One of the most popular lines of pickups ever created has to be the
C/K series. These trucks were made from 1959 all the way until 2002
when they were replaced with the Silverado series. Interestingly
enough this C10 actually incorporates some of those modern
Silverado features making it a very unique pickup that is sure to
stand out from the rest. This 65 belongs to the first generation of
these trucks which has a huge following and many antique auto
fanatics would say this is their favorite of the C series. These
pickups not only had a great look but they incorporated a lot of
first that changed Pickups for years to come. The frame structure
was a new design which allowed the cab to sit lower than previous
models and with independent front suspension gave you the ride of a
car with the utility of a pickup. This one is coated in a very nice
light Matrix 2003 Land Rover Silver metallic paint which pairs
perfectly with the Blacked out grill and wheels. It is really a
tough looking truck rolling down the road. The builder has the
perfect touches of Black, Chrome and Silver creating a well though
out cohesive design. From front to rear every aspect of this truck
is in excellent condition so there are really no negatives or
issues to point out. It is the type of truck you should be able to
hop in and drive anywhere. The stance is great and the Foose legend
wheels suit it perfectly. It has 18x8 in front and 18x9 in rear
which are all wrapped with fresh Nitto Motivo tires.
Under the hood is where you will see the later model pickup
features start to be incorporated into the iconic C10. It is now
powered by a 6.0L Vortec LQ4 motor which is the common engine in
newer Chevrolet pickups. The motor along with the 4L60E automatic
transmission has been entirely rebuilt so this pickup has many many
years left of reliability and enjoyment. LS7 valve springs were
added into the motor and it delivers an excellent sound through the
2.5 inch exhaust into Magnaflow mufflers. Cooling is never an issue
thanks to the aftermarket aluminum radiator and electric fans. From
the Eddie motorsport hood hinges to the painted inner fenders the
entire engine compartment is very clean and show ready. Not only
does the truck have the modern drivetrain but it has been upgraded
with all power options as well. This includes power brakes, a 500
series power steering gear box, power door locks, power windows,
and Vintage AC. It even has a modern Scytek security system with
remote start. The doors are equipped with the Easy Latch system
from Trique are work wonderfully. You really couldn't ask for any
more. When someone poses the question to us of "what does it need?"
The answer truly is nothing. Other nice features include the 12
bolt Moser 5 lug rear end with 3.73 gears, CPP 13 inch disc front
brakes, CPP hydraulic shocks/springs and a 20 gallon CPP gas
The interior of the truck incorporates the Maroon color like what
you saw on the Vortec engine cover. It has dual adjustable bucket
seats from a 2000 Honda that are very comfortable and done in Grey
with 3 point seat belts. The upholstery work is in great condition
as is the carpeting, dash paint, and door panels. The custom center
console features nice upholstery as well with a wood grain custom
center piece. It houses cup holders, power window and lock
switches, storage space and the Pioneer navigation system. The
stereo is an Antique Auto radio which is a newer system that is
built specifically to look like the older original stereo. It
utilizes aftermarket speakers and an amp to deliver a great sound.
The gauges have been redone with with Dakota Digital analog gauges
which nicely fit into the original style housing. The tilt column
was painted to match the rest of the interior and is finished off
with a billet steering wheel.
We cant talk about this truck without mentioning the wood bed. This
is one of our personal favorite features on these vintage Pickups
and this one does not disappoint. It has been refinished with Black
Walnut and stainless strips which are absolutely beautiful. Pop the
hood and lower the gate at shows because the bed is definitely
something worth showing off.
This is one very well built pickup that is sure to not disappoint.
If you are considering it then be ready to buy when you check it
out because there isn't going to be anything to turn you away once
you see it in person.
