1991 Chevrolet Silverado 2500 5.7 from North America
Number one of 20+ vehicles I have ever owned
As is typical with the paint from this period, it is peeling and chipping.
Some of the dash pieces are beginning to break down, the dash is cracking and glove box has broken, it is almost 20 years old. My dad has a 90, and he has some of the same issues.
The previous owner had the transmission rebuilt around 95K, and from what I have read, that is typical.
I scored with this truck. It is in great shape and I purchased it with very low miles. I have had no issues with it mechanically.
I have used it for some mild hauling up to 3k lbs, and have loaded the back with about 2k lbs, which it managed without difficulty. It is a real truck that serves its purpose well. It hauls the family, my stuff and me without issue.
I plan on keeping this truck forever. From all that I read on this site, I am going to keep it maintained and running for as long as I can. When something gives out, I will replace it. It is a lot cheaper than a new vehicle, and can be completely rebuilt for less than a cheap new car.
I highly recommend this model and year for anybody.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Don't Know
