1989 Chevrolet Silverado C 1500 Ext. Cab Long Bed 5.7 liter from North America
A great truck
Replaced transmission at 295,012 miles.
Replaced seats at 208,670 miles.
Replaced body bolts at 300,009 miles. (body bolts hold truck to frame)
Replaced all gaskets around 400,000 miles.
Replaced driver and passenger side window motors.
Replaced all windows at 215,421 miles.
Replaced rear axle at 208,468 miles.
All in all this truck has been a great one. Everything I replaced Had diteriorated from being used so much and being so untaken care of by the previous owner.
This truck however is powerful, fast, and quick. And I wouldn't trade it for anything.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes

I have the same truck, I have 385,000 KM's on it and feel the same way as this guy about his. I would not trade this truck for anything.
I buy a new car every 2 years for my wife, but have had my truck now for 9 years.
I have done a good chunk of work to it, but being as old as it is, and all the KM's on it, I am fine with my investment.

I have had three trucks of this body style. I have always been a Chevy guy and this truck is the reason why. My current truck is also the oldest being 90. It has 140k on it and runs like it was new. It even outperforms my father in law's newer GMC Sierra. It's fast, has more power than I would ever need, and runs great, even though it's 2 decades old. It's been well maintained and I've had no mechanical problems at all. I will keep this truck until there's nothing left of it, and it'll probably be my son's first vehicle.

I have owned my 1989 ext cab long bed for 22 years.
Second owner. Now has 403,000 miles.
AMAZING TRUCK. I work this truck every week, drive it every single day as a contractor. Reach through the driver's window, turn the key and it fires right up, every time. Gonna see 500,000 miles soon and it will still be priceless to me.
