This 1979 Silverado Show Truck has been in a personal collection for many years. Recently was taken out of storage and gone through.
These trucks are hard to come by in this condition, yet alone the custom ones from the era. Here's your chance to own a piece of the 80's crazy show truck history.
The build was commissioned in the beginning of '85 and finished just in time for the second annual Fly-N-Hi and 4-Wheeler Dealers River Run, held Sept. 21-22 in Phoenix.
The truck had a full detailed article with pictures in the '86 issue of Four Wheeler and other articles in the '85 issue of 4WD Action and Off Road America.
Just to be featured in any magazine is a huge honor and speaks highly of the trucks build quality. This truck has 66,338 original miles and looks today as good as when featured in the magazines.
The engine is a Chevrolet 350 cubic inch, with Edelbrock intake manifold and Edelbrock 4 barrel carburetor. The transmission is a turbo 350 with shift kit. Both the engine and transmission have been serviced. No leaks. Custom headers with baffled side pipes, not too loud.
New heavy duty radiator, new fuel lines, fuel filters, vacuum lines. Engine and transmission oil changed.

Excellent oil pressure. New battery installed earlier this year. New air filter installed last week.
