1990 Chevrolet 454 SS Additional Info:

The muscle car era wasn't over in the 1990s, it just moved on to the trucks. This 1990 Chevrolet C1500 454 SS combines the big block from the heavy-duty pickups and the lightest half-ton chassis to create the first muscle truck of the modern era.This 454 SS is one of those rare beasts that hasn't been overworked or raced daily. It would have been tough for previous owners to resist having fun with a big block pickup, but this one shows plenty of signs that it has been under mature care for the last quarter-century. This includes details such as the well-preserved lower valence, the menacing blacked-out grille remains complete, and color-matched rear bumper appears to have never seen a parking lot scuff. We bet you've noticed that this one has been upgraded to a more aggressive cowl induction-style hood, which just feels right to have an icon from the muscle car era on this muscle truck. All this factory-correct Onyx paint makes a nice canvas for the factory chrome wheels (w/upgraded spinner center caps) and bold red bow tie emblems placed throughout pickup.It isn't a true first-year SS truck without the Garnet red interior and the premium cloth bucket seats. It's quite flashy and still looks amazing today, especially when viewing it in combination with the vivid black exterior paint. 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 collectables. This SS is loaded with power windows, tilt steering column, cruise control, sliding rear window, and provisions for air conditioning. The stereo has been upgraded to an AM/FM/CD unit for the best in modern music, but purists will be happy to know the original dual panel cassette stereo also comes with the sale.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 then were installed in an 800 pound lighter pickup...so you know this one has some serious power to spare. The numbers-matching engine is 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 helps bring reliable performance. This one is also quite capable on the road thanks to a sports car-like ratio on the power steering, and anti-lock brakes with discs up front. The muscle car/truck package is complete with Michelin LTX tires at all four corners.Complete with the window sticker and full owner's manual packet, this is a big block machine with all the right paperwork to continue it maturity into classic status. That's why you know you have to strike now while this rare beast is still exceptionally affordable. Call now!!
