|Odometer reading||784 miles|
|Estimate||£16,000 - £20,000|
On 3rd November 1911, Swiss race car driver and automotive engineer Louis Chevrolet co-founded the Chevrolet Motor Company in Detroit with William C. Durant and investment partners William Little and Dr. Edwin R. Campbell. Actual design work for the first Chevy, the costly Series C Classic Six, was drawn up by Etienne Planche, following instructions from Louis. The first C prototype was ready months before Chevrolet was actually incorporated. However the first actual production wasn't until the 1913 model. So in essence there were no 1911 or 1912 production models, only the one pre-production model was made and fine tuned throughout the early part of 1912. Louis Chevrolet had differences with Durant over design and in 1914 sold Durant his share in the company. By 1916, Chevrolet was profitable enough with successful sales of the cheaper Series 490 to allow Durant to repurchase a controlling interest in General Motors. After the deal was completed in 1917, Durant became president of General Motors, and Chevrolet was merged into GM as a separate division.
The C/K model range was Chevrolet and GMC's full-size pickup truck line, running from 1960 until 2002 in the United States. This C10 Pick-up was registered in 1972 and has recently been restored to a high standard. The blue paintwork is unmarked and the blue and cream trim is in immaculate condition and complements the exterior colour perfectly. The engine is a later type 325ci (5300cc) V8 Vortec fuel injected unit and sounds superb. The meticulous vendor has advised she drives exceedingly well with no known faults. Shod on virtually new Cooper Cobra Radial G/T tyres, this Chevrolet Pick-up is supplied with a UK V5 registration document and a current MoT test certificate. A handsome, yet perfectly useable Pickup truck and one that will draw admirers wherever she is driven.
DUE TO CIRCUMSTANCES BEYOND OUR CONTROL, THIS LOT HAS HAD TO BE WITHDRAWN.
