We've had a lot of Chevy pickups come through our showroom, but not many have approached the incredible design and build quality of this 1972 Chevrolet C-10 resto-mod. With a dialed-in Light Olive Green paint job, spectacular leather interior, and feisty small block V8 under the hood, it delivers show-ready looks with road-ready performance, while providing supreme comfort for those who love to drive. Stop looking, this is the Action Line pickup you've been looking for.

You already know from the price that this truck is something special. There's not a panel on it that hasn't been smoothed, molded, or altered in some way (check out the smoothed front valance and all the custom work on the tailgate and bed), yet it's still 100% recognizable as one of Chevy's finest pickups. Deleting the bumpers, trim, and stock emblems certainly helps achieve a slick look, but it's that unique, drab Light Olive Green paint applied by professionals that really seals the deal. Lots of time and effort went into getting all the bodywork silky smooth, and it shows, with show-quality gaps and alignment, and a miles-deep, shiny finish that makes this truck show-worthy at pretty much any venue. Maybe someone could find something to pick on in this build, but we certainly haven't. Trick pieces up front include a cowl hood, a billet grille framed by LED headlights, and that lower valance that was formed into the fenders for an insanely cool, all-in-one smoothed look. Out back, they seamlessly smoothed together the bed with the roll pan and tailgate (it looks so darn good I can hardly stand it), and the choice of space-age LED taillights and cursive 'Chevrolet' script are the perfect complement to the look. The inside of the bed was covered with black spray-in bedliner, which means you can actually use this truck for hard work, although everything is finished to such a high level you might think twice before you let anything (or anyone) dirty near it.

There's more high-end craftsmanship inside, where the bench seat was wrapped in custom leather upholstery that updates the C-10's formerly bare-bones interior, and the light tan color looks amazing against the olive exterior paint. The door panels were stitched to match and feature covered armrests and chrome hardware, there's a matching padded dash pad, and handsome carpets including tan floormats that really insulate the cabin. If you look at the steel dash too fast you might miss the trick bodywork that matches the exterior, including the smoothed-and-formed gauge bezel and glove compartment, and a full array of white-face RPC gauge ahead of the driver keep a closer eye on the motor. A super-cool billet steering wheel was mounted atop a thin column, and it matches the look of the Lokar shifter that juts out from the transmission hump. Thanks to a powerful Vintage Air A/C system you don't have to worry about long highway drives in warm weather, and a Kenwood AM/FM/CD/AUX/Satellite/Bluetooth stereo system fits in the center of the dash and powers speakers mounted in the kick panels. Everything is fresh, looks great, and really fits the theme of the truck. This is simply one of the coolest interiors we've ever seen.

A period-correct 307 V8 under the hood gives this truck performance to match its looks. It's a strong runner that moves this relatively lightweight C-10 with ease, and with only 1,938 miles on the build it all feels very fresh. The engine bay was beautifully finished, with matching olive paint on the firewall and inner fenders, a polished/finned air cleaner and matching valve covers, and olive paint on the block itself. Go fast goodies include an Edelbrock 4-barrel carburetor and Edelbrock intake, an Accell HEI ignition, and big aluminum radiator up front that keeps the whole show nice and cool. The engine spins a smooth-shifting TH350 3-speed automatic transmission that's a perfect match, while the heavy-duty 12-bolt rear end hanging out back can handle pretty much anything you can throw at it. Power steering and power front disc brakes are always a huge plus, while the big sway bar up front works with upgraded shocks, springs, and bushings all around that help set the stance and keep this beauty pegged to the road. The undercarriage was beautifully detailed and painted satin black so it can be shown off with pride, while this C-10's soundtrack is kicked up a notch thanks to a dual exhaust with chambered mufflers and dump-outs that exit just beyond them. 20-inch US Mags fit the fenders perfectly, wearing fat 245/45/20 front and 275/45/20 rear performance tires that finish the look.

Built for show yet absolutely functional, this recently restored pickup (only 1,938 miles on the build!) embodies vastly more work than your average restomod C-10. There's surely way more than the asking price tied up in this build, so if you like the look you're going to love the way it eats up the road. Call today!
