Imagination, determination, and a strong investment can create a 4×4 like this 1984 Chevrolet K30
With the rare quad cab, comfortable A/C interior, overdrive transmission, lifted stance, and a deep blue borrowed from a Corvette, this one-ton truck already has a ton of appeal. But what makes it absolutely awesome is the fully-built turbo diesel that gives this the bravado to live up to its beefy style.
This is a custom classic truck for those who need to look good getting to work, carrying the family, towing the toys, or do all three. The commercial-grade C30 chassis is already a rarity on the market today, but the four-door cab is the kind of truck that’s almost a mythical sighting. So there are a lot of us who are excited about the setup even before looking at all the investments in awesomeness. The front has a custom steel bumper that makes for the perfect place to mount the Warn winch w/synthetic cable. The extra-tall lifted stance is anchored by those 20-inch XD wheels with the HD 8-lug setup. And the rear chrome bumper has a deep step, and beneath it is a proper tow hitch with 8-pin connection and trailer brake. Newer headlights, newer taillights, top running lights, a useful bed w/liner paint, and aluminum side steps for each door make for practical quality details. It’s all finished in a share of dark blue borrowed from the ’79 Corvette. The paint does a great job of conveying the right dark/mean attitude while given the right sophistication of a custom. And the finish is the right balance of a good gloss but never too fancy… after this isn’t a trailer queen; it’s the one that tows the trailer queen.
The 3+3 means the rare double bench seat interior that can seat up to six people. And just like today’s extends cab trucks, there’s adult-sized legroom in the rear. Everyone gets to stay comfortable with newer blue velour upholstery (2013), tinted windows, an AM/FM/CD stereo with Bluetooth , Rockford Fosgate door speakers, and cold-blowing air conditioning. The driver’s seat is a true command position with an upgraded sports steering wheel and a tilt column. The wraparound gauge panel is done in a carbon fiber texture, and it’s home to crisp AutoMeter readouts with some of the most important dials moved to the A-pillar.
Under the hood of this Chevy is Dodge power…or more appropriately Cummins power. It’s a 6.7-liter turbodiesel. It has been rebuilt and enhanced with a Stage 5 pump kit, a custom cam, 5,000 RPM kit, Banks Power air intake down tubes, an aluminum air intake w/four-inch outlet, Garret turbo, and more. It makes for a monster powerhouse that you dial-in with the Banks Power controller. And there was a new four-speed automatic transmission installed earlier this year (a nearly $6k investment all on its own.) It includes a multi-disc converter, billet low stall stator, billet input shaft, and billet flex plate. The NP205 4×4 transfer case is made even stronger by NorthWest FabWorks components. This gives it plenty of off-road prowess, especially combined with the 10-inch lift, Super Swampers M16 tires, King 2.5-inch diameter off-road racing shocks with piggy-back bypass. There’s also a Benchworks power steering pump, four-wheel power disc brakes, and rear airbags when doing big towing – all part of this mean machine’s practical side.
