SLIGHTLY LOWERED, NICE TRUCK, 307 V8, TH350 TRANS, 12 BOLT, DRIVES EXCELLENT!
We probably sell more of these Chevy pickups than anyone else, but the truth is, they pretty much sell themselves. They offer great looks, lots of performance, and plenty of practicality, making them great hobby vehicles that are easy to love. This 1968 Chevrolet C10, for example, is done just right, with bright paint, a smooth-running small block, and a handsome, comfortable interior that's a great place to spend your free time.
The short bed/regular cab setup gives this C10, sitting on its lowered suspension, a bit of a muscle car look. The styling is a flat-out home run, deceptively simple but timeless and rugged. Not a lot of extraneous trim was required, because the guys who stamped out the sheetmetal already got it exactly right. Painting it bright red certainly helps, drawing your attention to the flared fenders and distinctive character lines that run from nose to tail. No, this is just a simple, honest hauler that's ready to go to next week's cruise-in. A few chrome bits remain, including the stainless trim outlining the tailgate, and the bumpers have a satin silver finish that's actually quite attractive. There's also a spray-in bedliner to protect the cargo bay, meaning that this truck still works as a truck.
The interior keeps things pretty stock, but the attractive two-tone upholstery with cloth seating surfaces is a far more comfortable way to travel than the original sticky vinyl. There's also an aftermarket steering wheel that looks vaguely OEM but offers a thick leather-wrapped rim. Original gauges still look good with only moderate signs of age and the entire dash was refinished when the truck was repainted not too long ago. Black carpets on the floors are protected by heavy-duty Chevrolet floor mats and the matching black door panels are nicely fitted. This is not a high-option truck, but the lack of a radio only means that nobody has hacked things up behind the dash and that it's ready for your own choice. Tinted windows help control solar gain, which is especially important down south, which is where this truck spent most of its life.
The engine is a 307 cubic inch Chevy V8 that provides plenty of muscle to move the relatively lightweight pickup. It sure looks right with Chevy Orange paint and a minimum of aftermarket parts, which seem to be limited to the chrome air cleaner. It's very tidy under the hood, suggesting recent work and good attention to detail, as many of the components show correct colors and finishes. It starts easily and idles with a decent rumble from the twin Flowmaster mufflers out back, and it'll zoom around town with enough punch to put a grin on your face. The transmission is a TH350 3-speed automatic feeding a 12-bolt rear end, which hangs on those long control arms and nice-riding coil springs. The lowered stance looks fantastic, especially with those shiny Rally wheels and fat 255/70/15 front and 275/70/15 rear BFG radials.
This is a nice truck, ideal for having fun on sunny days and making your trip to Home Depot a lot more enjoyable. We sell a lot of these, but there's no secret to why: they're just great trucks. Call today!
