We have this really great Chevy C-10 short bed pick up at our showroom. Built to be a bit of a Rat Rod, the body has some rust areas that were left and painted over to give it that rustic original look. It was painted in matte red and has some great pin striping and graphics.
THM350 Auto Transmission
Front Disc Brakes
American Racing Wheels
Electric Exhaust Dumps
The interior is very nicely done. The bench seat is covered in red vinyl and the carpet is updated with 80/20 loop.
The dash was left partially original and has a little bit of rust in keeping with the Rat Rod look.
The owner purchased this new headliner, but wasn't sure he really wanted to install it. It's the buyers choice.
You can see that the truck was originally a 283 ci V-8. We did not see a vin # on the block, but it does decode to be a 283. We have a picture of the block number in a following photo.
Included is a supply of Ratwax which is a product for matte finish cars and trucks to keep your no shine vehicle looking great.
In the bed, is a real metal sign and a classic old Saphire Motor Oil can that are attached to the plywood.
The engine compartment is very well done.
The undercarriage also shows the work that went into this truck.
As we mentioned, the body has areas of rust which were deliberately left to give the truck the rat rod look. This really does not take away from this great truck. Mechanically it is great.
We are totally impressed with the performance of this truck. It starts every time, does not overheat, and is really fun to drive.
We have many more photos if you are interested.
Again, please fell free to call Dave at 214-213-772 or Maris at 214-616-2317. We can also assist you with financing if you would like.

Larry Edsall, founding editor of the ClassicCars.com Journal, and I enjoy a mutual passion not only for the written word, but for motor racing in its many incarnations. We have been around the sport for longer than either of us cares to admit – but we both got to experience a gilded age, Larry in […]
Before I ever wrote about cars, I wrote about sports, albeit including motorsports, and one of the first things a young sportswriter learns, at least back when I was learning, is “there’s no cheering in the press box.” Your press pass entitled you to the best seat in the stadium or arena or whatever playing […]
With seemingly all car events canceled, our editors have some time on their hands, which means we’re doing a lot of “bench racing” these days. The subject of favorite racing drivers came up. Since managing editor Tom Stahler and founding editor Larry Edsall each has a long history covering motorsports, we suggested each select his […]

And now he and his Roland Sands Design firm was worked with Time Concepts to produce the Icon Signature Series: Roland Sands watches. The watches not only […]
And the winner is… This has been an interesting exercise. Such as most car-centric discussions, there was disagreement, many laughs, camaraderie and more disagreements. But here is where it got interesting: After so many votes from readers, at the deadline, the ZR-1 and Miata each got 50 percent of the vote. Yes. That is correct. […]
Don Yenko built a reputation for providing ground pounding conversions, ala Yenko Super Cars, where customers could purchase Yenko modified Chevys going back to 1966. Wait? In 1966 Chevrolet had not introduced the venerable Camaro to the public, so what did Yenko have from the factory stable he could modify to become his inaugural Chevy […]
Front-engine water pumpers for a very long time have been the red-headed stepchildren at Porsche. Coming of age at high school and college in the 80s, I saw the release of the “Shark” 928. Then there were the several incarnations of the 924, 944 and 968. Porsche may have alienated a few of the 911-or-nothing […]
It is now quite a few years ago that Porsche had its American headquarters in Reno, Nevada. With so many of its customers in nearby California, and from the perspective of corporate taxation, the move from New Jersey probably made sense. However, it didn’t take very long for German executives to tire of the even […]
The coronavirus pandemic is having a major impact on automotive events, many of which are being canceled or postponed. Here are the latest announcements: Charles Richmond, the Duke of Richmond & Gordon, has announced postponement of the Goodwood Festival of Speed, the popular British classic car gathering that was scheduled for July 9-12. “We obviously […]
Quite a few police cars have been featured on Jay Leno’s Garage. Jay previously drove a 1961 Dodge Polara that served with the California Highway Patrol. This time, he’s looking at a another ’60s Dodge patrol car. “This is the car that was around when I was a kid, that always struck fear when you saw it in the […]
