For Sale: 1972 Chevrolet C10 Pickup
Super Cheyenne. Rare. Magazine Hotchkis Built
AKA: SLEEPING BEAUTY
THIS IS AN ORIGINAL BLACK 1972 CHEVROLET C-10 SUPER CHEYENNE PICKUP WITH THE MATCHING NUMBERS 402 ENGINE AND AIR CONDITIONING. THE BUILD DESIGN WAS PLANNED BY PCH RODS AND THE OWNER WHO WERE BOTH RACE CAR DRIVERS. THE PLAN WAS TO KEEP ITS ORIGNALITY WITH MODERN UPGRADES TO THE WHEELS, SUSPENSION AND BRAKES SO IT WOULD COMPETE WITH NEWER VEHCILES ON THE ROAD!
Hotchkis Sport Suspension Company built and tested. This truck stopped from 60-0 in 117 feet which was six feet quicker than a 2004 Ford Lighting and eight feet quicker than a 2004 Dodge Ram SRT-10!
Featured in multiple issues of Classic Truck Trends magazine!
True Autocross and Pro Touring Truck with track time to prove it!
This truck was a very extensive restoration that was completed in 2011. This truck would cost over $100,000 to build if you had to duplicate it!
ONLY 250 MILES ON THE COMPLETE RESTORATION!
The body is extremely straight with excellent gaps. The black paint is truly stunning and is show quality. Let me be clear, this is a high level restoration and one of the best C-10’s I’ve ever seen!
Everything on the exterior has been restored or replaced including such items as all the glass (one piece rear tinted glass is installed and the sliding rear glass is included), all the window trim, mirrors, side moldings, lights, emblems and wood trim. The front and rear bumpers and front grille were powder coated gloss black and look SWEET!
The truck sits perfectly on high end custom built Niche black 19” wheels that are 19x10 on the front and 19x20 on the rear. These wheels were powder coated with gloss black hoops and flat black insets and then custom Niche caps were made for each wheel. It has four brand new Nitto Invo tires that are 285/35/19 on the front and 325/30/19 on the rear!
The black exterior is complimented with a brand new black interior with red hounds- tooth and wood trim. This interior is very cool because it retains most of its originality with a hint of customization!
Everything in the interior has been restored or replaced including such items as the headliner, dash, factory gauges, door panels, seat foam and upholstery, tilt steering column, temperature controls and GM radio. I added Billet Specialties Formula 14” black steering wheel that was almost $700 with all the pieces and column adaptor!
It has factory air conditioning that is in great working order. Everything under the hood including the compressor and hoses are brand new not rebuilt!
The entire truck wiring has been replaced with a new stock wiring kit from front to back!
The truck bed is a brand new bed with the original tail gate. The newly finished wood floor with stainless stripes looks beautiful!
The original gas filler area was filled in for a smooth look and the gas tank was removed from the rear seat and placed underneath the bed. A custom filler was added to the bed. A completely polished stainless steel fuel cell was installed under the bed with all new gas lines!
The engine compartment is highly detailed and home to the original matching numbers 402 V8!
The engine was professionally rebuilt and runs absolutely amazing. It starts instantly and purrs like a kitten. The engine compartment has recently been updated with show panels, air cleaner, polished valve covers, power coated hood hinges, Wilwood master cylinder and many bolts were changed to polished button heads!
The engine breathes through a complete custom exhaust system. Magna Flow exhaust built a complete stainless steel exhaust system from exhaust manifolds to exhaust tips. It includes mandrel bends and custom made x-pipe system and cross member that allows the exhaust to go through the frame versus under the frame for a clean and safe clearance system!
The engine is coupled with a completely rebuilt turbo 400 transmission and 12- bolt rear end!
The entire suspension system on this truck was done by Hotchkis themselves. The build was documented in multiple magazines. It’s equipped with Hotchkis Sports Suspension front and back with a full TVS kit. The truck has 2” CPP drop spindles on the front with Hotchkis coil springs front and back. It was lowered 6”in the front and rear. QA1 polished adjustable shocks were remounted on all 4 corners. This truck was tested on a track by Hotchkis and handled amazing!
The braking system was also professionally installed and includes Wilwood disc brakes at all four corners. It has 14” rotors on the front with 6 piston calipers and 12” rotors on the back with 4 piston calipers. It also has all new brakes lines and the proportioning valve was installed on the right side in the frame near the rear wheel!

“As my website indicates I’ve collected and sold many beautiful classic pickups privately and at Barrett Jackson. A few of them have sold in the $70 and $80 thousand price range. I’ve also witnessed many that have also sold in that price range or more. With that being said, this 1972 Chevrolet C-10 Super Cheyenne is one of the best I’ve seen. It’s unique for multiple reasons. The truck was born a real black Super Cheyenne and it retains the original 402 V8 engine. It was completely restored with no expense spared. The entire suspension and braking system was built and tested by Hotchkis which was documented in multiple magazines. To put the icing on the cake, the truck just works with its striking good looks. This truck is the perfect combination of old and new. It looks, runs and drives AMAZING! I would challenge anyone to find a comparable truck for less. My plans are to consign it to the upcoming Barrett Jackson auto auction being held in Las Vegas at the end of September. All consignments are placed in mid-August so if you’re interested please call. Get it before someone else does!”
