This 1981 Chevrolet K-10 4x4 looks like it rolled off the assembly line, only to be transported from the early-\'80s to the present to handle whatever challenges you might want to throw its way. It\'s a great looking truck - rugged and brimming with classic style - with just the right amount of customization that pairs with thorough road readiness both on and off the asphalt.
This rugged workhorse strikes a great balance, with a configuration largely remaining in original form that\'s been augmented with a steel cowl hood that sits over a newly refurbished front grille. A prominent 6 lift has been blended into the mix to not only up curb appeal but also provide plenty of wheel clearance while navigating rugged terrain. The metallic gray draped over the exterior received a freshening up not long ago, and is really looking sharp, showing a nice, deep shine and smooth texture. The entire collection of chrome on display is in good shape and new bumpers take their place both fore and aft and, with its array of badging razor sharp, this vintage Chevy is one vibrant classic. Its exterior alignment looks very precise - the gaps around the doors and hood are tight and even - and clear glass, accompanied by fresh rubber seals, surrounds the cabin.
The interior is in good form here, nicely refurbished with an array of entirely new components while retaining its factory appearance. Just as is the case with the exterior, the burgundy bench seat looks just as clean as it did when this truck began its service, with a combination of cloth and vinyl over its surface showing no real ill effects from wear and sitting over plenty of padding underneath to make even the longest of road trips comfortable. Up front, the dash area is in good order, with a set of factory gauges in the instrument cluster that look surprisingly clear and function as intended and a fresh dash pad spanning the width of the cabin. Take a look in back and you\'ll see the bed area is protected by a liner that\'s been color-matched to the exterior - a nice finishing touch. When cruising behind the wheel of this classic, you\'ll have no trouble staying comfortable, as a new blower motor is on board to send cool or warm air as needed into the cockpit.
You don\'t often come across vintage pickups that run with the reassuring strength that this Chevy possesses. It\'s propelled by a 350 cubic inch ATK crate engine that\'s been armed with Pro Comp aluminum heads and is fed by a 4-barrel carb and exhales into a pair of aftermarket headers to minimize backpressure. This very capable powerplant is paired with a 3-speed automatic TH400 transmission that was rebuilt not long ago and runs through its gears with precision - the rear end has also been recently rebuilt, so this is a very fresh drivetrain. Power steering and power brakes provide the road manners you\'re looking for in everyday driving, and with a simple flick of the lever sitting inside on the transmission tunnel, 4-wheel drive is activated - this truck has plenty of wheel clearance to take advantage of everything the road less travelled might offer. This clean, able-bodied pickup rolls on a set of 15 Rally wheels outfitted with 35x12.5R15 Toyo Open Country tires and sits on a rock-solid foundation - take a glance below and you\'ll see its undercarriage is as clean can be.
Whether you\'re looking for a daily driving truck with classic curb appeal or want to create some great memories off the asphalt, this 1981 Chevrolet K-10 4x4 is up to the challenge. Call today!
