This 1971 Chevrolet C10 Cheyenne Super is a terrific vintage pickup with just the right updates to keep it a terrific cruiser. It's that ideal mix of two-tone nostalgia and hardy V8 power that makes for the kind of classic that will make you drive past the car show just because you're enjoying yourself too much behind the wheel.
A color like Dark Olive Green represents the 1970s perfectly. The only way it could get any more vintage is by making it part of a two-tone in a timeless white. The trim tag tells us it's the factory-correct color combo, but it has the luster and shine that lets you know this was part of a professional respray done within about the last five years. And the restoration had an eye for details. That's why there are mirror-like chrome bumpers, clean lines, and the Cheyenne Super's unique wood-like inserts in the full-length trim. There have been some more modern upgrades along the way, and they seem to be just as much about function as they are style. For example, the liner paint in the bed and thick rubber bed mat look good, and it also means this looker can help with the chores if you want. Plus, the 20-inch US Mags wheels give this a sporty stance, and at the same time, allow you to fit better modern tires.
The classic style continues inside with more of the attractive green. There have been updates to pieces like the carpeting, dash pad, and other fundamentals, but it all stays correctly vintage. Even the little things there, like the working horn and dome light. And the premium Cheyenne Super means nice classic details, including the wood-like trim and western-style pattern embossed in both the seat and doors. But this also likes to be a cruiser for modern times, and so there are nice driving upgrades like the AM/FM/CD stereo, upgraded speakers, and provisions for air conditioning (it's running modern R134a but the blower needs servicing.) And you just know you'll get the right old-school tingle the moment you grab the vintage steering wheel and gaze at the crisp gauge package.
Under the hood is a tidy small block that's made to look quite stock. But if you dig a little deeper, you'll discover that this is a younger 350 cubic-inch crate motor and it's topped with an Edelbrock AVS2 four-barrel carburetor. It makes for a hardy heart and proper V8 power. And overall, you can see a solid investment in maintenance, right down to supporting components, like the newer alternator and brake booster. This generation C10 makes for a great cruiser thanks to the trailing arm rear suspension, and the suspension has even been refreshed recently to continue feeling its best on the road. This appeal is furthered by a three-speed automatic transmission, power steering power brakes, front discs (with fresh-looking calipers and rotors), and grippy sport tires.
The sale comes complete with the original warranty card and owner's manual. This is the classic C10 that wants to be enjoyed to the fullest. So if you love hitting the road and turning heads, you know this Chevy is irresistible. Call today!!!
