I had been looking for a new car ever since my truck spun a bearing. I have looked all around and have came to many cars to buy but in the end I've got ... Show morethis one. I found the car after looking everywhere for a new car and found this one that has 116000 miles on it but for one: newer engines can last longer two: owned by a company and WELL taken care of(I think white collared men got in it, drove it and got out) Three: All the miles on it are highway miles. I think it was a good deal at only $6600. I might try and put a 300w amp and a woofer in the trunk. Show Less
First picture of my truck and I at a gas station near Newport, Washington, getting set to head home to Montana. My 'travel and mechanics crew'(my Dad... Show more, brother and a couple friends) and I were bleeding the brakes, although, the engine needed some timing done and only about six or seven of the spark plugs were working. It was dark, we were all tired from driving all day, and trying to keep the truck limping along until a shop to work in, we moved on. After 120 miles of rough idling and running in neutral at stoplights, feathering the throttle to keep the engine from dieing in traffic, we decided to spend the night at my grandparents house and replace the plugs in the morning. The next day with the new AC Delco plugs it ran much better and we were able to bring her 'round to C-Town another 120 miles deeper into Montana. Show Less
Snow all cleaned off and a parking spot shoveled out for it! (The poor 68 Vista wagon, behind me, is hibernating for the winter, Lol) ... Show more; Now, for where to go from here? Last summer I built another 350 to drop into it this spring. I took the Tbi 350 from an '87 and rebuilt it using the '97 camaro rotating assembly and a performance camshaft. Nothing serious, I just wanted to rebuild it now and get a solid base and camshaft into it first(later I'll add nice heads). I've replaced a few interior parts that were missing or broken: passenger door handle was worn and would barely open unless yanked on, the driver's side mirror had it's cover broken and just laying on the mirror itself, the passenger cupholder was missing(my passengers whined a lot without one Lol), there were no floormats so those had to be added and the ignition switch had to be replaced in its old age, causing all sorts of electrical problems. The 4wd won't engage either so it's also going to get fixed asap. The '95 k1500 also had a recall for the wiper motor because it had bad soldering and would cause the wipers to occasionally work or not at all(worked if they felt like it...). So, I had my local Chevy dealer replace that and now they're working 100% of the time. My plans for the truck are getting: the all chrome bumper for the front, bull bar or just a light bar for the front with 4 lights, vertical billet grille insert, black halo headlights with black LED turnsignals, tinted side windows, 2" black fender flares, roll bar with lights, low profile bug deflector, a set of 18's from the new 2007 and up Silverados, redo the old rusting exhaust, fix the cab of it's dent, and replace the box because of it's dents. All of that is just what's off the top of my head, the rest will be afterthoughts.NEW TIRES R HERE! Show Less
Mechanical mods: This truck actually spun a bearing and I decided to buy a new car instead of fixing it and dropping a new motor in it. It proudly had over 2... Show more00000 miles on the truck and about 140000 on the newer motor. I am going to college and I want to have a nicer more reliable vehicle to drive back and forth from there and home.
I put the newer 1993 grill on it. I had the catalytic converter taken off and a glass pack put on and a new chrome tip welded on(she sounds like shes got power now!) A GM Goodwrench 2.8L replacement crate engine and a tranny made for the Chevy 350c.i. full size Silverado's at the time. A K&N air filter and with the housing lid flipped upside down to get like 2 more HP's. I'm planning on taking the air pump out because here in Montana it's not needed and just waists power. I am going to get a body or lift kit with bigger tires(Mountain terrain/All terrain probably) and better rims for it... If I were to do that my friend told me to put different rear axle gears to change the ratio back their for more torque at lower RPM's because my little 2.8L ain't set up to move those big tires.
My friend put a new CD player in it and speakers after his neighbor blew the old speakers and the subwoofer before he sold it to me. Or at least that's what he thought then he tried them again later and they worked so he gave MY sub and amp to him for free...
Just a really good picture.
Old rear end look.
New rear end look.
Just for kicks....
