1971 Chevrolet C-10

For sale one 71 Chevy C10 project vehicle. Solid California vehicle in the desirable standard cab step side short bed configuration. This is an original short bed vehicle and not a chopped down long bed. Vehicle will need various aspects of the body addressed but overall a great body to start with. Vehicle is a base work pickup and quite original. Drive train consists of straight 6, 292 cubic inch engine backed by a floor shifted 4 speed transmission. Drive train is original down to the factory oil bath air cleaner. This is a 2WD truck. Options are sparse, the floor shifted transmission and the power assisted brakes are really the only two that I can discern. Does have standard front disc brakes and drums in the rear. Truck is manual steering and not power assisted. Interior is in good shape. Cab interior has been repainted white and bench seat has been recovered. Presently has home carpeting inside. This is a radio delete, heater only vehicle, again a work truck. Body is in good shape give its years. Truck has never been in an accident and it shows. Truck was originally green on the exterior. At present when I purchased it previous owner had started on the body work. I have not touched it in any aspect so it sits as I received it. Floor pans are solid and rust free. The rocker panels on both side do have some rust starting to eat through which I have pictured. Driver side fender front lower section has a rust hole as well. Otherwise no other serious rust on the rest of the body or frame. Body will have various dings, dents, and surface rust but nothing I would call major or unfixable. The bed has been replaced with a single piece of plywood. I have taken this out and taken pictures to show you the general condition of the suspension and bed. With regards to how the vehicle drives, I have never driven this and have always had it towed. The gentleman I purchased it from had stated he drove it home and parked it and started working on it. That was 17 years ago in 1999. It has not been driven since. During this time it was in covered storage and esd not exposed to outside weather elements. The buyer will need to assume that everything will need to be gone through and should treat it like a non-running vehicle. All systems should be checked and fluids should be drained and replaced assuming the engine still runs. I do not guarantee nor warranty that this vehicle will start up and I have never attempted to myself. Consumable items like, brake pads, tires should be considered as needing replacement even if they do not appear to need it so as to ensure proper vehicle driving safety. Other things to note is that the rear window is cracked and will need replacement. Vehicle comes with front and rear bumpers as well as grille & surround. Please note that these items are in poor shape and will need complete replacement as they have various dents and cracks, again this was a work truck. I am including them as courtesy cores. Vehicle will need various other items such as side mirrors and wiper arm assemblies amongst other things. Includes under hood light wiring harness which is presently out of the vehicle. Please note what you see is what you are getting with the vehicle. I do not have any extra parts and everything has been pictured. I purchased the truck with the intent of restoring it but realized I don’t have the time for it. Would make for a great restoration starting point for someone.

Vehicle is presently in enclosed storage so my apologies on some of the angles due to lack of space. Due to limitation on the amount of pictures that can be upload I have shown only the basic pictures here. I have taken over 40 photos of all aspects of the truck. Please contact me to view additional photos.
