In 1960 nobody knew that Chevrolet was about to change the truck
world forever with their introduction of the C/K series. This
trucks were popular in their day and prove to be equally or
possibly more popular today as a collector vehicle. The C10 has
clubs and even shows dedicated to just them alone. They were
produced from 1960 to 2002 and were a direct competitor to the Ford
F-series. This cool '63 C10 belongs to the 1st generation of these
trucks and has a great look. It is the stepside short bed model
which is pretty desireable. The truck is painted in a nice Dark
Cherry Metallic which has a nice finish. It wears its original
chrome bumpers and grill which has a nice finish as well. The glass
is all in good condition and the manual windows roll up and down
properly. The truck sits on vintage aftermarket American Racing
wheels with Cooper Cobra Radial T/A tires.

The original motor has been swapped out for a 350 V8 that runs
great. It is fitted with a Thumper Cam, Edelbrock manifold, and
Holley carburetor. The truck also sounds great with headers into
dual Flowmaster exhaust. It is kept running nice and cool thanks to
the aluminum radiator and mechanical fan in a large shroud. Backing
up the motor is a 700R4 automatic with shift kit to send power back
to the 12 bolt rear end. The front brakes have been converted to
disc and they are power assisted. It also has power steering making
it a very comfortable truck to drive.
The interior is done in a nice Black and Burgundy two tone that
looks great. It has a bench seat with lap belts and a pleated
center section. It comes with a removable aftermarket center
console for additional storage and cupholders. Behind the seat it
has been Dynamatted and is where the 1000 watt amplifier for the
Sony stereo is located. The floor is carpeted in Black and in the
center section is the Lokar shifter. The dash is nicely painted to
match the body and has a nice combination of originality and
customization. It has aftermarket Autometer gauges mounted in a
nice Aluminum Billet bezel that has LED indicators. It has an
underdash AC system with dual central vents and single vents to
each side. In front of the driver sits a polished tilt column
topped off with a wooden steering wheel.
The bed of the truck has had the sides treated for extra protection
and was done in Black. The bottom features nice wood paneling with
stainless strips. Under the bed is an aluminum fuel tank which you
fill via the cap in the bed. This is a very nice improvement since
the gas tanks were original behind the seats and were notorious for
leaking a gas smell into the cab.
This nice pickup drives out great and these C10s continue to rise
It could be yours for $24,500.00!
