Classic Car Overview

Ready to turn some heads? This 1965 Chevrolet C10 will do it for you. With a comprehensive restoration skillfully completed several years ago, 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 very good, especially when you consider that its not necessarily recently fresh build, 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 and the care and maintenance bestowed on this beauty in the subsequent years. Instead, the sheetmetal is straight enough to be proud of, the bright finish on the red paint almost makes other red cars in our showroom look faded, and every edge was honed to a sharp crease that reflects light in an impressive way. Most of the trim remains intact and its fully restored and polished up, 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 they decided to forgo painting the interior strip in white like most C10s you find, and we love the commitment to uniformity. Theres also a smoothed tailgate and neat wooden bed protected by a tonneau cover that warms up the stark paint job and offers a touch of class and sophistication to this street brawler. You should probably consider keeping it that way, because its seriously nice. They worked the same kind of magic inside, where theres a gorgeous bench seat setup with matching door panels, carpets, and headliner/cabliner. The purple cloth upholstery is all custom and adds comfort and style thats absolutely ideal for the pickup, a bright look that was surely done intentionally in the 1990s, albeit it is a bit dated today. Custom door panels were created to match, as was the headliner and fully-encompassing cabliner, which wrap the driver in warm, comforting 90s goodness that feels great behind the wheel. The single-pane instrument panel covers only the basics but does it so well that you wont even notice, but just in case, a couple auxiliary units were added under the dash for further information, and that late-model steering wheel and eight-ball shifter on the tilt column feel great in the drivers hands. Quirky but cool peppermint knobs manage all of the switches and controls these days, and the entertainment system is a vintage AM/FM/Cassette stereo with speakers neatly stashed throughout the passenger compartment. A tad dated? Sure. But its supremely comfortable and just beautifully done. Theres a giant motor under the hood, but its probably not what you think. Borrowed from a Cadillac, a 500 cubic inch V8 motor was neatly fitted as if it always belonged, and it features a 4-barrel carburetor on a performance intake for a good power and torque, and its adorned with shiny chrome valve covers and a matching air cleaner for contrast inside the detailed black engine bay. Service access remains quite good, and while everything isnt stock, its also smart since the truck really was built to drive, and what pulls better than a Cadillac? Power steering and brakes are worthy upgrades when youre reworking an entire vehicle, and while the truck was being restored, the entire chassis was looked after and it shows in how solid it really is. The suspension is largely stock, although it has been lowered a bit to give it that awesome rake and power brakes were added for safety. A fresh Flowmaster dual exhaust system sounds fantastic behind the warmed-over Caddy block, and between the TH400 3-speed automatic transmission and the rugged rear end, cruising is effortless. Flashy American Racing Torque Thrust wheels have a vintage look that looks great on practically anything, and even more so on a slick truck, and are wrapped with fat 235/60/15 front and 295/50/15 rear Mastercraft radials that have enough sidewall to make this truck look like a proper 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!
