This restored 1972 Chevrolet C10 Pickup is anything but
conventional, the official meaning of the "C" designation for drive
train. Instead, this truck is a wolf in sheep's clothing, a 4-wheel
drive, go anywhere, haul anything beast. The 4x4's are getting
harder and harder to find, so often a 4x4 conversion is the only
way to go. Don't sweat it, this one has already been done! Just
lock the hubs and roll!
1972 was the last year of the second generation Chevy C/C pickups. They had twelve years to refine and perfect the looks, power, and suspension, and they really nailed it on all three counts. These Chevrolet C10's are highly desirable collector trucks, and for good reason. They're drop-dead gorgeous, well built, and easily drivable in traffic.
Outside, the full restoration gives this truck a calculated tactical look. A mean and unique Silver Green, and black accents-bumpers, fender flares, tonneau cover, rear stripe, and wheels-this truck has the "it" factor. It also looks great with a 1969 grille, one more feature that sets this truck apart and keeps people guessing. Beyond swagger, this truck is off-road capable. Great for hunting and fishing, getting into the mountains, and more-where do you want to go? This '72 C10 will take you there.
Power is provided by the venerable 350 V8, a Chevy motor with great pedigree, abundant parts, and a broad knowledge base. You can't go wrong! A three speed automatic transmission and manual transfer case get the power to two or four wheels, as desired. This truck benefits from rear leaf springs, boosting the burly factor, standard equipment only on the 30 series trucks.
The inside has clearly benefited from the restoration as well, and is dressed all in black to match the theme. Black vinyl bench seat-freshly upholstered, black dash, door panels, and floor mats-all look like new. No cracks in the steering wheel, even the pedals are in good shape. The stereo system has been upgraded with speakers in the door and a removable face stereo in the dash. All in all, there's not much more to ask, except perhaps, "Where do I sign?"
