A cool stepside like this 1979 Chevrolet C10 Custom Deluxe is the kind of truck we'd all love to have. There's a very cool honesty in this one, and at the same time, everything from the wood in the truck bed to the comfy seats lets you know there has been the right level of investment, too.

A stepside like this makes you think about true vintage style. So we love one that comes in a 1970s earth-tone kind of color like the tan/beige. But there's a bit more going on here. The paint was refreshed later in life, and that means a quality gloss that helps to highlight the crisp lines of the good body panels. There's a newer bed cover in a coordinating brown. When you roll it back, there's fresh and glossy lumber to really show off the final years a truck had a factory wood bed. A bright chrome front bumper, rear step bumper w/hitch, correct trim, and classic bow tire wheel covers, all make for a true vintage presentation that can turn back the clock.

The earth-tones continue inside and that makes the atmosphere pure 1970s cool. You especially see it on the classic cloth pattern inserts on the seat. Nice door panels, a smooth dash, clean gauges, and good carpeting are all part of a reminder that this was kept with proper respect. And the sliding rear window means you can get the breezes flowing through this classic pickup in the old-school way. And while this can feel like a time capsule, there are a few well-integrated upgrades. The retro-style radio gives you an AM/FM digital tuner for better cruising music. And the auxiliary gauge trio gives you a full picture of what's going on under the hood.

The engine bay has a true classic style with the 250 cubic-inch inline-six. We all know some pretty awesome V8s fit in these Chevys. So it would be pretty easy to turn this into a pretty cool sleeper. The value price allows these kinds of fantasies. But first, take a moment to appreciate the history of the inline-six. There are hardy motors, and this one has been given the right care and investment to remain both strong and smooth. Plus, the column-shifted three-speed manual transmission gives you proper control and a vintage feeling. And the power steering and front disc brakes make cruising easy.

Complete with the owner's manual, this is a true classic that loves to show off its vintage style all over town. Call today!!!
