The long, strong line for '65 �€" Chevrolet C10 magazine ad headline Hagerty described the Sixties Chevy pickups: Aircraft-inspired 'nacelles' graced the hood of the attractively restyled 1960 Chevrolet C10, which now relied on independent front suspension (the pickup market's first) sprung by torsion bars instead of coils. Coil springs brought up the rear in place of the leafs installed prior to 1960. Conventional coils replaced the torsion bars up front in 1963, allowing the frame's reinforcing x-member, in place since 1960, to be deleted. The 1960 model year was the first in which Chevy pickups featured a full-width pickup box as standard equipment. Styling is a hit or miss affair for the earlier years (1960-62), with wrap-around windshields and their unique hoods that are all but impossible to find as replacements. GM discontinued this difficult-to-stamp component for the 1963 model year, even for collision replacement parts, so it's not unusual to find earlier trucks with the later 1963-66 hoods. Those later years saw styling that was more mainstream looking, and those are generally most sought-out by collectors. Externally, only the trim shuffle games prevalent in Detroit at the time differentiate 1964 through 1966s. Offered here is a fully restored, respectfully upgraded, and substantially up-engined 1965 C10 Chevrolet Pickup in orange and ivory over the same color combination interior. Showing just 58 miles on its odometer since its rotisserie restoration work was completed, the truck is virtually flawless in every respect. The superb quality of the truck's paintwork is the result of a comprehensive, frame-off, glass-out respray. Originally a southern truck, the rotisserie restoration began with a rust-free body and chassis. (The accompanying gallery includes photo documentation of the work.) The orange and ivory two-tone combination was applied to the body in keeping with the factory spec, down to and including the C-h-e-v-r-o-l-e-t embossed tailgate lettering in ivory. Every painted body panel exhibits perfect gloss, and there are no dings or dents anywhere on the truck. (To best assess the quality of the paint and trim finishes, be sure to view the close-up photographs of the car in the accompanying gallery.) Cabin glass and lighting lenses are pristine. Chrome brightwork-on the grille, both bumpers, stylized body-side trim, cab trim, mirrors and door handles, and lighting trim-is outstanding. Chain tailgate supports even include the plastic sleeves protecting the body from scratches. Factory badging, including the Chevrolet front-grille and tailgate lettering, C10 hood-side emblems, and script Custom cab lettering is all as-new and perfectly sharp. The cargo bed wood and metal rub strips are likewise brand new and perfectly installed. Chrome, 18-inch XD® wheels are mounted with Kelly® Edge 245/60 all-season tires. Inside, the exterior color combination continues on metal surfaces, and the quality of the finish is equally outstanding. Upgraded TMI® bucket seats upholstered in black leather in a horizontally pleated pattern are separated by a matching storage-armrest unit with cupholders. Black carpeting covers the floors. Simple door trim is ivory-painted metal. A chrome, 3-spoke sport steering wheel with bla
