By the time the second generation Chevrolet C10 pickups came along in 1967, Chevrolet had become a well-established name associated with tough work trucks that didn't look half bad while doing their job. Some would say that it was this second generation of C/K series trucks that really changed the course of trucks in the future. Besides, without these trucks there would be no squarebodies!
This 1970 C10 short bed is in great driver condition. The paint job is of reasonable quality and would really gain a lot from a good buffing! The body is straight clean and void of any bubbling or rust concerns. The gas tank has been relocated from behind the seat to under the truck. The slotted mag wheels really set the tone for the theme of the truck, and the tonneau cover is the cherry on top of the clean classic look!
Inside you'll find a clean and presentable, mild custom interior with a center console, durable cloth seats, and subtly upgraded Sunpro gauges installed in the original cluster. An aftermarket radio has been installed for all your musical cruising needs, and the interior retains much of its original allure. As a whole, the interior is clean and complete and designed for regular use as a cruiser.
Under the hood is a Chevrolet 402 big block V8, which is more than enough power for this short wheelbase Chevy! This truck is responsive and has a throaty but not raspy sound to it. Additionally, it sounds nice without being deafening. It makes all the sounds you want it to, and none of the sounds you don't! The 402 is hooked up to a GM 700R4 four-speed automatic transmission for maximum relaxing cruis-ability.
This C10 is a neat little cruiser that could be enjoyed as is for years to come, or used as a starting point to build that next-level SWB C10 custom you've been dreaming about! Whatever your desires, this little shorty is a worthy candidate.
