1980 Chevy K10 Short Bed: 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. Trim lines were also revamped, ranging from the entry-level Custom to the Custom Deluxe, Cheyenne and top-end Cheyenne Super. They were shuffled for 1975, with the Scottsdale moniker replacing the Cheyenne Super as the top-of-the-line package, while the Custom series was deleted. The next year, Chevy was back up to four trim lines with the addition of the Silverado at the top of the series. By and large, this remained the trim hierarchy for the remainder of series production. 1980 had a one-year-only front end with a flatter front grille and square headlights. It proved to be a preview for 1981 and the rest of the production run, with an all new simplified front clip, new hood, and single plane grille.
This exceptional classic Chevy truck arrived a few months ago and had the typical issues. It needed the A/C system serviced and a range of small cosmetic issues. Because it was such a desirable truck we felt the only proper route was to go through the entire truck and address all that we could within reason. It is not a 100% perfect show truck but it looks amazing and will make the new owner very proud. What drew us to acquire the truck was the combination of all the right options. How often do you find a clean short bed 4×4? Add to that …. highly desirable silver & blue two-tone paint, bucket seats, sliding rear window, cruise control, and a factory tach! The truck drives great, the A/C blows cold, and we recently installed a high-end Spray-in Bedliner. Additional features and options includes; 350 V8, Auto, 4×4, A/C, Bucket Seats, Center Console Storage, Chrome Mirrors & Bumpers, Chrome Grille, Chrome Tailgate Cap, Cruise Control, Dual Tanks, Dual Exhaust, Power Steering & Brakes, Retro AM/FM Radio, Sliding Rear Window, Tachometer, Tilt Steering, Tinted Glass, Tire Tools, 15″ Factory Rally Wheels and Thick 33×12.5 R15 Tires!
