1984 Chevrolet C/K Pickup 1500 Additional Info:

This is an extremely nice 1984 Chevrolet K10 Pickup. I have had the vehicle since 2012 and have put a ton of money into getting it to the condition it is in now. This was my dream truck growing up and I searched for several years until I came across this one, a good condition southern step side truck with no rust. I found this one hiding out in Louisiana. It had been partially restored by the previous owner who hated to sell it but needed to for financial reasons. I have several automotive shops of my own and love project vehicles. I am a die-hard Chevy guy and fell in love with the truck when I first saw it. With the step side trucks becoming almost impossible to find I enjoyed having something more rare than the average old school Chevy truck

EXTERIOR/ DRIVETRAIN

Upon bringing it back to Houston I completely disassembled the drive train and went through everything rebuilding or cleaning all parts to like new condition. I rebuilt the transfer-case, Turbo 350 transmission, and engine top end (all new seals, heads rebuilt, new intake and rebuilt carburetor, plugs, wires, distributor). It received a full tune up and all new fluids. I converted the A/C and purchased all new components. I painted it a Metallic Silver and at this time added a steel Goodmark cowl hood. The step side bed is in great condition and an aluminum floor was added. The headers looked great but I wanted the old school look of that era and had them professionally heat wrapped. The exhaust is custom as well. It is a 3" true dual exhaust. I added a straight pipe dump out right after the header so it can sound like a monster truck if needed. It routes back in the center of the vehicle into an x pipe and then through two bullet mufflers and dumps right between he shocks of the rear axle. Gearing is 4:11 front and rear

INTERIOR

New vinyl seat covers, new carpet, and added seatbelts. The radio in it now came with the truck and was working before it was parked at my shop but now does not turn on for some reason. Most likely minor I just don't have the time to mess with it anymore.

SUSPENSION/WHEELS/TIRES

The truck sits on a custom suspension set up. It was taken to ALL OUT OFFROAD in Richmond where it was lifted approximately 5" while keeping the original 3" body lift. Custom double shock hoops in the front, double steering stabilizers, double shocks on each side in the rear as well. There are a total of 10 Full Throttle Suspension shocks with piggy backs on the truck ($400/piece). It sits on 20x14 fuel Hostage wheels and 37x13.50 Nitto Trail Grapplers that are like new.

The Bad

A/C blower fan sometimes slips and you can hear the belt whine.A/C blows cold but might need a recharge from sitting. Engine should probably have carb tuned as it has been sitting. Radio was working now doesn't turn on. Minor leaks from sitting will be taken care of before vehicle is delivered to new owner. Chrome shocks should be polished (look great now but if you were going to get them like brand new).


BOTTOM LINE

The truck was fully restored and has sincebeen sitting as a show piece in doors at one of my shops. I start it once a week or so to keep fluids moving. It would take a very thorough detail, buff/wax, and polish and it would be turn-key show worthy. As you can see from one of the pictures before and after the vehicle has been sitting the engine aluminum needs to be cleaned/polished. I haven't detailed the engine compartment in about a yearso it is very dirty as shown in one picture. it would clean up with some effort.This thing is absolutely beautiful and gets thumbs up and compliments by everyone that sees it. There is nothing else like it on the road. I love to look at it and enjoyed the journey getting it to this point but do not have the time anymore as I have taken on a few new projects. I hope someone else will enjoy it as much as I have. CLEAN TEXAS TITLE.

Engine has always been reliable. No overheating and starts every time. This is a finished project truck ready for someone's personal touches. It is ready to drive or sit pretty.

**I encourage any buyer to look at the vehicle beforehand if they would like. I run an open shop and an honest business. feel free to ask any questions and I will do my best to help. I do not have to sell this or will I give it a way. These vehicles are becoming harder to find and their values aregoing up. I look forward to this truck going to a good home.

I have the reserve set very reasonable. Do your research and you will have a difficult time finding one in this condition, let alone a step side.
