Chevrolet Other Pickups 1964 Description

There's still something appealing about old pickup trucks that aren't too fancy. Trucks like this 1964 Chevrolet C10 stepside were working on farms before they were collectors' items and they retain that image of a home-grown American work ethic, and if you can enjoy this one on sunny days and still put it to use, well, that's even better.This handsome pickup has been pretty comprehensively overhauled, including unusual and attractive Pearl White paint over that distinctive Chevy bodywork. The creases and folds make it instantly recognizable and by starting with a pretty clean truck they were able to get some great results. A few bits needed patched and smoothed, but when that was done and the paint was dry, they ended up with a very good looking truck. Even though it's a modern color, the paint was a good choice for a truck that's neither destined for the show field nor ready for retirement, mostly because it hides dirt effectively and always looks great. Stepside beds, particularly on trucks of this vintage, give it a sporty look with those flared rear fenders, and we especially like the side-mounted spare tire, which adds a utilitarian charm that totally works. The bed was fitted with fresh wood planks and stainless rub strips, although you could lay down a few coats of urethane to really make it shine.A late-model truck of some sort gave up its guts for the interior of this C10, and the gray bucket seats are a big step up over the original bench. New carpets on the floor, a fat three-spoke steering wheel, and more pearl white paint all help dress things up inside. You'll also note an under-dash A/C unit, which tucks in tight and stays out of sight, looking more like an OEM piece than the period under-dash units that would have been used in 1964. The factory instrument panel has been upgraded with a custom insert full of white-faced gauges to monitor all the engine's vitals, and it looks great. A B&M floor shifter manages the TH350 3-speed automatic transmission and there's a Kenwood AM/FM/CD stereo radio in the dash for entertainment. Clean, simple and unpretentious, this Chevy has a lot to offer.When you open the big clamshell hood, you might expect to see an inline-6, but this one now packs a 1970s vintage 350 cubic inch V8. Rebuilt at some point and fitted with the usual upgrades like an Edelbrock carburetor and long-tube headers, it's smooth and torquey just the way you want your truck to be. The fit is very much like the factory would have done it, although upgrades like power steering, an alternator, and power front disc brakes make it feel a lot more modern than you'd think. The TH350 3-speed automatic shifts easily and it happily cruises at modern highway speeds without a lot of effort. Underneath you'll see that it remains original, but it's not deteriorated and hasn't been undercoated, so you can see just how honest this truck really is, and the Flowmaster dual exhaust system sounds great. Flashy American Racing aluminum wheels give it a sporty look and wear fat 255/70/15 Cooper radials at all four corners.An clean old pickup that's been thoughtfully freshened and is now ready to enjoy, this Chevy still has a lot of life left and just wants to stay busy.
