This 1987 Chevrolet Silverado 454 SS feels like a cool look into what might have been had GM woken up to modern muscle trucks sooner. This is a seriously cool build with a custom look, sporty A/C interior, and serious big block power under the hood. So it's the package you always wished you could get from Chevy, and for one lucky person, this is a chance to make it a reality.
We love it when this generation of Silverado is done for a performance look. After all, it might have a .....
beefy/boxy stance, but there's also an extra hint of flare in the fenders that's just begging to be amplified. So now this one has smoother lines with a custom integrated front bumpers, billet grille, flush rear roll pan, frenched taillights, and an aerodynamic tonneau cover. Plus, the cowl hood with 454 callout, custom rear fender callout, and Ridler 20-inch wheels make this unmistakably sporty. And the full custom package is dipped in a modern blue that has an electric level of shine. It all makes for a truck that instantly gets noticed even without hearing the roar of the exhaust.
Inside is custom comfort with a sporty feel. This starts with the seats. This has been upgraded to dual high-back buckets with a cup holder and armrest in-between. The black on the carpeting custom door panels, and headliner all match in color and quality. There are more nice details, like how the blue stitching on the sports steering wheel coordinates with the dash accenting and blue interior lighting. And it all goes with the full exterior paint. The side vent windows and sliding rear glass give you the kind of breeze through the cab that only a vintage truck can offer. And any time that's not enough, the air conditioning is blowing cold with modern R134a.
Big block power fits into the engine bay nicely. While a 454 cubic-inch motor would already be a nice upgrade for most of us, this custom truck want to lives up to its Super Sport label. So the big V8 has nice upgrades like a Holley four-barrel carburetor, Edelbrock Performer 2.0 intake, fabricated polished valve covers, and headers feeding the growling dual exhaust. It makes for quite a powerful pickup. The TH400 three-speed transmission is stout enough to handle all the muscle while also delivering easy automatic shifting. This truck also gives you nice driving features like power steering, power brakes w/discs up front, and the grip of modern performance tires.
Complete with owner's manual, Chevy would bring out a 454 SS in the next-gen Silverado, but this one explores what they could/should have done in one powerful package. Don't let this unique deal slip away, call today!
