This is a rare and beautiful, fully equipped 1970 Chevrolet Custom Sport Truck package with only 59K original miles with original condition and paint!
Delivered to the COD garage in Minden Nevada on February 9th, 1970, this truck has spent all its days protected in this very dry climate. We have the original factory order sheet that is in great condition, and all the receipts for all the work that has been recently done. Still sporting the original dark gold and white two tone paint, you will not believe how nice truck looks, runs, and drives.
350 V8 Engine. Original numbers matching 350 4 barrel engine. Professionally rebuilt to a conservative 345 HP (with receipts). All brand new high performance engine internals have been blueprinted and balanced. The heads are upgraded all new nostalgic 1969 double hump camel back heads, and support a very nice, era correct, factory original GM 1969 Z28 Aluminum Winters casting intake manifold topped with a brand new Holley Street avenger carb with an electric choke. The engine starts and runs perfectly with awesome power and a great deep tone.
Automatic Transmission. The Stock Turbo 350 Hydramatic transmission has been completely rebuilt by a local mechanic. The transmission shifts quickly, yet not harsh, and works like new. The strong 12 Bolt differential was serviced with new fluids, and works great.
Power Steering and Brakes. Brand new brakes, wheels and tires. The new 15 X 8 rallye wheels are paired with huge 275/ 60 R15 Uniroyal Tiger Paw GTS tires.

Body and Paint. The beautiful and shiny paint is the original dark gold and white two tone. No body work has every been done to this truck. There is absolutely no rust except for lower body tool box door. The undercarriage is all original and is very, very clean. There are a few minor dings and such, and the grille and front bumper has a few larger dents, but overall, the body and paint are in incredible shape for a truck. There is some sun fading on the hood and the trim.
Trim Package and Special Features. This truck has the very nice and highest level trim available in 1970. The Custom Sport Truck package (CST) is the SS option of the truck world, and fits right in with the popular 1970 Chevelle SS or Camaro SS of the era.
