1994 Chevy Chevrolet LS S10 S 10 4WD long bed pickup truck TRADE BARTER TRADES ?

 

I’m selling this truck to go back to a short bed  2wd version vehicle.

Possible trades and cash will be considered for the following newer vehicles:

  • Saturn Vue 2wd
  • Honda Pilot or CRV 2wd
  • Toyota Tacoma or smaller pickups 2wd
  • Ford Ranger 2wd
  • And possibly????  2wdJ.

 I rarely if ever use 4wd so I really don’t need it. And the 4wd on this vehicle works fine.

 

Let it be known, I will not use the word “loaded” when describing this truck.

I have no idea why dealers use this word unless a vehicle has “all” available options on the vehicle. Your comments on “loaded” will be kindly acknowledged.

 I’m not a dealer as this truck has been a daily commuter to the office for almost 4 years.

 Everything works on this truck. If it had an electrical or mechanical issue, it was properly & promptly repaired by this old time engineer.

 The overall condition is very good for a truck of this age. All original except for the normal wear & tear mechanical parts that were replaced for preventive & corrective maintenance reasons. Any parts that were replaced where high quality & not low cost run of the mill replacement parts for reliability purposes. I don't believe in taking shortcuts. 

 Keep in mind, this is a 1994 and some maintenance will be needed from time to time (like any other vehicle).

 Low miles for it’s age…<133K miles !!!

 Always parked & stored in a heated garage when not in use.

 Solid, straight body with (can I say this) no rust.

The undercarriage does have spots of light surface rust as well as the full length box/ladder frame. It has been treated with carwell rust proofing treatment by a local Mercedes mechanic to protect all exterior panels.

 The passenger side lower door does have a slight crease/scratch as seen in the pictures. No perforations or rust on this area. This crease was on the vehicle when I purchased the vehicle approximately 4 years ago.

 The interior is in near excellent condition. The seat have always been covered to protect the original upholstery. The is a small hole on the drivers seat door edge by the seat belt area but otherwise no further damage.

 This vehicle has the “known” & obvious options:

  • Vortec VIN W V6 engine.
  • Optional full gauge instrument cluster.
  • Intermittent windshield wipers.
  • 4 Wheel drive non-electronic shift package (very reliable).
  • Automatic transmission with overdrive (very smooth)
  • AM/FM cassette
  • Overhead illuminated vanity lights
  • Map lights
  • Tow package with the optional vortec v6 ????? I don’t know for sure. I have towed one large u-haul trailer down state once with no issues & plenty of power to climb hills in 2wd.

 Overall, this truck does not have all the electrical, convenience options however, this is what makes this truck very reliable from a mechanical standpoint.  

 When this vehicle was purchased approximately 4 years ago, our local GM dealer changed ALL the fluids (excluding the power steering fluid). This included the gearcases & transmission & coolant flush.

The fuel pump, fuel filter, fuel injection spider assembly & cat back exhaust was also replaced by a local GM dealer 3 years ago.

Newer all season Michelin radial truck tires. Brake pads, rotors, shoes & calipers replaced last year.

This truck has always utilized Mobile 1 synthetic 5w-30 motor oil & premium micronic grade oil filter. Does not use or burn oil.

I would feel very comfortable driving this truck anywhere across country as the radiator, water pump, all coolant hoses, coolant, Delco heavy duty battery, idler pulleys (2), vacuum lines & serpentine drive belt was replaced last summer.

 This quality truck does have zerk fitted grease joints not found on newer trucks.

***The only issue with this truck (since I purchased it approximately 4 years ago), is the play in the steering. The steering does not pull at highways speeds but in heavy winds, 1/2 inch CW and/or CCW steering correction will need to be exerted lightly to keep the vehicle going straight, at highway speeds in heavy winds. The looseness in the steering has been isolated down to the power steering gearbox. I have not replaced the gearbox but it is available @ Rock auto for $90+ including core charge. This is a common issue with old chevy trucks (as my old 1989 Silverado had this characteristic also) but easy to remedy by replacing the steering gearbox (unless there is an adjustment I don’t know about).


NOTE:

The buyer will ultimately be responsible for pickup & applicable shipping arrangements of this nice truck from my location.

I will assist the buyer in the paperwork from this location but not delivery of this vehicle from my location.

 

If you have any questions, please feel free to contact me anytime.

New Chevrolet Silverado to be revealed on Facebook on Thursday

Tue, 11 Dec 2012 08:29:00 EST

There's not much to see here, but if you're one of those waiting for the reveal of the 2014 Chevrolet Silverado 1500, above is the teaser image that Chevrolet posted on its Facebook page. We've seen the truck in form-fitting camo before, and even less can be made out here beyond those seriously punchy Silverado-esque fenders and the knowledge that the projector-beam headlamps teased previously do indeed work. We'll have to wait until Thursday for a full perusal of the "bold exterior design" and "careful attention given to every detail" we've been promised.
Gathering intel and rumors, magnesium and aluminum contribute to the Silverado's weight loss plan, the purported "High Country" top-tier trim will contribute to luxury pickup truck competition and profit margins and the next-generation small-block V8 will contribute to improved fuel economy. On the engine note, there have been rumors of available V6 engines, and when Facebook user John Jones asked "Where's your answer to that EcoBoost Chevy?", the Bowtie replied "stay tuned on the 13th. We think you'll be pleased...".
Along with the "Raise the Bar" tag, Chevrolet says of the Silverado, "You asked, we delivered." You can watch the reveal live on Chevrolet's Facebook page at 9:30 am EST, this Thursday, December 13. The GMC Sierra 1500 will also be there, and we'll see both in person at the Detroit Auto Show in January.

GM recalling over 243,000 crossovers over possible seat belt defect

Tue, 17 Aug 2010 11:28:00 EST

2010 Buick Enclave - Click above for high-res image gallery
The summer of 2010's recall hit parade continues unabated today, with General Motors having just announced that it is asking 243,403 owners of its 2009-2010 Lambda crossovers to bring their three-row haulers in for inspection. The culprit? Second-row seat belts in select Buick Enclave, Chevrolet Traverse, GMC Acadia, and Saturn Outlook CUVs have "failed to perform properly in a crash."
According to GM, a second-row seat-side trim piece is to blame, as it can impede the upward rotation of the buckle after the seat is folded flat. As a result, if the buckle makes contact with the seat frame, cosmetic damage can occur, potentially requiring additional force to operate the buckle properly. So far, no great shakes, but in the process of applying that additional force, the occupant may push the buckle cover down to the strap, potentially revealing and depressing the red release button. As a result of this, the belt may not latch, or in certain cases, it may actually appear to be latched when, in fact, it isn't.

Lutz dishes dirt on GM in latest Autoline Detroit

Bob Lutz sits down for Autoline Detroit - Click above to watch video after the jump
Autoline Detroit recently played host to Bob Lutz, and, as is always the case, the former General Motors vice chairman dished out some great commentary. Lutz was promoting his new book Car Guys vs. Bean Counters: The Battle for the Soul of American Business, and talk quickly turned to his role as it related to product development and high-level decision making at GM. While on the topic of brand management, Lutz revealed a few rather interesting tidbits about his former employer:
All Chevrolet vehicles were required to have five-spoke aluminum wheels and a chrome band up front, as part of the Bowtie brand's overall image.
