This 1988 Chevrolet C1500 Silverado is a loaded pickup that has been given the right investments to be a great mix of new style and plenty of classic details. So when you want a loaded, versatile, and interesting truck that's also affordable, you know this one fits ideally.
<br><br> This was the first year for the new style Chevy C/Ks. It's a design that was so sleek and interesting, that you can still see echoes of it in the brand new Silverados. Then again, people also will never believe the truck is over thirty years old with this level of presentation. The bodywork is straight and clean, which makes for a great canvas for a quality respray. You can tell they made a nice investment later in life refinishing the factory-correct Garnet Red just by the level of gloss and shine from this metallic finish. Plus, the lower silver portion harmonizes nicely with the imbedded shine of the upper color. They really went the extra mile giving these colors the premium look with details like the matching red wheels and a full silver pinstripe. And everything from the bright chrome bumpers to the added window rain guards really tell you this is a well-respected pickup. But as clean as this Silverado is, it still knows how to earn its keep. The liner pant in the bed, locking tool box, and proper trailer hitch are all there for true truck duty.
<br><br> Inside is more of the well-done classic attitude. So you get the classic bench seat but with added contouring and a comfy cloth finish that came on this new generation of Silverado. Carpeting, door panels, and the dash pad all have a stock look in a nice and deep red. Silverados are at the premium end, and so you get nice features like power windows, power locks, a tilt steering column, cruise control, and cold R134A air conditioning. There's even an upgrade to an Alpine AM/FM/CD stereo for upgraded driving music.
<br><br> When you open the hood, the polished air cleaner and valve covers give this a little added flair. But what really excites truck people is the substance of this motor. It's Chevrolet's trusty 5.7-liter small block, and it comes from the time when the factory was installing fuel injection from day one. This has good looking belts, hoses, wires, and newer dual exhaust that gives the V8 a nice low rumble. It drives with the confidence of a well-respected FI machine, and you have easy driving features like power steering and power brakes with front discs. This also has a four-speed automatic transmission w/highway-friendly overdrive to really enjoy this one near or far.
<br><br> Complete with owner's manual, this is a truck that has spent most of its life in Florida and has been given the right investments along the way. So if you want a classic pickup that's vintage, useful, distinct, and affordable, don't miss this Chevy. Call today!!!
