This great truck spent its utilitarian life South of the rust belt. It was built in St. Louis. After serving light duty in Southern Iowa, it was cosmetically restored. It has only been driven 81,387 miles. Plus the miles I will put on!
It is very original in appearance and components. The glove box SPID is still in place and tells that this truck is still equipped and styled as it was built.
The White/Ochre/White/Ochre paint scheme is eye-catching and historic to the era. It is set-off by the Cheyenne trim package. The original wheel covers have been upgraded to the Rally wheels. The G78-15 tires are new 275/60/15 Cooper Cabra radials. There is a tonneau cover. The stance is enhanced by a bit of lowering.
The body and paint is very nice. Greta for a local cruise night or show. If you inspect it carefully, you may discover a chip or imperfection caused by driving.
The engine is the 350-4V coupled to a 350 Hydra-matic. Stock in appearance and performance. A dual exhaust system was connected to the stock manifolds. The distributor was changed to HEI.
Recent improvements include A/C conversion to 134a, new front rotors and calipers, new master cylinder, new rear shoes, hoses/belts changed, front end aligned. I believe the radiator was replaced. All fluids have been changed.
The interior has been restored to stock. The Saddle Vinyl seat is beautiful. The carpet is great. The steering wheel is upgraded. The original AM radio was replaced with a modern stereo.
All features work properly with exception of the horn and the parking brake. There is a spare in the box. The original jack and handle still reside beneath the seat. The doors lock via key.
This is a great truck to drive. The 3.08 gears offer nice freeway cruising. It is reliable and handles very well.
You have to appreciate the restoration to original appearance. The color scheme is striking. You will be proud to own and show-off this 72 Cheyenne C10.
