Nicknamed ‘Square Body’ by the public, the third generation of Chevrolet’s iconic C10 Pick-Up was introduced for the 1973 model-year. A capable workhorse that also appealed as a recreational vehicle, it remained in production for eighteen years.

Extensively cosmetically and mechanically customised, this striking Chevy C10 Pick-Up belonged to its previous keeper for ten years. Heavily involved in the transformation, he had the rear tailgate formed and sucked-in, the rear bumper tucked and the taillights relocated. Professionally painted in White over Teal, the C10 received a brand-new Black interior including the dashboard, door panels, bench seat and carpets. A white gauge pack, chrome GT steering wheel and chrome fire extinguisher provide some welcome contrast and the Pick-Up also boasts a rubber bed mat, kill switch, AM/FM radio, power steering, power brakes, steering wheel tilt mechanism and Positraction rear end. Sourced from a 1997 Chevrolet 1500, the 350 cu in (5.7 litre) V8 sports an Edelbrock intake and carburettor, Vortec heads and long tube headers. It is allied to an automatic gearbox which has covered c.5,000 miles since being overhauled. The restoration work was chronicled in an accompanying booklet. Imported by the vendor in January 2020, this attention-grabbing Chevy is kept on trickle charge in a dry barn and comes with a valid MOT certificate.
