350 V8 Crate
This 1965 Chevrolet C10 has a cool/classic style inside and out. But you can also tell from its stance that it likes to be a cruiser. And with the upgraded suspension, wheels, and V8 power, it delivers on its first impression.
There\'s just something extraordinary about this generation of C10. Chevy designed these with a large style line that hugs the hood and then wraps around it as it runs the entire length of the profile. You can see it nicely here as glossy mint green paint adds definition to the bends. It\'s the kind of color you\'d expect from the 1960s, but it\'s a fresh application for added radiance. And that sets the right tone for the whole truck. You will see vintage pieces and well-placed upgrades to make for a vintage pickup that\'s also a custom cruiser. So there\'s the right impression for a fun classic. That means it doesn\'t want you to be nervous about taking it out for a drive, and when you do, there are plenty of details to show off. Good fundamentals include a clean windshield, newer seals, and a bright front end with a shining chrome bumper and grille. And there are nice updates like the blue-dot tail lights and fresher natural wood in the truck bed. We especially like the look of the white wheels. Not only do they go well with the white inserts on the full-length side trim, but they are also a large 17-inch size that looks great with the lowered stance.
The interior follows a similar theme: a very period-correct appearance with well-placed upgrades. The smooth dash and simple door panels give you the right vintage truck straightforwardness. Even the Delco AM radio is still on display. But you also get an inviting freshness in two-tone white and beige vinyl bench seats and newer carpeting. And when you have a classic pickup, there\'s always a nice feeling of slipping behind a well-worn factory steering wheel to get in touch with the generations that came before you.
Under the hood is a 350 cubic-inch crate motor. And while this is a newer V8, it\'s presented in a clean and stock style. These are always great for power upgrades, and you already have a four-barrel carburetor and a dual exhaust with Flowmaster mufflers. Plus, its strong-running nature makes it a cruiser from day one. The overall package is quite impressive. You have true truck features like a 12-bolt rear end and a stout but smooth TH400 three-speed automatic transmission. It\'s joined by more modern upgrades like a CPP tubular control arm front end, lowering springs, CPP rear shocks, power brakes with front discs, and Toyo Extensa performance tires.
This is a great vintage C10 that\'s made to be enjoyed in modern times. It makes for a unique pickup that\'s plenty of fun. Call now!
