This 1966 Chevrolet C10 combines a cool color combo, a touch of the
right upgrades, and some very vintage details to make this feel
like a proper classic with true V8 cruiser appeal.
Bright red paint with touches of white artfully interwoven means
this truck reminds us of a Coca-Cola bottle. So it makes a nice
all-American first impression. Bright chrome bumpers, a wide
grille, full-length trim, and good-looking sheet metal really
amplify the classic attitude. Plus, the VIN tells us this was
originally a long bed pickup, but we like the shortened bed that's
here now because it's packed with details like color-matched liner

The smooth red inner walls and firewall channel your attention to
the bold orange motor in the middle. This is a period-correct 283
cubic-inch V8 that has a clean and stock presentation. So it fits
with this truck's fun but honest style. And if you dig a little
deeper, you'll see worthwhile upgrades like an Edelbrock intake and
an aluminum radiator. It makes for a hardy heart and proper V8
power. If this is starting to sound like an ideal cruising classic,
then you'll also appreciate easy driving features like a Powerglide
automatic transmission, power steering, power brakes, and the
comfortable trailing arm rear suspension.
This truck appreciates its history while making the right
investments to be a solid cruiser for today. That's why it's
irresistible. Call today!!!
