    Default 96 silverado or not

    Hey everyone, Im new here about 10 minutes. I joined to learn about silverado's. I have the opertunity to buy a 96 silverado for $1500 I think its the top of the line model two tone paint, factory body kit extended cab and leather interior. The catch is it needs a motor. the present motor is knocking and it has 203,000 miles on it. Is it worth getting, and about how much should I spend for a used 5.7 motor.

    Welcome toi the site! If you know it needs a motor and with 200K+ miles, it may not be worth the $1900. Around here it would be, but I don't know what trucks are selling for where you live. Check around.

    What do you mean by factory body kit? Finding a used vortec 350 in MN is not the easiest thing, I am not sure where you are at, so it may just be if you find one you are really not gonna have the ability to haggle. The vortec 350 is used in alot of applications for rodding vehicles and boats. So when one comes available you need to get on them quickly.
