Take some time to check out all the custom details of this 1970
Chevrolet C10 pickup. But don't linger too long, because with the
amazing paint, custom A/C interior, and modern fuel-injected LS1 V8
under the hood, this truck will be hauling out soon.
The first thing you notice about this pickup is the paint. The satin-finish blue is a great modern color that helps it instantly identify with its custom nature. For a superior paintjob to be on a pickup, the body needs to be as straight as this one, because imperfections from the professional respray have no place to hide. It's a rare find on vehicles that were intended as workhorses, and it's proof there has be a real investment in this Chevy, right down to its fundamentals. But more than just the practical side, you love this machine because it's a wild custom creation. The lime green pinstripe provides a bold dividing line for the satin black upper paint. And that part of the two-tone is so well coordinated, even the bed cover is part of the paint scheme. And speaking of the bed, that single-piece unit has such a cool presentation, but it still features Rhino Liner to be quite functional. And while we know those big B.A.D. 20-inch alloys on the lowered suspension really steal the show, don't forget to check out the details, too. Items like the billet grille, crystal clear blue dot headlights, and the LED taillights surrounded by custom pinstriping are all part of the little things that make people understand that this is a very custom pickup from every angle.
Inside is a great mix of original elegance with plenty of upgrades for more modern style and comfort. The dash and doors have been painted the same great exterior blue, but now with some extra gloss and shine. You can instantly see that the bench seat has been upgraded for modern comfort with a cool ostrich inserts and modern bolster for all three sitting across. And when it's just you going for a cruise, the middle seat has a built-in cup holder for added modern comfort. Speaking of comfort, this pickup has plenty of upgrades, including Lokar shifter, tilt wheel, and an AM/FM/CD stereo w/AUX input for the most modern music players. And ice-cold R134a air conditioning means always staying cool while looking cool in this C10. You'll slip behind the aftermarket steering wheel that provides much more chrome than the original, and the Chevy bow tie etched into the center is a great detail touch. Beyond that is a full set of Dakota Digital gauges. Not only do they signal to you there's something special under the hood, but also their cool blue glow is just another great reminder of how well this fully coordinated package is.
More great harmonization happens under the hood where the whole engine bay matches the exterior blue right down to the custom covers on the engine. This makes for a complete custom build that you'll love to show off. Best of all, in-between those smooth blue fender walls lies a Corvette's fuel-injected LS1 V8 heart. The 5.7-liter inhales deeply with a cold air induction, and it exhales with authority thanks to Hedman headers that feed the thundering dual exhaust. To handle all this power, a 4L60E four-speed transmission that provides a nice balance of sturdy construction and overdrive cruising. In fact, the whole package is a nice balance of show & go. That's why you have great anytime features such as power steering, front disc brakes, and the comfortable trailing arm rear suspension that make these C10s so desirable. And this truck has a fully adjustable airbag system that allows you to go from a cushy ride on your way to the show to an attention-grabbing ground-hugger when parked.
Here is your chance at a beautifully-built custom that will never be mistake for anything else. But the only problem with a one-of-a-kind is when its gone, there won't be another. So don't miss out, call today!
