This pickup is your good timin', hot rod best friend. Just take one
look and you can see this 1965 Chevrolet C10 has all the right
custom features to attract the best kind of attention. Like a
pompadour haircut, this pickup is bold, classic, and has a standout
kind of cool.
Chevrolet never offered anything as standout as this Champaign color in 1966. Instead, the metallic shade has the right kind of luster to get you noticed. Plus, the full-length bright trim strip with a racing red stripe really gives this a performance appeal. The sleek fleetside body and the upgraded chrome on the bumpers and lettering on the tailgate all come together for a very modern feeling. This is only heightened even further by the large 22-inch Starr alloy wheels with an intimidatingly staggered stance. But this pickup still knows it need to have a workman attitude, and that's why there is a stray-in bedliner surround the glossy wood bed.
When you open the door, you soon realize that the red streak on the side of the truck is also a preview of the custom seating. You can instantly tell by the bolstering and custom '66 Chevy headrests that you'll be vastly more comfortable here than the bench that came from the factory. The carpeting matches the seats this nicely, and everything else is covered in the exterior-matching champagne color to give this whole pickup the instant impression of a very uniform custom. You'll love the vintage elements like the dash and the two-spoke steering wheel. These have been blended nicely with upgrades like the full Equus gauge package, and the modern AM/FM/CD stereo that also includes a Bluetooth mic for hands-free operation.
If the interior and exterior are so boldly performance-oriented, then you better believe the engine bay delivers the power. Chevy's robust 305 cubic-inch V8 is one of the best engines for upgrades, and this one already features performance extras such as a Holley four-barrel carburetor, Edelbrock intake, MSD ignition, and an aluminum radiator w/electric fan. And the long tube headers add even more power as they contribute to the rumble of the dual exhaust. All of this might be an aggressive package, but you won't be afraid to take this cool cat cruising anytime thanks to features like the three-speed automatic transmission, front disc brakes, and the C10's comfortable trailing arm rear suspension.
This Chevy makes you cool, intimidating, and awesome all at the turn of a key. Can you believe that's all available for under $30K?! Don't let this one slip away, call today!
