Plus, it’s been converted to a 4x4.

Right off the bat, this 1972 Chevrolet C10 looks bad – in a good way, of course! The two-door pickup is currently up for sale by Art & Speed Classic Car Gallery in Tennessee. The current asking price is $19,900 and there are just 53,000 original miles on the dash of this 47-year old stunner. For a custom beast like this, that’s a great deal. After all, this is basically a wolf in sheep’s clothing and you’ll soon find out why.

This 1972 Chevrolet C10 pickup truck has been fully restored and the result is anything but conventional. It got turned into a go-anywhere and haul-anything kind of vehicle thanks to a full 4x4 conversion. Since the 4x4 variants are hard to come by, a conversion kit seemed to be the obvious choice here. The best part is that it is already installed, tested and ready to go.

The 1972 C10s were the last year of the second-generation Chevy C/C pickups. In their twelve-year run, these trucks really succeeded in terms of perfecting the looks, power, and suspension components. Chevrolet C10 trucks are highly sought after, especially as collector’s items.

On the outside, this ’72 C10 is rocking a unique Silver Green paint job (olive, if you will) that adds to its tactical, rugged appearance. It also sports black front and rear bumpers with chrome carriage bolts and chrome tow hooks. The chrome side mirrors blend in beautifully with the color scheme. At the front, you will find a 1969 grille that helps further set this truck apart and keeps people guessing about it. The subtle black fender flares give it an all-around accented look that complements the matte black rear vertical stripe and black tailgate outline. The rear also features a black tonneau cover that’s in great condition with three support ribs.

The interior has definitely been well taken care of and restored. It features black vinyl bench seats, dash pad, door panels, and floor mats. It includes all the original gauges and steering wheel. The stereo system has been upgraded with dual six-inch speakers in the doors and a removable face stereo in the dashboard.

This Chevy pickup was custom built from the suspension, drivetrain, and frame of a factory 1969 4WD K10 Blazer. It’s powered by Chevy’s renowned 350 cubic-inch V8 engine mated to a three-speed automatic transmission and manual transfer case that gets the power to two or four wheels, as needed. Now the only thing left to do is sign the paperwork and get this truck out on the road, or off of it.
