If you're in the market for something fun that's guaranteed to hold its appeal for a very long time, it's hard to go wrong with a lust worthy truck! America's favorite mode of transportation is finally commanding the respect it deserves. And with awesome classics like this clean C10 mixing red carpet looks with everyday drivability, it's not hard to see why. A perfect blend of timeless style and proven mechanicals, this handsome half-ton is a first rate exercise in old school charm and vintage swagger. And if you're looking for a super cool cruiser that can be enjoyed for years to come, it's the classic of your dreams!

BODYWORK/TRIM

As far as styling goes, few vehicles have aged better than late '60s and early '70s Chevrolets. In fact, toeing the line between rock-solid and refined, the Action Line C/K is probably one of the most attractive trucks ever built. Making the best of that model's boxy proportions, this fleetside C10 seals slick, black paint under a glossy clearcoat shell. That sinister 2-stage highlights a laser-straight body, the result of a fresh restoration that wrapped in the Spring of 2015. That clean body's top-notch metalwork is, from the outside of its panels, completely undetectable. And best of all, those panels remain just as GM designed them, with nothing frenched, filled or altered in any major way.

However, there are some cool details that really make this build pop. The reboot began with a black-trimmed grille, which hangs a vivid bowtie and bright halogen headlights above a mirrored bumper and factory parking lamps. Behind that grille, a domed hood leads the eye to fresh glass that's centered between a factory antenna, polished wipers and a small cargo light. At the sides of that glass, the truck's monochromatic, wet-look profile has been shaved of everything but traditional door handles, a simple fuel filler and 1-piece marker lamps. And at the back of that profile, a smoothed tailgate hides a clean Oak bed between trim-free tail lights and a second mirrored bumper.

ENGINE

Gaze in to the truck's body-matched engine bay and you'll find 427 cubic inches of Chevrolet big block! At the top of that storied mill, a Quick Fuel Technology 4-barrel mixes wind supplied by a polished and decaled air filter with fuel that's piped through stainless fluid lines and a mechanical pump. That air/fuel mixture floods a polished Edelbrock intake on the way to iron Chevrolet heads, which hang polished valve covers between a polished breather and Hooker Competition headers. At the back of those heads, an aftermarket HEI distributor sequences spark through loomed Moroso Wire Technologies plug wires. Opposite that distributor, a combination of billet and steel pulleys spin a rebuilt alternator, requisite power steering and a modern AC compressor. In front of those pulleys, a fresh aluminum radiator circulates coolant around a stylized support and shrouded pulley fan. And details like a Lokar throttle linkage, a CPP master cylinder and factory-spec Harrison AC components frame the Chevy Orange engine in a sea of pleasing and functional ancillaries.

DRIVETRAIN/SUSPENSION

With that kind of power on tap, it should come as no surprise that the bottom of this C10 features a host of noteworthy upgrades. Everything starts with a sturdy, factory chassis that was thoroughly powder-coated during the truck's frame-off restoration. Behind the sweet engine, a proven 700R4 4-speed engages a stout, 12-bolt rear end. That fully sorted drivetrain rides on a lowered, factory-spec suspension. Stops are provided by red, power-assisted calipers, which squeeze drilled and slotted rotors at all four corners. Modern power steering provides good feel and great performance. Spent gases float from the aforementioned headers to Mandrel-bent pipes and polished Magnaflow mufflers. Power meets the pavement through Billet Specialties Bonneville Gs, which spin a quartet of 255/55R18 Nitto NT420S. And everything, from this Chevy's stainless fluid lines to its urethane chassis bushings, is fresh, expertly finished and ready for action.

INTERIOR

In the '70s, trucks were all about comfort and utility – not DVDs, wireless and navigation systems. That's why it's so refreshing to hop in the cab of this purposeful but nicely appointed half-ton. The star of the show is a houndstooth bench that definitely ups the style quotient. Below that seat, stain-free carpet is stretched tight between fresh sound deadening and stainless-trimmed foot pedals. Above that carpet, petite door panels found chrome door handles behind chrome window cranks. Above those panels, a stainless-trimmed headliner leads a manually operated courtesy lamp. Steering is channeled through a familiar Chevy rally wheel, which spins around a tilting column. And at the front of the cockpit, a stylish dash hangs factory telemetry beside factory air conditioning and a direct-fit stereo.
