1980 Chevrolet C10 Pickup
1980 Chevrolet C10 Pickup
It's no secret that Chevrolet builds some of the most celebrated trucks on the planet. From the AK era forward, every generation has found a solid following and, eventually, firm footing in the collector car world. Over the past few years, we've featured plenty of vintage, ground-pounding bowties, and this righteous stepside is just the latest in a series of sweet C/K head turners.
This consignment is the recipient of a 1999 full frame-off restoration. During which time many new parts were put on, the body was done over, and the engine replaced…with a monster. If you are a fast truck fan, love deep green, fancy dropped spindles, oversize wheels with low profile tires, and desire to own something where you can turn the key and go showing or racing, this C-10 has your name on its license plate.
Mesmerizing Deep Metallic Green coats every corner of this step side truck, and it's a very high quality job. Wonderful attention to detail in the prep work separates the men from the boys, or a quality paint job from MAACO, and this is quality with a capitol Q. Chrome front bumper and grille/headlight configuration have been retained, but all else has been shaved, including any evidence of a rear bumper or badging. The bed is lined with chromed diamond plate and I personally would be inclined to not put anything in it!
Standard, stock 1980 Chevrolet C10 Pickup interior, but very shiny and clean. All gauges functioning perfectly, and padded dash matches. Power windows, power door locks, tilt column, and a Kenwood stereo are seen with in the dash. A gray vinyl bench stretches from door panel to door panel, which are also covered with grey vinyl. Black carpeting is all over the floor, and in very nice condition.
Sitting proudly in the engine bay is a 5.7 Liter Tuned Port Fuel Injected Engine. A 700 R-4 Transmission that has 4-speed overdrive follows closely behind. Long Tuber headers suck exhaust gases from the engine, and head through dual exhaust.
The term “clean as a whistle” applies here, as with any frame-off restoration is done with quality in mind. Air bag rear suspension, twin Flowmaster mufflers, and catalytic converters snake their way through the underside. Wood appears to make up the undercarriage of the bed area. A 12-bolt rear handles the torque put out to it from the front end.
A truck which spent most of its after-restoration life in a temperature controlled environment, until it went to a collector car auction, and was picked up by the current consigner. This gentleman states he needs room due to various other projects so is regrettably parting with it. Now is your opportunity to come in, turn the key, and begin turning heads, and lighting up drag strip trees.
