1988 Chevrolet S10 Pickup
1988 Chevrolet S10 Pickup
There is much debate as to exactly why truck is called the S10, and the answer, at least the one I'm going with is because it comes from Chevrolet brass, is that the S designation in them means small cab, the 10 is because of the 1/2 ton payload capacity? I'm sure there is another answer out there, and once this truck hits eBay, all the “experts” will be chiming in, as eBay seems to have an overabundance of these! (sic)
Two owners from the same family have owned this low original 43,323 mileage Tahoe edition with two tone paint, and a cap over the bed. A fine running truck can be used as a truck for the cabin, or on the farm as cosmetically it is not perfect, but with the low miles and smooth-running engine, it has a long life ahead for someone out there.
This two tone Tahoe in tan and green shows nicely. Paint has a few dents and dings and slight chip offs but overall is good. The roof and cap are faded, and the cap has paint chipping off around the side windows. Trimmings are solid and shiny, and wheels are standard issue from GM wrapped in 205/75R14 rubber from 1997.
Camel is the interior color and it's all over the interior in various shades of light and dark. Door panels are in nice clean condition, and a bench seat has tuck and roll broadcloth with shiny vinyl darker bolsters. A darker tan dash mixes with black panels and houses all the controls needed to operate this truck. In back the bed has a rubber liner, and as noted previously has a fiberglass bed cap.
Underneath the hood is looking like new. Highly detailed and very clean we see a 2.8 liter V6 with EFI, shoehorned into the clean surrounding bay. On the back a 700R4 4-speed automatic transmission is on, and a 10-bolt rear spins the back wheels.
Some surface rust is seen coating suspension and shows slightly on the frame. Floor pans and rockers are all black and structurally sound. Independent coil spring suspension is in front, and leaf springs are on back. Power disc braking is upfront, and power drums are on the back.
A quick starter and very smooth idle from this V6. It drives great and handles nicely with good solid power braking, and easy power steering. The A/C blows warm, the HVAC only blows to the defroster and the floor, as the airflow does not change when the sliders are pushed around.
2 Owners, and well cared for by the same family who make up the two owners. All in nice clean condition, not perfect, but perfectly suited to the person who will buy it.
