Teal-Colored Silverado HD For Under $10K Hides Awesome Powertrain
Americans love trucks. In fact, the bestseller in the United States of 2019 is a pickup truck, which was the outgoing Ford F-150. But if you’re in the used pickup market, there’s one right now on Craigslist, and it’s an interesting Chevy Silverado HD.
Listed as 2003 Chevy Silverado 2500HD Crew Cab, we found the listing on Craiglist for Wichita, Kansas. Now, based on the photos alone, you’ll immediately think that the color itself was the only thing special about this truck – and you’re not entirely wrong.
You see, underneath that big, teal-colored machine is a 6.0-liter V8 engine. If we want to follow the story of the Silverado, that engine is the Vortec 6000 6.0-liter V8, which produces 300 horsepower (224 kilowatts) and 360 pound-feet (488 Newton-meters) of torque. Not much, but remember this generation of Silverado HDs ranked 2nd in the list of the 10 most durable vehicles, so its durability wouldn’t be in dispute.
It is true that this truck for sale has driven 113,000 miles on the odometer. Better yet, this particular sample also comes with a five-speed manual transmission, sending power to the rear wheels exclusively. However, with all of this usable real estate, you’ll find enough stuff to haul if you ever go for this one.
Do you know which is the best part? This used 2003 Silverado HD is only listed for $ 8,995. The owner claims it is in good condition and the A / C works well, although the photos will show you natural cracks in the leather seats.
Beyond those flaws and the interesting color, this price makes this truck more appealing than it is supposed to. A basis for a new truck construction? Why not. I can already imagine it with a bigger set of wheels.
