1987 Chevrolet S-10
383 STROKER, TH400, RATCHET SHIFTER, FUEL CELL, STREET/STRIP!
The Chevrolet S-10 is one of many iconic American trucks. A popular choice for casual handymen and custom minitruckers alike, the S-10 was a lot of usefulness crammed into one manageable package! Originally introduced in 1981, the S-10 lasted until 2004 across two generations with just one major redesign. Given their size and low cost, the trucks made for a wide variety of other uses from spacious daily drivers as well as drag vehicles.
This 1987 S-10 is from right in the middle of the first generation S-10, and has that classic square look everyone loves. The exterior has been kept largely true to original form, but has received tasteful modifications to give it an appropriate look for drag racing. A cowl induction hood looks right at home up front, and the integrated front bumper gives the whole vehicle a slick look! A quality tonneau cover is the perfect finishing touch to keep this truck looking refined, while also hiding the fuel cell and relocated battery for a cleaner look. “Euro” style taillights give this S-10 a bit of a minitruck feel, while reminding those around that this truck is far from stock. Overall, while this is a mild custom build, the cosmetics have been kept subtle to allow the driver to surprise the unsuspecting.
The interior is almost entirely stock, with the exception of a few minor changes as well as an aftermarket steering wheel and more notably the B&M Pro-Stick ratchet shifter installed in the floor. This is a fun vehicle to drive, and the original interior makes it more of a street/strip vehicle. A dash-mounted Equus tachometer and aftermarket oil/temp/voltage gauges ensure that you'll always know what's going on under the hood!
While the original engine options for these S-10s were reliable but underwhelming, as part of the transition to a street/strip truck a Chevrolet 383 stroker has been installed under the hood. Coupled with a TH400 automatic transmission, leaving black lines on the asphalt is a simple task! This 383 has been built to produce more than enough power, and nothing gets up and goes like a high-horsepower pickup!
If you're looking for a fun weekend vehicle to take down to the drag strip from time to time, finding a more affordable option is going to be tough. Get your summer racer soon!
