This 1987 Chevy C10 Pick up has been through a full nut and bolt, chassis up rebuild. Squarebody chevy trucks like this have soared in popularity and value over the last ten years and this being an 87 model is the absolute last of them. The ones that everyone wants are the short wheel base trucks like this one which has been through an extensive nut and bolt restoration.

Starting with the body, it was completely separated from the chassis before being prepped for paint. Any necessary repairs were made before the truck was completely repainted inside and out in a deep metallic burgundy. Even the inside of the tub is straight and gloss painted to match the outside. The chrome bumpers, front grille, lights and badges were all either refinished or replaced. The look externally is completed with the truck sitting down low over a set of 20” polished American racing wheels.

Inside the truck again is new from top to bottom. The floors have been covered in fresh burgundy carpets and the bench seat has been retrimmed in a high quality burgundy leather in a factory style tuck and roll. The dash and gauges have all been refurbished and there is a nice aftermarket steering wheel. Even the headliner is all new and colour matched and there are three point seat belts for safety. As far as pick ups go, this is loaded with luxuries, not only is the seat leather but the truck is fitted with power steering, power brakes and air conditioning.

Under the bonnet is the original 350ci TBI fuel injected 350ci V8 engine. The engine bay presents better than it would ever have been from the factory with the engine itself highly detailed, painted inner guards as well as new bolts and hardware everywhere. The engine is paired to the factory 700R4 automatic transmission. Power is fed to the rear wheels via the factory differential. Everything underneath the car has been rebuilt or replaced with the same level of finish and detail extending to the undercarriage.

These short wheel base Chevy Squarebody pick ups have a huge following and for good reason. They are old enough to still be cool and nostalgic but modern enough to actually drive well and have a few more modern creature comforts. We rarely see these trucks fully restored to a high level here in Australia and this would have to be right up there with one of the best we have seen.
