The absolutely bold two-tone makes sure people instantly recognize this 1982 Chevrolet C10 Pro Street as something special. And when you see all the upgrades to the suspension, A/C interior, and monster big block under the hood, you can see this was done to be a thoughtful total package.
This truck has the kind of backstory we all want on a unique machine. The consignor says he owned this truck twice. In fact, it's said that this truck has spent most of its life sold between a small group of buddies who have transformed it into a mean street machine along the way. And you can see the style the moment the two-tone black and orange come into view. It looks glossy, with orange having a terrific metallic element that pops in the sunshine. There's even a hand-laid green pinstripe package acting as a divider for the two colors all along the body. The white flames, bright chrome bumpers, billet grille, and gold trim around the window show off more thoughtful details. But what really has you taking notice are the speedy upgrades. There's a massive power dome on the cowl hood, center exhaust, and polished Coys wheels staggered 18/20-inches front/rear. And not only does this have a lowered stance, but that clean truck bed also is a subtle way to show off how tubbed the rear wheel wells fit the massive rear tires.
The interior starts with classic truck appeal and then adds in solid upgrades. The brown velour bench seat, rubber floor mats, and headliner all have a stock style but an inviting presentation from a proper investment. It's a comfortable cruiser with features such as AM/FM/cassette stereo and cold-blowing air conditioning. The upgraded billet paneling on the dash and door panels give this a sporty style, especially with the billet column shifter added, too. And there's a nice muscle car kind of feel in this truck with a wood-rimmed Grant sports steering wheel mounted on a tilt column, wraparound gauge panel, and tach mounted prominently on top of the dash.
All that bold orange radiating against the black inner walls of the engine bay make this motor look like it's radiating power. And this powerhouse certainly has plenty of muscle. It's a 454 cubic-inch V8 believed to have been punched out to 468ci total and had a mild cam added. The big block has further been upgraded with performance components like a Holley double-pumper four-barrel carburetor, Edelbrock intake, and a nice set of headers feeding the dual exhaust. It's supported by the right pieces, including an MSD ignition, Accel distributor, an oversized radiator, oil cooler, and steel braided lines. The TH400 three-speed automatic transmission is a stout unit built with a good 2500 stall. This feeds a Ford 9-inch limited-slip rear end. As you look underneath, you'll also see the rear suspension has been upgraded to ladder bars with a diagonal link and adjustable coilovers. And while this has the power package setup for a quarter-mile king, there's more going on here. It feels more versatile as an all-around good driver with power steering and four-wheel power disc brakes.
This is the cool build with a street machine look, a cool story, plenty of power, and a surprisingly easy demeanor. So don't miss this unique full package. Call today!!!
