QUALITY RESTORATION, FRESH 283 V8, PWR FRNT DISCS, GR8 PAINT, NICE INT & UNDER!!
This 1965 Chevrolet C10 is an intoxicating mix between a stealthy pickup and cool custom. After all, the unmistakable vintage shape is joined by extra shine on the paint, great alloys, new lowered suspension, and an enhanced small block to create a pickup that will turn heads and keep them all guessing.
The cab has a cool wraparound crease that proves the '60s were a great time for designers even within Chevy's truck division. You can see all these details today thanks to great care with the sheetmetal. The turquoise represents the era perfectly, and now it benefits from the super shine that comes from modern paint and a professional hand applying it, and the white bumpers, grille, and tailgate lettering give this a kind of two-tone elegance. These factory features, along with the real wood truck bed, could easily give off the impression of great cruiser restored to period-correct standards. But the large 20-inch torque thrust style Vision alloys on the lowered suspension instantly make you realize there is something more going on with this truck.
If all you did was peek inside, then maybe you'd still be under the impression that this is a nice C10 restored to factory specs. Especially with an original-style wheel, factory gauges, and a dash that are all in a nice matching tan. Even the bench seat has been recovered for a great factory-correct look. But keen eyes will spot the comfort features like the auxiliary gauge and AM/FM stereo with digital tuner... these are more hints of a thoughtful build.
One look under the hood, and your first impression might still be this is just some good 'ol pickup. After all, this generation relied on the 283 cubic-inch V8, and this one pays tribute to that legacy with a great presentation on the recently rebuilt motor. The freshly painted block with matching intake and valve covers radiating from within the dark engine bay is something that's sure to draw attention. But then when you fire this motor up, the extra growl from the glasspack dual exhaust starts to give a clearer picture of the stealthy natures. And as you look closer, you'll see performance components like Holley four-barrel carburetor and Edelbrock Performer EPS intake. You get to full control over this enhanced V8 with the classic three-on-the-tree manual transmission that benefits from a new clutch and pressure plate. Also, make sure you take time to look at the undercarriage photos. The suspension really lets you know how fresh this build is, and you can also spot some great features. Up front is an immaculate new assembly of the independent suspension that now also features disc brakes. In the rear is the sought-after trailing arm suspension that made these C10s ride better than most others on the road. And to all this, you add the grip of modern Nexen N3000 tires at all four corners.
Complete with owner's manual, build receipts, and restoration photos, you're looking at an impressive pickup priced at far less that it would cost for you to create this project.
