1971 Chevy C10 Cheyenne – 1967 was the initial year that Chevrolet Motor Division and GM Truck and Bus Division agreed to split platform production. The former would make all light trucks, with GMCs essentially becoming rebadged Chevrolets, while GMC would build all larger trucks, supplying Chevy with rebadged units. As such, while the all-new 1967 GMC pickups shared the same chassis and sheet metal as Chevrolet, it was available with a GMC unique engine, the 305 cid V-6. This was in addition to GMC now also using Chevrolet’s sixes and V-8s. GMC’s trim lines also paralleled Chevy. From 1967 through 1971, they ranged from the basic Deluxe up to the Custom and the Super Custom at the top end. Changing for 1972, they then went from Custom, Super Custom, Sierra, to a new premium Sierra Grande which matched up with the Cheyenne Super. While GMC also used the C (two wheel drive) and K (four wheel drive) model designators, they differed from Chevrolet in that they used four digit numbers for the weight range. This was partially due to coordinating with their medium and heavy-duty trucks that were already using four digit model codes. As such, half-tons were 1500s, three-quarter tons were 2500s, and one-tons were 3500.
It is widely known that the 1970-1972 C10s are the most popular and most rapidly appreciating classic trucks on the market. But, Chevy/GMC stamped out thousands of these trucks and over the last 50 or so years, many have been altered beyond any resemblance of how they looked when new. This awesome C10 not only carries on the traditional overall looks from the era but combines all the modern day comforts needed to be a very fun driver. The Bronze & White patina is perfect and really sets this truck apart from the crowd! This C10 drives great, the A/C is blows cold, and everything works like it should. The odometer reads just under 1k miles which reflects the mileage on this truck since the build was completed in 2021. Additional features and options include; 5.3L Vortec Max, Auto, RWD, Saddle Vinyl Bench, Classic Auto A/C, 3-Row Aluminum Radiator w/ 2 Electric Fans, Relocated Fuel Cell, Dakota Digital Gauges, 3″/5″ Drop, CPP – Suspension, Sway Bar, & 4 Wheel Disc Brakes, Cross-drilled & Slotted Rotors, Power Steering, Chrome Grille, Softray Tinted Glass, Retro AM/FM/BT Stereo, Custom Sound System, Chrome Bumpers/Mirrors, LED Headlights, Wood Bed, Dual Exhaust, Owners Manual, 20″ Billet Specialty Wheels, and thick Lexani 245/40/R20 Tires!

Trying to build its twin with current labor rates, parts availability, and shop schedules is going to easily cost you $50k and several months. This is your opportunity to own a killer build and be driving it tomorrow! Do let this one slip away.
