1995 Chevy 6.5 TD 4x4 Silverado HD
Well, I just realized I am seriously hurting for money, so I am thinking about selling my truck if I can. Well, here it is:
1995 Chevy 2500HD Silverado
6.5 Turbo Diesel
Dark blue exterior no rust
Dark blue interior no stains
The paint is really shiny, with normal wear and tear on the body. Scratches here and there, but you have to be pretty close to notice them. 1 dent that I know of, on the driver door, and its the size of a dime
The interior is totally un-stained, but a slight hue may be present on the seats. Either way, it is extremely clean for a 11 year old truck.
The motor starts and runs perfect, and the trans shifts very well. Motor and trans are un-modified, and have been that way since new. No chips or anything going on here.
Factory CD/casette player but I recently (last week) had all the speakers replaced with pioneer speakers by Sounds In Motion
American Racing "Baja" style polished aluminum 16x8 wheels, with stainless steel center caps and chrome lugnuts with Kelly 265/75 tires mounted on them.
When i bought the truck, there was some surface rust on the bottom of the doors and cab, but I had that fixed by a professional body shop, and should be good to go for a number of years.
Things that do not work:
4 lo does not work. The truck shifts into 4 hi and works perfect there, and will shift into lo range, but the front tires do not pull in 4 lo. I have had 3 shops tell me its the same, common problem. Transfer case switch. Simple fix, just haven't needed 4 lo, so I have not had a need to fix .t
A/C does not work right now. New compressor needed. I normally don't use it anyways, so I did not mind
Passenger side mirror does not adjust left and right, but up and down work. It is in a good position right now, so again, I haven't had to fix it
Typical wear and tear for a truck of 11 years old. There are scratches on the paint, but the truck looks real good until you get within a few feet, and even then it still looks near flawless for a truck this old.
After the body shop did the rust repair, I put the "3M Rocker Panel Spray" over the new paint to protect against rock chips. This is now peeling off, but the paint underneath is still perfect. I was planning on durabaking the rocker panels, and I will include the gallon of black, smooth, UV protected durabak that I have for the project
That is all. Somewhat minor issues, all of which are relatively easy to fix. This truck is awesome. Tows fairly well, but could use more power (what can't, right?)
Gonna ask 7500 OBO. I have well over 8500 into it, and I bought it in June.
Located in Houghton, MI or Hudson, WI depending if I am home on holiday or not.
