Groovy 1970 Chevrolet C10 Pickup is Restored & Ready to Go
Classic pickup an example of restoration done period-correct, and perfectly right.
We love a clean, cool pickup, no matter what year it came off the line. Classic car and truck owners know that trying to maintain your vehicle and the vehicle’s aesthetic integrity can be a balancing act. Some upgrades might be cheaper, but not necessarily fit the period or style of your rig. But this beautifully restored 1970 Chevy C10 pickup hits all the right notes in its upgrades.
In 2015 the truck underwent a full frame-off restoration. Changes were made to the body, interior, and powerplant. The choice of green and white was a great call. After all, they do say that people who choose green are geniuses.
The original engine was swapped out for a 5.0L V8, which is mated to a floor-shifted 3-speed manual transmission.
Having lived all of its life in California, the truck has no rust. The body is cherry.
Also updated in 2015 was the interior. The dashboard face was refinished, and there is new new carpeting, a new dash pad, and new windshield.
The white-painted steel wheels feature sharp chrome hubcaps and are mounted with Futura GLS Super Sport tires.
This truck is in it for the long haul. It has only 17k miles on the odometer, and is currently available at auction at Bring a Trailer.
