This 1998 Chevrolet Silverado K1500 Extended cab 4x4 is the right mix of capable and luxurious that makes it quite irresistible even before you think about the appeal of driving a modern classic truck.
The black paint is a respray from later in life, and it retains a nice gloss to show off the well-respected panels of this Silverado. There's a silver lower section and golden pinstripe, but your favorite shine might just be from the newer Mickey Thompson wheels. Everything on this truck looks good but it never gets too fancy. That's because the cornerstone of its appeal is all about how useful it continues to be. You have a nice-sized bed that's protected with a GM bedliner, and there's a proper trailer hitch with plug. So it knows how to get to work.
The interior offers the kind of luxury you get in few other classic trucks. It starts off with some great-looking leather seats. The front is a terrific setup that can sit three across when you want it, or fold down the center jump seat for individual comfort. In fact, speaking of comfort, the front seats are heated and yours power adjusts. The passenger side has a rear half door for even better access to the rear seat. There's also genuine room for three in the back, or you can use it for a secure place to stow your gear. This is loaded with the best features like power windows, power locks, an AM/FM/cassette stereo with CD, and provisions for factory air conditioning (it will need servicing to blow cold again.) And a tilt steering column, cruise control, and a full set of gauges make it easy to get comfortable for the long haul.
Under the hood is an ultra-tidy presentation of the 5.7-liter fuel-injected V8.the We're told the engine was rebuilt only about 3k miles ago and a new transmission was installed 5k miles ago. And the way this one fires up, runs, shifts, and feels out on the road all reaffirm a confident driver impression. So while this is an actual mileage pickup, you can see and feel the large investments that keep it feeling fresh and strong. In fact, strength is a cornerstone of this generation of Silverado. They are known to be robust pickups, and that only gets better on a 4x4 that's enhanced with a lifted suspension, Z71 off-road package, and newer Dick Cepek Trail Country tires. Plus, power steering, power brakes with ABS, front discs, and a four-speed automatic transmission with overdrive make for a solid all-around driver.
The sale comes complete with the owner's manual and title documentation. This is a lifelong North Carolina truck, and it has been treated with the right care you get on a southern pickup. So if you're looking for both style and substance, this modern classic Silverado really delivers. Call now!
