1971 Chevrolet C-10 Custom

This a turn key, hot rod pick up ready to go anywhere. There are $5000 worth of new parts in this truck without counting labor to install. with $13,000 total invested so far. The reserve is set far below the investment.
This a rare original medium green color truck with 1 re-paint, not many of these. It is also a factory V8 with custom trim and a factory short bed,not many of these either. . It is a survivor with all of the original body parts, no accidents and even all of the trim is still there except 1 fender emblem. So rare color, rare patina, rare short bed and it is a survivor with a major mechanical rebuild.
When driving old cars, the best ones are the ones that go out somewhere and come back with no issues like this one.
It is a very nice running and driving, short bed chevy pickup . This is real patina from the sun of South Carolina. The truck mechanicals are completely gone through and you can take this anywhere. Yes you could fly in and drive home.
The Chevy drives great, tracks straight and handles great too with the new CPP suspension and lowering kit.The new suspension combined with the new rally wheels and new mastercraft tires make for a smooth ride. Vintage Corvette center caps. 15 x 8 wheels with 235 75 tires.
The body received new inner and outer rockers, right and left front floor pans, 2 cab supports and cab corners. New door seals and sill plates. This was all professionally done. The cab is rebuilt to make it strong again. These tucks always seem to rust in the rockers even Arizona versions The windshield is new along with new wipers. There is rust in the door bottoms, the tailgate bottom and the bed floor. Nothing that keeps it from driving or from car shows. The right front fender rusted in the right front from the battery tray location. The body is pretty straight. It has all of its original body parts and I don't think it has ever been in a major wreck.
New CPP lowering kit, 3 and 5 inches with new shocks and new springs.
The frame and bottom are surface rust only with 2 new floor sections.
The brakes are completely new. New discs, calipers, hoses and hardware. New drums, shoes, wheel cylinders, brake hoses, emergency brake cables and hardware.
The drive shaft has a new center bearing and all new u joints.
The exhaust is a new Thrush system thru headers that exit behind the rear wheels in the factory position. Nice sound but not annoying in the cab.
The engine is a very smooth 305 V8 with some go fast parts. Edelbrock manifold, new Edelbrock 1406 carb with electric choke, Hooker headers, new powder coated tall valve covers.. GM electronic distributor with recent cap and rotor, new wires, new plugs and then tuned for the new carb snd set up. New valve stem seals. New radiator, belts, heater core, hoses and alternator. Recent battery, oil change and filter. The transmission is a saginaw 3 speed with good clutch andshifts that are smooth and quiet. New Hurst floor shifter. The truck is fast but doesn't use a lot of gas. 15 MPG in mixed city, country driving on regular gas. The rear end is a 12 bolt and factory install with 3.73 gears. Yes the truck will drive hghway speeds with no problem and the speedo is accurate.
On the inside it has a new retrosound AM FM radio, a new rubber mat, seat belts and the heater is good. The interior is very clean and presentable. All lights work on inside and outside. Including license plate, back up, side markers, headlights, tail lights, and power supply. There is a rust spot at the top corner inside, pictured but it does not leak. New windshield. New Grant wheel with working horn. The gas tank and sending unit are new wired to the working gas gauge. All gauges work except the ammeter. Drivers door does not lock. Door seals are still seating in, need to close doors hard to shut until these seat.
