This cool 1965 Chevrolet C10 pickup has a lot going for it. Surely you've already seen the vivid paint job, which is why we're "talking" to begin with. That brightly impressive interior has a lot going for it too. But the real story is the elegantly organized violence underneath the hood in the form of the 400 horsepower 355 V8 small block crate motor. Add in a 700R4 overdrive transmission and some choice options, and you're left with one of the most impressive C-10s in our current inventory.
Now that you've seen it, I think you'll agree that this '65 Chevy looks awesome in bright Neon Green. It is a lot more vivid than anything on the 1965 color chart of course, yet it looks exactly right on the interesting curves that make up the mid-60s pickups. The bodywork was done to a very good standard not too long ago, and it still shows well today, although there are signs that it has been driven, of course. Gaps are good all around, including the massive hood that wraps around and forms the tops of the fenders, as well as the cool "wings" at the back of the doors. All the side trim was deleted for a very smooth profile, but the cowl badges, bright front grille, and bright front bumper all remain, so no one will ever mistaken what this vintage truck truly is. The tailgate was smoothed and a roll pan was installed in lieu of a ream bumper, which allows for an all-together custom look that fits this truck's theme perfectly. And speaking of tailgates, you'll dig the oak bed, which is refinished like a dance floor, complete with chrome slats and plenty of matching neon green paint on all of the metal parts inside. You'll think twice before filling it with dirt, although it's certainly capable of hauling anything that fits.
A custom white vinyl bench seat dominates the interior, and its bright contrast makes it feel more luxurious than your standard 1965 Chevy pickup. The upholstery shows no wear, and both the door panels and headliner have been painted green to match the bodywork. Gray carpets fit well and still have a dark, rich look despite a few stains here and there, and it gives the interior a very finished look. The steering wheel is a custom neon green vinyl-rimmed piece with plenty of chrome, and it frames a full set of handsome white-faced Shark gauges in a custom billet panel that almost looks super slick. Additional goodies include cold R134a A/C and a Pioneer AM/FM/CD stereo fitted into the original slot in the dash, as well as a chrome tilt column, which adds some valuable space for the driver. You also get heavy-duty vinyl floor mats and seat belts that make it the kind of truck you could use every day without complaints.
In the 1960s, there was only one engine you wanted under the hood of your cruiser, and that was a small block Chevy. This one is a BluePrint Engines crate that displaces 355 cubic inches and was absolutely built to run, with 400 horsepower and plenty of torque. Augmented with aluminum heads, a hydraulic roller cam, and long-tube headers, it's running at 10:1 compression with enough pop to embarrass just about anyone you want on the street. Dressed to impress, the engine bay is a beautiful combination of chrome and neon green paint, including Chevrolet chrome valve covers and a matching air cleaner, set against the neon green firewall and black inner fenders. An aluminum radiator, power steering, power front disc brakes, and R134a refrigerant in the A/C system make it easy to drive and maintain, while an Edelbrock 4-barrel carb and aluminum intake help build horsepower. It has an awesome rumble to the exhaust with a nasty snarl when you dip into the throttle, all thanks to a dual exhaust system with glasspack-style mufflers. A 700R4 4-speed automatic overdrive transmission feeds what appears to be the original 12-bolt rear end and it sits on handsome chrome Rallys with staggered 225/70/15 front and 275/60/15 rear Goodyear white-letter radials.
This is the truck for the guy who values substance as well as style. Plenty of pop inside a loud presentation, what a killer truck! Call today!
