RED/BLACK & WHITE HOUNDSTOOTH
Lot #654 - Benefits from a recent frame-off restoration which restored the truck to OEM specifications. Fresh red and white paint offers a period-correct look sure to turn heads. The truck presents well with above average fit and finish all around. Combined with fresh badges, new chrome and clean stainless, this pickup shows well from all angles. The bed is capped off by chrome bed rails that look great against the bright red paint. Inside the pickup, the "muscle truck" theme is continued by a hounds tooth interior reminiscent of those found in certain first generation Camaros. The stylish fabric is paired with red door panels and a red steel dash for a standout look. In front of the driver, factory instrumentation, a bowtie-branded stereo and a tilt column round out the amenities. Lift the hood and one of Chevrolet's most venerable powerplants comes into view, the 350cid V8. Professionally rebuilt and dressed in Chevy Orange paint, the tried and true small block looks factory fresh thanks to its careful restoration. Behind the engine, a 3-speed automatic transmission takes care of shifts with confidence. Underneath the truck, clean floor pans serve as the backdrop for a simple rebuilt factory suspension. Most C10s, like this '71 model, received the smoother-riding coil spring trailing arm rear suspension. In addition to the improved ride quality, the truck also offers power steering and front disc brakes for driver comfort. At the corners, stock Rally wheels wrapped in new white letter tires complete the look.
