Everyone car hobbyist has their favorite manufactures throughout
the years. Maybe you like Ford in the 30's but in the 50's the
tri-five Chevys are your go to. Or maybe you are a die hard who
will only ever be loyal to 1 car manufacturer your entire life. No
matter what you like, it is pretty tough to argue that the 60s and
70s C/K series didn't take the win. These trucks have only become
more popular over the years with clubs and car shows entirely
dedicated strictly to them. In fact here in Texas every May is held
the C10 nationals known as "America's Truck Event." Thousands of
C10s flood into Texas Motor Speedway to show off their rides in
autocross events, burnout contests, and of course a truck show.
With all that popularity there must be a reason these trucks have
held their value so well over the years and there is no doubt they
are going to only go up in price from here. This very clean 1963
Chevy C10 1/2 ton fleetside pickup has a great look with a lot
going for it. The current owner purchased it as is but it is clear
that it has had a frame on restoration in the past. It has been
repainted in a nice Light Blue paint combined with White accents
down the sides and White Chevrolet lettering on the tailgate. The
truck wears all of its stock style trim throughout which is in good
shape. Up front is the original chrome bumper but in back a diamond
plate heavy duty rear bumper with bumper pull trailer hitch. It has
the dual rectangular side mirrors which are adjustable and chrome
as well. The truck really looks good and the Cragar S/S wheels suit
it well. They are wrapped with Kumho Crugen tires.
Turning those tires is the 283 V8 motor that starts up an runs
well. It has been fitted with an Edelbrock Performer EPS intake,
Edelbrock valve covers, Edelbrock air cleaner, Edelbrock E-Street
heads, chrome alternator and a Holly Sniper EFI system. The cool
thing about the Sniper set up is it incorporates the efficiency of
fuel injection with the old school carbureted look. The truck has a
great sound delivered through Hedman headers into dual exhaust with
chrome tips that exit just behind the rear wheels. The 2 speed
powerglide automatic transmission moves through the gears with ease
and no problems. The truck is a smooth driver being upgraded with
power steering and power brakes with a CPP brake booster.
The interior is done in a very clean White and Gray combination
that looks great. The two tone look works really well together and
complement each other nicely. The bench seat has been reupholstered
and it is in good shape. The Black carpeting looks like new and the
current owner uses floor mats to keep it looking fresh. The dash
has a stock layout but the gauges have been replaced. The odometer
shows 630 miles which are from when they were installed. The
steering wheel/column are painted in a nice white and on the column
is an aftermarket 8,000rpm Pro Tach.
This is a really neat truck and everything is working. The new
owner will enjoy it for many years to come while it continues to
both hold and likely appreciate in value.
