1972 Chevrolet C/K Truck Cheyenne
Truck Car for sale in Friendswood, Texas 77546
Friendswood, TX 77546
From around 1956 until the mid 1980s, Dodge, Plymouth and even Chrysler squads were the most ubiquitous police cars in North America. In fact, the biggest department, the NYPD, used Plymouth and Dodge squads almost exclusively until the rear-drive M body car was finally axed in 1989.
The no-frills Savoy two-door sedan was home to another engine of considerable repute, the infamous 413 Max Wedge, a Super Stock monster block Chrysler introduced in the spring of 1962.
Classic Car Overview
More photos coming of this hard to find (unmolested) 1972 CHEVROLET CHEYENNE LWB with PS/PB, A/C, (original) 350ci, TH400 Auto trans, that I acquired in May of 2019 from a seller in California. I have a documented history on this truck that was purchased in Midland Texas in 1972, traded in in 2010 and sold to a collector in NM. This collector rebuilt the engine and then sold on Barrett Jackson to a collector in Napa Valley CA. I have a stack of papers and receipts that document all the work and new parts put on the truck, from weather strips, Vintage Air A/C, carpet and interior items, to engine parts and just inspected and serviced rear diff, u-joints, all seals and TH400. All of these total to more than 13,000 dollars. Yes - it is still a ways from being a totally restored show truck, but it does make one heck of a nice daily driver and I take it to local car shows weekly. I drive this truck daily to work and get tons of looks because of how clean, original and unmolested this truck is. It runs and drives fantastic - even better than it would have been in 1972 - IMO.
Notable restoration and upgrades include Vintage Air Gen IV A/C, dynamat interior, total restoration on interior, 100% aluminum fuel tank under the bed, 3-core aluminum radiator with separate core for transmission cooler, undercoating, full-size spare with jack and lug wrench, and finally a gorgeous Gaylord (locking) bed cover.
Mechanically this truck is near perfect. Absolutely nothing wrong (no leaks of any kind) and I’ve driven this truck to my property just outside San Antonio several times (400 miles round trip @ 12mpg). Brakes have just been completed (all four), the engine is quiet and there is very little road and wind noise. Paint is in good shape with very good shine along with all the trim work. Yes, there are a few paint scratches and chips, but all are hardly noticeable. All chrome is spotless.
If you are looking for a great (unmolested) truck that doesn't require much of anything to do but upgrade and tinker, this is the truck for you. I’m selling because this truck has fulfilled its purpose for me, allowed me to get into a classic at a fair price, had tons of fun showing the truck and learning about mechanics. Also, I've also just acquired a 1971 truck just like this one that I'm now restoring.
If you visit the recent 2020 Barrett Jackson Scottsdale auction - you can see what classic trucks just like this one are selling for. There's no question C10 trucks are in high demand and no matter what, you can expect the value of this truck to increase greatly over the coming years.
