614 E. Auto Center Dr.
This 1981 Chevrolet C10 Cheyenne is a true classic. It's a one-owner vehicle that was treated as a member of the family. Today that means this is a well-respected and low-mileage truck that has desirable features like air conditioning. And it even has that touch of custom style that comes from thoughtfully fun investments over the years.
We love a good classic truck because they have the feeling like they were made to last generations. It's why this one is so great to see. It has stories like the owner bringing home his son from the hospital in this pickup, and then years later, that son learned to drive in the same pickup. And this one really shows all the right signs of a valued member of the family. This has averaged less than 1,300 miles annually, and the straight panels, complete trim, and protected bed prove 40+ years of respect. Spending decades under the same ownership comes with the right care and investments. For example, when the paint started to look a bit tired and faded, this truck got a very cool upgrade. In 2018, the light silver was upgraded to this black and gunmetal gray you see today. It was a comprehensive upgrade where the two-tone is separated by a painted red pinstripe. The painted bumpers, blackout grille, red Chevy bow tie, black trim, and special Cheyenne fender badges make for an attractive detailed style. The color theme is unique, but since this even has the turbine-style wheel upgrade, we also can't help but think of the A-Tram. So this truck is not copying the show, it just wouldn't look out of place with Mr. T behind the wheel.
The interior is set up to have some extra style while also being easy to enjoy on a whim. The bench seat has been upgraded to black with gray cloth inserts, and it reminds us of the exterior two-tone, especially with the red seatbelts. There are great classic truck features, like the sliding rear window, tilt steering column, and wraparound gauge panel. It even has a working dome light and cold-blowing factory air conditioning. Plus, an upgraded AM/FM/XM stereo with USB and Bluetooth gives you proper driving music.
Under the hood is a classic 250 cubic-inch straight-six. It has the exact look of honesty you want in a truck with this kind of story. And when the consignor states it's the original motor, he'd know if it was ever out of the truck! So while we all know plenty of V8s that would fit under the hood, it's just more fitting to have this motor in this pickup with a cool story or one-owner care. And these inline-six motors are a terrific setup with an inherent smoothness and a deep well of torque. You take proper control with the four-speed manual transmission. And features like power steering, power brakes, and front discs keep this true classic a truly solid cruiser.
The sale comes complete with the owner's manual packet, decades of maintenance receipts going back to 1981, and the original bill of sale that proves this has been an Arizona truck sold just a few miles from our showroom. This is a unique Chevy with a terrific history. So if you're looking for a real classic pickup, call today!
