This 1970 Chevrolet C10 stepside has been given investments in all
the right places. Bold/slick paint, a leather-lined A/C interior,
overdrive transmission, and a peppy crate V8 make for the kind of
style and substance combo that's great to have from the first
moment you get behind the wheel.
You're looking at a later update to PPG's Performance Red. It's not
just a cool name, but also the shade just represents an attitude
you want on a truck that's a bit sleeker. The modern application
has a good gloss that loves to show off everything from the crisp
lines of the hood to the curves of the desirable stepside bed.
There's plenty more custom style with the clear headlights, updated
grille, big exhaust tips, custom tailgate, and smooth roll pan with
Corvette-inspired tail lights. And those bright Eagle Alloy wheels
help draw added attention to the sporty stance. But even with all
these upgrades, you always know you have a vintage truck because of
the right details everywhere from the bright chrome bumper up front
to the glossy wood in the truck bed.
The interior shows off solid investments in a comfortable truck.
For example, the right classic pieces are in place, but the dash
pad, door weather-stripping, and gauges feel like new. And the
details are the kind of things that make a truck very inviting.
Plus, there are more obvious upgrades, like the later model leather
seat. It can sit three across when you want, or fold down the
center for a cup holder console and two individual high-back
buckets. More upgrades are integrated with care, like the
retro-style AM/FM cassette stereo and cold blowing air
conditioning. And the upgraded sports steering wheel, tilt column,
and full readouts w/tach make for a nice driver's truck.
The engine bay has a tidy presentation that loves to show off a
proper V8 powerhouse. Even the smooth black inner fenders and
firewall coordinate with custom elements like the black valve
covers and air topper. While this looks quite nice, what you'll
really love is that this classic truck has been updated with a
later 350 cubic-inch crate V8. It has been enhanced with a Holley
four-barrel carburetor, Edelbrock intake, and Hooker headers
feeding the dual exhaust. And the supporting components add to both
the style and the substance with steel braided hoses, AN fittings,
Concept One brackets, a polished Powermaster alternator, and a CPP
master cylinder. The 700R4 four-speed automatic transmission is
ready to handle the power while also delivering overdrive cruising.
This feeds a strong 12-bolt rear end. Add in power steering, power
brakes w/discs up front, and the C10's trailing arm rear
suspension, and this pickup is a powerful and solid driver.
This truck has a cool look, cool stance, cool A/C interior, and
red-hot power. It all makes for a terrific custom you know you need
to get in your garage. Call today!!!
