lip at the back of the cab, which probably has no real function but looks really cool. Surprisingly, the blue paint is all original - not repainted; only the white has been repainted. So, it's apparent that it's been taken care of all its life. These were well-made rugged machines from new, so it shouldn't be surprising to find one this nice today. All the original trim remains, from the massive front bumper and delicate egg crate grille, to the cool cast trim piece behind the cab, to the polished stainless along the sides that is strongly reminiscent of the Impala SS trim from just a few years earlier. Sharp eyes will notice the optional passenger side rearview mirror as well. But if you need it to work, it's ready, with a wood-floor bed that is most likely still original as well, it's OK to throw your stuff in there without a second thought.

Trucks were austere machines when they were new, and this one seems pretty much the way they were back then with a few notable upgrades. The bench seat still wears the original cloth and vinyl upholstery, which is showing some wear but ties in perfectly with the matching headliner, gray dash and black rubber floor coverings. Padded dashes and door panels hadn't yet made it to the truck lines, so they've been finished in medium gray to give everything a uniform look and you'll be shocked to find that this one carries working factory A/C! The original gauges are a very cool setup with a single lens over all dials and the original AM radio is joined by a modern Pioneer AM/FM/CD head unit neatly installed under the dash so it's all easy to revert to stock if that's what you want.

We have every reason to believe that's the original, numbers-matching 327 cubic inch V8 under the hood, although such things matter less in a truck than in a Corvette. As a truck, function was chosen over style, so it runs a heavy-duty air cleaner, simple stamped valve covers, and correct Chevy Orange paint on the block, which, again is original. It runs beautifully with that smoothness that only '60s engines seem to demonstrate and it's so tight and eager to run. Both power steering and a newer power brake setup make it easy to handle and there's evidence of conscientious maintenance throughout. The 2-speed PowerGlide automatic transmission shifts crisply and while it's original, the chassis is in good order with no signs of life in the rust belt. Simple painted steel wheels with basic hubcaps were fitted with 235/70/15 whitewall radials to give it a period-correct look.

This is a great truck that can work all day and still clean up nicely for a night out on the town. Call today!
