Chevrolet C-10 1987 Description

Up for sale is my fully restored 1987 Chevrolet C-10 with the Silverado package. This is a super rare truck! It is the last year for this body style and platform, the very first year they introduced fuel injection on the truck line, it has the top rated 350 engine, the top trim package being the Silverado, and a overdrive transmission. . I had planned on keeping this a very long time but a little over a week ago I seriously injured my hand and it will require a few expensive surgeries. I will also be laid up for some time so having this high end toy is not in my families best interest at this time. I spared no expense in making sure it would be safe, durable, and a head turner.
It has just been completed after a pain staking full frame up 4 month restoration. Every bolt was touched on this restoration. This is a real numbers matching truck It came equipped with a 350 Fuel injected TBI engine, and a Automatic overdrive transmission . Its color is the exact copy of the original metallic gray and metallic indigo blue. The interior is fully restored to its exact original color and trims.
This C-10 drives amazingly well. It is as close to new as you can get without a time machine! It starts right up on first turn every time, its idle is excellent, and it handles perfectly at any speed. You can drive it anywhere, but given how nice it is, it’s a perfect candidate to be a trailer queen.
For those of you who require catalytic converters your in luck because this is a true dual system. It has two manifold that each run into their own cats and then to their own mufflers before each being directed out the rear of the truck below the rear bumper. It sound really nice but not obnoxious. The system was ceramic coated metallic silver using Summit racing sealer paint front to back in order to seal and protect it for many years to come.
I will try to itemize everything that was done but it may be easier to say what wasn’t done! As I stated every bolt was touched. I can only display 24 pictures for this listing and that is difficult since I have hundreds of them. They were taken during the restoration to show how even the simplest of things were taken down and restored.
The body has over 500 man hours of labor in it. The results are amazing and be durable for many years to come. The entire truck top to bottom was stripped down and then coated in multiple layers of sealer primmer. The underside of the truck was blasted down and repainted correct chassis black. . It received five coats of black. The body was shot with two stage basecoat and clear coat top finish.
The engine compartment was blasted and stripped down. The engine went thru a mild rebuild top to bottom.The entire cooling system was redone and changed to a far better and more modern high cooling setup. The system was fully flushed and cleaned out. It was refilled with Prestone 50/50 antifreeze.
The following were replaced:

Great care was taken to take it all apart and then both those loose screws were each removed, cleaned, and then reinstalled using a thread lock so that this issue should not arise again. The column was then reassembled.While it was open I replaced the

    The flooring has custom molded carpeting with padding. The rear compartment was originally black cardboard but over time it turned to trash so the entire rear area has new black felt material. I felt it would be better to have the carpet match the entire interior and have the black felt match the original black cardboard.Most of the interior parts were reinstalled using stainless steel fasteners where appropriate.
    The sun visors were originally a vinyl material. It was sewn and covered with the same fabric as the new cloth headliner. A new headliner was sewn to the exact specifications as the original one with the exception that the new material is a more modern padded headliner cloth fabric. It is an exact match to the carpet.

    This is a super solid truck and will last a very long time. There were no shortcuts taken to achieve this final product. This being said it is a 30 year old truck and classified as a antique. It will not be perfect. If your looking for a new truck then I suggest that’s what you buy. This truck is as close to new as anyone can get without a time machine! This looks like a truck you would see walking into the showroom in 1987! You can eat off the engine bay or any part of the truck frankly. The interior does have that awesome new car smell since so much of it is new.
