1979 Chevrolet C-10 overview
Beautiful truck.This is a truck that could be atrue daily driver! The 700r4 overdrive transmission and Fitech fuel injection make this a great driving combination.
Paint and body:
New base coat clear coat paint that has been sanded and buffed down to a very nice finish. Door jambs were cleaned and painted to match also!
New side body molding and new side mirrors.
The inside of the bed is scratched, but is just general use. It is not beat to death and certainly has no rust.
Is completely new. New door panels painted to match. New headliner and all of the surrounding plastic pieces were painted to match. The dash is original but was just covered in the same material as the seat.Factory seat was just recovered and looks and feels amazing. New carpet. When I removed the old carpet, there wasabsolutely no trace of rust anywhereon the floors. What you see in the picture is just the old glue. All new window and complete door weather stripping - both on the cab as well as deep down into the door where the glass rolls up and down. New dash face on both sides of the dash (stainless pieces).
Engine / Mechanical
350 small block. Doesn't leak or burn any oil. Stock hydraulic camshaft. New GM Vortec Heads. New Aluminum vortec intake manifold. New Fitech 3003 TBI Fuel injection and fuel commander. Rebuilt Alternator. New Starter. New HEI distributor as well as spark plugs and plug wires. New battery. Rebuilt 700r4 transmission. Engine sounds great with dual exhaust with an "H" pipe. New radiator. This truck can sit in 110 degree bumper to bumper traffic and not get hot. Lowered with a 6"inch flip kit in the rear including a C-notched frame. Front was completed by 3 inch front drop spindles and 2" lowered springs. I also installed new inner fenders.
Dual 16 gallon fuel tanks that both work properly. Yes, the switch on the dash toggles between the tanks.
Drives straight down the road with no wandering or pulling. The steering is very tight due to installing a new CPP performance steering box, new tie rod ends, and a new power steering pump.
New Air conditioning system - I just put on a new compressor, new condenser, new dryer, new blower motorand new lines - blows hard and is very cold, even in Arizona!
Wheel & Tires
Ridler Torque Thrust style 695 20x8.5 front with 255/40 and 20x10 with 295/40 (New 20" tires)
Please call me if you would like to discuss any other details of this truck. Odometer shows 71k, but I am pretty sure it is really 171k.
Please notice that this is not your everyday run of the mill truck that has been given a once over. This is a very nice, clean, rust free, truck that has had someseriousmoney spent to make it look as nice as it does. I do have some other pictures of the underside where rust typically forms on these trucks that I could not upload due to only being able to load 24 pictures. I can assure you there is no rust anywhere - cab corners, door bottoms, sill plates, floor, fender bottoms. I can send more pictures of whatever areas you want to see or are concerned about. Just give me a call and we can talk. Also, I would not hesitate to drive this truck across the desert tomorrow, so if you are interested in flying in, I can meet you at the Phoenix airport and you can take it home from there. No disappointments!!
