The two-tone look makes this 1984 Chevrolet C10 Silverado give the first impression of a vintage workhorse. But with an upgraded A/C interior, overdrive transmission, and fuel-injected 5.3L V8 power under the hood, you can really see that this has really been upgraded to deliver a total package pickup.
The paint makes a very cool first impression. The factory-correct Colonial Yellow and Frost White was given a professional respray in 2014. The result is a classic style that gives off a hint of newer luster. And it's great to have pinstriping and the Silverado's premium trim providing well-defined dividing line for the two colors all over the truck. These same pieces also help to highlight how straight the panels are, which gives off the proper impression of a well-cared for pickup. Plus, there's something quite nice about this truck's ready-to-work attitude. There are running light above the cab, more below the tailgate, a step bumper with trailer hitch, bed rails, and locking tool box.
Inside is the right mix of originality and solid upgrades. The exterior yellow returns on the lower dash and upper door panels. Now that's joined by a tasteful tan on the bench seat, door panels, dash pad, and carpeting. There are plenty of the features you want, like power windows, power locks, and the sliding rear glass. The dash of these C10s are terrific for surrounding the driver like a sports car. It makes upgrades like the modern AM/FM/CD stereo w/USB and R134a air conditioning controls within easy reach.
While the upgrades so far have been subtle, it's hard to hide the one in the engine bay. You're going to lift the hood at car shows and watch as people marvel at the modern 5.3-liter fuel injected V8 that's been neatly installed under the hood. They went the right extra steps to make this upgrade feel at home in this classic, right down to the proper OBD-II input for easy diagnostics. The V8 fires up like a modern fuel-injected machine should. It inhales deeply with the Spectre air intake, and it exhales with authority out long tube headers feeding a Flowmaster dual exhaust. The power steering and power brakes w/discs up front make for an easy-cruising pickup. Plus, the 4L60E four-speed automatic transmission designed for these Vortec motors was also added, so you get highway-friendly overdrive.
Complete with owner's manual, this is the vintage truck upgraded to be a nice modern driver for near or far. So at a price like this, you know you need to hurry if you want to take it home. Call today!!!
