1987 Chevrolet Silverado
1987 Chevrolet Silverado Pickup
The origin of the word Silverado is confusing and varied with each page you do research from. It has several meanings, however for this description we will just say it is a truck made by Chevrolet and is wildly popular.
For consignment, a 3-owner truck with which the consigner states he drives it all the time. It is a rust-free truck that is a reliable runner.
Brown paint dons this truck's exterior. Straight steel with nicely minded gaps abounds throughout. With Silverado trimmings, meaning plenty of stainless-steel accents, chrome grille and bumper, wheel well surrounds and black window trimmings and slightly used bed painted in brown with a black vinyl tonneau covering we have a classic worker bee ready to take on another 100K miles of faithful service. 15-inch rally wheels wrapped with deep dish trim rings by black wall deep tread tires are noted on all 4 corners of this 4-wheel drive pickup.
A swing of the doors reveals an intricate mix of dark and light tans molded vinyl with some carpeted area on the bottoms, and many differing panels to make up just the doors. These panels show some dirt and smudging. Inside is a tweed broadcloth pattern bench seat stretching from door to door and this tuck and roll insert and smooth outer bolster in tan vinyl covered seat is in good condition showing little wear. In front is the original factory configured tan and brown molded vinyl dash with a black instrument cluster using the square and rectangle design of the mid 1980's. Also within the dash is a toggle for choosing which fuel tank you want to make use of, right of left. Beige carpet is on the floors and remains clean as there are molded rubber diamond plate pattern floor tray mats. Above is a tight felted headliner.
Under the hood in the original unrestored engine bay, is the original 305ci V8. It is fed fuel by EFI and has a 700R4 4-speed automatic transmission on back, along with a 10-bolt 3.08 rear axle.
Some slight spotty surface rust with mostly undercoated patina surfaces are underneath. Still with black floor pans and rockers, and a dual fuel tank has been optioned on. Power disc brakes are on front, and power drums for the rear are noted and leaf springs are seen all around.
She fired right up and was ready for another haul, although our test drive would not have actually taken cargo aboard just a few trips around the track and she was proven to work well. Nice smooth acceleration and shifting, bias free panic stopping, and easy driveability. Noted the A/C blows warm, and the radio turns on but puts out no sound.
Whether it be your main mode of transportation, or a second truck for a farm or ranch or cabin location, you are sure to have years of reliable service left in this truck. No rust, and it will be well accepted as is. Go on, get to hauling!
