Stone Cold Steve Austin’s Classic Chevy Truck is Stunning
After acquiring antique C10 earlier this year, wrestling legend had 1966 gem made into a winner worthy of a Championship Belt.
When “Stunning” Steve Austin was one of the baddest “sumbiches” in the WCW and WWF, he was frequently depicted driving pickups, so it comes as little surprise that “Stone Cold” owns a pretty sweet 1966 Chevy C10. He acquired the truck earlier this year in pretty good shape, but it needed some love after sitting for a few years. Since then, Austin has shined up the exterior and performed some minor maintenance himself, before sending the truck to a shop for a handful of upgrades.
Along the way, he has offered followers on Instagram and Twitter a look at the truck at each step of the process, with the newest pictures showing a classic Chevy pickup that is ready to hit the road in route to Cars and Coffee.
Back in February 11, Austin posted the pictures below of his new-to-him 1966 Chevrolet C10 pickup. When he first introduced it to his 3.3-million Instagram followers, he simply said “New addition to the Austin family. 1966 #chevy #c10 #truck.” As you can see, the first two pictures shared showed the front end and the passenger’s side.
Less than a month later, on March 6, Austin shared a few more pictures of the antique Chevy pickup in the rain, along with the first shot of the interior with the unique dash board.
“Raining cats and dogs in Nevada. But the 1966 C10 is getting cleaned up today. The truck has been sitting for a few years. Gonna change belts, hoses, fluids, re-jet carb, and get lights, blinkers, and horn operational. Get some new tires and go through brakes. Front dash is from a 1959 Impala.”
Two days later, Stone Cold shared two more pictures of the truck, coining it “Ol’ Blue”. In these pictures (at the top of this piece), the chrome front bumper has been shined up, removing the blemishes seen in the first pictures, while the rest of the truck was looking like it had been well-detailed.
Off to the Shop
On March 30, Austin shared a picture of his 1966 Chevy loaded onto a trailer, explaining that it was headed off for some work. He also provided a nice plug for his shipper.
“Getting some work done on ‘Ol Blue. Thanks to Cliff @cliffyc_nv for getting my truck transported. Cliff handles all my transport needs and is reliable as they come. He is back and forth to the Reno-Los Angeles area on a frequent basis, and also up and down the East Coast a lot. If you got it, Cliff can transport it. AND THAT’S THE BOTTOM LINE.”
Finally, this past weekend, Austin shared the most recent pictures of his classic C10, announcing that Ol’ Blue was back from the shop, looking and running better than ever. These newest pictures also show the engine, which looks to be a fairly mild small block with an aluminum intake manifold and a set of headers.
“The return of ‘OL BLUE!
Got some work done on ‘Ol Blue by @natesprecision in Sparks, NV. Nate got me tuned up, wired up, dialed in, and leveled out. Now street legal and running like a champ. Big thanks to @cliffyc_nv at MENACE MOTORTRANSPORT from Reno, NV. If you got it-he can haul it. Bottom line. ‘Ol Blue video coming soon.”
That video isn’t available yet, but we are looking forward to seeing Stone Cold Steve Austin’s classic Chevy C10 in action.
