Custom 1978 Chevrolet K10 1500 Pickup Truck 4x4 Lifted
Just some quick clips of my 1978 Chevy K10 Pickup. This was my first project truck when I was just a youngster in high school.
The truck started its life with a 400 small block V8 and a turbo 350 transmission. My father purchased it from a rancher who was the original owner. I was with my dad when he bought it and the old rancher and his wife both cried when the truck left. My dad used it for many years as a hunting truck. When I turned 16 and got my license, I asked my dad if I could fix the old truck up. He asked me what I wanted to do to it, and when I told him my plans, he agreed.
I took the truck to my high school's auto shop because I had signed up for an engine building class. We pulled the stock 400 and purchased a 350 small block with a 4 bolt main from a local wrecking yard. Smith Auto machined the block, bored it out .030 over, blue printed it, and balanced it with a 400 crank. The 383 stroker was born.
Keith Black flat top pistons, Eagle rods, Scorpion billet roller tip rockers, 202 heads with over-sized 3 angled valves, Melling high volume oil pump, 7 quart oil pan, Edelbrock Performer camshaft and intake manifold, MSD pro billet distributor, Edelbrock 750 carb, and Summit Racing truck headers made the beast roar through true dual Flowmaster 40 series mufflers. The truck never saw a Dyno, but was pushing around 425 horsepower and would smoke both of the 35" tires from a roll.
The first trip to the dunes with the new motor destroyed the original transmission. It was rebuilt with a heavy duty torque converter and a B&M stage 2 shift kit which barked the tires in 2nd and shifted very hard.
California smog laws are strict so eventually the 383 had to go and a milder 350 was built to take its place. The truck was sold with the 350 in it as seen in this video.
It was on a Rancho 6" lift, springs in the front, blocks in the back. It had a limited slip rear differential with 3.73 gears. It had 17" billet wheels and 35"x12.50" BFG Mud Terrains. The paint color was Dodge Viper RT/10 Red. All chrome molding was shaved. It had an aluminum four core radiator and chrome differential covers. Also had Rancho RS9000 air shocks adjustable from in the cab. Interior was two tone gray tweed and vinyl with Autometer Ultra Lite NASCAR gauges. Dash and door panels were wrapped in vinyl, dash had billet accents. Custom Sony Xplod MP3 stereo system with two 6x9s in the doors and two 6.5s in the kick panels with two 12" subwoofers behind the seat in a custom molded and carpeted box. Subs were powered by a 1200 watt amp, plus the stereo's 200 watts made the system 1400 watts. The truck was converted to an electronic Holley fuel pump. Truck had a steel push bumper with a hidden Ramsey 8000 lb winch.

1975 Chevy Stepside Shortbed K10 4X4 C10 pickup Chevrolet GMC
This is a rare 1975 Chevy k10 half ton stepside shortbed Pickup truck.
Chevrolet sure made this classic looking bed for an awaful long time its
basically the same as in the late forties just diff fenders and it really
gives these trucks a nice classic look. This truck is a Blast to drive and
has a VERY powerful 383 stroker motor in it and big ole 35" Mudders. The
truck looks good but the beauty and money spent is in the lift and the
motor and tranny there was over $10,000 dumped into the motor and trans and
lift. Here is some off the info i put in the EBAY ad
This truck runs great. It has the 383 Stroker Motor in it and this
thing is mean and sounds even meaner with the custom dual Exhaust coming out the back behind both tires.
The tranny is rebuilt and has a higher stall torque converter. I believe
the gears are 4 10/4 11 it gets it... Just about everything inside and out
on this truck is custom. These are one of the best motors you can put in
these trucks. The put out a town of power and sound great. It has newer
Holley Valve Covers, New Edelbrock intake and chrome cover and Hooker
Headers. This truck was done right. I was told the motor has about 5000
miles on it and thats what it runs like. There is a leak from what I see is
a valve cover. I show that in the Video... The truck fires right up. It has
a stall converter on the tranni which allows you to reach higher RPM before
shifting. The motor and undercarriage are both just as clean as can be. The
idea the other guy had was to finish the motor and underneath tires and
wheels and lift etc. Then repaint in 3-5 years when it faded out but needed
a car driving 100 miles a day for work ONE WAY! So thats why it wasn't
finished and thats why It's for sale. I can have the truck painted and all
the metal work done for about $2800 to $3500 or just drive it around
EVERYBODY looks at it.
The exterior of this truck looks good but does need some work. It is
painted a nice bright yellow but it wasn't quite prepped right and has misc
issues. Please watch the Video I show them all up close etc. and do a walk
around and a test drive.... It still looks good but up close you can see
some blemishes. The truck has been lifted quite a ways as you can see. I
believe it is a 6" to a 9" lift not for sure...The truck was done right.
Has a very nice set of Polished Aluminum Weld Wheels and 35" Mudder Tires
that have between 70%-80% tread left. It is a really nice combo and look
really good on the truck. Has an aftermarket grill put in, The corrosion
seemed to be mostly in the bottom of door and cab corner and was repaired
but is a older Amature paint job I would say it was a 6 to a 7 on a 1-10
when it was fresh now it looks GREAT but if you really start looking you
will see some things I show them in the Video. Does have the towing package
with a drop hitch for easy towing. The bed has A Plywood bottom Not orig
slats and has a black bed cover going over it. This truck has it all.
The interior is in good condition on this truck but not perfect.
Although better then most older trucks you will see in could use a couple
things. The door panels look good but do show some wear and the bottom
parts are missing and you can see the speakers. There are amp wires in the
back but no amp.. as you see in the video I sell amps etc. and will give
you a smoking deal on a new Amp $65 to $200 depending on what you want etc.
The seats are in good condition. The carpets look like they were redone at
some point because they are in great shape. The gauges have all been
changed out and Digital Gauges put in which I think looks cool and gives
more of a modern look. NOT ONLY THAT there are switches on the dash that
will give you the 1/4 mile readout and a whole host of other info 0 to 60
time,,, etc. Aftermarket Sony CD Player with remote has been installed.
My website always has lots of Unique and interesting cars. Make sure
and look at all my other videos on here. I have over 180 cars for sale. You
can see my website at Http://www.missoulaautoauction.com and if your
looking to Export that is no problem i will help You Import or Export to
ANY country Shipping is pretty reasonable. Make sure and call me anytime...
