Streetside Classics - Nashville
6000 Reliance Dr
This 1975 Chevrolet C10 Silverado is a factory big block pickup. This was used as a base to rebuild it for some serious power. And there\'s also the sporty-looking exterior and custom A/C interior that make it an impressive total package. So while you may have first been attracted to this one because it\'s a well-priced Silverado, you\'ll soon discover there\'s even more substance to love within.
The Colonial Cream and Arctic White has the kind of nostalgic style you want on a 1970s machine. But there\'s also a modern clearcoat shine that shows that this was an investment later in life. That really encompasses the whole theme of this truck where you\'re going to see a well-integrated mix of vintage and upgraded that helps create a pretty cool pickup. Bright chrome bumpers, well-fitting doors, and straight full-length trim that divides the two-tone give this the look of an impressive vintage pickup. The billet grille puts an aggressive face forward. The lowered suspension, wide side exhaust tips, and upgraded 15-inch American Racing Torq Thrust wheels continue the sporty attitude. And beneath the aerodynamic folding tonneau is a useful long bed to remind you this is still a true pickup at its heart.
The bright interior is a nice difference to have in a truck. And they still left the carpeting in black so that you don\'t have to take off your work boots. There are nice features like the updated bench seat with comfy cloth inserts, and there are handsome billet inserts on the dash and doors. Even the dome light works. This was built with the driver in mind, including an upgraded NK4 sports steering wheel, aluminum pedal covers, and an auxiliary gauge package. So while there are details you may want to upgrade like the stereo or factory readouts, the overall style is quite thoughtful. You even have nice extras like dual fuel tanks, a tinted rear window, and recently serviced cold-blowing air conditioning.
Under the hood is what we all love to see: a bright and tidy big block V8. This 454 cubic-inch motor is the numbers-matching unit, but you can instantly tell it is far from stock. The consignor states it was rebuilt only about 10k miles ago, and it was enlarged to 468ci total. It has also been enhanced and fortified with a balanced rotating assembly, Comp Cams roller cam, and solid lifters. It inhales deeply through a Demon double-pumper four-barrel carburetor and Merlin aluminum intake. Plus, it exhales with authority as headers feed the rumbling H-pipe dual exhaust and Flowmaster mufflers. There are even good supporting components, like MSD Digital 6 Plus ignition, MSD Blaster 2 coil, a separate trans cooler, and an aluminum radiator with dual electric fans. The TH400 three-speed automatic transmission has a 3,000 stall converter to best deliver the powerband, and it feeds a stout 12-bolt Eaton 3.55 Positraction rear end. So it\'s a thoughtful muscle truck package. But you want this for more than just fun between the stoplights. That\'s why you also have power steering, wide modern tires, and power brakes with discs up front. It makes this a solid driver for cruising, too.
The sale comes with maintenance records, build receipts, additional trim, and a truck cover. This is a terrific-looking powerful custom that also keeps the right vintage attitude. So don\'t miss this cool long-bed Chevy. Call today!!!
