1998 Chevy C1500 Ex Cab Silverado – Thanks to the tough-guy look of the Dodge Ram pickup and the rounded mod-squad shape of the Ford F-Series pickup in the same era, the Chevrolet and GMC C/K full-size pickups suddenly looked like the old kids on the block. Yet, in truck years, the General Motors full-size pickups aren’t really that old. The design was first introduced in 1988 as a completely new offering inside and out, and even today it looks clean, crisp and contemporary. GM’s introduction of the Vortec engines added a lot more power under the hood. In horsepower, the 4.3-liter V6 has more than the previous 5.0-liter V8, the 5.0-liter V8 has more than the previous 5.7, and the 5.7 has more than the previous 7.4. The 7.4 is also way up. Across the board, torque figures are up about 10 to 20 lb.-ft. For 1997, GM improved the power steering and revised the transmissions for improved operation. The interior redesign for 1995 was a welcome change. Gone are the flat surfaces and square corners, replaced by flowing curves and a significant increase in function. The C/K pickups are also available with an optional third door on the passenger’s side that allows easier access to the rear for piling in people or cargo.
We have sold several GM trucks of this era in all sizes and configurations. When we located this beautiful Silverado here locally, we picked it up right away. It has all the right features that everyone wants. … excellent condition, well maintained, pristine interior, 3rd door for easy entry, a great color and low miles! As the owner of the dealership I have personally driven this truck to and from home for about a week. It drives like new and we have found zero mechanical needs. The truck is in excellent condition with only very minor scratches/nicks/dings on doors and roof. The engine bay and interior are as nice and you will find anywhere. A few missing radio knobs are all that’s lacking to make the interior a 10. A complete list of features and options includes; V8, Auto, RWD, 3rd Door, Front Airbags, ABS Brakes, Bedliner, Center Console Storage, Chrome Grill, Cruise Control, Rubber Floor Mats, Owners Manual, Power Steering/Brakes, Power Windows/Locks/Mirrors, Factory Delco AM/FM/CD Radio, Tilt Steering, Tinted Glass, Tire Tool, Spare Tire, Factory 15″ Alloy Wheels, and Thick Firestone Destination 235/75/R15 Tires! If you are looking for a very original C/k 1500 that drives perfect, holds the entire family, and only has 89k miles, look no further!
