Mine is a 1990 Silverado, 350 with the 700R4 in the K1500 4x4. Bought it 3 years ago with only 96k miles on it. Only problems have been a bad starter and I need to replace the rear leaf springs as they are shot. However the previous owners towed a camper with it and thats it, so I would say thats the root of the spring issue. I also upgraded the radiator to a 3-core as I felt the single core was just too small and it was not up to the task of towing on 95 degree days. It is comfortable, drives well, pulls well and has been one of my favorites. I am actually going to purchase another 1990 in a C1500 2wd with a 350 and 5spd so I can save the first from junk miles back and forth to work.

I bought this truck about a year ago
with 67xxx miles on it, a little one
owner always kept inside only driven
short trips. Given that I was worred
when I started putting more miles
driving to work every day parts would
fail...20000 miles later have only had
to replace the driver side power window
motor and the battery. The engine uses
a quart of oil every 3000 miles but no
leaks on floor. I get 16mpg average
driving with the 350cid motor. I have
had a number of GM and Ford trucks but
I think this is the best of the lot.
