'76 with factory bucket seats

I am in the process of acquiring a c10 that came with bucket seats/console and 454 engine. Just wondering if any of you know if this is a special, truck or just another square body that has a large cid engine?

Re: '76 with factory bucket seats

I don't know if I'd go so far as to say that it's anything special. But, personally the big block and the bucket seat interior are two pretty nice options in my opinion. In a few years, as this body style grows in popularity, I think they could have merit, but time will tell. Nice to see another local guy on this board. I live in Lawndale and work in cherryville, so maybe I'll see ya around. post us some pictures when you get time.

I don't think it's a special edition, but more of a customer ordered what he wanted kind of truck. Sounds very cool, and these trucks are climbing up the collectable ladder. So, that truck will be a nice one unlike most with the bench.

Re: '76 with factory bucket seats

Thanks for the response, I am just starting to take interest in the square bodies. I have focused on the 67-72's for years now. I have noticed the squares are starting to gain popularity. Strange though, seems the '85-'87's get more attention. I realize the fronts are different, but I think I like the two head light trucks a little better.

Where in Cherryville do you work? My boys played little league in Cherryville few years back.

Re: '76 with factory bucket seats

I work part-time at the AutoZone up there. I'm 50/50 on which front end is nicer. I like my 73 front setup that I've got on my 78, but I dont think my 87 would look right if it didn't have that squared off grill. Could have something to do with the 78 being lowered and the blazer being a 4x4 too.

Cool, I shop at that auto-zone sometimes. I usually go to the advance auto in Cherryville though. Side note I grew up in Lawndale, moved to Waco when I got married a log time ago😜
