Description

STRONG 350 FUEL-INJECTED V8, AUTO, PWR STEERING/BRAKES, R134A A/C, SOLID TRUCK!

Are 1980s pickup trucks collectable now? Our recent sales success with pickups just like this 1987 Chevrolet Silverado says they are, and most of them weren't even this nice. With a great color combination, a huge list of options, and utility you can actually use, this is a great way to get V8 power and rear-wheel-drive in an affordable package.

Wearing a repaint in its original bright red, this high-visibility Silverado was obviously not some contractor's work truck. It was built at the dawn of our motoring obsession with giant trucks and was probably one of the early examples of using a full-sized pickup as a daily driver. As a result, it has straight bodywork and probably never did more work than helping a buddy move on a Saturday afternoon. There is no evidence of major bodywork and after spending its life in the dry southern US, it's obviously not a rust bucket. The paint shines up well with that soft gloss that could pass for factory enamel and there are plenty of signs that it has been regularly washed and waxed with care. Shiny chrome bumpers, matching oversized side mirrors, and upscale Silverado trim make this look far more substantial than its price tag would suggest. And just one glance in the bed will prove that this truck has had a very easy life, as there are barely any marks that would indicate it's ever done serious hauling.

The familiar dark red cloth upholstery was a GM favorite in the late-80s, and it looks exceptionally good inside the bright red pickup cab. It's mostly original, so it has held up very well with only light signs of wear on the driver's side of the bench seat. Carpets, door panels, and the dash pad are all vintage 1987 and holding up equally well. The argument that this was a daily driver and not a work truck comes from the long list of options, including power windows and locks, factory A/C, cruise control, a tilt column, and an AM/FM stereo in the dash. The A/C system works like it should, the power window and lock mechanisms snap to attention, and lots of little detail items have been serviced in the not-too-distant past, so it all works properly. Matching carpeted floor mats add a luxurious touch and help keep everything looking sharp.

The engine is a familiar Chevrolet 350 cubic inch V8, which was borrowed from a full-sized Blazer with just 35,000 miles on the clock. Despite the swap it's quite stock under the hood, including the throttle-body fuel injection system which means its starts easily, idles properly, and runs superbly. There's Chevy Orange paint in there that probably isn't how it was originally but it sure looks good, and things like the A/C compressor and drier are recent. It's backed by a 700R4 4-speed automatic overdrive transmission, which combined with dual gas tanks, gives this truck bladder-bursting range on the highway. A fresh Flowmaster dual exhaust system sounds great and the undercarriage is shockingly clean for a pickup of this vintage. Truck Rallys with spinners are fitted with big Cooper radials so it has a butch look and a nice ride.

Not many trucks this old are this well-preserved, and someone has invested pretty heavily in keeping it in good condition. Hobby vehicle, daily driver, or work truck, this is a heck of a lot of Chevy for not a lot of cash. Call today!
