1978 Chevrolet Other Pickups Silverado 4x4 Additional Info:

This 1978 Chevrolet Silverado K10 has been thoroughly and thoughtfully upgraded so you can enjoy it for both work and play. So look over all the details, including the fuel-injected V8 power, overdrive transmission, two-tone paint, lifted 4x4 stance, comfy A/C interior, and more.

This truck makes a great first impression. The purple and pewter two-tone is a custom color combo, but it utilizes the Silverado's factory trim as a dividing line. So it strikes a nice balance of vintage and upgraded. The cowl hood and modern headlights give this a sporty look. There's extra shine coming from upgrades like the polished 15-inch wheels, side steps, and rear step bumper. Even the exhaust tips have a bright surround that draws attention to the custom cut-outs in the rear fender. But there's also a ton of function within this style. This has the usefulness of a lifted 4x4 stance, a Class II trailer hitch, and the bed has both a thick rubber mat and rugged liner paint protecting it.

The interior continues this truck's theme of well-done upgrades. The seating is borrowed from a Suburban of the same era. That means the bench is swapped for high-back buckets that not only give you folding armrests, but also a cup holder center console in-between. This one also gives you power windows, power locks, an alarm, cold R134a air condition (blower may need servicing,) and the stereo has been upgraded to a modern AM/FM/CD unit with a USB input to plug in your phone. We like this generation of Chevy trucks because the dash wraps around you like a sports car. And that feeling only gets better with a leather-wrapped Lecarra sports steering wheel on a tilt column. Plus, the large Equus tachometer is an indication you'll like what's under the hood, too.

The engine bay has the unmistakable look of upgraded power. You now have a fuel-injected Chevy 5.7-liter LT1 motor. Not only did this make cars like the C4 Corvette the hero of its era, but also this V8 has been enhanced further with aluminum heads and an upgraded air intake. And the Hedman long tube headers both add power and contribute to the rumble of the dual exhaust. There are also nice supporting components, like an Optima battery and a large aluminum radiator w/dual electric fans. This fires up readily like a proper FI machine should, and the transmission was upgraded to a 700R4 four-speed automatic unit. So you have stout setup that also has overdrive comfort. Plus, there's power steering and power front disc brakes. And the fun doesn't end when the pavement ends. You have a two-speed 4x4 transfer case, three-inch suspension lift, and General Grabber AT2 tires that are all great for off-road work.

This is the 4x4 with the beefy Chevy lines you love, and all the upgrades you want. That makes for a total package you need to get your hands on right now. Call today!!!
