Not an S-10, because it's full-size. C-10 or K-10 maybe.

This was the last vehicle to ever roll off the assembly line at the GM truck plant in Flint, Michigan. Michael Moore and his crew were able to record this historic moment by posing as a TV news crew from Toledo.

BTW based on the timeline of when everything was shot, along with the fact this factory was shutting down, I suspect this is likely an '87 model.

10 bolt rear axle, "you can tell by the thin axle tubes" and highway radial tires indicate its probably a 2wd. 1987 Chevrolet Silverado C-10, comments?

I can take this as a C-10. The trim doesn't exactly scream "Custom Deluxe."

With the full trim package on the body and tail lights, silverado was the first trim level I thought of. Ddey: Are you in Florida? if so what city?

Spring Hill, like many Long Island refugees.

These special trucks were of course the last of their kind. They were not called C/K-Series for the 1987 model year. They were briefly known
as the R/V-Series for that one model year. When the all-new trucks debuted for the 1988 model year, the lettering changed back to C/K-Series.

That would make sense. Just after this one rolls off the assembly line, the plant manager (or spokesman, whoever he is) refers to the plant closing, then corrects himself by saying "This isn't a plant closing...it's the end of a product line."

The 73-87 trucks are argued to be the best pickup trucks ever offered from GM. It is said that GM has never
really produced a truck quite as successful as the 73-87 rounded-line generation.

Fit and Finish quality for these trucks was unusually good. Interior materials included chrome trim, brushed
aluminium trim (which has become popular in today’s cars) Soft-touch materials used for the dash and on doors,
upper carpeted padding on doors and full floor carpeting ...

... these trucks were produced before GM started to use mass amounts of cheap hard plastic for interiors.

These trucks also featured full power options (i.e. power windows, door locks, etc.) and even a hidden radio antenna
(imbedded into the windshield) instead of a crud fixed mast antenna.

I agree. These are some of the most beautiful trucks ever made. They looked a lot better than the Fords of the same era, in my honest opinion.

By the way, do you mind checking this truck out:

Thanks.

You're correct Neptune, I forgot all about the C/K R/V conversion.
