Like your classic pickups with plenty of drivability to go along with outstanding curb appeal? This 1970 Chevrolet C10 is a great take on the model - it's a super solid vintage truck that's been very nicely restored with a bit of a sinister attitude. It's sporting a set of ultra-sharp wheels to update its look just a bit, along with some well chosen aftermarket upgrades to provide an outstanding driving experience.
The dark olive green shade draped over this classic's exterior mirrors the same hue it drove off the assembly line with and shows all the hallmarks of a paint job very well done. The consistency of both color and texture everywhere is pretty impressive - the shine is nice and deep and as you come in for a closer look, you'll notice all those signs that proper prep work was performed. Up front, the grille is in very clean condition as it sits between a vibrant Chevy hood emblem just above and a table straight, unblemished bumper below, with headlight casings that appear to have been recently replaced. As far as stance is concerned, this C10 strikes a nice balance - low enough to serve notice that it's been customized, but still with a lot of wheel clearance for everyday driving situations. The body alignment looks great, with a cabin that transitions smoothly to the bed area and body contours that really stand out against their deep green backdrop. In back, the tailgate bears precisely-painted black Chevrolet lettering for some nice contrast and the precision with which the gate lines up with the panels to either side is just another indication of how detailed this restoration was.
The olive green interior retains its factory authenticity and you'll be impressed by just how fresh everything looks - the bench seat is in great shape, with plenty of padding, the matching carpeting below is very well-fitted and the door panels to each side sit flush and carry original-looking handles that show no pitting at all. The level of functionality on hand is top notch and everything, except for the original AM radio in the center of the dash, is working just as intended. The bed area is protected by a Rhino-style liner that's performed its duties well - there are no noticeable scuffs inside and with the tailgate in its lowered position you can see that fresh hinges were also installed somewhere along the way.
Underneath the hood, a 350 cubic inch V8 sits in a very nicely detailed engine compartment, sporting a very sharp, Chevy-branded matte black air cleaner and matching valve covers. The engine is running strong - it's been armed with an Edelbrock 4 barrel carb and intake, as well as aftermarket headers and a performance cam that provides a very appealing but unobtrusive lope and pairs with a 4-speed automatic transmission whose overdrive gear makes for low revs at highway speeds. A Ridetech suspension has been installed in both front and back, so this classic truck offers a great ride - no small feat with its generously proportioned 20" Boss wheels wrapped with Nitto Invo tires - and you'll find power disc brakes with slotted and drilled rotors at all four corners for low-effort, fade resistant stops.
Offering all the vintage appeal you could ask for, but with just the right upgrades to provide a great driving experience in everyday conditions, this 1970 Chevrolet C10 is one awesome truck. Call today!
