BUILT 454, AUTO, COLD A/C, PS, PB, STRONG RUNNING & VERY COMFORTABLE C10, NICE!
It's probably safe to think of this pretty 1970 Chevrolet C10 pickup as a Camaro with a really big trunk. Big block power, a lowered suspension that grabs the road, and all the modern conveniences have erased its status as "just an old pickup" and elevated it to something that's a lot more fun to drive. The fact that it also looks great certainly doesn't hurt, either!
If you squint, maybe you can imagine this bright Hugger Orange Chevy pickup cruising down to the local feed store back in 1970, but today it's an entirely different story. This one puts in appearances at car shows and cruises the streets with the swagger of an apex predator, because it has the hardware to beat a lot of high-quality machinery. It's also beautifully restored, with great paint and bodywork that suggests either someone spent a ton of time and money on it or it never really hauled the heavy stuff home from the feed store in the first place, or maybe even a little of both. Whatever the case, it's seriously nice, with an impressive gloss on the paint that's a result of many hours of tedious hand labor, but the investment was worth it. It has some miles on it today, so it's not quite as perfect as it was when it was first finished, but there's no doubt that the workmanship was first rate and that it's had expert care since then. Most of the chrome and trim has been shaved, there's a cowl induction hood to give it an aggressive look, and a custom rear roll pan tidies up the rear end. It's got a neat flush-fitting tonneau cover, and underneath there's a clean bed with a heavy-duty rubber mat, just in case you need something moved.
The interior's a long way from stock, starting with a handsomely trimmed bench seat that's one part original issue and one part street rod. There's a custom console on the floor, also wrapped in handsome tan vinyl, and the door panels are custom-stitched pieces that match quite nicely. As with the body, there are some VERY minor signs of use, but for the most part this interior is expertly done and a wonderful combination of pickup truck and muscle. The gauges are attractive Auto Meter dials working in concert with the original gauges, and all the comfort items you'd want are included, from the billet steering wheel to the A/C system to plush carpets that help control noise and heat. If you can't get comfortable here, you're doing it wrong.
The engine is a 454 cubic inch V8 with big horsepower and torque on tap at virtually any speed. Looking a lot like the factory built it, the engine bay is orderly with great service access and OEM levels of fit and finish. Of course, plenty of shiny parts take it up a few notches, but it was obviously built with an eye towards the factory look. There's a big radiator up front to keep it cool and R134a refrigerant inside the A/C system, so it'll be easy to maintain in the future. It's backed by an automatic transmission and feeds a heavy-duty 12-bolt rear end with a shiny chrome cover on it. The chassis is neatly detailed like a stocker would be, but offers upgrades like a set of long-tube headers, a great-sounding Flowmaster dual exhaust system, and a lowered suspension, so it really does handle like a muscle car. Those wheels are handsome Eagle alloys carrying staggered 235/60/15 front and 295/50/15 rear BFGoodrich T/A radials.
This is a fantastic truck, as I'm sure you've gathered. Fast, comfortable, and still quite capable, it's vintage muscle that can do it all. Call today!
