For Sale: 1981 Chevrolet C10 in Mesa, Arizona

Vehicle Description

This 1981 Chevrolet C10 Scottsdale is a classic V8 pickup that's got a terrific custom style on the outside and a comfy A/C interior. But what you'll really love is the more recent investments that also give it a powerful stroker V8, overdrive transmission, and four-wheel disc brakes to make this two-tone classic a true cruiser.

Just the paint alone makes this pickup stand out from the crowd. The original two-tone Midnight Black and gray has been updated for a higher gloss and shine that surpasses what came from the factory without losing its classic feeling. Of course, it also helps that the big chrome bumpers and boxy body have the kind of super straight appearance that shows there has been a careful investment all around this truck. But what makes this one truly attractive is where it deviates from the factory recipe. The bold billet grille with the blacked-out bow-tie; the wide oval chrome exhaust tips; and those unmistakably intricate 22-inch Panther polished wheels with painted red stripes. All of it gives this vintage truck a nice touch of aggression that blurs the line between pickup and custom muscle car.

The interior keeps it quite stock and fresh. The condition of the seat, dash, and trim have the unmistakable feel of fresher than new, but they have the right factory look - right down to the pleats across the bench seat. And we love how the hint of red on the wheels was a preview of all the red inside. The knob-style Delco AM/FM radio feels cool as you tune in to your favorite stations, and the factory air conditioning is blowing cold (now with R-134a refrigerant so you can service it easily.) And while this has a great classic cruiser feel, the upgraded sports steering wheel and billet shift handle signal that there's something nice for you under the hood.

We have a receipt from 2016 showing over $27k invested in this truck, and the heart of that was about making it a great driver's truck. It starts with a polished show-ready powerhouse. This 383 cubic-inch stroker V8 not only gives you a big block displacement in a small block weight, but it also has been upgraded for even more performance. It includes ATK aluminum heads, a Quick Fuel four-barrel carburetor, high-rise intake, and Dougs long tube headers feeding into the dual exhaust. And it's supported by the right pieces, like a serpentine belt system, March aluminum brackets, and an aluminum radiator with an electric fan. The transmission has been upgraded to a 700R4 four-speed automatic by Hughes Performance. That means you have a stout construction that can handle the power while also giving you overdrive cruising whenever you want. Power steering and modern performance tires make for a better driver. And the upgrade to a Wilwood four-wheel power disc brake system gives you the added confidence you want to go with all the added power.

The sale comes complete with the owner's manual, component manuals, and build receipts. This is the stylish and powerful pickup that makes for an irresistible deal. Call today!!!
