With children of the 80s and 90s having more buying power than ever these days, 1990s-era 4x4s and pickups like the Chevrolet S-10 are experiencing a bit of a renaissance. And for today’s Autotrader Find, we’ve got an S-10 that’s about as Nineties as they come, despite technically being from the 2000 model year. It’s a modified ZR2 model and it comes with just under 3,000 miles on the odometer; which is positively insane for a nearly 21 year-old vehicle.
The Chevrolet S-10 was sold over two generations spanning the 1982 through 1984 model years. The first-gen S-10 was offered from 1982 to 1993, and wore a boxier design, while the second-generation model – which shared most of its chassis components with its predecessor – came out for 1994. Just like with the midsize Colorado pickup offered today, the Chevrolet S-10 was available in an off-road oriented ‘ZR2’ trim, which came with a 3-in lift, a 4-in wider track, 31-in all-terrain tires, a fortified frame, suspension system, and wheel and axle bearings, Bilstein shock absorbers, fender flares, unique wheels, and 3.73:1 gearing with an Eaton MLocker.
This one, which again, has logged fewer miles in its lifetime than the distance between Boston and Los Angeles, comes with some additional modifications. It’s got a bull-bar up front, side tube steps, and a roll bar, all of which are chrome. Mounted on the bull bar and atop the roll bar are two pairs of KC Hi-Lighter driving lights with yellow covers; a requirement for any off-road pickup from the 1990s. Under the hood is a 4.3-liter V6 paired with a 4-speed automatic transmission. It’s for sale at a dealer in Wilmington, NC with an asking price of $17,980; ambitious sure, but then again it’s gotta be one of the lowest-mileage Chevrolet S-10s in existence.
