 Vehicle Description
Theres an awful lot to love in this 1968 Chevy C10 pickup. Great color combination, big block power, perfect stance, and a leather-lined interior that really pops against the black paint. If youve been searching for a do-it-all weekend warrior, this truck should be your leading candidate.



Its safe to say that these trucks are insanely popular. They never last long on the showroom floor, and if youve even been to a show, you know that theyre starting to show up in ever larger numbers. However, when this black stepside rolls in, people stop and notice. Perhaps its the threatening rumble of the big block, but its also likely to be the impressive black paint job that coats one of the best-looking pickups ever built. The regular cab/stepside bed combination has a muscular look thanks to those rounded fenders, and painting it black means that no shortcuts were taken in the build. It fits together quite well overall, and with a bit of warmth coming from the fresh wood bed, its classically elegant as well as brutally handsome. A few chrome trim pieces highlight the interesting areas of the truck, from the square-jawed front end to the tubular bed rails that really dress it up. Admit it: you love the way this truck looks. I know I do.



The red interior is leather, not vinyl, and that makes a big difference when you climb inside. The original bench is gone, replaced by a trick setup that looks like a pair of buckets, but still offers three-across seating, as GM intended. The gauges and bezel around them are newly installed, and when your dials look as good as the stock ones in this truck, theres no need for aftermarket stuff. Everything is new, including the carpets, door panels, and dash pad, and aside from some very minor signs of use, it looks extremely fresh. Under-dash A/C keeps things cool without straining the big block, but for cooler days theres a sliding rear window for draft-free ventilation. An AM/FM/cassette stereo in the dash offers entertainment options, but once you grab that fat wood-rimmed wheel and B&M shifter, well, your mind wont be on the music.



The reason is simple: 454 cubic inches of big block thunder. With an aluminum high-rise intake and a big Holley 4-barrel carb, throttle response is instantaneous and if youre not careful, youll turn those 20-inch rear tires into expensive tire smoke without even trying. It appears to be a GM crate motor based on the late-model valve covers, but they took the time to give it a proper coat of Chevy Orange engine enamel before dropping it into place. Long-tube headers and a throaty Flowmaster exhaust system sound awesome with the tips right behind the rear wheels. A TH350 3-speed automatic transmission shifts without hesitation the moment your foot hits the carpet and the 12-bolt rear end means that durability wont be an issue. The chassis still looks great following the frame-off build, showing a few signs of use, but theyre easy to forgive when everything is in such good order. Even those shiny American Racing wheels look fresh and wear 245/45/18 front and 275/40/20 rear performance radials.



This is one of those trucks that looks so good most folks wouldnt care what lived under the hood. Fortunately, this big block needs no excuses and drives every bit as well. Call today!
