1967 Chevrolet C10 Stepside
This 1967 Chevy C10 pickup neatly blurs the line between street rod and pickup truck. Lowered and wearing a well-done bright red paint job, it grabs your attention and doesn't let up until you've seen all the cool little details. If you like your hardware beautifully detailed and your look timeless, this is the truck you should be driving. Admit it, you're digging how this truck looks, aren't you? Is it the bright red paint? Maybe, but only because it makes the rest of the classic sheetmetal, including the sporty stepside bed do the talking. With the lowered stance, you can see the graceful curve that stretches from the nose to the back of the cab, and the canted front end looks fast, not utilitarian and truck-like. Finish work is quite good, with even gaps and a smooth surface for the eyeball-popping paint to cling to. The flared fenders of the stepside bed always give trucks a high-performance look, but they're also practical, leaving a bed that's devoid of fender wells. It's not so perfect that you're afraid to use it as a truck, and the bed, while wood, isn't refinished so you're afraid to touch it. That's kind of nice, actually. Other custom tricks include the big chrome rear bumper, color-matched grille, and small side mirrors for an old school look. The handsome gray interior is the ideal complement to the bright bodywork, and like the exterior, takes very few liberties with the original design. Even the seat covers and door panels show the factory-style stitching that gives this truck an upscale feel inside. The custom details abound here, too, including a late-model steering wheel and heavy-duty floor mats. For entertainment, an AM/FM/CD stereo head unit was nestled into the dash, feeding speakers in the doors, tweeters in the dash, and subwoofers under the seat. This is a factory A/C truck (the system needs to be serviced) and it also includes a full array of factory gauges that are still handsome after all these years. A sliding rear window is always a welcome addition, and once you experience it you might decide the A/C is superfluous anyway. A great-running 350 cubic inch V8 under the hood gives this truck performance to match its looks. Aluminum heads highlight the list of performance upgrades, along with an Edelbrock carburetor on a stock GM intake. The HEI ignition system reliably lights the fires and dumps the exhaust through a set of long-tube headers and a custom exhaust system that sounds exactly right for the truck's personality. The engine bay is neatly detailed with Chevy Orange on the block, Mickey Thompson finned valve covers, and satin black inner fenders for the perfect background. The transmission is a TH400 3-speed automatic, so it's an effortless highway cruiser and the lowered suspension actually rides quite nicely, thanks to a custom rear sway bar. And those chrome Cragar wheels look awesome with fat 255/70/15 Uniroyal radials all around. If you like the high-profile look, this 1967 Chevy C10 will knock you out with its perfectly simple combination. Call today!
