A true NO RESERVE auction for this amazingly well executed square body. This truck came from a major collector with over a hundred American cars and trucks built over the past 50 years in Central California. This truck has barely seen the light of day since being built. Always stored in a climate controlled building, but now she's ready to stretch her legs with a new owner. A black on red short bed with a big block 502, this square is as cool as they come.
The truck was taken down to bare metal and properly prepped for a black finish that goes extremely deep. Countless hours went into the bodywork and paint, the end result is a finish that is pleasure to wipe down and polish. A show quality finish that is sure to please even the well trained paint guys. All of the trim is in excellent condition. The stainless weather guards are in showroom condition, as well as the stainless rain gutters. She's laser straight from every angle. All the gaps are just right, no weird sags or fitment issues.
The interior is spectacular. The bucket seats and console are a huge upgrade. Plenty of legroom and comfortable on the long trips, with cupholders and plenty of storage. All the luxury options are here, including power windows, power door locks, cruise control, air conditioning, tilt, dome lamp, tachometer, fuel tank selector switch, locking glove box, upgraded door panels with saddle detail and storage pockets, AM/FM radio. Everything works. The dash, upholstery, and carpet are perfect showroom condition. All interior trim is like new, gauges are crystal clear, the fit and finish on everything is excellent, no details were missed.
The heart of this beast is strong. Very strong. Its labeled under the hood as a 454 but is in fact an extremely healthy 502 that will put your back into the seat with ease. When you fire it up you are sure to smile. The ceramic coated long tube headers and Flowmasters will remind you that you're in for a treat. This truck is not subtle. She hauls ass and turns heads everywhere. Its not so loud that you can't have a conversation on the freeway, but its loud enough for motor heads to stare when you are rolling by. The driving experience is just awesome. Very responsive. TH400 auto with great shifting manners. You'll burn rubber, you'll burn fuel, you'll be looking for reasons to go for a drive. Steering is excellent, very easy to maneuver at all speeds. Its one of the silkiest smooth power steering boxes I have used. Under the truck is just as clean as up top. Everything was properly prepped and painted. Nothing but clean west coast dry metal, no hidden treasures. The gas tanks are spotless. Brakes are great. Power disc up front, drums in the rear. Upgraded suspension rides super smooth. 12 bolt rear with Posi. Lots of chrome details throughout the truck including diff cover, brake booster, alternator, ac bracket, water neck, and more. The tonneau cover was custom made and matches the theme well, but the stainless snaps look nice with it removed also. All in all, its a bad ass truck thats sure to please for generations to come.
Please call me with any questions. Cell number 949.521.1484. I will have the truck for sale locally and reserve the right to end the auction early. The last few trucks sold before auction end, so if you're seriously interested please inquire. If you have zero rating please contact directly or bids can be cancelled. The truck is located in San Clemente, CA. Local inspection is encouraged. I have done my best to describe the truck, its beautiful, but it is 40 years old and will not be the same as a 2019 Silverado on the dealer lot and will show signs of imperfections. NO WARRANTY IS WRITTEN, EXPRESSED, OR IMPLIED. $1000 PayPal deposit due within 48 hours of auction close. Remaining balance to be paid within 7 days by wire preferred, or cash in person. Cashiers checks can take multiple days to clear, truck will not be released until funds are clear. I can assist with shipping but all, costs are on the buyer. GOOD LUCK!!!!!!
