1966 Chevrolet C10 Pickup 350ci V8 Truck Motor


Description


Trim pieces are in nice shape; not oxidized at all, but the mid-line trim does have a few little dings. Paint is B-level. Cleans up nicely with a deep color and great shine, but upon close inspection there are a couple little spots where we can see tape lines (see white mid-line stripe under trim piece). While the truck is now red, the trim tag tells us that the original color was turquoise (RPO 540). Bed is in great shape, with no rust, damage, or significant scuffs. Wheels are in good shape, but the tires are older and should be replaced. Not flat-spotted, but there is some visible dry rot on the fronts. Glass and light lenses are clear and crack-free. Front and rear bumpers are in good shape, with minimal oxidation and no noteworthy damage. Weatherstripping is in very decent shape, not dry rotted. Windshield wipers have been removed but will come with the truck.

Silver and red two-tone vinyl bench seat is in great shape and complements the exterior well. No tears, burst seams, significant scuffs, etc. Dash is very nice and the gauges are all functional. Odometer reads 43,734 miles; true mileage is unknown. Black carpeting is pretty clean, with no major fraying or discoloring. No floormats. Blaupunkt radio is of course not original, and is not functional. Fan and heat are good. No air conditioning, no power steering, and roll-up windows….a proper classic pickup.

There is evidence of prior rust repair – the front cab floor supports have been replaced and the new pieces still show their stickers. The truck starts right up, holds a nice steady idle, pulls hard and with no stuttering or hesitation, brakes straight and effectively, and sounds great. Front brakes are grabby at parking lot speeds, good when on-road. We've changed the oil/filter, fixed some wonky trans linkage, and begun to add miles. With a fresh set of tires this will make a sweet, sweet driver.
