1971 Chevrolet C10 Pickup
It's no secret that Chevrolet builds some of the most celebrated trucks on the planet. From the AK era forward, every generation has found a solid following and, eventually, firm footing in the collector car world. Over the past few years, we've featured plenty of vintage, ground-pounding bowties, and this righteous purple people eater is just the latest in a series of sweet C/K head turners.
For consignment a resto-mod C-10 with all the right moves…straight panels…Check!...great chrome…Check!, A new Interior...Check!, and a powerful mill….Check! If you have an affinity for purple and licking flames, Check! This truck out.
A shaved modified rear with widened fender tubs for a lower ride, white under purple with plenty of heat added in the form of thin licking flame pin striping. A new bed lined gray carpet, is covered by a solid lift up tonneau whose interior is gray cloth and a centered purple bowtie. This is completed with a spoiler in purple. As we move forward, the cab has been chopped and is also covered in purple. At the belt line where the delineation between purple and white takes place, we see more licking flames. Door handles have been shaved, and a remote now pops them open. The front of the truck we see a large purple scoop on the hood and in front at the grille, some purple-ing of the bumpers, headlight bezels and grille surround. Shiny horizontal bars protect the radiator and add bling to this truck. 15” weld Prostar wheels are all around and are wrapped with 31 x 16.5-15LT Mickey Thompson Sportsman Pro rear tires, and in front 215/65R15 tires. No sour grapes on this exterior.
A light gray broadcloth peppered with purple cloth accents covers 2 buckets inside. A custom center console in gray races through the seats, and houses a storage compartment, and cup holders. This stops abruptly at a floor mounted gearshift. An original C10 style dash, splashed with purple, and a burlap style dash top covering an aftermarket Radio/CD player, and a large bowtie logo where the radio used to be. The adjustable steering column sports a column tachometer and is fronted by a new rally style steering wheel. The floor is carpeted with nice clean gray carpeting and has gray carpet floor mats emblazoned with purple Chevy bowtie logos. The headliner, not to be outdone by the floor, also has gray burlap textured cloth, and a purple bowtie in the center. A plethora of Purple, even a smattering on the door panels.
A simple but effective Chevrolet 350ci crate motor with a thumping Cam Hy balancer inside topped by a Holley 750 CFM carburetor and a TH400 3-speed automatic transmission and all the way back a 12-bolt 3.55 posi rear.
Showing very clean, black paint in excellent condition save for some water drips, is broken up by dual exhausts, and a shiny oil pan. Power disc brakes upfront and power drums in the rear are seen.
A fine job on this restoration gives this C10 a unique look, all the while retaining its mostly original form. For the person who's passionate about purple, has a perchance for performance, we have the perfectly aged truck, redone to make your neighbors purple with envy. And it has been done pleasingly! **Please note this vehicle has a reconstructed title**
