1989 Chevy C1500 Silverado – While the fourth-generation of Chevy C/K trucks lived on from 1988-1998, there was a new naming structure for the trucks. Known as the GMT400 platform and nicknamed the OBS Chevy or GMC trucks, short for Old Body Style, this was the final generation for the beloved C/K series. Now designated as the 1500, 2500, and 3500 for the various weight classes, the once-popular Chevy C10 was no longer available. The first truck available for the GMT400 platform was the 1988 Chevy C/K 1500. The four-wheel-drive models were equipped with an Insta-Trac system that allowed drivers to switch from two-wheel drive to four-wheel drive on-the-fly. For the fourth-generation Chevrolet C/K trucks, there were three trim models available: the Cheyenne, Scottsdale, and Silverado. The Cheyenne was the base trim and considered an affordable full-size work truck. The next trim level up was the Scottsdale, which would be your middle-of-the-line truck. Then there was the Silverado trim. Described as the top-of-the-line package, the Silverado was the third trim level available.
Texas Trucks & Classics is the headquarters for classic GM trucks and we spend more time than anyone searching the US for the nicest examples. Once located, we get them up to speed mechanically and cosmetically so the new owners will know they’ve purchased a great truck before it even arrives. This beautiful ’89 OBS was a trade-in from a good customer who was eager to own an older stepside we had in inventory. It is an original white truck that has seen one repaint. To get it to our standards we replaced the side trim (was sun faded), rear bumper, and a few other small items to make her really shine. We then had her professionally lowered and the stance is now perfect! As you can see in the photos, the paint is excellent, the interior is spotless, and even the bed looks barely used. We feel one day these clean OBS trucks will be even more valuable than they already are. Therefore we think it’s a real positive that this C1500 will come to the new owner with the original owners manuals, pre-delivery inspection, customer survey, build sheet, purchase order, and even the original salesman’s business card. Additional features and options include; V8, Auto, RWD, Lowered 3″/5″, A/C, Remote Start Alarm, Chrome Bumpers, Chrome Mirrors, Chrome Grill, Cruise Control, Sliding Rear Window, JVC AM/FM/CD Stereo, Tilt Steering, Tinted Glass, Tire Tools, Spare Tire, 20″ Chrome A/R Wheels, and Thick NEXEN Tires! If you are looking for a great Chevy truck that you can drive daily and show on the weekends, this is definitely one to consider.
