You want cool? Well, now you've got it with this dialed-in 1969 Chevrolet C10 Custom pickup. With a high-visibility, classic two-tone paint scheme, a powerful 454 big block V8, a luxurious A/C interior, and a host of choice options at the ready, they don't come much brighter than this. It also helps that this one has been expertly restored and can still work for a living, although we have a sneaking suspicion this old-timer's hauling days are over. Now it's time for the golden years, and this C10 has got the looks and the hardware to be shown off with great pride.
If you're looking for a seriously nice 'Action Line' Chevrolet truck, they don't come much cleaner than this beautiful long bed. Olive Green (and white) looks great on anything wearing a Chevy bowtie emblem, especially something born in the late '60s like this Glamour Line hauler. During the restoration, it's fairly obvious that the investment in the sheetmetal was considerable given how nice the result looks, and the dedication that put this truck together shows, because the paint job looks sweet today. A glance in all the nooks and crannies shows that the job was done right, because there are no traces of the original paint to be found anywhere. And thanks to the miracle of modern paints, it'll probably look this good for decades. We love that they went back to the original color combination, and although it's not a perfect paint job (who wants one anyway, us truck lovers actually want to drive these Chevys, not just stare at them in the garage), it's top driver-quality all the way with only minor imperfections to speak of. Add that awesome 'Custom' level trim level that includes bright stainless and black accents that separate the two colors, chrome bumpers at the end caps, that iconic front grille complete with an egg crate inlay, and a neatly lettered tailgate trim panel that looks traditional and finishes off the look perfectly. There's a whole lot of bed back there too, and that 8-footer has been professionally lined with a spray-in bedliner that looks great and wears like iron.
The flashback to the late '60s and early '70s continues inside the cabin, highlighted by that comfortable black bench that's upholstered with black vinyl, cloth inserts, and period-perfect Western scroll accents in the center. Workmanship is fantastic and once you're inside, you'll be impressed by the quality of all the materials used. Matching Cheyenne-style door panels feature that same Western scroll found in the bench seat, a set of plush black carpets on the floors add to the luxury-oriented vibe, and sharp-eyed viewers will spot details like the black dash pad and headliner that tie the whole interior together. All that neatly stitched black material provides the perfect contrast to the Olive Green paint on the dash and doors, and the original steering wheel at the helm of the cockpit anchors the entire cabin. There's a fresh set of gauges just beyond it inside an original-style bezel, and they keep an eye on the big block under the hood, and the chrome shifter on the column gives this truck a 'set-it-and-forget-it' option that's exactly what you look for in a classic truck. Options include a Pioneer AM/FM/CD head unit in the center of the dash, and an under-dash A/C unit backed up with modern hardware and R134a refrigerant " tunes and A/C, the only options you really need to sit back and enjoy the show.
Much of this truck's driving pleasure comes from the 454 cubic inch V8 fitted between the fenders. It has a cool performance look, complete with a blacked-out, Chevrolet open-element air cleaner up top, matching valve covers at the flanks, and Chevy Orange paint on the block itself. Horsepower is enhanced by a big 4-barrel carburetor and matching Blueprint aluminum intake manifold, and a set of stock-style exhaust manifolds help things look just right under the hood. It runs extremely well, smooth but torquey, and there's a lot of new equipment so it's ready to eat up some pavement, and a big aluminum radiator up front keeps the whole show nice and cool. It's backed by a stout TH400 3-speed automatic transmission and a 12-bolt rear, so you don't have to worry about breakage if you actually put it to work (this would be an awesome tow vehicle for your Camaro!). The underside is typical of a vehicle that has lived someplace warm, and has been finished with satin black paint for a uniform look. Power steering and power brakes ensure a great ride every time out, while the stainless-steel dual exhaust system underneath sounds deep and throaty. Traditional Rallye wheels set a classic stance and are fitted with grippy 275/60/15 Cooper Cobra white-letter radials that finish the look perfectly.
This is a well-built truck with great hardware and a brilliant paint job. The fact that it can also earn its keep around the house only makes it easier to get approval for the purchase. Call today!
