After having received a thorough restoration a while back, this 1977 Chevrolet C10 has come through the years in unusually clean shape - the benefit of having served under an attentive long term owner. During the course of its revitalization, a potent big block engine also took its place beneath the hood, so in addition to its sharp, understated factory looks, this pickup is wielding some serious power.
From all indications, the work performed in elevating this classic Chevy back to its former glory was done with plenty of care and skilled workmanship. The burgundy paint it wears equips it with a sort of “factory-plus” appearance, amping up the curb appeal the truck had when it first debuted some 40 years ago while, along with the cowl hood in front, injecting just a slight aftermarket sensibility. It carries a strong shine in its present state and a comprehensive detailing would really make the rich color pop. From the front grille back to the diamond plate rear bumper, the chrome this Chevy displays is in good condition, with no pitting to be found anywhere. Fresh headlights are on board to light the path ahead and the cabin is surrounded by clean glass, with a tinted windshield up front and a functional, sliding panel at the back - a sought-after feature in this pickup's heyday. Its sturdy foundation has served it well - take a lap around and you'll see it's well aligned, with tight, even gaps surrounding the doors and hood. The ultra-clean custom wheels really finish off the profile nicely when this '77 is viewed from the side.
During the course of its restoration, the burgundy interior was thoroughly refurbished while retaining its factory specifications and respectful use since has left it looking great throughout. The cloth bench seat at its center is nicely padded and wears a well-fitted cover as it sits over red carpet that's in near-showroom condition. Chevy equipped its pickups with an array of chrome accents across both their instrument and door panels during this era and both are in top shape, with the former encircling an assortment of clear functional gauges. The factory air conditioning system is blowing cold and strong and is well up to the challenge of keeping you and your passengers comfortable during this warmer weather. A pair of seamlessly installed speakers in the doors brings the audio from the AM/FM/Cassette stereo into the cabin. In back, the Pendaliner drop in bedliner has performed its duties well - there aren't any marked scuffs or other signs of shifting cargo anywhere in sight.
The 454 cubic inch V8 under the hood represents the largest powerplant offering available when this '77 debuted and this one is a fine representative. Sitting at the center of a very clean and well detailed compartment, it wears an upgraded intake manifold and a 4-barrel carb underneath its Edelbrock air cleaner and is surrounded by fresh looking hoses and properly routed wiring. The big block fires up easily and pulls with plenty of vigor - pairing with a 3-speed automatic TH400 transmission that's also in top form - and it anchors a road ready drivetrain and sends a nice deep note out of the pair of Flowmaster mufflers in back. Both the power steering and power brakes - which feature discs up front - are in good working order, so this vintage workhorse navigates and stops promptly on its set of 15” custom steel wheels with Chevy-branded centers that are wrapped with Futura GLS Super Sport tires.
