"1978 Chevrolet Silverado Short Box Pickup
This is one sweet running and driving ""Short/Wide"" Chevy Silverado. It came out of Washington state originally and was owned by one person for the first 36 years of its life and is showing 35k original miles. It is primarily an original truck other than the typical wear items that need replaced over the years. The aftermarket wheels and tires really dress it up too. The power comes by way of the original 350 V8 350 Turbo Hydramatic transmission with a 3.07 rear end. The paint finish is great and the interior is in immaculate shape. It starts up easily, the transmission shifts smoothly, and it handles like a newer ride. The tires are nearly new along with the brakes. The originality of the truck is verified with the original build sheet, the Service Parts Identification tag, and warranty booklet. We have recently installed GM air conditioning along with an original AC dash for driving comfort. If you are looking for an easy to drive shortbox pickup with a great look and even better heritage you can enjoy this fine Chevy half ton to truck today and for years to come.

What began as a used car store in the 1970’s soon blossomed into one of the premier classic car dealerships in the country with a showroom boasting more than 25,000 square feet. During that time, celebrities, professional athletes, movie stars and prominent businessmen were highlighting the Duffy’s satisfied customer list. That company, founded on solid Midwest values and work ethic, would become the model for what all future classic and specialty car dealerships would emulate. The “new” Duffy’s is now home to more than 60 vehicles in the same glorious showroom that brought them prominence from the 1980’s through the early 21st century. A full service automotive and detailing department meticulously tends to each vehicle ensuring a fun, sound investment opportunity for its owner.
Turn the clock to today a resurgence of that historic Duffy’s brand. Classic Enterprises that became a descendant business, realized the value of the original Duffy’s recognition and reputation. When the old name became available we jumped on it. The name, the logo and the commitment to excellence have now been resurrected and have replaced the Classic Enterprises moniker. In addition, two of the “old school” members of the original Duffy’s management team are leading the company transition along with a full sales and service staff.
While the definition of a “classic” vehicle may have changed over the years that same,” Old School” Duffy’s commitment to quality and customer satisfaction has not.
