1979 Chevy C10 Custom Deluxe – Thoroughly redesigned from stem to stern, the all-new third generation C/K trucks for 1973 proved to be the longest lived series in Chevrolet’s history and the three-box styling has proved quite popular since. Aside from wheels and hubcaps, there really wasn’t much that was round anywhere in the design other than the body sides that featured a sculpted character line with a central plateau panel as well as curved side glass, a first on a GM truck. Trim lines were also revamped, ranging from the entry-level Custom to the Custom Deluxe, Cheyenne and top-end Cheyenne Super. They were shuffled for 1975, with the Scottsdale moniker replacing the Cheyenne Super as the top-of-the-line package, while the Custom series was deleted. The next year, Chevy was back up to four trim lines with the addition of the Silverado at the top of the series. By and large, this remained the trim hierarchy for the remainder of series production.
At Texas Trucks & Classics we are always on the look out for great Chevy trucks. This beautiful C10 Custom Deluxe shortbed was located in neighboring New Mexico and had recently received several upgrades from the previous owner. Once it arrived in TX we went through the truck from bumper-2-bumper making sure everything looked and worked as it should. The end result is an outstanding looking truck that can be driven daily and shown on the weekends. A complete list of features includes; V8, Auto, RWD, Two-Tone Paint, Vista Camper Top, Custom Vinyl Bench w/ Orange Plaid Insert, Lowered, A/C, Power Steering & Brakes, Sony AM/FM/Cassette, Softray Tinted Glass, Chrome Mirrors, Owners Manual, Tire Tools, 15″ Factory Hubcaps, and Cooper Whitewall Tires! The Round-eye squares have a style that can’t be beat and this two-tone example has the stance and look that really turns heads!
