The right color combination can make or break any vehicle, but this 1987 Chevrolet C10 Silverado pickup looks simply awesome in bright red. It also packs a brawny 350 and a ton of optional equipment, showing us why these trucks remain so popular today.Repainted quite recently, this truck carries a factory-correct color combination and exudes a totally '80s vibe that's still insanely appealing. That's not to say that it's dated, because the square-jawed look of these trucks remains timeless. Park this truck next to one with original paint, and you'll see that the red is vastly deeper and richer than the original stuff, with a shine that puts even the best original paint to shame. The finish reflects straight bodywork underneath, and the hood scoop is a minor upgrade that pays major dividends in the looks department. All the trim was reinstalled, including the billet grille and oversized side mirrors, and it includes a spray-in bed liner for practicality's sake. Chrome bumpers front and rear give the truck an upscale look and a few bright accents around the wheel arches and windows makes it look dressed-up. This is a really nice looking truck.The interior is tasteful in dark red fabric, with a load of comfort and convenience options and a mix of old and new pieces that works well. It's in very good overall condition given that it's now 30 years old, and they upgraded only those things that needed it to keep a consistent look. The door panels, carpets, headliner, and dash pad are remarkably well-preserved, and one glance inside tells you that this was not a stripped-down work truck. Options include cold factory A/C, power windows and locks, cruise control, and a tilt steering column, all of which make this big pickup a true pleasure to drive. The entertainment system has been upgraded to a newer AM/FM/CD stereo system that sounds fantastic, making this a truck that's ready to cruise cross-country at a moment's notice. A sliding rear window is always a welcome accessory, creating draft-free ventilation inside on those days where you don't need the A/C; try it, you'll like it! 350 cubic inches are plenty to get this truck moving and to haul just about anything that'll fit in the bed. A vast majority of these got the smaller 305, so this great-running crate motor really scoots around town easily and has a great muscle car V8 soundtrack to go with it. The engine bay is nicely detailed, including a chrome air cleaner and finned valve covers, but the modifications are minor, including a set of long-tube headers and upgraded plug wires. Turn the key and it starts easily, which is what you'd expect from a small block Chevy, and it feels like a far younger vehicle from behind the wheel. A 700R4 4-speed automatic overdrive transmission makes highway cruising easy and relatively efficient, even with the punchy 3.73 gears and a Posi out back. A Magnaflow dual exhaust system sounds suitably aggressive and it sits on flashy Torque Thrust wheels with fat 255/70/15 white-letter radials all around.A handsome, well-equipped truck that still has a lot of life left in it. Clean ones are getting scarce, and you'll have a hard time find a better color combination than this. Call today!
