For Sale: 1997 Chevrolet C/K 1500 in Morgantown, Pennsylvania

Vehicle Description

1997 Chevrolet C1500 Pickup

Fleetside (plural fleetsides) A pickup truck having flat bedsides (outside quarter panels). The rear quarter panels are flat and run lengthwise along the wheel-well openings. Excludes both stepside and styleside truck bed styles. A pickup truck is a fleetside because the sides of the box are flat.

For consignment, a well-maintained truck that was always garage kept by the previous owner and regularly washed and polished. Gracing the South Mallway of our Hallowed Halls is the 1997 Chevrolet C1500 2-wheel drive hauler ripe for the picking.

Exterior
Light Sandrift Metallic paint that presents well thanks in part to the diligent care given by a prior owner, floods this C1500 from the great year of 1997. Straight steel with nicely minded gaps abounds throughout and blue to teal fading wave-like decals adorn the doors. A fiberglass visor has been added to the roof and is in body matching Light Sandrift Metallic. No peeling of the paint which is normal for this era truck is seen. With Cheyenne trimmings, meaning some 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. 15-inch factory highly polished wheels are on and wrapped in 235/75R15 blackwall rubber which are almost new.

Interior
A swing of the doors reveals an intricate use of tan molded vinyl, some carpeted area on the bottoms, and many differing panels to make up just the doors. Inside is an overstuffed vinyl and tweed pattern bench seat is seen sprawling from door to door and provides seating for 3. The covered seat is in excellent condition showing little wear. In front is the original factory configured tan 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 the heater/AC dials and the original airbag equipped steering wheel is looking just dandy. Slightly soiled tan carpet is on the floors and remains mostly clean thanks to the care given over the years, and above is a tight felted headliner.

Drivetrain
Under the hood in the original unrestored engine bay, is the original 4.3 Liter V6. It is fed fuel by EFI and has a 4L60E 4-speed automatic transmission on the back. A 10 bolt 3.08 geared axle turns the tires to get your cargo delivered on time.

Undercarriage
Some slight surface rust is noted on the rear axle and suspension, and just a bit on the frame but the bed underside has severe surface rust bordering on the invasive category. However, the truck remains very structurally sound with solid rust-free floor pans and rockers. Independent coil spring suspension in the front works with leaf springs in the rear to give this truck its ride. Power disc brakes are on front, and power drums for the rear are seen. A stock style single exhaust system handles removal of spent fossils efficiently.

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 to the general store or even Lowes, 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 drivability. We did note that the A/C system even blew cold, and all other functions were working as they should.

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. Very little rust, garage kept and faithfully serviced and cleaned, and it certainly will be well accepted as is. Go on, get to hauling!
