This 1970 Chevrolet C10 Custom has the instant appeal of a long bed classic pickup, but there's also something more here. Maybe it's the shimmering paint, or the rumble of the exhaust, but you just know it's the kind of vehicle that gets attention without being obvious about it.
The two-tone green and white has all the right premium pickup looks from the era, but you can also tell that this has a modern radiance the factory could never deliver. It fits in with the old-school truck .....
scene, but it also really pops in the sunlight and catches the neon lights perfectly when you're out cruising on a Saturday night. The American Racing Outlaw wheels are a particularly nice addition because the high-polish look goes nice with the mirror-like chrome bumpers. But the part we probably like the most is the C10's premium wood-like trim that looks great sunning the full length and on the tailgate. And as good as this looks, we also want a long bed pickup that's ready to work. So the liner paint on the bed floor means this one still knows how to pull real truck duty.
Inside is more of that great classic pickup feeling, but as you dig deeper, you also find some nice features. Some of them are thoughtful classic details, like the door panels with the wood-like inserts and western-style pattern. Other pieces are well-integrated upgrades, like the comfy cloth inserts in the bench seat and the retro-style AM/FM/cassette stereo. And when you love a classic pickup, nothing quite beats the old-school feeling of a column manual shift.
The 350 cubic-inch small-block V8 looks quite nice in the engine bay. It's a 1970-correct block, and it has a natural look, right down to the decals. And they invested in this one properly with newer elements, like the alternator, belts, and master cylinder. But what you'll really like is the extra kick of a hidden performance secret. The V8 inhales deeply with a four-barrel carburetor, and it exhales with authority as Hooker long tube headers add power while contributing to the rumble of the H-pipe dual exhaust. The three-speed manual transmission gives you nice control over the motor. Plus, you have power brakes and the C10's desirable trailing arm rear suspension to make this feel good out on the road.
This is the chiseled good looks of a classic C10 long bed with extra flash and substance added. That makes for a great total package. Call today!!!
