Who didn't want one of these trucks, lifted and sitting tall, back when they were new? Well, it's time to relive the past with this 1984 Chevrolet K10 pickup, which has obviously enjoyed a rather significant makeover. With in-your-face looks and go-anywhere capabilities, it's big fun on or off the pavement.
Camaros wore the Sunset Orange paint pretty well, and it looks equally good on the giant Chevy 4x4. It was repainted quite recently and judging from the details and the hard-to-reach areas of the body, it was a high-end job that covered every nook and cranny. You can't argue with how good it looks on the clean, chiseled lines of the K10 and the finish quality is on-par with the build quality of the rest of the truck. It's shiny, well-applied, and covering some straight sheetmetal, but at the same time, it's not so flawless that you're afraid to use this truck to its full potential. Most of the trim has been shaved or modified, including a billet grille, a custom front bumper with built-in fog lights, LED taillights, and a heavy-duty rear bumper under the tailgate. The bed has been fortified with a spray-in bedliner, just in case you're hauling some gear or supplies on the weekends.
The black and gray interior is largely stock and for 1984, you'll be impressed by the luxury accommodations. The wide bench seat wears a more recent cover that's in great shape and the door panels are custom pieces that match beautifully and include built-in speakers. This truck is also great to drive thanks to a modern A/C system with R134a refrigerant inside so it's reliable and easy to service, and there's a set of auxiliary gauges under the dash. A new Pioneer AM/FM/CD/iPod/ stereo lives in the dash and powers speakers throughout, including Polk-Momo tweeters to really make it sound crisp. A sliding rear window works in concert with the vent windows to make the interior pleasant on warmer days and after you've used it, you'll probably wonder how you got by without it.
The condition of the sparkling engine bay suggests that while this truck looks off-road ready, it hasn't spent much time there. The 350 cubic inch V8 sports a bunch of dress-up, as well as improvements like a 4-barrel carburetor and matching intake manifold, a serpentine belt drive system for the accessories, and a growling dual exhaust system with long-tube headers. It was all painted Chevy Orange to give it an OEM look, although by 1984, blocks were plain old black. Anchored by a sturdy TH350 3-speed automatic transmission and 2-speed transfer case, the driveline is tough enough to handle just about anything. While you're under there, check out the modest lift kit with new shocks at each corner, an upgraded steering stabilizer, and heavy-duty axles at both ends. Of course, a truck like this wouldn't be possible without power steering and brakes, so despite its size it's relatively easy to maneuver in traffic. Great-looking Gear chrome wheels suit the truck's personality and carry mammoth 37x12.50-20 off-road tires that look like they'll climb a wall.
A very cool truck with big modifications and a classic look. With lots of recent service work, it's totally sorted and ready to enjoy. Call today!
