This cool 1965 Chevrolet C10 stepside pickup has tons of character. With fresh yet subtle paint, it's exactly the kind of truck that you'll wistfully stare at in a parking lot because it talks to you like your favorite pair of jeans or that comfy leather chair you're so fond of. It's all about character and lots of it.
Now that you've seen it, I think you'll agree that this '65 Chevy looks awesome in Anniversary Gold. It has a very correct period feel, and looks exactly right on the interesting curves that make up the mid-60s pickups. The bodywork was done to a good standard not too long ago, and it still shows very well today. Gaps are decent all around, including the massive hood that wraps around and forms the tops of the fenders, as well as the cool faux spoiler at the rear edge of the cab (yes, that's factory!). Even the latch hardware on the tailgate has been carefully painted to match and doesn't show any scuffs or damage from just driving around. There's not a lot of trim, but the stuff on the truck is in excellent shape, with a painted grille and matching white bumpers front and rear, and small chrome mirrors that are exactly right for a sport truck like this. And speaking of tailgates, you'll dig the bed, which is a handsome single sheet of heavy-duty plywood that gives it a unique look that actually works rather well. It just looks right.
Simple tans and golds are the theme inside, but the pleated upholstery makes it feel more luxurious than your standard 1965 Chevy pickup. The bench shows very little wear, and the door panels have been painted gold to continue the look, and the new carpets fit well and have a rich look that's a big improvement over the original rubber mat. The original steering wheel is an ideal '60s piece and it frames the original gauges, which are a cool design that places all the needles under a single sheet of glass that also forms the faces of all the gauges, although a set of white-faced dials have been added under the dash. It's simple, clean, and well-executed, making for a very inviting passenger compartment that's at once upscale and appropriate for a pickup truck.
There's only one engine you want under the hood of your Chevy pickup, and that's a Chevy 350. Dressed to keep a stock flavor, this crate motor features basic black paint to give it a serious look under the hood, plus a chrome air cleaner that looks great up on top. There's a Holley carburetor underneath, an Edelbrock intake manifold, and an electronic ignition system to light it off. A TH350 3-speed automatic transmission feeds a 10-bolt rear that hangs on the original coil springs, giving the C10 a very civilized ride. Ram's horn exhaust manifolds feed a great-sounding exhaust with a nasty snarl when you dip into the throttle, all thanks to a dual glasspack style mufflers and side exits just behind the rear wheels. Handsome Rally wheels wear 225/70/15 white-letter radials that totally stuff those fat fenders and give it the perfect stance.
This 1965 Chevy C10 is the truck for the guy who values substance as well as style. It's not super flashy, but it has the good stuff where it counts. Call today!
