ALLURING FORREST GREEN, 355 CID, AUTOMATIC, NICE INTERIOR, RUNS-DRIVES EXCELLENT
You may note with some interest that trucks like this 1969 Chevrolet C10 sell faster than just about anything else we have in stock. They're handsome, rugged, and with the right upgrades, a ton of fun on the street (think: Camaro with a bed). So it is with some urgency that I ask you to look it over, then give us a call, because like those that have come before it, this one surely won't last long.
Lowered and bristling with horsepower, this slick C10 takes everything that was great about these trucks and turns it up to 11. Note the cowl-induction hood, the perfect stance, and the slightly oversized fender tubs in the bed, all of which suggest there's more to this pickup than just hauling lumber. The dark green paint gives it a subtlety that neatly counters the aggressive look, making most folks do a double-take when they see it because it looks fast, but also elegant. Finish quality is good all around, not perfect, but nice enough to be worth of the attention that it generates on the street. A few chrome accents like the relatively fresh bumpers, as well as the stock stainless grille and surround, gives it a classic look that will never go out of style. The bed is still ready to work, too, thanks to a spray-in bedliner.
The handsome two-tone interior keeps things subtle but on-point, using black and green to emulate the factory look and tie it together with the exterior. A few modern details have been added in the interest of comfort and performance, most notably the big Monster Tach with shift light on the steering column, a sporty Grant GT steering wheel, and billet pedals that simply look cool. Auxiliary gauges under the center of the dash are another useful addition, as the original gauges are, well, original and starting to show their age. The ratcheting shifter on the center tunnel means you'll never have to hunt for the right gear again and gives the sporting interior the right hardware to be legit. An AM/FM/CD stereo fits quite neatly into the center of the dash, and with a sliding rear window, it's easy to stay comfortable in this hot pickup, even on warm, sunny days.
The snarling 355 cubic inch small block would definitely be at home in an early Camaro, and this relatively lightweight pickup makes good use of the estimated 425 horsepower on tap. All the good stuff is here, from an Edelbrock intake and Holley carburetor to an MSD ignition system, and it looks fantastic with Chevy Orange paint and a few chrome dress-up pieces. Long-tube headers dump into a custom Flowmaster dual exhaust system that tucks up into the frame for good ground clearance on this lowered pickup and produce an awesome soundtrack at full throttle. The TH350 3-speed automatic transmission was built with performance in mind and includes a 2800 RPM stall torque converter that makes it feel snappy around town. There's also a rugged 12-bolt rear end, probably necessary with those giant rear meats. Fresh chrome Rally wheels with spinners give it an updated yet traditional look, and as I said the rubber is pretty darned impressive.
If you like the look, you're going to love how it runs. Like I said, this truck probably won't last long, especially after the first guy comes in for a test drive. Call today!
