Mellow Yellow Custom C10 Ready to Light Up the Block

1964 Chevrolet C10

Draped in purple flames, custom C10 has the coolest deep brown wood bed around.

There’s nothing like a custom Chevy truck, whether it’s jacked-up and ready for the mud, or slammed low for cruising the main street. If it happens to be a classic Chevy that receives the custom touches, that’s even cooler.

We found such an example in a 1964 C10 set to hit the auction block at Barrett-Jackson’s first auction of the new year, set for Scottsdale, Arizona, January 12 through 20.

This hot rod C10 is a frame-off restoration rocking a yellow body with a white top, and accented with plenty of chrome and purple flames stretching from the front to the rear fender.

Any self-respecting hot rod C10 needs a proper Chevy engine, right? This one has a 350 V8 crate motor linked to a four-speed automatic for laying down the rubber in a smokey burnout.

Inside the C10, the yellow cab greets you with a brown leather bench for you and two of your special friends. The faux-wood door panels and real wood steering wheel pull it all together, too.

And of course, hot rod C10s gotta have a real wood bed like the deep, rich, dark wood bed of this custom Chevy. The chrome braces are a lovely touch, too.

We wish we could take this awesome C10 out to the strip for a few quarter-mile passes. We think you would, too.

Since launching her professional writing career nearly a decade ago as a fashion blogger, Cameron Aubernon has written for a handful of online and print publications on a wide variety of subjects, including expat issues, fashion, music, and, of course, the automotive industry. The automotive expert was even the editor-in-chief of a popular online lifestyle publication, where she reviewed luxury cars and interviewed fellow automotive enthusiasts.

A graduate of The Evergreen State College Class of 2005 with a bachelor's in liberal arts, Aubernon took a left turn from fashion writing into the automotive realm when she asked a fellow writer via Facebook if she could write for their site. Following an internship, stints with a couple of hyper-local online publications, and a move to Seattle, she made her then-biggest impact with The Truth About Cars, writing full-time for the publication from 2013 to 2015.

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.

Aubernon’s expert knowledge of all things Ford trucks has also made her a mainstay as one of the most prolific writers on Ford Truck Enthusiasts and F-150 Online.
