614 E. Auto Center Dr.
This 1972 Chevrolet C10 is a cool patina pickup. But don't let the workman attitude fool you, because there's serious small block power lurking beneath that hardy sheetmetal.
It's hard not to love the look of patina on a pickup. After all, it instantly gives this the appearance of what these trucks were meant to do: survive for generations. This is actually a well-engineered look that not only has a carefully faded green, but also a weather grille surround and a windshield frosted around the edges. And then you start to see the straightness of the panels, and the completeness of the full-length trim on this long bed pickup. It starts to reveal the true solid nature of this C10.
Inside is more of the carefully-crafted classic attitude. We especially like it on the western-style pattern on the door panels and seat. These were for the premium C10s back in the day, and you can tell they invested in fresher updates for these important pieces. In fact, you get the full classic presentation, right down to the AM radio that's still on display. And the dual-spoke steering wheel has that unmistakable grippy feeling that seems to have been lost over the decades.
Your first look under the hood shows more of this worn-in honesty on the inner fender walls. But then you start to notice the bright heart in the middle, and there's no mistaking the extra flair when someone invests nicely in the motor. This 350 cubic-inch V8 inhales deeply with a Holley QFT four-barrel carburetor and performance intake. And the headers let this exhale with authority as they add power while feeding the dual exhaust. It's a pickup with some extra power for the streets, and so you'll appreciate good driving features, like power steering, a three-speed automatic transmission, and power brakes w/discs up front. And don't forget about the C10's trailing arm rear suspension that make these great on the road.
This truck has a cool patina look and an extra powerful heart. That makes for a terrific classic pickup. Call today!!!
