Most big, off-road trucks have led hard lives, but this 1969 Chevrolet K10 4x4 is shockingly clean, frame-off restored, and in excellent condition. Someone has invested a huge pile of cash into building a serious off-roader, yet it appears that it has never driven on anything more aggressive than someone's front yard. Loaded with the right options and dialed-in wherever you go, this is the ONE. If you're in the market for a high-end vintage 4x4 that can just about go anywhere you darn please, stop looking, because they don't get much better than this.
First off, dig that killer two-tone Dark Green Metallic and White paint job. It's not only a great color combination for a pickup, but beautifully rendered in modern paints so that is has a gloss and depth that belies this truck's blue-collar roots. For a truck designed to play in the dirt, it's exceptionally well done and as I said, it doesn't look like it's done much rough work since it was completed just 592 miles ago. Every panel looks factory fresh, with no signs of critical damage or little "oops!" issues from heavy mudding. In fact, this might be the cleanest C/K pickup we've seen in a long time, and there's got to be at least twice the asking price wrapped up in its construction. There are no goofy rubber fender flares, no tubular steps or bed-mounted roll bars, and the factory bumpers have been retained fore and aft. Everything fits together well, the panels are properly aligned, and, well, this sucker just doesn't look or act like it has been out stomping around in the dirt. It's seriously straight and clean. You also get the neat black-and-chrome trim moldings adorning this truck, running lights atop the cab, and shiny heavy-duty bumpers fore and aft. Out back, the bed is just so beautifully finished you'll think twice about throwing stuff in there.
Once you climb up there, you'll find a beautifully restored interior, featuring new components everywhere you look, all working together to provide a vintage yet very comfortable place to be. The factory bench is still in place, but it's been wrapped in a fresh black vinyl seat that features the 'Western Scroll' trim often found on higher trim levels such as this CST. That scroll is continued onto the door panels, the black carpet below is plush and protected by matching mats, and up above the headliner is taut and helps to refine the vintage yet comfortable interior. The tilt steering column wears a later-model Chevrolet steering wheel, but it looks right, and the dash is full of original CST gauges (including a rare factory tachometer!) with crisp markings and clear lenses. Other goodies include an Old Aire A/C system with modern components (including a brand new Sanden compressor and R134a refrigerant) working under the hood and an updated Alpine AM/FM/CD head unit in the factory dash slot. Get in and turn the key, the K10 is ready to rock!
To get those big tires moving takes serious horsepower, and what better than a small block Chevy V8? Extensively built, the block started life as a '511' 4-bolt main 400 V8, and was then bored .030 over to a 406 displacement, and then equipped with a solid lifter roller cam, World Products Sportsman iron heads, full roller rockers, anodized aluminum rocker stud girdles, and a Pete Jackson gear drive. The flame-accented air cleaner and valve covers quickly give away that this is no stocker, and up top there's an Edelbrock RPM intake manifold and QuickFuel 4-barrel carburetor, as well as an MSD ignition system to light it up. Almost everything under the hood is new and the finish quality is as nice as the rest of the truck, so you can show it or drive it with equal confidence. The transmission is a quick-shifting 700R4 4-speed automatic driving a NP205 two-speed transfer case and rugged axles fore and aft (GM 10 bolt front; 12 bolt rear; both equipped with Eaton lockers and geared at 3.73), and it all looks brand new underneath. Ceramic coated long-tube headers feed a throaty H-pipe Flowmaster dual exhaust system that sounds great and there's a 6-inch Rough Country lift kit in there to help with the rough stuff, but not so tall that it's going to cause problems on regular roads. Helping the truck achieve its impressive altitude are a set of handsome Alcoa-style wheels wearing 33x15.50 Super Swamper off-road tires.
There's just no way someone built a truck this pretty then took it out in the field where it could get hurt. But that certainly doesn't mean you can't have a ton of fun with it yourself. Call today!
