There's an awful lot to love in this 1972 Chevrolet C10 pickup, including the great color combination, serious big block power, perfect stance, and upgraded interior. If you've been searching for a do-it-all weekend warrior, this affordable custom should be your leading candidate.
It's safe to say that these trucks are insanely popular. They never last long on the showroom floor, and you've probably started noticing the larger crowds gathering around these second generation C10s at your local car shows. Now is the time to get to the head of the pack by arriving in the meanest-looking one around. This C10 is aggressive with its glossy metallic blue paint. Plus, it has all the right intimidating features with the power bulge of the custom cowl hood, modern 454 SS graphics on the rear, and the rear bumper deleted so you can see those large exhaust pipes. And more than just those tips, there are some more great spots of brightwork that highlight the custom areas of the truck, such as the front bumper, clean grille and the 15-inch wheels that also look like they were borrowed from the more modern Silverado 454 SS. But even with all these great upgrades, this is still a true pickup at its heart. That's why beneath the slick tonneau cover there's liner paint that allows you to take full advantage of this long bed truck.
Inside is the right mix of vintage and upgrades. For example, the light blue seat and door panels look great against the darker blue exterior paint that also accents the interior. Plus, the Western-style upholstery pattern that came on these upper-level Cheyenne trucks is something we all love to see at car shows. In fact, this one has the right factory features, including provisions for air conditioning. But there are also all the right upgrades. The radio looks retro, but it's a more modern AM/FM/cassette unit with a digital tuner. Plus, you'll love grabbing the wood-rimmed steering wheel with SS center cap. And the addition of the SunPro tach to the gauge panel is a nice indication of something special under the hood even before you twist the key and hear it roar.
Pop the hood, and once you get over the bright components, bold orange block, and overall tidy presentation, you'll realize you're staring down a monster motor. It's a 454 cubic-inch big-block V8 that been bored .30 over to 460ci total. It's upgraded with components such as a roller cam, Holley 750 CFM four-barrel carburetor, and headers that feed a throaty Flowmaster 2.5-inch dual exhaust. Making sure you can correctly handle all this power is a rebuilt TH400 three-speed automatic transmission with B&M shift kit. Plus, a stout 12-bolt rear end with 3.73 gears means reliable and powerful takeoffs. This muscle truck has all the right supporting components, too. It includes a thick front sway bar, power steering, front disc brakes, and the C10's sought-after trailing arm rear suspension.
Complete with build receipts, maintenance records, and owner's manual, this is a street-eating pickup that's also an attractive Sunday driver. So at this affordable price, you know this will be a deal that's moving fast. Call today!!!
