5.7 Liter V8
This 1972 Chevrolet C10 Cheyenne Super offers all the old school cool you could want in a classic pickup, but it also features the dependability you\'d want in a frequent driver. It\'s got an upgraded power plant under its hood that pairs with a clean, well-fitted appearance that\'s sure to turn heads on the asphalt or at the work site.
This Cheyenne wears a fine looking two-tone red and white exterior that keeps its vintage appearance very much intact. The paint shows well even though it\'s been driven and has a nice, solid shine. This venerable truck closed out the second generation of C10s, which represented Chevy\'s first concerted effort at adapting what had formerly been fairly spartan workhorses for a wider audience. When you put it side by side with the C10s of the previous generation, you\'ll find that it actually bears a stronger resemblance to the more modern trucks that would follow it than the generation of C10s debuting the generation before. The brightwork - as well as the bumpers both fore and aft - are in solid shape, with nothing off kilter or showing any serious dings or blemishes, and the front grille looks impressively clean with a signature Chevy bowtie positioned at its center. The diamond plate surface over the top of the rear bumper provides a strong reminder of this pickup\'s rugged, purpose-centered heritage.
The interior retains a thoroughly factory configuration and has received the attention it\'s needed over the years to keep it looking sharp. The bench seat in its center features a cover bearing the houndstooth check pattern that was very much en vogue in its day and combines vinyl and cloth that sits over ample padding, so it\'s plenty comfortable for even the longest of trips that would be a luxury for many classics but very much in the wheelhouse of this one. Underneath, a clean expanse of black carpeting punctuated with a pair of Chevy-branded floormats adds a nice bit of contrast. This is a fresh, vital-looking interior - the door panels to each side sit flush with woodgrain accents matching those on the dash and every red steel surface in sight looks well-prepped and shiny. The dash area is in good order, with a fresh looking panel surrounding an assortment of clear gauges and a pad showing no visible cracks or warpage. A quality audio experience comes via an added AM/FM stereo with iPod connectivity that teams with a pair of speakers mounted behind the seat. Regardless of how hot the weather gets outside, you\'ll have no issue staying comfortable - the air conditioning is blowing cold and strong in this classic.
Upgraded, dependable power sits under the hood in the form of a \'90s era, throttle body injected 5.7 liter engine. It\'s in very good form, starting up with no hesitation at all and pulling with plenty of conviction as it teams with a 4-speed automatic 700r4 whose overdrive gear brings motor-sparing low RPMs at highway speeds. An electric fan pairs with the radiator up front to keep temperatures under control during stop and go driving, while the added Flowmaster dual exhaust provides a deep, rumbling note. Both power steering and power brakes with discs up front are on board, so the navigating is easy and stops are low-effort and dependable as this vintage Chevy rolls on its set of 15 Rallye wheels outfitted with Futura GLS Super Sport tires.
