1972 Chevy c-10 Cheyenne Super
It was getting hard for me to drive my 1956 pickup so I decided to look for a "67-72 pickup with auto transmission and air conditioning.
I watched the ads for about six months and came across this one. It's everything I wanted including long bed so I can haul my mobility scooter to shows and swap meets. I have gone to several shows this season with it. I have stuck to small local shows this year. Last year I took it to the C/K magazine show in this area. It draws more attention then any vehicle I have ever had. I think Americans like trucks, especially old ones.
I found this truck on Craigslist in the Kansas City area. I have had it about 3 years now. It was bought new in Arkansas. The owner died & his widow left it in the garage for many years. The man I bought it from had it about 10 years but didn't use it for several of those years.
To bring it back to derivable condition, I took it to my friends shop & aired up the tires & changed all the fluids & filters. It ran & drove real good.
I ended up putting in a new radiator as the core had a-freeze stains all up & down it.
About a year latter coming back from a swap meet it started thumping & shaking. I found a separation in one of the tires so I replaced the whole set.
It is all original with 38,000 miles. It came with papers that show the mileage is actual. It needed very little work. I serviced and tuned it. Then I sold the 56.
I charged up the A/C & it works great. It leaked out a little the first year but has not lost any since. I still use R-12 in it. I have about 1 case left.
I just love this truck.
