1978 Chevy Big 10 Step Side – 350 V8, Auto, Lowered, Woodbed, Custom Exhaust, Original Paint w/ Outstanding Patina!
1978 Chevy Big 10 Step Side – Thoroughly redesigned from stem to stern, the all-new third generation C/K trucks for 1973 proved to be the longest lived series in Chevrolet’s history and the three-box styling has proved quite popular since. Aside from wheels and hubcaps, there really wasn’t much that was round anywhere in the design other than the body sides that featured a sculpted character line with a central plateau panel as well as curved side glass, a first on a GM truck. Trim lines were also revamped, ranging from the entry-level Custom to the Custom Deluxe, Cheyenne and top-end Cheyenne Super. They were shuffled for 1975, with the Scottsdale moniker replacing the Cheyenne Super as the top-of-the-line package, while the Custom series was deleted. The next year, Chevy was back up to four trim lines with the addition of the Silverado at the top of the series. By and large, this remained the trim hierarchy for the remainder of series production. In response to the introduction of the Ford F-150, the Chevrolet “Big 10” high-GVWR 1⁄2-ton was introduced for 1976.
At Texas Trucks & Classics we have a real love or all classic GM trucks. While some favor the fleetsides, we think the stepsides look amazing especially with a drop and oversized wheels! A trait that is getting and harder to find are trucks that are still wear their original paint after 45 years. This super sexy Big 10 patina step side checks off both these boxes and is a real head-turner! The original interior is in great shape and even the factory wood bed is still solid and intact. Features and options include; 350 V8, Aluminum Radiator, Dual Electric Fans, Auto, Power Steering & Brakes, Lowered Suspension, Wood bed, Custom Exhaust, Retro AM/FM Radio, Tilt Steering, 20″/22″ Billet Specialty Magnito Wheels, and Thick 245/40 R20 (rear – 285/40 R22) Tires. With only 79k miles, a ton of originality and a great stance, this Big 10 is one of the nicest stepsides on the market!
