Classic Car Overview

Pickup trucks are undoubtedly one of the fastest-growing segments of the hobby, and its no secret why. Big power, lots of parts and knowledge around, and unmatched practicality that makes them an easy purchase to justify, all which make this 1974 Chevrolet C10 Custom Deluxe 454 worthy of a closer look. With a 454 big block under the hood, a long bed out back, and an uber-comfortable A/C interior, this red-hot Chevy pickup is real winner. Remember seeing trucks like this around town, maybe loading up at the hardware store or pulling a trailer? A lot of us do, which makes these Chevys in particular a sentimental favorite. The Hugger Orange finish is a bit more high-impact than the original Crimson Red and White color combination this C10 was born with, but it sure gives the old pickup a great look thats right for just about any occasion today. Finished not all that long ago, the paint still shows very well today, with a great shine, depth, and luster you dont typically expect on a long bed workhorse. Then again, this is now a former workhorse, as the trucks thorough restoration has given it a new lease on life as a pleasure cruiser from here on out, and because it was finished to such a strong driver-quality level, its going to look really good in its new role. Sure, its not perfect, but the shiny, glossy finish is definitely dialed-in, just like it was almost 50 years ago when the truck was new, and it really looks great with no profile trim to break it up. Instead, the vibrant color does all the talking, and with a billet grille, cowl hood, and roll pan out back, it looks real slick and modern, too. The bed is in good condition (albeit not overly detailed), indicative of a truck that hasnt been used for work, and comes equipped with a black vinyl cover that finished the look. The handsome tan interior is in great condition as well, featuring a later-model bucket seat and folding armrest set-up thats been upholstered in the kind of soft cloth that made your grandpas couch the most comfortable thing you ever sat it. Sure, that might make things a tad bit dated inside, but Ill sacrifice aesthetics for comfort anytime, and with matching door panels, dashboard, and carpets, the cab looks just right. Light woodgrain trim throughout certainly helps with the theme, and all the exposed steel was painted orange to match the exterior and it really pops. Sporting things up a bit, a leather wrapped LeCarra steering wheel was atop a tilt column, aluminum pedals were installed to match, and a tachometer was mounted ahead of the driver. All the factory gauges are still in place and they do a great job minding the big block under the hood, and the factory air conditioning is blowing nice and cold. A Sony AM/FM/Cassette was installed and power speakers in the kick panels, and if you want the neighbors to hear your favorite CCR song, the sliding rear window still slides easy. Everything inside has obviously been very well cared for, and although it may feel a bit more vintage compared to the exterior, its still a well-executed and very comfortable cabin. You could get an Inline-6 six in your full-sized Chevy, but most guys opted for V8 power. Youll find a 454 cubic inch V8 under the hood here, which is a great choice for the guy who just wants to drive his truck and still be able to haul half of Home Depot away. Its a strong motor thats running great today, complete with a Holley 4-barrel carburetor and Edelbrock air-gap intake up top, an open-element air cleaner, and a pair of polished valve covers. Otherwise, it appears fairly stock, which is a good thing for reliability and you know that it hasnt been abused. Steel-braided fuel lines, upgraded plugs/wires show signs of a recent tune-up, and long-tube headers feed into a throaty dual exhaust system that helps the big block breathe easy and sound very robust. A TH400 3-speed automatic transmission and heavy-duty 12-bolt rear end with 3.73 gears complete the powertrain, and the underside of this truck is in good order if not totally detailed and shiny. Flashy MB Motoring wheels upgrade the truck and set the stance, and they carry big 275/45/20 Goodyear radials that fill the fenders perfectly. For not a lot of money, you can own a sweet-running and killer-looking vintage truck with a big block V8, and if anyone complains, just show them how much work it can do on the weekends. Call today!
