For Sale: 1971 Chevrolet C10 in O'Fallon, Illinois

Vehicle Description

Gateway Classic Cars Houston showroom is pleased to present this awesome orange and white 1971 Chevrolet Super Cheyenne C10 pickup. Chevrolet produced these "Action Line" trucks beginning with the 1967 model year and concluding in 1972. The Action Line is the first generation to use the "C/K" designation to differentiate the 2WD drive trucks from the 4WD versions; with the "C" designating rear wheel drive, and "K" designating 4x4 drivetrains (until the 1987-91 model years, which used "R" and "V" for 2/4-wheel drive configurations respectively). The Action Line trucks are among the most popular and desirable trucks today, and this is one of the nicest we've had. Looking at this truck from a distance, some might mistake it as being virtually unused; but up close, it's evident that it has been used, but only "ever so slightly"! It's really in great condition: from the body to the paint, to the interior, to the drivetrain, this is really a gorgeous truck. Whomever did the painting took great pride in their workmanship, and it shows - the body and paint need to be seen up close to appreciate how nice this truck looks. The exterior trim is in similar shape, looking nearly like new, complete down to the detail of the woodgrain applique strips. The weatherstripping and seals are also in very good shape, so from a restoration perspective, this baby is "complete" - just buy it, drive off, and enjoy the fact that your classic Super Cheyenne is in your garage, and not the restoration shop! Powering this clean '71 is the ubiquitous 350 CID (small block) V8, backed by a GM TH350 3-speed automatic transmission, which delivers the output to the 12-bolt rear end. The mighty "mouse motor" is topped by an Edelbrock 4BBL carb on its aluminum intake. A set of Hooker headers scavenge the exhaust into the true dual exhaust system, providing a nice muscular sound, as well as freer breathing than the original cast iron exhaust manifolds/single exhaust configuration ever could have. It's riding on a set of original style wheels with bright chrome beauty rings and BF Goodrich Radial T/A tires. The interior of this Super Cheyenne is as nice as the exterior, with nearly everything almost indistinguishable from new. The carpet looks fresh, the switchgear and levers look great, and the bench seat looks awesome; with its black and white houndstooth fabric providing improved comfort vs. an all-synthetic leather seat. The black vinyl trim on the bench gives improved wear resistance in the most friction-prone parts of the seat, while the cloth keeps passengers from getting "sticky shirts". Passenger safety isn't overlooked either, with power front disc brakes (introduced on Chevy pickups in 1971) and seat belts for both outboard passengers. Additional features and options on this 1971 Chevrolet Super Cheyenne C10 include cold air conditioning, retro-styled AM/FM/Cassette head unit (not hooked up), Cloth/Vinyl seating, Power Brakes, Power Steering, Radial Tires, Rallye Wheels, Seat Belts, Spare Tire, and Tilt Steering Column.
