Vehicle Story

This 1972 Chevrolet C10 2WD fleetside shortbed is a recently frame-up restored pickup in Viper Blue Metallic that rides on a lowered coil springs suspension with 20” Weld Racing chrome wheels wrapped in Cooper Discoverer tires. The exterior features shaved door handles with remote door poppers, a steel cowl hood, filled roof seams, a billet grille, deleted side marker lights, and more. Under the hood, the built General Motors 350ci V8 benefits from an Edelbrock manifold and Holley carburetor and sends power to the rear through a TH350 3-speed automatic transmission. Handling is improved by way of power steering and power 4-wheel disc brakes, and interior amenities include a Custom Autosound retro-look stereo, new OEM carpeting, and a late-model black leather interior. This second-generation C/K-Series pickup is now offered with a clear Colorado title in the seller’s name.

The second-generation C10 debuted in 1967 under the Action Line name, and the 1971 model year brought a redesigned front fascia. This example from the final model year of that generation recently underwent a frame-up restoration and was resprayed in Viper Blue Metallic with complementing silver accents on the hood, fenders, and tailgate. The exterior was given custom treatment including a billet grille, shaved door handles, a steel cowl hood, filled roof seams, deleted side marker lights, a rear roll pan, and more. A dual-outlet performance exhaust system is installed at the rear, and the cargo area has been lined with a spray-in bedliner material.

Chrome 20” by 9” Weld Racing wheels are mounted to Cooper Discoverer tires on all four corners. The lowered suspension was recently aligned and lubricated, and braking is handled by four-wheel discs and cross-drilled rotors from Classic Performance Parts (CPP).

Seating is provided by high-back black leather buckets that were sourced from a late-model Volkswagen, color-matched to the lap belts, door panels, dash pad, and replacement OEM style carpeting. An OEM C10 center console between the seats doubles as an armrest with dual cup holders. The metal portions of the cabin are painted body color, and amenities include a Grant leather-wrapped steering wheel, a Custom Autosound retro-look stereo, and smoked side and rear windows that were refurbished with replacement gaskets, hardware, and trim.

Instrumentation is held within a black bezel containing a 100-mph speedometer and auxiliary gauges for voltage, coolant temperature, fuel level, and oil pressure. The five-digit mechanical odometer reads approximately 71k miles, though true mileage is unknown. Per the seller, the truck has been completely rewired using a C10-specific Painless wiring kit.

The 350ci V8 features a gear-driven timing setup, an Edelbrock intake manifold topped with a Holley 4V carburetor, and ceramic-coated Hooker headers. Power is directed to the rear wheels via a TH350 3-speed automatic transmission, connected to an aluminum driveshaft and a 3.73-geared, 12-bolt GM rear end with limited slip.

The underside shows a gloss black powder-coated frame. The cab-mounted fuel tank was eliminated in favor of an aftermarket tank mounted under the rear section of the bed. Photos showing the painted and detailed underside are available in the gallery and two videos are available for viewing below.

As we enter the final stretch on this auction, I just want to thank everyone for your bids and encourage you to keep them coming! This C10 makes no excuses and will make the lucky buyer very happy. It is ready to enjoy. It is extensively restored and modified to the level of short bed C10's you routinely see bringing $45k and more at the large live auctions, but my reserve is significantly less. I am available if you have any last minute questions about the truck (303) 905-5471 and will gladly help with shipping arrangements. Good luck everyone!

JHNorth - I’m getting the impression you are simply trying to keep the bids low on my C10. You keep expressing your dislike for the gear drive whine it makes, yet you have bid on the it 4 times. If someone does not like the gear drive they can replace it with a timing chain setup in an afternoon and I’m sure you know that. I would keep it the way it is. This C10 is an amazing build by a craftsman who obviously was meticulous and skilled. It has less than 100 miles on it since completion and is nearly as nice underneath as it is on top. I received some wonderful compliments on it at a local Truckfest show recently. Bid with confidence and ask yourself if you could build this truck to this level including the value of your labor for the price it can be bought for. Thank you!

Not sure why someone would put a gear drive on a C10 that wasn't just overly hotrodded out that the motor would drown out the whine sound? Personally I like to hear the sound of a classic car engine and rarely turn the stereo up unless for long cruises.

I don’t really notice the gear drive much at cruising or highway speed anymore than cars I’ve owned with performance exhaust, especially when the windows are rolled up. The whine of the gear drive is more audible at idle and to about 25 mph than it is beyond that. Personally, I enjoy the sound it makes and the stereo easily overtakes that sound in my opinion.

That whine from the truck would get awfully old very quickly.

Thank you for the question. The whine you heard is from the gear drive timing system on the engine , not the transmission. That is a normal characteristic of those It replaces the typical timing chain setup. At a recent car show, a few people asked if it has a supercharger due to that sound. It does attract some attention.

is that the transmission making that god awful noise when the truck is being driven it is almost drowning out the sound of the exhaust.
