Chevrolet introduced their first pickups in 1924 and, from 1960 all the way to 1999, Chevy C-Series trucks were the choice of farmers, ranchers, and tradesmen making these pickups an integral part of the bottom line, with Detroit’s own Bob Seger belting out “Like a Rock” in thousands of Chevy truck commercials. For 1967, designers started with a clean slate and developed a sleek new integrated design for Chevrolet. The bold creases on the previous truck were replaced by rounded corners and gentle transitions from one smooth panel to the next and, by the '70s, many were sold with the stylish new eggcrate grille that the truck presented here still wears today. By utilizing rear coil springs in the two-wheel drive C10 trucks, Chevy trucks earned their reputation for a car-like ride over rough terrain.
As the trucks became gradually more sophisticated, the market responded, and pickups became as prominent on our roadways as passenger cars. The public embraced their good looks and basic utility, and pickup trucks were not just for hauling and farm work ever again. By the '70s, upscale trucks with short beds were hot sellers, and Detroit responded with higher trim levels, more comfort features, and Chevrolet added safety features like lap belts and the new front disc brakes in 1971.
Offered here is an excellent build of a custom truck in the form of a 1971 Chevrolet Cheyenne C10 that has been expertly modified for street duty. Finished in brilliant red, this truck carries a sleek profile that’s further enhanced by a color-keyed hard-shell cover over the bed. A custom set of Coys C5 rims mounted on low profile tires gives it just the right performance look and the hood carries a black center line stripe that gives an indication of the power beneath, a big-block 454 cubic-inch V-8. The craftsmanship of this build is nicely represented and an engine compartment that’s clean and well-sorted. Power is routed through an automatic transmission and the sound through its dual exhaust is pure Chevy performance. A custom two-tone interior in red and black features excellent craftsmanship with bucket seats and a center console; the dashboard carries an upgraded sound system, custom steering wheel and control pedals. Brute power and stunning good looks all come together in this tastefully modified Cheyenne pickup from Chevrolet.
The vintage trucks from this era are highly desirable and are sure to continue to appreciate as the good ones become more and more rare. Presented here is your chance to acquire a stellar pickup, that will bring joy for years to come.
