This is what's absolutely cool in vintage trucks today. You're looking at a 1971 Chevrolet C10 that has earned its cool patina look. Plus, with V8 power and a streetwise stance, it has an irresistible attitude.
Patina has a cool confidence that looks perfect on vintage pickups. After all, these had to earn a living, and so you love one that has earned its worn-in look. But as you dig a little deeper, you also see more attention to detail in this truck's presentation. For example, the patina was sealed in with a matte clearcoat. That means you can protect the finish you love without altering its personality. Plus, the way the door shut solid and the tailgate lines up nicely reveals more of the subtle quality in this one. Of course, one overt feature we love are the 20-inch polished Torq Thrust wheels on the lowered suspension. It adds the right amount of attitude in the stance.
Inside is more of that cool truck originality. You especially see it on the classic bench seat with cloth inserts. The dash, the gauges, the heater controls, the AM radio on display, and the classic column shifter all give you that terrific vintage feeling. Plus, just like the exterior wheels, the upgrade to the wood-rimmed Chevy sports steering wheel is just the right amount of flair within this original-style attitude.
Under the hood is a period-correct 350 cubic-inch V8. It has the right look with the bold orange block, dark air topper, and fresher wires and hoses. The V8 inhales deeper with an Edelbrock four-barrel carburetor, and it exhales with a sweet tune out of the dual exhaust. The three-speed manual transmission gives you firm control over the motor. Plus, it really is built for driving with the desirable trailing arm rear suspension, power steering, front disc brakes, and the grippy modern tires that come when you upgrade to those shiny alloys.
This one has a cool history, right down to the Carolina dealer tag still on the tailgate. It all makes for a well-earned and correctly upgraded patina package you're going to love. Call today!!!
