Silverado 1990

Title Status --
Exterior Color Black
Interior Color Red


This 1990 Chevrolet Silverado 454 SS kicked off an era where the big block from the heavy-duty pickups was put in the lightest half-ton chassis. The result was a muscle truck for a more modern era. But now that this fuel-injected beast has crossed the 30-year threshold, it's a true classic that has become a sought-after item.

These trucks have an awesome blackout style direct from Chevy. The grille, front bumper, sport mirrors, and paint are all part of a well-coordinated intimidation. Chevy gave them just the right hint of red in the badging, and this example also has a matching pinstripe, so it feels like it's out for blood. There are a few well-placed upgrades, like the classic hood ornament. And the polished rockers go well with the stock polished wheels. But overall, this has a very stock style that shows hints of 30+ years of life but with proper care. So it makes for a great modern classic presentation.

It isn't a true first-year SS truck without the Garnet red interior and the premium cloth bucket seats. It still looks amazing today, that's a testament to the quality of a vehicle that has averaged less than 1,500 miles annually. A center armrest console provides extra storage and a set of cup holders, which is a nice feature that doesn't yet come in many classic collectibles. This SS is loaded with power windows, a tilt steering column, cruise control, and the Silverado's classic dual-panel AM/FM/cassette stereo. This has the classic sliding rear glass in case you want to have old-school breezes blowing through this muscle truck. And any time that's not cool enough, there's also cold-blowing air conditioning.

We already hinted plenty of times to the monster 454 cubic-inch fuel-injected big block under the hood. This comes from the grand muscle car tradition of Chevy grabbing the largest motor they had and shoehorning it into the smallest, lightest body for exceptional performance. These engines were initially intended to do work in a dually, pulling things like horse trailers, but this single-cab 1500 short bed is an 800-pound lighter pickup. So you know this one has some serious power to spare. The motor appears completely stock and is a strong runner. You'll be proud to pop the hood at any car show or cruise-in because it has an interesting sinister black appearance that fills every inch of the engine bay. The three-speed TH400 and unique 14-bolt rear end are stout components that help bring reliable performance. This one is also quite capable on the road thanks to a sports car-like ratio on the power steering, BF Goodrich T/As, and power brakes with front discs.

Complete with the owner's manual, this is the low-mileage modern classic muscle machine that also has a bed on the back. So if you're looking for a 454 SS that's well-presented and well-preserved, don't miss this pickup. Call now!
