Although GM's square-body trucks have been getting lots of love lately on the resale market, there's still nothing sweeter looking than one of these second-gen trucks. A perfect example is this 1972 Chevrolet K10 Cheyenne Super that has been fully, and it will be up for grabs off next month through Vicari Auction.
Fresh off a full restoration, this 1972 K10 has a killer look to it with its straight body, smooth black paint and the big lift and tires. This truck is easily recognizable as a Cheyenne Super trim level with the wood accents on the exterior body trim. The Cheyenne Super was introduced for the 1971 and 1971 model years as the top-of-the-line trim level for the Chevy C/K trucks; its GMC counterpart is the Sierra Grande trim. The wood trim from the exterior carries over into the cabin, and this truck looks even fancier (for the '70s) with the houndstooth on the seats and headliner.
Under the hood, this K10 uses a 350 CID V8, which is paired to a three-speed automatic and four-wheel drive. It also benefits from power steering, power brakes and an air conditioning system from Vintage Air, and with the recent restoration, you can guarantee that this truck is completely rust free. With this setup, this big, bad K10 is ready to take on any terrain, but it might actually be too nice to take off road.
The 1972 model year was the final year for this style truck, which was built from 1967 until 1972, before GM switched to the aforementioned square-body design for 1973. Like the newer-style trucks, this second-gen Chevy and GMC trucks are continuing to increase in popularity. if you want your shot at buying this tastefully modified 1972 Chevrolet K10, be sure you're registered to bid at Vicari Auction's Biloxi, Mississippi event taking place October 10-12.
