This 1969 Chevrolet C10 is a V8 pickup rendered in a slick modern
paint. So it's the weekend friend that helps with the chores on
Saturdays, hits the town in the evening, and then makes the scene
at the Sunday car show - truly the vintage ride that can do it
Only the right truck can wear a purple like this. The slick clearcoat finish and metallic elements make it a confidence color that draws attention with its electricity. For a color like this to be on a pickup, the body needs to be as straight as this one, because imperfections have no place to hide - a rare find on vehicles that were intended as workhorses. And it also helps the brightwork elements to standout, too. From the wide bumpers, to the custom grille, to the 15-inch alloys, all of these shiny elements give this C10 an upscale look. There's even an added cowl induction hood. But you've also got a trailer hitch at the rear, which reminds you that a shiny vintage machine like this can be useful for more than just grabbing attention.
When you open the door, you'll immediately notice the velour bench seat that has been recently covered to give you the ultimate in comfort. The black cloth nicely matches the carpeting and dash pad. These coordinate nicely with the exterior purple that returns on the door panels, roof, and lower dash. The total effect is a well-coordinated and comfy interior. You're going to enjoy slipping behind the Grant GT sports steering wheel, and gazing across the full gauge package that now includes a large AutoMeter tach mounted on the column. And there's even an AM/FM/cassette stereo w/CD changer. But we know your favorite feature will be the sliding rear glass. Combined with the side vent windows, you'll use this to enjoy everything from a nice evening breeze, to the rumble of the dual exhaust.
Just like the interior, the engine bay is a mix of black and purple. This allows the recently rebuilt 305 cubic-inch V8 to really radiate from within. In fact, the consignor says there's less than 250 miles on the rebuild, you can really see how fresh everything is, right down to the hoses. This is a strong runner that inhales deeply through a four-barrel carburetor, and it exhales with authority as shorty headers feed the dual exhaust. Out on the road, features like the three-speed automatic transmission, power steering, and front disc brakes combine to create that perfect classic cruiser feeling. Plus, this generation C10 has the sought-after trailing arm rear suspension that makes it more comfortable than most other vintage pickups.
Complete with owner's manual and original bill of sale, this is the slick purple pickup that has all the right moves. So at this price, you know you need to hurry to take it home. Call today!!!
