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.
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

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.
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.
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.
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!
