In the paragraphs to follow we will give a brief description of the exterior, nterior, nd heartbeat of the Chevy, ut first we would like to tell you a little about us. I'm never too cocky to put absolutes on anything, ut I and several restoration experts agree that this truck is an untouched, riginal paint, urvivor. Takes a huge bunch of lean out of the corners!! You can count on us to have 70 to 80 cars at all times. We assume no responsibility for damages incurred after the vehicle leaves our possession. Check out the 60+ Pics and a 2 min video in listing. That's all original paint you see.
Looks like a Super Cheyenne to me! I've been fortunate to have the opportunity to care for this truck for the last two years and I personally took all of the photographs and video my sister helped with the videos. When you look at this pick up you will be astounded that the paint is 23 years old as it looks like it was painted last year. There are still a good bit of project vehicles out there, just have to stay away from the popular stuff. The seller was honest enough to include photos of the problem areas though. The truck starts easily after setting the choke and sits on high idle for a minute or so.
The drive train, glass, tires etc alone are worth the starting price. This wonderful pickup gets a ton of looks at local shows and cruise-ins and I also don't hesitate to drive it on longer, 0-90 mile round-trip cruises. The truck sat indoors, o the paint has absolutely incredible shine and depth. Typically, his wouldn't be that important with a C10, ut since this is a big block truck, went through the work to show photos to document the born-with items. Too many people have this illusion of what they want for their dream car. All the factory rally wheels are on it and all the center caps and beauty rings are there.
However, 've gone to great lengths to keep this truck as unrestored as possible, o you'll see paint missing on the engine block and the wheel wells aren't going to be dark satin black. I have links to videos of it running and driving if you would like to see them please message me for the links. The carb and tanks will need to be gone thru of course for it to run reliably. Next, e will take a look at the interior of the Super Cheyenne. The original intake, carburetor and valve covers where missing, so they as you can see are aftermarket.
Buyer is responsible for checking and ensuring vehicles safety before driving or operating. It is priced very reasonably and will sell this first time advertised. This one is a little crusty in appearance, but the more you look at it, the more you will want it. It was supposedly purchased by a certified Chevrolet dealer for his own use. This one needs more than what you might normally see in a truck that age.
If you've read this far, ou know how hard it is to find a documented, nrestored, ig block, heyenne Super. However, when I got it back to the shop I discovered that this truck appears to be an all original matching numbers truck. Why do so many people think they should be able to buy this truck for what it was worth in 1982? The seats have the Houndstooth inserts. The 402 option in the Cheyenne Super is extremely rare. It still had most of the original factory build sheet that was still in the spring of the back seat. Outfitted with a custom air cleaner, and a host of upgraded Edelbrock components that include its intake manifold, carb, fuel pump and water pump, the powerplant is in optimal form, idling very smoothly and producing just the right exhaust note out of its long tube headers.
Factory air, cargo light, power steering, power brakes fronts are disc , etc - this was the top of the line Chevy in 1972. If you haven't owned a classic car, lease remember that this isn't a 2012 Honda Civic. Yes, it has uncountable imperfections. Also notice throughout the photos that this original pickup has many original factory markings on the firewall, rake booster, lternator, prings, ie rod ends, tc! Our shop completed the engine and verified the numbers on the engine that it was the correct original motor to the truck. I knew these C-10s were hot, but I had no idea they could be worth so much! Dealer install was usually under dash. The shift lever to put this classic truck into 4-wheel drive mode is within comfortable reach just in front.
What is consistent with all owners over the years is the understanding that this truck wasn't just another C10. We purchased this truck from the son of the original owner as it shows on the Texas title. A collector worth their salt will only by 2-door vehicles making them more desirable, allegedly and drive up the price as the same car in a 4-door hardtop is priced more reasonable with the same attributes. I've owned dozens of cars over the years and have made many sight unseen deals many here on eBay to buy or sell cars across the country. Prices on these trucks continue to climb and you will have a difficult time finding a more original one than this for what you can buy this one for today.
This evolutionary period culminated in vehicles such as the 1972 C10 Short Bed Cheyenne Super pickup offered here. Another option was the two tone paint! It added a lot of trim and comfort items. It was topped off by a professional at that time. Please bid if you are serious. Could be cleaned up or if it were me, probably replace most of it. It would have been easy and still would if that's your style! It's a true survivor, ell cared-for pickup, ith what I believe is 100% original paint and just over 53,000 miles. Any claims or other communication regarding shipment of vehicles will be between you and the shipper, ot with the seller.
She also has a Tilt Steering Column, the Tachometer works, Upgraded Radio with kick panel speakers and a Borla Dual Exhaust. The fit of the bed to the cab is very good. Above, a new black headliner sits securely in place. I have eight vehicles in my collection today; three of them run and a 4th is nearing that stage. I explained above that the drivetrain is born-with, ut I haven't gone further with the truck. I love old cars and trucks I really do but all I can afford to do anymore is look at them, it has almost become impossible to have a classic anymore without having a six figure income. Because of its age and mileage, his vehicle is sold strictly as-is-as shown, ith no warranties expressed or implied.
