1987 Chevrolet Silverado 1500 Silverado1987 SHORT BED SILVERADO
This is a chance to own the most desirable of the Chevrolet square body trucks. 1987 was the only year the square bodies were fuel injected and the only year the 5.7 350 engine was offered in the '81-'87 half tons. This truck is very solid and has a ton of eye appeal. It's is red on red, definitely the right color combination, and it has brand new tires.
I just acquired this truck and since I already have eight vehicles licensed and insured I just can't keep it as much as I'd like to. With that being said I will pass the information from the previous owner, he is an older gentleman and had gotten the truck from his son, between the two of them they have owned the truck for several years. He only drove the truck occasionally, the engine and transmission have both been rebuilt, although it was a few years ago the engine only has 35,886 miles since (rebuilt at 123,922 miles) and the transmission has 29,045 miles (rebuilt at 130,763 miles). I drove the truck 200 miles the other day and it ran and drove great. The engine runs very smooth, the transmission has a shift kit and shifts very firm. I believe the detent cable could use adjusting however because it's touchy when downshifting. It has nice dual exhaust that sounds good but isn't obnoxiously loud. The wheels are 15x8 and 15x10 with brand new tires. It has an aftermarket radio that seems to work well, The truck was recently painted and looks good, however I would call it a very nice driver quality because there are a few spots where the body should have been prepped a little better, it still looks good, it's just not perfect. The truck looks good underneath, the floorboards, rocker panels, cab mounts, etc are all rust free. This truck is very dependable and could easily be an every day driver but keep in mind it's 30 years old so please don't expect it to be new. As with most older vehicles it could use a little tinkering, I noticed the reverse lights don't work, it's missing the knob from the headlight switch, rearview mirror needs to be reattached, etc. The previous owner said the cruise control switch didn't work occasionally and included a new assembly with the truck. I used the cruise a couple times and it seemed to work ok for me. Again, it's a nice truck, it's just not perfect, but then it's also not $15-20K like some of them.
