This commanding and imposing classic American ‘Chevy’ Long Box is the ultimate symbol of American culture, and has been for decades with Chevrolet a forerunner in the phenomenon. This incredible example is finished in factory original Summit White (code U8624). The factory coachwork boasts a brilliant pure shine and uniform finish, commensurate with the amazingly low miles of just 9,993. This exceptional example will uphold the closest scrutiny with just a tiny ding to the chrome nearside front arch trim and light scratches to the tailgate top worthy of mention. All remaining trim and bright chrome pieces are pristine. A spotlessly clean engine bay features factory stickers, and the wheel tubs and underside reflect the very minimal use this truck has had. This magnificent classic Chevrolet is as attention grabbing as it is huge, and offers a tremendous sense of occasion on every journey!
A truly exceptional interior offering as close to new condition as can be expected! The incredible low mileage is clearly evident upon climbing into the cabin space. The Custom Cloth upholstery in Neutral is extraordinarily clean and free from wear with just one tiny faint marking to the passenger backrest negating the term perfect being used. Tailored GM rubber floor mats have protected the carpets from new helping them to remain pristine, full and free from wear. The colour matched fascia with incorporated functions and switches are simply perfect with all operating seamlessly, including the ice cold air conditioning as part of the optional Convenience Package. The term ‘time warp’ often used loosely is absolutely justified in this instance. Beautifully preserved and very impressive.
ENGINE & TRANSMISSION
Fitted with GM’s proven Vortec 5,000cc V8 unit with Sequential Fuel Injection (SFI), a power output of 230HP at 4,600rpm and 285ib.ft of torque at 2,800 rpm is achieved. The high commanding driving position is complimented by the deep V8 rumble which is both exciting yet unobtrusive. A set of performance exhaust downpipes offer the next owner the option to further exploit and enhance the delightful V8 roar should they wish! The three speed automatic transmission with column shift and manual control operates perfectly and offers relaxed cruising capabilities.
WHEELS, TYRES & BRAKES
Optional upgrade chrome alloys wheels from renowned makers Mickey Thompson instantly raise the imposing nature of this Chevrolet as well as raising the ride height! In absolutely pristine order with no damage, these expensive additions instantly enhance the muscular appeal and the chunky all-terrain Hankook Dynapro LT285/70 R17 tyres have masses of tread remaining. Power assisted with anti-lock assistance, the front disc and rear drum braking configuration brings this monstrous machine to a steady and assured halt.
Registered new on 1st January 1997, this Californian Chevrolet Silverado C/K2500 Fleetside Long Box has enjoyed the warm dry climes of the sunshine state its entire life until being imported to the UK by a previous owner. Himself a UK National returning home after a work placement simply couldn’t bear to leave the vehicle behind after sourcing it from the only Californian owner, so it came back with him! With all import duties and levies paid, and now UK registered with a valid MOT certificate, this example is ready for enjoyment and showing off! Previously sold by KGF Classic Cars in June 2015, our customer has enjoyed this imposing truck but a house move and loss of storage has enabled us to acquire the vehicle back.
The history file consists of import and UK registration paperwork as well as a collection of US and UK invoices and maintenance receipts. Offering immense practicality and for anyone keen on Americana appreciation, this dare to be different classic truck is surprising easy to drive and will guarantee you a smile on your face.
MOT July 2017, HPI Clear, Approved Used Car Check.
