1987 Chevrolet Suburban Silverado
1987 Chevrolet Suburban Silverado
You may know that the Silverado is one of the most popular Chevy trucks for sale right now, but you might not know that the truck shares its name with a trim level that was used on a previous model truck that was introduced in 1975. The Chevy C/K and the GMC Suburban both offered a Silverado trim before the name was transferred to the new truck that would take the place of the CK. While facts like these might seem like little more than interesting trivia, they actually help you gain a more complete understanding of the history of the Chevy Silverado, which can help you understand how it has evolved to become the quality truck it is today. Then when you go shopping for Chevy trucks for sale, you have a better appreciation for the value the Silverado offers.
Complete in Silverado trim, this 1987 Bowtie Suburban is the ultimate suburbia shuttler to soccer games, baseball, hockey etc. It is not a shabby grocery getter either. Anyone can hop into the ubiquitous SUV these days, but a classic Suburban in Silverado trim? Now you are arriving in style!
What has 4 headlights, 4 doors, 4-wheel drive and 3 rows of seats? Well our consignment that's what! Bathed in two tone Charcoal Metallic with Red side panels, shiny trimmings, tinted windows black glass surrounds and a long back for that 3rd tow and room for all the goods, you could start your own shuttle business back and forth to the airport. Just above the rockers is a wide aluminum trimming separating the red from the charcoal, and it wraps around the entire truck. 4 doors for the passengers and driver, but also 2 more open wide on back, for that cargo area and full access. Bumpers are shiny although the rear has plenty of stickers on it. 15-inch GM deep dish wheels are on all 4 corners. Some invasive rust is noted behind wheel wells and around rocker areas.
Pile 'em in with 3 benches to choose from, all wrapped in some tuck and roll broadcloth and gray vinyl sides, and all looking good. An 80/20 second row allows easy access to the rear 3rd row bench which sports big armrests and ashtrays (smoke 'em if ya got 'em!). Gray carpeting floods the floors, and in front the original dash setup and steering wheel in 50 shades of gray and metal appliqué are seen. A big and tight light gray headliner is noted as is all nicely preserved door panels with their tinted glass. Room for 9!
An unrestored engine and bay sits under the hood. 350ci's for the V8 fed by EFI (TBI Injection) and backed up by a 4-speed 700 R4 automatic. A 10-bolt rear is on back.
Some heavy surface rust on a few suspects but still solid save for the rocker areas where the invasive rust has taken over on those exterior rockers and wheel well bottoms. Leaf spring suspension is all around, and power disc brakes are on front, as power drums grace the rears.
Turn the key and she's off to the test track. All 9 of us from Classic Auto Mall as we wanted to see if it could take it, and it handled it swimmingly. Don't tell the owner though, it could be construed as goofing off, and it probably would be true. But I digress, and it ran great, handled well, and all of us were comfortable for the most part. The radio is disconnected so we had to listen to all the nonsense emanating from the back rows!
Some rust, some patina, some kind of hauler for the kids and all their stuff, all from 1987 in Silverado luxurious trim, and plenty of room to boot.
