For Sale: 1978 Chevrolet C10 in Concord, North Carolina

Vehicle Description

This 1978 Chevrolet C10 Silverado is highly original, right down to its two-tone style and V8 power. But as you look over the whole truck, you can also see the right custom upgrades that let this pickup be a great classic cruiser.

The Cordova Brown and Buckskin tan show all the right signs of being the original application. It has a clean and complete look while also having the kind of weathered appearance that helps tell its story. The chrome bumpers have the right hint of patina, the bed reminds you a true truck is a useful friend, and the full Silverado trim separates the intricate two-tone along the body and roof. So this has all the right personality to be a great survivor...except there's also something more. Those 20-inch US Mags wheels and lowered stance tell you that there have been the right investments to make sure this is a better cruiser than just a pure barn-find, survivor.

The tan interior reminds us that being highly original doesn't mean everything is perfect, but it does mean you get plenty of cool details that often get lost over time, like button tops of the seatbacks and textured inserts on the door panels. In fact, there are more great stock details, like the Delco AM/FM radio and working dome light. There are just the right hints of upgrades, like the tinted windows, rugged rubber floor mats, and the factory A/C has been converted to R134a (it will need a belt and possibly servicing/parts to blow cold again.) But since this is a true classic pickup, we bet your favorite feature will be the sliding rear glass. After all, the breezes flowing through the cab have a cool old-school feel.

The engine bay has plenty of newer investments, but at the heart of it all is the numbers-matching 350 cubic-inch V8 block. It has been built for added power with an Edelbrock four-barrel carburetor, an Edelbrock intake, and headers feeding into the dual exhaust. There are also black Chevrolet cast valve covers, a matching air grabber, and an aluminum radiator w/electric fans. It makes for a solid power package. And the three-speed automatic transmission, power steering, power brakes, front discs, and modern sport tires really make for a great cruiser.

The sale comes complete with the original warranty card, owner's manual, and title documentation. This combines vintage style, the right upgrades, and overall usefulness to be an irresistible total package pickup. Call now!
