1970 Chevrolet C10 Pickup
Introduced for the first time in the 1960s, the C/K series of Chevy
trucks made by General Motors is one of the most popular pickups
ever made, certainly in terms of GM. The model line put a target
right on the back of the Ford F-Series trucks, and this has kept a
healthy feud going for decades now. When the second generation of
the C/K series truck rolled around, the Chevy truck earned the
title of being the 'action line' generation at GM. It carried over
some elements from the first generation, but also came with
improvements to up the capability and versatility as a
multi-purpose truck, since the days of trucks being dedicated farm
vehicles only were fading.
For consignment, a slightly modified "it year" 1970 Chevrolet C10
pickup which is blazing orange and visually it is just crushing it!
Now with a Chevrolet 350ci V8, Turbo 350 Trans, 20 inch Ridler
wheels and all straight rust free steel, ready to roll on out of
the showroom and into your driveway where it will be the talk of
the town. Read on!
This single cab short bed example has been gone over as to the fit
and finish and now has no rust, straight steel and well minded
gaps. The front end of the truck is circa1967 and this grille and
flanking single headlights are all clean and pristine and a shiny
like new bumper is below. Orange paint which is a quality respray
covers all this well shaped steel and makes up the entire exterior
of the vehicle. A black centered and chrome edged trim spear runs
the length of the truck and is perfectly aligned. Window trimmings
have been blackened. The inside side panels of the bed are
blackened as well along with the wheel well coverings. The bed is
stained with a pickled finish and is made of straight oil with
stainless dividers between each board. On the back the rear bumper
has been shaved and an orange roll pan houses the license plate.
20-inch Shamrock style Ridler polished wheels are on all 4
Utilitarian doors with orange steel door panels sport a black
plastic molded insert which has the window crank and door actuator
as well as a simple armrest leading the way inside. Here we sit
upon a long solid black vinyl covered bench which is in near
perfect condition. This bench cozies up top the dash which is
fronted by a rally steering wheel which fronts an orange painted
metal dash with a black padded dash top. For the instruments a
black textured panel is behind the wheel directly in the driver's
field of view. Here we see circular gauges and a few pulls. In the
dash center an aftermarket AM/FM/CD stereo has been neatly
installed and just below the temp sliders which show this truck is
equipped with A/C, (which the eyeball vents and the dual vent on
top of dash center give it away!). The passenger side has access to
a large glove box with an orange metal door. Below we note black
carpeting and above more orange painted metal with a tuck and roll
padded insert in black vinyl for the headliner.
Now showing off under the hood is a gleaming 350ci V8 with plenty
of chromed add ons like the water pump, valve covers, air cleaner
cover, and the master cylinder lid. The block is painted a blazing
red. Silver headers carry the spent gasses away. On top is a Holley
4-barrel carb, which feeds the go juice through an Edelbrock intake
manifold. On the back is a TH350 3-speed automatic transmission and
a 12-bolt rear axle. Dual flow master exhaust allows for a mid-bed
exit just prior to the pumpkin.
Some surface rust, some painted over in black rattle can, but
structurally sound with clean rockers and floorpans. The metal
underlining of the bed just forward of the rear wheel wells is
showing some invasive rust damage, and it's on both sides. It is
not compromising the structural integrity of the truck though.
Independent coil spring suspension is on front and a trailing arm
with coil springs is on back Power disc brakes are on front, and
power drums for the back.
She fired right up with the turn of the key, and off to the test
track I went. Here it has great acceleration, smooth shifting, good
handling and bias free braking. All functions were all good, and
the tilt wheel is a plus to get it just right baby bear.
