Why spend $50k or $60k on a new truck when awesome pickups like this 1977 Ford F-100 are still around and insanely affordable? Not quite a full-fledged collectable quite yet, it nonetheless remains a rugged, handsome truck in great colors that can still earn its keep around the homestead. While the other guys drive around in cookie-cutter pickups, you could have something interesting for a fraction of the price. Almost everything looks better with two-tone paint, including working-class hardware like this Ranger. Its obviously had a good life, and as a lifelong southern truck, it shows no signs of rust or abuse underneath. The white-over-blue paint is newer than the truck, of course, and looks spectacular with a great gloss and no signs of botched bodywork underneath. Code S Midnight Blue Metallic is the trucks original color, so you dont have to worry about mismatched door jambs and underhood areas, because its all equally well done. Its also not afraid to wear a lot of bright chrome trim, including the beefy bumpers, egg crate grille, and side trim that fits neatly into the groove running the length of the body. And we love the cab lights and bed-mounted spare for an industrial look. The 8-foot bed will carry a lot more than youd expect, and with a recent spray-in bedliner, its ready to work or play. If you do take to driving this Ford every day, the interior is a great place to do it. Freshly upholstered with a black seat cover that looks right in the vintage F-100, plus a heavy black rubber floor mat for low maintenance, it is ready to go immediately. Fords familiar square gauges show crisp, bright markings, although theyre only watching the basics of speed, temperature, and fuel level, which is why there are auxiliary dials tucked under the dash. A custom overhead switch panel on the headliner includes controls for the power windows and other controls, and a modern Pioneer AM/FM/CD stereo powers speakers built into the headliner itself. The three-spoke steering wheel feels suitably beefy for a big truck like this, and despite its blue collar origins, this is not a bad place to spend some time thanks to all the new components. The fresh and torquey 351 cubic inch V8 topped by an Edelbrock 4-barrel carburetor is the right combination of power and efficiency that youd look for today. Both the engine and transmission were very recently rebuilt so the engine bay is nicely detailed and not too far from stock. Dress-up parts like the Edelbrock air cleaner and valve covers help with the performance look, and theres Ford Blue on the block. A fresh alternator provides plenty of juice if youre, say, towing a trailer or installing a camper top in the bed, and with power steering and brakes, its easy to drive no matter the load. Fords rugged twin I-beam suspension isnt the most precise setup ever devised, but it rides incredibly well for a big hauler. Out back, theres a 9-inch, which is equally rugged and according to the door tag, it carries 2.72 gears, which are great for highway cruising. The dual exhaust system offers modest mufflers so its quiet out on the road, and while its not detailed for show, the chassis is really clean. The 2-inch lift and slick black wheels (full spare mounted in the bed!) look awesome on the big Ford and use giant 265/60/18 Cooper radials to keep them off the ground. Clean old pickups like this still represent great value, and one that can double as a hobby vehicle on weekends while still working for a living is a bargain in anyones book. And with an awesome look like this, we know this F-100 wont last long. Call today!
The good looks of a Chevelle and the utility of a pickup bed are still hard to beat, even after four decades. This handsome 1972 Chevrolet El Camino sports a built 350 under the hood and a great look, making it one of the few muscle cars that will be happy to go to work with you. Practical speed, thats the El Camino. Obviously black is one of those colors that will never go out of style. Smooth, slick, and thoroughly up to date, this sinister black SS most certainly looks the part of a heavy-hitter on the street. A cowl-induction hood certainly helps with that impression, although we kind of like that they skipped the SS stripes and kept it kind of low-profile. The paint job is older but fit and finish are decent, good enough to fit in at the local cruise night. Theres some age on the paint but black looks great no matter what you do with it and it panel gaps are pretty good. They didnt go crazy with the customization, and with a black vinyl top, it looks a little upscale and stands out from the rest of the El Caminos thatll be around town. The bed, which is the place where its easiest to tell how serious the owner was about his work, shows extremely well with no major dings or damage, and features a spray-in bedliner to help it survive a few jobs around the house. El Camino interiors are another nice combination of street car comfort and commercial vehicle practicality. A bench seat allows three passengers and heavy-duty floor mats add some contrast. The seat is in great shape, and if the seat cover is original its shockingly nice for being more than 40 years old. The dash is in very good shape but since the gauges cover just the basics, it includes the usual aftermarket dials underneath. The carpets show a little age since black is so hard to protect from the effects of UV rays, but they look great and fit well. This El Camino also features factory A/C, although the system needs to be serviced. Theres also an AM/FM/8-track stereo in the dash, which is a cool throwback piece, and the subwoofers behind the seat ensure it still sounds great. The engine is a great running 350 cubic inch Turbo Fire V8 thats ideal in the multi-purpose truck/car. With a Rochester 4-barrel carburetor, a modest cam, and HEI ignition, the orange powerplant is content to churn out torque at any speed and laughs at loads in the bed. Painted valve covers and a chrome air cleaner dress it up even though its not too far from stock, and with power steering and brakes, this hauler is a breeze to maneuver in traffic or parking lots. Cast iron manifolds control heat and noise, feeding a true dual exhaust system with glasspack-style mufflers and chrome tips just under the bumper to keep it looking sporty. The TH350 3-speed automatic transmission and 12-bolt rear mean that you dont ever have to worry about breakage, and while its not show quality underneath, it doesnt show any signs of life in an inclement climate, either. Factory Rally wheels are an ideal choice, and sport 235/60/15 white-letter radials at all four corners. Always attractive and eminently usable, this El Camino is a very affordable way to own the A-list muscle youve always wanted without a huge investment. Call today!
This 1987 Chevrolet K20 pickup is just a nice 4x4 pickup. Nothing radical, just a super clean long bed truck, a smart-running small block V8, and a sharp Midnight Blue paint job that sticks to the factory recipe. This is simply a lot of truck for the money. You already know we love these trucks around our showroom and we probably sell more of them than just about anyone else. So it makes sense that when a nice one shows up, everyone kind of takes notice. This pretty Midnight Blue K20 has that rugged, square-jawed look that makes these trucks the latest and greatest collector-value haulers and the finish is really quite good. Its not so nice that youll be afraid to put it to work, but when you get home and hose it off itll look good enough to go out to dinner that night. Its not flashy, but if a pickup can be elegant, this truck nails it. Nice chrome bumpers, a heavy-duty rear bumper, and oversized mirrors make it practical as well as attractive and you can tell just by looking in the bed that this truck has probably never had to very work for a living. Theres a spray-in bedliner just in case and a fifth-wheel ball is a nice option if you have some heavy hauling to do (the K20 is a -ton so it can handle it). The matching blue interior is typical GM no-nonsense, with a wide bench seat, a handsome wrap-around dash, and plenty of creature comforts. There are recent carpets on the floor and a new seat cover in a sturdy OEM-grade vinyl, and it appears that the door panels are nicely preserved originals and the dash is in great shape with no cracks caused by UV damage. The gauges are also original and monitor all the engines vitals, all surrounded by a nice-looking crinkle-finish panel. Features include cold A/C, power steering, power brakes, and an upgraded AM/FM/cassette stereo system and all of it is in working order. Heavy-duty floor mats are a welcome site if you plan on heading into the dirt. The transmission shifter is on the column, but as usual, the 4x4 system is actuated by the floor-mounted transfer case shifter, which also works like it should, giving you a lot of versatility. For power, this Chevy relies on a tried-and-true 350 cubic inch V8 with throttle body fuel injection. Its fairly stock, so reliability is not compromised and it still starts, idles, and drives pretty much like the factory intended. The engine bay is incredibly clean, suggesting that this truck has never really ventured too far off road, and there are signs of recent maintenance to the A/C system. The transmission is an indestructible TH400 3-speed automatic that never seems to mind doing the heavy lifting, and the two-speed transfer case and heavy-duty axles make it invincible in the slippery stuff. Underneath theres exactly zero evidence of rot and as a lifetime Georgia truck, its probably never seen anything worse than a rain storm. A new exhaust system gives it the right sound and there are signs of recent work on the brakes. And given all the lifted trucks with oversized wheels, we have to say we like the simple white steelies and hubcaps on this big K20, which carry 285/75/16 off-road radials. Nothing radical here, just a nicely finished truck with great maintenance and no stories. If your tastes run more towards stock than modified, then this Chevy deserves a closer look. Call today!
El Caminos, love em or hate em, are a unique piece of the American landscape. With decades of tradition behind it, this 1986 Chevrolet El Camino represents the end of the line for the Elky (the last one would roll off the assembly line in 1987), and presents in remarkably well-preserved condition. If youve been looking for one that hasnt been worked to death or modified beyond recognition, this might be your last chance. El Caminos were trucks, and most of them were used like trucks and left for dead when they gave up. Fortunately, this nicely preserved 55,681-mile example has most likely been a cherished toy for most of its life, and thanks to life down south where the roads are warm and dry, it doesnt suffer from the dreaded tin worm, either. The original white paint is simple, clean, and actually quite handsome, and the blue pinstripe gives it a sporty edge. Fit and finish are about average for a GM product of this era, but since its original 30-year-old paint, were still pretty impressed. There are a few touch-ups, but nothing major and original paint means no scary surprises waiting underneath. Talking about preservation, just take a look at the bed, which looks like it hasnt carried anything more substantial than a few sacks of groceries and still wears its original white paint. Nice, right? The interior is a nice combination of practical and stylish, a result of the El Camino sharing a lot of DNA with the Monte Carlo. Like the exterior, its mostly original with few signs of wear and no notable damage to the seating surfaces beyond some minor stretching. The matching door panels are equally sharp, with no UV damage or cracking like you so often see on cars from the 80s, and the dash pad appears to be brand new. The El Camino was a bit sporty inside, too, with round gauge faces (although most are idiot lights), and this one is also loaded with options like A/C, a tilt wheel, power locks, and an AM/FM stereo radio. Aftermarket floor mats and a carpeted dash pad help keep it looking its best and from behind the wheel, its easy to forget youre driving a vehicle with a pickup bed out back. Too cool! With just 55,681 original miles, the original 4.3 liter V6 still has a lot of life left in it. Essentially of a familiar 350 cubic inch V8, the big V6 is smooth and torquey, a great companion in the El Camino and as a relative of the small block Chevy, you know itll run this well practically forever. As you might expect, the engine bay is super-sanitary, with all the factory equipment fully intact and 100% functional, including the fuel injection system that fires it almost instantly. Theres no rust, no questionable upgrades, yet plenty of evidence of expert maintenance, including a fresh tune-up, belts, and hoses. Its backed by a 3-speed automatic transmission spinning a standard 10-bolt rear end, and if youre looking around underneath, youll note this truck is really clean. Handsome painted Rally wheels finish the sporty look with recent whitewall radials. So El Camino fans rejoice, this clean late-model has been preserved for your enjoyment and is ready to go today.

Weve made the case for the practical and stylish El Camino here before, and with this charcoal gray 1972 Chevrolet El Camino, it remains as true as ever. Theres a strong-running small block under the hood, a handsome paint job that accentuates the cars classic styling, and honestly, if you can find a muscle car more versatile than this one, you should buy it. Dressed in sophisticated charcoal gray paint with black stripes, its the archetypal Elky, and personally, the 72s are my favorite with their single headlamps and side-mounted parking lights. The bodywork is well done and doesnt look very old, although there are signs of use that are probably inevitable. The doors fit well, and the tailgate is in great shape with none of the rust or dings that typically show up on these cars no matter how well-maintained they are. Bumpers, both front and rear, appear to be reproduction items or even very nice originals, and all the stainless trim is in good condition. Factory parking light lenses, a standard Chevy hood, and bright stainless trim all give it an OEM look, and despite the stripes, this isnt an SS clone. The bed makes this a practical piece of muscle, and thanks to a very neatly done spray-in bedliner, that means you shouldnt be afraid to put it to work now and then. I promise it wont mind! This El Camino carries a handsome black interior, which uses a bench seat to permit three-abreast seating. Most of the interior appears recent, including the door panels, headliner, and even the seat cover, all of which are correct reproductions. A bench seat is probably a smart choice in an Elky, just to maximize passenger capacity, and the column shifter means nobodys uncomfortable. The standard gauge cluster is little more than a speedometer and fuel gauge plus some idiot lights, but the powertrain is so reliable, more gauges arent really necessary. Theres an AM/FM/CD stereo in the dash that sounds great, and youll not that this is a factory A/C car, although some of the components have been removed. But for the most part, theres nothing inside to detract from the original look and thats a good thing. The engine is a 350 cubic inch V8 that runs very well with good power and a great rumble from the Flowmaster dual exhaust system. Wearing a coat of Chevy Orange, the engine is dressed with a chrome air cleaner and finned valve covers, so it looks pretty stock. For performance, theres an Edelbrock 4-barrel carburetor atop a GM intake (which has been painted orange to help it blend in), an HEI distributor, and a set of long-tube headers that hug the block for good service access. A stout TH350 3-speed automatic transmission handles the gears, doling out torque to the 10-bolt rear end, which is full of relatively tall gears so the Elky is easy-going on the highway. Power steering and brakes make this truck/car handle easily, and theres a recent Flowmaster exhaust system. Traditional Rally wheels look awesome and wear 225/70/15 BFGoodrich T/A radials. Properly sorted cars are hard to find, and when theyve led hard lives like most El Caminos, its even more difficult. This is an exception. Drive it, have fun, and dont forget that it still might enjoy working once in a while, too. Call today!

This big 1987 Chevrolet K10 4x4 has a lot going for it. Black paint, a great powertrain, and, well, who doesnt love a brute like this? With go-anywhere capabilities but the comfort and reliability of a daily driver, this might just be the ultimate pickup. The first thing you notice is the intimidating black paint job, which makes this big truck look nasty. At once unique and timeless, this truck was never a beater so it still looks quite good. The sheetmetal is straight and clean, and the Chevys squared-off looks have aged very, very well. Look closely and youll see the paint is in great shape, with a nice gloss and no areas where it needs attention, and with a simple strip of stainless down the flanks, it looks just the way the factory did it. All the original remains, including the original grille, bumpers, and even the stand-up hood ornament that dresses it up a bit. The bed is protected by a spray-in bed liner and a set of chrome bed rails that really look great. Theres also a heavy-duty rear bumper and a sliding rear window provides great ventilation on warm days. Gray cloth covers the stock bench seat, and the almost entirely original interior doesnt need a lot of flash to be functional. The lower half of the dash is painted to match the body, which is a nice touch, and upscale door panels, carpeted floors, and a bunch of comfort and convenience options make this as much luxury truck as commercial hauler. The original gauges are big, bright, and easy to read, with a factory steering wheel to help guide it down the trail. It also sports factory A/C with an R134a refrigerant upgrade, plus an AM/FM/cassette stereo down low in the dash. Everything feels well-assembled and tough, which youd expect from a truck, but it never feels like a working-class vehicle. Its still comfortable enough to use every day. With a throttle-body-injected 350 cubic inch V8 under the hood, there arent many places this brute cant go. The rebuilt engine from LKQ has about 15,000 miles and seems to be almost entirely stock save for the long-tube headers and an electric fan on the radiator. Nicely finished, the engine bay looks like someones been looking after it all its life, and if this truck was intended to get dirty, someone was certainly fastidious about cleaning it up afterwards. There are no radical modifications, so it runs happily on pump gas, idles well, pulls hard, and thanks to that electric fan, doesnt overheat during slow-speed crawling. Theres plenty of torque to turn those big tires, and thanks to a 700R4 4-speed automatic overdrive transmission, it cruises quietly and comfortably and fuel mileage goes from abominable to adequate, which is about all you can expect in a big machine like this. The factory 4-wheel-drive suspension gives it its towering presence, theres a great-sounding Flowmaster dual exhaust system, and with a steering stabilizer up front it tracks straight and doesnt wander like many 4x4 pickups. Factory Rally-style wheels wear giant 32x11.5-15 off-road tires that look great, ride well, and claw through the dirt with ease. If youre a fan of off-roading, this is a finished truck ready to enjoy, and even if you just like the look, this one is incredibly civilized. Call today!
If youre like me, you glanced at the photos and said to yourself, Wow, what a pretty truck! This 1951 Ford F-1 has a classic look, but its also been very tastefully upgraded to create an awesome resto-mod that gets just about everything right, including the bargain price tag. The soft blue paint on this truck isnt quite an original Ford color, but its not totally wrong, either. The 1950s were all about pastels and it works as well here as it did on, say, a vintage Crown Victoria. The redesigned F-1 is one of the best looking trucks of all time, so they didnt try to reinvent it when this one was built, so it keeps a very authentic look. The bumpers and grille are still traditional white and all the factory trim remains in place. Finish quality is quite good, with clean bodywork and a nice shine to the light blue paint. The body and bed are steel and it all works together to create an iconic truck that will stand out everywhere it goes. The few chrome bits still on the truck are in excellent condition and we love the way they painted the Ford script on the tailgate to make it stand out. Of course theres wood in the bed, and it has a fantastic dark stain that contrasts nicely with the paint, a trick that gives the truck an upscale character. The interior is simple, with the original bench seat reupholstered in black vinyl with original-looking pleats. The bright blue paint wraps onto the door panels and the dash was finished in black to keep it from becoming pastel overload. The factory gauges were replaced with a beautiful set of dials that were built just for this application and theres a big wood-rimmed wheel that adds warmth to the interior. The rest appears to be fairly stock, from the crank windows to the rubber floor mat, so it still feels like a vintage pickup truck when you slide behind the wheel. Attention to detail matters and this Ford manages to create an old truck feel that doesnt feel antiquated. Reliable power comes in the form of a 302 cubic inch V8 from a late-model, with a chassis borrowed from a 70s pickup. As a result, its no slouch in the performance department, sporting a Weiand intake manifold, Holley 4-barrel carburetor, a modest camshaft, and a big radiator up front. A serpentine belt drive system helps with reliability, and that donor truck also supplied power front disc brakes and power steering, so its a joy to drive. The twin I-beam suspension is built to work and there are leaf springs out back, so that bed isnt exclusively for show if you have some light hauling to do. A custom Flowmaster exhaust system sounds awesome and the C4 3-speed automatic transmission feeds a 9-inch rear end thats virtually indestructible. Handsome chrome wheels with baby moon hubcaps give it a bit of an old-school look and carry 275/60/15 white-letter radials. A truck that looks great and drives even better, this pretty Ford attracts a lot of attention but the guy who will enjoy it most is the one sitting behind the wheel. Call today!
Pickup trucks may very well be this generations muscle cars. V8 power, rear-wheel-drive, rugged mechanicals, and inexpensive to purchase and upgrade, theyre great vehicles that open a lot of opportunities for the hobbyist. This 1981 Chevrolet C10 pickup is a fine example, with a few muscle car-like upgrades and a lot of style for a bargain-basement price. If you want a muscle truck, the short bed/regular cab combination is what you want. Compact, maneuverable, and relatively light, it puts traditional performance into a manageable package that you can use every day. The stealthy black paint job looks pretty darned good, despite being finished in 2006. Theres no sign that this was ever a rusty vehicle, and the bodywork looks factory-grade no matter where you look, and only a few chips on the rockers give away its age. C10s are popular with truck enthusiasts thanks to their square-jawed good looks, and this one is no exception, sticking to the factory look without any of the usual add-ons guys usually install. The bumpers look original with a nice shine, the oversized side mirrors mean its still fully functional as a truck, and the bed is so nice you might think twice about doing any hauling in it. Just think of this as a muscle car with the worlds biggest trunk. The interior remains pretty original and true to the trucks 1980s sensibilities. The black vinyl upholstery is a great contrast to the tan carpets and door panels and the seat cover on the original bench is brand new. In fact, almost everything is new, including the door panels, kick panels, trim pieces, dash pad, and even the carpets. Theres a full array of gauges for the driver, a tilt steering column, cold factory A/C, and cruise control, all of which suggest this truck was built for driving, not working. A padded dash protector will keep things looking good for years, and the same goes for the heavy-duty rubber floor mats on the carpets. And for those days when the A/C isnt quite needed, you get a sliding rear window which makes it a pleasant place to be without a lot of extra wind. Power comes from a fresh 350 cubic inch crate motor, which delivers entertaining performance in the lightweight pickup truck body. Fortified with aluminum center-bolt heads, an aluminum GM Bow Tie intake manifold, a mile cam, a Holley 4-barrel carburetor, and HEI ignition system, its a fantastic runner once its warmed up. With fewer than 15,000 miles on it, the engine still runs strong and the lightweight truck feels downright fast around town. A few Edelbrock dress-up items are in place and with a good deep cleaning, this engine bay could really sparkle. Long-tube headers and a Flowmaster dual exhaust system not only add power but sound fantastic as well. The underside is original, but this truck comes from down south, so its no rust bucket. You also get a slick-shifting TH350 3-speed automatic transmission and a heavy-duty 12-bolt rear end with 3.73 gears inside. 15-inch Rally wheels give it an awesome look and carry 225/70/15 blackwall radials. So dont fret about not being able to afford a vintage Camaro. This pickup delivers similar thrills for a bargain price, just like that Camaro did back in the day. Call today!
Chevy has been making pickup trucks since the 30s and when you make a gazillion of them, well thats no small amount of practice. Made to withstand all the punishment that a commercial vehicle needs to tolerate, this 1989 Chevrolet Silverado pickup appears to have led a very pampered existence. There cant be many that are nicer, leading us to wonder if its time for the Silverado to become a genuine collector vehicle. With a great looks, V8 power, and remarkable originality, this great-looking survivor deserves your full attention. Red will always be in style, especially in a pickup truck, and we have to admit that it works especially well on the Chevy C/K series of trucks. Combined with the regular cab and short bed, the Silverado has a sporty demeanor and a great look. It remains in outstanding condition for being nearly 30 years old, and the shiny paint has weathered the years far better than most GM products of the era, needing nothing more than a coat of wax to really look great. There are no notable blemishes, no major road rash, just a few touch-ups here and there (check out how nice that bed looks!), and its clear that someone really cared for this truck. There was not much chrome fitted to these workhorses but what is there remains in pretty good condition, including both bumpers. And if youre actually going to put it to work, youll be happy to find a heavy-duty bed mat for protection. Slip inside and have a seat. A comfortable cloth bench seat from a later truck makes this a first-class way to haul your gear and the red cloth upholstery looks immaculately maintained. Because this is a Silverado it is optioned with all the creature comforts, including air conditioning which still blows ice cold, plus an aftermarket AM/FM/CD stereo, cruise control, power windows, power locks, and a tilt wheel are all at your fingertips, further blurring the line between blue and white collar transportation. And we havent forgotten that this is a truck with a half- ton load capacity and so power steering and power brakes make it all manageable. The dash pad isnt even cracked and the sliding rear window provides a comfortable breeze for those days when A/C isnt needed. Given the condition of the interior, theres just no question the mileage shown is original. Open the hood and inspect the nicely detailed engine bay. This Silverado is equipped with the 350 cubic inch V8 that has been fitted to everything from Camaros to, well, pickup trucks. Theres more than enough power available if you choose to leave the motor bone stock like this one, which looks like it just rolled out of the showroom and still runs superbly. Its shockingly clean in there and maybe that chrome air cleaner adds a little sparkle. The 700R4 4-speed automatic transmission is also performing without complaint and there isnt a better transmission available to mate to the 350; after all, fuel mileage matters these days. Also take a look at the super clean undercarriage, where youll find no secrets, thanks to a lifetime in a warm climate, and again, it suggests that this truck has led a very good life. Polished Torque Thrust wheels add some flash to the bright red pickup, endowing it with a sporty demeanor and it carries recent blackwall radials all around. This is a great-looking truck today, and if these become collectable in the future, were pretty sure these handsome bed trucks will be first on the list. Call today!
You want cool? Youve got it with this 1969 Chevy C10 pickup. With a high-visibility paint job, a smooth small block V8 and a luxurious interior, they dont come any brighter than this. It also helps that this one has been expensively refreshed and carries a practical yet stylish 6-foot bed that can still work for a living. If youre looking for a seriously nice truck, they dont come much cleaner than this. Hugger Orange (and white) looks great on anything wearing a Chevy bowtie emblem, especially something born in the late 60s such as this. The investment in the sheetmetal is considerable given how nice the result looks, and the dedication that put this truck together shows, because the 6-year-old paint job still looks pretty darned good. A glance in all the nooks and crannies shows that it was a full cab-off job, because there are no traces of the original paint to be found anywhere. And thanks to the miracle of modern paints, itll probably look this good for decades. Add some bright stainless trim and chrome bumpers to break up all that orange, a neatly lettered tailgate that looks traditional, and a bed protected with a spray-in bedliner, and, well, you have one heck of a truck. The flashback to the 60s continues inside with cool orange houndstooth fabric inserts in the black vinyl bench seat. Workmanship is quite good and once youre inside, youll be impressed by the quality. Matching door panels and a set of plush black carpets add to the luxury-oriented vibe, and sharp-eyed viewers will spot details like a tilt steering column and an upgraded AM/FM/CD stereo system in the center of the dash. An array of factory gauges is included, and while theyre a little faded, the lenses are clear (the fuel and temperature gauges, plus the ammeter need to be checked). A factory steering wheel, a reproduction dash pad, and some heavy-duty rubber floor mats make this a truck that looks great but can be used every day if thats your thing. Much of this trucks driving pleasure comes from the 350 cubic inch V8 fitted between the fenders. It has a 1969 performance look, complete with an open-element Edelbrock air cleaner, Chevy Orange paint, and a set of matching black Edelbrock valve covers to make it look racy. Horsepower is enhanced by an Edelbrock 4-barrel carburetor and matching aluminum intake manifold, an HEI ignition system, and a set of long-tube headers finished in black to keep a low profile. It runs extremely well, smooth but torquey, and theres a lot of new equipment so its ready to run. Its backed by a stout TH350 3-speed automatic transmission and a 12-bolt rear, so you dont have to worry about breakage if you actually put it to work (this would be an awesome tow vehicle for your Camaro!). The underside is typical of a vehicle that has lived someplace warm, and has been finished with a light dusting of undercoating for a uniform look. The exhaust system has also been finished in satin black for a low-profile look, and there are fresh shocks all around. It drives superbly. A pair of glasspack-style mufflers give it a mellow exhaust note and factory-style Rally wheels are fitted with fat 265/60/15 white-letter radials for a great street stance. This is a well-built truck with great hardware and a brilliant paint job. The fact that it can also earn its keep around the house only makes it easier to get approval for the purchase. Call today!
If youre unhappy with your Chevelles lack of trunk space, allow us to suggest an alternative: this awesome Rally Red 1971 El Camino, complete with a 454 cubic inch big block under the hood, a 4-speed between the seats, and lots of options. Styling was a high-water mark for the 1971 A-bodies and many find them to be the most attractive of all. With a high-quality restoration that looks and drives extremely well, this El Camino belongs at the top of your shopping list if youre looking for fast yet practical fun. Looking extremely handsome in bright Rally Red with white SS stripes, this El Camino was repainted not too long ago and its holding up very well. Thanks to an exceptional frame-off restoration in 1989 and great care by a hobbyist, its working days are over, so shining up the paint on a Saturday afternoon is routine. Panel gaps are very good considering that this is half truck, and the fully functional cowl induction hood gives it an aggressive look. White SS stripes were added, along with appropriate SS badges in all the correct locations, completing the transformation. All the chrome and stainless, including the bed rails around the pickup bed, is in very good condition with few signs of hard labor behind it. The white vinyl top makes it look dressed up and aside from some checking on the hood, youd never know this restoration is 30 years old. Looking in the bed, you can see just how clean and well-maintained this car really is. The beautiful white interior is as nice as the body, with a pair of buckets flanking a center console and Hurst 4-speed shifter. Accurate door panels and new red carpets and headliner were installed at the same time and give the interior a sporty vibe; from behind the wheel, you cant tell its not a Chevelle. The options list is extensive, including the aforementioned console, power windows (including vent windows!), power locks, tilt wheel, and factory A/C, which is all-new but has never been charged. The dash is impressive, with functional gauges and a beautiful dash pad, and in the spirit of performance, theres a fully array of dials including a rare factory tach. The stereo has been upgraded to an AM/FM/cassette stereo head unit that fits well and they didnt hack up the dash. The engine is a stout LS4 454 cubic inch V8, rebuilt to LS6 specs and dressed for duty in the El Camino. With finned valve covers, factory cowl induction air cleaner, and original style exhaust manifolds, it could almost pass for an OEM installation. However, under the air cleaner lives an Edelbrock intake manifold, Rochester 4-barrel carburetor, upgraded cam, 10.5:1 compression pistons, and an HEI ignition system. A dual exhaust system gives it a fantastic big block bark, and the slick-shifting 4-speed manual transmission doesnt mind the occasional hard shift in the heat of combat. A heavy-duty 12-bolt rear end with an upgraded cover doesnt mind the horsepower one bit and the brakes were recently upgraded to 4-wheel discs. It rolls on a set of handsome 15-inch SS wheels wearing 235/60/15 white-letter radials. Look at the photos again. This is a clean, solid El Camino with big block power and a great paint job. For a fun, big block muscle car with enough practicality to work for a living, you could hardly do better than this great-looking 71 El Camino. Call today!
In 1976, when this Ford F150 Ranger XLT was built, the F-series was already on its way to becoming the best-selling vehicle in the world. Of course, thats easy to understand when they were as handsome and rugged as this long bed/regular cab example, which offers an appealing color combination, options like factory A/C, and a great-running 390 cubic inch V8. This vintage hauler offers just the right combination of functionality and flash, and the current condition is a wonderful testament to someones rather large investment in its care. The pretty Bahama Blue paint accentuates the trucks square-jawed look, and it looks like theres no project it cant handle. It also appears that this has always been a super clean original truck, because theres no evidence of panel replacements or significant metal surgery under the paint, and as a lifelong southern truck, rust is not really an issue. All the trim is in good original condition, including the cool stainless side molding that stretches the entire length of the truck, accentuating the length of the 8-foot bed. The front bumper is chrome and in pretty nice shape and the grille with its trademark high-mounted parking lights is instantly recognizable as a Ford from a mile away. In back, theres another shiny chrome bumper and the solid bed has just been finished with a non-skid bed liner material, making this truck ready to work or play. Oh, and a bed-mounted tool box helps keep it functional. The handsome blue crinkle cloth interior is original, but its still in good shape and probably shouldnt be restored. The bench seat wears funky 70s style patterns and shows that even a working class truck can have some style. The seat cover and door panel inserts are holding up well, while the gauges and instrument panel are also original and in very good condition. Ford gave F150 buyers a comprehensive set of instruments, but in 1974, things like A/C and an automatic transmission were expensive options (fortunately, this truck has both). Theres a newer AM/FM/CD stereo in the center of the dash feeding speakers in the doors, and it sounds impressive given the well-insulated cabin. Newer blue carpets certainly help with that and look great at the same time. 390 cubic inches is more than sufficient to get this truck moving in a hurry, and the engine bay itself is extremely clean and nicely detailed for a stock look. There are signs that some cosmetic clean-up was done a few years back, including nice Ford Blue paint on the air cleaner and valve covers, and basic black engine accessories like the massive A/C compressor. New hoses, plugs, wires and other maintenance items were installed recently, so it runs and drives beautifully, and theres a big aluminum radiator up front. A full dual exhaust system offers a great V8 rumble, which comes complements of new mufflers out back. The C6 3-speed automatic is virtually bulletproof and the chassis is proof enough that this is a clean truck from down south, one thats had a good amount of cash poured into it. Basic steel wheels with full wheel covers are factory-issue and carry 235/75/15 Michelin radials. If youre of a certain age, you grew up when these trucks were everywhere, but today nice ones are hard to find. Beautifully finished, surprisingly fast, and totally practical, this is an awesome truck at an awesome price. Call today!
You may note with some interest that trucks like this 1969 Chevrolet C10 sell faster than just about anything else we have in stock. Theyre handsome, rugged, and with the right upgrades, a ton of fun on the street (think: Camaro with a bed). So it is with some urgency that I ask you to look it over, then give us a call, because like those that have come before it this one surely wont last long. Lowered and bristling with horsepower, this slick C10 takes everything that was great about these trucks and turns it up to 11. Note the billet grille, the perfect stance, and the shaved rear bumper, all of which suggest theres more to this pickup than just hauling lumber. The sizzling bright red paint gives it a high-impact attitude that works neatly the aggressive details, making most folks do a double-take when they see it because it looks exactly right. Finish quality is good all around, not perfect, but nice enough to be worth of the attention that it generates on the street. A few chrome accents like the relatively fresh front bumper and high-mounted side mirror, as well as the billet grille insert, gives it a well-detailed look that will never go out of style. The bed is still ready to work, too, thanks to a spray-in bedliner that was color-matched to the bodywork. The handsome black interior keeps things subtle but on-point, using stock materials to emulate the factory look and tie it together with the exterior. A few modern details have been added in the interest of comfort and performance, most notably the white-faced gauges, a sporty 3-spoke steering wheel, and a tilt steering column, but it still feels like a vintage truck. The tooled vinyl seat cover is how it would have been originally and the red accents brighten up the interior nicely. Theres an aftermarket A/C unit under the dash, and it integrates so nicely youd almost think its an OEM installation. Theres also a powerful AM/FM/CD stereo neatly installed in the center of the dash, and it feeds new speakers in the door panels. New carpets, heavy-duty floor mats, and tinted windows round out the list of upgrades that make this truck a pleasure to drive. The snarling 350 cubic inch small block V8 would definitely be at home in an early Camaro, and this relatively lightweight pickup makes good use of the horsepower on tap. Its based on a 4-bolt block, and all the good stuff is here, including a Comp Cams valvetrain with a lopey camshaft, 76cc heads, a 760 Holley carburetor on a matching intake, and an HEI ignition system to light it up. It looks fantastic with Chevy Orange paint and a few polished aluminum dress-up pieces and chrome accessories. Long-tube headers dump into a custom Flowmaster dual exhaust system that tucks up into the frame for good ground clearance on this lowered pickup and produce an awesome soundtrack at full throttle. The 700R4 4-speed automatic transmission was built with performance in mind and includes a 2800 RPM TCI stall torque converter that makes it feel snappy around town. Theres also a rugged 12-bolt rear end, probably necessary with those giant rear meats, as well as a Bell Tech suspension that gives it that awesome stance. Add in a custom gas tank and those slick Torque Thrust B wheels for a traditional look, and it wears 235/60/15 front and 275/60/15 rear blackwall radials. If you like the look, youre going to love how it runs. Like I said, this truck probably wont last long, especially after the first guy comes in for a test drive. Call today!
In case you havent noticed, vintage trucks are red-hot right now, and those with something extra to offer, trucks like this awesome 1966 Chevrolet C10 pickup for instance, are at the very top of the charts. With a small block V8, sinister satin black paint, and a handsome interior, its a workhorse that has learned to dance. The blacked-out look works surprisingly well on the vintage C10 bodywork, and even with the low-gloss paint you can see that someone invested quite a bit of time in this truck. The satin paint has been applied over some very nicely done bodywork that retains all the dramatic creases and details that make these trucks so iconic. From the wrap-around hood treatment to the simple squared-off tailgate, this is one of the first trucks to make style a priority. Those bulging rear fenders help, too, giving it a muscular look that works rather well with the low-gloss paint. Of course, custom details are what set this particular truck apart, with some of the chrome being painted to match and some of it being refinished, including the grille and bumpers, so theres a little extra sparkle. The bed is beautifully finished with a dark stain and stainless hardware, with the sides being covered with spray-in bedliner material so itll look great for years to come. As brutal as the bodywork is, the interior is surprisingly upscale and refined. The original bench is finished in custom cloth and vinyl upholstery, with beautiful gray carpets and the door panels painted charcoal gray to match. The original instrument panel still has that cool flat pane of glass with all the needles stashed behind it, so it was easy to install a set of aftermarket gauges in there for a totally custom look. The 3-spoke steering wheel lives on a chrome tilt column, making this a very comfortable place to spend your time. Youll note that the shift quadrant now shows D-2-1, which comes complements of the TH350 3-speed automatic transmission now living in place of the original PowerGlide. An AM/FM/iPod stereo has been fitted in the original radios location and powers new speakers in a set of custom kick panels that almost look OEM. Power comes from a 350 cubic inch V8, and it fits like it was born under this trucks hood. That shouldnt be a surprise, since this truck likely carried a 283 from new, but the extra 67 cubes make a big difference in performance. A chrome air cleaner feeds an Edelbrock 4-barrel carburetor sitting on top of a matching intake manifold. Theres a bit of chrome dress up to go with the Chevy Orange paint, and the satin black inner fenders and firewall are tidy if not detailed for show. The undercarriage features long-tube headers feeding a throaty Flowmaster dual exhaust system gives it just the right sound, as well as Chevys long-arm rear suspension that rides rather well. Power steering and power front disc brakes make it easy to drive and there are fairly recent shocks all around that make this old truck feel a lot younger than it is. The look is completed by a set of blacked out Cragar aluminum wheels wearing very truck-like 31x10.50-15 General radials. You absolutely could not duplicate this truck for the asking price, and you wont find a cooler hauler for less cash anywhere. Affordable trucks just dont get much nicer. Call today!
This 1976 Ford F100 step-side pickup is certainly an unusual find, especially with that handsome black paint job, red interior, and a torquey 302 under the hood. With a great color combination and no signs of hard labor in its past, its a unique opportunity to pick up an often overlooked piece of Ford history, and at a great price point. Youve seen other mid-70s Ford pickups clattering and rattling down the interstate, held together with wire and duct tape, but you probably havent seen one this nice. From the shiny black paint, which is not quite how the factory did it, to the attractive stepside bed, this truck has been well maintained and nicely preserved almost from day one. The stepside bed gives it a rare and sporting attitude, as if those bulging fenders were there for performance reasons rather than convenience. Finish quality is quite nice for an old pickup, with the black paint applied professionally and to a higher driver-quality standard, and we love the way it looks. Theres a bit of chrome, including the front bumper thats probably original and the newer diamond-plate rear bumper. This was one of the last pickup lines with a real wood floor, and this one has been refinished to look slick, but its also ready for work. The beautiful red interior offers plush carpets and a fabric seat cover that gives the F-100 an upscale feel. The upholstered seat has been well-cared for, and it looks extra cool in the working-class pickup cab. Everything remains in good condition with very, very little wear, including the carpets. The wood-rimmed steering wheel helps class up the joint, and while column-shifted automatic transmission is a throwback to an earlier era, it moves through the gears neatly and fits this trucks personality just fine. The options list is light, as were many trucks from this era, but thats how it was with pickup trucks in the days before they were luxury cruisers, although an added set of gauges has been installed under the dash. There is no radio, but that means you can install the entertainment system of your choice in the factory dash position. Fords rugged and torquey 302 cubic inch V8 provides motivation, and it does just as good a job here as it did in the Mustangs where it was called the 5.0. Of course, its hard to leave a performance-oriented V8 alone, so it was recently rebuilt and fitted with a new Holley carburetor atop an Edelbrock intake, although both components have been hidden under a chrome open-element air cleaner. Matching chrome valve covers brighten up the engine bay, and the Ford Blue paint reminds you who built this one every time you open the hood. With a swell of torque and a wonderful sound from the headers and dual exhaust system, youll enjoy piloting this big truck as much as any vintage muscle car. The transmission was rebuilt at the same time as the engine, and the stock suspension still works well, both as a truck and as a fun vehicle to drive. As youd expect, the chassis is quite clean, showing only signs of age but not abuse. Four fat 235/75/15 Goodyear Wrangler radials have been fitted to a set of shiny aluminum bullet-hole wheels to complete the high-impact look. For those who appreciate something a little out of the ordinary, while also delivering plenty of performance and fun, this F-100 is for you. Step-sides dont pop up all that often, this one should fly out of our showroom! Call today!
With the handsome good looks of a Chevelle and the utility of a pickup, the El Camino offers the best of both worlds: performance and practicality. This 1968 Chevrolet El Camino has been built to further blur the lines that separate vehicles: performance, great looks, and comfort. The bodywork is nicely finished and the workmanship is shown to great effect thanks to the beautiful bright red paint with black SS stripes, which look just about right on this racy truck/car. These vehicles typically led harder lives than your average Chevelle, and finding a clean one, let alone investing enough to bring it to this condition, is tough. Gaps are good and a lot of time was invested in getting the body panels this straight when it was repainted a few years ago, and theres very little wear and tear beyond some polishing scratches that are just barely visible. The bed is protected by a hard-shell tonneau cover and the bed was refinished with gorgeous oak planks that look warm and inviting, but also mean the bed is best used as the worlds biggest trunk. Trim is bright and well maintained, with good chrome on the bumpers, a stock grille, and the trim around the bed is very nice, with no obvious dings or damage from use. A black vinyl top is a rarely-seen option but it looks remarkably good on this upscale El Camino. The black interior is almost entirely new and features a pair of neatly upholstered black buckets with red stripes that seem appropriate. Carpets, headliner, and door panels are reproduction pieces that look good and fit right, and the bucket seats make it feel spacious in the cab. A custom center console has a carbon fiber look and a Hurst shifter, which features a carbon fiber shift ball for a high-tech look. Factory gauges are joined by a column-mounted tach and auxiliary dials under the dash and the wheel is from Budnik, and it works well the carbon accents. Cold A/C is a nice touch in a car thats built to cruise, and you also get an AM/FM/CD stereo head unit that really fills the small cabin with sound. This El Camino has all the right stuff to make a first-rate hobby car. The engine is the original 327 cubic inch V8, which was recently rebuilt and runs extremely well. Its got the usual upgrades including an aluminum intake manifold, Holley 4-barrel carburetor, full roller valvetrain, MSD ignition, ported heads, and long-tube headers to help build torque. The engine bay is extremely sanitary and clean, with a lot of dress-up items such as those chrome valve covers and air cleaner as well as a custom serpentine belt drive with polished accessories. The transmission is a 4-speed manual, likely the cars original transmission, and it snaps through the gears with authority. Theres a recent Flowmaster dual exhaust system that gives it a great performance sound and the 12-bolt rear end feels like it has street-friendly gears inside. Handsome polished Torque Thrust wheels stuff the wheel wells, wearing big 225/70/15 BFGoodrich T/A radials. With a great deal of money spent recently, this is a good, clean El Camino thats ready to enjoy. Turn on the A/C, crank up your favorite tunes, and enjoy the ride. Call it a truck, call it a car, either way youre going to love this El Camino. Call us today!
Dont worry Ford fans, weve got you covered. While I dont know why more Chevys than Fords seem to have survived, that only makes this 1974 Ford F100 Ranger XLT more unique. Besides, big block V8 power in a tastefully designed wrapper never goes out of style, even if that wrapper has a pickup bed. This great-looking Ford has been treated well for the past 40 years and it shows. The two-tone paint is quite good and theres not much sign that this truck ever hauled lumber or bricks during the week or pushed a plow in the winter. In fact, the way it shines, Im betting that someone special-ordered this truck and kept it shined as polished as his pride-and-joy. These Fords are gaining popularity and they really are great-looking machines, rugged and tough-looking, but with enough style to look at home in a high-end restaurant parking lot. The bright trim strip along the flanks emphasizes the straight lines and good panel alignment, and youll be pleased to learn that the bumpers, grille, and all the lenses on this truck shine up nicely and give it a well-maintained look. The bed area is been protected with a drop-in bedliner, so you can still use this truck as designed and a set of handsome bed rails make it easy to secure the load. The interior is dressed in its best formalwear, with a new tan bench seat, matching door panels, and new tan carpets on the floor. For a little glitter, the door sills and hardware has a bright chrome shine and the three-spoke steering wheel has a matching leather wrap. Factory instruments offer a pretty comprehensive view of the engine, which is what you want in a pickup truck, and aside from slight faded lenses, theyre in great shape. The factory-installed AM/FM stereo lives in the center of the dash and still sounds decent, taking you back to a simpler time, which is the entire point of old trucks like this. Youll also be happy to see factory A/C on the options list, and this one is still equipped for R12 refrigerant (needs a recharge) so its particularly effective. Heavy-duty floor mats help protect the carpets, so dont be afraid to put this one to work now and then. And speaking of engine bays, the 390 cubic inch V8 under the hood was just tuned up and runs superbly. Torquey and with a great soundtrack to accompany it, the big block V8 moves the pickup truck easily, empty or full, and feels extremely torquey around town. Its a little grungy, but its all original, including the Ford Blue paint on the block itself and the factory-installed air cleaner up top. The A/C compressor dominates the top of the engine, but the aforementioned tune-up parts are clearly visible, and it has obviously been properly maintained over the years. Power steering and brakes mean its easy to maneuver, and it channels power through a freshly rebuilt 3-speed automatic transmission and a 9-inch rear end. Fords rugged Twin I-Beam front suspension is as tough as it comes, and the new dual exhaust system uses glasspack-style mufflers for a great V8 sound. The floors are remarkably clean, as you can see in the photos, and with flashy 15-inch chrome and 235/75/15 whitewall radials, it looks period-perfect. Now is the time to give the old Fords some credit, and few look as good as this two-tone F100. Call today!
Someone forgot to remind this 1992 Chevrolet C1500 that its a pickup truck. Somewhere along the way, it received a heart transplant that includes a supercharged crate motor and an athletic suspension that makes it more muscle car than utilitarian hauler. Finished in burgundy paint, this truck would ordinarily keep a low profile. However, that all changed with the addition of a cowl-induction hood and a set of custom silver SS stripes and a set of flames on the hood, all of which transform this former work truck into something special. Workmanship is quite good, with a fantastic shine to the finish and great attention to detail that includes the stripes on the roof and hard shell tonneau cover, all of which line up beautifully from panel to panel. The grille was borrowed from a 95 model and the rear bumper was ditched in favor of a custom roll pan that fits like it was born there. Shaved emblems give it a clean look, although custom ZZ430 emblems are on the doors, but well get to that in a moment. With just a bit of rake, this slick pickup will make you forget about your chores and instead encourages you to head out and have some fun. The interior is very much standard Chevy pickup, but its not like thats a bad thing. With handsome burgundy fabric on a split bench seat, it is comfortable and attractive for long hauls and given its condition, it has always been well-maintained. Original carpets and door panels reinforce that fact and its loaded with options: A/C, power windows and locks, a tilt steering column, and a decent AM/FM/cassette stereo system that still sounds good. A full set of Dakota Digital gauges replace the original dials and when you turn the key and see the dash light up, its pretty darned cool. Tinted windows give it a sinister look, and its probably safe to call the enclosed bed a giant trunk. And yes, thats a bottle of unused nitrous there in the back. The original engine was yanked in favor of a small block built into a ZZ430. Displacing 350 cubic inches and using fast-burn heads, 4-bolt mains, and a performance roller cam, youd think most guys would be satisfied. Instead, the fellow who built this truck added a Vortech supercharger, which pushes pressurized air through a custom Quick Fuel 4-barrel carburetor for instantaneous throttle response. The engine bay, even with the big blower, looks quite stock, which is always the hallmark of careful workmanship: preserving the OEM look and feel without going crazy with the shiny stuff. Dual electric fans on the giant radiator keep it cool even under boost. The 700R4 4-speed automatic transmission is a great complement to the boosted engine, keeping it in the sweet spot and pegging full boost with a quick downshift and the rugged truck rear end wont complain about the torque. The suspension has been lowered 2.5 inches in front and three inches in back to level it out a bit and the exhaust system is a great-sounding Flowmaster setup fed by ceramic-coated long-tube headers. Pretty polished Torque Thrust wheels add a performance look and carry 255/50/17 BFGoodrich radials that fill the trucks big wheel arches perfectly. A very neat truck with lots of power on tap and the suspension to use it. Yeah, itll still haul, but it would rather be chasing Mustangs. Call today!
We feel confident in saying that this is the finest 1971 Dodge D13 pickup truck on the planet. The recipient of a documented, cost-no-object frame-off restoration, its not only beautiful, but packs a stout 340 under the hood, a bunch of creature comforts like cold A/C, and a classic old-school look that Mopar fans will love. Trucks were getting a lot more modern-looking in 1971, but the Dodge retained its old look, and with the hindsight that the decades have brought us, it makes for a really attractive pickup. The bright Seafoam Green paint with a white roof is a period-perfect combination and the finish work is show-quality throughout. The truck was fully disassembled, the cab was removed from the frame, and every inch of metal that needed to be fixed or straightened was treated properly. Panel gaps are exacting, the big hood fits tight, and the finish is deep enough to look right on a show-winning Cadillac, not just a vintage pickup. The white grille up front is an old-school look that works exceptionally well on the D13 and all the weather seals are new, so it closes up tightly. Theres a polished tool box in the bed, which is home to a modern fuel cell, and the floor is diamond-plate, although were pretty sure this truck is just too pretty to do any heavy hauling these days. At first glance, youre probably thinking thats a nicely restored stock interior, and youre partly right. The bench seat and body-colored door panels are pretty much the way it came from the factory, but look again at the stitching on the seat, the handsome four-spoke steering wheel on a tilt column, and the under-dash A/C unit. The factory gauges are handsome laid out in a long panel that should look familiar to any Mopar fan, with a tach neatly installed in the dash just to the right. A Sony AM/FM/CD stereo head unit slots into the dash and sounds great in the newly insulated cab, and just check out how bright the courtesy lights are, something you almost never see. Everything in the truck is show quality and the attention to detail is very impressive. A 340 cubic inch V8 was rebuilt and dropped between the fenders, giving this pickup the moves of a muscle car. Its got less than 500 miles on the build and with a 4-barrel carburetor (although its plumbed up to the engine bay should one want to switch to a fuel injected set-up) and a decent cam inside, its plenty potent to move the pickup without apparent effort. Its beautifully detailed, too, with the bright Hemi Orange engine glowing from within the turquoise engine bay and all the ancillary parts wear factory-style finishes. A reproduction decal on the air cleaner looks right and niceties such as power steering and brakes have been added to make it easy to drive. Youll note a giant aluminum radiator up front, all-new A/C components with R134a refrigerant, and beautifully refinished exhaust manifolds. Its backed by a TorqueFlite 3-speed automatic and an 8.75-inch rear end with 3.25 gears inside, so its easy to live with and doesnt get busy on the highway. The chassis is fully restored and is beautifully framed by the body-colored floors. Theres also a coil spring front suspension, disc brakes, new exhaust, and fresh shocks, plus a full-sized spare hanging out back. The stance was tweaked just a bit and youve probably already noticed the custom-made wheels with dog dish hubcaps and trim rings, designed for slightly wider 235/75/15 front and 31x10.5R15 rear Toyo blackwall radials. If you want the nicest D13, heck, one of the nicest pickups of any kind weve ever featured, this is it. Fully documented with receipts and photos, its every bit as nice as you think it is.

Ready to win some trophies? This 1965 Chevrolet C10 will do it for you. With a gorgeous frame-off restoration, its a subtle resto-mod that skillfully accents all that was great about Chevys 60s haulers. And now that you mention it, they do make pretty darned good cruisers, too. You want to get noticed, dont go with flames and body mods, do it with skill then paint it bright red. That was obviously the mantra behind this build, which combines impressive craftsmanship and time-consuming attention to detail. Fit and finish are exemplary and if this truck ever spent days out in the field or on the job site, all evidence of it has been completely erased by the build. Instead, the sheetmetal is straight enough to use as a mirror, the red paint makes other red cars in our showroom look faded, and every edge was honed to a sharp crease that reflects light in a most impressive way. Oh, and all the trim remains intact; its fully restored, but its all there, glittering against the paint and accenting both the original design and the stance. In particular, the side trim remains as straight as a ruler and shows off a crisp white insert that looks right on the bright red pickup. Theres also a freshly restored wooden bed that warms up the stark paint job and offers body-colored rub strips that have yet to see a drop of rain or a piece of cargo. You should probably consider keeping it that way, because its seriously nice. They worked the same kind of magic inside, where theres a gorgeous bucket seat setup with late-model chairs and a custom center console. The two-tone leather has a bit of patina thats absolutely ideal for the pickup, a rugged look that was surely done intentionally. Two-tone door panels were created to match, as was the center console, which features a storage compartment, twin cup holders, and a built-in Garmin GPS and back-up camera. The single-pane instrument panel covers only the basics but does it so well that you wont even notice, and that wood-rimmed steering wheel is a cool take on a factory piece. Nicely integrated A/C is a nice addition that makes this truck easy to drive, and the entertainment system is an AM/FM/CD/iPod/satellite stereo with speakers neatly stashed throughout the passenger compartment. Its all just beautifully done. The fresh 383 cubic inch stroker motor features a Holley 4-barrel carburetor on a high-rise intake, a big cam that helps build torque, and a few well-chosen aluminum bits for contrast. Service access remains quite good, and while everything is new, its also smart since the truck really was built to drive. Power steering and brakes are worthy upgrades when youre reworking an entire vehicle, and while the body was off the frame, the entire chassis was painted satin black. The suspension is largely stock, although it has been lowered a bit to give it that awesome rake and power front disc brakes were added for safety. A fresh dual exhaust system sounds fantastic behind the warmed-over small block, and between the 700R4 4-speed automatic overdrive transmission and the rugged 12-bolt rear end, cruising is effortless. Color-matched Rally wheels have a vintage look, especially with the polished trim rings, and are wrapped with fat 225/70/15 Michelin radials that have enough sidewall to make this truck look like a truck. Theres obviously a ton of money wrapped up in this build, but the effort will pay off handsomely for the next lucky owner. Call today!
Cool sport trucks arent a new invention, but many times theyre so over-styled that they stop being practical as trucks, and whats the point of that? This 1986 Chevy C10 looks like those pickups you see on magazine covers, but can still do a few odd jobs around the house and drives well enough to take cross-country. OK, so the ride height and oversized wheels suggest that you wont want to be hauling gravel with this one, but you cant argue with the look. The simple white paint isnt actually paint, but primer thats been flattened and sanded to give it a ton of patina that contrasts brilliantly with the slammed stance. The look is understated, yet makes a bold statement, and theres just no way to ignore this truck when it shows up. But dont make the mistake of thinking this is some junkyard dog, because the sheetmetal underneath is quite good and you can easily tell that the weathered effect is totally intentional. Look closely and youll see that there was a lot of care involved in making it fit together, although perfection wasnt necessarily the goal. Remarkably, this truck gets its trick look with only a few alterations, including some shaved badges, and the only notable non-OEM piece of hardware on the truck is the rear roll pan out back. Much of the trim is original, including the front, and youll note that there are no identifiers anywhere on this truck, not even a bowtie emblem on the grille. In back youll find a nicely done spray-in bedliner as well as the air ride suspension system and Optima battery. This truck was an up-market Silverado from the start, so that means its loaded with options and a comfortable cockpit is part of the deal. A set of production buckets with custom black and orange upholstery work with OEM door panels that are in good order, and the combination works perfectly with the white paint. Gauges have been upgraded to a full array of white-faced Auto Meter dials in a custom panel that fits into the original dash, and theres a wood-rimmed wheel on the original tilt column. A new AM/FM/CD/iPod head unit and speakers throughout the interior ensure youll be entertained while you cruise and power windows and locks are part of the package. New carpets, custom kick panels, and a trick shifter all give it a unique feel when youre behind the wheel. A 383 cubic inch stroker motor was built with the good stuff so this lowrider runs as great as it looks. Aluminum heads, an Edelbrock intake, ProForm 4-barrel carburetor, and electronic ignition all make it feel more like a Camaro and less like a pickup truck. Its nicely dressed with some aluminum valve covers, but for the most part, it was built to run. Obviously the inner fenders were removed to make room for the lowered stance and giant wheels, but the hardware is familiar, including a big aluminum radiator and a GM power master cylinder. The exhaust is brand new and uses turn-downs ahead of the rear axle for obvious reasons, and the air ride suspension was professionally installed so that it rides well and works like it should. A TH350 3-speed automatic spins a 10-bolt rear end, and the reliable powertrain means that cruising should always be a pleasure. It also appears to be wearing new shocks all around, plus those giant 24-inch Vision wheels with 255/60/24 performance radials. Weve got plenty of cool trucks in stock, but few of them combine the slick looks, functionality, and mind-blowing stance of this C10. Call today!
This 1959 Chevrolet Apache is a truck that needs no excuses. It looks great, it packs a fresh 283 cubic inch V8, and its still practical enough to actually use as a truck. If you want a do-everything hobby vehicle, you could certainly do worse than this black stepside. Today, honest vintage pickup trucks that are still ready, willing and able to go to work are getting harder to find all the time. Fortunately, this one is ready to rock and thats all original steel that has never required major surgery, and the black paint shows it off to great effect. Instead, it has been properly maintained and lightly used for the past 53 years, and presents in solid condition today. The doors open and close solidly, the hood fits well, and the whole truck looks eager to get back to work. In the bed, youll find a proper-looking bed thats finished in basic black, not polished like a dance floor, so you wont be afraid to use it. Theres also a good bit of chrome on the top-of-the-line Apache, including the ornate grille, big bumpers, and those cool emblems on the front fenders, all of which are in good condition overall, although the rear bumper is showing its age. <BR The interior has been very nicely finished, and shows you just how basic these machines were when they were new. Forget luxury, these were little more than tools and nobody in 1958 was buying a pickup truck without needing to haul something. The seat features a new tan cloth cover, theres a correct rubber floor mat on the floor, and the door panels are finished to match the seat. The dash features a single stylish triangular pod for the speedometer, along with four smaller auxiliary gauges that are built right in, and theres an auxiliary gauge under the dash. Youll also note that it has the original three-on-the-tree 3-speed manual transmission, something familiar to more than a few of us who learned to drive out in the country. The big steering wheel makes it easy to wheel the truck around and its surprisingly nimble given its utilitarian roots. The only notable upgrade is a new AM/FM stereo system that has been nicely integrated into the original dashboard. Pop that big hood and youll be pleasantly surprised to find a 283 cubic inch V8, which was on the menu in 1958. Nicely detailed with Chevrolet Orange paint along with Chevrolet script valve covers and a chrome air cleaner, it looks right at home in the big engine bay. It uses an Edelbrock 4-barrel carburetor to help build power, but the overall look is very much in tune with the period. Underneath, its exceptionally clean, from the frame to the suspension. A fresh dual exhaust system gives it a little bit of a growl, and there are no signs that this was ever a rusty truck. Manual drum brakes do their job properly and live inside a set of newer Rally wheels with fat 15-inch BFGoodrich T/A radials. Clean, honest trucks like this are getting hard to find, but theyre worth the search. Imagine driving it to work on nice days, then hitting Home Depot or the local garden center on the weekends. Just because its old and cool doesnt mean it cant earn its keep. This Apache is a solid, reliable, well-maintained truck thats ready for another 58 years of work.
Look, you are either going to think this 1959 Chevrolet 3100 pickup is the coolest thing youve ever seen, or youre just not going to get it. If youre a member of the holy cow, thats incredible! group, then youre in for a treat, because this might just be the worlds coolest sleeper. With a twin-turbo LS motor, 600 horsepower, and that awesome patina look, this truck is rolling cognitive dissonance. Wow! Patina trucks are all the rage right now, but theres a fine line between patina and rusty. Fortunately, this truck doesnt have to tread that line, because all the patina you see was applied by a very talented painter, not Mother Nature. So no worries about something falling off as you rip off 10-second quarter-mile passes. Its convincing and show-goers are going to be tempted to rub their fingers over the mottled surface, and what could be better for keeping a low profile? Chevy fans will recognize that theres a 55 front clip on this 59 truck, and it looks great. Theres a cool faded Salt Flats Recovery sigil on the doors, and it ties in neatly with the fake tow hook mounted in the bed. This truck sure looks like it should be dragging some lakes speedster home. Nothing was shaved or deleted, so you get a stock bumper with plenty of wear and tear, a white grille that hasnt been painted in decades, and factory-style mirrors. But if you look closely, you might notice those oversized rear fenders, but the illusion is so convincing that most folks wont even give it a second glance. Thats why this truck is so cool. The interior is anything but patina, and youll be happy to spend plenty of time there. A custom Glide Engineering bench seat was upholstered with cloth inserts to resemble an indian blanket, there are bamboo floor mats, and everything was covered in olive-colored leather for a very upscale look. The custom gauge panel is full of white-faced Nordskog instruments and the rest of the dash was smoothed and finished in more olive green, with an A/C unit tucked underneath. A floor shifter, push-button start, and a tilt column with a billet wheel all work to make it feel rather modern from behind the wheel. No radio, but once you hear this monster run, youll never think about it again. Check it out, its just gorgeous! The engine is a 4.8 liter LS V8 thats being force-fed by a twin-turbo system built by Morgan Performance Fabrication. Each 60-1 T04S blower is capable of supporting 600 horsepower by itself and with that beautiful stainless plumbing, the engine bay is a work of art as well as highly functional. Dual air-to-water intercoolers work with a Bosch pump and a giant heat exchanger to keep everything cool and 60 lb-hr injectors keep it well-fed. Theres a giant aluminum radiator up front and with custom programming, its easy to drive, docile, and very user-friendly. But open it up, and the 3-inch exhaust roars and this incredible hauler gets up and hauls! Fortunately, youve got a tubular 1969 Camaro front suspension with coil-overs to keep it pinned down, and the 4L65E transmission was rebuilt 600 miles ago to handle the engines output. In back theres a Ford 9-inch that was custom narrowed and filled with 3.50 gears and held in place with a set of Caltrack traction bars. Fortunately, theres also a disc brake at all four corners and a big fuel cell hanging out back. Plain-Jane steelies are the absolute right choice, although the 12-inchers out back will make a statement to anyone paying attention. This might just be the coolest vintage pickup weve ever seen. If this is your particular brand of lunacy, give us a call, because things like this dont last very long. Call today!
If Americas favorite off-roader is the Jeep, then Japans is the Toyota FJ. But this Japanese-American hybrid 1966 Land Cruiser successfully crosses the Pacific with its box-shaped bodywork thats instantly identifiable on six of the seven continents, plus an equally bulletproof driveline that will take it just about anywhere. Its hard to call the FJ styled because its simply the bare minimum required to carry people and gear to inhospitable places. However, thats the appeal, a go-anywhere, do-anything kind of vehicle that has become iconic with its abilities. The light blue paint is older, but combined with the white top and fender flares, it actually looks awesome. Fit and finish are what you get when you go off-roading, with decent but not perfect paint and Toyota build quality that you can still feel when you slam the door. Its got the right look for a vehicle thats used as intended, not relegated to the show field, and we like it a lot better that way. The body is quite solid with no issues in the usual places, and the truck obviously hasnt been beaten to death off-road. Theres a heavy-duty bumper up front ostensibly designed to push large objects out of its way, and a winch means youre always able to get out of a jam. Out back, theres a full-sized spare and a hitch, making this a truck that really can do it all. The interior is nowhere near as bare-bones as youd expect, with comfortable bucket seats and a pair of folding jump seats in back. Sure, all the hard panels like the doors and dash are painted to match the body, but its easy to get comfortable in there for long hauls along the trail. All the controls are original Toyota, including the big steering wheel that makes it easy to put the front wheels exactly where you want them and a column-mounted shifter for the manual gearbox. The factory gauges are still in place, too, and they all seem to work properly to keep an eye on the engines vitals. The white canvas top and doors open up for alfresco motoring, or you can remove them in a matter of minutes to go completely open. Youll probably find theres no better vehicle for tailgating than this! At some point, the original inline-six was yanked and replaced, but the original character and durability is completely unchanged. Matching numbers isnt really a thing with these trucks and the quality of the work means that this off-roader is still just as reliable as it was originally. Clearly a lot of work went into the freshening, as it has a recent tune up, new fuel pump and carburetor, and all new fluids throughout. The industrial-strength air cleaner remains in place and the radiator is big enough for a semi-tractor. Underneath, its 100% Toyota reliability, with original axles fore and aft suspended on a 2-inch lift that looks awesome and adds ground clearance, and with 4.11 gears inside, its zippy around town and capable in the dirt. Cool Blacked-out Ultra Motorsports wheels have an industrial look and carry giant 33x10.5-15 BFGoodrich radials that look like they could climb Everest. Go ahead, take this one out and tear up some dirt, it wont mind. Icons are like that, and with unbeatable reliability, youll always be the first to the top of the hill. Call today!
Trucks with hot-rod sensibilities are always popular, and someone has done some wonderful things with this 1966 Chevrolet C10. From the cool old-school hot rod shop look, to the perfect stance and the attractive, feature-laden interior, this truck not only looks cool but drives like it should. The mid-60s were a good time to be building trucks, with high style making them much more than basic tools. The stylized and folded lines of this C10 are shown to great effect thanks to a simple white paint job that was very nicely done a few years ago. As a result, neat details, particularly the crease the runs around the center of the cab, are highlighted in a bold way. Service stations in the 60s had trucks like this out front all the time, and if you were a regular at the tracks, trucks with an emblem on the door were a great way to show off your racing teams colors. Add in the forward cant of the fenders that give it a feeling of motion, and you have a truck that looks great no matter what you do to it. There are a few areas that have been touched up and definitely some signs of use, but they seem to add to the trucks authenticity because nobodys shop truck was expected to be perfect. The bed has a welcoming look that isnt quite patina but isnt over-done, and the spray-in bedliner on the sides means its still durable enough to do some work. The interior also got a thorough once-over, including a modern cloth bench seat from a late-model pickup. The attractive cloth upholstery in two shades of tan is surprisingly sophisticated and the workmanship is OEM so you know itll hold up over the long haul. Slightly darker tan carpets on the floor add some contrast and help control noise and heat and custom checkerboard door panels tie it all together with a 60s performance vibe. The factory gauges are still in place and if I had to guess, Id sat that light blue steering wheel is also very intentional, reminiscent of the Gulf Sports colors used at Le Mans. A Kenwood AM/FM/CD stereo with a touch screen provides entertainment and its quiet enough inside to actually enjoy it. They went the extra mile to make sure everything was professionally finished, so its an easy place to spend your spare time and other vintage truck owners will admire your good taste. The powertrain is simple, proven, and powerful, with a throttle-body injected 350 cubic inch Chevy V8 at its core. The engine is stock and the grunge almost makes it look like it was born there, but there are some new parts. Service access is quite good, and with a new alternator and power master cylinder, its ready to drive. Fuel injection means its ready to go any time and starting is always drama-free, and you probably wont be disappointed by the smooth idle, hot or cold. A 700R4 4-speed automatic transmission diverts the torque to a heavy-duty rear end thats likely the trucks original setup and the dual exhaust system is tucked in beside it. Color-matched Rally wheels look right and reinforce the vintage vibe with a set of spinners and fat 235/70/15 white-letter radials. A very slick old pickup that has the moves of a much younger, lighter machine. Easy to drive and low-maintenance, its the kind of hobby vehicle we all wish we could own. Call today!
