This slick 1972 Chevrolet C10 Custom pickup offers chiseled good looks enhanced by a muscle car-like custom color combination. And beyond the shine, this pickup has the stroker V8 and enhanced suspension to back up its bold image. So if you can't choose between a custom muscle machine and a vintage truck, this is your perfect solution.
The first thing you notice about this truck is the huge investment in custom paint. The two-tone metallic burgundy and orange has the modern clearcoat and a professional hand applying it. So it has the kind of shine usually reserved for chrome. And it only gets better with the thick yellow line separating the colors that is laser-straight as it runs all the way around the truck. And oh yeah, we instantly noticed the flames, too. And that's just the tip of the custom work performed. The cowl hood, shaved door handles, integrated side exhaust, frenched-in dual antennas, a smooth tonneau cover, and a custom integrated rear roll pan give this one an exceptionally sleek look. A bright chrome grille, brighter 20-inch Billet Specialties wheels, and even crystal clear LED taillights means the custom brightness is recognized from every angle.
When you pop the remote door openers, you instantly see the upper-echelon quality of this build. After all, most paintjobs don't go in the door jambs. But on this one you'll notice the full color package warps inside and even under the dash. More than just look amazing, this is one of the most comfortable interiors you'll even find in a C10. The exterior burgundy returns as an accent color, and it's now joined by supple tan leather. The two-tone bench seat has a premium insignia trim to attract the crowds, and it has individual bolstering to keep you all-day comfortable. This coordinates nicely with the custom door panels, headliner, and dash for a full uniform package. A Lokar shifter, crisp Classic Instruments gauges, and Billet Specialties steering wheel on a chrome tilt column means you have the best of everything. And because you're going to be taking this one to car shows near and far, you get all the best in modern comfort like an AM/FM/CD stereo with plenty of speakers and R134a air conditioning.
You'll love opening the hood at car shows because the V8 has the unmistakable look of performance. The mirror-like inner fenders, air topper, and all the great accents draw attention to the that 383 cubic-inch stroker motor. This one has great go-fast goodies like a four-barrel carburetor, Edelbrock hi-rise intake, Billet Tru Trac pulleys, and a set of Hedman headers that feed the rumbling side exhaust. Making the most of this full package is the 700R4 four-speed automatic transmission that offers crisp downshifts for performance driving and an overdrive gear for highway cruising. And if this sounds like a great cruising package, the aluminum radiator w/dual electric fans is exactly what you want to keep this one running cool in all conditions – even when the A/C is pumping. Plus, take some time to look at the undercarriage photos. There you're going to spot great upgrades like the thick front sway bar, triangulated four-link rear with coilovers, and the grip of modern performance tires. Add in power steering and front disc brakes, and this stunner is also a terrific cruiser.
This is a performance vintage pickup that's a complete and clean build – in fact the secure truck bed is there to haul home all the trophies! An award-worthy turn-key package this nice rarely leaves its creator's hands, so hurry up and call today!
