“The Sweet Spot of Pickup Trucks” -DrivingLine website, July 2020

DrivingLine went on to outline some of their thinking: “The '88-'98 Chevy truck along with its GMC twin represent a perfect blend of the classic and the modern. From its just-right size to its subtle styling, the GMT400 trucks have earned a lot of fans over the decades. One of the things that makes these trucks special is that they arrived at a time when the pickup began its rise to the top of the American-vehicle market. If you grew up in the United States (or Canada) during (those years), it's highly likely you knew someone who had a Chevy or GMC pickup. They were everywhere—and their simple styling has stood the test of time.”

And the website writers added: “Let's not forget those memorable TV ads with Bob Seger's 'Like a Rock' playing over various scenes of people working and playing with their Chevys.”

Offered here is a highly original 1996 Chevy K 1500, four-wheel-drive, short-bed, Stepside® pickup in white over burgundy. The pickup's odometer currently reads 108,686 miles or fewer than 4,400 miles per-year on average since new. Its two long-term (non-smoker) owners respected the K1500 and maintained it properly as its excellent current condition demonstrates.

The truck's body is free of damage; there are no dents or dings. The paint retains excellent gloss across all body panels. Finishes on the body-color-painted grille and matching front and rear bumpers are excellent overall with a few minor scrapes, most notably on the right side of the rear bumper. (To best assess the quality of the paint and trim finishes, please be sure to view the close-up photographs of the car in the accompanying gallery.) Black rubber protective panels on the cargo bed's (and rear bumper's) “steps” are all in place and well-kept. The cargo bed itself features both a rigid-fabric cover and a black liner. The bed and cargo-area walls show evidence of use but no real damage. Badging is limited to the single gold bowtie front-grille emblem. Body-color-painted mirror caps are damage free, and side windows feature drip-rail extensions. Tinted cabin glass and lighting lenses front and rear are clear and free of cracks. Factory, 5-angled-spoke, 16-inch alloy wheels are free of curb rash. Cooper® Discovery H/T 265/75 outline-white-letter tires are mounted.

The truck's interior is very clean and well-kept. The burgundy color theme is easy on the eye. Herringbone-patterned, stock cloth upholstery covers the bench seat (with center armrest). The fabric has been well-maintained with very little sign of wear (mostly on the driver's outside seat bolster and cushion due to driver entry and exit). In the same way, the cabin's burgundy carpeting retains near-showroom condition, at least in part due to protective rubber floor liners. Soft and hard door-panel trim is similarly well-maintained and free of wear. A 4-spoke, black steering wheel includes an airbag and Chevrolet branding. It frames the driver-focused complete instrument cluster (set in black on the burgundy dashboard) including tachometer and full spectrum of analog gauges as seen on high-spec Chevy trucks. The stock audio system also remains mounted. Other options include power windows, door locks, and air conditioning. The automatic transmission shifter is column-mounted, while the 4-wheel drive transfer-case's push-button controls are located on the dash to the immediate right of the steering column.

Under the hood, the optional and legendary 5.7-liter Chevrolet V8 is complete and unmodified. The engine bay is very clean and well-ordered. Viewed from below, the truck's chassis is straight and free of damage.

The truck's original identification and build stickers remain in place.

While the more than 135 high-definition photographs and the short walk-around-and-startup video available on the GarageKeptMotors website showcase this Chevy K 1500 in detail from every angle, including from below, we expect and encourage in-person inspections at our Grand Rapids, Michigan showroom. Please call to arrange an appointment in advance as our showroom is not open to the public. And feel free to get in touch anytime by phone or email if you have questions.

DrivingLine ended their review with: “... as more vehicles from the late '80s and '90s continue to be considered legitimate classics, it's only a matter of time before the massively popular GM pickups of the era take their rightful place next to the classic trucks of earlier decades.”

That “matter of time” has arrived for the next owner of this modern-day classic.
