5.0 Liter V8
The boxy bodies of classic pickups like this 1986 Chevrolet Silverado are now an iconic symbol of toughness. While most of these have a no-nonsense appearance, this truck has the right amount of custom touches to be an elegant bruiser.
The first part that strikes you about this full-size pickup is that bold front end. The factory never put this face on Silverados, but a few clever people in the custom car community realized that the rare face Chevy gave to the final years of the K5 Blazer would also fit on these trucks for a very distinctive and cool look. Silverados are known for their bright trim, and this, combined with the mirror-like bumpers, does a particularly nice job of adding distinction to the sinisterly dark paint. That factory-correct Midnight Blue looks particularly glossy because of the right investment in a high quality respray. So now this midnight-themed hue looks like it\'s consuming al the daylight around it. This mean attitude is only heightened by the lowered stance on the large 20-inch BOSS wheels. But as much as this is a street-eating machine, it can still pull real truck duty with the spray-in bed liner sitting beneath the folding bed cover.
The interior retains the luxury image of the Silverado with plenty of features you would want on any modem pickup. This includes power windows, power locks, tilt steering wheel, sliding rear window, and cruise control. Of course, you\'ll really love the cold-blowing air conditioning that\'s running on modern R-134a for easy servicing. Even with all these features, this truck still retains its cool 1986 attitude. This is seen on everything from the original full gauge cluster, to the pattern on the blue vinyl bench seat. Even the factory-correct AM/FM radio is still in place pumping out the tunes.
The 305 cubic-inch V8 under the hood means that this relatively lightweight pickup is lively on the road. And that makes it ready for anything from mild to wild. This motor is legendary for being quite adaptable, but right now it\'s charmingly original. In fact, this mean-looking vintage pickup has a huge practical side that includes the a 700R4 four-speed automatic transmission with highway-friendly overdrive. transmission. So, if you were starting to think that this is a great truck for all day cruising at any speed, you\'d be very right. This Silverado has comfortable features such as power steering, power brakes with discs up front, grippy low-profile Falken tires, and a 2.73 rear axle ratio that\'s built for the highway.
Great looks mixed with the right comforts means this wild child is wearing sensible shoes. The cherry on top is the affordable price. Call today!!!
