Classic Car Overview

Who didnt want one of these trucks, lifted and sitting tall, back when they were new? Well, its time to relive the past with this 1978 Chevrolet K10 pickup, which has obviously enjoyed a rather significant makeover. With in-your-face looks and go-anywhere capabilities, its big fun on or off the pavement. The cool copper color isnt original, but they probably would have loved it in 1978. It looks right, regardless of age, and this awesome Chevy wears it proudly. It was repainted a few years ago, but judging from the details and the hard-to-reach areas of the body, bright red was this trucks original color. You cant argue with how good it looks on the clean, chiseled lines of the K10 and the finish quality is on-par with the build quality of the rest of the truck. Its shiny, well-applied, and covering some straight sheetmetal, but at the same time, its not so flawless that youre afraid to use this truck to its full potential. Theres lots of shiny trim to accentuate that coppery paint, including the factory stainless moldings on the sides of the body and the satin black bumpers just look butch. Theres also a big Warn winch up front that only helps with the do-anything vibe. Even the bed is nicely finished, probably too nice to do the kind of heavy hauling this truck is capable of doing. Someone obviously loved this Chevy. The handsome tan interior is largely stock and for 1978, youll be impressed by the luxury accommodations. The wide bench seat wears a more recent cover thats in great shape, and the door panels look new, too. This truck offers factory A/C, so its quite comfortable year round and the instruments are bright and crisp. A newer AM/FM/CD stereo lives in the dash, but that and the tan dash cover are the only notable modifications to the interior. A sliding rear window works in concert with the vent windows to make the interior pleasant on those days when you dont quite need the A/C, and rubber floor mats mean its low maintenance when youre out playing in the mub. The condition of the sparkling engine bay suggests that while this truck looks off-road ready, it hasnt spent much time there. The 350 cubic inch V8 looks quite stock, and pulls the big rig around without working too hard. Theres a 4-barrel carburetor up top and a great-sounding dual exhaust system, but for the most part it appears to have been built for reliability first and foremost. Backed by a sturdy TH350 3-speed automatic transmission and 2-speed transfer case, the driveline is tough enough to handle just about anything. While youre under there, check out the modest lift kit with new Rough Country shocks at each corner, beefy leaf springs, and heavy-duty axles that dont mind a little hard work. Of course, a truck like this wouldnt be possible without power steering and brakes, so despite its size its relatively easy to maneuver in traffic. Great-looking wheels suite the trucks personality and carry mammoth 35x12.50-15 Pro Comp all-terrain tires that look like theyll climb a wall. A very cool truck with few modifications and a classic look. Admit it, you thought this was cool when you were a kid, and whos to say anything has changed. You want it, all you have to do is call!
