1972 Chevrolet C-10 Super Cheyenne

This 1972 Chevy C10 Cheyenne is exactly the kind of truck you would build for yourself. A few smart modifications for easy cruising, a cool stance, and a sleek black paint job that lets the original styling speak for itself. This is a no-excuses truck in every way.Beautifully finished in attractive and period-correct black livery, this pickup looks like it's dressed up for a night out on the town, not a set of coveralls for work. The classic shape of the early C10 is undeniably attractive, but when it's wrapped in high-quality bodywork and a glossy black paint job, it's downright arresting. Look at the reflections in the body's surfaces; there's not a ripple or distortion anywhere, which only means that someone spent a TON of time and money making it look that way. It does have a few signs of use, and we have to admit that we love the louvered hood, all of which mean it's ideal for the local cruise night. All the factory trim remains, including the cool woodgrained panels on the lower body and tailgate, which are remarkably well preserved or nicely done reproductions, and the grille is a sleek billet piece that really cleans up the front end. The bed is neatly finished and with a hard-shell tonneau cover, it becomes a large, weatherproof trunk for all your gear.The upscale theme continues in the cab where it appears to be a combination of restored pieces and nice original stuff. A highly detailed set of bucket seats were optional, and the detailed upholstery was part of the Cheyenne package. More woodgrain appears on the original door panels, which also appear to be nicely-preserved original pieces, and the cool center console, which is a custom-built piece that houses the Air Ride controller and gauges plus the AM/FM/CD stereo head unit. Black carpets make it feel plush from behind the wheel, and the dash is full of original instruments plus a very cool set of auxiliary gauges in individual pods molded into the dash pad. There's factory A/C, power windows and locks, a tilt column, and a steering wheel that has an OEM look, as if it came from a Camaro or Corvette. A sliding rear window is always a great feature, creating a nice cooling effect inside without excessive wind, for those days when you don't quite need the A/C. The engine is a fuel injected Vortec 5.3 liter V8, which is a neat fit in the early Chevy's engine bay. For the most part, it's got a very OEM look, although a few custom aluminum bits for the radiator and air box were crafted to make it work properly. Power steering and brakes are included, and with fuel injection, it starts instantly, idles smoothly, and has an awesome torque curve that makes it a blast to drive. Backed by a TH350 3-speed automatic transmission and sturdy 10-bolt rear end, it's still ready and willing to work. It's nimble, too, with a Fatman Fabrications Mustang II front suspension with rack-and-pinion steering and disc brakes, while the rear is held up with the original control arms and coils. A custom exhaust system with glasspack-style mufflers gives the Vortec V8 a unique voice, and the aforementioned Air Ride suspension fine-tunes the ride height so it's always got the perfect stance. Period-perfect Rally wheels look right and totally stuff the wheelwells with fat 235/60/15 front and 295/50/15 rear BFGoodrich T/A radials.All the time and money has already been spent, now all that remains is some quality cruising time.
