1972 Chevrolet C10 Fleetside 350 V8 from North America
Unbelievable for a pickup
Speedometer stopped working.
Headlights burnt out.
Mirror fell off due to defective aftermarket part.
Bought it in Michigan for $7,000 and appraised at 14,000. Truck will really move when you ask it to, and will leave a trail of smoke behind you. Original leather bucket seats are the most comfortable seats I've ever sat in before, pretty unique for being so old.
Fully restored with some engine upgrades, puts out about 350 hp.
Real eye-turner. People always start conversations at the pump. Gets about 10mpg, but is worth it.
It's the most awesome color I've ever seen on a truck--a dark blue from Dupont, one that you can seem to stare into, and see on and on.
Fairly loud, but healthy, exhaust note. Gurgles at idle, roars at throttle. I love this truck.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
