All Orange 1963 Chevrolet C10 Would Blind You in the Sunlight

There’s probably no other pickup truck out there that attracts as much attention from the custom industry as the Chevrolet C10.

Part of the C/K series of trucks introduced by GM for both the bowtie and GMC brands, the family was kept in production for close to half a century, until today’s big boys like the Silverado came into play.

Born in 1959, at the time when America’s craving for pickup trucks was beginning to take off, the line came with its share of firsts in the industry, but that’s probably not why one version of the C/K, the C10, is so appreciated by the custom industry.

The main reason is, perhaps, the fact that these trucks are easy to work with, they look great even in stock form, and more importantly can be turned into anything the imagination comes up with.

This pure American pickup truck has been made and remade time and time again by garages across the U.S., with some changed radically compare to their stock form, and others less so.

The one in the gallery above comes from 1963, which makes it part of the first generation. It too has been modified, albeit less extensively than some other projects we’ve seen over the years.

The body has been kept close to its stock form, mounted on top of 15-inch wheels, but wrapped in an orange so intense it completely blurs the background. Obviously, the bed at the rear has been redone in wood.

On the inside, the bench comes in a black upholstery and sits in front of a dashboard that is equally as intense as the exterior. The dashboard supports a set of Sunpro gauges and a JVC radio linked to an aftermarket audio system.

The engine bay at the front houses a 250ci (4.0-liter) inline 6 of undisclosed power, linked to a 3-speed manual transmission.

The orange C10 is for sale somewhere in Michigan, priced at under $20,000.
