This 1970 Chevrolet K10 is the pickup with a cool vintage look,
nice upgrades, an overdrive transmission, and solid small block
power. It makes for a capable 4x4 that you'll also love for being a
Red is a timeless and vivid color that will always grab your eye
when done right, but this truck takes it a step further. It's a
fresher application with even gloss that shows off the straight
sheet metal. There's a bit of a coordinated attitude in the custom
details. For example, the combination of brightwork and black in
the upgraded grille goes well with the full-length trim. And the
bright chrome bumpers and Rally wheels go well with the polished
dual exhaust tips. But the real star here is the truck bed. The
glossy dark-stained wood makes this a craftsman's pickup.
The bold red style continues inside, and it all has a fresh and
clean style that shows there was a good investment recently. You
have the premium Cheyenne western style pattern on the seats, and
it's also repeated in the doors. And items like the classic
textured Chevy steering wheel, wood-like trim, and working dome
light are all the little things that will impress vintage detail
lovers. There are also well-integrated modern upgrades, like the
retro-style AM/FM digital tuner with aux input for your iPod. There
are provisions for air conditioning (it will likely need a recharge
to blow cold again.)
The 350 cubic-inch V8 under the hood has a tidy and clean
presentation. It has a very stock-style look, right down to
color-matched valve covers and black air cleaner. But this is
actually hiding a secret because it has been upgraded to inhale
deeper with a Holley four-barrel carburetor and a Winters snowflake
aluminum intake. The motor is mated to 700R4 four-speed automatic
transmission that shifts smoothly all the way into overdrive.
There's also power steering and power brakes with discs up front.
This was upgraded to a K10 4x4 later in life, and that means good
components for a proper raised suspension, two-speed transfer case,
and all-terrain tires. It makes for a classic that's both a cruiser
for on and off the pavement.
This is the classic 4x4 that is made to look sharp, feel
comfortable, and stay quite capable. So it has some great
all-around appeal that you'll want to get your hands on right now.
