1966 Chevrolet C-10

Vintage trucks are extremely popular right now, nd if this 1966 Chevrolet C10 is any indication, here's a bright future in old haulers. From the bright turquoise paint to the strong running small block under the hood, his cool pickup nails the original look and feel while offering a few choice upgrades. 1966 was the last year for the Fleetside pickups introduced in 1960, hich offered lower rooflines and a swept-back cab that offered industry-leading space and comfort.Finished in bright turquoise, his truck is a movie star. It's pretty close to the truck's original code 503 Light Green finish, ut has a much more appealing look that's pure nostalgia. The Fleetside offered dramatic styling with lots of swoops and curves, s well as brilliant use of trim, nd all of it remains 100% intact on this hauler. Other styling details include the wing-like lip at the back of the cab, hich probably has no real function but looks really cool. Paint and bodywork are done to a very high standard, nd this truck will be right at home both at local shows and the local lumber yard on a Saturday afternoon if you need some light hauling done. These were well-made rugged machines from new, o it shouldn't be surprising to find one this nice today, nd very little bodywork seems to have been required to get it ready for paint. All the original trim was restored, rom the massive front bumper and delicate egg crate grille to the polished stainless along the sides that is strongly reminiscent of the Impala SS trim from just a few years earlier. But if you need it to work, t's ready, ith a bed that's still carrying a natural wood floor but hasn't been so over-restored that you're afraid to touch it.Trucks were austere machines when they were new, nd this one doesn't vary much from the factory formula. The original bench was recovered in parchment vinyl, ying in perfectly with the handsome gold door panels, ash, nd headliner. Padded dashes and door panels hadn't yet made it to the truck lines, o they've been finished to the same high standards as the rest of the bodywork and there are even gold seat belts to tie it all together. The original gauges are a very cool setup with a single face that certainly looks restored and remains in good condition. An AM/FM/8-track stereo seems to be the lone concession to modern comfort, ut that's a relative term. A black rubber floor mat suggests that this truck is still ready and willing to work and it remains a comfortable place to spend some time.When the truck was restored a few years ago, 350 cubic inch V8 was nestled between the front fenders. As a truck, unction was chosen over style, nd there's no shame in that, o it still wears a stock air cleaner, hevy Orange paint, nd plain valve covers. It runs beautifully, nd all the accessories were freshened, ncluding the alternator, rake master cylinder, nd the big radiator up front. It starts easily with a great V8 rumble from the dual exhaust system, nd with a PowerGlide 2-speed automatic, t's easy to drive. The solid chassis is 100% stock and mostly original, ncluding the suspension and brakes, ut they've added a nice-sounding dual exhaust system with a nice V8 purr on the highway. Rolling stock consists of plain-Jane steelies wearing 225/75/15 blackwall radials and dog dish hubcaps.This is a great truck that can work all day and still clean up nicely for a night out on the town.
