Stunning looks. I absolutely love the colors, stance, wheels...the whole package! Frame off restored. Not a trailer queen, it's a show and go truck.

EXTERIOR: Absolutely gorgeous truck. The body has some custom work. The hood is a reverse tilt from back to front, it has been louvered too. It has a metal visor. In back the custom tailgate swings to the right, bumper was replaced with a roll pan and a recessed license plate. No taillights? It has a custom light strip below the tailgate. The emblems were removed and filled for a clean look. I don't see any rust or damage but the bodywork is driver quality, not laser straight but presents well. The paint is very glossy and striking but also not pristine. There are some spots buffed to thin and some orange peel in places. The body and paint work is amateurish but presents itself really well to onlookers. In front the chrome is all new- grill, headlight bezels, turn signal lenses and bumper. New door handles. All new smoked glass and gaskets. New 18 inch American Racing chrome wheels with Firehawk performance tires, wider in back.

INTERIOR: Talk about eye popping, that red is awesome. It smells like a leather store inside. The seats, console, dash pad and door panels are wrapped in soft leather. Comfortable sport seats, custom made door panels and headliner. Custom console has a ratchet shifter and touch screen stereo. Beautiful leather wrapped, cushion grip steering wheel on a tilt column. New original style instrument panel and gauges. The inside of the cab was lined with sound deadener. The metal was painted red. Power windows work properly.

ENGINE COMPARTMENT: Very desirable upgraded LS-1, all aluminum 5.7 motor. The front of the engine is full of polished aluminum parts including the water pump, alternator, a/c compressor, billet pulleys and the modern power steering system. It has a remote polished reservoir. On top of the motor is a Fi Tech electronic fuel injection system. Stainless steel headers let the exhaust out. An aluminum radiator with dual electric fans keeps it running cool. It has a nice smooth firewall. The engine bay is body color. It does not have heat and a/c other then the compressor. Vintage Air makes a complete unit for this truck.

TRUNK COMPARTMENT: Inside the bed is painted and has all stainless steel hardware. The wooden slats on the floor are stained a reddish color with very glossy clearcoat. It has a pop up gas cap on the floor.

UNDERSIDE: The body was off the frame. The entire chassis was painted the color of the truck. Suspension was lowered with drop spindles in front and relocated shackles in back. It has an upgraded subframe attached with independent suspension. It was rebuilt- tie rods, ball joints, bushings, sway bar etc. The bottom of the motor is clean, has aluminum oil pan and high torque starter. It also has the 4L60E overdrive automatic electronic transmission. It has an external cooler with electric fan. In back it has 10 bolt rear end and new shocks. Upgraded with disc brakes in front, the power booster is located under the truck. The battery is under the truck and it has a plug in for the battery tender. The fat dual exhaust system has Flowmaster mufflers. Custom stainless steel fuel tank has upgraded electric fuel pump and new fuel lines.

In summary this truck looks amazing, it has very desirable driveline and was frame off restored. It isn't a trailer queen, it's a driver that will turn heads and get compliments!

I, Jay Grams, take pride in personally writing the descriptions for virtually every car for about the last 30 years now. A significant amount of effort goes into fact checking. What I am offering is my professional impression of the vehicle.

Our salesmen are happy to assist with descriptions and making sure your questions are answered. One great suggestion is letting us do a walk around video that explains the car's condition in detail. Don't be intimidated, contact sales now for a no pressure, no hassle experience!
