For Sale: 1988 Chevrolet S10 in Morgantown, Pennsylvania

Vehicle Description

1988 Chevrolet S-10 Pickup

There is much debate as to exactly why the truck is called the S10, and the answer, at least the one I'm going with because it comes from Chevrolet brass, is that all the S designation in them means small cab, the 10 is because of the 10 foot bed? I'm sure there is another answer out there, and once this truck hits ebay, all the "experts" will be chiming in, as e-bay seems to have an overabundance of these! (sic)

Three owners, 2 of which from the same family, have owned this low original 46,669 title verified mileage Tahoe edition with two tone paint, a toolbox on the bed ling with a tonneau covering. A fine running truck. Cosmetically it is not perfect, but with the low miles and smooth running engine, it has a long life ahead for someone out there.

Exterior
This two tone S10 Tahoe in tan and green shows nicely. The paint has a few dents and dings and slight chip offs, but overall is good. The roof is slightly faded and on the bed is a black painted diamond plate tool chest, and just aft of this is a tonneau covering with aluminum ribs which are curved to add a bit more space under it. The bed underneath is lined with a black spray in liner, showing minimal wear. The trimmings are solid and shiny, and14-inch snowflake style wheels are standard issue from GM wrapped in 205/75R14 rubber from 1997. Overall gaps are nicely minded, and paint is shiny as well as delineating trimmings between the two tones.

Interior
Camel is the interior color and it's all over the interior in various shades of light and dark. Door panels are in nice clean condition, utilizing some tuck and riot broadcloth, molded plastic and carpeting below. A bench seat has tuck and roll square "tweed" broadcloth with shiny vinyl bolsters showing in a pumpkin color, slightly darker than the inserts. A darker tan dash mixes with black panels and houses all the controls needed to operate and monitor this truck. Gauges are in a central display which rolls up and down in lieu of pointers. Square and rectangle panels are all nice and clean and show little to no wear. Tan clean carpeting is installed below, and above is a fuzzy broad cloth tan headliner.

Drivetrain
Underneath the hood is looking like new, all highly detailed and very clean. We see a 2.8 liter V6 with EFI, shoehorned into the clean surrounding bay. On the back a 700R4 4-speed automatic transmission is on, and a 10 bolt rear spins the back wheels. A new alternator and battery are now in.

Undercarriage
Some surface rust is seen coating suspension and shows slightly on the frame. Floor pans and rockers are all black and structurally sound. Independent coil spring suspension is in front, and leaf springs are on back. Power disc braking is upfront, and power drums are on the back.

Drive-Ability
A quick starter and very smooth idle from this V6. It drives great and handles nicely with good solid power braking, and easy power steering. The AC blows cold as it has been renewed, and most of the airflow comes from the floor, but still chilled the interior nicely.

2 owners then our consigner makes it 3, who buttoned up this low mileage truck. A new tonneau after removing the original bed cap, and the tool box is a real plus for the working owner. All in nice clean condition, not perfect, but perfectly suited to the person who will buy it.
