Classic Car Overview
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!
