This 1988 Chevrolet C1500 Silverado is a classic pickup that shows a well-respected style and some nice subtle upgrades. It's all about discovering a classic pickup that's also all-around useful with its fuel-injected V8, overdrive transmission, and comfy interior.
We really are fully appreciating the style and substance of this generation C/K pickup. The design was far more rounded than the square bodies it replaces, but they still looked just as rugged. In fact, this example has .....
clean panels and what's believed to be the original Torch Red paint. It's not a perfect presentation, but as you can see from the pics, it certainly will earn instant respect from the truck crowd. There are a few updates you'll spot on this Chevy. Some make it look sporty with the 454 SS-style polished wheels Others make it more useful, like the side window deflectors, full bed liner, and diamond plate locking toolbox. It makes for a nicer truck without taking away from the classic feel.
We like the look of the deep red interior against the bright red exterior. It makes for a true red-blooded American pickup. And the presentation inside is highly stock and as well respected as the exterior. So the comfy upholstery, soft carpeting, and smooth dash make this inviting. You also have the best features like power windows, power locks, a tilt steering column, the factory AM/FM/cassette stereo, and provisions for air conditioning (it will need servicing to blow cold again.) Any upgrades are subtle, like a slight tint to the windows or a cup holder console resting on the floor. It's all just about keeping this classic a useful and comfortable cruiser.
Under the hood is a remarkably tidy 5.7-liter V8. There are newer fundamentals like the hoses, belts, and battery, and it all has an exceptional level of stock style, right down to the decals. But what you'll love best is how this fuel-injected motor fires up with such eagerness. And the way it feels solid out on the road lets you know this is one for driving. That's why you also have convenient features like power steering, power brakes, front discs, cruise control, and a four-speed automatic transmission with highway-friendly overdrive.
Complete with owner's manual, this is vintage, useful, respected, loaded, and powerful. It's the single cab, short bed Silverado you hoped was out there. So grab it first, call today!
