Classic Auto Mall
6180 Morgantown Road
1977 Chevrolet Silverado
I've got some big news
The bank finally came through
And I'm holdin' the keys to a brand new Chevrolet
Have you been outside, it sure is a nice night
How about a little test drive
Down by the lake?
There's a place I know about where the dirt road runs out
And we can try out the four-wheel drive
Come on now what do you say
Girl, I can hardly wait to get a little mud on the tires.
For consignment a hot big short bed with 36 inch Super Swamper tires, a 4-inch suspension lift and a 3-inch body lift. Totally redone in the late 1980's and still retaining its spit shine. We give you a go anywhere, over anything, through whatever obstacle in its way 4 x 4 that can be your new romper room. Giggity giggity.
Look ! up in the sky it's this truck! Original bowtie steel all straight and true and bathed in RM Miracryl Brown which is looking great and retaining its shine. That my friends, is only the half of it as the chrome tubular grille is on and fronted with a chromed push bar mounted to the top of the bumper. And just in case you can't find your way, the 7 KC lights atop the roll bar in the bed, 2 additional KC lights are within this push bar apparatus for extra lighting. Nice white wide bars painted on either side just above the rocker add some bling to the bottom and just above is an airbrushed artwork of a bowtie seemingly tearing through the metal...noice! The cab sports a wide sun visor mounted on the exterior and like new seals are around all the glass. Plenty of small details all add up to make a big impression and one is on the wing windows with an etched bull with wings snorting out lightning bolts. Kewl! A few additional flourishes in pinstripe are adorning various areas of the body. Not one, not two, but 3 chromed tube roll bars are reaching upward through the tan bed covering which is vinyl on top and has a canvas liner underneath. Carpeting is covering the bed. On back the tailgate has the CHEVROLET badge running across the tailgate in the center in orange and a nice flowerish pinstripe on top. A custom fabricated chromed bumper is on back and I must say all chrome on this truck is just in spectacular condition. 36-inch Super Swamper knobbies wrap 15 x 12 Weld Typhoon polished wheels on all 4 corners.
All Aboard! As we swing the doors and begin our climb inside, we pass tan suede like broadcloth in various tiers of panels and a tan carpeted bottom. The original cranks, door actuators and armrest are within this faux suede field and look good and fully functional. Moving across diamond plate kick panels and into the cabin more tan broadcloth mixes with smooth tan vinyl bolsters and forms the bench seat. Climbing in you will be high enough to be just like a referee at a tennis match perched high so you'll miss nothing! The dash is now deep rounded over woodgrain and houses all the original gauges and where these are inserted the wood has been neatly rounded over. An aftermarket tachometer hangs off the column, and an AIWA digital radio with AM/FM/CD capabilities and sound is provided by door mounted speakers. Fronting this great crafty dash is a Grant GT wood rimmed rally steering wheel. A matching wood gear shifter knob is now attached. Tan carpeting floods the floors and rubber mats are protecting it. A nice tight headliner has a sliding air venting rear glass just below on the back looking at the bed.
A good looking 350ci V8 with plenty of orange accenting in wiring, master cylinder, wiper motor covering, and of course the GM block. This beautiful piece of automotive engineering just gleams in the clean engine bay with its polished 4-barrel carb and polished intake manifold and valve coverings. Strapped to the back of this mill is a TH350 automatic transmission with a B&M torque converter and a shift kit. There is a 2-speed transfer case on for extra giggles.
Totally clean black floor pans and framing are accented by chrome for the pumpkin cover, large 3 inch polished exhaust piping, and the 8 polished Rancho shocks with orange covers. Some skid plates and axle trusses protect the axles. On back are leaf springs to aid the shocks, and upfront more leaf springs and 4 more shocks. Orange painted accenting drum brakes are on back and disc brakes are now upfront. Also noted are dual stage steering dampers for the power steering. And, upon closer inspection of the wheel wells they appear to be coated in black with small burst of color dots within. Kinda like the turkey pan one would use in the oven...bulletproof.
After a hike and climb inside I turned the key and it lit with a thunderous roar. Not only does it look good, it also sounds great! It drives like a dream with easy steering, great suspension, snappy acceleration and plenty of climbing power. My partner and crime and I were going to drive
