For Sale: 1968 Chevrolet C10 in Charlotte, North Carolina

Vehicle Description

As your eyes focus on the alluring details of this choice 1968 Chevrolet C10, your mind might drift to the plane of high-maintenance trophy queens that pose better than they roll... HEY! SNAP OUT OF IT! Fancy this Chevy? Then you'd better be ready for a cool vintage hot rod that's primed for road time. 5.3 liters of proven Vortec V8 joins a smooth 4L60E 4-speed to provide all the reliable motivation you'll ever need. A lowered suspension, which remains largely stock, rolls for miles with ease. And the truck's quality, frame-up restoration attracts plenty of praise without instilling an unnatural fear of dust or rain. Simply put: if you want a cool, head turning classic that you can actually drive and enjoy, here's a chance to turn your dream into reality!

TWO-TONE TEN

Fully sorted and ready to rock, this traditionally handsome C10 is the beneficiary of acute, frame-up restoration that turned a solid workhouse into a boulevard superstar! That thoughtful reboot was decorated in custom two-stage that floats clean white rockers under a glossy metallic gray profile. And, depending on the light, that worldly pigment seamlessly transitions from warm jade to subtle gold, to pure charcoal beneath a roster of timeless details. At the front of the truck, a stainless-trimmed grille centers a bright Chevy bowtie between H4 headlights, amber parking lamps and a polished bumper. Above that grille, a sculpted hood fronts matte wipers, which clear a tinted greenhouse that's reflected in factory mirrors. Whittled panels trace traditional door handles, familiar "CST" badging and vivid Chevrolet 10 emblems with bold side strips and ornate markers. Stainless-trimmed wood frames a billet fuel filler. And at the back of the truck, a "CHEVROLET" branded tailgate rotates between halogen taillights and a second polished bumper.

VORTEC POWER

When it comes to the perfect blend of power, reliability and fixability, nothing beats a stalwart Chevy small block. With that in mind, it seems perfectly logical that this C10 sports 5.3 liters of proven Vortec motivation. At the top of that mill, a familiar K&N filter cone feeds cool air into a polished tube that's cinched to a standard GM throttle body. At the sides of the block, Chevy Orange coil packs fire quality Taylor Spiro Pro plug wires, which split coated Hedman Husler Hedders. Lucid serpentine components spin modern GM power steering beneath a modern alternator and a coated AC compressor. Dual SPAL puller fans cool a beefy DeWitts radiator. Chevy Orange valve covers add a bit of retro flair. And aesthetically, the compact mill seems right at home in this Action Line's clean, body-matched engine bay.

STANCE DONE RIGHT

Bottom-side, a smooth 4L60E 4-speed spins a tough 12-bolt axle that's built with a posi-traction differential and 3.73 gears. The truck's factory chassis rides a carefully lowered suspension that's been thoughtfully upgraded with thick sway bars. That slammed skeleton gets steered through modern power steering. Quick stops are a cinch thanks to a familiar combination of power-assisted discs and drums. The aforementioned headers push exhaust through aluminized pipes that are formed around throaty Flowmaster mufflers. A steady stream of fossils is supplied by an aftermarket tank. And at the corners, polished American Racing Salt Flats turn 245/45R20 Achilles Desert Hawks in front of 275/40R20 Achilles Desert Hawks.

PLAID FTW!

When you pop this Chevy's doors, you'll find a tastefully customized cockpit that, while decidedly stylish, honors the truck's admirable legacy of being a rugged, no-nonsense workhorse. Top dead center, a painted and capped dash frames crisp telemetry next to modern Pioneer audio and cool Vintage Air conditioning. Fade-free carpet frames stainless-trimmed pedals in front of a super cool, plaid-laced bench. Vinyl and plaid side panels hang traditional chrome handles over Pioneer kick speakers. And in front of the driver, a tilting column spins a satin Chevrolet Rally Wheel around a factory-style shifter.

A timeless head turner that can actually be driven and enjoyed, this sweet C10 is ready to make every weekend a special event! Call, click or visit http://www.RKMotors.com for more information!
