305 CI,ORIGINAL COLORS, FACTORY HITCH, 6" SUSPENSION LIFT, SLIDING REAR WINDOW!
This 1984 Chevrolet K10 is a nice 4x4 pickup. Nothing radical, just a well-executed suspension lift, a smart-running small block V8, and a sharp two-tone paint job that sticks to the factory recipe. This is simply a lot of truck for not a lot of money.
You already know we love these trucks around our showroom and we probably sell more of them than just about anyone else. So it makes sense that when a nice one shows up, everyone kind of takes notice. This black and silver K10 has that rugged, square-jawed look that makes these trucks the latest and greatest collector-value haulers. Recently repainted, there's clear signs everywhere you look that someone has put some serious love into this truck. Is it perfect? No. Is it awesome? Yes. This truck has a killer look, and the overall presentation is just right - not so nice that you'll be afraid to hit the trails with it, but when you get home and hose it off, it'll look good enough to go out to dinner that night, or creep proudly throught the local cruise night. The flashy red stripe between the two primary colors adds a much-needed dose of color that also makes the big 4x4 look racy, not bulky, and highlights the truck's no-nonsense profile. Chrome bumpers with big bumper guards up front, step plates, and oversized mirrors make it practical as well as attractive and you can tell just by looking in the bed that this truck has probably never had to work for a living.
The gray interior is typical GM no-nonsense, with a wide bench seat, a handsome wrap-around dash, and plenty of creature comforts. That's a new seat cover in a nice-looking tweed fabric, but it appears that the door panels and perhaps even the carpets are nicely preserved originals. The gauges are also original and monitor all the engine's vitals, all surrounded by a nice-looking brushed stainless dashboard. A Grant GT steering wheel is a bit flashier than the original but has a butch truck-like look that suits this big 4x4 just fine. Options include power windows and locks, cruise control, a tilt column, and a newer AM/FM/CD stereo system from JVC. Chevy bowtie logo floor mats are a welcome site if you plan on heading into the dirt and with a sliding rear window, it's comfortable inside without the A/C running on all but the hottest days.
For power, this Chevy relies on a tried-and-true 305 cubic inch V8. It's fairly stock, so reliability is not compromised and it still starts, idles, and drives pretty much like the factory intended. The engine bay is incredibly clean, suggesting that this truck has never really ventured too far off road, and thanks to a factory towing package, it's already equipped with a big radiator and other heavy-duty equipment. The 6-inch lift kit underneath is all springs - no blocks or other halfway solutions - and it sits high enough to climb over boulders without hurting anything vital underneath. The transmission is a 700R4 4-speed automatic overdrive, so it's actually reasonable on the highway, and the two-speed transfer case and heavy-duty axles make it invincible in the slippery stuff. Long-tube headers and a custom dual exhaust system probably add a few horsepower and give it an awesome V8 soundtrack, and those flashy aluminum wheels with giant 35x12.50-15 BFG Mud-Terrain radials look exactly right.
Nothing radical here, just a nicely finished truck with some smart, well-executed upgrades. If your tastes run more towards playing in the dirt, then this Chevy deserves a closer look. Call today!
