Cheers or Jeers: 6,000 Mile Spirit of '76 1976 Chevrolet C10 Scottsdale
Fans of the ‘70s, this 1976 Chevrolet C10 pickup might just be the ultimate piece of memorabilia. Forget your Bicentennial quarter collection, your Captain America lunchbox, and your Donnie and Marie albums, this 100% authentic Spirit of ’76 edition pickup truck is what you need! The good news is that this is a Chevy C10 pickup truck, and brings with it all the good stuff that these trucks all possess: rugged good looks, unmatched durability, and the ability to handle all the performance modifications that you’d find on a Camaro or Chevelle. The blue paint is nicely done, and looks appropriate for the mid-70s, especially in such a patriotically theme vehicle. The sheetmetal is original, and it’s laser-straight, so you don’t have to wonder if this was some kind of work truck brought back to life. Instead, it has obviously been something special all its life, and like those aforementioned quarters, there are collectors keeping them safe for future generations to enjoy. The C10 offers plenty of eye candy, too, including chrome bumpers that have a great shine, an unmarked original grille, complete with ‘350’ badge, and a set of bed rails out back that are practical as well as stylish. And if you want it to work for a living, there’s a durable bed liner out back as well. But this truck’s real treat is inside, where it sports an all-original Spirit of ’76 interior in fabulous red, white, and blue. Everyone, and I mean everyone, was cashing in on the country’s 200th birthday, and GM built cars and trucks that were as patriotic as the national anthem. Just check out those seat covers, which offer white vinyl and a red and blue woven fabric insert that is all original and in outstanding condition. Matching blue carpets work with the exterior paint, and the contrasting white door panels are in excellent condition, right down to their ‘Spirit of ‘76’ badges—just try to find a set of those at a swap meet! This truck also offers factory A/C, an AM/FM stereo, and a tilt wheel, so it’s more than just a piece of memorabilia—it’s ready to drive! Nothing runs better than a smooth Chevy 350. Augmented with an Edelbrock intake and carburetor, long-tube headers, and an HEI ignition, it runs superbly with a V8 burble at idle and smooth torque throughout. A chrome air cleaner and polished aluminum valve covers add some flash, and there are obvious signs of care throughout its life. Even more fun, there’s a Muncie 4-speed fitted behind the hot small block, and running it through the gears is a joy. The exhaust system is all-new, and the rest of the chassis is stock and nicely preserved with no trouble spots. Four original steel wheels wear 235/75/15 whitewall radials, the perfect salute to 1976, don’t you think? Rare, nicely preserved, and a ton of fun to drive, this C10 will definitely get its share of double-takes. Call today!
