1965 Chevrolet C-10 Custom CabFor sale is a beautiful 1965 Chevrolet 1/2 ton C-10 Custom Cab Long Bed Fleetside Pickup .....this unique truck has been driven less than 36,000 original miles! It was used almost exclusively on a desert ranch property all of it's life by a superviser and is essentially rust free!...rock solid lower fenders, doors, cab floors, corners, tailgate... laser straight body with one (two-tone ) repaint.....the original owner disclosed that when the truck was prepared for paint, there was no bondo evident anywhere and that the body had never been hit in any way..The original wood flooring in the bed remains intact and is now covered by all new heavy sheet metal that was very nicely installed on top of the boards for better sound insulation.
All of the the chrome is excellent and includes a polished front grill, N.O.S front bumper guards that were just added and a full set of all new stainless Fleetside trim pieces.
The 327 motor was tested and registered compression readings as new...all new gaskets were installed so there are no leaks.
The fresh 700 R4 automatic transmission was added just before we bought the truck and travels through the gears by a tall stick Locar shifter.....
The complete front suspension-upper, lower ball joints, control arm bushings, inner, outer tie rods, shocks, quick ratio power steering box, power steering pump, dropped front spindles, power disc brakes are all new and function beautifully...
This truck is a dream to drive and receives a great deal of attention wherever it goes for it's super clean original appearance...it has a great aggressive stance, brand new dual exhaust with the vintage glasspack sound of that era...brand new whitewall radials and deep dish chrome rims with bow tie baby moons look awesome.
The brand new interior is exquisite....2 toned upholstery blends perfectly with the exterior color scheme...the cab paint in white is immaculate with brand new gauge cluster, carpet, sunvisors, Am/FM/CD system, new tinted windshield and gasket...practically all of the wiring on the truck has been redone....new weatherstripping and window treatments...original custom cab steering wheel has been restored, new gas tank added....the gas gauge is brand new but it seems to read accurately whenever it wants to....this is the only "issue" on the entire truck.
This may be one of the nicest 60's trucks anywhere in the country for under $20K....look, drives and performs as new and absolutely will not disappoint....use it as a daily driver and participate in shows and cruises as well knowing that this truck will hold it's value and that all the work was very carefully done.
We welcome comparisons of price, quality, condition and value with any other Chevy truck built in the sixties that is currently on sale here on Ebay or anywhere else at this price.... it is truly a great gift for someone who appreciates the total cost in professional labor, time (3 years) and attention to detail energy it takes to complete a build like this.
We also encourage prospective buyers to inspect the truck in person...we have attempted to be totally honest and transparent through every single word of description of condition...this truck is for sale locally and we reserve the right to end the auction early. This has been nearly a complete, on frame restoration. but it remains as a 51 year old vehicle that is being sold as is, where is, with no warranty of any type expressed or implied...we will be happy to cooperate with shipping procedures....the costs of the shipping shall be entirely those of the buyer...this truck is currently registered in California through next year and has original black and gold California plates..located next to the 101 Freeway, 40 minutes North of Los Angeles, about 1 hour from the port of Long Beach if transporting by boat carrier...easy access and departure.
We will be donating proceeds from this sale to assist homeless veterans, their families and other persons of need....we all know this is a difficult time of year to sell a vehicle...the very low asking price reflects our desire to complete a quick sale and help those less fortunate during this time.
