Cool two-tone paint, comfy A/C interior, and a powerful new stroker
motor under the hood - this 1985 Chevrolet Silverado proves you
don't have to pay a lot to get a lot.
The paint makes a great first impression. There was a thoughtful application of this respray. You see this in how the premium trim pieces of the upper-class Silverado were used to separate the white and the red. It looks great even in the details where a red, black, and silver pinstripe runs the profile and wraps around the tailgate to highlight where this upright sheet metal tapers to a gentle curve. Add in bright chrome bumpers, bright trailer mirrors, and iconic Rally wheels, and you have a package that will make people remember this pickup.
Inside, the cool red and white two-tone continues. The premium Silverado attitude is felt by all the right features, including a plush cloth bench, power windows, sliding rear window, and an upgraded AM/FM/CD stereo with subwoofer. The factory air conditioning has even been converted to R134a for painless servicing. So it's easy to imaging eating away the miles from the driver's seat with the original steering wheel and full set of gauges laid out in front of you.
Under the hood is a 383 stroker motor that is believed to be installed as little as 2,000 miles ago. It certainly looks fresh with the bold block paint, dark "Stroker" valve covers, and matching Edelbrock air topper. But the real reason why you love this V8 upgrade is because it inhales deeply through an Edelbrock four-barrel carburetor and Edelbrock intake. Plus, it exhales with authority as headers add power as they contribute to the thunder of the dual exhaust. While big power is always fun, the versatility of this Chevy goes much deeper. It's a power steering pickup with front disc brakes and a four-speed automatic transmission w/overdrive. This means your cool Saturday night cruising pickup can easily be your highway cruiser, too.
This vintage pickup looks cool and has serious power. Still, underneath it all, this wild child is wearing sensible shoes. And the cherry on top is the affordable price. Call now!
