1986 Chevrolet K-10 Pickup
1986 Chevrolet K-10 Pickup
While relatively straight-lined and boxy in appearance, (leading to their "Square-body" nickname from the public), the Rounded Line trucks were the first generation of the C/K to be designed with the use of computers and wind tunnels, optimizing the exterior shape for lower drag and improved fuel economy. The chassis was an all-new design, (with all trucks receiving a leaf-spring rear suspension); K-Series trucks moved to all-wheel drive, (shift-on-the-fly 4x4 was introduced for 1981).
For consignment, a “square body” GM labeled “rounded design” pickup truck with a K designation. This means it's a 4x4, and our model shown here has been lifted 4 inches with leaf springs. It has been garage kept, has original paint and rust free steel, and a powerful 305ci V8. Classic Trucks are hot right now and we see a trend for owners to use them as a promotional piece for their businesses. A little promotion won't hurt will it? Also it has the ability to get a little mud on the tires.
Square and rectangle design abound right upfront with the horizontal egg crate grille flanked by stacked headlights and turn signals in square and rectangle form. A big bumper protects the front and a nice bowtie badge sits in the center. All steel with well minded gaps is bathed in midnight black which shows well for being original. Two doors, a shiny large mirror hanging from either side and all correct badging. Window trimmings are blackened. The bed has a liner which shows in good condition having limited usage. On the back, is a solid gate and shiny bumper which has the tail lights floating off of each side of the box. The cab roof is also painted black and dives down to the bed and sports a sliding window for the airflow. Very shiny 15 inch wheels are on all 4 corners, and wrapped with 35x12.5R15 all weathers with a 37th week of 2018 manufacture date.
All original in Silverado trimming, showing crank windows and manual golf T locks, and all bathed in gray molded vinyl which shows nicely. The black vinyl bench is tuck and roll black and has a nice patina with age. The standard dash is within along with the Silverado trim stippled black molded panel for the extra gauges available on this particular dash. The original steering wheel fronts this dash which has an AM/FM radio. Black rubber flooring with a slight texture can handle the wilds of anything the outside world can throw at it. The 4x4 shifter resides on the hump, and above is a pressed black solid steel headliner also in black.
Under the hood in an un restored original engine bay it shows her age but is still buttoned up. It has the factory 305 V8, a single 4 barrel carburetor feeding it, and on back is a 700R4 4-speed automatic transmission. This pushes power rearward to a 10 bolt rear and with the pull of a lever power also goes to the front 10 bolt axle. Fab!
Like the engine bay original with some surface rust on the horizontal struts which support the floorboards, and on the leaf springs. Road dirt, and some chip off undercoated pointing abound. A shiny new exhaust is now on and is courtesy Dynomax. Leaf springs are all around and as noted they provide a 4 inch lift. Power disc braking is on front, and power drums for the rear.
As expected this truck came right to life and was hitting on all 8 cylinders right out of the gate. We were off and it drives beautifully, switches seamlessly into 4x4 mode, and handles nicely for a high truck. Brakes are solid, and all was fun working 4x4 order.
A great example from 1986, original body and paint, and engine and transmission. Lifted 4 inches and like new tires wrapping shiny wheels. Classic 4x4 pickup ready for service.
