1969 Chevrolet C10 Cheyenne Additional Info:

Take some time to check out all the custom details of this 1969 Chevrolet C10 Cheyenne. But don't linger too long, because with the nice two-tone paint, custom interior, and fuel-injected big block power, this truck will be hauling out soon.
Dare we call this color Hugger Orange? It certainly looks the part of one of Chevy's famous muscle cars with it bold and bright presentation. And this looks particularly nice because there was an investment in a quality restoration. The consignor is the owner of a hot rod shop, and so no expense was spared during the frame-off restoration 2015. That's why the panels are laser-straight and the iconic orange looks so good. Quite frankly, this truck deserves to be in the same league as Chevy's big muscle machines. This aggressive attitude is highlighted even further by custom elements like the lowered suspension, gas filler moved to a flush mount in the bed, and 18-inch US Mags alloy wheels. But at its heart, this C10 never loses its vintage pickup sensibilities. You see it in areas like the white that gives this a classic a two-tone flair. And because this is an upper-level Cheyenne, it comes with some extra body chrome, including the upper and lower body side accents. The straightness of these pieces is just another reminder of how the investment in this one goes down to the details. So to do a build like this again could easily cost you six figures.
You are reminded this is a muscle truck from the moment you open the door. The houndstooth fabric seat inserts and the three-spoke sports steering wheel make this '69 C10 feel like a '69 Camaro. They look fantastic against the black and orange interior. The investment in the interior was all about merging the worlds of vintage and new. You see it on the door panels where the classic Cheyenne's embossed panels meet new billet handles. Behind that is modern Dynamat insulation for the best in comfort. The dash has a cool classic appearance, but if you look closely, you can spot some great upgrades. For example, that retro-style radio is really a AM/FM digital tuner with an iPod hookup. And the heat/defrost sliders are the gateway to a modern R134a air conditioning system.
While there are plenty of interesting custom components on the interior and exterior that will draw a crowd, we're willing to bet it's what's under the hood that really brings them all to you. Rarely do you find an engine bay this tidy with the smooth firewall and fender walls. All of this funnels your attention to the 454 cubic-inch LS7 big block. Yes, this is the famous racer-quality big block crate motor GM offered in the 80s. This was rebuilt less than 1,800 miles ago for road performance, and includes forged pistons, Comp Cams 11-604-5 solid lift camshaft, Crane roller rockers, Comp Cams Hi-Tech pushrods, multi-angle valve job, Moroso high volume oil pump, Dart single plane intake, and a Holley Terminator fuel injection w/with timing control. Plus, long tube headers add even more power as they also contribute to the thunder of the X-pipe dual exhaust. Making sure all that huge power reliably gets to the ground is a TCI 700R4 four-speed automatic transmission that's rated for 700 hp. This power package feels great on the road thanks to power steering and the trailing arm rear suspension that made these C10s famously superior riders. Add in the Wilwood four-wheel disc brake upgrade and seriously sticky Pirelli P-Zero tires, and this hauler is a true handler.
Complete with build receipts, it's the C10 that leaves you wanting for nothing, and it leaves everyone else in your wake. Call now!
