Description for GMC C10 1970
You want cool? You've got it with this 1970 GMC C10 pickup. With a high-visibility paint job, a cackling fuel-injected LS2 V8, and a tasteful interior, they don't come any brighter than this. It also helps that this one has the perfect stance, lots of performance, and a practical 8-foot bed that can still work for a living.If you're looking for a truck to drive and enjoy, they don't come much nicer than this. Hugger Orange looks great on anything from the muscle car era, especially something born in 1970 such as this GMC. It seems to be wearing a combination of fresh and original paint, which means that there are no secrets or bad surprises waiting under the surface and it has an overall look that's very appealing. A glance in all the nooks and crannies shows that this truck probably spent the entirety of its life down south where it's warm and while there are a few bumps and bruises here and there, the sucker looks awesome going down the road. The white top is a traditional look that GM pickups have worn for years, and it contrasts wonderfully with the modern stance and rolling stock. Add some bright stainless trim and chrome bumpers to break up all that orange, a neatly lettered tailgate that looks traditional, and a bed protected with a spray-in bedliner, and, well, you have one heck of a truck.The flashback to the '60s continues inside with a light tan interior that's seldom seen in pickups but looks and works great. The tan upholstery works well with the Hugger Orange paint, and the durable vinyl seating surfaces should last practically forever. We believe the carpets and seat cover are recent, and it's been fitted with matching door panels and a wood-rimmed steering wheel to add to the luxury-oriented vibe. An array of factory gauges is included, including a rather rare factory tach, and they're augmented with a set of white-faced dials for water temperature, oil pressure, and voltage in the original holes. A column-shifted automatic means that three-across seating is comfortable, not awkward, and heavy-duty floor mats seem to suit the truck just fine. There's also a decent-sounding AM/FM radio in the original slot, so it looks right but provides a nice update over the original AM unit. Looking for a truck you can drive cross-country without complaint? You've just found it.Part of that driving pleasure comes from the late-model LS2 6.0 liter V8 fitted between the fenders. Pulled from a 2002 Chevy 2500 pickup, it was tuned by the pros at LSexperts who have made it run like the factory built it. But even though it's a modern powerplant, it has a 1970 performance look, complete with Chevy Orange paint on the engine cover. There's a big aluminum radiator up front, a custom air cleaner unit, and OEM-style hoses and wiring to make it work reliably. It's backed by a stout 700R4 4-speed automatic transmission and a 12-bolt rear, so you don't have to worry about actually putting it to work (this would be an awesome tow vehicle for your Camaro!). The underside is typical of a vehicle that has lived someplace warm, and while it's unrestored, it has been well maintained and drives superbly, especially with the lowered suspension and power front disc brakes. A pair of Flowmaster mufflers give it a mellow exhaust note and those Torque Thrust wheels are fitted with fat 255/55/18 performance radials for a great street stance.This is a well-built truck with great hardware and a brilliant paint job. The fact that it can also earn its keep around the house only makes it easier to get approval for the purchase. Call today!
