|THIS TRUCK MIGHT BE THE HOLY GRAIL FOR THE FOURTH GENERATION C SERIES TRUCK ENTHUSIASTS. 1988 WAS A BANNER YEAR FOR THE CHEVROLET TRUCK DIVISION. THE DESIGN DEPARTMENT HAD BEEN WORKING FOR FOUR YEARS ON A RADICAL NEW STYLE, TRANSFORMING THE SQUARE LOOK INTO A SLEEK NEW BEAUTY WITH ROUNDED EDGES. CHEVROLET UNDERSTOOD THAT SINCE 1967, THE PICKUP TRUCK WAS GRADUALLY BECOMING AMERICA'S EVERY DAY MODE OF TRANSPORTATION. MORE AND MORE CONSUMERS WERE TRADING OFF THEIR CARS AND BUYING PICK UP TRUCKS, AND THEY RESPONDED WITH A WORK OF ART ON FOUR WHEELS. THIS IS A 1988 CHEVROLET C1500 FLEETSIDE MILD CUSTOM SHOW TRUCK. THIS TRUCK WAS RESTORED A FEW YEARS BACK, BUT VERY LITTLE MILEAGE HAS BEEN LOGGED SINCE THE RESTORATION. THE TRUCK IS IN EXCELLENT CONDITION. THIS TRUCK IS PRICED TO SELL, AND IT WON'T LAST LONG. YOU WON'T FIND ANOTHER AT THIS PRICE.
