This 1984 Chevrolet S-10 strikes a nice balance between comfortable
restomod and powerful pro street machine. It provides you with a
performance-built V8, four-wheel disc brakes, pearl flames in the
paint, an upgraded A/C interior, and more, so it offers everything
you want in a custom speed machine...including a value price.
The white paint makes for a bright way to glow day or night, so
this one likes to attract attention. And with the bumper and sport
mirrors done to match, it has a very contemporary look. But what
will really get people talking is when the light catches the
pearlescent finish of the ghost flames laid on top of the front.
The flush-fitting tonneau cover, upgraded taillight, and integrated
roll pan really add to the sporty style. While you see some cool
Hot Wheels badging on the sides and tailgate, it really earns those
with the special shining 17-inch alloys done to look like your
favorite carpet racer.
The first thing that you notice when you open the door are the
seats. Not only are these conformable buckets, but also they are
finished in a white that loves to glow in this dark interior. Plus,
they have an awesome pattern with the Chevy bow tie in the bottom
cushions and cool flames in the seatbacks. There are nice comfort
features, like an AM/FM/CD stereo and cold-blowing air
conditioning, but what you really notice is how this pickup wants
to get down to speedy business. You have a Grant sports steering
wheel on a tilt column, nice gauges with large speedo and tach,
additional auxiliary readouts, and a Cheetah ratchet shifter.
You can instantly spot the upgrade in the engine bay, because these
lightweight S-10s never got a V8 option from the factory. This is a
358 cubic-inch V8 (yes, just like NASCAR has) that the consignor
states this was built by Fulton Competition Race Engines. It has
all the right performance pieces, like aluminum heads, a
four-barrel carburetor, an Edelbrock intake, and shorty headers
feeding the dual exhaust. The three-speed automatic transmission
has a TCI stall converter to keep you in the ideal powerband, and
that feeds a stout Ford rear end. Plus, features like four-wheel
power disc brakes, power steering, and grippy Hankook Ventus Evo
V12 tires, this is an all-around great driving pickup.
This Chevy earns its Hot Wheel nickname not only for its graphics,
but also because it's the kind of true speedy custom you've been
dreaming about since you were a kid. So don't miss this deal. Call
