The L-71 is fitted with solid lifters, high compression pop up pistons, steel crank, 4 bolt mains and triple Holley two-barrel carburetors.

Engine: 350 CID V8
Transmission: Turbo 350
Mileage: 6500 ( since rebuilt )

This beautiful Red 2 owner 1967 Chevrolet C10 is for Sale in our Louisville Showroom. A new, more modern look came in 1967, along with a new nickname: "Action Line". It was with this revision of the C/K truck that General Motors began to add comfort and convenience items to a vehicle line that had previously been for work purposes alone. The majority of 10 series and some 20 series Chevrolet trucks from 1967 to 1972 were equipped with a coil spring trailing arm rear suspension, which greatly improved the ride over traditional leaf springs. However, the leaf spring rear suspension was still available on those trucks, and standard on 30 series trucks. This beauty has been treated to a frame on restoration 5 years ago. When restored, the front fenders were replaced, and a light weight hood was added. The wood floor of the bed is in excellent shape. The stainless strips really set the wood off, so that you are sure to notice! The interior looks fresh, there are no rips or tears. The center console from a later model truck adds some functionality and makes for a nice accent. Under the hood, this C10 is equipped with the iconic Chevrolet 350 CID small block V8. The engine has been matched to the very reliable Tuirbo Hydramatic 350 three speed automatic transmission. The rear end has been loaded with 4:88 gears, making this truck a quick launcher off the line and a tire burner to boot! Options on this 1967 Chevrolet C10 include: Air Conditioning (needs to be charged), AM/FM Radio with CD Player, Cloth Interior, Power Steering, Power Brakes, Tilt Steering Wheel, Rally Wheels with Raised White Letter Radial Tires.
