Up for auction is one 1993 Chevy S10 King Cab Pickup. This has been a project of mine for the past year or so. It is only for sale because I have acquired an S10 Blazer project and can't keep both. This truck has been my daily driver and parts hauler for my street rod business since I have owned it. I wouldn't be afraid to drive it anywhere. The truck itself has just over 198,000 miles but the engine has been replaced. I was told it was a GM replacement but I have NO proof of that all I can tell you is that at a 3,000 mile oil change the oil is still brown, not dirty and black, and that it doesn't use oil between changes. It is fuel injected and runs, drives, idles excellent. It drives like the ones I had back in the 90's when they were new. I believe it has the original clutch in it and I have not replaced that. I have spent over $3,000 on it in the time I have owned it. I intended to put a V8 in it but after seeing how good it runs and finding that it gets 24-25MPG hwy, I decided to leave the engine alone. The AC has been converted to 134a and has a VERY slow leak. It could stand Freon right now. The AC was charged almost a year ago and it has taken until now to leak down. My intent was to gas it and leave it alone since it stayed up almost a year. Under the hood is very clean and the exposed surfaces of the motor are still aluminum colored not oily and dirty. The following are the new parts I have installed since I owned it:
17x7 American Racing Torq Thrust Wheels with 215/45 and 235/55 Nexen tires ( approximately 3,000 miles )
Western Chassis 2" drop spindles
Western Chassis 2" drop coils
3" rear drop blocks
Front Brake Hoses
Front Ceramic Brake Pads
Inner and outer wheel bearings
New Rear Window Rubber (Replaced Sliding Window with a flat glass)
New Pop Out King Cab Window hardware (pivots and latch hardware, screws, etc)
New Tailpipe (muffler had been replaced when I bought it)
Front Marker Lights
Front Parking Lights
Front Smooth Bumper
Blazer Rear Bumper
Aluminum Fender Trim
Billet Specialties Shifter
Outside mirrors replaced with smaller style mirrors
It just had the oil changed and a new air filter installed
Front air dam
Drivers side door hinge pins and bushings.
The interior is what you would expect from a 1993 truck with 198K miles. The seats aren't torn but they are stained in places and the carpet also has some stains. The cloth on the door panels could stand attention. The pics of the interior are worth a thousand words.
Over all this is a really good truck you can go to a cruise in as is or you could continue to make a few improvements and have a really nice truck. It gets compliments everywhere we take it and when we wanna hit a cruise in and leave the old car at home, we have been driving the S10. Its very comfortable and cruises at highway speeds no problem. It never runs hot. It drips a small drip from the trans seal but that's all. The rearend seems to be fine and doesn't make noise.
The only problems I know with the truck are the following:
It has had the king cab jump seats removed. I intended to put the speakers in the sides of the cab but didn't get that completed
The headliner board is out and will be included so the new owner can re-cover it or LMC has the updated ABS plastic one.
It has rust (Visible but not holes) in the left lower cab corner that will need addressed if the truck is painted. Right now you don't really notice it when the truck is sitting unless you get down and look.
The AC needs Freon as mentioned above
It has its share of dings and scratches you'd expect for its age. Its had the plastic bed liner removed which shows typical rubbing on the bed ribs from the liner. The bed isn't beat up and dented up though. I had intended to do a spray in. The body has some shallow dents that aren't easy to get a photo to show and that aren't visible in all light conditions.
This is a really solid truck and I have done my best to describe it fairly and accurately. I believe in fair eBay listings. I have looked for a good king cab for a long time and this is the one I chose. That speaks for its condition. I have owned many of these. Its better than 95% of the ones you will find of its age. I wouldn't be selling it if I hadn't found an S10 Blazer just as solid. If you are local, come have a look, bring cash and someone to drive your old truck home because you will buy this truck! If you have questions call 423-823-2111 before 10PM EST and I will be glad to talk to you and/or answer your questions. I have a reserve set for the truck and the Buy It Now price. You would be hard pressed to find one then put this much new stuff on it, for the Buy It Now price.
