This 1977 Chevrolet stepside pickup is a perfect example of why these 3rd generation C/K pickups were so wildly popular. Rugged, handsome, and fun to drive, they were some of the first trucks to acknowledge that some trucks aren't workhorses, but daily transportation. Thirty-five years later, this truck can still be used as daily transportation, and it won't be a sacrifice. Nicely preserved and featuring a new cab and bed from TMS, this truck is ready for just about anything you can throw at it. Daily driver? Perfect, because it has power brakes, power steering and even factory A/C. A trip to Home Depot for that load of lumber for the new deck? Check, it can still haul with the best of them. Weekend toy? Absolutely, because it now qualifies as an antique with clubs like the AACA, and would be welcomed at any of their shows and tours. Preserved rather than restored, this truck still has a lot of life left in it, and isn't one of those vehicles that have been worked to within an inch of their life. Bright red makes it stand out, especially when so many of them were painted more traditional '70s colors like brown and tan, and as a southern truck, rust isn't an issue. There's no need to worry about paint and bodywork, and if you get a scratch or ding in it, it won't be the end of the world. Yet at the same time, every time you park it, you're sure to get a few admiring glances. The wooden bed floor is beautifully done, there's no rust, and the chrome pieces are still shiny and bright. Neglect was never part of this truck's life. The interior is what really set these trucks apart. While many work vehicles still sported vinyl seats and rubber floors, the Chevy C/K pickups could be optioned up like Impalas, with plush cloth seats and almost any power option you wanted. The red interior in this truck matches the exterior nicely, and remains in very good original condition, although the black carpets are much too nice to be original. The steering wheel is an aftermarket piece and there's an updated stereo in the dash, but otherwise it's as the factory intended. And don't forget the factory A/C, which was practically a mandatory option in the deep south where this truck lived its life. The 350 cubic inch V8 under the hood was rebuilt recently, and has just shakedown and test mileage on it. This wasn't just a parts store rebuild, either, and the nicely detailed engine sits in an extremely clean engine bay. With a coat of Chevy Orange paint, it really pops against the satin black inner fenders (which are rust-free, by the way), and chrome accessories like the valve covers and air cleaner brighten things up. For a little more power, the intake is by Edelbrock, and it exhales through a great-sounding dual exhaust system with polished tips behind the rear wheels. The transmission is a 3-speed automatic, and underneath, the chassis is every bit as clean as the engine bay. It rolls on a set of handsome 15-inch wheels with trim rings and a recent set of tires. Clean trucks like this are getting increasingly difficult to find, and the stepside box on a short chassis is the most desirable of them all. With a fresh engine, factory air, and that gorgeous restored oak bed, it's the kind of truck you can use and enjoy while you upgrade it to suit your own tastes, which is easy to do thanks to a massive aftermarket.
