This 1992 Chevy Silverado 3500 454 4X4 is kind of rare with a ton of awesomeness baked in.
Finding a decent 1992 Chevy Silverado 3500 454 4X4 was a challenge for our friend David. He was looking for a successor for “Gunsmoke”, our Ford F-350 project that was sold on to charity. You can read about it (here). This old Silverado is rough, with over 142,000 miles on it. Fortunately, it has a rare powertrain combination, and David sees a lot of potential!
It cost David $2,500. Keep in mind: David has been on the lookout for one of these for several months. He has a thing for early 90’s Chevrolet trucks. Hell, even his therapist has made a few bold statements about his truck addiction. Still, we’re not complaining.
Actually, Kase may grouse a bit as he’s a Ram/Dodge man. He “loves him some Cummins diesel.” I think that’s how he’d say it.
This project truck is a 1992 Chevy Silverado 3500 packing a beefy big block 454 cid V8. It comes with the sought-after NV4500 5-speed manual transmission. It’s a 4X4 regular cab and the former owner originally intended it to become a snow-plow truck. Before that, it spent its life on a ranch – living a hard-working existence.
David is excited about the truck as he’s had a ton of experience with these Chevrolets. While the guys drove it back to the Happy Yak Ranch, David noticed some smells and a loss of power. There are a few things that are needed right off the bat. David will replace the battery, drain the gas tank, fix the driver’s door, update the interior and add some tires. Oh, and there will be a serious engine service too.
In the future, we will be working with David and Kase to build this truck and make it something special. We need to ask YOU, the readers and viewers, something important: what should we name this project? Please let us know in the comments below! We will chose five names and run a poll on TFLtruck’s Youtube community page to get the final name.
