1996 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 ’96 OBS was recently purchased locally here in TX. It is an original Indigo Blue Metallic truck that recently received a complete repaint and all new trim. As you can see in the photos, the paint and body are excellent, the interior is spotless, and the rims and tires are a perfect match for the truck. We installed 2″ drop shackles to level the rear. The headlights and tail lights were dull so we installed some brand new ones. Additional features and options include; 5.7 Vortec V8, Auto, RWD, Cloth Bench Seat, A/C, Airbags, ABS Brakes, Center Console Storage, Chrome Bumpers, Chrome Grill, Cruise Control, Rubber Floormats, Owner Manual, Power Windows/Locks/Mirrors, Factory AM/FM/CD Stereo, Sliding Rear Window, Tilt Steering, Tinted Glass, Tire Tools, Spare Tire, 15″ Rally Wheels, and Thick Cooper Cobra Raised White Letter Tires!
