SHARP SHORT BED CHEVY! 305 V8, AUTO, PWR STEER/BRAKES, FRONT DISC, GREAT DRIVER

If you grew up during the '70s, you'll be relieved to know that Chevy trucks are finally getting their due for something that we've always known: they're just flat-out cool. Basic and rugged, sure, but also handsome in a leathery, hardened kind of way that is all business. Dressing them up with beautiful paint and a potent V8 sure helps, and in the case of this short bed/regular cab 1978 Chevrolet Scottsdale K10 4x4, it shows that there's just no way to build an unattractive one. They ALWAYS look good.

At first glance, this might just look like another nicely preserved Chevy C/K-series pickup. But get a little closer and you'll discover that the bright blue finish is quite nicely done with a deep shine that looks great on this vintage pickup. And if you're going to look that closely, you need to nail down the bodywork, and this one doesn't look like it's ever had to work for a living. It was resprayed several years ago, so there are signs of use and age, but you won't be unhappy with this one in your garage or when you're getting thumbs up on the road. Even the bed is impressively straight, protected inside with a spray-in bedliner that can stand up to loads of abuse. After all, it IS a ... Please ask for the full description.

SHARP SHORT BED CHEVY! 305 V8, AUTO, PWR STEER/BRAKES, FRONT DISC, GREAT DRIVER

If you grew up during the '70s, you'll be relieved to know that Chevy trucks are finally getting their due for something that we've always known: they're just flat-out cool. Basic and rugged, sure, but also handsome in a leathery, hardened kind of way that is all business. Dressing them up with beautiful paint and a potent V8 sure helps, and in the case of this short bed/regular cab 1978 Chevrolet Scottsdale K10 4x4, it shows that there's just no way to build an unattractive one. They ALWAYS look good.

At first glance, this might just look like another nicely preserved Chevy C/K-series pickup. But get a little closer and you'll discover that the bright blue finish is quite nicely done with a deep shine that looks great on this vintage pickup. And if you're going to look that closely, you need to nail down the bodywork, and this one doesn't look like it's ever had to work for a living. It was resprayed several years ago, so there are signs of use and age, but you won't be unhappy with this one in your garage or when you're getting thumbs up on the road. Even the bed is impressively straight, protected inside with a spray-in bedliner that can stand up to loads of abuse. After all, it IS a pickup truck, right? A bit of stainless dress-up in the grille and headlight surrounds up front, a big chrome front bumper, and oversized blacked-out side mirrors and a matching rear bumper all give it a flashy look without diluting its heavy-duty attitude.

A blue interior works well with the blue paint, and the saddle-blanket seat cover on the bench is a throwback to the era when this truck was brand new. All the stuff inside is a bit dated and shows some signs of use, but it all remains in good order and accurately replicates when you might have received when you ordered a new Scottsdale back in the '70s. The instrument panel is fitted with a comprehensive array of factory gauges that are a little faded but still keep an eye on the upgraded engine up front. Matching blue door panels are in good shape, as is the sturdy dash pad, and the plush carpets that line the floor neatly insulate the cabin from the outside world. Upgrades include a drop-in center console, an auxiliary oil pressure gauge, and thick rubber floor mats, and although this truck was born with a stereo and factory A/C system, new equipment will be needed to get everything back up to par.

This truck was originally powered by a 305 cubic inch V8, and although we're not sure if it's still the original block, a 305 V8 (aka a 5.0L) is exactly what is under the hood and running strong today. Topped by a 4-barrel carburetor and stock intake, it's a torquey, eager small block whether you're on-road or off. Aside from an aftermarket Edelbrock air cleaner, it looks mostly stock under the hood and keeps a low profile, and when you're just driving around and it runs superbly, as you might expect from a well-cared for hauler. There's a giant radiator up front to keep the small block from getting cranky and factory exhaust manifolds feed a pair of Flowmaster mufflers that give it a burly soundtrack to match its look. The chassis is pretty original so it shows that natural patina, but you can easily see that this truck lived someplace warm its entire life. A TH350 3-speed automatic transmission feeds the original transfer case and axles, and the manual locking hubs mean someone was serious about off-road traction, and power steering and power front disc brakes vastly improve the experience. Factory polished wheels look great and help offset the weight of those big 33x12.5x15 BFGoodrich T/A white-letter radials.

So, for all you fans of big, burly '70s pickups, this one offers great looks, strong V8 power, and a dash of practicality, too. Call now!
