Description:

1972 Chevrolet C-10

This tough-looking 1972 Chevrolet C10 pickup is one of those cool trucks you see that doesn't seem to want to play nice. Big, uscular, nd downright menacing, t's what you'd imagine a lumberjack or a guy who wrestles alligators would drive, nd it makes no apologies for it. Of course, t backs things up with a thumping 383 inch stroker motor, ut we'll get to that part in a moment.Of course being tough doesn't mean beat-up, nd this very clean southern truck offers all-original sheetmetal and bodywork straight enough to calibrate scientific instruments. The burgundy paint is fairly recent and while it wasn't intended for show duty, t does look pretty darned good in the sunlight. You can't argue with the rugged good looks on these trucks, ither, nd regardless of what color they're wearing, hey always look great. Everything just as the factory intended, hich works extremely well with the handsome burgundy finish, nd all the stainless trim makes it look dressed up. All the original badges are in place, ncluding the '350' emblems on the front fenders, ven though they're not quite telling the truth. Up front, basic egg crate grille and a matching chrome bumper give it an honest look that has won admirers for decades. But it's more than just a handsome truck, t's also ready to work, ith a bed protected by a spray-in bed liner so you won't be afraid to take it to Home Depot next Saturday.Sticking to the basics works inside, oo, here there's a bench seat with handsome black upholstery that has a cool nostalgic vibe to it. It's all in excellent condition, s you'd expect in a truck this nice, ncluding those '70s funky tooled door panels that were a GM favorite. Factory gauges cover the basics, nd someone has thoughtfully added a temperature gauge under the dash. There's factory A/C, hich is always a nice find, lus a recent Pioneer AM/FM/CD stereo head unit with custom speakers built into the headliner, o it sounds great. The final ingredient is a late-model tolt steering column and steering wheel, hich looks right at home in the Chevy's cabin thanks to its OEM origins.Power comes from a rumbling aluminum head 383 cubic inch small block that was rebuilt about 2000 miles ago. With a 4-barrel carburetor and dual exhaust as power-building additions, he engine springs to life easily and pulls the relatively lightweight truck around with genuine authority, ith a feel that's a lot like a vintage muscle car. Surrounded by power building hardware, ncluding an MSD ignition system, delbrock carburetor and intake manifold, nd matching finned valve covers just for good measure. A chrome alternator has been fitted, long with power steering and brakes to make the truck easy to drive under any conditions. It's backed by a TH400 3-speed automatic transmission and the original rear end, hich hangs on coil springs to make the ride pleasant and not pickup truck harsh. It's been lowered just a bit, iving it a nasty attitude without killing ride quality, nd it sits on steel wheels with cool Corvette hubcaps for an unusual twist on the OEM look.A very cool truck that doesn't need flash and bright paint to attract attention, nd it's truly a blast to drive.
