This Chevy Silverado Limo Seems Too Good To Be True
It has seven doors and enough space inside to conduct a round-table conferenceby Sidd Dhimaan, on LISTEN 03:17
I’m quite sure that the majority of the people find pickup trucks to be rather spacious and few will complain about them being congested or stuffed or anything like that. But, this particular truck owner wanted something larger than life and the end result seems too good to be true.
The point in case here is a Chevrolet Silverado 3500 Dually that has been turned into a seven-door limo that can perhaps accommodate all of Colorado! The truck features a lot of other changes, and is now up for sale. Off-topic, but is there a way to know if this stretched Silverado is visible from the moon?
What’s All The Fuss About?
This 2002 Chevy Silverado 3500 Dually is stretched out like elastic and is equipped with a few extra doors.
In total, the truck has six standard doors and one suicide door.
The job was undertaken by Paint by Krusty in LaSalle, Colorado, who also did the paint job for this beast. The add-ons (quite literally) are approximately three-four years old. A front stainless steel clip conversion was also done along with the addition of a cowl hood. B&W gooseneck hitch, Eagle wheels, and new rubber are some of the other changes seen here.
There are three rows inside the cabin which include four captain chairs in the first two rows and a bench seat for the final row, all of them wrapped in Carhartt seat covers. For entertainment needs, the truck is equipped with two new 17.3-inch overhead DVD players. Weathertech floor mats and remote start are the other things you’ll be getting with this truck.
What Powers The Stretched Silverado?
Under the hood is a 6.6-liter, V-8 Duramax engine that, in the stock form, makes 235 horses and 500 pound-feet of torque.
It includes a rebuilt short block that has clocked around 25,000 miles. Power is sent to all the wheels through a six-speed transmission to handle the mods. Further changes include:
- A polished crankshaft with ATI super damper
- Dual CP3 fuel pumps with a FASS lift pump
- Profab cast manifolds with stainless steel pipes
- New set of LDS injectors
- Compound turbos, over-sized aluminum radiator
- New coolant hoses, MA welded-water pump
- PPE intercooler
- Setrab remote oil cooler with thermostatically controlled fan
When you play around with the build this much, even the suspension system needs to be upgraded accordingly.
The stock height of the truck was dropped by three inches and all components involving were replaced, such as new control arms, ball joints, bushings, new tie rods, etc. At the time of this major work, the owner also decided to replace all flexible brake lines with coated stainless lines. New Bilstein shocks can also be found here. The owner further states that an auto-adjust leveling airbag system with compressor and billet distribution manifold was also installed.
The truck is available for sale in Kiowa, Colorado.
The owner is asking $32,000 for this truck.
Seeing the number of changes made to it, the price seems fair enough. But, do note that this is a 2002 model, and servicing the truck won’t be as straightforward as a stock model.
