The 1972 Chevy truck is a classic and was the last year for Chevy’s “Action Line” style of trucks. Since 1972 would see a major change in body style, the 72 Chevy truck was left almost completely the same as the 71 save the removal of some vinyl door options. I’m pretty fond these trucks because their straight, rigid body makes them look tough and ready for work. They also look really good with a lift kit installed which the following truck happens to have.
It may be a minor lift but this 1972 Chevy truck for sale on Craigslist looks pretty good for the bit of lift that it’s got. I also really like the wench attached to the front. I have no use for a wench but they always look cool and if have a lifted truck, you ought to use it and that means there is a possibility of either getting stuck in a mud pit or pulling someone else out of one.
The model of this 1972 Chevy pickup is a Custom Deluxe C10. It’s been taken really good care of and only has 68,500 miles on it. This may be the reason why most of its parts are still factory. The 350 engine was rebuilt but it’s also the original engine. 1972 Chevy truck parts can be found on various websites so if one these parts brakes it can be replaced, which they will, because that’s life. My father once told me that day you buy a car is the day you are in debt for the rest of your life. So it goes.
I was happy to find the original bench seat is still in good shape as is the rest of the interior. I’m currently starting a letter campaign to petition the automotive companies to bring back big bench seats but I don’t think I will succeed. Those damn individual seats separated by their fancy cup-holders and center consoles are just too popular. Now I ask you, “Where is the intimacy?” I guess it’s gone. So it goes.
Last but not leas is the rebuilt factory 350 engine. Final proof that this truck has been well cared for. It’s not uncommon to open the hood on one of these trucks and see nothing but rust that defies all logic by still running as a capable engine. So it’s nice to see a good looking engine here. 1972 Chevy trucks were a great model year so if you think $1200 grand is worth it, make a trip to Mitchell South Dakota and pick this one up.
