RECENTLY RESTORED HAWAIIAN BLUE CHEYENNE, 305 V8, AUTO, FACTORY A/C, TURN-KEY!!
Fans of the '70s, this 1978 Chevrolet C10 pickup will bring back good memories of a wonderful time. Forget your Bicentennial quarter collection, your Captain America lunchbox, and your Donnie and Marie albums, this attractive Chevy C10 Cheyenne is your express ticket back to your youth.
The good news is that this is a Chevy C10 pickup truck, and brings with it all the good stuff that these trucks all possess: rugged good looks, unmatched durability, and the ability to handle all the performance modifications that you'd find on a Camaro or Chevelle. The Hawaiian Blue paint is the truck's original color, quite nicely done and totally appropriate for the mid-70s. The sheetmetal appears to be original and it's laser-straight, so you don't have to wonder if this was some kind of work truck brought back to life. Instead, it has obviously been something special all its life, and like those aforementioned quarters, there are collectors keeping them safe for future generations to enjoy. The C10 offers plenty of eye candy, too, including the original front bumper that has a great shine, an unmarked original grille, new emblems (the fender emblems are original and in great shape), and a new diamond-plate rear bumper that gives the truck a heavy-duty look. And if you want it to work for a living, there's a fresh spray-in bed liner with a rubber mat in the bed.
This truck's real treat is inside, where it sports a combination of original and reproduction parts to create an all-of-a-piece look that's just the way you remember. The dash pad, headliner, and door panels are original and show some signs of age, but the cloth seat cover is new and gives a fairly accurate representation of what you got from the factory. Matching blue carpets work with the exterior paint and while they're a little faded, a set of heavy-duty floor mats will keep them from deteriorating. This truck also offers factory A/C, an AM/FM stereo radio, and fresh weather seals, so it's more than just a piece of memorabilia, it's ready to drive!
Nothing runs better than a smooth Chevy small block, and this C10 still carries its original 305 cubic inch V8. Still quite stock and nicely maintained, it runs superbly with a V8 burble at idle and smooth torque throughout. A stock air cleaner and painted valve covers keep it looking OEM and there are obvious signs of care throughout its life, including new plug wires, a recent master cylinder, and an air intake hose that looks brand new, and how often do you see that? The TH350 3-speed automatic was rebuilt about 200 miles ago, and with 2.76 gears in the 12-bolt rear end, it's still a fantastic highway cruiser. The single exhaust system is recent, and the rest of the chassis is stock and nicely preserved under a uniform layer of undercoating that isn't so heavy that anything is hidden. Four original Rally wheels wear 255/70/15 white-letter radials for a bit of a sporting look.
Clean, nicely preserved, and a ton of fun to drive, this C10 will definitely get its share of double-takes. Call today!
