1972 Chevrolet C-10 Pickup
It's no secret that Chevrolet builds some of the most celebrated
trucks on the planet. From the AK era forward, every generation has
found a solid following and, eventually, firm footing in the
collector car world. Over the past few years, we've featured plenty
of vintage, ground-pounding bowties, and this righteous purple
people eater is just the latest in a series of sweet C/K head
For consignment a resto-mod C-10 with all the right
moves...straight panels...Check!...great chrome...Check!...A new
Interior...Check!, and a powerful mill....Check! If you have an
affinity for purple Check! This truck out.
A shaved modified rear with widened fender tubs for a lower ride,
dripping in purple, is seen at the very back. A new bed lined with
white oak, and purple dividers shines brightly. Moving forward to
the cab it's also draped in purple with chrome surrounds on the
doors and windshield as well as rear window. The front of the truck
shows pretty much standard C-10 hood and grille, both in near
perfect condition again hood and front fenders painted in....
purple! Polished Eagle alloys are strapped to all 4 corners.
A light gray cloth covered bench stretches from door panel to door
panel and has dark gray bolsters. White vinyl framed by purple
metal make up the door panels. A Sheridan style pattern frames
horizontal pleating, and a white arm rest. An original C-10 style
dash with an added steering column tachometer is fronted by an
original steering wheel which is showing cracking. The floor is
carpeted with purple thick pile carpeting, and gray carpet floor
mats. The center of the dash has an aftermarket AM/FM/Cassette
radio, and 3 new gauges hanging from below.
Simple yet very effective a 1970's 400ci Small Block fed by an
Edelbrock Scorpion Intake, topped by a Holley 750 CFM carburetor is
in the pristine engine bay. Headers help this mill exhale, and
exhaust system is in good condition. A TH 350 3-speed automatic
transmission is attached and shifts smoothly.
Showing very clean, black paint in excellent condition save for
some water drips, is broken up by a purple driveshaft.
A fine job on this restoration gives this C-10 a unique look, all
the while retaining its mostly original form. Imagine a purple hay
hauler, lowered, beautiful bed, and powerful engine. I think it
would be safe to say this ain't no farm truck!
