The ‘50s were long gone, and Chevrolet saw an opportunity to run away with the American pickup truck market with their sleek new styling. The 1963 pickup trucks were leaner, roomier, and offered more power than any previous models and, by 1963, literally one out of every three pickups sold in America was a Chevy. Not just for tradesmen anymore, Chevrolet helped to usher in a golden age of pickup design and innovation that has lasted for decades.
This 1963 C10 received a complete frame-off restoration that was completed in 2013, done as a cool 50th anniversary tribute to these great trucks. Nothing was left to chance, and this restoration features a freshly rebuilt stock six-cylinder motor and a completely rebuilt manual transmission - just like it left Detroit. The combination has been long proven to be among the most reliable power plants ever developed. The engine bay is completely clean and correct, with just a few custom chrome parts including the air cleaner to add a little glitz on the rebuilt engine with just 125 miles. These trucks have legendary durability, and this one starts readily, idles easily, and runs great. It's just as clean underneath as it is on top, and you’ll be hard pressed to find anything that wasn't meticulously restored. Mechanically sound and strong throughout, it’s ready for many years of reliable service.
The correct factory Mint Green paint, wide whitewall tires, and factory chrome hubcaps give this truck a beautiful stock look. The door and tailgate fit indicate a truck that was solid even before restoration, as everything operates easily with excellent door and panel gaps. They didn’t stop on the outside, as the cab features a new interior, properly working gauges and clean floors. With a fine wood bed and custom wood side rails, this truck really does look like new and is certain to give the new owner a legendary pickup they can really be proud of. Pickups remain strong in the market, so jump in today and enjoy the looks you’ll get in this fine C10 from 1963.
