For Sale: 1998 Chevrolet Tahoe in Ft Worth, Texas

Vehicle Description

This 1998 Chevrolet Tahoe Z71 4x4 is plenty ready to pull double duty as soon as you get it home: super clean, commuter during the week and a very capable all-terrain workhorse on the weekends. It still features its original 5.7L V8 drivetrain, comes loaded with everything offered by Chevy in 1998, looks about as clean as you'll ever find one, and it running as strong today as it did 25 years ago. These first generation Tahoes are the next big thing, with values already skyrocketing up each year. Its incredibly difficult to come across one this clean, making this a very special find indeed.

It's such a sharp looking SUV - just turning 25 years old and becoming an official classic, it has a rugged, vintage look that sets it apart from its later-arriving counterparts, yet retains such a fresh appearance that you'll be more than halfway convinced of its road-readiness even before the first turn of the ignition. The Victory Red is the original shade and it presents very well - even with consistent sheltering from the elements, cars of this vintage rarely look as good as this one. It's not perfect, as it does have over 100K miles on the clock, but it's been very well-kept through the years and the minor imperfections that can be seen could likely be eradicated with a professional buff-and-wax. The distinctive front grille, with its two layers of stacked lights and gold Chevy emblem at the center, sits straight as a ruler over the bumper and, as you take a lap around this Tahoe, you'll see that the years have left it in good stead. Its body lines are precise, with even gaps surrounding the doors and hood - both of which open and close easily. The glass on all four sides is also in impressive shape, and those long, tinted panes in back contribute a lot toward this Tahoe's unique appearance. The bug shield on the hood looks super-cool, matching the front spoiler and bumper guards in terms of aggressiveness, long nerf bars at the flanks look tough, and the roof rack finishes off things perfectly for this Z71.

The gray cloth interior has also come through the years in strong fashion. From the plushly padded surfaces of the bucket seats on back to the spacious cargo area behind the rear bench seat, nothing shows anywhere near the level of wear you'd likely expect after two decades of faithful service. The door panels on each side still sit securely to their steel frames and the matching carpeting lining the floor is unusually clean. In front of the factory-issued steering wheel, the dash area sports an array of clear, functional gauges in its instrument cluster and the dash pad running across the top has yet to develop its first crack. The level of functionality on hand here has to be seen to be fully appreciated - in addition to the factory gauges, every control switch and knob appears to work just as intended and the air conditioning is capable of cooling down the cockpit in short order. Comfort and convenience features include a tilting column, cruise control, power windows and door locks and an aftermarket Pioneer multimedia head unit - not something you see often in an SUV of this vintage - while driver and passenger air bags offer an added measure of safety in the event of a collision.

Everything remains in factory configuration under the hood except for the addition of a cold air intake, and the original, fuel injected 5.7 liter V8 starts up nicely and runs very smoothly. Anyone that takes a closer look is immediately aware that this SUV has been impeccably cared for, and the engine in particular has benefitted from plenty of that attention over the years as it pairs with an also original 4-speed automatic transmission. The four-wheel drive on this Z71 Chevy sits within close reach and is a breeze to activate, making it very easy to prepare for exploits off the asphalt. Power brakes bring this Chevy to prompt stops, while power steering makes it very easy to navigate on its set of modern 20" GMC wheels outfitted with Goodyear Wrangler tires. The clean undercarriage looks solid and well positioned to provide a foundation for many future fun-filled miles.

This 1998 Chevrolet Tahoe Z71 4x4 sports a clean condition that's truly hard to come by in a car of its vintage and its strong running drivetrain and well-appointed interior stand ready to provide a great driving experience for its next lucky owner. Call today!
