If you love the look of the classic Chevy Square Body (ironically originally named the “Rounded Line” by Chevrolet when launched) pickup converted to an air-suspended street machine, but don’t have the time or skills to build one yourself then this may be the truck for you. Posted in August 2020 on Craigslist in Valencia, Pennsylvania (Pittsburgh) is this 1972 custom Chevrolet C10 street machine with only 2,500 miles on a fresh build completed this past spring. The private seller proudly states his custom C10 “would drive cross country with comfort and ease.” Priced at a you-can’t-replicate-it-for-this price of $27,500, when compared against the stock values listed in the Hagerty Insurance Online Valuation Tool, the private seller has his Square Body priced between the #1 “Concours” appraisal of $33,100 and the #2 “Excellent” estimate of $21,800.
We really can’t add anything other than if your in-person inspection confirms this fresh build has been thoroughly sorted, we wish you good luck with the purchase!
