This 1985 Chevrolet K10 Silverado has that vintage 4x4 look you love with its tall stance, old red, and ideal single cab with short bed configuration. And as you dig deeper, everything from the enhanced V8 power to the loaded interior proves that someone has already made the investments to create your dream square-body Chevy.
The Apple Red paint is the factory-correct color, but the radiance it has today comes from an upgrade later in life. Red is a confident color, and it combines with beefy/boxy body lines and the tall 4x4 stance to give this truck an authoritative look. There are some bright features we all love, like the bumpers, trim, and Rally wheels. And the wraparound silver pinstripe gives a sporty style and helps to highlight the quality fit of the sheet metal. Being pretty doesn\'t make this any less of a practical pickup, but you\'ll want to put down a liner to protect the awesome resprayed bed before it\'s time for real truck duty. In fact, there\'s already a tow hitch so a trailer can do the rear dirty work.
The silver/gray pinstripe was a preview of the interior. We usually see that on luxury cars, and this Silverado seems to want to play on that level, too. You have plenty of great features, like power windows, a tilt steering column, stereo, cruise control, and a fresh-looking bench seat done in a comfy velour. The factory air conditioning has even been upgraded to modern R134a refrigerant, but it will need recharging/servicing to blow cold again. It all makes for a quite comfortable and complete classic pickup.
Under the hood is proper small block V8 power. This 350 cubic-inch motor was an update later in life, and so they also added desirable features like Edelbrock four-barrel carburetor, an Edelbrock aluminum intake, and long tube headers feeding the dual exhaust and Magnaflow mufflers. The four-speed manual transmission gives you proper control over the power. And the granny first gear is an ideal pairing with the two-speed 4x4 transfer case when you need plenty of traction and low-end torque. There are even Bushwacker shocks and BF Goodrich Mud Terrain T/As to help you blaze your own trail. It\'s also made to be a comfortable cruiser on the pavement with features like power steering, power brakes, and front discs.
This is the kind of Silverado that you\'ve always admired. Tall, clean, intimidating, premium, and powerful is an awesome mix, so don\'t miss your chance. Call today!!!
