1971 Chevrolet C-10 Custom

Wonderfully preserved truck that has aged gracefully with gentle use.


This 1971 Chevrolet C10 is a "Custom" model, with power steering, power brakes, cowl vents, and heavy duty front/rear suspension.  The exterior wears what appears to be mostly original paint in the factory code "511" Ochre color.  Excellent gloss.  Minor chips and touchups due to age.  Sheetmetal is very straight.  The rocker panels and cab corners have been replaced with new panels that were welded in.  The truck bed is in remarkable original condition showing only minor scuffing and scratching on the original bed floor.  Very good condition brightwork.  New chrome front and rear bumpers.  Aftermarket trailer hitch receiver.    

​Factory front disc brakes were standard in 1971.  New master cylinder.  The front brakes have been maintained with new pads and replacement rotors.  The rear drum brakes have new lines, new brake hoses, new shoes and replacement wheel cylinders.

The interior sports mostly original paint with black accent panels.  New windshield for a crystal clear view.  The other glass is in excellent condition.  The original GM rubber floor mat is in fantastic shape showing very little wear.   New dash pad and vinyl seat cover.  Full factory gauges are all functioning.  Factory AM radio.  Heater works great.  The factory jack is in its proper place behind the seat.  New fuel tank and sending unit.


The engine runs excellent.  Original numbers matching block 307ci V8 has had a top end rebuild.  Upgraded to 194 heads, these heads flow significantly better than stock.  New performance camshaft and lifters.  New Dual exhaust from factory manifolds, through Flowmaster mufflers, into chrome tips. Brand new 235/70R15  tires on GM rally wheels with excellent trim rings and baby moon style hubcaps.  GM 12-bolt rear axle.  Rebuilt turbo 350 automatic transmission.  Complete chassis grease service just completed.
