1986 Chevrolet C10 Silverado 5.0 (305) V8 from North America
An awesome truck
Valve cover gaskets needed to be replaced when purchased.
Choke thermostat went out a few months after purchase.
Distributor cap and rotor went out a few months after replacing the choke thermostat.
The distributor failed a few months ago, and was replaced with a distributor with vacuum advance, so none of that electronic stuff, which made this truck way more reliable.
This truck has been a very good vehicle, despite the repairs it needed. I use this truck as an everyday vehicle, and I love it. It is just a two wheel drive, but that doesn't bother me.
It has an 8 foot bed, which is good for hauling things, and even with my tool box in it, I still have plenty of space.
The interior has a few bad spots in the seat, and the door panels have a little sun fade on them, but it still looks good.
The seat is still very comfortable, even with the normal wear and tear on the driver's side, and I have a seat cover to make it look better.
I really like the rally wheels on this truck; it makes it stand out and look good.
The truck also has the sliding glass rear window, which is good for letting your truck air out, and still being able to lock it up. It also has a cargo lamp, which is good if you need to look for something in the tool box at night.
All in all, this is an awesome truck; I love it, and I wouldn't trade it for the world.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes

I want a nice first truck. I want a truck with good style, decent gas mileage (I know that trucks aren't usually good with gas) and more than two seats. I've been looking and looking and it's hard with very little money. I'm asking for a recommendation for a truck. I like c10's and would like some advice.
