Vehicle Description

1986 GMC K15 4x4 Pickup

Officially named the "Rounded-Line" trucks by GM, the 1973-1987 Chevy C/K trucks were known more casually as the "box-body" or "square-body" pickup. Sporting a new body style that incorporated rounded corners around the wheel well in addition to a rounded windshield and door frames, the third-generation Chevy C/K trucks had an entirely new look. Larger and wider, the pickups looked more box-like, which is why they were coined the "box-body" trucks.

For consignment, a 4x4 K15, a comfy driver, a Rhino-lined long bed, new sheetmetal, new fuel tanks, new interior trim, and working R134 converted AC, all wrapped up in arrest me red paint with 15-inch wheels and knobby off-road tires.

Exterior
Known as the rounded line as tagged by GM, the lines appear to be more square and rectangle than anything else. This includes a rectangular blacked out chrome trimmed grille with stacked square headlights in square bezel panels and a shiny bumper below. Straight bright red fresh steel wraps all sides and the bed, and all support well minded gaps. Some thin stainless trimmings finish off the wheel wells and straight clean body lines, sans trimmings and badges make up the slab steel sides. Black trimmings surround the glass and for a little extra bling the drip rails are highlighted with shiny stainless trimming. The bed is covered with Rhino Liner which even covers the sides and tailgate. 15-inch satin finished aluminum wheels are wrapped by like new 35x12.50R15LT raised white letter General Grabber all-weather deep tread tires.

Interior
Red molded vinyl buttons up the door panels and these have a nicely contrasting brushed aluminum insert that holds the door pull and vies for space against padded vinyl armrests and a broadcloth insert. This panel is trimmed with a chrome delineation strip and down below is a carpeted band in red. Inside is a freshly recovered oxblood vinyl bench seat with smooth black vinyl bolsters on the sides and tuck and roll cushions that make up the seating. The original dash is intact and looking clean with a multitude of inset round gauges within a brushed aluminum panel all with LED backlighting. A black plastic band is below and holds the headlight pull and modern AM/FM stereo. The dash top is clean and shows no cracking or distortions and the lower is all steel in body matching red. Above is a new one piece formed headliner, and on the floors is clean medium pile red carpet with the transfer case shifter in the middle within its black housing.

Drivetrain
A consigner stated 4-bolt main 350ci V8 is topped with a single rebuilt 4-barrel carburetor and a 700R-4 4-speed automatic transmission. This setup throws power rearward and forward via the transfer case to 3.07 geared axles. The entire engine bay looks original and great with its black bolt ons and supple hoses. New inner fenders were installed during the restoration as well as a new radiator support and keeping things cool is a new radiator.

Undercarriage
Not to be outdone by the topside, the undercarriage appears to have never seen bad weather, and is also fully restored. Straight rust-free steel for the flooring and frame is protected by more Rhino lining and the cab floors retain their factory undercoated finish. Providing the truck-like ride are leaf springs both fore and aft with new Roadmaster shocks. Power disc brakes are on front, and power drums for the rear. A shiny Flowmaster exhaust with chrome dual tips is also seen.

Drive-Ability
A quick fire up and the engine came to life! This K15 drove just like a truck should. Adequate acceleration, good braking and it handled all our test track had to offer. All mechanicals were working, and the interior proved to be visually appealing and comfortable thanks in part to the redone interior.

A fine overall restoration job and showing near showroom for the exterior and interior. The well running engine and the engine bay is simply...well fabulous! I could use my pickup line right now, but I digress, and will just say a classic truck will not get any better in our hallowed halls than this baby. Ready to haul anything, even some serious ass!
