1973 Chevrolet C-101973 Chevrolet Chevy C-10 C10 Cheyenne GMC 2wd Long bed Pickup Pick Up Truck
Up for sale is a very clean, ery original, 973 Chevy Cheyenne C-10. It's a standard cab, ong bed, wd truck. It has a 77' 305 motor in it and I believe a numbers matching TH400 transmission (I have yet to confirm the tranny however). The truck's Odometer says 14587, ut that is unconfirmed. I got the truck with the engine installed already however nothing was really hooked up. The previous owner started the swap but never finished it. I started tinkering with it and after turning it by hand I got it to fire up for about 10 seconds with no adjustments to the distributor or carb. I didn't want to run it too long without everything else installed.
This truck was bought Brand New in Sevierville TN and then made its way over to Corryton TN. It comes with the original glovebox paperwork and dealer literature as seen in the photos. I believe I'm the 3rd owner. The truck has a clean Tennessee Title in my name and it is currently registered. This has been an east Tennessee truck it's whole life
ENGINE:The engine isn't number matching but was supposedly pulled running fine from another truck to pop into the C10. The carb is a Holley 1850-4 and I purchased the factory rebuild kit for it. I performed about half of the rebuild to test out the motor. I installed a new mechanical fuel pump along with a fuel filter and tested the motor uncorked with no exhaust manifolds installed. It does fire up and sounds strong. It has a Holley Intake manifold. It has an HEI distributor setup so there is no external ignition coil (The 73' model year didn't have HEI from the factory I believe). I put brand new spark plugs gapped at 35 and new plug wires on it. I also installed a new alternator for it. I performed a full synthetic oil change and got a new filter. I have headers for the truck that you can see in the photos. The factory single exhaust system is present, o you can take whatever exhaust route you'd like. I don't have the factory exhaust manifold however the piping goes to the engine bay as it should. The fan on the motor is aftermarket however I believe I have the factory fan as you can see in the parts photos. That will be included as well. The power steering pump is not installed but comes with the truck. All of the cooling system parts appear to be here as well. I have some brand new Radiator hoses to go along with it. I did not hook up the cooling system to test the engine which is why I only ran it for a limited time.
The stamp on the front passenger side of the block shows the code "C7F433451 T0322UTB". This looks to be decoded to:
C = Chevy truck7 = 1977F = Flint plant433451 = sequence number
T = Tonawanda plant03 = March22 = 22nd day of the monthUTB = 1977 305 from C-10
ENGINE BAY:The wiring appears to all be there. The fuel line is routed from the tank however I am unsure of the status of the fuel tank level and contents. I tested the motor with a fuel line to a fuel tank to ensure I was feeding it clean fuel. It does not come with a battery as I was using one from another car of mine to test it out.
TRANSMISSION:The tranny has plenty of fluid in it that looks pretty clean. I have NOT confirmed what type it is nor what year it is from.
REAR END:I believe it is a "12 bolt" rear end".
AC / HEATThe blower motor runs fine but I have not played with the internal Heat/air controls. This was a factory AC car and comes with the equipment shown in the photos (I believe it has everything required to hook up the AC).
BRAKES:It has front discs and rear drums. It has power brakes. The master Cylinder has brake fluid but I haven't really tested them as I got it towed from the previous owner to me. The E-brake works well.
BODY:There is a rust here and there but the cab itself doesn't have major rust, hich is a good thing! Please look at photos to understand the rust it has. I believe it still wears its original paint. Overall it is very nice for a 43 year old Tennessee Truck. It is missing a few trim pieces here and there but not much. I believe it has a tow package installed as well. It comes with one GM key that works in both doors and the ignition. All dorrs open and shit fine. The hood latch works great. The tailgate works great. The body has NOT been washed by me. I'd love to wash it and take photos but it's been too cold. Based looking closely at it, t looks like it will shine up very nicely.
INTERIOR:The interior is in good shape overall considering its age and is very complete. When I bough it it had a "Chevy" seat cover on it. Under that I found the seat very nice for its age! The seat has some tears on the drivers-side bottom cushion and the seatback is very nice. The Door Panels are in excellent shape. Both doors lock and the handles function properly. Both windows roll down and up. Both doors have functional fresh air vents. There are minor cracks on the dash and the headliner is fully in tact however it is sagging. The aftermarket radio powers up. The horn works. The Windshield wipers work fine. The carpet looks to be original and is in decent shape. The plastic/glass on the gauges is very clear. The Interior lights and headlights don't seem to power up when you turn the key but I'm guessing it is a fuse or a loose wire. The turn signals click as they should. I have not really tried to get the lighting working as I was more focused on verifying that the motor was solid.
WHEELS:Nice wheels with center caps. The tires hold pressure fine. The front-passenger tire was not holding pressure well so I got it repaired at a tire shop.
THINGS IT IS MISSING:Flywheel cover(Missing), alve Cover Oil Cap (Missing), adiator Cap (Missing), alve Cover mounting hardware (Some of the hold downs are missing), indshield Wiper (only has one). All of these are very small things that should not be hard to find or buy. I was focused on confirming that the engine was good so I never bought these.
