Description
Those who follow the classic car/truck market likely realize that the so-called Square Bodies are very popular. The term comes from the squared-off styling of the 1973 through 1987 Chevrolet/GMC pickups, what many consider to be the proper look for a pickup truck. In this realm, the preferred body type is a standard cab with a short bed, giving the pickup a stout, muscle truck vibe. Here we have a Square Body, specifically a 1987 Chevrolet K10 Silverado short bed 4x4. This short box Chevrolet .....
pickup received a no expense spared frame-off restoration. Highlights include all new glass, chrome bumpers, front grille, taillights, emblems. There are also new roof drip rails, though they havent yet been installed. The body panels are arrow-straight and the high-quality respray looks fantastic. Underneath, the suspension and brakes were completely refurbished, including new Bilstein shocks, new springs, new brake and fuel lines, new exhaust system and new gas tanks. The underside and frame are so clean this pristine pickup earns our Lasagna Car/Truck designation, meaning its so clean under there that wed eat our Sunday pasta dinner off of it. Under the squared-off hood, rather than the anemic 5.0-liter V8 it originally came with is a new GM crate motor: a 5.7 liter (350 cubic-inch) long block that sports a rebuilt throttle body fuel injection system. It's more modern and reliable than an old-fashioned 4-barrel carburetor. The automatic transmission was also rebuilt as was the 4x4 transfer case. The K10 is equipped with power steering and power front disc brakes. Back then, the Silverado moniker stood for the top trim level, before it later became the actual model name for Chevys full-size pickup line. As such, the interior of this truck is plush and nearly every option was checked off as it has air conditioning (converted to R134), tilt steering wheel, cruise control, power windows, power locks, an AM/FM stereo, full instruments and a sliding rear window. Looking like a page out of the 1987 Chevy truck brochure, the interior was completely restored. Highlights include a new dash pad, door panels, carpet, trim, clock, gauges, hardware, and weather stripping. All the brushed aluminum accents are new as well. Everything works, even the clock and the key buzzer. Out on the road, this amazing pickup runs and drives as good as it looks, as only test miles have been added since the nut-and-bolt restoration. If you're looking for one of the best examples of a later (and loaded) Square Body, then youll want to check this one out. We don't expect it to be here too long.
