Vehicle Description

1979 Chevrolet Silverado K10

The model year 1960 brought the Chevrolet pickup into the modern era with its C/K series lineup. The "C" designation identified two-wheel-drive pickups, and the "K" identified 4X4s. The most common pickup was the C10, a half-ton truck with a 6.5- or 8-foot cargo box. The C/K series trucks remained essentially the same vehicle during a series of conservative redesigns, until 1997, when the 1998 Silverado replaced it.

For consignment a very well done restoration, the beneficiary of a body off frame process completed in April of 2021. A sweet crate engine, rebuilt original tranny, a virtually new interior, and nice 2 stage 2 tone paint. Awesome retro late 70's never looked so good.

Off the frame the original body went, where steel surfaces were painstakingly smoothed and sanded, and then put back together with well minded gaps, and bathed in nicely applied Cordova Brown Metallic paint with gold accenting panels in the center. Then clear coated and polished to perfection. Definitely the deep end of the pool on the paint. The trimmings were polished and now are appearing in snappy shiny square and rectangle design right from the factory floor. Badging is also perfect with the bowties and quarter panel badges. A gold painted tubular step up/running board is on either side. Large chrome mirrors hang off the doors and glass is all clear with nice trimmings encircling them. The bed has been also restored and then covered with a tough textured rubber flooring liner. The gate was removed and an open tubular custom fashioned gate is now holding things into the bed. A rubber covered top rear bumper is nice and perfectly shiny, and provides a secure step up to the bed. This bed is bathed in Cordova Brown just like the body. 31x10.5x15LT raised white knobby type lettered tires have shiny 15-inch truck rally wheels on each corner affixed to them.

The original looking panels are completely restored and now see tan vinyl and plastic covering them along with a patch of brushed aluminum, framed by embossed Sheridan style metal trimming. The lowers are brown carpeting. Wonderful slightly textured light tan broadcloth is reserved for the inserts on the bench, and bolsters are a piped darker tan vinyl. The dash is pure 1979 GM with square and rectangle design that wraps around the steering wheel, and contains plenty of round gauge, knobs, pulls, and climate control sliders. This truck is equipped with Vintage Air air conditioning as well. An aftermarket radio is AM/FM/MP3 capable and belts out tunes through door mounted speakers. In the center of the hump is a wood custom made console with cup holders and a storage tray wrapping around the 4WD shifter. Gold carpeting floods the floors, and above is a nice tight fuzzy gold broadcloth headliner. Great job on the interior!

Opening the hood and I'm seeing double with a polished metal panel adhered to the inner hood reflecting the mill below. This mill is weighing in at a 350ci V8 crate engine which the consignor stated puts out 350hp although no verification exists on this statement. On the back is a rebuilt turbo 350 3-speed automatic transmission, and on top is an Edelbrock intake with 4 barrel carb attached to it. The rear axle is a 12 bolt and the ratio is unknown. Headers and a Turbo Muffler system are installed so B R E A T H E out with ease...R E L A X, it's going to run just great! Ahhhhh.

Due to the frame off restoration, the underside is just as nice as the topside. All rust free black frame, rockers, stamped floor pans, like new dual fuel tanks, dual exhaust which snakes rearward to a stage left and right post rear wheel well side exit, Seen is a totally leak and drip free transmission and oil pan. Like new power disc brakes are up front, and power drums for the rear, as well as all very clean suspension with no road dirt to be seen underneath. Both axles have been rebuilt completely.

I slipped inside and was amazed at the attention to detail with the paint, interior surfaces, like new dash, and just....everything! She fired right up and to the test track we drove where this truck nicely however.... Somewhat sloppy power steering, nice abundant and seemingly never ending acceleration, and even a smooth comfortable cruise with plenty of interior room. Braking was a bit of an issue where sometimes the pedal went to the floor and when pushing the pedal hard, the truck would not stop. (Which is why any self respecting crash test dummy writer/test driver tests these FIRST!) The AC blows warm.

From head to toe, top and bottom, every inch is near perfect in looks, fit and finish on this '79 Silverado trimmed K10 4x4 pickup. Get in and turn the key and you'll be the envy of your construction crew showing up to the site in this beauty. It's that nice, you could even take the wife out to an expensive dinner in it to celebrate your purchase of said truck, (although make sure there is a nice gift on the seat for her when she gets in, because after all you bought the truck...). Hmmmmmmmm, also be sure to have the brakes looked into just to be on the safe side!
