A restored classic 4x4 pickup all in red is a tantalizing idea. And
when you dig deeper to find great features like the bedliner, dual
fuel tanks, and upgraded V8, you'll discover that this looker is
also still ready to get to work, too.
A square-body Silverado with a short bed and beefy 4x4 stance is the perfect tough vintage truck appearance. But more than just a timeless presentation, take some time to really dive into the details. You can enjoy telling people about the red paint of your Silverado, because the professional respray of its factory correct color gives it a great gloss and shine. Plus, the complete premium side trim helps highlight how solid and straight the sheetmetal has remained over the years. This one has the right classic American feeling with the big chrome bumpers on each end and Chevy's iconic Rally wheel package. And while this is a fine truck to show off, it also still earns its keep with features like the spray-in bedliner.
Just like the exterior, the interior gives off a nice feeling of premium originality. The carpets, door panels, and the dash pad all coordinate in color and nice preservation. Finding the right classic Silverado also means getting one that was loaded from the factory with all the right options. It includes the original AM/FM/cassette stereo, tilt wheel, and provisions for factory air conditioning. It's easy to imaging eating away the miles in this one because the red velour driver seat is comfortable year-round, and Chevy's NK4 steering wheel provides the perfect grip. Plus, the dual fuel tanks mean this one is truly built for the long haul.
Under the hood looks like a factory-correct presentation. But the secret to this one is that it was upgraded to a larger 350 cubic-inch V8. It inhales deeply through a four-barrel carburetor, and the headers add even more power as they also contribute to the rumble of the dual exhaust. But more than just prowess, the power upgrade is especially helpful during 4x4 duty. The truck has a two-speed transfer case to choose the right kind of off-road work. And even when you just stay on the pavement, this Silverado is also good for the long trips, too. Besides the dual fuel tanks, there's power steering, power brakes (discs up front), and a 700R4 four-speed automatic transmission with highway-friendly overdrive. Add in Cooper Discoverer HT3 tires, and you're got a great classic pickup for all surfaces.
This one looks stunning in all red, and more importantly, there have also been solid investments in keeping it a useful truck. So you might want to hurry before this total package pickup leaves our showroom. Call now!
