1964 Chevrolet K10 4×4

Located in the Los Angeles, California area, this 1964 Chevrolet K10 truck is a factory 4WD Pickup and one of only 564 made. You can see it here exclusively on Barn Finds Classifieds for a sale price of $11,600. The truck has been restored mechanically but clearly shows its patina and years of weathering on the outside. Check out the cool front bumper that the owner installed!

The truck is powered by a 350 cubic inch V8 Chevrolet engine that is fed through a throttle body fuel injection. The truck retains its original SM420 4 speed manual transmission. The headlights, brake lights and turn signals work and is said to be road worthy. The seller installed new brakes, battery, tires, exhaust and fuel delivery system so, mechanically, the truck is solid. The rear end houses 3.73 rear gears and the 4WD differential works fine. Of note, the brakes are said to stick, there is a leak in the front differential and the distributor needs work.

With the seat recovered, the interior looks great. The truck was originally a farm truck in Tennessee before being purchased by the seller and shipped to California. The body has rust in the fenders and roof. Everything is covered in surface rust but from what I can tell, the frame is not rotted. The truck was originally built in St. Louis and featured back in 2016 on Barn Finds sitting in a field. You can see that article here on the Barn Finds website.

The body is original except for the driver door which looks cool to me. The VIN on the cab matches the frame and clear California title. This is not a conversion but a factory 4×4. Somebody better buy this before I make an offer!

    That rust is something I’d want to remedy. After that was done, a new paint job would be in order. Cool truck, but too involved a project for me.

    If it runs and stops well, I wouldn’t change a thing.

    Not a bad idea, dropping in a TBI Chevy. It would be a good fit. Myself, I’d have hung onto the original engine unless it was no longer worth hanging onto, in which case this would be a good second choice. Down to the frame and a complete restoration. No holds barred. Do it up to the way it was when it was first delivered and then drive it and enjoy it. No surface rust and no through rust. Get rid of it and give the truck what it deserves.

    The orange one is way nicer than the one for sale. Is it yours, geomechs?

      Oh, I wish!!! This truck was at the Barrett Jackson Auction in Scottsdale a few years ago. I was actually considering bidding on it because it was taking forever to even get some competing bids. Then all of a sudden it took off like a house fire and sold for something like $30K before the hammer fell. But it was sure nice. Complete body-off restoration. It was powered by a 292 and a good old reliable granny four-speed manual.

    This was my truck when it was originally featured on Barn finds in 2016. It was a fun truck, & got looks everywhere it went. The 350 tbi engine came from my 87 & was almost a direct bolt in from the original 283. It’s actually a lot more power than the truck needs, but the instant starts & throttle response compared to a carburetor are great.

    I redid the entire brake system from front to back & split the system. Not sure what the sticking issue could be. Probably not too much to straighten out though. Could be as simple as the pedal return spring.

    I hope the new owner has as much fun with it as I did! Contact me if you have any questions.

      Awesome Tyler. Love what you did to make it a runner.
      I wouldn’t change a thing either except that which makes it road worthy, if needed.
      Beautiful truck.
      Good luck to the next owner!
