Here's your chance to get behind the wheel of a classic Chevy truck that features a factory appearance tastefully enhanced with a little modification, as well as road readiness that's hard to find in trucks of its era. This 1969 Chevrolet C10 is running great and has received just the right attention to leave it looking customized enough to set it apart from the crowd and as fresh as it did when it rolled off the line nearly a half century ago.
The bright red paint featured on this classic's exterior is a great match for its form. The shade of red is a couple of levels more electric than the version Chevy offered when this truck was new and adds substantial visual impact, though a good cut and buff would take it up a notch. A gracefully-shaped cowl hood sits front and center on its hood for some aftermarket cachet and extra clearance, yet still very much in keeping with this C10's rugged, serious demeanor. The two stretches of trim running the length of its sides provide evidence of how straight and well-aligned this truck is - notice how level they are as you trace them from front to back. The exterior fixtures look just as fresh as you could hope for - not only is the trim in good form, but both bumpers are table level and show no dings, and the glass on all four sides is surrounded by fresh looking rubber seals.
Take your place on the very clean black vinyl bench seat and you'll appreciate this Chevy's balance of classic nostalgia and real-world comfort even more. You won't find much evidence of wear across its surface and it's well-padded enough to provide plenty of comfort - even on longer trips. On both sides, the door panels have been refurbished to match the seating and sit tight and flush. In front of the stock Chevy steering wheel, the dash area has also been the lucky recipient of some serious effort, as its smooth red surface could only result from being taken down to bare steel before being repainted. The contrasting textured chrome of the instrument cluster adds a great look, and it houses an assortment of easily readable factory gauges that sit in place alongside a trio of aftermarket Sunpro counterparts to keep a read on motoring functions. Just above, the black vinyl dash pad shows no warpage or tears across its surface. Everything looks good in back, too - the bed area features a liner that has done its job well.
Worry-free drivability is a prized commodity in vintage vehicles and you'll find it here in this C10. The 350 cubic inch V8 sitting under the hood starts up quickly and runs with confidence-inspiring smoothness. It carries a chrome air cleaner and valve covers to enhance its look and they set off the signature orange of the Chevy engine nicely. With a Holley 4-barrel sitting on top for a little more power, this truck sounds plenty strong as it exhales into its factory headers. The powerplant pairs with a 3-speed automatic TH350 transmission to make for a drivetrain that's in very good form and fully capable of seeing frequent use. The featured power steering makes navigation a breeze. This great-looking, road-ready workhorse sits on a set of 15" stock Chevy rims, outfitted with Cooper Cobra G/T radials.
If you want a sharp looking classic truck that comes complete with the road-readiness you'd want in a frequent driver, you have to check out this 1969 Chevrolet C10 pickup. Call today!
