SOUTHERN TRUCK, ALSO-STOCK, RESPRAY/FRESH INTERIOR, 305 V8, AUTO, CLEAN 4X4!!
This big 1986 Chevrolet K10 4x4 has a lot going for it. A great color combination, V8 power, an overdrive transmission, and, well, who doesn't love a brute like this? With go-anywhere capabilities but the comfort and reliability of a daily driver, this might just be the ultimate pickup.
The first thing you notice is the handsome dark blue paint. Stylish and timeless, the paint went on just a few years ago, but this truck was never a beater. The sheetmetal is straight and clean, and the Chevy's squared-off looks have aged very, very well. It has been recently buffed and detailed, so there's a nice shine that's probably at least as nice as the factory could offer in 1986. All the factory trim was reinstalled after the repaint, too, and they refrained from going crazy with the modifications. The stock grille, big mirrors, and stainless side trim are just where the factory put them and a set of bed rails look great and offer a bit of practicality, too. The bed is in fantastic shape, more evidence that this truck never had to work too hard, there's a fresh chrome diamond-plate rear bumper, and a sliding rear window provides great ventilation on warm days.
Comfortable blue fabric covers the stock bench seat, and the mostly new interior doesn't need a lot of flash to be functional. The lower half of the dash is painted to match the body, which is a nice touch, and upscale door panels, carpeted floors, and a bunch of comfort and convenience options make this as much luxury truck as commercial hauler. Almost everything you can touch is new, including the seat cover, carpets, dash pad, and door panels, and it's quite nicely done. A sheet of brushed stainless frames the original gauges, with a factory steering wheel atop the original tilt column to help guide it down the trail. It also sports factory A/C with an R134a refrigerant upgrade, power windows and locks, plus the original AM/FM stereo down low in the dash. Climbing in this truck should feel familiar and it's nice to see they went the extra mile to make it look right.
With a strong-running 305 cubic inch V8 under the hood, there aren't many places this brute can't go. Freshly tuned, the engine bay looks like someone's been looking after it all its life, and if this truck was intended to get dirty, someone was certainly fastidious about cleaning it up afterwards. There are no radical modifications beyond some chrome dress-up and dual exhaust, so it runs happily on pump gas, idles well, pulls hard, and doesn't overheat during slow-speed crawling. There's plenty of torque to turn those big tires, and thanks to a 700R4 4-speed automatic overdrive transmission, it cruises quietly and comfortably and fuel mileage goes from abominable to adequate, which is about all you can expect in a big machine like this. The suspension seems to be stock, but it's still quite competent, there's a great-sounding Flowmaster dual exhaust system, and the steering feels tight, not sloppy like on many other 4x4s. Factory Rally-style wheels wear beefy BFGoodrich off-road tires that look great, ride well, and claw through the dirt with ease.
If you're a fan of off-roading, this is a finished truck ready to enjoy, and even if you just like the look, this one is incredibly civilized. Call today!
