Vehicle Description

This drop-dead gorgeous 1972 Chevrolet C10 Cheyenne Restomod is exactly the kind of truck you would build for yourself if you wanted to drive it all the time and bask in non-stop attention. With several smart modifications, a killer stance, and a sleek black paint job that lets the original styling speak for itself, it's a no-excuses vintage truck in every way. A 350 V8 Twin Turbo set-up under the hood catapults this Cheyenne into restomod territory, and with the addition of a 700R4 automatic overdrive transmission, a sporty performance suspension, and a high-end, body-off restoration that was finished just 4334 miles ago, it's one of the most amazing Chevy trucks we've ever featured.

Beautifully finished in attractive, attention-grabbing black livery, this pickup looks like it's dressed up in a black tuxedo for a night out on the town, not a set of coveralls for work. The classic shape of the 'Action Line' C10 is undeniably attractive, but when it's wrapped in a glossy modern black paint, it's downright arresting. The contrast between the slick black finish and the Cheyenne woodgrain and chrome trim was a perfect choice for the squared-off look of the 2nd generation C10 pickups (also dubbed the Glamour Line, and for very good reason), and even though it's not a perfect trailer queen finish, it's a fine, top-end driver-quality rig nonetheless. Ideal for the local cruise night, it's still going to turn heads everywhere it goes, and we can just about guarantee it will be the nicest C10 at the car show. The factory Cheyenne trim was replaced/restored with all the correct stuff, including the shiny upper body molding, the elegant lower woodgrain trim, and the gorgeous tailgate panel out back, and with the correct Cheyenne fender badges in place, everyone knows exactly what time it is when this baby rolls in. A factory eggcrate style grill gets the party started up front, and it's surrounded by brightly polished chrome that matches the shiny bumpers at the bookends, and even the door handles, mirrors, wipers, and brightwork around the glass was brought to a top shine. The interior of the bed was finished to a very high standard as well, and even though it's nice enough to host a dance party, tough materials like the black spray-in bedliner on the bed sides, sturdy oak wood on the floors, and stainless-steel slats/hardware that holds it all together are all strong enough to allow this pickup to still be used, well, like a pickup.

The upscale theme continues inside the cab where there's a lovely and highly useful combination of both modern and original components. Comfortable bucket seats wrapped in pleated black cloth and vinyl upholstery anchor the interior, split by a small jump seat/arm rest in the middle that allow for a little more room for everyone. Plush black carpets line the floors and are protected by thick, vinyl floormats, and upscale door panels at the flanks add a touch of sophistication inside. The black, chrome, and, woodgrain dash continues the exterior theme - with a black dash pad up top, black paint on the original steel, woodgrain applique on the glovebox and ashtray doors, and a newer bezel ahead of the driver that houses a full set of factory-spec gauges that keep a close eye on the upgraded engine under the hood. A thick-rimmed Grant steering wheel is perfect for white-knuckle battles out on the back roads, and it's mounted atop a tilt column that provides more room for the driver at the helm of the cockpit. Other options include A/C with modern hardware (although it's not currently operable), seatbelts, and a retro-style AM/FM/AUX stereo that handles the tunes. Everything still looks fresh inside, and with all those creature comforts the cab is definitely a comfortable place in which to spend some time.

Under the hood is where the real party begins, starting with the 350 V8 Goodwrench crate engine that fits neatly in the Chevy's slick-black engine bay. Topped with a Gale Banks Engineering Twin Turbo blow-through kit and augmented with an Edelbrock hydraulic roller cam, a big Holley 4-barrel carburetor, HEI ignition, and custom air-intake system, it's an incredibly strong runner that takes the relatively lightweight C10 to almost unimaginable speeds. Professionally installed and looking like it always belonged, the engine bay is highlighted by the shiny intake cover, chrome valve covers, and those polished turbos and Edelbrock cone filters at the flanks. A one-wire, modern alternator helps the motor crank with ease with the help of an Optima gel-cell battery, while the big aluminum radiator up front means you never have to worry about this small block overheating. Quick-ratio power steering and power front disc brakes are included, and with a 700R4 4-speed automatic transmission with overdrive spinning a sturdy 12-bolt rear end filled with 3.42 gears inside, this C10 can easily handle the rigors of the modern road and highway speeds. A custom dual exhaust system with Flowmaster mufflers gives the V8 a throaty voice, and the beefed-up, lowered Belltech Street Performance suspension features a double-wishbone front end, and upgraded shocks, coils, and a heavy-duty Panhard rod out back. Flashy Hot Rod by Boyd Coddington chrome wheels look slick and totally stuff the wheelwells (8x20 up front; 22x10 in the rear) and come wrapped with fat 255/40/20 front and 285/35/22 rear radials with plenty of grip.

A drop-dead gorgeous California truck that's been comprehensively restored to the 9's. All the time and money has already been spent, now all that remains is some quality cruising time with a brand new owner. Call today!
