Looking for a bona fide classic truck that you can get behind the wheel of and enjoy right away? Check out this 1963 Chevrolet C10. It's a rock-solid driver and has plenty going for it, including an eye-catching exterior, a drivetrain that's clicking on all figurative and literal cylinders and a nicely finished bed area. It's standing by, ready for action and holds the promise of even more awesomeness with just a little well-placed attention.
When introducing its C10 series, Chevrolet equipped its new line with a more squared off, modern appearance that really sets it apart from its predecessor, the 3100 series, while still retaining plenty of vintage charm. In the process, they added a dropped center frame to allow the cab to sit lower over the wheels while also employing an independent front suspension to provide a much more comfortable ride than any of Chevy's previous truck offerings. The vibrant shade of red draped over this '63 really makes it come alive, with its slick texture and sleek shine, and it blends well with the nicely painted, white front grille and fresh chrome bumpers both fore and aft. Move around to the side and you can see the extensive contouring Chevy lavished upon its C10s. There are some great visual details as the front end gives way to the cab before transitioning into the relatively short, stepside back end - and all of it really lines up well here.
The interior has been nicely reconfigured, with a pair of very comfortable and well-padded, late-model cloth bucket seats now in place that sit over an expanse of fresh, contrasting carpeting, with the low profile manual shifter within easy reach. Take a look around inside and you'll notice right away that the interior paint is very well-applied - the red door panels are as smooth and shiny as you could want and sport fresh hardware while the clean contrasting dash area is also in good shape and retains its original overall appearance. A little touching up of the steering wheel, some attention to the speedometer - it's functional but engages a little late - and the addition of a stereo system at the center of the dash and this will be a very appealing vintage driving environment. In back, the bed area has been redone with dark wooden planks that sit between stainless steel reinforcements, with a Lo Pro bed cover on board for protection.
Beneath that broad hood, the engine bay is in good order and really will look sharp with a little detailing. At its center is a 305 cubic inch V8 that provides plenty of punch via the aluminum Edelbrock Performer RPM intake manifold and 4-barrel carb it now wears. The engine is running at the top of its game, pairing with a smooth-shifting 4-speed manual transmission while sending a rich, resonant note out through the aftermarket headers leading out to its dual exhaust, and an HEI ignition has also been added to heat up the available spark. Combine the coil suspension that's featured in both front and back with the C10's relative low center of gravity - optimized by a stance that's just right - and you have a classic pickup with a surprisingly refined, car-like ride as it cruises on its set of 15" steel wheels outfitted with Turbo-Tech G/T radials. A peek below reveals a straight undercarriage that appears solid, and is well positioned for plenty of future miles.
Looking very sharp and ready to hit the road right away, this 1963 Chevrolet C10 is a rare find. Call today!
