A groundbreaking design surrounded by the right upgrades - that's what you get with this 1988 Chevrolet Silverado. So you get a stepside pickup loaded with the best stuff, including A/C and a fuel-injected V8.

This was the first year for the new style Chevy C/Ks. It's a design that was so sleek and interesting, that you can still see echoes of it in the brand new Silverados. And we love the look of a single cab with a short bed in the first-ever Sportside sleek configuration. This gives you something similar to the classic stepside bed but with a sleeker appearance. It all makes this a great way to represent a true icon. This one has been updated with dual exhaust tips and some newer black paint (with some metal flake for the truck bed.) Plus the wheels, grille, and tailgate design channel the later Silverado SS. It has the cool look that also never takes itself too seriously. That's good for a truck that likes to get to work. The bed even has a proper liner protecting it. So it makes for a solid driver that also helps with the weekend chores. And those looking to relive the 1988-style heyday can also use the value price to reinvest in restoring pieces to stock.

The dark gray interior looks stylish against the black exterior. This is well-done with a comfy cloth seat, rugger rubber floor mat, and even the courtesy lights still greet you when the doors open. This is a loaded Silverado with power windows, power locks, a tilt steering column, sliding rear glass, and cold-blowing factory air conditioning. There are also later updates like the tinted windows and an AM/FM/CD stereo. It all makes for a solid cruising attitude.

Under the hood is a fresher crate V8. So while the 150k miles on the odometer is low for the age, the full package has seen even less use with its younger heart. And because it's a correct-style 5.7-liter motor with fuel injection, it upholds the hardy tradition set by this new generation of Silverado. So you'll love the way this classic continues to fire up eagerly and run strong. This generation of modern classic also means desirable long-haul features like cruiser control and the rebuilt four-speed automatic transmission with highway-ready overdrive. Add in power steering, power brakes, and front discs, and this remains a great anytime pickup.

Complete with owner's manual, this truck gets us excited for what it represented when new and how that admiration has only grown over the decades. So if you love a landmark classic truck that still gets the job done, call today!
