1997 C1500 Extended Cab Silverado
(6k. on rebuilt trans)
I am the 3rd owner of this truck. I've had it approximately 2 years. The previous owner was a former co worker of mine and the 1st owner was her brother in law.
I've been going through the truck since I purchased it and have changed the following;
- a/c compressor & drier
- battery, alternator
- drive belt, idler pulley and tensioner
- a/c control panel, blower motor regulator
- inner door handles (both), all the hinge pins and bushings (my doors don't hang and they close like a new truck)
- brake booster
- intake manifold and valve cover gaskets
- maf, full tune up (cap, rotor, wires, plugs, fuel filter)
- rebuilt trans
- trans mount, carrier bearing, rear main seal, u-joints
- headlamp switch
-radiator & hoses
I also recently picked up a brand new keyless entry remote. Previous owner did a fuel pump and water pump prior to selling to me.
I wanted to build a truck that looked good and could be driven anywhere without a AAA card in my wallet.
Truck is lowered 2/4 with Bell Tech spindles and Bell Tech drop leafs. (that's right, leafs, not hangers and shackles). Truck has been lowered for almost a year. While installing the lowering kit, I also changed the following;
- inner and outer tie rods
- pitman arm
- idler arm
- upper and lower ball joints
- inner and outer bearings
- front pads and rotors
- all new shocks
The upper control arms were notched for proper wheel alignment.
Truck currently sits on KMC XD 656 22" wheels, on 265/35 22's with good tread life left to the tires. It has 1.25" spacers to correct the offset.
Under the bed you'll find a set of Hornblasters horns. This isn't that 299.99 triple chrome garbage from eBay. This is a Hornblasters.com Shocker 540 kit also known as Conductor's Special Model 540 Train Horn Kit.
The interior is pretty much just a stock gray interior. It has newer model sun visors and an Alpine CD head unit.
I may have forgotten a thing or 2 as I write this that I've done or changed.
Check engine light is on and has been on for about 9 or 10 months. It's showing a code for low cat efficiency. I have a scanner, I can show you. Basically it's telling you the convertor isn't cleaning the smog as good as it should. It is not clogged and does not rattle. I have not had a loss in power or lost any fuel mileage per gallon. I have not changed the cats out only because I wasn't sure if I wanted to keep it stock or put headers & a performance exhaust under it.
There is also a crack in the dash. There is a place in Hollywood that sells a thin plastic dash cover that replicates a new dash. I was going to put this on before I decided to sell it.
The truck stops but it does need back brakes. Just the drums to be exact. I have a new set of shoes sitting in the garage. I didn't put them on only because the drums really show their age and are glazed pretty good.
The truck is also in need of paint. Other than a few small dings, the truck doesn't need body work. It has a bedliner in the bed, but you should know it's not a good one, it's pretty much done. I pulled all the ugly moldings and badges as you can see in the pictures and it also has a fiberglass roll pan.
It was a tough decision I fought back and forth with about selling this truck. It has come a long way and is a great start for someone to finish a nice truck. I'm asking $4500 for it as it sits.

There is no rust on it, it is and always has been a Florida truck. Originally came from Okeechobee, currently resides in Broward county. Which is the Ft. Lauderdale area.
