This 1989 Chevrolet C1500 Silverado is instantly distinct. A chopped cab, extra sleek style, and a full custom interior make this truck memorable for far more than just its award-worthy paint

The metallic red paint is a terrific way to announce this is a full custom build. It has the kind of radiant style that can’t help but attract everyone’s attention. This ultra-smooth paint helps to highlight the special body kit, shaved door handles, sport mirrors, and custom front end with air dam and cowl hood for a sporty style that’s more aggressive than even Chevy own SS pickups. Plus, we love how this one gives you its own personal take on classic hot rod style with the Cadillac-style tail lights, louvered tailgate, and a full hand-painted graphics package. They even gave you the vintage look of real wood in the truck bed. There’s plenty of added shine from the upgraded headlights, Corvette-style quad exhaust tips, and a terrific set of modern 20-inch alloys. But what will really have people talking is the three-inches chopped out of the roof for a great lowered profile. It’s part of what proves they invested big $$$$ in giving this Silverado a true custom and sporty style.

Everyone tends to take note when you have a remote key fob that pops the doors. So it’s nice to the see that the deep red of the exterior continues inside. You can see there was a solid investment in custom upgrades including the red leather grip of the Boyds steering wheel. That also has some nice chrome that goes with the upgraded metal on the pedals, dash, and full-length custom center console. And speaking of the console, you’ll even spot the TV and VCR mounted within. We like the way it’s pure retro-cool, but if you feel like updating, this custom console will also likely make a nice place to mount the components for a modern stereo. And this one is already loaded with the best features, like high-back bucket seats, power windows, cruise control, and cold-blowing air conditioning.

The engine bay is truly show-ready. Not only are the fenders and firewall painted the same exterior red, but also there was a big investment in polished components. You see it in all the best details, like the valve covers, steel braided lines, and pulleys. So we dare you to find another place that could be shining or color-matched. At the center is a hardy 350 cubic-inch V8 topped with a Street and Performance TPI fuel injection system. And the headers help this exhale with added power and rumble into the Magnaflow dual exhaust. There is a stout TH400 three-speed automatic transmission to handle the power. Plus, that helps make it an easy cruiser. The same goes for the power steering, power brakes, front discs, and modern sport tires.
