This 1969 Chevrolet C10 has a bright look and all the right custom
details. So check out the bold paint, smoother bed, comfy A/C
interior, and updated V8 power. It all makes for a cool custom that
also likes to remain a useful truck.
Some of the history that we were told about this truck includes
being in long-term possession of a body shop owner. And that seems
right for a truck that looks like it has seen good care and
cool/custom details. There's plenty of shining brightwork,
including the chrome bumpers, upgraded Pacer wheels, and bright
dual exhaust tips. The red paint has a clean and bright style that
gets this one noticed at the stoplights. The short bed with
Sportside configuration has been borrowed from a later model Chevy
C/K series. That's why you have sleek design touches, like how the
smooth curves of the rear fenders (sleeker than step side trucks)
and smooth tailgate. And speaking of the bed, there is a full bed
liner added. The overall impression is quite attractive, but it
never tries to get so fancy that you'll get nervous taking it out
on the road. After all, part of the fun of a custom truck is
getting it out there so others see it.
The red returns inside on the doors and dash, and now it's
complemented by black. And you can also tell they made recent
investments here, like the well-done bench seat, matching door
panel inserts, nice carpeting, and a smooth dash pad. Just like the
exterior, the interior prioritizes being a driver-ready classic.
You even have nice upgrades like cold-blowing R134a air
conditioning, a sliding rear window, and a retro-style AM/FM
digital tuner with Bluetooth. And the upgraded wood-rimmed steering
wheel still gives you a clear view of the crisp gauges.
The engine bay looks crisp and clean from the right investments.
The smooth black inner fenders are attractive all on their own, and
the polished components at the center make the full package
show-worthy. At the heart of it all is solid small block power.
It's a 283 cubic-inch V8 upgraded with an Edelbrock Four barrel
carburetor, an Edelbrock intake, and long tube headers feeding into
the dual exhaust and Magnaflow mufflers. The three-speed automatic
transmission, power steering, power brakes, front discs, and
trailing arm rear suspension are part of a great driving setup. And
the overall solid feeling on the road lets you know there were the
right investments here for a quality cruiser.
This C10 has been given investments to make it stylish, powerful,
and comfy. That makes for an all-around appeal that's irresistible.
