HUGGER ORANGE, LOW STANCE, 350 V8, TH400, LONGTUBE HEADERS, PS, PB, FLOWMASTERS!
You want fresh? You've got it with this 1970 Chevy C10 pickup. With a paint job that still smells wet and a neatly finished interior, they don't come much cleaner than this. High-visibility V8 fun is still within reach, even as these trucks skyrocket in popularity.
Hugger Orange looks great on anything wearing a Chevy bowtie emblem, especially something during the height of the muscle car era such as this C10 pickup. The investment in the sheetmetal has to be considerable given how well the results are, and the dedication that put this truck together certainly shows in the finish. And thanks to the miracle of modern paints, it'll probably look this good for decades with just a modicum of effort on your part. The vivid Hugger Orange paint is so attention-grabbing that you almost miss the cowl-induction hood, which should probably be standard equipment on every vintage Chevy. Add in a bunch of brightly polished stainless steel trim, and a beautifully finished bed that looks too nice to ever carry working-class cargo again, and, well, you have one heck of a truck.
The flashback to the '60s continues inside with black cloth upholstery with orange piping, a great look that suits the sporting pickup just fine. The original bench is still firm and comfortable, and thanks to professional workmanship, it looks right at home in the vintage pickup's driver's compartment. Black door panels and new black carpets add to the upscale vibe and both help control noise and heat, so this remains an eminently comfortable vehicle for driving around town. The steering wheel is original-issue, as are the gauges, which are assisted by a column-mounted tachometer right in the center. An AM/FM/cassette stereo head unit snuggles into the original dash and sounds great thanks to 40 years of entertainment technology improvements. Looking for a truck you can drive without complaint? You've just found it.
Part of that driving pleasure comes from the 350 cubic inch V8 fitted between the fenders and dressed almost like it would have been when it was new. A few upgrades include the Edelbrock 4-barrel carburetor and intake manifold, long-tube headers, and a chrome air cleaner, so it doesn't look totally stock, but the fresh paint is just about the same color as the bodywork, so it has an all-of-a-piece look. Power steering and power brakes are welcome additions to the roster and a TH400 3-speed automatic transmission is rugged enough for just about anything you can come up with in this truck. A heavy-duty rear end hangs on trailing arms and coil springs, making these C10s some of the best-riding vintage pickup trucks you can own. There's also a new Flowmaster dual exhaust system with chrome tips poking out from behind the rear wheels, adding to the custom look. Heck, there's even a fat sway bar up front which gives this lowered truck impressive handling for its size and age. Classic Rally wheels and fat 275/60/15 BFGoodrich T/A radials give it exactly the right stance.
A very cool pickup with a ton of eyeball appeal and a smooth-running small block. There's a lot more than the asking price wrapped up in this restoration, making this bright orange C10 somewhat of a bargain. Call today!
