Sweet Shop Truck: 1972 Chevrolet C-10

1972 Chevrolet pickups have been very desirable for decades. The handsome grille design combined with classic styling makes them unique and collectible. This one can be found here on eBay with a current bid over $15,000, the reserve hasn’t been met yet. Based on the information in the ad, it sounds like it has been upgraded as needed, but is mostly original. Located in¬†Nashville, Tennessee, this looks like a solid driver that can be upgraded as the owner sees fit, but it can be enjoyed right away. Have a look for yourself.

The engine is the original 350 cubic inch V8 that has been rebuilt. It features new heads and a re-worked cam to improve performance. The small block 350 is a tried and true power plant that is easy to work on and easy to get parts for. It also appears to have a new master cylinder attached to a power booster.

The interior has been freshened up with a new seat cover, carpet, and dash pad. The brown color is very attractive against the Ochre paint. As mentioned before, the new owner can drive this truck and upgrade it along the way. The aftermarket is packed with parts and upgrades for the 1967-72 Chevrolet lineup.

Speaking of the paint, the seller says the truck has an “Old respray of original Ochre color.” While probably not the most attractive color option in 1972, it certainly speaks to the time period. I think I had the same color carpet in the house I grew up in. Overall, along with the work that has been done and the new tires and wheels, this looks like a great driver. What do you think?

    Always wondered if those step bumpers engraved with the dealers name were provided free by the dealer, back when a rear bumper cost extra on pickups.

      The dealer in my hometown still charged for it, but it was less than a chrome bumper. But if you had negotiation strategy, you could get them to throw it in for free.

    Nice looking truck that sits right and has the desired wheelbase. It should continue to see bidders move the price higher.

    No, they gave you the opportunity to pay them to advertise their business.

    Great looking truck and the best modern body style Chevrolet had in my opinion!!!

    Bid is approaching 20K and reserve not met. This just proves the populatity of these trucks. This one seems close to as good as you will find, but it always costs more to go first class!

    In my eyes the 67/68 is the best looking trucks ever, but the 69 to 72 are only a tick away because 67 front clip and hood nearly go on blind folded.

      71 and 72 have disc brakes that helps. There are great trucks that atill have a metaic sound when you close the door. Had a 71 that I really liked. Was a great truck.

    I always wanted one of these, although I like the GMC grill a hair better. Either the GMC or Chevy would work.
    One day I will have one! Just now is not the time.
    I really like this one!
