A restomod with all the right moves in all the right places.
Classic Auto Mall is pleased to announce this 1971 Chevrolet C10, just the latest in a series of sweet C/K head-turners. If you are a fan of the color purple, then this purple people eater (or should we say, pleaser) will make you one very happy owner. This classic restomod pickup truck is the stuff of dreams with its straight panels, bright chrome, a new interior, powerful mill to round it all out. The flames on the sides are just the icing on the cake. It could be yours today at $30,000, and you can also make an offer on the vehicle here.
This 1971 C10 sports a shaved modified rear with widened fender tubs for a lower ride with some eye-catching stance. There’s white under the purple paint with plenty of heat added to the vehicle in the form of thin-licking flame pinstriping. The new bed is lined with gray carpet and covered by a solid lift-up tonneau whose interior is gray cloth with a centered purple bowtie. The look is tied together with a purple spoiler.
The cab has been chopped, and the door handles have been shaved; a new remote now pops them open. At the front of the truck, you’ll find a large purple scoop on the hood and shiny horizontal bars that protect the radiator and add some pizzazz. This beauty rides on 15-inch weld Prostar wheels wrapped in 31x16.5-15LT Mickey Thompson Sportsman Pro rear tires with 215/65R15 tires in the front.
The bucket seats are dressed in light gray broadcloth peppered with purple cloth accents to continue the stunning color scheme over to the inside. The cabin also sports a custom center console in gray, which houses a storage compartment and cup holders. The console stops abruptly at the floor-mounted gearshift. Other interior features include the original C10 style dash, an aftermarket radio/CD player, large bowtie logo, adjustable steering column with a rally-style steering wheel, a tachometer, and clean gray carpeting. The headliner also has a gray burlap textured cloth with another purple bowtie in the center. The door panels are also splashed in purple.
This classic pickup is powered by a simple, yet effective Chevrolet 350 cubic-inch crate motor topped with a Holley 750 CFM carburetor and Cam Hy balancer. The engine is mated to a TH400 three-speed automatic transmission, and all the way back is a 12-bolt 3.55 Posi rear. The undercarriage is also impressive and very clean with black paint in excellent condition. It’s broken up by the dual exhausts and shiny oil pan. Underneath, you’ll also find power disc brakes up front and power drums at the rear.
It’s not hard to see what a fine restoration job this C10 received. It sports a unique look, all while retaining its mostly original form. For anyone who is passionate about the color purple, this truck has your name all over it.
