When you want to look distinctively original, without giving up creature comforts, it's time for this 1985 Chevrolet Silverado. It combines classic truck styling with 4x4 capability, and oh yeah, there's also a screamin' V8 crate motor for tons of fun on or off road.
Bright red paint and plenty of chrome trim perfectly represents this top-of-the-line Silverado model. This truck is nothing but straight crease lines, and horizontal brightwork, so it would be impossible to hide any imperfections in the body. Beautiful chrome bumpers, matching bed rails, wide step rails, and upscale Silverado trim make this look far more substantial than its price tag would suggest. Just one glance in the bed will prove that this truck has had a very easy life. There are no gouges or dents, but the fresh Rhino lining will not make you think twice about a lumber store run. The final piece to this premium pickup puzzle is a set of custom wheels, with capable and expensive Michelin LTX Mud & Snow tires.
Inside is a very original interior with some fun upgrades. It starts with the cloth bench that looks quite stock and pristine, but it now has Chevy's famous "Heartbeat of America" motto stitched into the middle headliner. Carpets, door panels, and the dash pad are all vintage 1985, and are all in great condition. A truck purchased for work usually comes with bare bones equipment, so this Silverado's long list of options points at a more comfortable life. This includes power windows, power locks, cruise control, sliding rear window, and the original AM/FM/cassette stereo in the dash. The factory air conditioning has even been converted to R134a for easy servicing. But this one gives off plenty of hints that this is a true driver's pickup. It starts with the classic Camaro-style three-spoke sports steering wheel. Beyond that is a new easier to read AutoMeter speedometer, and there is even a new SunPro tachometer resting where the clock once was.
Lift the hood, and you might miss the surprise at first glance. But anyone who heard your rumbling dual exhaust certainly picked up on the hint. This Silverado has been given a ZZ4 crate motor from GM Performance. This 350 cubic-inch small-block V8 comes right out of the box with goodies like a forged steel crankshaft, aluminum pistons, steel hydraulic roller camshaft, aluminum intake, Holley four-barrel carburetor, and HEI distributor. All of this makes a seriously sweet 355 hp and 405 lb-ft of torque. Actually as a desirable as this pickup might be for its performance characteristics, it's built more for 4x4 duty. This truck has a two-speed transfer case to choose the right kind of off road work, and you don't even have to leave the pickup to engage the four-wheel drive, thanks to auto locking hubs. This Silverado is also good for the long trips with power steering, power brakes (discs up front), and a 700R4 four-speed automatic overdrive transmission for when you're on the highway.
So, is this the classic sportscar of vintage 4x4s? It's up to you to drive this powerful Silverado and decide. Call today!!
