Description:

1978 Chevrolet C-10 Custom Deluxe

Here's the deal, kids:
This is a 1978 C10 Custom Deluxe pass smog on 06/22/2016 still valid. This is not a luxury SUV, or a maintenance-free disposable import. It has some rust, has wind noise, and character.
It's a Hot Rod. It rides/drives like a Hot Rod. All of these are GOOD things.
It is not new, it is not pristine, but it is from CA and it's Cool!
If you do not own a toolbox, have never changed your own oil, and are scared
of firearms: THIS VEHICLE IS NOT FOR YOU.
If you have been posting on facebook about how excited you are for pumpkin
latte season: THIS VEHICLE IS NOT FOR YOU.
If you get offended easy and often, whine to your co-workers, and bitch a
lot: THIS VEHICLE IS NOT FOR YOU.
If you feel you are owed anything in the world & have a bullshit job where
you fail to produce: THIS VEHICLE IS NOT FOR YOU.
If you own a bieber album, white oakleys, affliction t-shirts, or those
candy-assed stitched-pocket jeans: THIS VEHICLE IS NOT FOR YOU.
If you consider the 2nd Amendment a relic and have never owned a firearm:
THIS VEHICLE IS NOT FOR YOU.
If, however, you have BALLS OF STEEL, this Hot Rod is for you.
Do you laugh at danger, and tempt fate?
Have you ever uttered the words, "Hold my beer and watch this ..."?
Have any of your friends quit hanging out because you were too much fun?
Do you have the number of a friend with cash memorized for bail?
When you pass an abandoned flatbed farm truck along a fenceline do you
consider taking on another project?
Is your ol' lady really sick of the random piles of parts, greasy
footprints, and empty beer bottles in the garage?
-could you not care less?
Do you own a service manual for every vehicle you ever owned?
Do you still miss your first ride? ( mine was a '63 Bel-air)
Can you carry on a two hour conversation discussing tools, scars, and
hi-lift jacks?
Remember when tool companies had the balls to put half-naked beauty queens
on their calendars?
Do you consider the Prius an abominable affront to the Gods of
displacement, torque, and All Mighty Internal Combustion?
If you answered in the affirmative to the preceding: This is your kind of
hot rod!
DETAILS:
-The badass little SBC 350 OEM is bullet-proof and starts and runs
like the proverbial champ. It has an rebuild Quadrajet by me. Ne, Radiator and upper/lower hose.
-Tranny is a TH300 or Th400 I have not checked and operates perfectly . Runs cool, stops quick and
turns heads! It's set up as a "patina runner''...(the tail lights, brake
lights and gauges works).
QUESTIONS:
-Why are you selling?
I can't justify owning it anymore. Motorsickles, work, travel, and many
other hot rod projects and beer have consumed my time and money.
Someone else needs to appreciate the Chevy for what it is: awesome American
mechanical artistry.
-What's wrong with it?
Not a damn thing! Crank it up and drive it on a road trip! I have driven it
to car shows and had a blast!
-Will you take [insert ridiculously stupid low number here]?
No. If I wanted [ridiculously low number] I would have asked [ridiculously
low number]
-Would this make a good car for my son/daughter?
Hell. Yes. Not only a good car, a learning experience. Introduction to
vehicular maintenance.
