This 1972 Chevrolet C10 Cheyenne Super offers all the old school cool you could want in a classic pickup, but it also features the dependability you'd want in a frequent driver. It's got a believed-original power plant under its hood that pairs with a clean, well-fitted appearance that's sure to turn heads on the asphalt or at the work site.
This top-of-the-line trim Cheyenne Super wears a fine looking two-tone Dark Olive and White exterior that keeps its vintage appearance very much intact. The paint shows well even though it's been driven and has a nice, solid shine. This venerable truck closed out the second generation of C10s, which represented Chevy's first concerted effort at adapting what had formerly been fairly spartan workhorses for a wider audience. When you put it side by side with the C10s of the previous generation, you'll find that it actually bears a stronger resemblance to the more modern trucks that would follow it than the generation of C10s debuting the generation before. The brightwork - as well as the bumpers both fore and aft - are in solid shape, with nothing off kilter or showing any serious dings or blemishes, and the front grille looks impressively clean with a signature Chevy bowtie positioned at its center. Woodgrain trim lets everyone know this is a Cheyenne, and the interior of the bed was painted green to match, and looks like it's never hauled a thing in it's life. Talk about a handsome, driver grade truck, they don't get much cooler than this long bed.
The Olive Green interior retains a thoroughly factory configuration and has received the attention it's needed over the years to keep it looking sharp. The bench seat in its center features a cover bearing the green-and-black houndstooth check pattern that was very much en vogue in its day and combines vinyl and cloth that sits over ample padding, so it's plenty comfortable for even the longest of trips that would be a luxury for many classics but very much in the wheelhouse of this one. Underneath, a clean expanse of green carpeting insulates the cab, and the headliner above completes the look nicely. This is a warm interior - the door panels to each side sit flush with woodgrain accents matching those on the dash and every bright surface in sight looks well-prepped and shiny. The dash area is in good order, with a fresh-looking woodgrain bezel gauge panel surrounding an assortment of clear gauges and a pad above showing no visible cracks or warpage. Remarkably, there's still a factory push-button AM radio in place, although it's ready for an upgrade, and just like the factory trim sticker in the glove compartment dictates, this is a factory A/C truck. So regardless of how hot the weather gets outside, you'll have no issue staying comfortable - because the R134a air is blowing cold and strong in this classic.
Part of that driving pleasure comes from the 350 cubic inch V8 fitted between the fenders. Believed to be the original block, it has a correct 1972 performance look, complete with a Quadrajet 4-barrel carburetor atop a stock intake, a black snorkeled air cleaner, Chevy Orange paint on the block, and a set of matching orange valve covers. The small block sparks right up with a flick of the key thanks to a well-maintained alternator and starter, and the whole show is kept nice and cool by the big radiator up front. It's backed by a TH350 3-speed automatic (also believed original) and a 12-bolt rear end, so you don't have to worry about actually putting it to work (this would be an awesome tow vehicle for your Camaro!). The underside is typical of a vehicle that has lived someplace warm and out of the elements, and while it's not restored for the show circuit, it has been well maintained and drives superbly thanks to power steering and power front disc brakes. A pair of chambered mufflers give it a mellow exhaust note and those painted steel wheels adorned with chrome beauty rings and Bowtie center caps are fitted with fat 235/75/15 radials that set a great street stance.
If you're looking for a classic pickup with tons of curb appeal and a confidence-inspiring degree of road readiness, you need to check out this 1972 Chevrolet C10 Cheyenne Super. Call today!
