This 1988 Chevrolet K1500 Silverado 4×4 is a cool mix of preservation and upgrades

It makes for an impressive classic that still has everything you want – including a fuel-injected V8, cold-blowing A/C, and four-wheel-drive.

This was the first year for the new style Chevy C/Ks. It’s a design that was so sleek and interesting, that you can still see echoes of it in the brand new Silverados. That’s why people love them, and a few special ones received good care over the years. That’s how you get such a complete pickup like this one. But there’s more going on here than just preservation. After all, Chevy never gave you this kind of shining front end. The bright grille goes with the chrome bumpers and polished 18-inch alloys from a later Silverado. So not only does the glossy paint give you a red-blooded classic American style, but also you have plenty of Americana style brightwork to go with it, too. The odometer represents the full actual mileage, but the overall straight and clean look of this pickup tells its full story of good care and investments over the years. Plus, the 4×4 stance, bed liner paint, thick rubber bed mat, and proper trailer hitch are all there to remind you that this classic can still get to work.

The red interior has been well-respected and remains comfy. As a premium Silverado, you get the best features, like power windows, power locks, factory air conditioning, a tilt steering column, cruise control, and a sliding rear window. It’s a highly stock setup, right down to the working courtesy lights. But here are the right handy upgrades, like an AM/FM/CD stereo, cup holders, and thick rubber floor mats (always great to contain muddy boots.)

One of the big reasons you want a more modern classic pickup is under the hood. After all, modern fuel-injected power on the 5.7-liter V8 is an advantage we all want. Plus, this newer generation of Silverado was the first to offer an independent front suspension on the 4×4 drivetrain. That means you still get the go-anywhere prowess, but when you’re just riding in the city, this is much more comfortable than other classic 4x4s. In fact, there’s power steering, power brakes, front discs, a four-speed automatic transmission w/overdrive to make this a great pickup for travels near or far.
