1989 Chevrolet C/K Pickup 1500 Additional Info:

Hey Chevy Truck Lovers - It’s “Herb’s” 31st Birthday…
Yes, 31 years ago this Chevy C1500 was born – you remember those days - 1989 – it was the year of Batman, Ghost Busters II and Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade to name a few. It was also another year of great 80’s hits: My Prerogative, Straight Up, Armageddon It, Love Shack, and who could forget Fine Young Cannibals “She Drives Me Crazy”! Good times, good times!

Well, here it is 31 years later and who knew the world could get so CRAZY….but you can relive those happy, simple and FREE times once again, cause Herb’s been restored and looking better than ever! Oh sure, when we got him he had some dings and scratches, his shocks were sagging, marred interior, headlights were going dim, clogged lines, and even some missing parts (I’m sure you can relate)…but it’s a new day and Herb has a new lease on life.

So for anyone who is looking to reminisce their days of old, driving with the windows down and the wind through your hair (or lack thereof), he’s ready to enjoy the ride with you!

So you might be asking, “What are we getting here, just another “pretty face with a little nip and tuck?” Oh no…he’s nearly a complete makeover from the inside out…here’s all the details:

Body and Electrical:
Bodywork and paint was just professionally completed by me (31 years as a Professional Auto Body painter). Paint was originally white, with the truck being disassembled and newly painted to a CUSTOM metallic Blue/Gray. The bodywork was done to where the truck is arrow straight - paint is smooth as crystal glass with a deep gloss from being color sanded and buffed and topped off with 3 coats of Premium clear. Looks stunning!

To sum it up, there are a lot new parts on this beauty or many that have been restored. But, as with anything that has aged, there’s always some imperfections when you take a really close look (just ask some of our Hollywood friends)…


· Bed floor has dents, but they are covered with the bed mat
· Bumpers are in good shape, but they are original
· Speedometer is off about 10 mph due to smaller tires

Now as beautiful as this truck has turned out, he is still a 1989 and not everything is “perfect”. When you purchase one of these beauties you can expect some occasional tinkering and maintenance, but it’s still an incredibly nice vehicle.
