1965 Chevrolet C10 Pickup 307 cubic inch V8 Engine


Description


Finished in red over a grey interior, this is a sharp truck that never fails to turn heads. Slick paint over a straight body with excellent bumpers, grille, trim and glass. Excellent panel gaps and door fitment. No known rust issues with solid cab supports and corners. There are a few marks on the tailgate and lower door sills from normal use but no significant dents, dings, scratches or chips otherwise. The oak boards in the bed show very light patina on the finish but are still in good condition overall. American Racing alloy wheels are a nice update.

The interior presents well with a very nice original steering wheel, plus grey seat upholstery (with matching door panels) and black carpet. Dash has been updated with a full complement of modern gauges, which are all accurate and working.

Under the hood is a 307 cubic inch V8 mated to a Turbo-Hydramatic 400 automatic transmission. The engine was rebuilt approximately 5,000 miles ago and it breathes through a four-barrel Edelbrock carb and Headman headers. It starts easily, runs great, makes good power, and the transmission shifts smoothly. Thanks to coil springs at all four corners, a 1960s Chevrolet is certainly the best driving pickup of its era. With the V8, automatic transmission and power steering, this truck drives particularly well. Stops take some advance planning, though, because it's still running drum brakes with no power assist (although the truck stops straight and is definitely within the range of normal for drum brakes).
