If you were a Cy Young award winning pitcher, what would you drive? Well, this 1967 Chevrolet C10 was good enough for Johan Santana. And when you see the slick paint, V8 power, and custom A/C interior, you’ll realize this is quite nice for you, too.
More than just its celebrity past, this Chevy has some serious appeal. Black is an easy color to love, but it can only be applied to the best vehicles, because no imperfections can hide from it. It’s even tougher for a pickup because they’ve typically spent part of their life as a workhorse. So, it’s worth taking a few moments to enjoy how amazing this shade of midnight looks on this Chevy truck. Plus, the stepside beds were originally built for a functional purpose, but over the years they’ve become a highly desired stylized touch. This dark paint also helps to highlight the chrome elements in the wide grille, front bumper, door mirrors, and even the slats in the truck bed. Of course, the biggest piece of brightwork on this truck is the new set of large 20-inch American Racing Torq Thrust alloys. This is part of a custom package that includes the more aggressive hood and custom rear roll pant that all come together to give this standout pickup a truly memorable appearance.
Inside, the custom work continues, but here it’s all about the comfort. Tan looks amazing against the black exterior paint, especially when there is custom stitching on the door panels and seat. And speaking of the seat, the fresh tweed bench is all-day comfortable for up to three people. But even if it’s just you out for a cruise, this Chevy provides. You have a grippy wood and chrome Grant GT sports steering wheel, and beyond that is a clear view to the factory gauges. Plus, you have a full set of AutoMeter auxiliary readouts to keep you fully informed. And while this comfy pickup has ice cold modern R134a air conditioning, we also know you’re going to love getting your breeze the old-school way. After all, there’s just something timeless about opening the vent windows and sliding the rear glass to let the wind waft through the cab.
You’ll love opening the hood at car shows. After all the bold block and all those shiny components radiate a powerful presence from within the dark engine bay. This one even has Chevrolet’s Heartbeat motto on the air topper. And as cool as it is to have a period-correct 327 cubic-inch V8 under the hood, you can also tell by the condition of the brake booster and new A/C compressor there has been all the right investments to keep this custom a comfortable cruiser. Plus, the four-barrel carburetor and headers means this V8 has the power and extra growl you’ll love. A three-speed automatic transmission shifts without hesitation, and the trailing arm rear suspension makes these Chevys sought after for their smooth-riding nature. Combine all that with power steering, front disc brakes, and the modern grip of new Nitto tires, and this street machine is also a comfortable Sunday driver.
An easy cruising and all-around beautiful package that will always have a story to tell – this C10 is exactly what you want in a classic. So don’t miss out, call today!
