BIG BLOCK 454 POWER, NICE BRIGHT ORANGE PAINT W/ WHITE CAB, VERY COOL 60'S C10
Stepside pickups are cool. Vintage stepside pickups like this 1966 Chevy C10 are even cooler. Whether it's the muscular rear fenders' aggressive looks or the throwback to tradition that appeals to us, if you want a fun hobby truck, this big block-powered stepside is definitely the way to go.
In white over orange, this truck's many curves, edges, and interesting details stand out, ranging from the cool hood whose character line extends around the cab, to the semi-wing on the top of the cab itself, to the traditional-looking bed. Someone clearly spent a good deal of effort on the truck, and today it's probably nicer than it was even new, and probably even too nice to go back to work. This is a truck you'll show with pride instead. It's traditional but eye-catching and the look gets attention everywhere it goes without being too outrageous; after all, it could have been this color when it was new. Add in the cool diamond plate bed floor and a cool rear bumper that looks like it belongs on a passenger car, and you have a truck that went to finishing school before hitting the job site. Workmanship is quite good, and while there are signs of it being driven and enjoyed, the presentation is excellent. You could definitely say that we like this truck. It's clean, simple, and isn't trying to be something it's not.
The interior received a full makeover when the truck was restored, and now sports very attractive two-tone tan leather upholstery on the factory bench seat. It's still quite comfortable for three across, and the soft hides give it a high style look that suits the truck just fine. Dig the cool cut out in the lower cushion to make room for the 4-speed manual transmission, a touch you don't find on many trucks. Factory gauges still monitor the engine from behind their neat silk-screened lens, and additional gauges under the dash give you a slightly better view. The dash has been painted to match the body, as have the inner door panels, so the interior is bright and airy thanks to expansive windows. A newer AM/FM/CD stereo has been fitted in the original dash location and nicely fitted tan carpets give it a finished look inside.
Under the hood is a butch 454 cubic inch V8 with a bunch of traditional upgrades like a big Holley carburetor and dual Flowmaster mufflers, and it moves the truck easily with a great hot-rod feel. Nicely detailed in black, it wears finned valve covers, and a low-profile air cleaner so you won't be afraid to pop the hood at the next cruise night. This one also focuses on performance almost exclusively, with no power steering or brakes to get in the way of the horsepower. The truth is, it's easy to drive and doesn't need any Herculean efforts to maneuver, and you'll definitely enjoy the engine's fat torque curve and great exhaust note. The chassis is almost completely stock and nicely preserved, with no signs of rust or damage. The 4-speed manual gearbox feeds the original 12-bolt rear end, which hangs on coil springs for a surprisingly comfortable ride. Cool Pacer chrome wheels add even more sizzle and wear fat 275/60/15 Hankook white letter radials.
This is a fun, good-looking truck that lets you join the hobby without a huge investment. Call today!
