For Sale: 1972 Chevrolet C10 Pickup
Rotisserie Restoration. Many Upgrades. WOW!
STUNNING ROTISSERIE RESTORATION WITH ONLY 300 TEST MILES!
ORIGINAL CALIFORNIA TRUCK!
BEAUTIFUL COLOR COMBINATION WITH MANY UPGRADES INCLUDING AC!
It’s believed this truck has had 3 owners since 1972. The original owner started the restoration in 2007 and it went through two more owners since completion in 2014!
The exterior is very straight and the gaps are great. It’s believed that of the body panels are original including such items as the cab, doors, fenders, bed and tailgate. There was no reproduction sheet metal parts used!
This was a complete body off restoration as the photos below document. Many hours were spent getting the body as straight as possible. This truck has better gaps then when it left the factory!
The body was stripped, primed and painted on all sides which is a lot more work. This truck was born Hugger Orange and White so it was decided to keep the colors like the factory but add a twist to give it the “WOW” factor by painting it Competition Orange. This color has a bit more pop then Hugger Orange. The paint job is beautiful and ocean deep. It’s definitely worthy of calling show quality!
The truck has the large back window as part of the Custom Deluxe Package. This window was tinted for a smooth look. Everything on the exterior has been restored or replaced including such items as all the glass, rubber, stainless, grille, headlights, door handles, side mirrors, door wind brackets, wiper blades, antenna and chrome bumpers. All of the exterior lighting was upgraded with halogens for better night visibility. There are a few really cool features including polished marker bezels on all four corners and a rear cargo light that can be operated from inside the cab!
The truck sits perfectly on brand new Centerline polished wheels that are called “Tracer 2’s”. They are a one off wheel and the only two piece set that will be made. All Tracer 2’s are one piece. The wheels are wrapped with Nitto NT 421Q 245/35/20 on the front and 275/45/20 on the rear. They look great!
The interior is all brand new and complements the exterior perfectly. The entire inside of the truck was painted with the same care as the exterior which allows the exterior to flow into the interior and give it more beauty then it came with from the factory!
This truck originally came from the factory with air conditioning. The factory systems aren’t as efficient as the modern ones so a new aftermarket unit was installed including all parts needed. The new system works great!
Everything in the interior has been restored or replaced including such items as the black headliner with chrome trim, sun visors, door panels, dash pad, carpet with heat protection and bench seat was upholstered with classic hounds tooth. It has many upgrades including such items as a Billet Specialties polished steering wheel with CPP factory tilt column, new gauge bezel with updated gauges and all new wiring throughout including a polished 100 amp polished alternator. To finish off the interior of this truck it was necessary to bring it alive with music so a Custom Autosound AM/FM concours series USA-230 unit was installed in the dash. To maximize the new sound system custom kick panels with built in speakers were installed!
The bed has been rhino lined to extremely durable if it was used to carry anything such as a motorcycle. It also has a custom bed cover that snaps on and off for easy access!
The engine compartment is highly detailed and home to the rebuilt Chevrolet 350. This is believed to be the original engine but can’t be documented. The hood hinges are new and were powder coated gloss black which look stunning. To keep with a clean look a set of black anodized show panels were installed between the radiator and the grille to cover a/c hoes, front of radiator and wiring!
The engine was built to perform and several performance parts were added such as an Edelbrock performer polished intake and four barrel carburetor, MSD distributor and blaster coil. To dress up the engine several things were added such as new Chevrolet black valve covers, several polished billet brackets and pulleys, Spectre air cleaner, polished water neck, new radiator hoses, polished breather, radiator cap and ac compressor cover!
To keep the engine running cool under any conditions an aluminum radiator was built for this truck which was installed with a stainless radiator top cover placed across the top to give it a clean and detailed look!
The engine breathes through ceramic coated headers with a complete new custom Magna Flow exhaust system which sounds great!
The engine is coupled with a rebuilt turbo 350 transmission and 12-bolt rear end with 3.73 gears!
It has a CPP power steering box that replaced the original steering box along with new lines and power steering pump at engine. It also has new front steering arms and a-arm joints!
The undercarriage of this truck is also very detailed and has many upgrades. There are a few photos below showing the frame and drive train finished as a rolling unit. Every part of the frame was taken apart, cleaned, rebuilt and painted. It has new bushings and body mounts. This is a mirror quality undercarriage!
Some of the suspension and braking upgrades include all new front brakes that are all new disc setup with Wilwood calipers for excellent stopping power. The rear is a drum setup and everything is brand new. To assist with the brake system a new vacuum booster and Wilwood black coated master cylinder with new brake lines were added. The front and lower A-arms were rebuilt with bushings, grease fittings and 2” CPP drop spindles along with 4” CPP coil springs. CPP 6” drop coil springs replaced the stock coil springs to lower the back by 6”. Four new shocks were installed for improved ride comfort and sway control!

“If you’ve been searching for a beautiful 67-72 Chevrolet C-10 custom pickup that is show quality with tons of upgrades and priced under $50,000 the search is over. As my website indicates I’ve collected and sold many beautiful classic trucks and some have sold north of $75,000. This truck is a high end restoration of an original California truck and is absolutely stunning. The body is extremely straight, the gaps are tight and the paint is ocean deep. The color combination is sweet and the custom Centerline 20” wheels put the icing on the cake. The interior is all new with many upgrades including air conditioning. The engine compartment is highly detailed and so is the undercarriage. This truck was just completed in 2014 and only has a few hundred test miles. My good friend has driven it many times including to a Goodguys show and has commented many times on how great it runs and drives. Here’s an opportunity to purchase a new restoration for half of what it cost to build it. I would challenge anyone to find a comparable truck for less. Get it before someone else does!”
