Chevrolet C-10 1971 Description

Looking to sell my 1971 Chevy CST-10 pickup. I got this truck when I was 15 and I have owned it for 5 years. I purchased it from an older man in Alabama. It is my daily driver and it has always been reliable. Everywhere I go people always complement the truck or wanna stop and talk to me, it is definitely a head turner. I am selling it because I am ready to start a new build. Now on to the specs.

Short wheel base (short-bed)

Clean Title in hand


I replaced the 350 that was in it with a 355 Blueprint crate engine from summit racing. It runs wonderful and the cam sounds great!

The engine bay looks clean and simple, I tucked all the electrical wires, ran the plug wires so they could not be seen, and hid the majority of the vacuum lines

aroud 50k miles on the motor

I have always ran 93 octane, motor spec sheet requires atleast 91

385 horsepower/400 lb. torque

4 bolt main

1 piece rear seal

9.5:1 compression

Keith Black pistons

Hastings Moly rings

Double roller timing set

Hydraulic lifter cam: Flat tappet, .480 Intake .486 Exhaust

Built 202 valve Vortec heads

all pulleys are billet aluminum

custom made alternator brackets that cant be bought

holley 650 carb with electric choke bought new when motor was bought

msd distrubitor

8mm plug wires

4 puck steel fan blade

starter is a month old

alternater is a week old

Hooker Headers

3 row full aluminum radiator

Optima Red Top Battery

very slight leak from oil filter the past few times I changes it but I do not ever see it on the ground where I park, could just be the filter

you can look up this motor online for more details

Transmission is a turbo 350 which is a three speed automatic

The tranny was rebuilt two weeks ago so it is fresh and shifts wonderful

all new gaskets and seals

shift kit

race sprag

heavy duty rebuild kit

no leaks

Rear end:

stock 12 bolt rear end with a set of 4:11 gears and a posi

I have had no problems with this setup other


about two foot of 3 inch pipe running out of a set of ceramic coated headers into dual Flowmaster 10's and turn-downs under the cab.


I rewired the truck about two years ago using a kit from American Autowire that it similar to the Painless wiring kit. It includes wiring for auto locks and windows and other accessories but I did not use any of that. It has the updated fuses you would find in a new truck instead of the old glass fuses.

all wiring in engine bay tucked in fender and wrapped


aftermarket Kenwood head unit

two 6x9 speakers in separate boxes.

wired for an amp and sub but do not currently have either hooked up


headlights are aftermaket clear euro headlights from Summit with (not cheap ebay lights) with a set of HIDs

all marker lights have been replaced with LED marker lights

tail lights and front turn signals are LED

LED lights in the gauge cluster and cargo light also


bench set

black carpet was replaced right before I purchased the truck

aftermarket grant steering wheel

the speedometer is not accurate and I have a temperature gauge mounted below the dash

Paint, Frame, and Body

Solid frame with minimal surface rust

Body is also solid with no rust

repainted the factory color 4 years ago which is Huggar Orange

no money spared with paint, multiple coats of primer, base, and clear

I would say the paint is 8/10, it is not flawless but looks wonderful and the body is straight

above the bed on the passenger side cab the paint has cracked

small bubbles on bottom of doors

all trim was replaced when truck was repainted

the inner grill and tailgate were also replaced

wheel wells are painted Huggar Orange to match

the inside of the bed was not painted when truck was repainted so does show signs of wear

Suspension, Steering and Brakes:

the truck still has factory drum brakes, I have never had a problem with them but if you have never driven an older vehicle it is different from the braking system on a new truck or car

front and rear are coil springs

I purchased a 2-4 lowering kit from Classic Performance Parts which consisted of new springs and gas-charged mono-tube shocks. The truck handled ten times better after this change was made. The steering is good for a forty-five year old truck and there is not much play at all in the steering wheel.

Wheels and tires:

6 lug

I have always ran a eight inch rally tire on the truck and they performed well

the tire tread now is 50%

the wheels are original but the two rear wheels are missing center caps

I also have dark window tint on all windows and a dark brow across the windshield.

I have put a lot of time into this truck and can tell you anything you want to know about it. It still has the sticker in the dash listing factory upgrades. I'm sure I missed a few things but I am willing to answer any questions you have. I have done 99.9 % of the labor either myself or with the help of friends and family. I have most of the paperwork from when purchases were made. Most parts were purchased from Summit Racing. I would drive this truck across the country in a heartbeat. All trade offers with or without cash are welcome. You can reach me at 404-966-2649 text or call. Thanks.
