First-gen C10 stepside kept indoors, mostly in original condition, still has original inline-six.

Our beloved Chevy trucks have come a long way over the past several decades, especially during the C/K era. From 1960 through 2000, the C/K trucks developed the reputation all Chevy trucks continue to have today: tough, reliable, dependable, and innovative.

Thus, it makes us happy when we happy one a well-cared C/K like this first-gen C10 stepside on ClassicCars.com, residing in the small Atlanta suburb of Waleska, Georgia.

The shortbed C10, also listed on Craigslist, comes with its original inline-six (which is either a 230 or 236, depending on the ad) and three-speed manual. The sellers says they’ve done their best to keep it as original as they could, and it shows.

Out back, the C10’s stepside short bed houses a loading floor of wood slats riveted into place, looking no worse for wear. The interior is in great shape, as well.

The C10 has been kept indoors, all but keeping rust down to a minimum. Georgia may have quite a few peaches, but this dark cherry Chevy is the fruit we crave the most.

Currently, the highly-regarded automotive journalist is a frequent contributor to the high-traffic Internet Brands Auto Group websites Rennlist, Club Lexus, LS1Tech and Mustang Forums, among others.
