Sometimes what you want is simple, clean, and to the point. This 1987 Chevrolet K10 4x4 pickup embodies that philosophy perfectly, offering an ultra-straight body, nice blue metallic paint, and a minimum of add-ons that clutter the design. With 350 V8 power, a bunch of options, and a great look, it's the ideal all-purpose hobby vehicle.
Clean is the right word for this Chevy. From the grille to the clean body lines and shiny Midnight Blue paint job, this truck embodies the word. Nothing has been altered or modified, not even a cowl induction hood, and the paint job is pretty well done and only a few months old. No long, salty winters, no hard work on the job site, this truck has led a very good life and it shows everywhere you look. The paint shines so well you'll think twice about pulling that 4-wheel-drive lever and heading into the dirt, and there's plenty of chrome to really make it stand out. The color is from the 1999 Corvette color pallet and while it's got a few signs of use, it would really wake up with a professional cut and buff. The grille and bumpers are excellent originals, the factory stainless trim remains bright and shiny, and it wears a heavy-duty rear step bumper that gives it a suitably butch look. The bed is still original and shows some wear, but that also means you can use it as intended without worries.
GM was actually designing some awfully nice interiors during this era, including a wrap-around dashboard full of highly functional gauges. This one also got just about every option available in 1987, including factory A/C, cruise control, a tilt steering column, and power windows and locks. The blue upholstery isn't dramatic, but it works well with the blue paint and it's in great shape, which suggests that this truck has been well-maintained. The factory radio is long gone, replaced at some point by a JVC AM/FM/CD unit that sounds great. New carpets give it a plush feel, and there's a sliding rear window provides great ventilation for those days when you don't need the A/C.
The engine is a 350 cubic inch V8 without any of the usual tricks, and you know how well those run, right? Rebuilt about 1000 miles ago, the 350 replaces a wheezy 305 and features throttle-body fuel injection and a new control system to go with it. The underhood area is orderly if not detailed for show, although they did dress it up with Chevy Orange paint and finned valve covers. No questionable modifications to compromise reliability (or value, for that matter) and despite the truck's size and 4x4 capabilities, the 350 does just fine moving it around. The engine's backed by a 4-speed automatic overdrive transmission and a 2-speed transfer case that gives it legitimate off-road chops. The exhaust system features long-tube headers and a 3-inch exhaust system with Flowmaster mufflers for a great sound, terminating in shiny stainless tips just behind the rear wheels. Those fat tires are big 265/75/15 Wild Country radials wrapped around stock Rally wheels in excellent condition.
Even though we seem to get quite a few of them, clean, turn-key 4x4s like this are harder to find than you'd think, but this big Chevy K10 is ready to rock. Call today!
