1-FAMILY OWNED C-10, EXPERTLY RESTORED, 327 V8, 4BBL, TH350, DUALS, WOOD BED!
You can still get a lot of vintage iron for your money with an old truck. Take this 1964 Chevy C10 pickup, which has a beautiful recent paint job, a handsome and comfortable interior, and V8 power, plus it's been in the same family since it was new. If just having fun in an eye-catching vintage truck is your goal, there aren't many more practical ways to do it.
The mid-60s Chevy pickups were a styling home-run, and they sold record numbers of them as a result. Today, they have a great old truck vibe without being so archaic that they can't be driven like a regular vehicle. Painting it bright blue certainly helps give this one a bit of an attitude, and with the straight sheetmetal and high-gloss finish, it certainly attracts attention wherever you park it. The owner's grandfather bought it new and it's spent its entire life in a warm climate, so the sheetmetal was still in great shape when the restoration started. You also get loads of character, a genuine wood bed that offers a warm contrast to the blue paint, and enough chrome to look right, including both bumpers and a beautifully finished grille. They didn't add, modify, or shave anything, so it has a very old-school look including the unique airfoil on the back of the cab of these trucks that's just plain cool.
The period-correct tan and white vinyl interior adds to the no-nonsense vibe of this pickup, and with a new seat cover and carpets, it feels more luxurious than many of its contemporaries. On the other hand, it's still rugged and built for the job site, so the controls feel robust in your hands and everything's simple and direct. The gauges are well-marked with orange pointers hidden behind a single panel and the steering wheel has a dressed-up look with that shiny horn ring in the center. A recent retro-style AM/FM radio has been fitted into the center of the dash, and it's neat installation that looks almost like the factory intended. This was an original PowerGlide truck, but there's a TH350 3-speed automatic transmission in there today for modern driving.
Replacing the original inline-six, this truck now carries a strong 327 cubic inch V8, which delivers a healthy wallop of torque to get this pickup rolling without strain. With bright Chevy Orange paint, a few shiny dress-up items, and a 4-barrel carburetor, it has the right look under the hood and definitely makes this truck feel quick around town. The underhood area is beautifully preserved and offers the kind of presentation that you'll love to show off at the local cruise night. Underneath, there's a recent dual exhaust system with original-style mufflers for a great V8 sound and with a fully independent front suspension and coil springs out back, this is a great-riding pickup even when you're not carrying a load. It's tidy underneath, showing evidence of a frame-off restoration, and it appears that the frame has been coated with durable paint, so it's ready for another 50 years. Traditional 15-inch Rally wheels with spinners update things a big and they carry beefy BFG radials that fill the fenders perfectly.
We sell a lot of these trucks, but we don't often see them restored to this level. Beautiful, fun, and still able to do a bit of work, this Chevy has a bright future ahead of it. Call today!
