"1988 Chevrolet C1500 Fleetside
Fleetside (plural fleetsides) A pickup truck having flat bedsides (outside quarter panels). The rear quarter panels are flat and run lengthways along the wheel-well openings. Excludes both stepside and styleside truck bed styles. A pickup truck is a fleetside because the sides of the box are flat.
For consignment a slightly older build that is in good shape but can certainly be taken to the next level. Sporting suicide doors that open remotely, a custom fiberglass hood, and a smart flamed two-tone paint job, you can be haulin the feed in style. Do cows like bling?
This self-proclaimed ""bone shaker"" has been modified from its original C1500 look just a bit, in the form of body matching front bumper, horizontal rubbed grille front hiding the headlights behind it, a dual scooped fiberglass hood, chopped suspension, shaved doors, shaved rear bumper, and custom vertical taillights. A resto-mod if you will sporting low profile tires wrapping 20 inch Eagle Alloy wheels on all 4 corners. Black uppers run down to the belt line where white, black and copper flames lick rearward on the belt line. These flames have just a slight highlight of copper patina green at their edges. Below is bathed in copper and seen are some rust areas on the cab corner and rockers. This motif works its way all around the truck with the black on top and copper below. The bed is black and has been modified to accommodate an air bagging system and house a fuel cell and air tank for the bagging. Interesting detail is on the side view mirrors as they are sprayed in a white ghosting paint, with a skull pattern that one has to look closely to see.
In keeping with the custom exterior, the interior has been totally gutted, and now has 3 tone tan, copper and black door panels complete with power windows and locks. Black cloth buckets with a hint of tweed pattern sit within a sea of black carpet. The dash has been custom colored in tan, copper burlap, and a black instrument cluster with new Autometer gauges. An Alpine AM/FM/CD player is installed. Also seen is Hurst Shifter which sits proudly between the buckets.
A crate 350ci V8 is under the hood, has electronic fuel injection, and a 5-speed manual transmission that throws power back to a 10-bolt 3.73 posi pumpkin (literally as it is painted in copper!)
A clean black frame surrounds this undercarriage, and a smattering of copper painted parts is peppered within the framework. Suspension is airbag, and power disc brakes are on front, power drums for the rear.
A fine runner with some good power, a dream like ride from the airbag suspension (think Citroen), and an interesting tactile mix of materials on the interior. Fine handling, easy steering, and overall smooth experience. It also turned some heads on my way around our test zone.
Just a bit of rust but not near enough to write this off, you could buy it and drive it right out of Classic Auto Mall, and it will give you years of useful life. Or you could take it to the next level, as most of the hard work has been done. Interesting color combo, and airbags with custom interior and you are ready to haul some ass, or at least some groceries.
