Sometimes the right 4x4 is much more obtainable than you think.
After all, this 1986 Chevrolet Silverado has the great classic
appearance, plenty of mean upgrades to go with the slick black
paint, a ready to work/play attitude, and an enhanced V8... and
it's all for far less than a brand new 4x4.
A professional respray of the factory-correct black, and plenty of chrome trim perfectly represents this top-of-the-line Silverado model. This stellar presentation is the product of the right investments in keeping this truck looking great, and you can see in the details, right down to the unbroken line of the upscale Silverado wraparound trim. But more than just looking amazing, this pickup is still ready to work. The bed sides are protected by diamond plating that match the locking Kobalt toolbox. Plus, you can use the bed without worry thanks to tough liner paint. And of course, we love that the tow hitch reminds you that the truck should not be a garage queen (it can haul them!) There have also been great upgrades to give this Chevy a mean attitude. After all, the custom cowl hood, full-width billet grille, LED light bar, and 20-inch Gear wheels with a simulated bead lock all come together to make an intimidating first impression.
While this pickup looks aggressive on the outside, it strives to be everyday comfortable on the inside. That's why you get a nice black interior with what we suspect is a new bench seat cover. It's a nice presentation that has vinyl for the high wear areas, but comfortable cloth inserts for where you sit. Plus, the factory dual spoke steering wheel gives you a commanding view of everything from the full gauge package to the upgraded AM/FM/CD stereo. And we know you'll love letting the breeze flow through the vent windows and out the sliding rear glass. That's why these Silverados are so popular. They are tough on the outside, but they're long-haul comfortable inside.
Under the hood the mean attitude continues. The 305 cubic-inch V8 looks great with its racing-style valve covers, big red air grabber, and shining intake. Plus, with the Edelbrock four-barrel carburetor and glasspack dual exhaust, this one can inhale and exhale with authority. In fact, you're going to view this as a bit of a hot rod thanks to the rumble of the V8 and the control of the four-speed manual transmission. But more than just a muscle truck, the 4x4 's two-speed transfer case, tall ground clearance, and Firestone Destination M/T tires mean you can still have fun when the pavement ends. Of course, for the days you just want to go to the hardware store, the power steering, and front disc brakes mean this truck can also run around town with ease.
These classic Silverados are hot right now, and a special one like this can go anywhere and do it all. So do you really think something this appealing is going to be around tomorrow? Call today!
