FULLY RESTORED C-10, 350CI SBC, FRESHLY INSTALLED A/C, SLICK DARK GREEN PAINT
This 1963 Chevrolet C10 pickup is one of those vehicles where it's even nicer than it looks in photos. Sure, the green paint looks shiny, but when you see it with your own eyes, you'll be amazed that a pickup can look this good. There's also a fully dressed small block V8, a gorgeous oak bed, and a no-nonsense interior that's a great blend of practical and comfortable. What's not to love?
Dark green suits the pickup truck quite well once it's done working for a living, giving the stepside an elegant look that doesn't call too much attention to itself. However, when you do notice it, the quality stands out in a big way. The bodywork is super straight, the result of hours and hours of block sanding and tedious polishing, the bed is so clean that it's hard to believe this truck ever carried a load, and the chrome sparkles. Dark green was surely on the color pallet in 1963, but nothing like the two-stage urethane it's wearing today, which has depth and shine in equal measure. The cab has that cool "wing" on top which is one of the cooler factory designs, and it's dressed up with chrome trim that really highlights the look. There are also chrome bumpers that are in fantastic shape, custom chrome step plates for the bed, and some high-mounted LED taillights that are a lot more visible than the originals, which is good for safety. And that bed, of course, is beautifully finished with a polyurethane varnish on the fresh wood planks.
The black interior is entirely new and quite nicely done, partly the way you'd have a pickup look originally and partly updated with modern conveniences. The black vinyl bench has a very vintage pattern in the stitching and a kind of tough-guy attitude that extends to the matching black door panels. The twin cockpit styling of the dashboard mirrors what Chevy was doing with their passenger cars and the gauges are all stashed behind a single pane of Plexiglas with the markings floating on top for a very cool effect. A custom Grant steering wheel looks like it might have descended from the factory wheels found in '60s Corvettes and Camaros, and a pair of white-faced gauges underneath help keep a closer eye on the engine. A/C has been tucked in under the dash, and there's a Sony AM/FM/CD/iPod stereo neatly stuffed into the original radio's slot.
A 350 cubic inch V8 fits between the fenders like it was born there, although all that chrome makes it look a lot flashier. The dual snorkel air cleaner has been painted to match the body and topped with a chrome lid, all of which is hiding an Edelbrock 4-barrel carb and intake manifold. Ceramic-coated long-tube headers and a pair of Flowmaster mufflers give it a great muscle car sound that's a lot of fun and you'll find it hard to resist blipping the throttle in tunnels. A crisp-shifting automatic transmission and 10-bolt rear end with 3.08 gears inside make it a fantastic cruiser under any circumstances and fat 275/60/15 BFGoodrich radials and chrome steelies with baby moon hubcaps give it an old-school custom look.
This is a seriously nice truck that's ready to enjoy, and if you're in the right place at the right time, it'll probably collect a few trophies along the way, too. Call now!
