1970 Chevrolet C10 Pickup
1970 Chevrolet C10 Pickup
If you love old Chevy and GMC trucks it might be because you have memories from when you were a kid riding in one of those early models. Or you might just love the classic lines and the way they look. The C series is a line of GM 2-wheel drive trucks, while the K series is a line of GM 4-wheel drive trucks. Beginning in 1960, trucks of this generation were named as 10, 20, and 30 series to represent the 1/2, 3/4, and 1-ton versions of GM's light truck line. Introduced for the 1960 model year, the C/K series was marketed by Chevrolet until 2002 in the United States (GMC marketed the series from 1960 to 1987).
For consignment, originally purchased for a family construction business and in that very same family since bought we give you a true workhorse in the form of a 1970 C10 pickup truck. 5 years ago, it went up for an estate sale and our consignor purchased it and proceeded to give it the full once over. It has been garage kept since that restoration and now offered up to another business owner or just someone who wants to hack around in a classic C10 as these never really go out of style.
Light green metallic sandwiches a white mid-section on the straight steel panels of this truck. Paint is good and just some slight rust on the rocker mostly behind the rear wheel wells. The cab roof is painted white, and also on those side panels as a delineation marker, a stainless and black painted trimming runs the length of the truck. On the bottom of the white is more stainless with dual thin black stripes bordering a wood grain appliqué. Gaps are nicely minded throughout, and the grille up front is looking spiffy. The bumpers are hanging in there as well and looking in good condition with just a bot of dulling in some areas, but no rust. Just behind the cab is the bed which has newly installed pine boards with the metallic green as mounting strips in between the wood. Bed sides and tailgate are excellent with no scratches for dings. On the very back is more green and white with the trimmings running across them to match the sides. Polished bolted on wheel coverings are on all 4 corners and all wrapped with Uniroyal raised white letter Laredo tires.
A swing of the doors and we see Sheridan style embossing on a mid-door black vinyl panel which houses the actuators and cranks. On its upper edge is a strip of accenting wood appliqué and then some metallic green painted metal sills. Inside your eyes are bowled over by some turquoise accents in the form of a vinyl bench with more Sheridan style embossed inserts and a stitched faux tuck and roll center and smooth bolsters. The driver's side is showing some cracking and wear in the edges. Also, the steering wheel is turquoise and it fronts the original dash which is metallic green and has a black textured instrument panel in front of the wheel. The turquoise continues with the dash top and the headliner as well as the carpets which are somewhat soiled and show a bit of faded spotting but still fairly good condition.
Upfront under the hood is the original GM 307ci V8 in its orange red painted glory. The engine bay is clean and no rust with supple wiring and hoses. This mill is topped with a 2-barrel carburetor and has the original 3 speed manual transmission making this truck a three on the tree. Looking clean and original under here.
Some heavier surface rust is seen throughout, but the frame remains structurally sound. Body hangers are rust free as are fender undersides and rockers. No invasive rust anywhere to be seen, and noted the engine shows some oiling on the bottom end. Independent coil springs are upfront and a 3 link with coil springs are on back. Drum brakes are on all 4 corners, and a new muffler and tailpipe with a side exit is seen. New hardware is on with all the underside bed mounting.
A quick starter and it ran just great on the test track. Solid braking, and handling like a truck! All functions were working during my drive.
Imagine “your name here” on the sides of this classic as you roll up to a job site to check on your minions. A classic C10, new paint, clean engine, snazzy interior and definitely a worker bee, or is a C, yeah C10!
