This 1965 Chevrolet C10 truly represents the best of everything vintage. It's a restored pickup that will transport you half a century back in time with one of the most honest and clean presentations you'll find anywhere. And the reason why you can find such a vintage pickup is that this is the first time it has ever been offered outside of the original family.
There have been some big investments all around this truck. The light blue paint sets the tone nicely for a 1960s machine. And the quality of the respray really takes you back to when this one first hit the road. You also see good work in the clean painted wood on the long bed floor and overall clean lines of the sheet metal. The white bumpers, grille, and tailgate lettering even give this a subtle two-tone. This Chevy is all about a vintage kind of cool, right down to the great-looking wheel setup with classic hubcaps. The reason for such a classic truck is because this one has a true family history. It was purchased new by the father and then passed to the sons. It has such a strong connection that it was given a comprehensive restoration in 2011. We even have a full itemized spreadsheet of the work and components that went into getting this family heirloom back to the day when dad first had it.
Just like the exterior, the interior has been restored to be clean, simple, and absolutely vintage. In fact, if you pay close attention, the color of the wheels is also the metallic tan that's the foundation of the interior. The whole package really turns back the clock with the thin/grippy steering wheel, rubber floor mat, smooth steel dash, and detailed cloth pattern for the bench seat. The only real modern upgrade you're going to spot is a well-integrated retro-style AM/FM digital tuner with cassette. After all, a truck restored to be a classic cruiser needs the right driving music.
Vintage pickup lovers will marvel at this ultra-clean and ultra-honest engine bay. The 292 cubic-inch inline-six is a famously hardy Chevy powerhouse. So while we all know that Chevy's big blocks will fit in this ample engine bay, that's not the point of owning this one. It's simple, correct, and strong - just like the best pickups once were. You take control of the motor with the classic action of the column-shifted three-speed manual transmission, and it gives you that unbeatable vintage easy cruising feel. It's a smooth runner that really lets you know the investments in this one were far more than cosmetic. So this one loves to head on down the highways and byways with a true feel for the road.
The sale comes complete with build receipts, service manuals, a classic photo CD, a truck cover, and more. This is a vintage stunner, and so if you love a true classic truck, you know you can't let this one get away. Call today!!!
