 Vehicle Description
Here at Streetside Classics, were often able to spot trends before they become widespread, just by watching what our inventory does. And lately, trucks like this 1970 Chevrolet C10 have been red hot, perhaps suggesting that these handsome trucks are finally coming into their own as legitimate collector pieces. Of course, its hard to argue against them when they look this good and still offer a measure of practicality that most hobby vehicles cant touch.

The short bed/regular cab setup is by far the most popular today, combining rugged good looks with the most compact and lightweight body style. This one is finished in dark green and white paint that looks elegant and sophisticated, without distracting from the original designs clean lines. That look reaches back into the 50s and 60s when a white top was an easy way to keep the cabs cool on hot days, an important feature when your vehicle didnt have A/C. This one features a few dress-up items, like the chrome bumpers, a gorgeous original grille, and that funky side trim with wood appliques certainly improve the looks, and the white-painted CHEVROLET letters on the tailgate are a traditional touch that works well. The fully refinished bed shows zero indications that it was ever used to haul heavy, sharp stuff, a tradition youll probably want to maintain once you get it home. A set of shiny aluminum bed rails help protect the sides and also offer handy tie-down points, just in case you still want to use this truck as intended.

In the same way the exterior has been given a modest makeover to disguise the trucks blue-collar roots, the same can be said inside where the vinyl bench has been upgraded with fabric inserts that work well with the original-style door panels. Basic rubber mats on the floor are how this truck was originally equipped, offering a no-fuss way to enjoy your truck, and the metal dash and doors have been painted to match the bodywork. The factory gauges are simply gorgeous and include a full array of instruments that keep a good eye on the engines operation. The dash hosts a newer Pioneer AM/FM/cassette stereo head unit, but that seems to be the only notable deviation from stock spec. The steering wheel was obviously painted to match the bodywork, but we like the look and overall, this has the vibe of a truck thats been loved.

Sometime simple is better, and the mechanicals in this truck have proven themselves over the years. The 350 cubic inch V8 engine isnt dressed for show, but its obvious that someone cared enough to install an upgraded intake Edelbrock manifold, Holley carburetor, and chrome air cleaner, and maintenance looks like it has been regularly carried out. A new alternator delivers the juice, while the dual exhaust system uses glasspack-style mufflers and polished tips located under the rear bumper. Power steering and power front disc brakes are nice additions to a vehicle weighing nearly 4000 pounds, although it drives like a much smaller machine, and the coil spring rear suspension definitely improves ride quality. The transmission is a TH350 3-speed automatic spinning the original 12-bolt rear end. And who doesnt love those 15-inch Rally wheels with spinners and fat white-letter radials that give the truck a sporty look.

This C10 represents a great way to get into the hobby, and is a practical way to drive a cool old vehicle for not a lot of money. Call today!
