Chevy Trucks. Tough and Tightfisted. -Period Chevrolet truck magazine advertisement The above-quoted magazine ad went on to trumpet the Chevy pickup's computer-matched brakes (front disc brakes and finned-drum rear brakes are automatically computer-matched to gross vehicle weight); tough ladder-type frame (design allows low cab mounting, easy entry); counter-angled rear shocks (to help reduce brake and power hop); long vehicle life (95.7% of all Chevy trucks in the ten most recent model years were still on the job.); and longer service intervals (30,000 miles between spark plug changes, 7,500 miles between oil changes and chassis lubrication, 30,000 miles between air cleaner elements). The ad summed it all up with the Chevy truck theme: Built to Stay Tough. The '86 Chevy C10 short-bed pickup offered here in metallic gray over blue has been upgraded with custom touches added inside and out. This a 35-year-old Chevy pickup that looks nowhere near its age. As to truth in advertising, this C10 didn't just stay tough, it got tougher. Also, lower, more powerful, and better looking, too. The exterior metallic gray (almost pewter) paint is a Chevy classic color and its condition here is generally very good. (To best assess the quality of the paint and trim finishes, be sure to view the close-up photographs of the car in the accompanying gallery.) Body panels-from the hood, across the roof, to the cargo short-bed and tailgate-display good gloss and an absence of scratches or dents. The front chrome bumper is in excellent condition; the rear bumper has been removed for a shaved look. Other chrome, including the wheel-arch trim, window (and drip rail) trim, side-view mirror and door handles, is properly shiny with light patina in places. The truck's custom, horizontal-slat, front grille simplifies the truck's design without losing its basic appeal. It's a very appealing freshened look. In the rear, the simplified, brushed-metal tailgate trim continues the lightly customized look. The Silverado 10 front-fender emblems are the only remaining badging. The inside of the short-bed cargo box shows signs of normal use and wear. Stock steel wheels with bowtie center caps and chrome trim rings are mounted with GoodYear® Eagle GTII raised-white-letter tires. Inside the cab, the stock, blue-themed interior look has been maintained and, like the rest of the truck, tastefully upgraded. Stock blue velour door trim includes power-window controls. A custom, polished-metal trim lower panel with a mirror-like finish has been added. The factory steering wheel in black with a red bowtie-logo center frames a soft-covered blue dash. The shift lever for the automatic transmission is mounted on the steering column. Custom, brushed-metal trim surrounds the comprehensive and fully upgraded AutoMeter® Phantom white-faced instruments. Included are a 160-mph speedometer, programmable tachometer, and full complement of engine-monitoring gauges. Custom, lighted toggle switches and a digital screen complete the driver's portion of the dash. Another matching brushed-metal trim piece with Silverado emblem faces the passenger. The bench seat retains stock blue-fabric upholstery. Cabin floors are covered in blue carpeting showing some light soiling. Cabin glass is clear. Under the hood is a 350-cubic-inch V8 in a clean but not overly detailed engine bay. A chrome, open-sided, Moroso®-embosse
