For Sale: 1991 Chevrolet C/K 1500 in Conroe, Texas

Vehicle Description

1991 Chevy 454SS Supercharged (30k Miles) - The 454 SS arrived in late 1989 as a 1990 model, smack in the middle of the fourth-generation (GMT400) truck's run. While the big-block engine beneath the hood was a primary selling point, the truck delivered more than just straight-line performance. Inside, all 454 SS pickups were based upon the quasi-luxury Silverado trim level, and came complete with amenities like cruise control, a tilt sport steering wheel, an AM/FM/cassette stereo with graphic equalizer, intermittent wipers, and bolstered sports seats for driver and passenger. Only short-bed, standard-cab C1500s were fitted with the 454 SS package (RPO B4U), and for the first two years on the market, the sole color choice was Onyx Black with a Garnet Red interior. The 454-cu.in. (7.4-liter) fuel-injected engine was not exclusive to the 454 SS model, but instead was the same V-8 available in 3500 and 2500 pickup models. In the sport truck's debut year, the engine produced 230 horsepower and 385 pound-feet of torque, and sent this through a three-speed Turbo Hyda-Matic automatic transmission to a limited-slip differential with a 3.73:1 axle ratio. Maryland Public Television’s MotorWeek tested a 454 SS in late 1989, and found the truck capable of running from 0-60 mph in 7.7 seconds, completing the quarter-mile in 15.9 seconds at 87 mph. Thanks to the addition of a Performance Handling Package, which contained Bilstein shocks, a 1.25-inch front anti-roll bar and 12.7:1 ratio steering, the 454 SS was a capable handler as well, as long as one factored in the truck’s two-and-a-quarter-ton weight and high center of gravity. BFGoodrich supplied 275/60R-15 Comp T/A tires, and in conjunction with rear anti-lock brakes, the 454 SS proved capable of stopping from 60 mph in a very respectable 127 feet, a number also provided by Motor Week. For 1991, Chevrolet made several improvements to the 454 SS, including a bump in output to 255 hp and 405 lb-ft. A new four-speed automatic transmission, the 4L80E, replaced the previous Turbo Hydra-Matic, and the rear gearing was changed to 4.10:1 for even quicker acceleration. As a result, the dash from 0-60 mph now went by in 7.2 seconds, while the quarter-mile time was reduced to 15.7 seconds.

In addition to increased horsepower, the additional 4th gear, and lower production (only 983 produced) of the 1991s, this immaculate 454ss features a dealer installed Whipple Supercharger! These rare trucks have seen a large appreciation over the last few years causing many collectors to bring them out of hiding and listing for sale. We have been fortunate enough to acquire some of the very best examples on the market but never have we had one this unique. Owning this truck will definitely comes with some strong "bragging rights" in the sport truck world and the score for future collectability is as high as they come. Did we mention that it also has under 30k miles?!
