Now that trucks have earned a spot in collector's hearts, you're going to find some pretty nice haulers on the market. Few will be as gorgeous and well-finished as this 1972 Chevrolet C10 pickup, however. As the recipient of a recent and intensive restoration, this truck is an excellent choice for local show and cruise nights, and with a sweet-running small block, it's even more fun for the guy behind the wheel.
This truck looks to have spent its life in a warm climate, as it's quite straight and very tidy in all the places that matter. The body was recently completely refinished, although thanks to its excellent care over the past 36 years, no body panels required replacement and there is no sign of major body filler anywhere on it. The paint is two-stage urethane in a cheerful sea foam green with a cream top, a great combination that's appealing, period-perfect, and quite nicely done. Panels fit together quite well and every detail has been adjusted to make this one of the tightest trucks we've ever represented. There's not a lot of trim on the truck, but the bright chrome bumpers are excellent and the stock grille shows no signs of its age. The bed is completely restored, but if you want to put it to work, you don't have to worry because there's a heavy-duty rubber mat in there to keep the lovely paint protected.
The black bucket seat interior definitely sports some upgrades, taking this heavy hauler to a whole new level. The seats are in excellent condition with no splits or tears, and the door panels and their matching black inserts are just as nice. A factory-style center console anchors new carpets throughout, giving this truck a neo-muscle car vibe and it's quite comfortable for long trips. You'll also note that this truck carries air conditioning, which works properly thanks to R134a refrigerant and modern hardware under the hood, as well as an upgraded AM/FM stereo radio in the center of the dash. Other luxury features include a tilt steering column, power steering and power brakes. The "camera case" finish on the gauge panel was a popular finish at the time (the same stuff was found on Mustangs of the period) and the big, legible gauges are some of the most attractive ever fitted to a pickup truck.
The engine is a 350 cubic inch V8 with all the usual mods and upgrades to make it a fantastic runner. Rebuilt in the recent past, it runs like new and makes good power and torque thanks to a few choice upgrades like an Edelbrock intake and a 4-barrel carb. Gorgeous chrome valve covers and a matching open-element air cleaner give it a high-performance look, while a chrome alternator adds some eye candy. Note all the new hardware, hoses, clamps, and wiring used throughout-there's almost nothing under the hood that's more than a few years old. The TH350 3-speed automatic was rebuilt at the same time and shifts crisply driving a 12-bolt rear. A custom dual exhaust system was fabricated, and it certainly appears that things like the shocks, bushings and other components have been replaced. It rolls on a set of beautiful American Racing Torque Thrust rims with 245/60/15 front and 275/60/15 rear BFGoodrich tires.
With the obvious quality of the work and just 1500 miles since it was cmpleted, this is a truck you can buy with confidence. They simply don't get much nicer than this. Call today!
