Pickup trucks have been hot in the collector market for quite some time, and while those from the ‘40s to the ‘60s are popular, the “square body” trucks of the ‘70s, ‘80s and ‘90s are red hot now as well. The newer ones in that range offer the best of both worlds: the traditional boxy styling that just looks so right on a pickup truck along with much nicer interiors than their more utilitarian forebears. Here we have a 1998 Chevrolet C1500 in the rare, eye-catching “Stepside” body style. Having been a Florida truck for nearly its whole life, it’s pristine underneath as well as topside. Wearing a beautiful, very high-quality respray in its factory correct dark green hue, even this Stepside’s bed is so clean and minty fresh you could eat off of it. The curbside appeal is further pumped up via a six-inch lowered stance along with a set of Vossen 22-inch, 10-spoke wheels wearing high-performance rubber. A custom wire mesh grille as well as color-matched bumpers and valance panel complete the mild custom look. Plush tan cloth upholstery highlights the interior, where a 60/40 split bench seat with a center fold-down armrest adds to the luxury truck vibe. The headliner, seats and carpet are all in very good condition, while the dash has a few cracks underneath the cover. A Budnik leather-wrapped billet steering wheel, billet shifter and billet rearview mirror give the interior a bit more personality than stock. Plenty of options were checked when this truck was ordered, as A/C, power windows/mirrors, tilt wheel and cruise control provide all the comforts of a luxury car. An aftermarket Kenwood AM/FM/CD audio system with Bluetooth and satellite radio capabilities provides the tunes. A rearview camera makes parking a breeze. Under the hood is a full 350 cubic inches (5.7-liters) of brawny “Vortec” V8 that routes the power to the rear wheels via a four-speed automatic. Although there’s about 126k miles on the truck, the engine was rebuilt at around the 80k mark. An “Airaid” free-flow intake/air filter and a Flowmaster exhaust system with side-exit outlets allows the 350 to breathe easy and make a bit more power. It sounds powerful without being obnoxiously loud. Step into it and you’ll quickly find out that there’s plenty of power here for quick acceleration and strong passing/merging power.
