1987 Chevrolet Other Pickups Silverado 4x4 Additional Info:

If you grew up at a certain time, you remember trucks like this 1987 Chevrolet Silverado pickup everywhere. What you don't remember is any that were this nice, and someone has spent a ton of time and money on this handsome truck to make it very nice indeed. Nobody's going to miss this bright red pickup running down the road and it's a lot more contemporary-looking than many of its siblings. Finish quality is pretty darned nice and they resisted... the urge to add on all those aftermarket parts that always make these trucks look odd. It doesn't look like this Silverado ever worked for a living, and most short bed/regular cab models were purchased as drivers, which is surely how this one spent most of its life. The chrome and stainless trim is in great shape with the Silverado trim adding the stainless insert on the tailgate, dual chrome mirrors, and shiny stainless steel belt moldings, all of which make this truck look great. Only the grille is not OEM but you probably had to look twice before you noticed. The bed itself is in fantastic condition with a color-matched spray-in bedliner which makes it ready to do some work on weekends. After all, a pickup truck is about the most useful tool you can own, even if it's one that's this much fun to drive. The interior is a combination of original pieces and replacement parts, all of which have an all-of-a-piece look that works quite well. We're guessing that the carpets and seat covers are recent replacements, with the door panels looking like nice original pieces. The materials and patterns are very authentic-looking, so the new work doesn't stand out and it presents simply as a very well-maintained original. The Silverado got all kinds of options, including cold factory A/C, power windows and locks, and a tilt steering column and there's a newer AM/FM/CD stereo in the dash powering modern speakers in the doors. The lever on the floor controls the 2-speed transfer case, so it's easy to switch between two-wheel-drive and four-wheel-drive on the fly, a feature that's so useful you'll wonder how you got by without it. Once you settle in behind the wheel of this pickup, you'll feel right at home after all these years. The engine is a 350 cubic inch crate motor topped by throttle-body fuel injection, so it's reliable and easy to maintain. It was installed about 35,000 miles ago, so there's plenty of life left in it and it does indeed run and drive very, very well. It's not all dressed up and shiny with aftermarket gear, but you'll appreciate the rugged utility of the strong, torquey small block every time you drop it into gear. The transmission is a 700R4 4-speed automatic overdrive, so even though it's a giant pickup on huge tires, fuel economy is at least tolerable and it cruises easily at highway speeds. The exhaust is a custom dual setup with glasspack-style mufflers, so it's definitely got a bark to it and the undercarriage is as tidy as the engine compartment. You'll also note that this is a dual-tank truck, offering bladder-bursting cruising range and it's fitted with 31x10.50-15 Bridgestone off-road radials on the stock Rally wheels. This is a truck that could still be driven every day and not feel like you're giving up any modern comfort and convenience. If you like the look, you're going to love how it drives. Call today!
