A 402 cubic inch V8 lies in the very clean engine bay to provide all the power needed to propel this truck forward with authority. Outfitted with a custom air cleaner, and a host of upgraded Edelbrock components that include its intake manifold, carb, fuel pump and water pump, the powerplant is in optimal form, idling very smoothly and producing just the right exhaust note out of its long tube headers. The 3-speed automatic TH350 transmission sitting just behind it shifts with plenty of precision, and with power steering and power front disc brakes, the street manners you’d look for in everyday driving conditions are present and accounted for. Should you yearn to stray from the asphalt into more rugged territory, this K-10’s ample tire clearance combines with easily enlisted 4×4 capability to make for a surefooted off-road performer.
