This 1966 Chevrolet was born a C15 but now has the right look of a C10 pickup. That means a cool hint of two-tone, real wood in the (now) short bed, a V8 under the hood, and an overall easy cruiser style.
The paint gives this the right kind of vintage distinction. The light blue with white accents looks like the ideal sky on a summer afternoon, and so it makes for an instantly endearing classic. It really has an honest feel, right down to the factory hubcaps. So the bumpers shine brightly without getting too fancy; there's attractive full-length trim; and there's real wood in the truck bed with the right feeling of age. This is a driver-quality pickup, and that also means it has a driver-ready attitude. So your overall impression is the kind of truck that you hop in on a whim and discover where that two-lane byway out of town goes.
The interior has a time capsule level of appeal. You have the classic cloth seat inserts, steel dash, rubber floor cover, and column shifter. It's hard to notice any updates/upgrades because even the Nova steering wheel has the right look of a workman's ride. So just like the exterior, this is not trying to be fancy, and instead, it's an honest style that delivers true vintage fun.
The heart of the cruiser-like appeal is the proper small block power under the hood. This 283 cubic-inch V8 has the right look vintage while also showing off newer fundamentals that keep it a solid running powerhouse. It inhales deeply with a four-barrel carburetor, and it exhales with a sweet tune from the dual exhaust. The three-speed manual transmission gives you full control for power both at the low and top end. It also rides quite nicely thanks to pieces like modern BF Goodrich tires and the C10's desirable trailing arm rear suspension.
This is the stylish truck that loves to remind you about what true classic truck appeal is. So don't miss this deal, call today!
