1969 Chevrolet CST10 Pickup
The 1967-72 Chevrolet pickup trucks stand at the intersection of
modern passenger-car-like comfort and style with tough Chevrolet
truck durability. Fully independent front suspension combined with
available coil spring rear axle brought an unprecedented level of
drivability to the American �-ton light truck which was
increasingly pressed into service not only for work but also
recreational activities. At the top of the available trim levels
for 1969 10-series Chevrolet light trucks was the CST trim, or
Custom Sports Truck.
This Chevrolet CST/10 pickup has had 3 owners in its lifetime. The
first, an oil man from Texas, then his daughter, then our current
consigner. His task has kept this truck's exterior original, its
original motor, and transmission. Other improvements throughout his
ownership and now we have a CST10 that is a classic and looking
very much like the original workhorse and recreational access
vehicle it was intended to be.
Luxurious Yellow Green on White �-ton utility paint which is
original is looking nicely preserved. With straight steel covered
in this Yellow Green we can see a few slight areas of paint
rub-off, some scratches, and marks throughout on the paint, but it
retains its shine and overall is very good. The original brightwork
features the custom wood-grain insert along the cab, fleetside, and
tailgate which set the CST apart from its lower-trimmed 10-series
Glamour Pickup cousins. Speaking of the bed, it is now lined with a
rubber tough protective mat, and the top has a hard white tonneau
covering to keep all dry that is inside this 8 foot bed. A white
painted cabin top matches the tonneau, and newer chromed bumpers
have been polished and put back on. Dual exhaust tips peek out from
either side just behind the rear wheel wells, a trailer hitch is on
back, and snazzy GM style rally wheels are wrapped with BFG T/A
275/60R15's in front, and 31x10x15LT's on back.
The Custom Sport Truck theme continues from the outside in. The
well-appointed interior was refinished in comforting Yellow Green
for the dash front and upper and lower door panels. Padded sun
visors and dash top to the wide door-to-door comfort of the saddle
colored broadcloth fabric insert and vinyl-upholstered bench seat,
are seen inside. Some areas of rub through can be noted on this
original bench. A Sheridan pattern frame surrounds tuck and roll
door panels also in saddle, and is made up of embossed vinyl, no
stitching. A heater and defroster are for in-cabin command of
climate control. Putting sports into the pickup truck formula is a
factory tachometer to keep track of the engine revs. A
factory-issue AM/FM radio is ready for in-truck entertainment. Gold
carpeting and a tight vinyl headliner framed in aluminum trim have
also been refreshed and looking good.
The original 307ci V-8 engine is backed by a heavy-duty Saginaw
3-speed automatic transmission. The truck features optional power
steering and power brakes. A 2-barrel carburetor feeds this nicely
maintained mill and power moves rearward to a 12-bolt 3.73
conventional rear axle. The engine is nicely painted in the GM
orange/red and sits within an unrestored engine bay with a nice
Very slight light coating of surface rust can be seen on all the
patina black panels and steel solid structure underneath. Floorpans
and rockers remain solid. For the suspension we can note
independent coil springs for the front, and 3 link with coil
springs for the rear. Braking is drum brakes on all 4 corners.
Cherrybomb exhaust add a nice melodious tone to this CST.
Speaking of melodious tone, she fires right up and my test drive
proved this truck to be very nice with good acceleration, solid
bias free braking, and solid suspension. Finish is very nice, and
all is working inside the cabin.
A truly fine original example with some last consigner add ons that
only improve the value of this classic 1969, and have it presenting
well. Mechanically sound and ready to take on the working world, or
just be a great classic to have at your cabin, or your driveway to
turn some heads of passers by.
