Default 80 Chevy K10 SWB

Well here is something that is far from a super car, but thought some of you may appreciate how original this is.

1980 Chevy K10 4x4 SWB. 350 4 speed Cheyenne package. 56,000 miles, most all original paint. Lifelong AZ truck. Complete owner history (original owner til 2019). Original interior, 8 track stereo, sliding rear window, A/C, & chrome bumpers.

I unloaded this off of the transporter a bit over a week ago. All I've been doing is driving this around til today. All I have done is change the fluids, tune on it a little, and enjoy.

I'll post some progress pics as I get through the truck. Wait til you see the bottom of this thing. I'll wait til I can get it on the lift for that.......

Day 2 4x4

Tim

That's a totally neat one, inside and out! My uncle used to have a nice K10 back in the days and it was one of my fav back then. I'm visiting his garage soon for the installation of the shocks and brake pads plus tire mounting and balancing on his new Wrangler project. I'll see if he still got some photos of the old short bed.

I changed the wheels (more to my liking) and leveled out the rear suspension. Next, the #7 rub down and clean the bottom, engine compartment, etc. I'll realign the doors and replace the sagging rear cab mounts I suspect after that, I just run the wheels off of it.

Love southern vehicles. They are so clean.
The slot wheels are a huge improvement, but, personally, I would have turned the white letters in.
