The “square body Chevy” is one of the best and most popular GM truck platforms ever produced. Introduced as the replacement for the also classic 1967-1972 generation, the square body had a lot to live up to! Though consumers may have been initially suspicious, the square body quickly proved itself a worthy replacement. Both the Chevrolet and GMC versions of these trucks are sought after today both as a collector vehicle and a reliable workhorse. Those that survived use as an industrial vehicle, like this 1984 Silverado long bed, are a rare example and certainly a hot commodity these days! A square body K10 long bed is possibly one of the most desirable of these trucks. With 'K' designating 4 wheel drive, a K10 is what anyone looking for a capable truck needs!
This is a nearly stock, largely unmolested, 1984 Silverado square body. Offered in the classic and eye-catching color combination of blue on blue, this pickup has survived 35 years without being abused, heavily modified, or otherwise used up. Tasteful aftermarket upgrades include a modern radio, rally wheels, and dual exhaust. Aside from those upgrades, this truck is basically exactly how it rolled off the lot back in the '80s! This is a vehicle that has simply been maintained. Though you may find minor wear and scratches in the paint finish, this can certainly be expected on a vehicle this old. The exterior is in overall great condition and needs nothing to be enjoyed as-is.
The interior, much like the rest of the truck, is in great original condition aside from a recovered bench seat and new carpet. All original items are showing some age, but are in good overall condition for regular use. The light blue interior is a great match to the dark blue exterior! The new material on the seats really makes the color pop. If you're looking for a time machine back to the late 1980s, this just might be your ride! Equipped with power windows, however, the passenger side is not operational.
Under the hood is a carburetor 5.7 liter Chevrolet V8 (AKA Chevy 350). This truck was originally equipped with a 5.7 rather than the anemic 5.0 (305) engine. While this truck isn't fast, it isn't meant to be. For a reliable workhorse, this Silverado would be a perfect vehicle for anything from house projects to light towing. The engine runs great and feels strong. Hooked up to a 700R4 automatic transmission, this truck would be a great daily driver or around town errand runner.
Though the introduction of the GMT400 marked the impending end of the square body in 1988, the 1980s were quite possible the heyday of these wonderful vehicles. Unmolested, un-modified examples like this are getting harder and harder to find! This truck won't last long! If you're after a good quality, light use pickup this just might be the vehicle for you!
