For Sale: 1997 Chevrolet Silverado in Morgantown, Pennsylvania

Vehicle Description

1997 Chevrolet Silverado 4x4

The origin of the word Silverado is confusing and varied with each page you do research from. It has several meanings, however for this description we will just say it is a truck made by Chevrolet and is wildly popular.

For consignment a 2-owner truck with which the consigner states has had a copious amount of recent service since his purchase including brake work, fuel system work, new tires and fluid changes since his purchase 2.5-3 years ago. We have a future collectable here, a 4x4, short bed, well maintained, rust free Silverado ripe for the picking.

Exterior
Deep black paint with some signs of repainting and ghosting from removed decals flood this Silverado from the great year of 1997. Straight steel with nicely minded gaps abounds throughout. No peeling of the paint which is normal for this era truck is seen. With Silverado trimmings, meaning plenty of stainless steel accents, chrome grille and bumper, wheel well surrounds and black window trimmings and a slightly used but not abused bed we have a classic worker bee ready to take on another 100K miles of faithful service or even be taken to the next level for the show circuit. 16-inch factory aluminum wheels wrapped in outlined white letter Cooper Adventurer AT rubber which are almost new.

Interior
A swing of the doors reveals an intricate use of gray molded vinyl, gray velour inserts, some carpeted area on the bottoms, and many differing panels to make up just the doors. Inside is an overstuffed broadcloth pattern pair of bucket seats and center fold down armrest/3rd seat position in 40/20/40 format. These covered seats are in excellent condition showing little wear. In front is the original factory configured gray molded vinyl dash with a black instrument cluster using the square and rectangle design that was still popular during the 1990's. The factory AM/FM/Cassette player is still in its mount and just below is an option CD player. 4x4 activation is controlled by push buttons on the dash and the original airbag equipped steering wheel is looking just dandy. Slightly soiled gray carpet is on the floors and remains mostly clean thanks in part to the gray rubber mats, and above is a tight felted headliner.

Drivetrain
Under the hood in the original unrestored engine bay, is the original 350ci V8. It is fed fuel by EFI and has a 4L60E 4-speed automatic transmission on the back. 3.42 geared axles with positraction and fresh fluid turn the tires to get you out of even the deepest quagmires you may encounter on your adventures.

Undercarriage
Some slight surface rust is noted on the rear axle and suspension, and just a bit on the frame and bed underside, but the truck remains very structurally sound. Still with black floor pans and rockers, and an extra-large fuel tank has been optioned on and we see new fuel lines and hoses along with a consignor stated new Delphi fuel pump and gauge sender. Power disc brakes are on front, and power drums for the rear are seen with new brake lines, front brake pads and calipers. A stock style single exhaust system handles removal of spent fossils efficiently and we note that a Hayden transmission cooler that has been added.

Drive-Ability
She fired right up and was ready for anything the wilds of Morgantown, PA could dish out. Although our test drive did not take us off road or even through a single mud hole, we just logged a few ticks around the track, and she was proven to work well. Nice smooth acceleration and shifting, bias free panic stopping, and easy driveability. We did note that the A/C system was not blowing cold during our drive but all else was functional.

Whether it be your main mode of transportation, a second truck for a farm or ranch or cabin location, or a future collectible to enjoy, you are sure to have years of reliable service left in this truck. No rust, tons of recent services completed, and it certainly will be well accepted as is. Go on, get to hauling!
