“Chevy Trucks. Tough and Tightfisted.” -Period Chevrolet truck magazine advertisement
The above-quoted magazine ad went onto trumpet the Chevy pickup's computer-matched brakes (“front disc brakes and finned-drum rear brakes are automatically computer-matched to gross vehicle weight”); tough ladder-type frame (“design allows low cab mounting, easy entry”); counter-angled rear shocks (“to help reduce brake and power hop”); long vehicle life (“95.7% of all Chevy trucks in the ten most recent model years were still on the job.”); and longer service intervals (30,000 miles between spark plug changes, 7,500 miles between oil changes and chassis lubrication, 30,000 miles between air cleaner elements). The ad summed it all up with the Chevy truck theme: "Built to Stay Tough."
The '84 Chevy K10 offered here in light-blue metallic over blue is compelling proof of truth in advertising: a very well-maintained, lightly lifted, refreshed, upgraded 36 year-old classic. This Chevy pickup looks nowhere near its age. It didn't just “stay tough,” this truck got a lot tougher. Mileage on the truck is 208,001, fewer than 6,000 miles per year on average. Truly a stunning 4-wheeler, this K10 pickup is ready for its next 200k miles.
The truck's exterior has benefitted from a recent professional respray. All body panels—from the hood, across the roof, to the tailgate--display even gloss and an absence of scratches, dings, or dents. The paintwork included the door edges, sills, jambs and the underside of the cabin roof. (To best assess the quality of the paint and trim finishes, please be sure to view the close-up photographs of the car in the accompanying gallery.) Chrome bumpers front and rear are in near-perfect condition (the front bumper includes overriders and a pair of auxiliary driving lights); matching chrome wheel-arch trim adds flair. The truck's stock front grille shows some loss of the chrome-on-plastic finish but is otherwise complete and free of damage. All other factory chrome trim is in place and in good condition with light patina. Factory badges and emblems, with the exception of the front-grille gold bowtie, have been deleted. The long-bed cargo box had been treated with a protective coating at some point and remnants of it remain; the bed shows many signs of normal use and wear. Cabin glass—including on the sliding rear window—is clear and undamaged. Lighting lenses are undamaged (taillight lenses are smoked). Original-style, 15-inch, 6-lug steel wheels are mounted with fresh BFGoodrich® 35x12.50 LT All-Terrain T/A raised-white-letter tires.
Inside the cab, the stock interior look has been maintained and selectively upgraded. Black door trim includes roll-up window handles. The original blue, Chevrolet-branded, 2-spoke steering wheel frames a padded blue dashboard with woodgrain trim. Stock gauges are mounted on a separate woodgrain insert panel. The bench seat has been perfectly reupholstered in original-quality dark-blue vinyl. No radio is mounted, but auxiliary stereo speakers are mounted behind the seat. The shift lever for the 700R4 automatic transmission is mounted on the steering column. The transfer-case selector lever for the manual 4WD ssytem is floor-mounted. Cabin floors are covered in black carpeting which is free of excessive wear.
Under the hood is a 305-cubic-inch V8 in a clean, but not detailed engine bay. Black, Edelbrock®-branded valve covers and a matching black air-cleaner cover add distinctiveness and hint at the truck's added power. (Other engine modifications are listed nearby.) Viewed from below, the lifted suspension components, exhaust headers, and full-length, properly routed dual-exhaust system steal the show. There is no evidence of suspension or component damage. Some components have been treated with rust-inhibiting coating. Expected surface rust is present on untreated metal.
While the more than 135 high-definition photographs and the short walk-around-and-startup video available on the GarageKeptMotors website showcase this '86 Chevy K10 pickup in detail from every angle, including from below, we expect and encourage in-person inspections at our Grand Rapids, Michigan showroom. Please call to arrange an appointment in advance as our showroom is not open to the public. And feel free to get in touch anytime by phone or email if you have questions.
As the country-music lyric goes, “There's just something about a pickup man.” Whether male or female, the next owner of this lifted, well-maintained, long-bed '84 Chevy K 10 can expect that “something” to generate plenty of compliments and serious respect for this exceptionally well-maintained high-mileage truck.
"Built to Stay Tough?" You bet.
