STUNNING RESTORATION, 350 TBI V8, 700R4, LONGTUBE/DUALS, R134 A/C, PS/PB, A+!!
This big 1987 Chevrolet K10 4x4 has a lot going for it. Black paint, a great powertrain, 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 intimidating black paint job, which makes this big truck look nasty. At once unique and timeless, this truck was never a beater so it still looks quite good. The sheetmetal is straight and clean, and the Chevy's squared-off looks have aged very, very well. Look closely and you'll see the paint is in great shape, with a nice gloss and no areas where it needs attention, and with a simple strip of stainless down the flanks, it looks just the way the factory did it. All the original remains, including the original grille, bumpers, and even the stand-up hood ornament that dresses it up a bit. The bed is protected by a spray-in bed liner and a set of chrome bed rails that really look great. There's also a heavy-duty rear bumper and a sliding rear window provides great ventilation on warm days.
Gray cloth covers the stock bench seat, and the almost entirely original 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. The original gauges are big, bright, and easy to read, with a factory steering wheel to help guide it down the trail. It also sports factory A/C with an R134a refrigerant upgrade, plus an AM/FM/cassette stereo down low in the dash. Everything feels well-assembled and tough, which you'd expect from a truck, but it never feels like a working-class vehicle. It's still comfortable enough to use every day.
With a throttle-body-injected 350 cubic inch V8 under the hood, there aren't many places this brute can't go. The rebuilt engine from LKQ has about 15,000 miles and seems to be almost entirely stock save for the long-tube headers and an electric fan on the radiator. Nicely finished, 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, so it runs happily on pump gas, idles well, pulls hard, and thanks to that electric fan, 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 factory 4-wheel-drive suspension gives it its towering presence, there's a great-sounding Flowmaster dual exhaust system, and with a steering stabilizer up front it tracks straight and doesn't wander like many 4x4 pickups. Factory Rally-style wheels wear giant 32x11.5-15 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!
