Man this is a nice truck! The body panels, hood and tailgate are as straight as a pin, and with the bright silver paint with a very fine metallic, the cleanliness of this truck is nothing short of impressive!
The blood red interior is factory stock and is in excellent condition with the comfortable velour bench seat, perfect dash pad and properly working instruments. The door panels are original and look great as well.
Open either door and find the entry jams paint as nice as the exterior paint. All of the weather stripping is as new and pliable, and you'll notice the rear window is a slider.
Pop the hood on this Short wide and you'll find an engine compartment that looks better than it probably did when new. The glossy black paint on the inner fender-wells makes a nice contrast to the smooth, strong running, clean 350 nestled in the middle.
This truck is so subtly tasteful I really don't have to say anything about it's appearance, but you really need to be aware of some of the clean, possibly overlooked traits that make this truck so impressive. For instance, the tailgate with the brushed aluminum, wide Silverado trim goes nearly un-noticed, but looks amazing. The Billet style grill on the front of the truck fits the overall clean presentation of the truck, and of course, this truck has been given an aggressive, professionally lowered stance, and the clean Chevy truck wheels, and wide tires are the icing on the cake.
I can go on and on about how cool this truck looks, but you already know that. What you really need to know is that this truck starts right up and fast idles when cold, settles into a nice tone idle from the full dual exhaust system, and although lowered, this truck actually drives very nicely. The undercarriage is very clean and nicely painted too.
Low and wide Chevy trucks always look great, and this particular truck is as clean as they come!
