1972 Chevrolet Pickup Custom/10
1972 Chevrolet Pickup Custom 10
Starting in the model year 1967 General Motors introduced a whole new design of their truck line. This new line came with the nickname “Action Line“. This new C/K line of trucks had added modern conveniences to a truck that had previously been built for work purposes. These new conveniences included coil spring rear suspension, with leaf spring suspension still available if you preferred. All of the two-wheel drive trucks came with independent front suspensions.
For consignment, a nice and straight, rust free, C-10 Pickup. This 4x4 is bathed in interesting turquoise paint and uses black accenting along with shiny chrome for its look. A 350ci V8 crate motor is now in, and for the interior, wonderfully redone. Oh and don't forget the oak lined bed looking like new, and it's covered!
Probably one of the most popular of all the GM trucks, this 2nd generation last year 1972 has the look that is very desirable. A nice shiny egg crate grille, single round headlights on either side within a square chrome bezel, and wide surround just above the bumper and all is in very good condition. This leads the way for the straight steel with well minded gaps and all bathed in turquoise paint. Badging, marker lighting, handles and mirrors have been kept in chrome and adds a nice peppering of accenting to the turquoise background. On back of the cab is a long sliding tinted glass window and this gazes out upon the vinyl covering that protects the bed behind this cab. This covering does not lift but protects a beautifully restored oak and shiny divider lined bed. Beautiful turquoise also bathes this inside, and tailgate, and there does not appear to be a mark on it. Overall an excellent presentation on an iconic must have model C-10.
Utility meets comfort, and a smattering of bling also is noted for this interior. The door panels, in black, have an embossed Sheridan tooled look these panels, along with black molded plastic for the armrests, and lower panel which now sports an in the door speaker. Moving to the bench its beautiful and a nice compliment to the exterior, utilizing gray light broadcloth which has been tucked and rolled for the inserts. The surrounding bolsters are black vinyl, and all are in excellent condition. In front of the 3 spoke steering wheel is the iconic dash for GM in this generation in the form of a trio of round gauges within a black dash front. More circular instruments in smaller format run along the bottom of the dash front. Chromed eyeball vents are seen on each corner. Mounted neatly in dash central is a JVC sound system with AM/FM/CD capabilities. This truck is equipped with factory A/C, and has a black padded dash top. Black carpeting is like new and covering the floors, and above is a black stamped painted metal headliner.
Under the hood, and within a gaggle of wiring and hoses is stuffed a 350ci GM crate engine. This has an Edelbrock intake and 4-barrel carburetor, and on back a TH350 3-speed automatic. Rear wheel power is distributed by a 12-bolt rear. Headers are now on and melt into a Flowmaster exhaust.
All clean underneath with surface rust seen only on the leaf springs. All else is nice and black and structurally sound. Even the bed liner boards underneath look great! Leaf springs all around, and power disc brakes for the front, and power drums for the back.
All was well with a quick fire up and the test track was no match for this restored C-10. All was fine with acceleration, panic stopping, and even handling was good. I noticed the tachometer was not working but all else was.
A not oft seen color but really nicely done on this iconic must have generation and year C-10. Beautifully done, and now all you have to do is turn the key and off to work or play. Life does not get any better in this bowtie world.
