AutoHunter Spotlight: 1998 Chevrolet K1500 Silverado 4×4


Featured on AutoHunter, the online auction platform driven by ClassicCars.com, is this 1998 Chevrolet K1500 Silverado.
With regard to pickup trucks, some people say, “They don’t make them like they used to.” Today’s feature C/K-Series could be the solution for someone wanting old-school equipment with like-new condition. After all, there aren’t many chances to buy a 25-year-old truck with fewer than 20,000 miles on the odometer. This Victory Red over Pewter K1500 Silverado has only 18,660 miles and is being offered with a CB radio, a window sticker, owner’s booklets, a brochure, and a clear title by the seller in New Jersey.

Commonly known as the last of the General Motors “OBS” or “Old Body Style” generation, this platform (dubbed the GMT400) first debuted in model year 1988. The design language was a distinct shift from the previous square-body look. A mid-cycle refresh was carried out in 1995 that brought redesigned sideview mirrors and new safety equipment like four-wheel anti-lock brakes. Standard daytime running lights were added the following year.

This Victory Red and Pewter two-tone 1998 half-ton truck is about as fresh as they come. It’s a high-optioned example with features like a bug deflector, wheel arch moldings, bed rail protectors, a bedliner, and a hitch. Despite having lived in the northeast, the body looks clean – something we can attribute to the low mileage accrual. The CARFAX on this truck is very straightforward, showing lifelong residence under just one titled owner in New Jersey. The most recent mileage reading logged was 18,576 in 2016.

Even though this truck is a workhorse, the in inside of the cab offers some luxurious conveniences like gray leather upholstery, a fold-down center armrest, and power features for the steering, mirrors, door locks, and windows. A JVC touchscreen audio system has been added, and the truck came from the factory with air conditioning, keyless entry, cruise control, and a tilt-adjustable steering column.

Power for this full-size pickup comes from a Vortec 5.0-liter V8 mated to a four-speed automatic transmission and a dual-range transfer case. The seller reports that fluids have been changed and maintenance is up to date.

Whether your truck needs involve the occasional DIY project, an excursion to the lake, a campout, or the occasional furniture move, the fourth-generation GMT400 Silverado has been proven capable time and time again over the last couple of decades. This one has only just begun its life of service.
