Description:

1989 Chevrolet C/K Pickup 3500 Silverado

For sale is a 1989 Chevrolet K3500 Silverado with the 454 7.4L throttle body injection engine. This truck is a BEAST! I have been rebuilding it for the last several years, and had a ton of fun doing it! ...but now I'm on to my next projects and need to sell this one.

Not-Good Things:
- Body is in rough shape. Lived in the north and has a rust problem. I never got around to fixing it up the way I wanted. I did take the time during the rebuild to get all the loose rust off the underbody/engine bay and spray it with Magnet Paint Chassis Saver.
- Didn't get a pic of it, but the tailgate is a junkyard replacement and is white in color.
- Front right axle seal leaks a little. Despite the rebuild, it decided to start leaking again. It's not bad, but annoying.
- Rear main seal was leaking, but I got it to stop with some conditioner. Might start again someday. It's a two-piece so it would be changed by dropping the oil pan, not the transmission.
- Windshield wipers work always on low speed, but only sometimes on other settings. I'm guessing there's a loose wire in there somewhere.
- Cruise control module is incorrect model for this truck. My guess previous owner bought the wrong one trying to get it to work. I just never got around to fixing it.
- ABS. It has never worked and I didn't care, so I never fixed it.
- Slow leak in coolant reservoir. I have to top it off every now and then.
- Dyno was done before I installed high-flow fuel pump. You can see I ran out of fuel around 3500 RPM. I didn't bother to dyno it again after installing the pump, but I get a few hundred more RPM out of it now. Still not bad with a 3.73 and 33" tires.
I know everything about this truck... I think. If you have questions, just ask.
