MotoeXotica Classic Cars presents this 1974 Chevrolet C10 is a beautiful Square-body survivor truck. This example underwent a frame-off restoration in August 2019 about four months after a previous owner acquired it. This fully restored truck hails from Rancho Santa Fe California on a California title! Made in General Motors' St. Louis, Missouri assembly plant (VIN code S), this truck has been redressed in its current Bright Yellow (code 524) paint with white trim and a replacement charcoal interior. During its five-month refurbishment, the cargo bed came off the frame, the body was stripped then repainted in the current yellow-with-white paint scheme. The original chrome has been properly restored and silver soldered. A chrome grille and sideview mirrors, dual side steps, a solid rear window, new weather-stripping and painted cargo bed sides. Equipment includes chrome trim, dual side-steps, a new wooden cargo bed floor with hidden hinges and more. The truck's paint and trim are in overall excellent shape, the bodywork is straight and solid, the engine bay is extremely tidy and the Super Star battery appears new. The frame has reportedly been coated with POR-15 corrosion preventative. This truck rolls on brand new Halibrand style wheels and new tires that really set the truck off! Under the hood is a refreshed 350 CID V-8 engine backed by a Saginaw Muncie SM 465 four-speed manual transmission. Driver convenience features include power steering and power brakes with discs in front. This truck has many new parts - power steering pump, spark plugs, spark plug wires, radiator hoses, seals, sending units, flywheel, starter, drive belts and carburetor jets in 2019. The wiring harness has been updated with one from a 1978 C10. Inside, the truck received a replacement charcoal vinyl interior with yellow and white trim. The bench seat and carpet look great while the white headliner offers good contrast to the gray. A black, two-spoke steering wheel faces the driver, along with new gauges that offer a full array of instrumentation but the heater blower is inoperable. The dash and inner door liners are all in very good order. The truck has new seat belts, a Classic Auto Sound AM/FM radio with aux connectivity and a floor-mounted shifter round out the interior. An all-new clean sheet redesign of General Motors' Chevrolet and GMC brand C/K-Series pickups debuted in mid-1972 for the 1973 model year. The redesign was revolutionary in appearance at the time, particularly the cab, departing from typical American pickup truck designs of the era. Aside from being near twins, the Chevrolet and GMC pickups looked like nothing else on the road. The third-generation trucks are colloquially known as the "Square-body" or "Box-body" generation. GM's official "Rounded-Line" moniker highlighted the pickup's rounded styling cues that were incorporated into the design. This included rounded windshield corners, rounded corners of the cab roof, rounded-corner doors which cut high into the cab roof eliminating roof height, slanted front fenders and rounded pickup box corners which allowed for rounded wraparound taillamps on Fleetside models, a first for GM pickups. The design also featured strong distinctive curved shoulderlines which rounded out below the beltline. The curved shoulderline continued across the back tailgate on Chevrolet Fleetside models. However, the low slope of the hood and rectangular front end of the truck originated the "square/box-body" nickname, which was propagated via truck magazines and word-of-mouth. GM's design engineers fashioned the "Rounded-line" exterior in an effort to help improve aerodynamics and fuel efficiency, using wind tunnel technology to help them sculpt the body. Other design traits include sleek sculpted body work, an aerodynamic cab with steep windshield rake, hidden windshield wiper anchor points and a unique available hidden radio antenna embedded into the windshield glass. There were two types of pickup boxes to choose from. The first type, called Fleetside by Chevrolet and Wideside by GMC, was a full width pickup box and featured a flared shoulderline to c
