1987 Chevrolet R10 (C10) Short Bed Restomod Pickup Truck

Current eBay Auctions

Thoroughly redesigned from stem to stern, the all-new third generation C/K trucks for 1973 proved to be the longest lived series in Chevrolet’s history and the three-box styling has proved quite popular since. Aside from wheels and hubcaps, there really wasn’t much that was round anywhere in the design other than the body sides that featured a sculpted character line with a central plateau panel as well as curved side glass, a first on a GM truck.

The 1987 model year – the final year of production – saw the series designators changed. The rear-wheel drive C-series became the R-series, then the four-wheel drive K-series were renamed the V-series. This was done to allow for concurrent production of its replacement early in 1987 of the all-new C and K models. The 1987 was the first year of the Fuel Injected Engines and the last year of the GM Square Bodies making the 1987 Chevy R10 one of the most desirable pickup trucks among collectors and enthusiasts!

No Reserve Classics is proud to present our 1987 R10 Pickup Truck for sale. This restomod pickup is the epitome of a show stopper and daily driver with its custom lowered stance and Factory Fuel Injected drivetrain! There is a lot to be said about this square body that makes it one of a kind. If you have been searching for a custom ’80’s Chevy pickup truck that you can cruise around and enjoy then look no further! These trucks are rapidly appreciating in value so now is the time to make the investment!

 

 

Overall this truck makes for one great weekend cruiser between its custom sound system, fuel injected 350, overdrive transmission, and lowered suspension. Although there are many great things to be said about this truck, it is still nonetheless over 30 years old and has never been restored to concours standards. There are minor imperfections that can be found such as small rock chips and dings as this truck has been extensively driven throughout its life. However,  with all of that being said, we would still be very happy to hop in this truck with our family and friends and cruise around town!
