Availableto own on a NO RESERVE auction is a beautiful big red 1987 Chevrolet V10 4x4 short bed with the Silverado package. This rig has lived its life in the mild fertile climate of the Salinas Valley also known as "Americas Salad Bowl" . This means this truck has been able to be preserved without any rust issues and still wears the same "Bright Red" paint she was given in 1987. This truck is special for a few reasons, one being 1987 was the last year GM built pickup trucks as squarebodys. This is the last of a legendary and trulyiconic body style that ran for almost 20 years. 1987 was also the only year these trucks had fuel injection. It was a transition year for GM where the trucks all had the updated and newer technology but instead of the newer bodystyle they combined the old "Square" bodystyle with the better motor and drive train. GM also changed the model designations on trucks from C/K to R/V which would be carried into the newer trucks, making this a v10 instead of a k10. The last year of car models tend to be the best years because simply all the problems have been worked out. It is like night and day driving a fuel injected 1987 squarebody vs. an older squarebody with a carbuerated motor. As pickups go a short bed with 4 wheel drive are the hardest to find because production numbers were far less than long beds and 2 wheel drives. Yes, this truck is the best year for a squarebody. Yes, this truck is a shortbed 4x4 the best body combo for a squarebody. But what makes this truck really cool, is the overall originality of it. This truck is 30 years old and still has the original Red paint, not only that it still has the original body moldings, black and gray pinstripes and emblems. If you know these trucks you know GM paint was never known to be long lasting and the moldings are notorious for coming off. The fact that everything is all original is a testamentto how this truck was kept for the last 30 years.The question you have to ask yourself is; Where are you going to find one like this? Demand for Squarebody trucks is at an all time high. You can go online right now and build an entire truck out of catalog parts from various outlets (LMC, Brothers, etc) The difference is this Squarebody is 100% American made, with original American parts, made by Americans in America. These catalogs are filled entirely with parts made in Asia that look like the real thing but are made of cheaper quality that never fits right. There is something about restoring an iconic American truck with Asian parts that seems silly to me. That is why this original Red short bed 4x4 1987 Chevy truck is something that wouldn'tbe easy to go out and duplicate. Don't miss out on this opportunity to own this awesome rig.

Cosmetically this truck is in great shape. The "Bright Red" paint shines very nicely. It is not flawless there are spots on the hood where it has come off but remember they are only original once. The truck does not have rust issues on any fender, cab corner, floorboard, underneath. The body is straight, there are a few dings and imperfections as any 30 vehicle would have but overall it is quite straight. The bed is in great shape and has obviously not been used as a real worktruck. As mentioned earlier, another cool evidence of originality is the original body moldings are all still attached as well as the wheel well trim pieces and "Fuel Injection" emblem on the tailgate. The original gray and black pinstripe is also still very much intact, also the rock chip guards on the front of the rear wheel well are still intact. The original grille and lights are in good shape, The bumpers are shiny and nice there is a small ding on the top of the rear bumper. It sits nice on the Mickey Thompson Baja Claw 33's. Overall this truck cosmeticallyis not flawless but is in great shape for being a 30 year old original truck, and because it is so original some of the flaws can be overlooked as they are only original once.

The interior is in great shape as well. The Dark Charcoalcolor matches well with the Bright Red exterior. The Silverado door panels are in good shape the strap is missing on the drivers side. The dash and gauge cluster is in good operating order all the the lights are in good operating condition. The original steering wheel was unfortunatelyreplaced some years back.The original bench seat is in good shape with no rips or tears. The headliner is also in great shape (which is rare).

Mechanically this truck is in good working order. It is a pretty stock setup. The 5.7 liter TBI motor is much better than the motors it replaced. This makes the driving experience much more pleasurable. The 700r4 transmission shifts smoothly in all gears and the Np208 transfer case shifts into 4wd fine. It has dana 44 front axle and a 10 bolt rear end with 3:73 gears combined with the fuel injected 350 gas milage is improved and again makes owning an 87 squarebody more enjoyable. With a small 2 inch lift with stock 15 inch rallys and 33 inch Mickey Thompson Baja Class this truck has a nice stance. There is 2 12 gallon gas tanks which are both working.Please rememberthis is a 30 year old truck, I have included well over 100 photos and a video of this truck running. I have explained the condition of the truck as I see it. If you have any questions or further explanationplease feel free to ask.
