NICE AND SOLID C-10 STEPSIDE, 350CI MOTOR W/ TH350 TRANS, POWER STEERING/BRAKES
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 bright white paint to the rumbling 350 under the hood, this cool pickup offers a custom twist on the original design.
Finished in basic white, this truck is a movie star. The stepside bodywork offers 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, and the neat crease that surrounds the entire cab. Paint and bodywork are done to a good standard, so this truck will be right at home both at local shows and on the streets afterwards. There are bedrails to dress up the basic pickup truck look, but otherwise the package is pretty much as GM intended. All the original trim remains, too, from the massive front and rear bumpers and delicate egg crate grille, to the neat side mirrors that look like industrial art all by themselves. The bed floor is done in wood, as was typical back then, and it shows some patina today, which only means that you shouldn't be afraid to use this truck as intended.
Trucks were austere machines when they were new, but this one has had a full luxury upgrade during the build. The original bench was recovered in gray patterned fabric, tying in neatly with the black carpets and white dash and door panels. Simplicity was the key so they didn't go overboard with upgrades, and while the build was obviously done a few years ago, it shows very little wear. The original gauges are a very cool setup with a single face that certainly looks restored, along with white-faced auxiliary gauges installed under the dash and a steering column-mounted tachometer. A digital AM/FM/cassette stereo fits neatly in the center of the dash without any major cutting or modifications and there are sturdy heavy-duty rubber floor mats that keep its truck credentials intact.
When the truck was restored a few years ago, a 350 cubic inch V8 was nestled between the front fenders to make it runs as good as it looks. An Edelbrock carb helps make power, so it runs beautifully, and all the accessories were upgraded, including the alternator, power steering, power brakes, and a big radiator up front. A few chrome dress-up parts make it look good and the Chevy Orange paint is always a traditional touch that looks right. It starts easily with a great V8 rumble from the Flowmaster dual exhaust system, and with a TH350 3-speed automatic transmission, it's easy to drive. The chassis is clean but largely original, so it's not shiny and perfect. On the other hand, it shows off what clean living down south will get you and again, if you want to use your vintage pickup to get some chores done, this one will never complain. Cool Rally-style wheels with black centers and trim rings give it a muscular look, especially with those fat 275/60/15 white-letter radials.
Still appealing, this cool old Chevy pickup demonstrates that things of quality have no fear of age. Call today!
