Description:

Pickup trucks are undoubtedly one of the fastest-growing segments of the hobby, and it''s no secret why. V8 power, lots of parts and knowledge around, and unmatched practicality that makes them an easy purchase to justify, all which make this 1978 Chevy C10 Cheyenne worthy of a closer look. Remember seeing trucks like this around town, maybe loading up at the hardware store or pulling a trailer? A lot of us do, which makes these Chevys in particular a sentimental favorite. The light blue and white color combination is how this one came from the factory, and it gives the old pickup a great look that''s right for the time period. The upgraded Cheyenne trim package outlines the white insert with stainless trim, and it seems that the only notable modification is a custom grille insert that looks good on the front of this full-sized rig. The bed is in remarkably good condition, indicative of a truck that hasn''t been used for work and was instead a daily driver, and it''s protected today with a spray-in bedliner that should last practically forever. Nice chrome bumpers, a blemish-free stainless tailgate insert, and oversized front bumper guards add a bit of sparkle that works well with the light blue paint. The medium blue interior is in similar condition, with what appears to be a newer seat cover and everything else in good original condition. Even in 1978, a lot of trucks came with simple rubber floor mats, so the carpets in the Cheyenne package are much appreciated and suit the somewhat luxury-oriented truck. It has an unusual combination of options, including factory A/C, a tilt column, and a sliding rear window, but there''s a radio block-off plate in the center of the dash. The steering wheel isn''t original but from a slightly later GMC pickup, but it fits and works just fine. This Cheyenne also includes a full complement of instruments that are in good shape with minor fading on the needles themselves, which is typical. Soft vinyl parts like the dash pad and door panels are nicely preserved and not baked by the sun and the headliner doesn''t sag. You could get a six in your full-sized Chevy, but most guys opted for V8 power. You''ll find a 305 cubic inch V8 under the hood here, which is a great choice for the guy who just wants to drive his truck and doesn''t plan any heavy hauling. Otherwise, it appears quite stock, which is a good thing for reliability and you know that it hasn''t been abused. It also looks like the brake system was recently serviced with a newer power brake booster and master cylinder. A TH350 3-speed automatic transmission and original rear end complete the powertrain, and the underside of this truck is in good order. The exhaust system was upgraded to dual glasspack-style mufflers at some point, so it has a great V8 exhaust note and factory Rally wheels carry big 235/75/15 radials. For not a lot of money, you have own a sweet-running vintage truck with a V8, and if anyone complains, just show them how much work it can do on the weekends. Call today! This vehicle is located in our Charlotte showroom. For more information, please call (704) 598-2130 or toll free (866) 542-8392.
