1970 Chevrolet C10 Pickup

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.
