Clean Short Bed: 1993 Chevrolet S-10 Survivor

I’ve felt for a while that clean, domestic pickups are seriously under-appreciated, especially given in light-duty form. Yes, everyone fawns over survivor dualies and other big 4WDs, but examples like this 1993 Chevrolet S/10 pickup are near impossible to find in condition like this. They were cheap to own and use, and effectively, treated like throwaway vehicles as a result. This 1993 short-bed S1o listed here on eBay at no reserve remains in exceptional condition, and bidding is just over $3,500 with the auction closing Saturday night.

The S10 shows excellent paint around all surfaces, and sports a pleasing maroon paint job – much nicer than the usual shop-truck whites and blues we’re accustomed to seeing. Chrome bumpers still shine nicely, as does the wheel arch trim. The Chevrolet applique on the rear gate still shows deep luster, as do the painted wheels. Factory mud flaps and trim rings are installed.

The S10 is a documented one-owner truck with 47,877 original miles. The seller notes there is no rot on the truck and that the S10 was optioned with the Tahoe package and comes equipped with working A/C, a 4.3L fuel-injected V6, automatic transmission, original cassette deck and floor mats, and even the overview cassette that was inserted into the owner’s booklets. Very few S10s were preserved like this.

The seller is adamant that there are zero mechanical issues at this time and that you can fly in and drive home without any issues. While many of these S10s have been disposed of or junked by this point, this short-bed single-cab model must be one of the nicest ones left. Although I don’t expect it to appreciate dramatically, I do think you’ll see prices climb on survivors like this as time goes on.

    Looks pretty nice but the one picture of the front inner fender rotted out does suggest a need for an inspection. It also looks like someone applied some “undercoating” on top of the rust.
    Despite that, if the truck is sent to a dry desert location to live out its’ days, it would survive better than anywhere else given the rust that has started.
    Nice looking truck with nice options.
