1978 Chevrolet Silverado Short Box Pickup

This is one sweet running and driving “Short/Wide” Chevy Silverado. It came out of Washington state originally and was owned by one person for the first 36 years of its life and is showing 35k original miles. It is primarily an original truck other than the typical wear items that need replaced over the years. The aftermarket wheels and tires really dress it up too. The power comes by way of the original 350 V8 350 Turbo Hydramatic transmission with a 3.07 rear end. The paint finish is great and the interior is in immaculate shape. It starts up easily, the transmission shifts smoothly, and it handles like a newer ride. The tires are nearly new along with the brakes. The originality of the truck is verified with the original build sheet, the Service Parts Identification tag, and warranty booklet. We have recently installed GM air conditioning along with an original AC dash for driving comfort. If you are looking for an easy to drive shortbox pickup with a great look and even better heritage you can enjoy this fine Chevy half ton to truck today and for years to come.
