Very reliable great running 1969 Chevrolet C10 short bed pickup with a 350 SBC V8 engine and 350 turbo automatic transmission.
I have just had the engine tuned up with new plugs, wires, & rotor button.(HEI electronic ignition) I also recently changed the oil and installed a new battery. THIS TRUCK DOESN'T LEAK ANY FLUIDS!! The engine has a good rough idle cam with headers and dual exhaust that sounds great.(see video link) The 350 turbo transmission shifts through all the gears smoothly. And despite having manual steering and brakes the truck stops and steers easily. All brake, signals, and head lights work.
The body of the truck is very solid and straight as you can see in the pics. There is only the one rust through spot below the drivers side door pictured below that could be easily fixed if you wanted to paint the truck. Other than that the body and floor is solid any other rust seen on the is merely surface rust. It rides on 15" steel wheels with chevy bow tie dog dish style hub caps and 235/75 tires with about 85% of the tread left on them.
The truck has been lowered about 3" which gives a real nice stance and it gets lots of attention and thumbs up when driving around town, but its not so low that it can't still be used as a truck.
It is not a perfect show truck, but is a very nice, reliable turn key ride that needs nothing. It would make a great Shop truck, Hot Rod, Rat Rod, or drive it just as it is.
I reserve the right to end the auction early as the truck is also for sale locally. Email or call me with any questions or offers you have. Jeremy 864-940-4576 Thanks 4 looking...

Twelve different General Motors vehicles from the 2013 model year, up to 54,686 units in total, are being recalled over two potential issues with their steering columns. The models in question, all full-size trucks, SUVs or vans, are the: Cadillac Escalade, Escalade ESV, Escalade EXT, Chevrolet Avalanche, Express, Silverado, Suburban, Tahoe, and GMC Savana, Sierra, Yukon and Yukon XL.
The affected vehicles were built with a fractured parking lock cable or "a malformed steering column lock actuator gear in the lock module assembly." As a consequence, they could shift out of park without the brake pedal being applied or with the key removed or in the off position.
A bulletin from the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration indicates that the recall should begin on January 17. GM will notify owners, at which time they can take their vehicles to their dealers for repair free of charge. Have a look at the bulletin below for more information.
If you want a new 2014 Chevrolet Corvette but can't quite save up enough pennies for the monthly payment, we have good news for you. Toymaker New Bright has pulled the covers off of its 1:8 scale remote-controlled version of the American sports car. Complete with a very detailed interior and LED headlights, this large-scale R/C is as close as most of us will ever come to having one of the menacing Chevrolet models to call our very own. New Bright still hasn't released pricing or availability, but word has it the coupe should hit the market soon.
Right now, it appears as if the C7 will hit shelves in Torch Red, though we don't know if other colors are planned as well. The good news is that New Bright isn't exactly turning its back on the old C6 - representatives say the company will continue to make its popular C6R racecar for those who prefer round taillights.
Chevy's goal at the SEMA Show in Las Vegas this week seems to be to show as much of its Performance and Accessories catalog as possible. That's why it brought three different Camaros - two with V8s and one powered by a V6 - with all of the best goodies from the catalog already fitted.
We gave a more in-depth recap of the Performance Camaro V8 Concept, the Performance Camaro V6 Concept and the Performance Garage Concept already, but we figured you'd like a short recap for each. It should be noted, though, that you can order all of the items you see here for your own Camaro, so be sure to take a long, hard look at our live galleries, just in case you're in the market for some mods.
Essentially, the Performance Garage Concept and the Performance V8 Concept are the same car - the only difference is that the later features a whole host of aesthetic tweaks in addition to its aftermarket, shorty exhaust headers and 2.75-inch exhaust. (The Performance Garage Concept has been usefully placed on its side; the better to see the new parts added to the vehicle.) The Performance V6 Concept is notable because, despite being a V6, there's no shortage of performance goodies fitted. All three of the Performance Camaros benefit from items from the Camaro ZL1, which can also be ordered through the catalog.
