Better then new. Rare factory options- a/c, ps, pb!

I can make a strong argument that this is the best 1966 Chevy truck in the country. The combination of quality and features are unbeatable. The body off frame restoration is off the charts nice. Only 159 miles since completed. The options are amazing- factory a/c, power steering and brakes, 327 motor with auto trans and more. Remember unlike today, trucks were just looked at as work horses and rarely ordered with any options. This truck has them all! We just acquired a thick binder of the restoration receipts and a binder of restoration pics.

EXTERIOR: It's probably better than it was when it left the factory because the paint jobs were not this smooth. The body is absolutely straight, there's no signs of any rust or damage. Every single piece of trim is new. Upfront has the optional chrome grill and bumper (new) the turn signals are new. All the optional side moldings, mirrors, antenna, door handles are new. In back it has the optional chrome bumper which is new, optional reverse lights are new, the tail lights and latches are new. The windshield has been replaced, the gaskets around all the windows are new. Inside the door jambs are painted, bottom of the doors are spotless, sill plates are new, latches are detailed, weather strips are new. The rims have been painted to match the truck, caps and optional trim rings are highly polished chrome. Tires are upgraded to radials. Inside the bed is finished with the same quality as the exterior, there are no dents, damage or scrapes. It's all painted beautifully. New wood floor refinished in a dark stain. Powder coated black metal strips are held in with stainless hardware. The pics show this truck taken down to a bare metal shell.

INTERIOR: The rare factory air conditioning was built right into the dash and that meant the ashtray had to be relocated below the dash. During my research I read that these ashtrays are unattainable if missing, this truck has it. Also under the dash is the optional emergency flashers. It has the in dash optional tachometer and gauges too. The radio is upgraded to a modern retro stereo and there are upgraded seatbelts. The condition inside the truck is like brand new. The whole inside of the cab was painted. The seat was recushioned and reupholstered in the correct material. The dash area is all restored- the knobs, lenses, gauges, steering wheel all look brand new. It has the original rubber floor mat. The mirror, visors, handles, armrests are new. I even looked underneath the seat and the bottom side is all painted gloss black. The heater box is all restored. It's like new inside this truck. Everything is new-Horn button retainer, turn signal switch and lever, glove box light assembly. The list goes on, everything is new!

ENGINE COMPARTMENT: Most were 6 cylinders, some were 283s with 2 barrel carb, this has an original 327 with a 4 barrel carb. First year the 327 was available. The motor compartment is detailed like a model car. With only 159 miles it hasn't even had a chance to get dirty. All the metal is smooth as a chalk board and has satin finish black paint. The firewall is gloss red. The motor has a clean coat of the correct aqua color. All the components look new, everything has it's proper finishes. The fan shroud has it's raw fiberglass finish, the heater box is detailed. It is 100% like factory, no aftermarket changes. The upper radiator hose is the correct metal tube, the decals on the valve covers are correct for a truck. After reading the receipts I realize everything under the hood is new from hood springs to spark plug shields to restored carb. Every single part is new or restored.

UNDERSIDE: It is still new under this truck. Even the oil pan and inside of the rims are still spotless. The steering and suspension is completely rebuilt front and back. New correct exhaust, new shocks, fuel lines, brake lines, brakes, starter, bushings, e-brake cables, wiring etc. The transmission was upgraded to a 700R-4 overdrive automatic. The pics show the bottom stripped to bare metal-zero rust. Every part is new or restored-steering box, springs, pinion seal, tie rod, everything! Pull the brake drum, even inside the brakes are new and detailed.

I just read the receipts. First of all this restorer is super meticulous. Every receipt is in it's own plastic sleeve in a binder. You do not realize how much goes into a restoration of this quality until you read the receipts. Every little clip, screw and clamp. All new wiring. Not only a new gas tank but also the straps, sending unit and insulation pad. Every single grommet, window seal and gasket is new. The window regulators are new. If you could go back in time and order the best 1966 C-10 this would be it. Well you don't need a time machine, we have the holy grail available for you right here, right now!
