1969 Chevrolet C10 Short bed Pickup

For consignment, the desirable short bed version of the \'69 Chevy C10 in spectacular orange and white. This is a show truck in original configuration, no LS swap here, just a pure big block representation of what it may have looked like in the dealership lot. There were four different two-tone configurations on Chevy trucks and this shows the two-tone in which the entire cab and between body moldings is white.

The orange and white paint scheme is striking on this truck and we had a hard time finding any imperfections. It just begs to be photographed in front of a barn or cornfield, because a lot of old C10\'s were right at home on the farm and the two-tone paint was a way to dress up your work truck. A mirror-like chrome bumper on the front picks up on the gleaming metal surround of the grille and the blue bowtie just leaps off the hood. A CST/10 8 396 emblem indicated \"Custom Sport Truck\". Shiny mirrors, door handles and a fuel cap protrude from the clean paint while an aftermarket tonneau cover provides a black cover for the bed. A peek behind the tailgate and we see a clean bed with textured orange paint. The view of the back reinforces the square body moniker and it is spotless. 15-inch sport wheels were a great choice by Chevy back in the day and still look great today.

If you doubt this was intended as a work truck and specifically a farm truck, check out the stunning Sheridan scroll design on the black vinyl door cards. No city slicker would have driven this back in the day. Door actuators, window cranks, and armrests all accounted for here. The black vinyl bench picks up the Sheridan scroll and looks immaculate. The three spoke steering wheel is brushed aluminum and rubber and frames a simple gauge cluster with crisp, easy to read dials. From the center right, the dash is painted body color orange, and an AM/FM radio sits above the climate controls and ignition. The black carpet is in fine condition, as is the padded, black vinyl ceiling pad which mimics the seat pattern design. Open the glove box and voila! The SPID decal is there in all its glory to show you exactly how this truck was delivered when new.

Get out the microfiber rag because that\'s all you\'re going to need to spiff up this engine bay. Inside, we have the original 396ci V8 good for 325 horsepower tied to a correct TH400 3-speed automatic transmission. Fuel is fed through a single 4-barrel carburetor. A 12-bolt rear occupies the axle housing 3.73 gears. Power drum brakes are there to stop the truck.

The show-quality cleanliness continues under here, wow! One of the cleaner undersides we\'ve seen in a while. You will not be disappointed until you get caught in an unexpected rainstorm coming home from the car show. But here\'s where that microfiber comes in handy again. Beautiful dual exhaust leads into FlowMaster mufflers then exit behind each back wheel, no fancy tips here, just the factory look.

We Granny\'d this beauty out of the garage so as not to kick up gravel. We could imagine this is how it felt when you picked your truck up from the dealership in 1969, it would never be this clean again. That is, before they were show trucks. The 396 sounds great and responds well to the throttle with plenty of giddy-up. The tonneau waves gently in the wind we create, and the brakes slow the whole party down. Back to the garage where we make sure it\'s clean and ready for the showroom. We note however, that the reverse lights don\'t operate.

If you\'re looking for a turnkey show truck C10, take a gander at this one. I mean, if you want to put it into service and haul hay with it, that\'s up to you, it\'s your truck, (or will be). But this one could easily sit comfortably in a museum too as an example of one of Chevrolet\'s most iconic trucks. Stop by the mall and see this beauty up close.
