1983 Chevrolet C10
Rarely do vehicles we sell come out so lopsided in favor of the buyer, but the truth is, you couldn't duplicate this 1983 Chevy pickup with a budget three times bigger than the asking price. Cool two-tone paint, a custom interior, and plenty of V8 power mean that this truck still has what it takes to get noticed on Saturday night. You can count me as one of those folks who like the look of the short bed on a regular cab pickup because the proportions are almost ideal. Of course, this truck is done hauling stuff, but with the slammed stance and two-tone paint job, it looks about a mile long and thanks to a sizeable pile of cash going into the paint a few years ago, it looks fantastic. Super straight bodywork is completely stock save for the rear roll pan but it sure looks trick. Once everything was blocked and straight, it received a few coats of copper and black urethane, a blue pinstripe between them, and enough clear to make it all shine. In the following years, it was driven, shown, and enjoyed, but even so it looks quite good out in the sun. A blacked-out grille gives the front end a sleek look and the bed is protected with a spray-in bedliner, so it still works as a truck. Looks cool and practical? Win! You know that a truck this dramatic on the outside needs to be special inside, and it doesn't disappoint. A custom black seat cover on the bench seat looks up-to-date and features Chevy Bowtie emblems to tie it together. It's comfortable enough to live in all day and looks great with only minor signs of use. The original dash is full of original instruments and they're joined by a tach on top of the dash and the usual trio of auxiliary dials underneath. Very cool custom door panesl blend in with the rest of the interior and you'll note that this truck carries options like power windows and a tilt steering column, meaning that it's very user-friendly today. There's a modern AM/FM/CD head unit in the dash, which delivers sound to a bevy of speakers throughout the truck. It also has a sliding rear window, which is great for ventilation and tinted glass helps with temperatures and the cool factor. Following the sizzling paint and eyeball-popping interior, the 350 cubic inch V8 under the hood seems rather ordinary. However, you shouldn't underestimate it, as it carries an Edelbrock Air Gap intake and Holley carburetor, World Products cylinder heads, MSD ignition, long-tube headers, and a little bit of chrome. For a truck like this, it's important for it to have the power to back up the look. Even so, it starts easily, idles well, and moves the slammed pickup with ease, all with a great V8 soundtrack from the twin pipes exiting together under the tailgate. A TH350 3-speed automatic transmission powers the original rear end, and the incredible in-the-weeds stance looks cool without an abusive ride. It's quite clean underneath, the Flowmaster mufflers sound great, and 15-inch Vision Legend wheels carry staggered 255/60/15 front and 275/60/15 rear performance radials. This is a whole heck of a lot of custom truck for the price of a 5-year-old Hyundai. If it's attention you crave, this truck will deliver in a very big way. Call today!
