1972 Chevrolet Other Pickups Daily Driver
The 1967-72 C/K series trucks are the most coveted trucks in America largely because, unlike their peers, they can be used as daily drivers without hesitation. This 1972 K10 is no exception. Having lived its entire life in dry arid southern Washington, before spending a few months as our shop truck in Utah, this truck is a well maintained vehicle blessed with laser straight panels and a patina created by Mother Nature herself. We have 2 shop trucks that we love and only need one. We will be very sad when and if this is the one that sells. The shop owner we purchased it from in Southern Washington maintained this 1972 K10 in outstanding mechanical condition. The photos speak for themselves. Please look, and then come see this truck in person. The trucks body is in excellent shape with the original paint finely aged with areas of oxidation and wear along with some minor surface rust. All this combined makes for a very attractive Patina. While some panels have some surface rust there is no rot on this vehicle anywhere. Indeed, this truck is the perfect Chevy K10. It has the fabulous lines that you expect from one of the most beautifully designed trucks in America combined with the rugged patina of the American West. Its handsome great looks garner a lot of attention yet being unrestored the truck has outstanding utility. Take it to the hardware store, take it to the mountains, hunting, fishing, Starbucks you name it. This is a truck you can enjoy as is or it’s the perfect candidate to turn it into a trailer queen. You can’t go wrong either way a powerful 350 engine, with Edelbrock 650cfm carburetor, stock intake manifold, dual exhaust, and four speed transmission, this truck starts easily and runs and drives like new. Thanks to outstanding maintenance over many years this truck has zero leaks or known mechanical issues. Underneath, this truck utilizes stock Dana 44-5F Front axle with splicer manual hubs and Saginaw HO52 rear axle, a NP205 transfer case, as well as stock gearing. The truck sits on a set of 35X12.6 R15 BF Goodrich Tires size on chrome rims. The truck has a 4 inch lift, amazing road manners at highway speeds and great off-road capabilities as well. The truck’s interior is not restored but the seat, door panels, carpet, dash pad are all in excellent used condition, need nothing and very comfortable. All gauges, window cranks and switches work as expected. Clean, straight, well maintained examples like this are impossible to find. With 1972 examples reaching incredible prices at the 2016 Barrett Jackson, Scottsdale auction, this truck represents an outstanding investment as well. See recent values.
