This bright white 1997 Chevrolet C1500 Silverado gets the attitude
just right. There's a lowered stance to go with the sporty short
bed and fuel-injected V8 power. Plus, the interior has that comfy
loaded feeling that makes going near or far a breeze.
The look of this generation Silverado is a pure modern classic. And
so it doesn't get any purer than in bright Olympic White. This
looks to be the original application, and its gloss, shine, and
overall condition really signals a well-respected pickup. There's
room for plenty of Americana brightwork in the big chrome bumpers
and shining grille. Everything from the side wind deflectors to the
rubber mat in the bed are handy additions. And this also goes for
an added touch of flair with the red bow tie up front, lowered
suspension, and the competition-style 17-inch torque thrust
The red interior looks good against the exterior white. And as a
modern classic, this is built to provide modern comfort. This
feeling starts with the seats. The comfy velour bench can seat
three across, or fold down the middle for a center console and
bucket-like comfort. You and your passenger even have individual
electronic back support control. There are more great features like
power windows, power locks, tilt steering column, and the factory
AM/FM/cassette with separate CD player. There's also modern safety
with dual front airbags and anti-lock brakes. The sliding rear
glass gives you the great old-school truck breezes you love. And
whenever that's not enough, there's cold-blowing factory air
Under the hood is the correct 5.7-liter fuel-injected Vortec V8.
You can also tell from the engine bay just how clean and well
maintained this pickup has been all its life. The tidy and
untouched appearance reminds you that will be an easy one to love.
It fires up with the readiness you want in a modern FI machine, and
the clean well-respected feeling means it hits the road with
confidence. Power steering, power brakes, front discs, cruise
control, and the four-speed automatic transmission w/highway
friendly overdrive mean this one loves trips of all sizes.
Complete with owner's manual, it's hard not to love a modern
classic that's this clean, loaded, and well-priced. Call
