1990 Chevrolet C1500

The muscle car era was not over in the 1990s, it just moved on to the trucks. This 1990 Chevrolet C1500 454 SS was once owned by Ken Schrader! The 454 SS combines the big block from the heavy-duty pickups and the lightest half-ton chassis to create the first muscle truck of the modern era.

This 454 SS is one of those rare beasts that has not been modified or raced daily. It would have been tough for previous owners to resist having fun with a big block pickup, but this one shows plenty of signs that it has been under mature care for the last quarter-century. This includes details such as the well-preserved lower valence, blacked-out grille, and color-matched rear bumper that appears to have never seen a parking lot ding. The fully encompassing Onyx paint makes a nice canvas for the factory chrome wheels and racy red bow tie emblems placed throughout pickup.

It is not a true first-year SS truck without the Garnet red interior and the premium cloth bucket seats. It is quite flashy and looks awesome, especially when viewing it through the vivid black exterior paint. A center armrest console provides extra set of cup holders, which is a nice feature that does not yet come on many classics. All SS pickups came loaded, including power windows, power locks, tilt steering column, air conditioning, and cruise control, making it as much a luxury machine as a “Big Block" Sport Truck. This one is beautifully preserved with the seats showing almost zero wear. We already hinted plenty of times to the monster 454 cubic-inch fuel-injected big block under the hood. This comes from the grand muscle car tradition of Chevy grabbing the largest motor they had, and shoehorning it into the smallest, lightest body for awesome performance. These engines were initially intended to do work in a dually pulling things like horse trailers, but then were installed in an 800lbs lighter you know this one has some serious power to spare. The engine is completely stock, and it runs great. You will be proud to pop the hood at any car show or cruise in because it has an interesting sinister black appearance that fills every inch of the engine bay. The three-speed transmission was swapped with a better 700R4 with overdrive and 3.73 Posi traction rear axle ratio help bring reliable performance. This one is also quite capable on the road thanks to a sports car-like ratio on the power steering and power brakes with discs up front.

This big power truck has averaged about 1,709 miles per year, which shows how much it has been cherished. In fact, it has just crossed the twenty-five-year mark to make it a true classic. Now is the time to strike at a value price before these begin to appreciate even further. Call today!!
