Good running '72 C-10 original shortbed. Badged as a Cheyenne from previous owner. Has passed inspection in NJ when it had to but NJ no longer inspects '95 and older vehicles. Has some surface rust and poor prep around rain gutter(bubbling paint), rockers and cab corners done by previous owner.Floors solid. Will need door bottoms one day. Drip leak under dash passengerside when it rains. Firewall in engine bay has two rot spots. I added a 1.25" front sway bar, AC Delco starter and brace, electric choke, HEI+wires, battery, new fuel tank behind seat, wiper delay, new tires, gas shocks, Fumoto oil drain valve, trans filter+pan gasket(TH 350), passenger door hinge pins and bushings, locking gas cap, three point seat belts, carb rebuilt, valve cover gaskets. Truck registered and ready to test drive. Drove truck from North Carolina when I bought it. Has air but is not factory, previous owner added it and it did blow cold but has since gone warm. TBJ engine code on the 350, from the eighties. Aftermarket dual exhaust from the rams horns, no leaks. Disc up front. Truck is a great platform for <$10,000, road ready. Have evidence the truck spent it's life in Georgia and Virginia before ending up in North Carolina. Black paint covers Ochre original paint. Sorry, no SPID. Asking $9500.00

That's ROT, If you took an Awl to them bubbles in the paint you would quickly find out the rust is way past the "surface" stage. The truck had rust/rot before it was painted black & it has only grown/gotten worse since then.

Agree with the above...the paint is hiding some issues there....

Shame,as I will be in the market for one of these....love the years of these C10s...

Otherwise, it's a nice looking truck....

In Southern California, you could hardly give that truck away with that much rust.

I love those, used to have a '71 GMC C1500 longbed-but there's no way that's a $9500 truck. Better to head down to the Southwest and look for one there.
