1983 Chevrolet Silverado silverado 6.2 diesel from North America
Would kill to have it back
My cousin gave me this pickup when for my 16th birthday. It was a baby blue long box 2x4 with some external rust, but nothing real bad. The only problem I have ever had was this one wire that broke that was the ignition wire. The other thing wrong was the 1 ton spring he put on the back. they were nice for pulling trailer, but not when your going on the interstate.
I loved that truck so much. It would burnout, pull, go mudding very well for a two wheel drive, and I never had a problem with it. the only part I replaced was the air filter, I put a K&N air filter in it and it had a lot more power after that. I sold the truck for a chevy s10 with a 4.3 which blew up 2 days later due to the past owner never changing oil. I wish I would have never sold that truck. now it is in a junkyard in Doon, Iowa. I'm working on buying whats left of it back and doing a mild restoration to it.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
