Vehicle Description

1972 Chevrolet C10 Pickup

To compete directly with the Ford F-series and the Dodge D-series, Chevrolet introduced their C/K series of pickups. They were produced from 1960 to 2002 and were marketed under both Chevrolet and GMC. While mostly being Pickups they also served as the base of the full size SUV line. The second generation starting in 1967 was known as the "Action Line" version due to Chevrolet wanting to have a more utilitarian vehicle for work and farm use while also incorporating optional comfort features like automatic transmissions, radios, and carpeting. They retained the same drop center ladder frame of the previous generation but were completely redesign from the ground up with an entirely new look to improve its capability as a multi use vehicle. This proved to be an extremely popular run for Chevrolet among classic car/truck enthusiasts and their desirability continues to grow even more in recent years. They looked pretty similar for the first part of the generation but in 1971 there was a mid year revision with the new egg crate grill as well as some other upgraded features. This 1972 was the last year for the second generation so received all the upgrades incorporated throughout their run. This beautiful C10 is in great condition and was frame off restored in 2013 by AJ Stewart and TD's Automotive in Texas. The result is a great looking classic pickup truck that is very solid and a great driver. Only Chevrolet products were used throughout its construction and all were either brand new or rebuilt. The stepside body rust free and straight. It was repainted in a very beautiful PPG #3989 Dark Garnet Red that is in great condition. The color was original put on late 50's Cadillacs and really suits the truck nicely. The original chrome bumpers have a great shine as does the side mirrors, trim, etc. The glass is all in good shape and the rear window is the type that slides open. One of the coolest feature we love on any vintage pickup is the wood bed and this one was all redone. It also comes with a set of custom made wood side slats with American Flag air brushing. They are not shown in place on the pictures but it does have them for both sides. The 15 inch American Racing wheels with Silver centers look good on it and have Coker redline tires.

Under the cowl induction hood sits a fresh crate 350 V8 motor. It has approximately 2,600 miles on it since the restoration was completed. It is fitted with an Edelbrock 4 barrel carburetor, blacked out valve covers, and an Edelbrock air cleaner. There aren't any heating issues and it has a new 4 core radiator. The truck sounds excellent with a new cat-back dual exhaust system. The Turbo 350 automatic transmission has been rebuilt and shifts smoothly. It sends power back to the 12 bolt rear end. The brakes on the car have all been redone with new discs up front and a new CPP master cylinder with brake booster. The suspension has also been completely rebuilt and the truck lowered 2 inches in front and 2.5 inches in rear. That along with features like power steering, power brakes and Old Air AC make it a very comfortable truck to drive. When the AC was installed it was a modern system using R134a making it easy to service and recharge as needed.

The interior of the truck was redone by Northside Upholstery in Fort Worth, TX. It features Black carpeting and Burgundy cloth upholstery on the split bench seat, door panels, and headliner. Three point seat belts were added for driver and passenger for additional safety. The dash is painted to match the body and topped with a Black dash pad. It has a mostly original layout with a working AM/FM radio and all stock style working gauges. Other nice features include power windows and power door locks which are all functioning properly.

This is a very well done truck and being fully restored it is ready for a new home. Just after completion the pickup passed a National Street Rod Associate Inspection with flying colors. That insures that it was set up to be road worthy and everything is working. This is an opportunity to take advantage of someone else's hard work, labor, dollars, and time investment because you couldn't redo another one for this asking price.
