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 brilliant 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 epic PPG Race Red paint under a glossy clearcoat shell. That incredible 2-stage highlights a laser-straight body, the result of a ground-up restoration that wrapped in the Spring of 2014. That clean body, which entered its detailed rebuild as a largely rust-free, 44K-mile short bed, exhibits top-notch metalwork. And best of all, those panels remain just as GM designed them, with nothing frenched, filled or altered in any major way.

That said, there are some cool details that really make this pickup pop. The baubles begin with a stainless-trimmed grille, which hangs a famous red bowtie between bright halogen headlights, a mirrored bumper and factory parking lamps. Behind that grille, a “C H E V R O L E T” branded hood leads the eye to tinted glass that's centered between polished wipers, painted drip rails and straight Custom frames. At the sides of that glass, the truck's stainless-trimmed profile seats small mirrors, traditional door handles and clean “Custom” badging above red bowties, requisite reflectors and a simple fuel filler. And at the back of that profile, a clean bed plants filled stake pockets in front of a “C H E V R O L E T” branded tailgate, factory taillights and a second mirrored bumper.

ENGINE

Pop the hood and you'll find a spry, 350 cubic inch Chevrolet small block that's been polished, rebuilt and fitted with a .030 overbore. Revs are created when an attractive, bowtie-capped air cleaner floats wind in to an Edelbrock Performer RPM intake, by way of a coated Edelbrock carburetor. At the perimeter of that intake, Chevrolet-stamped valve covers hang a polished breather over iron Summit Racing heads that feature 2.02-inch intake valves and 1.60-inch exhaust valves. Behind that breather, an aftermarket HEI distributor shoots spark through loomed MSD Street Fire plug wires. That distributor tops a tough Lunati cam, which vibrates coated Hedman Hedders. At the front of those tubes, traditional V-belts spin a polished alternator, a polished AC compressor and modern power steering. And at the front of those ancillaries, an Optima gel cell battery joins a 4-core radiator to provide reliability and longevity. Thanks to choice contrasting of painted and polished surfaces, the iron mill looks decidedly fresh in front of the truck's smoothed firewall. And details, like a chrome brake booster, a polished oil pan, braided fluid lines and a quality Mr. Gasket fuel regulator, look good and function great!

DRIVETRAIN/SUSPENSION

Bottom-side, this C10 features a host of noteworthy upgrades. Everything starts with a smoothed factory chassis that was coated in 2-stage during the truck's frame-off restoration. Behind the sweet engine, a proven Turbo-Hydramatic 350 3-speed makes excellent use of a 2,400 RPM Hughes stall converter. That fully sorted drivetrain rides a smoothed and painted suspension that fronts 4-inch drop springs with 1-inch lowering springs and 2.5-inch drop spindles. Stops are provided by a traditional combination of power-assisted drums and power-assisted calipers. Modern power steering provides good feel and great performance. Spent gases float from the aforementioned headers to throaty turbo mufflers. Power meets the pavement through polished Billet Specialties wheels, which spin 235/45R18 Goodyear Eagle LS2s in front of 275/40R20 Yokohama S.drives. And everything, from this Chevy's polished transmission pan to its 12-bolt axle, 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 an embossed vinyl bench that's both firm and broad. In front of that seat, a padded and painted dash centers modern Pioneer audio above Vintage Air climate control. Steering is channeled through a color-keyed Chevrolet Rally Wheel, which laps a tilting Flaming River column. Below that wheel, stain-free carpet highlights Pioneer kick speakers and stainless-trimmed foot pedals. And above that carpet, bowtie-branded door panels found traditional handles in front of small armrests.
