1971 Chevrolet C10 Shortbed

Take a step back in time with this beautifully restored 1971 Chevrolet C10 Shortbed, a highlight of the 9th Annual Salt Lake City Online Classic Car Auction. This pickup isn't just a mode of transport; it's a piece of art, showcasing a vibrant red exterior and a suite of upgrades that ensure it performs as brilliantly as it looks. Under the hood, it features a robust 350Ci V8 engine paired with a 350 automatic transmission, enhanced by a new Holley Street Demon 625cfm 4-barrel carburetor, new headers, and a chrome 100 AMP high-output alternator.

This original shortbed truck, originally from California, underwent a full restoration about ten years ago, modifying both its interior and exterior to pristine condition. Equipped with air ride suspension, front disk brakes, and power steering, it offers a smooth and responsive driving experience. Perfect for collectors and classic car enthusiasts, this C10 is a testament to the craftsmanship and style of its era. Ready to drive with an exceptionally straight and clean appearance, it does require exhaust installation to meet certain state emissions standards. See it here.
