For Sale: 1971 Chevrolet C10 in Ft Worth, Texas

Vehicle Description

This 1971 Chevrolet C10 is a custom pickup with upgraded V8 power, an overdrive transmission, extra-sharp paint, ghost racing stripes, and a custom/comfy air-conditioned interior. So we're not sure how much more of your ultimate wish list we need to check off before you realize this custom pickup has it all.


Tangelo Pearl is a bold shade that has a nice added metallic element to make sure that everyone notices the moment sunlight hits this truck. And as you get closer, you'll even notice racing stripes are ghosted in a slightly darker shade of orange. It's a nice way to signal that this is both for lovers of performance and details. The restoration was completed about 9k miles ago, and so this one has seen only modest use. So it's the kind of clean custom that you can drive and show with pride. There's a thoughtfulness that is seen throughout the exterior. The LED headlight upgrade not only lights the way better, but its dark style goes well with the blackout grille. In fact, there's a nicely coordinated dark side that also includes the tinted glass and liner paint in the bed. And the classic chrome bumpers have a mirror-like shine so that they can complement the 20-inch polished Foose wheels.


The exterior orange returns inside as an accent color, and it's now joined by black. It looks especially nice on the custom door panels, carpeting, and dash pad. There's even a custom bow tie graphic in the rear black panel for more of the thoughtful style that this truck has at its heart. This one is a driver's classic, and they signal that with the upgraded seats. They are borrowed from a C5 Corvette Z06 to deliver high back and supple leather comfort. In fact, yours power adjusts, so you'll always find the ideal driving position. You also have a woodgrain Grant GT steering wheel, a tilt column, a B&M shifter, and a full Dolphin gauge package. It gives you a great sports truck feeling while also being extra comfy. It comes from nice upgrades like cold-blowing air conditioning, a custom armrest center console, cup holders, and a Kenwood AM/FM stereo with aux input and Bluetooth connectivity.


The thoughtfulness of the build continues in the engine bay. The block, valve covers, and air grabber are all painted to match the exterior. This is a 383 Stroker V8 that's upgraded further with performance pieces like Edelbrock four-barrel carburetor, a Weiand aluminum intake, and headers add power while contributing to the sweet rumble of the Flowmaster dual exhaust. This is even supported by the right pieces, like an MSD ignition, an Optima battery, and a Champion aluminum radiator with dual cooling fans. And because it's so thoughtfully built, it's great for all-around driving. That's why you have an upgrade to a 700R4 four-speed automatic transmission with a Corvette torque converter. The undercarriage photos reveal suspension upgrades like the tubular lower control arms, front drop spindles, and thick sway bars for both the front and rear. Add in power steering, power brakes, front discs, and the grip of modern performance tires, and you have an all-around solid driver's classic.


This thoughtful build makes for a cool, coordinated, and very custom pickup. So if you love a vintage truck that has it all, call today!
