Truck Thursday: 1985 Chevrolet Silverado Fleetside Diesel

Photo-7.3.2016-17.41.58 For today’s Truck Thursday contribution from up here in the slushy north, I bring you this 1985 Chevrolet C/K. It’s a Silverado specification with the 6.2-litre Detroit Diesel, so certainly worthy. All of the chrome on it looks so good, even if it stands out well enough by itself. Photo-7.3.2016-17.42.10 The 1985-1987 edition of the big diesel V8 churned out 148 hp and 246 lb ft of torque, or 334 Nm in metric. Photo-7.3.2016-17.41.52 In my mind, the white bed cover is a perfect match to the navy blue paint. The truck looks just right as it is.
