BEAUTIFUL HIGH QUALITY TRUCK W/ 350 V8, AUTO, COLD A/C, PWR STEER/FRT DISCS, WOW
Roll into the next cruise night with this 1968 Chevrolet C10 pickup, and they might just hand you the big trophy before you even shut the engine off. Beautifully built, this stylish pickup has all the right ingredients for a serious street machine, and it doesn't matter if you prefer driving or showing, it does it all equally well.
Few trucks are as good-looking as Chevy's C10 models from the mid-60s to the mid-70s. This one, with its lowered stance and sleek two-tone paint almost looks like the muscle car of trucks, with a predatory crouch and a ton of eyeball appeal. Of course, the dazzling Corvette Bronze paint doesn't hurt, along with a cowl-induction hood and exemplary bodywork to make it look its best. A lot of prep went into this truck before the paint went on, with great gaps and smooth surfaces that show undistorted reflections, a hallmark of quality workmanship and a big investment of time. The emblems, door handles, and other add-ons were retained, so its identity remains strong yet it looks very custom at a glance. All the bright chrome trim survived the makeover as well, including the stainless side trim that accentuates the fender arches and makes the two-tone paint possible. The white roof and grille are nods to tradition, as is the tailgate with big block letters spelling out CHEVROLET six inches high. The bed is protected by a spray-in bedliner, so this is one truck that can still do a little work around the house, making it a great choice if you can have only one toy.
While the exterior says muscle, the interior says luxury. Custom houndstooth seats with lots of support and a drop down center armrest anchor a luxurious-looking cab that's a long way from 1968. Finely tailored and expertly trimmed to look OEM, the interior is a slam-dunk in the styling department and with the middle jump seat, practical as well. The original instrument panel is full of handsome restored gauges, including a rather rare factory tach, and the three-spoke steering wheel on the tilt column would look at home in a Camaro. Custom door panels were crated to match the upholstery, so the truck has a very polished, high-quality feel, it's fitted with factory A/C that's fully operational thanks to an R134a refrigerant upgrade. Entertainment is via an AM/FM stereo in the original location and it includes USB adapters for your modern devices.
In the horsepower department, this C10 is rocking a 350 cubic inch Chevy V8 complete with an Edelbrock intake with a big 4-barrel carb up top. There's plenty of chrome, from the valve covers to the air cleaner and the rest was painted black to stay in the background. A set of stock exhaust manifolds control heat and noise and have been coated to look good virtually forever and there's a giant radiator up front to keep it cool. The great-running small block runs great, with endless reserves of torque on tap at any speed and the custom dual exhaust system sounds awesome exhaling through a pair of tips tucked under the rear bumper. It's backed by a TH400 3-speed automatic transmission feeding a stout 12-bolt rear hanging on the stock coil spring suspension. That lowered stance is exactly right, hunkered down on those gorgeous 17-inch Boyd Coddington wheels with 235/60/17 front and 275/60/17 rear performance radials.
Fast, fun, and stylish, this truck offers an incredible look and heavy-duty hardware for a very reasonable price. Call today!
