Sometimes people just know how to build a custom pickup right. This
1963 Chevrolet C10 is a great example. The truck was restored less
than 3,000 miles ago, and a new V8 was installed around 500 miles
ago. So while the pictures show you a stellar presentation, just
know that it also has a freshness that very few vintage pickups can
match at this price.
The first thing you notice about this truck is the paint. It's called Silver Ice, and it has a fantastic metallic element. So while it looks great under our showroom lights, the moment the sunshine hits it, it radiates like a shining star. The whole truck pops with a deeper shine than you can get from some chrome. That's why even major pieces have painted to match this color like the bumpers, grille, and the steel cores of the iconic Rally wheels. The reason for this kind of investment in the paintwork is because the body looks so nice. We don't know if this truck had a fortune spent on bodywork, or if they just found one of the few that never went to work, but the result is sheetmetal that showcases all of the C10's stylish creases. All the details seem to fall into place, too, with bright wood paneling in the bed that looks like a parquet floor.
Inside the bright silver theme continues, and it's joined by an even more aggressive red. You'll especially appreciate the cherry hue upgrade on the bench seat, because from the moment you sit down, you'll feel how fresh and comfortable it is. And speaking of comfortable upgrades, the AM/FM stereo is now a Retrosound modern digital tuner. Once you feel the grip of the newer Chevy steering wheel and gaze at the full Dolphin gauge package, you begin to get that performance tingle that tells you the interior and exterior were not the only pieces that went through a thoughtful restoration.
While the body is quite fresh, the block for the 350 cubic-inch V8 is even fresher. It was installed around 500 miles ago. And you can tell from the supporting components like the alternator and brake booster that all the right investment were made throughout the engine bay. But more than just the reliability that comes from investment, you'll love this V8 because it has a powerful presence. It inhales deeply through the Edelbrock four-barrel carburetor and Edelbrock intake. The motor exhales with authority as the headers add more power while contributing to the rumble of the dual exhaust. And because this is a great combination of newness and power, you'll be glad to know it has comfortable driving features like the TH350 three-speed automatic transmission, power steering, front disc brakes, and the C10's sought-after trailing arm rear suspension. So this is the vintage pickup you can comfortably show off everywhere.
Fresh, striking, and unique - you usually have to pay much more for this kind of standout total package. But this restored Chevy is ready for you right now, so don't miss out. Call today!!!
