This 1965 Chevrolet C10 is a pretty awesome custom lowrider. But
what the stance and style instantly have you hooked, don't forget
to check out the well-done package with proper V8 power and a
custom A/C interior. It all makes for a true head-turning
This year C10 is a cool classic for the way it can give you plenty
of chrome and even cool details, like the hint of overhang on the
rear of the cab. But this one has far more than just pure vintage
appeal. It was purchased as a patina'd shop truck, and it went
through a transformation about a year ago. The paint package here
is particularly impressive. The color is called Candy Chestnut, and
it seems to hit the middle between a deep maroon and a root beer
brown depending on the light. Best of all, this smooth and fresh
finish has a hint of metallic that loves to radiate no matter what
shade you call it. And as people get closer they're going to see
something even more impressive with the paint. The full-length side
trim now uses its inserts to show off a metallic Aztec style custom
graphics theme. There's even more on the cab's pillar. And if those
few felt like you found hidden treasures, then the roof will be
like discovering a hidden temple! Fender skirts, whitewall tires,
and rocket-style reverse all add to the custom style. There's also
potential for even more fun with the components for a train horn
and flame-thrower exhaust (the main pieces are in place, but they
are not currently hooked up.) And that true lowrider stance is
something you get to dial in thanks to the full hydraulic
The interior continues the custom look with the exterior's paint
returning to give the metal parts a sleek presentation. And the tan
seat with a diamond-stitch pattern is a cool premium touch. You'll
also appreciate the fundamentals, like the newer carpeting and the
way the doors close with ease and authority. Plus, cold-blowing air
conditioning is always a terrific upgrade. The steering wheel has
an artful look with its color-matched presentation, and it gives
you a clear view to the full gauge package w/tach.
The engine bay has a very honest look. It looks right for a
correct-style small block V8. There are plenty of affordable
upgrades that would add polish to this presentation, but we kind of
like how it already is, because it's a reminder of this one's shop
truck history. So you can wow them with the custom interior and
exterior, and then really tell the full story with the engine bay.
Plus, it was given the right upgrades to remain a proper cruiser,
including an electronic ignition and full dual electric fan setup.
There's also power steering, power brakes, and a three-speed
automatic transmission to make sure it's easy to hit the boulevard
low and slow so everyone sees you.
This is the custom build that will be memorable everywhere it goes.
So, if you like a lowrider, you'll love this custom Chevy pickup.
