Hugger Orange and more bowties than cylinders!
Custom trucks always command a little extra presence when rolling up to a car show, and this 1972 Chevrolet C10 is surely going to get attention wherever it goes. There isn’t about this truck that hasn’t been customized and modified, and if you’re in the market for a flashy, show-ready classic truck, this bad boy will be up for auction later this month.
There are numerous custom touches added to this C10, but it definitely flies the Chevrolet flag loudly and proudly wearing Chevy’s signature Hugger Orange paint job with no less than nine bowtie logos visible on this truck. Despite coming from this body style’s final model year (1972), this C10 wears the nose of the first model year (1967) defined by the single headlights and stacked grille, while the rear of the truck replaces the factory bed with a step-side cargo bed from a late-model Chevy truck. Elements such as the shaved bumpers, 20-inch wheels, side-outlet exhaust and the power hood and power tailgate make this one exciting custom truck.
The listing combines no images of this Chevy C10’s interior, but we can only imagine how nice it is if it’s half as custom as the exterior. What we do know is that a 400 cubic-inch small-black Chevy engine is underneath the hood of this custom truck, and this V8 is backed by a four-speed automatic transmission. Power brakes and power steering ensures that this custom Chevy will be a cool cruiser.
This custom 1972 Chevrolet C10 will cross the auction block at Raleigh Classic Car Auctions upcoming Summer 2020 Raleigh Classic, which takes place August 21-22, so be sure you’re registered to bid.
