1972 Chevrolet C-10 Cheyenne Super
This 1972 Chevrolet C10 Cheyenne Super is exactly the kind of truck you would build for yourself. A few smart modifications for easy cruising, a cool stance, and a sleek paint job that lets the original styling speak for itself. This is a no-excuses truck in every way.
Beautifully finished in attractive PPG Gravestone urethane, 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 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 was finished about five years ago and as a result, it does have a few signs of use, but we have to admit that we love the look, particularly with the cowl induction hood. All the factory trim remains, including the cool stainless stripes on the lower body and woodgrained tailgate, which are remarkably well preserved, and the original factory badges are a nice touch, not a distraction. The bed is neatly finished with a spray-on bedliner and with a snug-fitting 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 some new stuff. The bench seat is from a later Chevy pickup and features a large center console with a pair of cup holders, yet it looks right at home here. More woodgrain appears on the original door panels, which also appear to be nicely-preserved original pieces, and the dashboard, which really warms things up. Dark gray carpets make it feel plush from behind the wheel, and the dash is full of factory instruments, including a rather rare factory tach. There's factory A/C, power windows, 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 300 horsepower 350 cubic inch GM crate motor V8, which is an easy fit in the Chevy's engine bay. For the most part, it's got a very familiar look, including a big Holley carburetor, chrome valve covers, and a matching low-profile air cleaner. Power steering and brakes are included, and with proper tuning, it starts easily, idles smoothly, and has an awesome torque curve that makes it a blast to drive. Backed by a 700R4 4-speed automatic transmission and sturdy 10-bolt rear end, it's still ready and willing to work and is an easy cruiser on the highway. It's nimble, too, thanks to drop spindles that give it that lowered stance, while the rear is held up with the original control arms and coils. A custom exhaust system with mellow-sounding mufflers gives the V8 a unique voice but stays out of the way. Period-perfect Torque Thrust wheels look right and totally stuff the wheelwells with fat 275/60/15 BFGoodrich T/A radials.
All the time and money has already been spent, now all that remains is some quality cruising time. Call today!
