The C10 was a legendary leap ahead in style and comfort, and this
1966 Chevrolet C10 Custom is the last of this original generation.
So it's great to see it restored to show off the best in vintage
style while also having the right upgrades for modern cruising
comfort - including ice-cold A/C.
The paint package makes you fall in love with this truck. The
two-tone red with white accents is an all-America kind of style
that's as timeless as a Coca-Cola bottle. This is a product of
professional application that really attracts a crowd with its
high-gloss finish. And they invested in far more than just quality
paint. The body panels are super straight, the glass is clean, the
rubber is pliable, and there's an overall look of quality. And all
the brightwork is also complete and shining brightly - including
the chrome bumpers, grille, classic hubcaps, and the full-length
side trim. In fact, it has so much brightwork that this Chevy has
as much appeal as a '66 Impala - and that sedan doesn't come with a
gorgeous real wood truck bed!
The red and white theme continues inside. Everything from the clean
carpeting to the freshly recovered bench seat has a quality look
and feel. Even the dome light is working. This classic wants to be
driven, and so you have the right well-placed upgrades that make
the cruising more comfortable, including a retro-style AM/FM
stereo, and cold-blowing air conditioning. Plus, the wood and
billet steering wheel has the kind of grip that feels
This engine bay is dressed to impress with smooth inner walls, tidy
wires, and plenty of shine from the finned valve covers, air
cleaner, and much more. But what we like best is how this one loves
to be vintage while also still being a proper cruiser. The C10s
were just entering the small block era for a first-gen C10 like
this so a 283 cubic-inch V8 is the right size for a truck like
this. But they made sure it now has the right amount of pep with an
Edelbrock four-barrel carburetor and an aluminum intake. The
Powerglide automatic transmission is another one of those
cool/classic pieces. Plus, the undercarriage really shows off
fresher investments to make this a great cruiser. The newer
suspension components give this a confident feeling on the road,
and don't forget to notice the C10's desirable trailing arm rear.
And there's also power steering, power brakes, front discs, and a
strong 12-bolt rear end.
The sale comes complete with the original warranty card and the
owner's manual. This is the cool two-tone truck with the power and
comfort upgrades you want to make it a road-ready cruiser. So when
your dream pickup is already ready, all you have to do is call
