Spotless 1976 Chevy C10 Silverado For Sale15
Square body trucks have become a hot commodity in the collector car world, and for good reason. You get all the cool of a vintage pickup or SUV, combined with the practicality and usefulness of a truck. Because of this, really great examples have become scarce. But, every now and then, you find an absolute gem like this 1976 Chevy C10 Silverado.
The original owner ordered this Chevy C10 with a heavy options list. It is the upscale Silverado version, equipped with the top-of-the-line engine for 1976, the 454 Big Block V8. It has two-tone tan paint, Deluxe interior with plush carpet, woodgrain dash and door panels, factory air conditioning, power brakes with front discs, the gauge package, and factory tinted glass. It has covered a scant 17,000 miles from new, and everything works as it should.
The exterior of this Chevy C10 is like a flashback. The two-tone paint scheme retains its original shine. The chrome front bumper still gleams, with no signs of pitting or patina. The rear step bumper is painted silver with a diamond plate pattern on the top. Painted steel wheels wear proper Silverado hubcaps and are wrapped with radial whitewall rubber. Stainless trim presents well. Glass and weatherstrip are both in surprisingly good nick.
Inside the Chevy C10, the Deluxe interior looks like it has never been used. There are no indications of wear to be found. The brown vinyl bench shows none of the drag wear usually associated with pickups that require a step-up/slide-in entry. Plush brown carpet looks showroom fresh. There are no cracks in the dash. The door map pocket elastic is still tight. Gauges are all still clear and bright, and the factory AM radio is still in the dash.
Under the hood of the Chevy C10 resides the 454 cubic-inch Big Block V8. Everything here appears to be as it left the factory. Some discoloration is present on the power brake booster. The balance of the engine bay is pure 1970s, with firewall spray markings, big spring hinges, and the jack and lug wrench on the passenger side fender.
This nearly-new 1976 Chevy C10 Silverado is on sale at Classic Cars of Sarasota.

It pretty much has it all for an old c in a wrapper + any part you may ever need will available in perpetuity.It would probably go for 20k more if it was a sb stepbox.
Must have been garaged since new. Very nice. When trucks were trucks.
My cousin had a 68 Chevy Mailbu, when this pickup came out he traded for this all new Chevy pickup. In my opinion it is one of the best styled Chevy pickups to date, My cousin never left his out in the drive way, used it daily and then in his garage. He washed and polished it so it still looked showroom new at 15 years old. He was then married with 2 sons, he and his wife decided it was time to get a sedan. What shocked me when they pulled into our driveway with a brand new Ford Taurus. I said, Warren what? He said yes he was a Chevy lover to the nth degree! They said, when GM downsized the Impala/Caprice the style really they did not care for that was why they tried a Ford, he never went back to Chevy, but still remember his Chevy pickup and how he had cared for it.
This is why I was a “Chevy Man” till this new truck came out. This is why Chevrolet tugs at heart strings and is part of the American consciousness . This is what Chevy should be striving to be again. Or at least offer it to those that still want it. I am A Ram owner now but I would come back if Chevrolet would too.
Yep nice looking well kept truck slick as can be , I wouldn’t want the 454 thou that’s the only thing wrong with it
Back then, the Big block still was a decent engine. In the 3/4 & 1 ton’s. it was beast. In the 1/2 tons, it was not very strong. But… it was STILL a BIG BLOCK!!!!!. “That’s all I have to say ’bout that”.
Oh how I miss my ’76 Silverado Stepside, 4×4. All Black. It was the first Silverado Stepside, the dealer had ever ordered. Nobody ordered a Stepside in Silverado trim. Had the 400 small block, 4:10 gears. And all the bells and whistles. Had full time 4×4 tho. Converted it with one of the first part time kits, by Rough Country. I miss that truck soooooo much. Trying to find it again. One can hope.
Very nice. I would take that over a new one today at my age. At least I can work on it. Lol. They definitely had the right body lines for two tone paint back then.
I had a 79 short box Bonanza package and a 5.7 – 350 under the hood. I was my first new vehicle purchased. Great memories Great truck. I wish I still had it.
Had a ’76 step side 2wd 4speed ,350 cu in. Black with factory X stripes. What a beast. Heavy duty susp. Don’t think you can get a new reg cab with top trim level today? Would be very rare if you could.
Needs a turbo 4 cyl. LOL. Sad thing is I bet you can’t buy a fully loaded reg cab 2021?
I had a 77, 350 auto and it was a fairly good truck though it had a long bed it was very practical but didn’t look nearly as good or proportioned as the short bed version would have. With 154,000 miles on it, Old Man RUST decided to settle in to the cab corners and it needed valve lifters (not enough oil changes I suspect) so I sold it for not much less than I paid for it.
By todays standards it had very poor gas millage and the new one’s seem to be infinitely better trucks, but non the less it was a Good Truck, Good Resale value for the time
Whoever had this truck had deep pockets, a ranch owner or traded in a muscle car for it. 454 C/K Silverados weren’t easy to come by.
$44,900 ask. I’m surprised it’s not more.
