For more information on this vehicle visit http://tinyurl.com/bqqd2k3 While other automakers had toyed with the idea, It was the GM camp who first introduced a proper sport truck with their potent 454 SS models based on the venerable GMT400 platform. With big block power and sportier suspensions, these pickups traded towing capacity for time slips and opened a lot of enthusiasts' minds in the process. Placing the classic pickup under a different light made room for the creation of trucks like this fire-breathing 1991 454 SS. Starting with one of the best looking full size Chevy trucks to roll off the assembly line in years, designers stripped the truck to its bare essentials -- no chrome, no extraneous trim. Like most of these pickups, this one no longer retains its stock paint but the coat of black sprayed across the exterior of this pickup is far deeper and far richer than any black ever shot in a General Motors plant. Helping that black paint pop is the immaculate body underneath which is free of any discernible flaws. While the truck still has its factory fascia and rub strips along the side, a few pieces have been added for some extra visual appeal. At the front, a fiberglass cowl hood harkens back to the muscle car era while tradition pin stripe adds some awesome detail. A custom red and gray stripe leads the eye to the 454 SS badge at the rear of the bed while an aftermarket roll pan replaces the unsightly stock rear bumper. While the 454 SS had a healthy powerplant to begin with, this truck takes that idea to the next level. Pop the fiberglass cowl hood and you'll find a completely rebuilt 454 V8 churning out an estimated 650 horsepower with its current tune. Built by the team at Terry Walters Precision Engines in Roanoke, Virginia the motor features fresh internals and an intercooled ProCharger system. Breathing through Edelbrock headers and Flowmaster mufflers, the truck has one hell of a bark that will let everyone in the area know something serious lives under the hood. Directly behind the 454, a Bowtie Overdrives heavy duty 4L80E four-speed automatic transmission takes care of gear selection. The driveshaft remains a stock piece as does the massive 14-bolt differential packed with 4.11 gears. The truck has been lowered roughly three inches and features a two-link with coilovers to keep the rear end planted. Quick ratio steering was part of the SS package as were the power front disc brakes. To play up the hot rod theme, a set of polished 15-inch Halibrand five-spoke wheels were ordered and wrapped in BF Goodrich rubber in sizes 245/60 up front and 275/60 out back. Between the doors, the impressively clean Garnet Red interior remains almost completely original. The high-back bucket seats are in excellent shape and the dash remains as it left the factory. The only notable addition is a pair of Autometer gauges that monitor Boost and oil pressure from their place on the driver's side A-pillar. The best part about this truck is that it isn't some outlandish custom that can't be driven. The truck fires up and functions just like the stock piece -- it just has A LOT more power. With great looks and a special place in GM history, this 1991 454 SS is a great truck to drive, enjoy and hold onto. If you always wanted a little more from the 454 SS trucks, don't miss the opportunity to snatch this one and get a whole lot more bang for the buck.
