C10 1971

Title Status --
Exterior Color Torch Red
Interior Color Gray


This 1971 Chevrolet C10 restomod has been given investments in all the right places. Bold/slick paint, a leather-lined A/C interior, overdrive transmission, and a small block V8 with the displacement and power to out-gun the big block. It all makes for a fully restored truck with the kind of style and substance combo that's great to have from the first moment you get behind the wheel.

Torch red on this truck is borrowed from a fifth-gen Corvette. It's a bold shade that's the right way to announce a fully-built custom like this. The truck was given a full body-off restoration around 2001, and it has been treated with top care ever since. In fact, with less than 5,200 miles on the build, you know it has spent most of its time protected in the garage. So the vibrant Vette red has a good gloss that loves to show off the crisp lines. It also gives this an intimidating look that goes with the big power bulge of the upgraded cowl hood. Plus those 20-inch US Mags wheels give this a great power pickup stance. But while this one uses a ton of flair to be impressive (just look at the mirror-like bumpers,) don't forget to see the value in the details. Everywhere from the newer seals to the gel-coated bed are about long-lasting quality.

The interior is a fully upgraded package, but it still loves to give you the right hints of vintage. For example, the gray color has a modern feel to it, but the fresh door panels still keep the classic C10 Cheyenne western-style pattern. The seat is borrowed from a later model Silverado. So you have a premium leather setup that gives you the option of sitting three across or you can fold down the center seat for a center console and bucket-like individual comfort. Fresh carpeting a smooth dash pad, and clean fundamentals make this quite inviting. There are worthwhile upgrades like power windows, shoulder seatbelts, an AM/FM/cassette stereo, and cold-blowing R134a air conditioning. It's also a well-done driver's package with a Lecarra sports steering wheel, a tilt column, and full readouts with Camaro-style tach.

The engine bay has a tidy and thoughtful presentation that loves to show off a proper V8 powerhouse. It looks amazing with smooth color-matched inner walls and plenty of polished components. Plus, having the engine block, alternator, compressor, brake booster, and more color-matched in red is an award-worthy touch. But more than just look awesome, this is a V8 built for power. This 400 cubic-inch V8 was bored .30 over (406ci total) to give you a big block displacement in a small block weight. It was also fully built during the restoration to include LT-1 cylinder heads, a Stage II performance hydraulic camshaft, an upgraded polished intake, and topped with an Edelbrock four-barrel carburetor. A nice set of headers add power and rumble as they feed the dual exhaust and Flowmaster mufflers. You'll spot good supporting components, like an HEI ignition, steel braided lines, and a large aluminum radiator. The 700R4 four-speed automatic transmission was given a full service within the last few months. So it's ready for both power drives and easy overdrive cruising. Add in power steering, power brakes w/discs up front, and the C10's trailing arm rear suspension, and this powerful pickup is also a solid driver.

The sale comes with terrific paperwork. This includes the factory buildsheet, owner's manual, original warranty card, build receipts, maintenance records, service manuals, and restoration photos. This truck has a cool look, cool stance, a cool A/C interior, and terrific power. It all makes for a red-hot custom you know you need to get in your garage. Call today!!!
