Wow! This truck is nothing short of amazing. Frame off restored, it's not only clean, and crisp everywhere, but, this truck is absolutely ready for a fun road trip.
Built to be a show truck, it's very well appointed, and has some show accessories such as engine lighting, and image lighting projected on the ground when the doors are opened, but show stopper aside, this truck actually drives very nice, comfortable, and easy.
The TPI 350 has been completely rebuilt, as well as the transmission, and since the truck was finished about a year and a half ago, it's traveled some 3,300 miles. Perfect! All shaken out, and ready for anything!
The paint shines very deeply, and the dual racing stripes over the hood is a nice touch. The Chevrolet Silverado “Big 10” means this is a heavy duty ½ ton, capable of a payload higher than most ½ tons.
What you have here, is really a multi-purpose vehicle. You can take it to a car show or a cruise-in, pick up a work load at one of the big box stores, or take it on a long road trip as it is very comfortable and has most every convenience you will need.
The wheels and tires fit the truck nicely and are in excellent condition, and the duel exhaust has a nice low rumble without drone.
These “Square-cab” trucks are becoming more and more popular, and due their cab size, and modern driving components, they make an excellent choice for daily driving as well as show trucks, and work trucks as well. Super cool truck!
