Vehicle Description

1968 Chevrolet C10 Pickup

Classic pickups have always had a following but in recent years the trucks of the 60's, 70's, and 80's have really grown in popularity. Fords have their fans but the Chevy C10s have really been the focus. The C10 was introduced in 1960 and included both the "Action Line" series and the "Rounded Line (Square Body)" series. This cool '68 belongs to the 2nd generation and the "C" in C10 denotes it as a 2 wheel drive model. A lot of the mechanical components for this gen was carried over from the previous but the bodies were largely redesigned to improve their capability of being multi purpose vehicles. This truck has 94,000 total miles with approximately 15,000 miles put on it since being modified. The truck had been stored in a lakefront car port for 25 years by the previous owner after they purchased it from an estate sale. While in storage the original paint slowly weathered and developed a patina which honestly...looks great! It has intentionally been kept this way for a very cool "shop truck" look. Don't let that fool you though because it has been totally gone through and received a ton of upgrades making it an excellent driver. During the build the truck was completely disassembled and received all new body bushings, door rubbers and seals. Old school sign lettering has been added to both doors and it has custom pinstriping done by Frank Palmer. The glass is all in great shape and is actually all original. The new front and rear bumpers have nice shine as does the trim piece at the top of the tailgate. The rear lights have been converted to LED and all exterior lighting works properly. Inside of the bed the truck was redone with a new Mar-K oak bed floor with new stainless strips which look great. It sits on a set of 5 spoke polished 20 inch American Racing Torq Thrusts with Nitto tires.

Turning those tires is a Chevrolet Performance ZZ4 350ci small block V8 which replaced the original 307. It has been nicely dressed up with chrome Edelbrock Chevy bowtie valve covers, a chrome alternator, and Edelbrock air cleaner. It was also upgraded with an Edelbrock ProFlow 4 fuel injection system and aluminum heads. Backing it up is a 700R4 automatic transmission and a 12 bolt posi-traction rear end with 3:73 gears. Keeping with the theme of modern mechanics hidden in a weathered exterior the truck now has 4 wheel power CPP disc brakes and 500 series power steering. It really drives out well and sounds good through the completely new and custom fabricated stainless steel exhaust. The suspension was all gone through with new lowering springs, gas shocks and custom sway bars in both front and rear with the front also having drop spindles to achieve the perfect stance. During the build it got a brand new fuel tank with sending unit and a really cool feature which is a trailer hitch that has been hidden behind the fold down rear license plate.

While tore down the floor of the cab was sprayed with Lizard Skin sound deadener and Lizard Skin ceramic coating. Boom Mat and a jute pad were then put in prior to the custom molded carpets. Boom Mat can also be found insulating the doors. Keith Kirk interiors recovered the seat with overstuffed bolsters and also added custom inset cup holders which is a clever idea. It has a matching dash pad and two matching sun visors. Keeping you safe and strapped in are the more modern retractable seat belts with shoulder harnesses. On the dash is a completely new factory gauge package which includes the speedometer, tachometer, oil pressure, voltmeter, vacuum, and fuel gauges all of which are working. It also has a custom Auto Sound radio system that sounds good through the kick panel speakers and sub-woofer. The truck was ordered with factory AC but has been converted to an Old Air AC/Heat system with adjustable vents which blows much colder than stock plus utilizes modern refrigerant. In front of the driver sits a nice polished tilt steering column topped off with a very nice Banjo woodgrain steering wheel. Other very nice upgrades include the new matching door locks and Altman Bear-Claw latches which are safer and really help how smoothly but solidly the doors close.

This truck is a really neat build and all the recent work on it has been done professionally. It is ready to go as is and is sure to draw a crowd at your next car meet up!

This well built pickup could be yours for $51,750.00!
