If you've been looking for a rugged, go-anywhere, square-jawed truck with all the goodies, you've just found the best choice on our website. This stunning 1985 Chevrolet K10 Silverado 4x4 has been beautifully restored and looks fantastic in its Candy Apple Red Metallic paint. With plenty of power thanks to a 350 Crate V8 motor under the hood, heavy-duty Sky Jacker off-road gear underneath, and a comfortable stock interior, you just don't see Square Body trucks finished to this level.

Nearly 40 years later, these Square Body Chevy trucks STILL look fantastic. Forget aerodynamics for a moment, and take a good look at the angles on this truck, which was originally designed to work for a living, not sip gas and look pretty. Always a clean, southern machine, this beauty sports a laser-straight body and terrific Candy Apple Red Metallic paint that's super slick and shines up beautifully, although it's still prepared to repel mud and dirt from playing outside. It doesn't appear to have ever been a work truck, and the short-bed/regular cab models often enjoy the best care because they're personal vehicles. The finish is deep and lustrous, and it looks amazing under our lights where it's practically reflecting our entire photo booth. And we love that they left off all the extra aftermarket nonsense that plagues so many of these Square Body trucks no cowl hood, no light bars, and obnoxious grille and bumper set-up. Other than the big lift, this baby is a stocker, down to the bright chrome and trim that looks absolutely amazing up against the dark candy paint, the big chrome bumpers fore and aft, and that commanding stock grill up front that sports a color-matches trip down the middle. Out back, the slick painted bed probably hasn't hauled anything heavier than a pillow in its day, and it's been finished to the same strong driver-quality standards as the rest of the truck. But don't fret, because whether you want to put it to work out on the trails, at the job site, or in the trophy-collecting business at your local car-show circuit, this big K10 is going to dominate.

The factory black vinyl-and-cloth bench seat interior was beautifully refreshed back-to-stock, and its current high-end condition tells you all you need to know about the easy life this truck has lived. The durable black upholstery is in excellent shape, with no rips or tears to be found, and matching black carpets and Bowtie floor mats make it feel very civilized inside. The gauges are original and fully functional, covering all the engine's vitals, while the stock steering wheel is still in place as well, mounted atop a tilt column that gives the driver ample room inside. Judging by the glove box sticker, the convenience package this K10 was born with included factory A/C, and although all the equipment still looks locked-and-loaded in place, the system could use a service to blow cold again. And unlike many of these '80s era K-10s, it also has power steering and power 4-wheel disc brakes, which are much appreciated with those massive tires and big lift underneath. There's also a newer retro-style AM/FM/AUX stereo head unit in the dash, a fresh dashpad up top, new door panels at the flanks, and a taut headliner up top that finishes off the cabin perfectly.

Powering this 4x4 beauty is a 350 cubic inch V8 crate motor with a bunch of horsepower-building performance parts and flashy bolt-on goodies. Holley QuickFuel Technology supplied the 4-barrel carburetor, Edelbrock supplied the intake manifold, and a set of Doug's long-tube headers and throaty Flowmaster mufflers really make it sound nasty. The engine bay itself is beautifully detailed with a body-colored firewall, satin-black inner fenders, and some chrome dress-up on the valve covers and tall air cleaner, and all the mechanical pieces are in excellent shape throughout. A 700R4 4-speed automatic transmission with overdrive is linked to a 2-speed transfer case, which feeds beefy axles (10-bolt up front and a 14-bolt in the rear) when you're off-roading for maximum traction. Underneath, the chassis was painted and detailed to match the top, and it's augmented by a big Skyjacker suspension and body lift that gives this truck an impressive presence over the other cars on the road. Massive Mickey Thompson Baja MTZ all-terrain tires are wrapped around a set of flashy Mickey Thompson Classic wheels for an awesome look, and by the looks of them they've never seen anything more treacherous than a gravel driveway.

This dialed-in vintage off-roader is ready to hit the trails or head to the job site where it will perform equally well. Square Body K-10s don't get finished to this kind of level very often, so don't miss your chance to get in on the hobby in style. Call today!
