If you grew up during the 70s, youll be relieved to know that Chevy trucks from that era are finally getting their due for something that weve always known: theyre just flat-out cool. Basic and rugged, sure, but also ruggedly handsome in a leathery, hardened kind of way thats all business. Dressing them up with beautiful paint and a potent 350 V8 sure helps as well, and in the case of this short bed/regular cab 1977 Chevrolet C/K 10 Cheyenne 4x4, it shows that theres practically no way to build an unattractive one. They ALWAYS look good, and the really dialed-in ones like this tough-as-nails hauler are head and (broad) shoulders above the rest. At first glance, this might just look like another nicely preserved Chevy C/K-series pickup, another prime example from the surging-in-popularity Rounded Line of GM trucks. Youd mostly be right, but once you get a little closer and youll discover that its a lot nicer than most of its contemporaries. The bright silver finish was quite nicely done to a strong driver-quality throughout, with a deep shine that looks great on the chiseled good-looks of this vintage pickup. It was resprayed not long ago, and because its been driven and enjoyed a little since then there are some minor signs of use, but unless youre looking for a trailer queen, we cant imagine anyone would be unhappy with this tough guy in their garage. The trucks curb appeal is turned up to 11 with the addition of a cowl induction hood, an LED lightbar mounted in between the bumper guards up front, a billet grille, and those single-step, heavy-duty step bars at the flanks. Blinding white paint on the cab roof, hood stripes (which are decals, should you want to remove them), and outlining the Chevrolet block letters on the tailgate all do a great job to break up that monochromatic silver finish just enough to make this truck look a little sportier than most. A black-and-dark gray spear pinstripe was added down the length of the profile, making this Cheyenne look more upscale (it is a top-of-the-line Cheyenne after all), and custom 4x4 and Big 10 decals at the back of the bed look very cool. A custom, heavy-duty rear bumper with integrated LED lights was fitted out back, and to protect it from the elements it was painted with a durable, textured paint that wears like iron (its the same shade as the rest of the truck), and that paint was continued onto the tailgate for the same purpose. The bed, which is protected with a black spray-in bedliner is incredibly straight and free from the dents and dings that plagues most trucks of this vintage. A shiny diamond-plate tailgate matches the trucks exterior chrome, four matching tie-down hooks were installed atop the bed rails, and a heavy-duty tow bar under the rear bumper means this truck is equipped to haul away half of Home Depot. A red interior works well with the silver paint, and the vinyl bench seat is a throwback to the era when this truck was brand new. The upholstery was redone not long ago and remains in great order and pretty accurately replicates when you might have received when you ordered a new upscale Cheyenne back in the 70s, complete with matching door panels, carpets, and dash pad. The silver instrument panel is fitted with a comprehensive array of factory gauges that keep an eye on the 350 engine up front, and a later-model steering wheel was added atop a tilt column for added comfort for the driver. Options include factory A/C (needs a service), seatbelts, auxiliary 12-volt plugs, and an original AM/FM radio thats remarkably still functioning. The taut headliner above is likely original to the truck and in great shape, simple rubber mats protect the black carpets, and the sliding rear window means you dont have to necessarily rush to get the A/C working again. Powering this big truck is a strong-running, hard-pulling, and great-looking 350 V8 small block thats more than up to the task of pulling this 4x4 through the modern world. Topped by a 4-barrel carburetor, its a torquey, eager partner whether youre on-road or off. It looks mostly stock and keeps a relatively low profile when youre just driving around and it runs superbly, as youd expect. The engine bay looks slick, with Chevy Blue engine paint on the block, valve covers, and intake, theres an original open-air and snorkeled air cleaner up top, and shiny black inner fenders and an original silver firewall that still proudly displays its factory markings. Theres a giant radiator up front to keep the small block from getting cranky and long-tube headers were added to help it breathe, feeding a true-dual exhaust system underneath featuring throaty-sounding Cherry Bomb chambered mufflers. The chassis is pretty original so its not detailed, but you can easily see that this truck lived someplace warm its entire life and new components like fresh shocks and a big steering stabilizer up front really pop out. A TH350 3-speed automatic transmission feeds the original transfer case and heavy-duty axles, the manual locking hubs mean someone was serious about off-road traction, while power steering and power front disc brakes vastly improve the pickups road manners. Factory Rally wheels look great and help offset the weight of those meaty Mickey Thompson Deegan 38-inch all-terrain radials. So, for all you fans of big, burly 70s pickups, this one offers killer looks, strong V8 power, and a large dose of practicality, too. Call now!
