For Sale: 1965 Chevrolet C10 in Ft Worth, Texas


Vehicle Description

Vintage trucks are extremely popular right now, and if this 1965 Chevrolet C10 Stepside is any indication, there's a bright future in old haulers. From the period correct paint to the strong running Straight 6 under the hood, this cool pickup nails in spades the original look and feel of a classic Chevy hauler. These 1st generation C10 stepside pickups, introduced in 1960, offered lower rooflines and a swept-back cab that offered industry-leading space and comfort, and this particular truck pays great homage to that generation with a back-to-stock look that's still ready to work.

Finished in Brigade Blue, this truck is set-up pretty much exactly like it would've been in '65 on the showroom floor, with a look that's pure nostalgia - especially with the contrasting help from the white grille and bumpers. The Stepside offered dramatic styling with lots of swoops and curves, as well as all of the subtle white accents, and all of it remains 100% intact on this hauler. Other styling details include the wing-like lip at the back of the cab, which probably has no real function but looks really cool. Paint and bodywork are done to a driver standard, and this truck will be right at home both at local shows and the local lumber yard on a Saturday afternoon if you need some light hauling done. These were well-made rugged machines from new, so it shouldn't be surprising to find one this nice today, and very little bodywork seems to have been required to get it ready for paint. Because this is a base-model short-wheelbase truck, there isn't much trim to speak of, but the brightwork and badging that is in place is all in very good shape. White bumpers, grille, and headlight surrounds are traditional, and the rear tailgate read 'Chevrolet' in white as well, just like it's supposed to, putting a nice bookend on the truck. The bed was finished with oak wood and blue slats long ago, as it does show quite a bit of wear and tear today, although it's still durable enough to take any beating thrown at it.

Trucks were austere machines even when they were brand new, and this one doesn't vary much from the factory formula. The original bench was recovered in nice black vinyl, tying in perfectly with the handsome painted door panels, dash, and headliner. Padded dashes and door panels hadn't yet made it to the truck lines, but to add a little touch of sophistication inside white accents stripes and patterns were added to break up the blue and match the exterior color scheme. The original gauges are the stock setup with a single face and lettering that was refinished in white to match the bodywork, as was the finish on the original steering column, how cool is that? The big 2-spoke steering wheel at the helm is probably the truck's original unit, and it looks pretty cool with a little patina on the rim, and it's joined on the column by the shifter that manages the 3-speed manual gearbox below. Durable black carpets and thick rubber mats suggests that this truck is still ready and willing to work yet it remains a comfortable place to spend some time. Honest and very clean, this cab could easily be upgraded or kept as humble and comfortable as it is today.

When the truck was restored, a 230 Straight 6 was kept stock, nestled between the front fenders like it would've been the day it rolled of the factory floor. As a truck, function was chosen over style, and there's no shame in that, so it still wears a stock snorkeled air cleaner, Ford Blue engine paint, and a simple valve cover painted to match. Like every well-maintained/restored Inline 6s it runs beautifully, and all the accessories appear to have been freshened in the not-too-distant past, all the way down to the original radiator up front. It starts easily with a modest rumble from the single exhaust system, and with a 3-speed manual transmission, it's easy and fun to drive. The solid chassis is 100% stock and nicely presented, including the suspension and brakes, so it's ready to enjoy. Rolling stock consists of plain-Jane steelies painted blue and adorned with white center caps, all of which wear 235/75/15 radials with plenty of tread left.

This is a great truck that can work all day and still clean up nicely for a night out on the town. Nicely restored and ready to go, this is one good looking C10. Call today!
