Extremely well cared for and beautiful, and loaded 1972 Chevrolet C10 pickup. Only original once.
This Original, Rust-Free Arizona Beauty has been in my collection for 31 years, it drives like the day it was new and it's air conditioning is as cold as ice.
I had purchased it originally for my wife for a “Cowgirl-up” truck, but by the time I finished replacing its sun-dried paint, her horse was diagnosed with COPD, so the truck has never been used to pull a trailer.
As life goes on, I have now decided to thin down MY herd and let someone else enjoy this fabulous ride.
This truck has been meticulously cared for, and I have taken much care in keeping everything to originality when servicing, as when it was built at the factory. Because of its Low mileage, I had decided to just freshen the truck up a bit.
Approx. 9 years ago, because of its fading colors by the Arizona Sun, the body was stripped, epoxy coated, primed, and painted maintaining its original colors, and replaced it's orig.factory trim with n.o.s.trim from the G.M. warehouse .
I removed the engine for detailing, and the lower half was inspected and all dimensions meticulously measured, and found to be in excellent condition The Original carburetor was rebuilt, and Transmission was serviced. it's been approximately 3,500 miles since completed.
One exception……. My wife said, “if you’re doing this for me, I want a good sound system, and some engine chrome”, .... soooo, I gave her chrome valve covers, air cleaner, and a dipstick, along with an am/fm stereo and an LMC headliner with speakers! I have all of the original equipment safely wrapped and shelved, including the radio, to go with the sale.
The truck is loaded with many options, and is truly a dream to drive. Being a true Big Block 402 cu. in., Mark VI, engine since new, I had a custom dual exhaust system, which gives it an excellent tone!
One particular option that was offered, is the optional spare fuel tank in which, was installed beneath the box, and as you can see, has the extra fuel inlet with the Locked cap. Both tanks can be used together or, the in cab tank can be removed if chosen, and the optional tank installed as the primary fuel source for more safety. It is a custom tank built by G.M. which I had chose to leave off when the I put the vehicle back together after painting. It is in excellent condition and also goes with the vehicle.
Photos will show original factory undercoating under floors, tight to the metal, and not added. No salt EVER, just a flamboyant life under the dry Arizona sun...!
