Hemmings Find of the Day: 1985 Chevrolet K10 Silverado

Published in

Fully documented 1985 Chevrolet K10 Silverado for sale on From the seller’s description:

This truck comes with all original paper work and original manuals from 10-21-1985, the date of original purchase from Paul Bailey Chevrolet in North Carolina. It is truly like a time capsule. Trucks from this time period in this condition with original paperwork, manuals and key are very hard to find, and ad in this amazing color and it becomes a nearly impossible find. This is a true gem for any truck lover.

This truck is as clean as it comes and has been very well cared for over the years. I’ve done extensive research on it’s history and the truck appears to have been cherished and well maintained from it’s original owner who died in 2017.

The carafe is flawless and confirms what I’ve been told prior to buying the truck.

I was told it had a 2-stage re-spray of the Yuba Gold applied.

Classic chrome bumpers

Front hubs are Warn manual units.

15” factory GM Rally wheels provide nice accents

Vinyl seats and carpets are in very good condition.

For comfort and convenience, the K-10 has A/C, power tinted windows/locks, tilt wheel, cruise and a full gauge package.

The truck was fitted with a retro sound radio to keep with the classic look while offering modern convenience.

This Silverado is powered by the 305ci small-block that was rebuilt and fitted with a 600 Holley. It is mated to a 3-sp/OD Turbo-Hydramatic transmission and fully functional transfer case with 2WH/4WH/N/4WL. Other mechanical enhancements include: power steering, power disc/drum brakes, BFG Radial T/A All-Terrain tires and a 2” HD trailer hitch for more serious work.

Once I took delivery of this time capsule I had a full service, extensive detail, California smog and new battery put in.

It is an absolute pleasure to drive and starts on the first crank. This truck is perfect for a daily driver or to be put away in a collection.

This truly is a rare find.

Comes with a professional print of the truck to hang in your garage along with a custom handmade brass keychain.
