Gateway Classic Cars of Nashville is proud to digitally present
this sweet little sleeper 1987 Chevrolet C10/R1500. 1987 was the
first year that they started with the "R" , powering this wild
truck is built General Motors 4-Bolt main 454CID Big Block V8! If
that doesn't seem like that much engine to you just wait, there's
more. Topping this Big Block is a Weiland 117 Blower with a Holley
850 Double pumper resting on top of that, what a beast! All of this
power plant is tossing that power to the ground via a TCI Turbo400
3-speed automatic transmission, yes its built to handle this power
and pass that along to a "Strange" built 9' rear end. Posi traction
is a must on a truck like this to keep it sticking so that was
added to it. The interior of this wild machine has had some goodies
added. Try a full auto-meter gauge cluster with added tach and a
rachet shifter so you can bang through the gears if wanted to, also
a very comfortable Red/Black bench seat. You will want to bang
gears in this truck making anyone that can see you snap their neck
to see what is making that sweet V8 sound. The exterior of this
truck is a driver quality paint that has been cleared over so the
areas that has paint missing is still cleared and that is the theme
that he went with. This truck has had a few different lives in its
past, born as a 6cylinder/manual truck it was used to pull a little
horse trailer 5th wheel. Yes, I said 5th wheel on a 6cylinder
truck! Then it was turned into a race truck having a turboed LS
under the hood and passenger fender exhaust hole added with a fuel
cell. That brings us to current time, factory fuel tank added back
and the massive, big block was installed, rear end redone, rear
disc brakes added. Shifter assembly added along with gauge cluster.
This truck is a beast! Options on this 1987 Chevrolet C10/R1500
include : Am/FM/CD player, Power Steering, Vinyl bench seat, Seat
Belts, Horsepower and performance Radial tires wrapped around steel
