This 1965 Chevrolet C10 is all about vintage distinction. After all, when was the last time you saw a cool stepside in long bed form? And the whole pickup loves to show off a bright style while never losing sight of an honest day's work.
A truck like this is a real treat. It's the kind of timeless package that (just like a hard day's work,) always gets respect. The teal paint has a bright look and the right 1960s vibe. And the white on the bumpers, grille, and top of the cab has a nice two-tone effect. The details are fun, like how the factory-style hubcaps are the largest pieces of brightwork. And the long bed means even more space to show off all that real lumber on the floor. Nothing here is too fancy to ever get you accused of owning a trailer queen. But there is an overall level of quality here that comes from the little details, like newer wiring and clean glass.
The blue and white two-tone of the exterior returns inside on the custom bench seat with tuck and roll inserts. But now a golden glow takes center stage. It has a very classic look and feel, right down to the Delco AM radio that's still there for display. But just like a good truck, there was a nice functional upgrade, because the Hurst floor shifter has a crisp and confident action.
Lift the hood and see a true marvel. Hardly any of the smooth running straight-six engines are seen in '60s vintage Chevy trucks anymore. Despite the fact that these anvils of a motor were the backbone for the company's dependability reputation, today they get replaced by the small-block V8s. We understand why this happens and sell plenty of those custom trucks. But with so many of those out there, it's refreshing to see the long block. And this one holds a little secret of its own. While it has the badging for the era-correct 230 cubic-inch motor, it decodes to a larger 250ci unit. It fires up easily, idles nicely, and pulls strong thanks to the control of the three-speed manual transmission.
This is a classic, honest, and cool long bed stepside pickup. So if you like something truly vintage that also has true distinction, call today!
