Classic Pickup trucks are an American icon in the automotive industry. With names as famous as the Chevy C10 along with various others, the culture that surrounds the classic truck market continues to grow and strengthen every day.
The unfortunate reality is that classic trucks are becoming extremely hard to find in good condition. While it’s true that these trucks were built to survive even the harshest of conditions, 50 years is still plenty of time for nature to take its toll on our beloved classics. This is where the idea of looking for an already restored example comes into play. While trucks found sitting in a field or rotting in some old long-forgotten garage may be had for a deal, restored vehicles like this 1968 Chevy C10 being offered by Vicari Auctions presents bidders with a value of a different manor, quality and dependability.
As one of Chevy’s most famous small pickup trucks, the 1968 Chevy C10 was made popular by its incredible style and V8 power options, all of which this truck retains. Under the hood is a 396-cid big-block V8 engine paired with an automatic transmission. A frame-off restoration has been completed ensuring the blue finished body is completely free of rust. Adding a bit of modern style and driveability, the truck is equipped with power steering, power front disc brakes, a strong 12-bolt rear end, and large wheels and tires that give a commanding presence.
The truck is said to run and drive with excellence and it is also equipped with the factory air conditioning which allows for a more comfortable ride. Rare interior features such as the tilt steering wheel, factory tachometer, and the ultra-rare “Buddy” jump seat add even more appeal to the truck.
