This truck is straight, and hasn't been off roaded, abused, or worked hard. If this is the one for you, don't drag your feet. It has nice sounding FlowMaster duals on it. This was done to allow for concurrent production of its replacement early in 1987 of the all-new C and K models. That's just how Indian and a lot of other states do Lien titles. So to me and many others this truck is a bargan if it has no rust.
They were shuffled for 1975, with the Scottsdale moniker replacing the Cheyenne Super as the top-of-the-line package, while the Custom series was deleted. Even the bed floor and upper bed rails are very straight. I can't document the miles, but she is clean. The next year, Chevy was back up to four trim lines with the addition of the Silverado at the top of the series. These trucks are for real men and they can haul alot of weight. The rear-wheel drive C-series became the R-series, then the four-wheel drive K-series were renamed the V-series. These trucks were and are all over the place.
As you can see from the pics it hasn't had any type of an accident. So bash n trash all you want but the 4wd bigblock square bodys were stronger then the cheap expensive rot boxes of today with less problems to boot computers ,body control modules etc. It has a nice sounding radio. One word of caution, they ride like lumber wagons. The seller says it remains highly original, including the paint. The truck is massive, with an interior and bed capable of swallowing all of your friends and their gear. Chevrolet offered this cab with only a single front bench seat beginning in 1976.
It is a fully loaded Silverado model. I have people calling weekly for crew cabs. . The body is straight, and it has nice looking smooth shiny paint, but isn't perfect. The 4wd never broke down like the new ones do, no electric parts. Milage is nothing to these trucks as it has proven its test of time. This one is rustfree from California, and only has 80k miles on the odometer.
The 1987 model year - the final year of production - saw the series designators changed. Bringing a family of six to home games and practices in a rig like this makes having multiple children more appealing. By and large, this remained the trim hierarchy for the remainder of series production. These trucks really need a lift to make them look right. The interior remains in fantastic condition with no obvious flaws to report.
The Chevy will likely look like a good investment in a few years if the appeal of vintage trucks continues to rise, especially ones that are as well equipped as this one. It proved to be a preview for 1981 and the rest of the production run, with an all new simplified front clip, new hood, and single plane grille. Can drag that trailer full of classics to the shop, entertain prominent guests with the 4 door, classic as it gets, and a nice truck to boot. We just installed a new headliner. All the new trucks rust in 5 years northern areas never seen an 80s truck bumper rot off the truck but my 05 did! I had to get a mechanics lien title for this truck because the owner couldn't find the title. Trim lines were also revamped, ranging from the entry-level Custom to the Custom Deluxe, Cheyenne and top-end Cheyenne Super.
The headliner is missing, presumably for the next owner to replace. Powertrains generally continued as before, except that the 454 cubic inch big block replaced the previous 402. The seller notes an uncracked dash, reupholstered front bench, door panels in nice shape, and original radio. . . . .
