Vehicle Description

1985 Chevrolet C10 Pickup

It started with a simple idea: a few car chassis fitted with hand-built beds to help carry materials around a booming car factory. Before long, millions of Chevrolet pickups were woven into the fabric of a fast-growing country. Chevy trucks tackled the toughest jobs on farms and in the fields; hauled tools and lumber to the burgeoning suburbs; and carried families and friends into and out of the wilds for well-earned vacations.

For consignment, a 1985 Chevrolet pickup truck that has been the beneficiary of repaint 25 years ago, a spicy 355ci small block V8 mill, overdrive transmission with a shift kit, some snappy dark blue paint, and a clean interior. Let's just say have a look and I'm sure you will be impressed as I was, and definitely had a yearning to look into this truck deeper.

Exterior
Classic Chevrolet trucks from the 80's are quite the hot item these days. Any classic truck is for that matter, but truth be told, it's the boxy retro look that people are after, and this truck is the epitome of that design. A flat silver and chrome eggcrate grille leads us off with its stacked inset headlights and parking light setup on either side, and on this example a gold bow tie in the center. Shiny and mirror-like would best describe the bumper below. This beautiful setup fronts straight steel, with well minded gaps, all bathed in a 25 year old application of dark blue. A few flaws are noted in the paint, those being some fisheyes, hazing and inclusions on the hood. Good chrome attachments are on the doors in the form of mirrors, and handles. The glass surrounds remain shiny and bright and accent the tinted glass splendidly. The long bed version is covered with a black tonneau rib reinforced bed cover, and underneath is the rubber lined bed looking good. 18 inch American Racing Torque Thrust wheels present with polished lips and graphite gray spokes and are wrapped with like new rubber.

Interior
A swing of the doors reveals an intricate mix of dark and light tans molded vinyl with some carpeted area on the bottoms, and many differing panels to make up just the doors. These panels show some light wear but remain looking good. Inside is a gray moose print, tree, and snowflake seat cover is over the bench seat stretching from door to door. As for the condition of the underlying upholstery, we didn't take the time to remove the cover which is well attached, but peeking under the side reveals clean tan broadcloth. In front is the original factory configured tan and brown molded vinyl dash with a black instrument cluster using the square and rectangle design of the mid 1980's. Also within the dash is a JVC AM/FM/Cassette player. Gold carpet is on the floors and remains clean as there are molded rubber diamond plate pattern floor tray mats. Above is a tight felted headliner.

Drivetrain
Under the hood is simply put: "eye candy" in the form of a blue blocked consigner stated 355ci V8. This mill sports a mild performance camshaft, an Edelbrock intake and a QuickFuel750cfm 4-barrel carburetor. A rebuilt 700R4 4-speed automatic transmission with a shift kit and heavy duty clutches is on back along with a 10-bolt, 4.11 posi-rear axle. Also seen are silver headers and totally polished bolt ons abounding throughout the clean bay. Smoke 'em if you got 'em!

Undercarriage
Not to be outdone by the topside, the undercarriage appears to have never seen bad weather, and is also fully restored in black with the only rust being a light surface coating on the usual suspects. Straight rust free steel featuring independent coil springs on front and the rear has leaf springs give us thesmooth truck ride. Power disc brakes are on front, and power drums for the rear for the whoah factor and a shiny Turbo mufflered exhaust system is fed by headers and ends with chromed dual tips under the rear bumper.

Drive-Ability
Firing this truck up, you will be met with a surprising roar as you soak in the plush seating and well done interior. It certainly accelerates smoothly and quickly, stops on a dime and cruises very nicely to boot. All functions were working just perfectly save for the driver's power lock not functioning and the air conditioning blowing warm.

A fine overall restoration job and showing very wellfor the exterior and interior. The rebuilt engine is all blinged out, 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 much better in our Hallowed Halls than this baby. Ready to haul anything, even some serious ass!
