Sometimes what you want is simple, clean, and to the point. This 1985 Chevy K10 4x4 pickup embodies that philosophy perfectly, offering a straight body, nice black paint, and a minimum of add-ons that clutter the design. With 5.0-liter 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 Black paint job, this truck embodies the word. Nothing has been altered or modified-not even a cowl induction hood-and the paint job is very nicely done with a neat silver pinstripe bisecting the upper and lower halves. 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 grille and bumpers are excellent originals, the factory stainless trim remains bright and shiny, and it wears aftermarket chrome fender flares that look right. The bed suggests that this truck has never worked a day in its life and is now protected by a drop-in bed liner and a set of diamond plate bed rails. 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 1985, including factory A/C, cruise control, and power windows and locks. The gray upholstery isn''t dramatic, but it works well with the black paint and it''s quite possible that it''s original, which suggests that this truck has been well-maintained from day one. The factory radio is long gone, replaced at some point by an AM/FM/cassette unit that still sounds decent. That little toggle switch just to the right of the radio controls the dual gas tank feed, giving this pickup unbelievable range on the highway or into remote areas. The carpets are protected by a set of heavy-duty rubber floor mats, and there''s a sliding rear window provides great ventilation for those days when you don''t need A/C. The engine is a 305 cubic inch V8 without any of the usual tricks, and you know how well those run, right? The underhood area is tidy and well-maintained, evidence of a conscientious owner, and there''s plenty of recent work, so it needs nothing to start cruising this summer. No questionable modifications to compromise reliability (or value, for that matter), and thanks to recent high-quality ignition parts, it starts quickly and idles smoothly, and despite the truck''s size and 4x4 capabilities, the 5.0 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 the original catalytic converter and dual tailpipes for a great sound, terminating in subtle tips just behind the rear wheels. Those fat tires are big 31x10.50-15 BFGoodrich All Terrain T/A radials wrapped around stock aluminum 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!
