Summer is in full swing and there’s still plenty of time to get your hands on the perfect summer truck.
If that’s the case, this door-less 1985 Chevrolet Silverado 2500 short box should fit your, “I just wanna chuck a truck down some trails,” urge to a tee.
You get all the rock-crawling, mud-slingin’ goodies you need like a four-link suspension custom-made by the owner, TH400 transmission with shift kit, NP208 transfer case, a limited slip differential with rear 4:10 gears, and a 5.3L V8 engine lifted from a 2000 Chevy truck with 80,000 miles, according to the seller.
Slip into the racing bucket seats and you’ll notice it’s all business inside: You get a custom dash with a couple of aftermarket gauges and a two pronged, three-spoke steering wheel. And that’s about it.
The truck was listed on eBay for just $7,500 but it failed to draw a single bid before the auction closed. However, like many other cars and trucks that fail to sell, we suspect we’ll see this lifted, trail-ready ’85 Silverado at auction again soon.
