Streetside Classics - Nashville
6000 Reliance Dr
If you understand vanning then you should immediately get excited for this 1966 Chevrolet G10. It takes a rare Chevy Van and it's a real vintage build with all the cool/classic creature comforts - right down to the shag carpeting.
More than just custom, we know this G10 is a true classic. It was the first of the G-Series and, and it was only in production for a few years. So it's a true rarity out there today, and this example has very clean and complete sheet metal. This Chevy was customized back in the day, and the presentation reminds you of it. We're told this was created about 30-40 years ago, and it doesn't look like it has been touched since then. The value price on this Chevy leaves room in your budget for a respray, but really, most of us like how this one still represents its era. It was resprayed a creamy white, and you know it's Plain VANilla name because the pinstriping tells you so on the rear door. In fact, you'll marvel at all the custom hand-laid pinstriping that has faded into this patina-like presentation. Plus, headlight eyelids, chrome bumpers, blue-dot taillights, and bright wire wheels are all about representing a cool piece of custom automotive culture.
The originality of the custom work is especially appreciated inside. The walls have been outfitted with vintage shag carpeting and plenty of custom cedar wood cabinetry. The floor is done in newer modern laminate just to keep everything simple. But no one is really going to notice it because they'll be paying too much attention to the custom mural made for a cupboard backsplash. Up front, if you're going to be king of the road, you need a proper throne. So they added two high-back bucket seats. And with plenty of wood and shag on the cup holder center console and dash, this knows how to give you the right old-school feel.
Chevy's sturdy 250 cubic-inch inline-six is mounted in-between the seats for a nice weight balance. It fires up readily and shifts smoothly on the column-shifted three-speed manual transmission. This package feels quite good going down the road, and the upgraded wheels allow for wider modern tires.
This is a cool part of custom car culture that has amazingly survived. Call today!!!
