“The long, strong line for '65” – Chevrolet C10 magazine ad headline

Hagerty described the Sixties Chevy pickups: “Aircraft-inspired 'nacelles' graced the hood of the attractively restyled 1960 Chevrolet C10, which now relied on independent front suspension (the pickup market's first) sprung by torsion bars instead of coils. Coil springs brought up the rear in place of the leafs installed prior to 1960. Conventional coils replaced the torsion bars up front in 1963, allowing the frame's reinforcing x-member, in place since 1960, to be deleted.”

“The 1960 model year was the first in which Chevy pickups featured a full-width pickup box as standard equipment. Styling is a hit or miss affair for the earlier years (1960-62), with wrap-around windshields and their unique hoods that are all but impossible to find as replacements. GM discontinued this difficult-to-stamp component for the 1963 model year, even for collision replacement parts, so it's not unusual to find earlier trucks with the later 1963-66 hoods. Those later years saw styling that was more mainstream looking, and those are generally most sought-out by collectors. Externally, only the trim shuffle games prevalent in Detroit at the time differentiate 1964 through 1966s.”

Offered here is a fully restored, respectfully upgraded, and substantially up-engined 1965 C10 Chevrolet Pickup in orange and ivory over the same color combination interior. Showing just 58 miles on its odometer since its rotisserie restoration work was completed, the truck is virtually flawless in every respect.

The superb quality of the truck's paintwork is the result of a comprehensive, frame-off, glass-out respray. Originally a southern truck, the rotisserie restoration began with a rust-free body and chassis. (The accompanying gallery includes photo documentation of the work.) The orange and ivory two-tone combination was applied to the body in keeping with the factory spec, down to and including the “C-h-e-v-r-o-l-e-t” embossed tailgate lettering in ivory. Every painted body panel exhibits perfect gloss, and there are no dings or dents anywhere on the truck. (To best assess the quality of the paint and trim finishes, be sure to view the close-up photographs of the car in the accompanying gallery.) Cabin glass and lighting lenses are pristine. Chrome brightwork—on the grille, both bumpers, stylized body-side trim, cab trim, mirrors and door handles, and lighting trim—is outstanding. Chain tailgate supports even include the plastic sleeves protecting the body from scratches. Factory badging, including the “Chevrolet” front-grille and tailgate lettering, “C10” hood-side emblems, and script “Custom” cab lettering is all as-new and perfectly sharp. The cargo bed wood and metal rub strips are likewise brand new and perfectly installed. Chrome, 18-inch XD® wheels are mounted with Kelly® Edge 245/60 all-season tires.

Inside, the exterior color combination continues on metal surfaces, and the quality of the finish is equally outstanding. Upgraded TMI® bucket seats upholstered in black leather in a horizontally pleated pattern are separated by a matching storage-armrest unit with cupholders. Black carpeting covers the floors. Simple door trim is ivory-painted metal. A chrome, 3-spoke sport steering wheel with black leather-covered rim fronts a refreshed instrument cluster with new standard and digital speedometers, tachometer and engine-monitoring gauges arranged in the stock configuration. Air-conditioning controls and vents, as well as cruise-control switches, are included on the dash, as is chrome, “Chevrolet”-embossed trim below the glove box. A stock-appearing push-button radio is mounted in the factory-radio location. The shift lever for the automatic transmission (from a 2010 Camaro) is mounted on the steering column.

Under the hood, the truck has been re-powered with a 400-horsepower Camaro L99 6.2-liter V8. Black engine surfaces and orange-painted, Chevrolet-branded valve covers, together with the Spectre® custom, low-restriction air intake make for an impressive presentation. All components—including air conditioning—are properly and professionally installed and the engine bay is perfectly clean. Viewed from below, the truck's rust-free chassis is as impressive; refinished frame and components, lower-engine surfaces, 4-wheel disc brakes, renewed suspension components, and the lower view of the wood cargo box are focal points.

While the more than 155 high-definition photographs and the short walk-around-and-startup video available on the GarageKeptMotors website showcase this '65 C10 in detail from every angle, including from below, we expect and encourage in-person inspections at our Grand Rapids, Michigan showroom. Please call to arrange an appointment in advance as our showroom is not open to the public. And feel free to get in touch anytime by phone or email if you have questions.

As everyone knows, vintage pickup trucks are highly sought-after these days. The sage classic-car buying advice still applies: “Buy the best one you can afford.” That almost certainly will put this comprehensively restored orange C10 at the very top of your list.
