CRATE 350 V8, 4-SPEED, NICE LIFT, LONGTUBE/DUALS, PWR FRNT DISCS/STEERING, TOUGH
If you've been looking for a rugged, go-anywhere, square-jawed truck with all the goodies, you've just found a great choice. This 1984 Chevrolet K10 4x4 has been nicely upgraded and looks fantastic in burgundy paint. With plenty of power, heavy-duty off-road gear underneath, and a comfortable interior, you just can't buy more truck for your dollar than this.
Nearly 40 years later, these trucks STILL look fantastic. Forget aerodynamics for a moment, and take a good look at the angles on this truck, which was designed to work for a living, not sip gas. Always a clean, southern machine, it sports laser-straight body panels and paint that shines up well but is still prepared to repel mud and dirt from playing outside. It doesn't appear to have ever been a work truck, and the stepside bed/regular cab models often enjoy the best care because they're personal vehicles. The stepside bed always looks muscular and this truck is loaded with extras, including a cowl-induction hood, roll bar with KC sport lights, and a set off steps to help with climbing into this tall off-roader. The original chrome and trim looks great, although there's a fresh grille and clear headlights to give it a slightly updated look. And it's extremely cool to see real wood planks in the bed as late as 1984, a nod to tradition that still works. Better still, they're not so nice that you'll be afraid to use this truck as intended. Get in and get dirty!
The factory black vinyl bench seat interior remains in place and its current condition tells you all you need to know about the easy life this truck has lived. Aside from some very light discoloration, the upholstery remains excellent, with no rips or tears, and matching black carpets make it feel a bit civilized. The gauges are original and fully functional, and yes, that's a 4-speed shifter with a Hurst cue ball on top, making this 4x4 a lot of fun to drive. It's light on options, but it does have power steering and power front disc brakes, which are much appreciated with those massive tires. There's also a new AM/FM/CD stereo head unit in the dash, and for open-air cruising on mild days, nothing beats a pickup with a sliding rear window.
The engine is a 350 cubic inch crate motor with a bunch of reputable horsepower-building parts. Edelbrock supplied the carburetor, Weiand supplied the intake manifold, and a set of long-tube headers and Flowmaster mufflers really make it sound nasty. The engine bay itself is reasonbly clean with body-colored paint on the block and some chrome dress-up, and all the mechanical pieces are in excellent shape. The aforementioned 4-speed manual transmission is linked to a 2-speed transfer case, which feeds both axles when you're off-roading for maximum traction. Underneath, the chassis is solid and highly original, augmented by a modest lift that gives this truck an impressive presence over the other cars on the road. Massive 35x12.5-15 BFGoodrich All-Terrain T/A tires are wrapped around a set of factory-style Rally wheels for an awesome look.
This cool off-roader is ready to hit the trails or head to the job site where it will perform equally well. Call today!
