This 1986 Chevrolet C10 Silverado has the great look of a classic two-tone. But the Vortec fuel-injected V8, overdrive transmission, four-wheel disc brakes, and custom A/C interior all let you know this vintage Chevy is really the restomod truck of your dreams.
The Canyon Copper and Cream is the factory-correct color combo. It's a vintage style that also has the timeless appeal of a desert sunrise. There's also a modern attraction from the nice gloss that signals a more recent quality respray. This generation pickup has a well-creased style to the sheet metal that makes them well-defined, like the face of a cowboy who has seen it all. Even the two-tone is straightforward making sure there's always a well-defined border utilizing both a double pinstripe and the Silverado's premium full-length trim. And speaking of trim, the brightwork factory pieces such as bumpers and wide trailing mirrors, have good shine. Plus, the large Legend Series gunmetal gray wheels and lowered stance do a great job to announce this is an updated restomod. Just like that rugged cowboy, you'll see the bed is made for real use, and there might be a few nicks that would stop this from being absolutely perfect. But that's the difference between a trailer queen and a restomod that was made to be enjoyed.
The first thing that will strike you about the interior is the seat. This two-tone saddle and tan is a terrific color combo, and the diamond-stitch pattern seems like the kind of thing you'd get on a Bentley. The door panels, headliner, and sun visors were even done to match. So you have a uniform and premium presentation. Silverados were the premium line during this era, so it's nice to have features like power windows, power locks, a tilt steering column, and an AM/FM digital tuner w/cassette. This truck has the sliding rear window to really let you get the old-school breezes through the cab. But whenever you need it even cooler, there is cold blowing R134a air conditioning. And when you turn the key, the white-faced Dakota Digital gauges give a cool blue glow that tells you there's something much more modern under the hood.
It's easy to spot the upgrade in the engine bay. The 5.3-liter Vortec is a V8 that wouldn't be available until later generation GM trucks, but this fuel-injected motor has been nicely installed here to make the upgrade looks like it belonged since day one. It's unknown if the mileage on the new digital gauges represents the distance since the Vortec was added, but we do know it fires up and runs with the fresher feeling you want in a modern FI powerhouse. This was also upgraded with a 4L60E four-speed automatic transmission that was built to go with this kind of motor and provide overdrive comfort. This is a fine any time machine, and the power steering, grippy modern tires, and four-wheel power disc brakes all add to this appeal.
Power and poise come together on this custom Silverado, so you know you want it in your garage. Call today!!!
