1970 Chevrolet C10 Pickup
1970 Chevrolet C10 Pickup
Introduced for the first time in the 1960s, the C/K series of Chevy trucks made by General Motors is one of the most popular pickups ever made, certainly in terms of GM. The model line put a target right on the back of the Ford F-Series trucks, and this has kept a healthy feud going for decades now. When the second generation of the C/K series truck rolled around, the Chevy truck earned the title of being the 'action line' generation at GM. It carried over some elements from the first generation, but also came with improvements to up the capability and versatility as a multi-purpose truck, since the days of trucks being dedicated farm vehicles only were fading.
For consignment, a slightly modified “it year” 1970 Chevrolet C10 pickup which is blazing orange and visually it is just crushing it! Now with a Chevrolet 350ci V8, Turbo 350 Trans, 20 inch Ridler wheels and all straight rust free steel, ready to roll on out of the showroom and into your driveway where it will be the talk of the town. Read on!
This single cab short bed example has been gone over as to the fit and finish and now has no rust, straight steel and well minded gaps. The front end of the truck is circa1967 and this grille and flanking single headlights are all clean and pristine and a shiny like new bumper is below. Orange paint which is a quality respray covers all this well shaped steel and makes up the entire exterior of the vehicle. A black centered and chrome edged trim spear runs the length of the truck and is perfectly aligned. Window trimmings have been blackened. The inside side panels of the bed are blackened as well along with the wheel well coverings. The bed is stained with a pickled finish and is made of straight oil with stainless dividers between each board. On the back the rear bumper has been shaved and an orange roll pan houses the license plate. 20-inch Shamrock style Ridler polished wheels are on all 4 corners.
Utilitarian doors with orange steel door panels sport a black plastic molded insert which has the window crank and door actuator as well as a simple armrest leading the way inside. Here we sit upon a long solid black vinyl covered bench which is in near perfect condition. This bench cozies up top the dash which is fronted by a rally steering wheel which fronts an orange painted metal dash with a black padded dash top. For the instruments a black textured panel is behind the wheel directly in the driver's field of view. Here we see circular gauges and a few pulls. In the dash center an aftermarket AM/FM/CD stereo has been neatly installed and just below the temp sliders which show this truck is equipped with A/C, (which the eyeball vents and the dual vent on top of dash center give it away!). The passenger side has access to a large glove box with an orange metal door. Below we note black carpeting and above more orange painted metal with a tuck and roll padded insert in black vinyl for the headliner.
Now showing off under the hood is a gleaming 350ci V8 with plenty of chromed add ons like the water pump, valve covers, air cleaner cover, and the master cylinder lid. The block is painted a blazing red. Silver headers carry the spent gasses away. On top is a Holley 4-barrel carb, which feeds the go juice through an Edelbrock intake manifold. On the back is a TH350 3-speed automatic transmission and a 12-bolt rear axle. Dual flow master exhaust allows for a mid-bed exit just prior to the pumpkin.
Some surface rust, some painted over in black rattle can, but structurally sound with clean rockers and floorpans. The metal underlining of the bed just forward of the rear wheel wells is showing some invasive rust damage, and it's on both sides. It is not compromising the structural integrity of the truck though. Independent coil spring suspension is on front and a trailing arm with coil springs is on back Power disc brakes are on front, and power drums for the back.
She fired right up with the turn of the key, and off to the test track I went. Here it has great acceleration, smooth shifting, good handling and bias free braking. All functions were all good, and the tilt wheel is a plus to get it just right baby bear.
