1972 Chevy K10 SWB – Building on the successful first series of C/K pickup, Chevrolet launched a revised version in 1967. Coil springs remained at all four corners beneath the restyled 1967 Chevy C10, but a crisp, clean pickup appeared on the outside, and in some opinions the new Chevy looked even more modern than its half-ton Ford rival, which was also updated that year. Both Stepside and Fleetside availability carried over from 1966, and revised grilles continued to represent new model-year calling cards up through 1972. The 1971 and 1972 Chevy pickups tend to be the most popular, with a shared large egg crate grille and further refinements such as front disc brakes. Today, this generation of Chevrolet C10 and K10 are some of the most loved collector trucks extant, and for good reason. They are drop-dead gorgeous, have timeless styling, possess good build quality, and are easily drivable in modern traffic. Furthermore production numbers were large and they were home to several of the same engines used in popular Chevy cars, meaning maintenance, restoration, and upgrades are all relatively easy endeavors.

This beautiful K10 recently arrived to the showroom and really grabs your attention. It is a great combination of factory looks and paint with upgraded suspension and rims/tires. The builder chose to seal the original paint to preserve the great looks for years to come. The original Ochre paint paired with the white powder coated wheels is a great color combo. On the interior, new carpet and a new black vinyl bench freshen up the truck while maintaining that original look. The drivetrain is still the original 350 V8 with 4 speed manual and 3.73 gears. We drove this K10 and found that it rides nicely and everything works as it should. Features and options include; 350 V8, 4 Speed Manual, 4WD, Chrome Grille, Power Brakes, Power Steering, Warn Locking Hubs, Edelbrock Carb, Chrome Valve Covers, Chrome Air Cleaners, Dual Flowmaster Exhaust, AM/FM Stereo, Soft-Ray Tinted Glass, Refreshed Interior, Lift, 15″ Powder Coated Rims, & New BF Goodrich 35×12.5 LT All-Terrain Tires! While prices on the C/K Series trucks aren’t as low as they used to be, keep in mind that a restored ’70-’72 K10 SWB is now a $100k+ truck. The beautiful example doesn’t need anywhere near $60k in paint/body to be at that level.
