RECENT & THOROUGH RESTO, CRATE 350 V8, AUTO TRANS, HEADERS, DUALS, FACTORY A/C!
Things of quality have no fear of time, and this 1972 Chevrolet C10 pickup is a fine example. Powerful, handsome, and ready to work and play, it's proof that the market for clean classic pickups remains strong.
Finished in bright Hugger Orange (always a favorite on any Chevrolet), this C10 offers a traditional muscle car color combination that looks awesome anywhere it goes. This is the kind of color that will never go out of style on the right cars; you can't paint a modern pickup Hugger Orange, but on this square-jawed 1972 C10 it works exceedingly well. Bodywork is excellent, and it's obvious that this truck did not need any major surgery prior to paint, especially hailing from the warm, dry southern US. It also appears that this truck never worked for a living, with a bed that's in incredible condition with no abuse evident and dressed up with a set of chrome bed rails. There's plenty of trim to make it sparkle, from the squared-off grille to the chrome bumpers and that woodgrained and stainless trim that runs the length of the body, giving it a sporty demeanor. And despite a few signs of use, this truck shines like a beacon in our showroom with its vivid color and sharp presentation.
Black vinyl upholstery gives the interior an upscale, almost formal look, and the thoroughness of the restoration is evident in the painted dash, which matches the bodywork. The bench seat is firm and comfortable for three, and matching black carpets offer a little more plushness than the usual rubber mats. The dash has all the original gauges intact, including a rare factory tach mounted just ahead of the steering column, and despite a little fading, these are still some of the best-looking dials ever put into a truck. That steering wheel is something Camaro and Corvette owners will recognize, and it looks right at home here. An upgraded AM/FM/cassette stereo replaces the vintage AM piece and factory A/C is a very welcome upgrade and it blows cold. This is the kind of truck where you can slide inside and feel instantly at home.
The 350 cubic inch V8 under the hood is a crate motor that was dropped in about two years and ten thousand miles ago, so it's still quite fresh. It's a potent, torquey mill that moves the pickup with the authority of a muscle car and as a small block Chevy, it looks right in the vintage pickup. Nestled into a very clean engine bay, it looks extremely crisp with black valve covers and a matching open-element air cleaner. For some extra power, it has been fortified with an aluminum intake, ceramic-coated long-tube headers dumping into dual glasspack-style mufflers, and an upgraded ignition system. The TH350 3-speed automatic transmission was rebuilt when the new engine was installed a few years ago, and it feeds a rugged 12-bolt rear end with a chrome cover. There's nothing hiding on the lightly undercoated chassis, which shows signs of clean living with most of its original components intact, including the unique coil-spring rear suspension that rides remarkably well. Fat Rally wheels look awesome and are fitted with 225/70/15 Firestone radials that stuff the wheel wells properly.
