An outstanding color scheme draped over its stout, capable-looking exterior combines with a strong running drivetrain to make this 1969 Chevrolet C10 Stepside a very appealing classic. It's only about 2,000 miles beyond a thorough restoration and will begin its next chapter of service complete with both restoration photos and build receipts in tow.
C10 Stepsides of this era have such a robust, hearty appearance to them- their relatively short beds accentuate their width and make them seem like they're capable of handling any task you set in front of them. The two-tone black and gray paint scheme this one wears is a real winner - you can see right off it's been applied with skill and it has a great shine that follows you as you circle this classic truck. The blue painted stripes running the lengths of the sides and across the tailgate are a great visual detail. The black billet front grille and cowl hood add to its aggressive appearance. Pretty much all this truck's brightwork, as well as its front and rear bumpers, has been recently replaced. Fresh weatherstripping and new glass surround the cabin and the exterior alignment on this Chevy is very strong, that blue stripe runs very even as it transitions from front fender to door and back to the rear bed area, and its doors open and shut very smoothly.
The interior is in great condition, not a huge surprise, considering it was redone from scratch, and a refurbished bench seat that combines black vinyl and gray sits at its center, showing some great detailing. It's well padded and comfortable and its diamond shaped inserts blend perfectly with the door panels to each side. A show stopper of a Chevy badged billet steering wheel sits on its tilting chrome column while just beyond it, a matching billet instrument panel encircles the assortment of clear, functional Autometer gauges and an awesome, suede finished dash pad runs the width of the cabin. This pickup's next lucky owner will have his or her audio desires well covered - the aftermarket AM/FM/CD stereo recessed into the center of the dash teams with an Alpine subwoofer and amp, as well as an array of quality speakers, to fill the interior with sound. The bed area in back has seen all the attention it needs to keep it looking great, its floor is lined with well-prepped wooden planks and you'll find no blemishes on its straight, shiny walls.
The 350 cubic inch Ramjet V8 at the center of the engine compartment is running strong and has been visually improved with upgraded elements that include a chrome Edelbrock air cleaner, a pair of Chevy-badged chrome valve covers and an impressively finished Edelbrock intake manifold. A Holley Sniper EFI system now sits on top of the manifold, so this classic truck enjoys both convenient adjustability and optimum all-weather performance, and a new Painless Wiring harness has been added to the mix for increased dependability. The powerplant teams with a solidly-shifting 3-speed automatic TH400 transmission and sounds great as it vocalizes into the long tube headers leading out to its Flowmaster dual exhaust. This truck is a very strong driver - in addition to the punch it's packing, its power steering is smooth and its suspension is in good form so it really rides nicely, while power brakes that feature discs up front bring its set of Torq Thrust II style wheels - 20” in front and 22” in back and wrapped with Toyo tires - to dependable stops.
Blending plenty of vintage charm with a great array of upgrades to enhance both its drivability and curb appeal, this 1969 Chevrolet C10 Stepside is going to make some classic truck enthusiast very happy. Call today!
