Can You Find A Better: 1969 Chevy C-10

1969 Chevrolet C-10 Stepside

Yesterday we featured a nice Ford F-100 for our CYFBO and you guys found a lot of great trucks! Keeping with the Stepside style trucks, Jim S sent in this C-10 and I thought, why not see if you guys can top this find! With an opening bid of $4,000, the price isn’t quite as attractive as the Fords, but it still seems like a good buy. This one can be found here on eBay in Mount Vernon, Illinois. So, can you find a better deal for Chevy C-10 Stepside? Good luck and I can’t wait to see what you guys find!

    Here’s a ’68 long bed:

    And another ’68, but this one is a short bed. It’s also super rough:

    The USAF used these by the thousands as Sky Cop vehicles. When they started coming through the surplus system I bought them by the dozen for 100-200.00 each. They were great little trucks, handled and rode like a car and very well built. I sold them serviced and with new batteries for 500.00 or so each. People forget how much four wheel drive limits steering. These little 4X2’s would do a u turn in a normal street width. They are cheep and easy to fix, get decent fuel economy. Great little trucks that have been “discovered” and become expensive.

    Here is a step side to add to the list. Like most vehicles you need to check in person, but this could be a nice start or drive as is.

    The elusive step-side. They’re certainly more difficult to find. Even more difficult to find one not customized.

    Here are a couple I found that are of the same body style but modified.

    Here is a 65 3/4 ton that is listed at 1800. It’s crusty but very cool. Alas, the ad is marked sold.

      That one in Salina had my attention until I saw that it had a car chassis. Don’t know how well that works but it is a clean truck.

    I’m not even a truck guy, but do car appraisals and was once called to a dealer to appraise a high end ’71 C10 Stepside Restomod with a 350 and 4 speed. Sweetest driving truck ever and nearly made a truck guy out of me.

    This Chevy has been for sale for awhile. Lots of cab rust/caved in roof etc. Look for one with less cab/rocker rust. They’re out there. Been looking for some time for a good one. This ones pretty nice and the GMC versions are a little more rare :

    1968 Longbed.

    This one is down to $4900 on the local Facebook Sale pages, even though the ad says $5500.

    Dave W – I love you but not really – DW is a cool guy that makes a profit and sleeps well at night. These flippers asking 4-grand for an old farm truck they most likely gave $800 for are just ruining it for the folks that would like one to fix up. At $4000 you’re going to put at least another $2000-$3000…..geez….

    Stepsides are more often found on farms as that’s what they needed the step for – fleets were for city folks going to a ball…..maybe

  9. Harold Wood had a bunch of these old C-10, only have two left right now. I can’t seem to get the kind of money all these are bring. I have two left eight now, a 69 short wide bed sold the fenders and core support off it to a guy restoring one awhile back guy never found the title to it when I bought it also I have a 71 long wide bed that I used as a driver for years, but the transmission started slipping and I parked it, Had cold air great running 350 motor with glass packs nice tires and wheels but the tires are weather cracked now, Sold my 72 Blazer a few months ago had a 350 automatic with 4 wheel drive that all ran good and worked but had rust in all the normal places. only got $1750. for it also had a 71 blazer I sold a few years ago that was a good driver nice paint and very little rust sold it for $2500. They just don’t seem to bring as much around where I live, but maybe prices are getting better.

      Here is the 71 C10 pictures didn’t post for some reason.

        Been thinking about restoring it, but never seem to have both money and time at the same time. A friend of mine and I bought 500 old cars and trucks about ten years ago in a package from the estate of a guy who died, he bought them over the years from a guy who collected them up a charity place where they were donated. We each saved a few that we liked and sold a few to friends then had a crusher come in and crush the rest after we had all the radiators, catalictic converters, batteries and things that were worth money pulled. Made out like Bandits on the deal. I also saved a 76 Ranchero GT out of the bunch and have it also waiting out in the pasture until I get younger and find time to restore it.
