Vehicle Description

1990 Chevrolet SS454 Pickup - 9k Miles - Window Sticker - Bone Stock!
The original Muscle Truck! Ultra Clean, Available Now!
LaFontaine Classic Cars is pleased to offer this beautiful 1990 Chevy SS454 Pickup in excellent condition. This is the original true ""Muscle Truck"" designed by the team at Chevrolet who saw a market for a big block engine in a light weight truck. Of course there was a market for this!
Ok, so the 454 SS was still a full-size truck, but it was the lightest iteration of that model offering a power to weight ratio that proved to be incredibly fun to drive. This half-ton chassis was only offered in two-wheel drive, with the short-box and single-cab configuration. Curb weight is just under 4500 lbs. Now enter the drivetrain...
The 454 big block engines used were the same found on the heavy-duty pickup assembly line. Chevrolet rated these at 230 hp with 385 ft lbs of torque. With that kind of torque on tap, it is difficult for some to keep control of their right foot as temptation to do smokey burnouts is high! Sending the power rearward is the heavy duty TH400, 3-speed automatic transmission feeding the massive and strong 14-bolt rear axle spinning 3.73 gears and posi-traction differential. This is the same rear axle used in � ton and 1-ton pickups but converted from 8 lug to 5 lug for use only in the SS454.
Surprisingly, this combination wasn't just good for straight line acceleration - it proved to be more than capable in the handling department as well. Standard equipment on the SS454 included Bilstein shocks front and rear, larger diameter front sway bar, quick ratio steering, and huge BFGoodrich 275/60/15 Radial T/A tires on all 4 corners.
Cosmetically, the ""SS"" truck had a few unique items that set it apart from other, similar � ton pickups. The front bumper has integrated fog lights to give it an ""angrier"" look, while the bumpers, mirrors, and grille were all blacked out for a sinister, Darth Vader-ish look. And who can forget the iconic ""SS454"" graphics down each side of the truck bed displaying exactly what was going on under the hood?
This truck has been well cared for since day one as you can see in the photos. It is not only a great performing truck, but it is also very comfortable with its plush interior and carpet, plus standard options including power steering, power brakes, cruise control, A/C, power windows and locks.
Because Chevrolet kept production numbers low, these trucks are getting harder and harder to find in this condition. Take advantage of this opportunity to own a rare piece of Chevrolet Muscle history! Call our team at LaFontaine Classic Cars today at 248-714-2110 or email us at [email protected]
