1985 Chevy SWB: An all-new clean sheet redesign of General Motors’ Chevrolet and GMC brand C/K-Series pickups débuted in mid-1972 for the 1973 model year. Development of the new third-generation trucks began in 1968 with vehicle components undergoing simulated testing on computers before the first prototype pickups were even built for real world testing. The redesign was revolutionary in appearance at the time, particularly the cab, departing from typical American pickup truck designs of the era. Aside from being near twins, the Chevrolet and GMC pickups looked like nothing else on the road. The third-generation trucks are colloquially known as the “Square-body” or “Box-body” generation.
We search the US daily for clean, mechanically sound, original Chevy/GMC trucks and locating them is no easy task. When we located this very clean and great driving short bed Silverado, we jumped on the opportunity to purchase it. This C10 has been recently restored and careful attention was taken to keep it looking as original as possible. The 2-tone Indian Bronze and Tan paired with the Saddle Tan Interior is a beautiful color combo on these trucks. The interior, paint, chrome, tires and bedliner are all in excellent condition. The glass is in great condition with exception of 2-3 rock chips in the windshield. Even better than its great looks is the drivability of this classic Chevrolet. As the owner of the dealership, I have personally put 300 miles on this truck and it drives great around town and on the highway. The A/C blows cold and everything works like it should. Features and options include; 305 V8, Auto, 2WD, A/C, Spray-in Bedliner, Chrome Mirrors & Bumpers, Cruise Control, Dual Exhaust, Dual Tanks, Power Steering & Brakes, Power Windows & Locks, Rubber Floormats, Sliding Rear Window, New Kenwood AM/FM/CD/USB/Bluetooth Stereo, Original Owners Manual, Tilt Steering, Tinted Glass, Tire Tools, 15” Rally Wheels, and Thick Hankook Raised White Letter Tires! The industry experts at NADA already value this truck at $20,580 and Hagerty comes in a little stronger at $23,200. Each passing day these trucks become harder to find and are constantly increasing in value. Don’t let this one slip away from you!
