1995 Chevrolet K1500 Pickup
Celebrating 100 years of Chevy truck history in 2018, the American
auto manufacturer has produced over 85 million trucks in the past
century. With two brand-new Centennial special edition trucks
released to mark the occasion, let's take a look at some old Chevy
pickup trucks to see how they have progressed over the years.
Co-founded by race car driver Louis Chevrolet and GM founder
William C. Durant in 1911, Chevrolet had its fair share of rocky
beginnings. While Louis Chevrolet left the company in 1913,
Chevrolet became part of General Motors in 1918, the same year
Chevy's first truck was released.
For consignment, a 4th generation Chevy and is in Fleetside form
with an aftermarket Leer body matching cap for the bed. The
extended cab offers up an additional bench seat in back with comfy
seating positions for 3 adults. 4 wheel drive gives it snow and off
road capabilities and is a K version.
Bathed in Victory Red, all steel panels are looking fine up high,
however, down low is a different story. The rocker panels are
covered up with red duct tape that is hiding the rockers or lack
thereof. Invasive rust has claimed them. Upfront halogen headlights
with a chromed bumper option below are on a standard gray painted
grille. The grille has a slight dulling to it and has faded just a
bit over the years. The crew cab option has 2 additional side
windows for the back seat passengers to have a seat with a view.
Way back is a shortened bed covered with a Leer aftermarket body
matching Victory Red. Within this cap are tinted windows and it
gets taller as we move towards the tailgate. Speaking of which, is
sporting some airbrushed vinyl wrap artwork of the American flag
and a sunset sky and is removable. There is a painted black step-up
bumper below and a heavy duty tow package just below the rear
bumper complete with a 7 lead harness. To aid with a big pull,
exterior chromed large camper style side view mirrors are attached.
Rally style wheels are wrapped by good deep tread off road rubber.
God bless "Merica!"
We can climb aboard and land our butts into a nice checked tweed
light and dark tan broadcloth bench that is a 70/30 configuration
with the drivers back and seat being the 70 percent. These seat
backs fold down for easy accessibility to the rear bench in the
same broadcloth coverings. A standard and original black dash front
has all analog gauges, A/C and heat controls and a digital factory
radio/cassette player. The remainder of the dash is in molded tan
plastic and vinyl and is crack and fade free. A fuzzy padded
headliner is above and looking good, and the floors are covered in
rubber with a small repeating diamond embossed pattern. A sliding
window is seen on the back of the cab and you can keep an eye on
whatever cargo you may be carrying. The short bed is painted red
like the exterior and there is a heavy-duty rubber mat in the
center between the wheel well covers in the bed.
Within the unrestored engine bay is an original 5.7 liter V8. This
engine is fuel injected and has a 5-speed manual transmission on
back. Having a manual transmission as well as overdrive makes it
very versatile for hauling or trailering. The rear wheels are
driven by a 14-bolt 3.42 gear ratio rear axle. Some light rust and
corrosion are noted throughout this engine and bay. Also noted is a
floor shifted 4x4 transfer case for ease of switching back and
forth from 2 wheel to 4 wheel drive.
Some surface and bit of invasive rust is noted on this
undercarriage. Close inspection reveals the spare tire wheel is
heavily rusted due to it residing under the truck. Some heavier
surface rust is noted in the frame and rear suspension of this
truck. The fuel tank looks like it is newer. Body hangers are
solid, and the front part of the frame has lighter surface rust
involvement. Torsion Bar suspension is on front and leaf springs
are on back. Power disc brakes are reserved for the front, and
power drums for the rear. It is difficult to view the inside of the
rockers, however we are somewhat suspect with the red duct tape on
the exterior and did not attempt to pull it off.
A quick starter, and good driver and runner. Has plenty of power
and comfy interior. The 4-wheel drive was fully operational and
it's nice as it is not too high to get in and out. The Leer bed cap
is a real plus as it keeps things out of the weather.
A good example of a 1995 Fleetside 1500 K version of an extended
cab, capped rear bed, 4x4 pickup, manual transmission, and a HD
towing package. Go anywhere, pull anything, and plenty of room for
all the gear while doing so.
