1990 Chevrolet C/K 1500 Series Regular Cab C1500 Silverado 2dr Regular Cab SB


Review

I bought a 1990 half ton SB (99,000 original miles) with a rebuilt factory 350 (mild cam) and 3.73 gearing. I installed a power chip with 160 thermostat and also installed a K & N filter charger along with flowmaster exhaust plus a Corvette fluid servo in the tranny for lightning fast shifts and WOW! I've got a little hot rod on my hands! I must have hit the right combo cause this truck really screams now. Traction is a problem sometimes even with 29 X 12.50 street Hoosiers. Its always nice to pull up next to a new Mustang GT at the lights or one of those Hemi Dodges and proceed to let them examine my tailgate at a rapid rate. I have sunk 10 times more money in a truck before without this result


Best Features

Engine, reliability, looks, stance (lowered 2 inches). All the compliments about the truck's good looks. All factory options. Truck is at home in a show, on the street cruising, or hauling flowers and shrubs for my wife. #1 favorite feature is it's a Chevrolet.


Worst Features

Headliner, I wouldn't use 10 bolt rears, only 12 bolts. Other than that, it is a super beautiful truck.

1990 Chevrolet C/K 1500 Series Regular Cab C1500 Scottsdale 2dr Regular Cab LB


Review

I bought my copper brown Chevy Scottsdale about a year and a half ago. I think that GM put faulty trannys in 1989-92's because everyone I know with those years, including myself, have had to replace the transmisions. I have put a ton of money into this truck. It probably ran good when it was newer, but it was a bad investment for me, too much cost in new parts, and with gas prices, the V-8 isnt helping.


Best Features

The copper "penny" color of the truck. I've only seen it on a few trucks in the past. So it's easy to spot in a full parking lot.


Worst Features

Make more reliable parts. Also, I wish they kept the old bench style seats an option in the newer trucks. They're so much better than buckets.

Review

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.


Best Features

Solid feel of doors and body. A/C still powerful, radio not bad but did install C/D changer.


Worst Features

Wish it were extended cab.

Review

When chevy says they build a truck like
a rock they mean it! I've had this
truck for 14 years and it has NEVER
broke down....ever! Plenty of power
provided by the 350 and great traction
w/ the 3:73 gears in the back. Great
all around truck.


Best Features

Reliability......this truck has never given me a prob. I have never babied this truck, just kept up w/ the maintenence and it always been there for me.


Worst Features

Have both the low beams and high beams on at the same time for better visibilty. Prob as solved w/ aftermarket K/C daylighters.

Review

I just got my 1993 1500 in June. these
trucks look their best either jacked up
or slammed. i went for the slammed
look. i got the truck 5 inches off the
ground, aluminum rims, roll pan front
bumper cover kit, 5-speed trans., which
i just hooked up a 350ci to. over the
summer i had the 4.3L V6, which did not
have enough cahonies. i got the 350ci
out of an 1989 2500. this engine was
scary in the 2500, i can't wait to see
how it performs in my truck. Just
wanted to brage and say that these
trucks are excellent street machines
that can do the heavy work. Chevy
trucks RULE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!


Best Features

the look, the simplicity, the power, and especially the POWER!!!


Worst Features

Need even more power. Want more power. Can use more power. Can't get enough power. Also stronger transmissions.
