This 1986 Chevrolet C10 Silverado has the great look of a classic
two-tone. But the Vortec fuel-injected V8, overdrive transmission,
four-wheel disc brakes, and custom A/C interior all let you know
this vintage Chevy is really the restomod truck of your dreams.
The Canyon Copper and Cream is the factory-correct color combo.
It's a vintage style that also has the timeless appeal of a desert
sunrise. There's also a modern attraction from the nice gloss that
signals a more recent quality respray. This generation pickup has a
well-creased style to the sheet metal that makes them well-defined,
like the face of a cowboy who has seen it all. Even the two-tone is
straightforward making sure there's always a well-defined border
utilizing both a double pinstripe and the Silverado's premium
full-length trim. And speaking of trim, the brightwork factory
pieces such as bumpers and wide trailing mirrors, have good shine.
Plus, the large Legend Series gunmetal gray wheels and lowered
stance do a great job to announce this is an updated restomod. Just
like that rugged cowboy, you'll see the bed is made for real use,
and there might be a few nicks that would stop this from being
absolutely perfect. But that's the difference between a trailer
queen and a restomod that was made to be enjoyed.
The first thing that will strike you about the interior is the
seat. This two-tone saddle and tan is a terrific color combo, and
the diamond-stitch pattern seems like the kind of thing you'd get
on a Bentley. The door panels, headliner, and sun visors were even
done to match. So you have a uniform and premium presentation.
Silverados were the premium line during this era, so it's nice to
have features like power windows, power locks, a tilt steering
column, and an AM/FM digital tuner w/cassette. This truck has the
sliding rear window to really let you get the old-school breezes
through the cab. But whenever you need it even cooler, there is
cold blowing R134a air conditioning. And when you turn the key, the
white-faced Dakota Digital gauges give a cool blue glow that tells
you there's something much more modern under the hood.
It's easy to spot the upgrade in the engine bay. The 5.3-liter
Vortec is a V8 that wouldn't be available until later generation GM
trucks, but this fuel-injected motor has been nicely installed here
to make the upgrade looks like it belonged since day one. It's
unknown if the mileage on the new digital gauges represents the
distance since the Vortec was added, but we do know it fires up and
runs with the fresher feeling you want in a modern FI powerhouse.
This was also upgraded with a 4L60E four-speed automatic
transmission that was built to go with this kind of motor and
provide overdrive comfort. This is a fine any time machine, and the
power steering, grippy modern tires, and four-wheel power disc
brakes all add to this appeal.
Power and poise come together on this custom Silverado, so you know
you want it in your garage. Call today!!!
