RED OVER GRAY RESTOMOD, LOADED W/FACTORY OPTIONS, 17" TORQUE THRUST, STAGGERED
Super clean and ready to rock, this 1984 Chevrolet C10 pickup is a fun cruiser that's also extremely practical. With the most popular short bed and regular cab configuration, it's sporty, but still capable of hauling the big loads when you need it. If ever there was a time to make your hobby vehicle do double duty, it's today, and this bright red pickup is as at home at the cruise night as it is at the garden center.
Trucks are a booming segment of the hobby, and bring a very reasonable price of admission. However, the flip side is that finding a good, clean truck that hasn't been worked to within an inch of its life can be challenging. It appears that this truck has never been a work vehicle, and the condition of the super straight bodywork-particularly the bed-bears this out. With factory-quality gaps and panel alignment throughout, it what you're looking for in one of these trucks, and the paint quality suggests that someone truly loved this one. A cowl-induction hood always adds a sporty countenance to any Chevy, and a lot of the chrome and trim, including the side mirrors, has been shaved to give it a very sleek custom look. This one also offers a drop-in bed liner, so you shouldn't be afraid to put it to work now and then.
The interior has seen a recent freshening that includes new door panels, dash pad, and a gray cloth seat cover. The seat remains firm and comfortable, and the commanding view from the cockpit is one that many folks appreciate only after they've experience a full-sized truck. The gauges are surrounded by a carbon-fiber applique for a custom look, and you'll note that this truck is equipped with power windows and locks, a tilt wheel, factory A/C, as well as an upgraded AM/FM/cassette stereo system. A pair of Auto Meter auxiliary gauges hangs under the dash in the usual spot, monitoring oil pressure and temperature. There's more carbon-fiber on the door panels and the leather-wrapped steering wheel is an OEM unit from a late-model, so it looks right.
Power comes from Chevy's evergreen 350 cubic inch V8 topped by a 4-barrel carburetor and driving a 700R4 4-speed automatic transmission. The engine bay is clean and serviceable, showing signs of correct maintenance throughout its life. A few choice upgrades enhance performance and make it entertaining to drive, and includes things like the Edelbrock intake, Holley carburetor, and a set of long-tube headers feeding a true dual exhaust system with Flowmaster mufflers. Thanks to the overdrive transmission, this truck is a nice highway cruiser that gets surprisingly good gas mileage for a full-sized pickup. Underneath, the chassis is quite solid, with the original suspension lowered a bit to give it that aggressive rake, which really emphasizes the flashy 17-inch Torque Thrust wheels and staggered 235/55/17 front and 275/60/17 rear performance radials.
Trucks like this represent a very reasonably-priced way to get into the hobby, and this one is ready to cruise today. It's flashy without being too obvious about it, the interior is comfortable, and you just can't beat a small-block Chevy for reliability. Call today!
