This 1972 Chevrolet C10 Cheyenne Super is an honest-looking pickup right down to the patina in the two-tone. But as you dig deeper, features like cold-blowing A/C, four-wheel disc brakes, and recent suspension investments make this workhorse also a very fun classic cruiser.
This is a truck that wears its history with pride. The story we are told is the consignor's father bought it from its first owner in the 1980s, and it's been in the family ever since. That explains why you get .....
such a vintage presentation mixed with proper care today. The trim tag confirms the yellow and white color theme is the factory-correct color combo, so what you see is the original application. What's more impressive is that the full package has aged into a well-earned patina after years of getting the job done. It's part of a vintage but handy balance that this truck presents. The front brush guard, large towing mirrors, and steel bumper with hitch are workman features that are still useful today. And of course, this is a long bed pickup, and a weathered look means you'll never worry about using this classic for real truck duty. But the overall investment in this will prove that it's also easy to enjoy this one for just being a vintage Chevy.
The interior strikes the right balance of classic and comfortable. For example, you have the vintage style of iconic houndstooth cloth inserts on the seat, but these have the fresh feel of a more recent investment. Newer carpeting, a newer windshield, newer window felts, and a smooth dash pad keep this inviting. But the door panels, wood-like trim, and dual-spoke steering wheel remain feeling stock and original so that this reminds you of its family history. Because this also likes to be a cruiser, there are also the right vintage but useful features like the Pioneer AM/FM/cassette stereo, cup holders, and cold-blowing factory air conditioning.
The engine bay continues this truck's honest look. And this 350 cubic-inch V8 is believed to be the original and decodes to the correct year to back that up. Topped with a four-barrel carburetor, it makes good power as it also gives a nice tune to the dual exhaust. We usually like to mention how the trailing arm rear suspension makes these a great cruiser, and they do, but in this case, we're really impressed with the front end. There were more recent investments in powder coating the A-arms, replacing the bushings, new tie rod ends, a new pitman arm, and new shocks. So it has a particularly solid ride. And it's a true easy cruiser with a three-speed automatic transmission, power steering, and an upgrade to four-wheel power disc brakes with a CPP master cylinder and proportioning valve.
This is the kind of respected classic that wears its history and has the right features to make it easy to tell its story everywhere. So if you're looking for an awesome-driving patina pickup, call today!
