1987 Chevrolet V20 V20
This 1987 Chevrolet K20 pickup is just a nice 4x4 pickup. Nothing radical, just a super clean long bed truck, a smart-running small block V8, and a sharp Midnight Blue paint job that sticks to the factory recipe. This is simply a lot of truck for the money. You already know we love these trucks around our showroom and we probably sell more of them than just about anyone else. So it makes sense that when a nice one shows up, everyone kind of takes notice. This pretty Midnight Blue K20 has that rugged, square-jawed look that makes these trucks the latest and greatest collector-value haulers and the finish is really quite good. It's not so nice that you'll be afraid to put it to work, but when you get home and hose it off it'll look good enough to go out to dinner that night. It's not flashy, but if a pickup can be elegant, this truck nails it. Nice chrome bumpers, a heavy-duty rear bumper, and oversized mirrors make it practical as well as attractive and you can tell just by looking in the bed that this truck has probably never had to very work for a living. There's a spray-in bedliner just in case and a fifth-wheel ball is a nice option if you have some heavy hauling to do (the K20 is a Ã‚Â¾-ton so it can handle it). The matching blue interior is typical GM no-nonsense, with a wide bench seat, a handsome wrap-around dash, and plenty of creature comforts. There are recent carpets on the floor and a new seat cover in a sturdy OEM-grade vinyl, and it appears that the door panels are nicely preserved originals and the dash is in great shape with no cracks caused by UV damage. The gauges are also original and monitor all the engine's vitals, all surrounded by a nice-looking crinkle-finish panel. Features include cold A/C, power steering, power brakes, and an upgraded AM/FM/cassette stereo system and all of it is in working order. Heavy-duty floor mats are a welcome site if you plan on heading into the dirt. The transmission shifter is on the column, but as usual, the 4x4 system is actuated by the floor-mounted transfer case shifter, which also works like it should, giving you a lot of versatility. For power, this Chevy relies on a tried-and-true 350 cubic inch V8 with throttle body fuel injection. It's fairly stock, so reliability is not compromised and it still starts, idles, and drives pretty much like the factory intended. The engine bay is incredibly clean, suggesting that this truck has never really ventured too far off road, and there are signs of recent maintenance to the A/C system. The transmission is an indestructible TH400 3-speed automatic that never seems to mind doing the heavy lifting, and the two-speed transfer case and heavy-duty axles make it invincible in the slippery stuff. Underneath there's exactly zero evidence of rot and as a lifetime Georgia truck, it's probably never seen anything worse than a rain storm. A new exhaust system gives it the right sound and there are signs of recent work on the brakes. And given all the lifted trucks with oversized wheels, we have to say we like the simple white steelies and hubcaps on this big K20, which carry 285/75/16 off-road radials. Nothing radical here, just a nicely finished truck with great maintenance and no stories. If your tastes run more towards stock than modified, then this Chevy deserves a closer look. Call today!
