Before you and up for bid is my 1966 Chevrolet C10 short bed stepside pick up. The particulars of the truck are as follows:
* Genuine former U.S. ARMY truck, serviced out of Ft. Carson, Colorado. NOT A CLONE!

* Solid truck, floors, frame, frame rails, bed area, door skins, rockers, drip rails, cab corners, tailgate, firewall, fenders, etc. As mentioned, there is some light filler repair, however, one can go over the the entire truck with a magnet and it will adhere to 90% of the body.

* Good steering wheel, minor age cracks
* Tail gate opens and closes properly
The bed is 6'6" in length, 4' in width. The original wood is still in place, however there is presently a thin gauge of metal tacked in place.

At 53 model years of age the ARMY C10 looks, runs and drives great! It is a cool classic truck that always receives nice compliments and the "thumbs up" everywhere it goes.
It is suitable as is as a daily driver, a pile the grand kids in for ice cream runs, evening cruises, or an excellent platform to take to the next level.
Last year of the first generation C10's, these are desirable trucks. Concours examples are readily priced in the $40-50K range. Check for yourself. I'm thinking under $10K and will offer it at a true NO RESERVE auction. Often I see no "no reserve" and yet a high number is required to get the party started. Here the fun starts with a bid of the year the truck was born.
You are bidding to purchase the C10, not to be the first to "look at it'. Thank you.
Inspections are welcome and will be facilitated to the best of my ability prior to the auction concluding.
The truck and I are presently located in S.W. Florida. (Naples/Ft. Myers vicinity)
Transportation/shipping/delivery are the sole responsibility of the buyer. I own a Hodges Hauler transport. Delivery is possible within the lower 48 states in time for Christmas for $1000.00. (non-negotiable)
While I believe that the C10 could be driven home safely to anywhere in America, I don't advocate it. old trucks are just that...old. Miles from home in an unfamiliar location is not the place to become acquainted with your new old truck. Get it home first...I always say.
If you choose to fly in and drive home, I will gladly pick you up from the International Airport in Ft. Myers or the regional airport in Punta Gorda.
A $1000.00 initial payment is due and payable within 24 hours of auction close VIA PayPal. NO EXCEPTIONS.
The balance is then due and payable within 7 days thereafter under condition and arrangement made between myself and the buyer. The balance is to be paid VIA a legitimate bank to bank wire transfer as it provides a documented record of the transaction for both parties.
I DO NOT accept PayPal for the entire purchase, only the initial $1000.00 payment.
If you are to fly in and drive home or arrive to trailer the truck yourself, I will accept cash in person for the balance provided that it is done within 7 days of auction close window. It you need some additional time to make arrangements for pick up, I will work with you as long as the truck has been paid for in full.
Clear Colorado title. The truck and the title to the truck will not be released until payment in full has been received. Upon receipt of payment in full, I will overnight VIA FEDEX the title and bill of sale to the new owner. If you are to fly in and drive home or trailer the truck, I will offer the option of hand delivering these documents to you upon your arrival.

I am a legitimate seller simply seeking a legitimate buyer. I will not waste your time, please do not waste mine.
I am not a dealer, I am a collector/hobbyist. Since 2007, I have sold more than 30 of my personal vehicles VIA eBay. Almost all have had their expectations exceeded. I am lengthy in my description in order to provide one with a thorough and accurate representation of the vehicle in order to make an informed decision. Where older collector vehicles are concerned, condition is open to interpretation. I have represented the C10 accurately. Please have realistic expectations for a 53 year old truck. Thank you.

eBay provides for 24 pictures. I have selected pictures that best present a concise overview of the truck. If you would like any area specific pictures simply ask for them.
I answer my phone quicker than I respond to e-mail. Call me directly with any questions. If you reach voice messaging, leave me a brief message, a contact number and I will return your call promptly.

Buyers from the U.S., Canada, the UK, Europe, Russia, Australia, and New Zealand are welcome and encouraged to bid with confidence. If the truck is sold to an international buyer, I am available for reasonable expenses to transport the truck to the requisite port.
This is a genuine former ARMY service truck with a unique service history, good luck finding another.
It is a great novelty and an affordable truck that can be driven just as it is...perhaps as a promotional vehicle for your business.
An ideal memory lane "toy" for your family veteran, or active service member that may have even been stationed at Ft. Carson during the mid 60's, or for any military enthusiast.NOTE: the door stars are magnetic and easily removed.
Thanks for looking, good luck when you bid and MERRY CHRISTMAS!
