SUPERCLEAN LIFTED K10 4X4, FUELIE 350 V8, 700R4, PWR FRNT DISC/STEER, R134A A/C!
This big 1986 Chevrolet K10 4x4 has a lot going for it. Black paint, a great powertrain, and, well, who doesn't love a brute like this? With go-anywhere capabilities but the comfort and reliability of a daily driver, this might just be the ultimate pickup.
The first thing you notice is the intimidating black paint job, which makes this big truck look nasty. At once unique and timeless, the paint went on in the 1990s, but this truck was never a beater so it still looks quite good. The sheetmetal is straight and clean, and the Chevy's squared-off looks have aged very, very well. Look closely and you'll see the paint is not perfect, but in great shape nonetheless, and with a simple white pinstripe down the flanks, it looks just the way the factory might have done it. All the original trim was reinstalled, too, and with a color-matched grille, it has a custom look without needing a lot of dramatic modifications. The bed is protected a drop-in bed liner and heavy-duty mat, as well as a set of bed rails that dress the truck up nicely. There's also a chrome rear bumper and a sliding rear window provides great ventilation on warm days.
Gray vinyl covers the stock bench seat, and the almost entirely original interior doesn't need a lot of flash to be functional. The lower half of the dash is painted to match the body, which is a nice touch, and upscale door panels, carpeted floors, and a bunch of comfort and convenience options make this as much luxury truck as commercial hauler. A sheet of brushed stainless frames the original gauges, with a factory steering wheel atop a tilt column to help guide it down the trail. It also sports factory A/C with an R134a refrigerant upgrade, plus an AM/FM/CD stereo down low in the original radio's location. Heavy-duty rubber floor mats provide some protection for the carpets, especially when you're out playing in the dirt, but it never feels like a working-class vehicle. It's comfortable enough to use every day.
With a fuel-injected 350 cubic inch V8 under the hood, there aren't many places this brute can't go. Nicely finished, the engine bay looks like someone's been looking after it all its life, and if this truck was intended to get dirty, someone was certainly fastidious about cleaning it up afterwards. There are no radical modifications, so it runs happily on pump gas, idles well, pulls hard, and doesn't overheat during slow-speed crawling. There's plenty of torque to turn those big tires, and thanks to a 700R4 4-speed automatic overdrive transmission, it cruises quietly and comfortably and fuel mileage goes from abominable to adequate, which is about all you can expect in a big machine like this. A 4-inch lift gives it its towering presence, there's a great-sounding dual exhaust system with dual outlets, and with twin stabilizers on the steering linkage, it tracks straight and doesn't wander like many lifted pickups. Polished aluminum wheels wear giant 35x12.5-15 off-road tires that look great, ride well, and claw through the dirt with ease.
If you're a fan of off-roading, this is a finished truck ready to enjoy, and even if you just like the look, this one is incredibly civilized. Call today!
