We should be glad for guys who love trucks like this 1984 Chevrolet C10 Silverado, because they really care for their wonderful old haulers and we get to pick them up for pennies on the dollar. Showing only 79,325 actual miles and carrying a 5.0L V8 motor, this handsome truck is an affordable machine that looks great and still likes to work, and where else can you get this much charisma and functionality for so little cash?
A full-blown survivor in every aspect of the word, this long-wheel base Silverado is still wearing its original Midnight Blue and White paint scheme that looks stylish and attractive even today. There\'s just no way to make one of these trucks look bad, but the two-tone paint job gives it a no-nonsense appeal that works whether you want to use it as a hauler or slam it and run it as a street machine. It does show a few signs of use, typical of a survivor-grade truck with this mileage and age, but it was never intended to be a trailer queen anyway, and the overall look is more akin to something that should be considerably more expensive. Everything\'s quite straight and with no deviations from the factory recipe, including original badges and big chrome mirrors, it has a handsome look that will always be popular with Chevy fans. Some dealer add-ons were installed for form and function, including the front chin spoiler, the bug deflector on the hood, running boards, dual antennas, and the big, multi-window camper top on top of the bed. And that camper top has really done a good job, because the long bed is neatly presented and shows very little signs of having been used for work. But it\'s certainly more than capable, so get out there and haul something, will you?
Blue is the theme inside, too, where just like the exterior, you\'ll find all original components and materials. The factory bench is still wrapped in durable vinyl material, and it\'s in very good condition with hardly any comfort marks. Matching blue door panels, blue carpets, and an original blue dash pad are likewise nice original pieces that all work together to give the truck a complete look that\'s not dated and not worn out. The original steering wheel hangs on a tilt steering column and all the gauges just beyond it are bone-stock and clear as can be, so you\'ll find yourself at home almost instantly once you slide behind the wheel. After all, hasn\'t everyone with a driver\'s license driven one of these at some point? The options list is long, including factory A/C (needs to be serviced), power windows and locks, the aforementioned tilt column, a CB radio, and even cruise control. The factory AM/FM radio is still in the dash and still functional, and they were smart enough to include a sliding rear window so it stays pleasant and comfortable inside even on hot days.
The great thing about old trucks is that the come with V8 engines; in this truck\'s case, it\'s still running its original 305 cubic inch V8, aka the 5.0L block. Looking completely stock, it runs well, delivering smooth power and torque without a hiccup. Pretty much all of the original components were retained, including the air cleaner, accessories, and even the original stamped steel valve covers and air snorkel are still intact. All the original wiring remains in great condition, and belts, hoses, plugs, wires, and other components have been attended to under the care of a single family ownership, although the truck has been sitting without much use for the last couple years, so a quick tune-up might come in handy before you set out on a long journey. The most notable sign of maintenance is the newer exhaust system underneath, but even it\'s still running a catalytic convertor set-up, so it\'s ready for emissions in every state in the Union. The heavy-duty 700R4 4-speed automatic transmission with overdrive still offers crisp shifts, the power steering and power front disc brake system ensure a great ride quality, and the big truck sits on a set of origi
