Chevrolet C-10 1965 Description

Maybe it's the gorgeous burgundy paint talking to me, ut this 1965 Chevrolet C10 pickup seems to epitomize the word "clean. It's a very sharp daily driver or a fun hobby truck that doesn't mind heading to the store every now and then.Chevy's handsome mid-60s design language gives the stepside bed/regular cab pickup a purposeful look that stands out with that sculpted side cove that runs the perimeter of the cab. The dark red finish hides nothing, o the gaps had to be well done and the reassembly was careful so that all the seams lined up just right, nd it shows quite well today. Burgundy metallic is an elegant color on a working-class pickup, ut it looks fantastic here and will stand out at local shows when you pull in. A new front bumper was installed after all the paint was dry and buffed, lus a custom rear roll pan, ew gate hardware, resh weather-stripping, nd a contrasting chrome grille. There's color-matched oak in the bed, hich stands out simply because it's not all perfect and bright like every other restored truck. Instead, t looks well-finished but has a very unique look.Forget sticky old vinyl, his C10 offers comfortable cloth upholstery on a late-model set of bucket seats, ccented by correct-looking plain door panels. New black carpets on the floor help the truck step away from its humble origins and also improve sound and heat control inside the cab. The very cool printed instruments on a single sheet look trick and don't collect dust, hich is nice, nd a 1970s Chevy steering wheel is beefy enough to look right in a pickup. A newer Pioneer AM/FM/CD stereo was planted in the center of the dash (remember, his was a time when radios were still optional in trucks), nd the dark finish on the dash matches the burgundy paint outside. Other details include a set of white-faced gauges under the dash, ight next to the custom controller for the chassis lighting system, hich makes this truck impossible to ignore, specially at night. Nestled into that black engine bay is a strong-running 350 cubic inch V8. An aluminum intake topped by a Holley carburetor provide a combination that was perfected decades ago and give the small block plenty of grunt to move the pickup with ease. A chrome air cleaner and finned valve covers make it look suitably racy and there's a big aluminum radiator up front to keep it cool. New hoses, fresh tune-up, nd a complete wiring harness from Painless Wiring make it as reliable as a sunrise. Glance underneath and you'll find a Camaro front suspension, ong-tube headers and Flowmaster mufflers, 700R4 4-speed automatic overdrive transmission with a heavy-duty 12-bolt rear, lus that chassis lighting system I mentioned earlier. Corvette exhaust tips give it a finished look out back and color-matched Rally wheels wear fat white-letter radials that fill the wheel wells completely.If you like the color, ou're going to love this truck. Clean, ully sorted, nd ready to rock, hat better way to have fun this summer? Call today!
