Excited to join the club! I’m the 4th owner of a doe tan K10 that’s spent it’s entire life in NC.

The second owner cleaned and treated the frame and undercarriage, put in new bushings, body mounts, a BDS lift kit with Bilstein, powder coated the rally wheels, and cleaned up the paint.

The third owner, who I bought it from, did a 5.3 swap with a laundry list of parts and upgrades.

I love that the paint and body are original and it has a lot of honest wear and patina, but is rock solid with no rot.

Looking forward to ownership!
