1985 Chevrolet Other Pickups Custom Deluxe Additional Info:

Offering an appealingly rugged appearance and 4-wheel drive surefootedness, this 1985 Chevrolet K-10 Custom Deluxe features a strong level of authenticity, with just a couple of aftermarket components blended into the mix to make for an elevated driving experience. Whether you opt to take it home and get the road bound fun started right away, or put in some work to elevate its game, this truck has a lot going for it. Wearing a coat of... fresh red paint over its exterior, this '85 is a very solid representative of Chevy's well-respected circa mid-'80s full size truck in its agile, four wheel drive form. With their unabashed rugged, boxy shape, these third generation K-10s developed a strong following - there's little surprise that Chevy kept the generation largely intact, with only fairly minor modifications for a full 14 years. Its short bed and stepsides enhance its already stout appearance - this is a vital and capable looking vintage pickup in its present state and with just a little minor aesthetic work here and there, could be even more than that. Its sturdy construction has served it well over the years - take a lap around and you'll see all the signs of a nice, straight body, including tight even gaps surrounding the doors and a cab area that meshes nicely with the bed area in back. From to front to back, all exterior chrome is securely in place and the cabin glass is surrounded by fresh rubber seals. The interior remains in stock configuration, with a clean bench seat at its center that's covered in well-fitted burgundy vinyl as it sits over fresh carpeting, bracketed by door panels that sit flush to their surrounding steel. The factory steering wheel is still perched on the tilting column and the original gauges in the instrument panel just beyond it are clear and functional. This workhorse was equipped with factory air conditioning upon rolling off the assembly line - the components are all still in place and the compressor blows plenty strong, so all that is likely needed is a simple freon charge to get the feature back up and running. In back, the bed area is lined with fresh wooden planks that have been well prepped and are nice and level between their stainless steel reinforcements. The inner walls of the bed area are glossy and ramrod straight, showing no dings from shifting cargo. Should you opt to put this classic to work hauling a trailer, you'll be one step ahead - a trailer brake has already been installed and awaits the addition of a hitch in back. This truck is propelled by period correct power, via a 305 cubic inch V8 at the center of an engine compartment with a nicely maintained appearance. It's still wearing its stock heads and has been equipped with a new Holley 4-barrel carb for some added muscle as it teams with a 3-speed automatic transmission that's shifting nice and smooth. When the call of rugged terrain beckons, this K-10's 4-wheel drive is easily activated by a lever on the transmission tunnel and the feature is in good working order to provide confidence-inspiring surefootedness. Power steering makes for easy navigation and power brakes that position discs up front provide ample stopping power as this sharp pickup patrols the road on its set of impressively clean 15" stock rims wrapped with Michelin LTX M/S tires. With its blend of rugged looks, vintage authenticity and 4-wheel drive agility, this 1985 Chevrolet K-10 Custom Deluxe would be a great acquisition for the classic truck enthusiast who enjoys detours off the asphalt for some exhilarating off-roading.
