This 1971 Chevrolet C10 will attract plenty of attention by virtue of its inspired paint scheme and tasteful modifications, but it's got more to offer than just its visual impact. It also features just the right collection of comfort and convenience features that pair with its strong-running and well-configured drivetrain to make it an absolute pleasure to drive as well.
By the time this '71 rolled out, Chevy was well into its second generation of C10s and had made it a priority to give them a stouter, more rugged look to set them apart from their predecessors. It would prove to be a wise move, as the new line not only enjoyed strong sales success, but has since become a favorite among custom truck enthusiasts. The intricate paint scheme on this classic makes good use of Chevy's redesign work, with its maroon shade surrounding the lower portion of the truck before giving way to silver that's set apart by a sweeping accent on the sides and back. The cowl hood up front adds an aggressive touch to the mix, while the standout billet front grille as well as the overall badging-deleted appearance, really allows the paint to take center stage while giving this vintage Chevy truck a very effective air of customization. Sturdy construction and the good fortune to have been treated with respect over the years have combined to leave it straight and strong. The cab lines up well with the bed area and you'll find nice, even gaps surrounding the hood and doors.
The interior underscores the notion that this truck was configured to be enjoyed as a frequent driver, as it's in sharp condition throughout and affords a useful collection of amenities. The silver cloth bench seat is in top form, still showing the contour it had when installed and featuring a signature Chevy bowtie at its center, while the carpeting running below is still at its best. Just in front of the nicely branded billet steering wheel, the dash area has been refurbished and looks great. Before being repainted, you can see some thorough prep work went into the process, as its steel surfaces are very smooth. A thorough collection of clear factory gauges sits in a very clean textured instrument panel, while the JVC AM/FM/CD stereo at the center also offers iPod compatibility and teams with relatively new speakers to guarantee that your audio will be very much on point. The air conditioning is running strong through a set of underdash vents to keep things comfortable inside. The liner protecting the bed in back has done its job well - while you can see that this a working truck and not a trailer queen, there are no serious scuffs or divots in sight.
Things are looking impressive just underneath that cowl hood. The 350 cubic inch crate V8 sitting at the center of the engine compartment carries an Edelbrock 4-barrel carb and intake manifold and benefits from a chrome dress-up kit that has its components looking their best, highlighted by the clean, glossy black surfaces of the inner fenders and firewall. Having logged just about 25,000 miles since its installation, the engine is very much in its prime and teams with a 700R4 4-speed automatic transmission that provides a welcome overdrive gear for low revs at highway speeds. Power steering makes this sharp-looking Chevy easy to navigate, while power brakes that feature discs up front bring its Torq Thrust wheels to a dependable stops.
