It is, however, one pricey ride, as it has an asking price of $129,995, meaning it costs almost the same as a brand new TRX and a 2021 Corvette combined.

While the truck rolled out of the factory in 1969, it recently underwent a three-year restoration and has been driven less than 100 miles since. It is lifted and has a powerful new engine that distinguishes it from most other K10s out there.

The engine in question is a 350 cubic-inch small block that has aluminum heads, a 10:1 compression, four-barrel carburetor, and Kooks headers. It delivers in excess of 450 hp and is mated to a three-speed automatic transmission. The truck also features a Dana 44 rear axle, a two-speed 4×4 transfer case, Fox dual reservoir shocks, and BF Goodrich All-Terrain T/A tires that provide excellent grip on tricky surfaces. Prospective customers will be pleased to know it also has power steering, a Wilwood master cylinder and front disc brakes, as the listing at Streetside Classics reveals.

The exterior of the truck is finished in Hugger Orange with white accents and sits on black 20-inch wheels. The cabin has also been restored with houndstooth fabric seat inserts and a matching headliner. The truck has also been equipped with a modern audio system with Bluetooth and a fully-functional air conditioning system.
