The Camaro might have not come around until '67, so this 1966
Chevrolet C10 pickup looks like the muscle car's preview. After
all, with a slick red on the outside, dark black (and A/C) on the
inside, and an enhanced small block under the hood, this is the
pickup that also wants to be a muscle machine.
This truck instantly makes the scene. That's thanks to a super shiny application of a modern red. The clearcoat finish does a terrific job reflecting the light no matter if it's the midday sun or the midnight neon, and this generation C10 is the perfect place for paint like this. The cool sheetmetal crease that extends into the optional styleside bed gives this vintage machine all sorts of angles to showcase its shine. But this truck's appeal is more than just its bold red and straight panels. The front bumper and grille have a mirror-like presence that is the unmistakable sign of investment. The side shines just as brightly with polished Rally wheels and stainless b-pillar trim. The lumber in the real wood truck bed also looks fresh, and we all love the one-piece custom rear end. All these details come together for a truly striking total package.
Inside, the bold red returns, but now it's joined by a muscle car favorite, black vinyl. The nice bench seat, matching door panels, and fresh carpeting tell you this has received all the right investments. Plus, extras like the AM/FM stereo with aux input and air conditioning means this one is truly a comfortable machine. But there's also much more here. Your left hand gets a grippy sports steering wheel with Chevy bow tie etched in the center, and you won't be able to resist resting your right one on the B&M shifter. Add in the full auxiliary gauge trio and large SunPro tach, and this interior is sure to get your heart racing.
All this go-fast appearance is due to the trucks heartbeat...a great-looking 350 cubic-inch V8 that has been upgraded throughout, including Holley four-barrel carburetor and an Edelbrock RPM air gap intake. This muscle symphony exits through performance headers that feed the rumbling dual exhaust system. This aggressive image is balanced with the everyday comfort of the three-speed automatic transmission, the C10's sought-after trailing arm rear suspension, and the grip BF Goodrich T/A tires.
Great looks, great interior features, and a great V8, and quality... that's why this C10 is a great deal that's turnkey ready to go cruising right now. So don't miss out. Call now!!
