1976 Chevy Silverado Long Bed
If you’re interested in something more old school, how about this 1-ton Chevy Silverado Long Bed with a herculean 513 c.i.d. Cadillac V8? That’s an incredible 8.4 liters, if you’re used to metric displacements. According to the seller, the engine is estimated to generate 525 horsepower and a mind-bending 650 ft. lbs. of torque. (Just for reference, the 4.5-liter, straight six in the Land Cruiser FJZ80 cranks out 275 ft. lbs.)
Other highlights include a built Turbo 400 transmission, a 14-bolt, GM rear axle fitted with a Detroit locker, a Dana 60 front axle (both axles have 4:10 gears). The seller states that the engine, transmission, and transfer case were professionally rebuilt 4k miles ago.
This truck is located near Mooresville, NC and the seller is asking $11,500.
