Description

BIG 10 EDITION #'S MATCH 454CI, FACTORY BUILDSHEET, H/D SUSPENSION, UPGRADED A/C

This 1978 Chevrolet C10 Silverado has its numbers-matching 454 cubic-inch big block and shows all the right signs of bring a true Big 10 package. If that wasn't already attractive enough, this one has everything you want - from dual fuel tanks to cold-blowing A/C.

The Big 10 is a true legend. Just like Dodge's LiL Red Express, Chevy used their pickups to get around emissions regulations. But more than just powerful, this one is great because of a quality presentation. The factory correct two-tone Red Metallic and Mahogany was given a nice respray later in life. Plus, the full trim provides a clear dividing line while also perfectly representing this top-of-the-line Silverado model. And the factory-style premium appearance is capped off by the factory Rally wheels with chrome beauty rings. The odometer is believed to reflect the actual mileage. So this truck has averaged less than 2,200 miles annually. Not all pickups get respected correctly like this one, but the story we're told is that it was in long-term care by the same family for most of its life so far. Being an heirloom doesn't mean skipping out on the chores. The liner paint not only looks good, but also it lets you take full advantage of this long bed model. You've even got a proper trailer hitch and wide large mirrors. And dual fuel tanks let you haul further between fill-ups.

Inside is more of the loaded and vintage Silverado attitude. It's a nice mix of preservation and the correct restoration parts to give a stock but quality look to the dash, carpeting, door panels, and headliner. We especially like the reupholstered seat that still has its classic button-top presentation. The steering wheel is on a tilt column, and the gauge package wraps around you, so it's easy to get comfortable in this Silverado. There's even a rare tach which is quite handy when towing. Plus, you have well-placed upgrades, like the AM/FM/cassette stereo w/aux input and the factory air conditioning is now blowing cold with modern R134a.

Under the hood is numbers matching 454 cubic inch V8. The build tag also shows other HD suspension components that would been needed to raise the GVWR for the Big 10 package. And while the blue on this big block makes it look quite stock, you'll want to dig a little deeper. This mighty motor now inhales deeper with an Edelbrock 800 CFM four-barrel carburetor and a Holley Street Dominator intake. And the newer dual exhaust with Flowmasters lets it exhale with a nice big block sound. It's a powerful motor that runs terrific, and so you'll be happy to have the TH400 three-speed automatic transmission that's both stout and smooth. Plus, the power steering and power brakes with front discs add to a terrific total cruising package.

This sale comes with the right paperwork, including original warranty card, owner's manual, and factory build tag. So you've got the awesome legend of the Big 10 Silverado in an exceptionally well respected example. Don't miss this deal, call today!
