Powerful, Stylish, And Conveinent — The versatile vehicle I have ever owned. Whether I was hauling work gear to jobsites, or riding around town, this truck was a pleasure to drive. This is a sure American Classic Truck that is worth keeping around as long as possible.

Great truck, comfortable, rugged, reliable year after year.

Getting old is the only thing wrong with this old truck

A Real Chevy — I love my old Chevy and would buy another in an instant if they still made them like this one. She's approaching 2 decades of daily driving, kid transporting, commuting, towing, hauling, and upstate NY winters! Only thing I would change on it is making it a diesel! What a truck!

Fun And Drives Like A Dream, Full Size Pick Up And Gets Over 20 Mpg!! — I wish it had power windows and locks but that is just me being lazy and having to lean over and unlock the door every so often again not the trucks fault and not a reason not to pick one of these up if you need a long bed to haul atv, motorcycle or anything

Awesome Built Truck — Chevrolet trucks are well built trucks that are sometimes hard to get the right truck due to they sell as quick as they are put on a lot. Power is great for the 5.7 350 V-8 have always liked them.

Chevrolet 400ss — Really nice ride, fast, excellent handling. Love the exterior appearance and the looks inside are amazing. The gas mileage is really low, but that's what you get when you have a 5.7L v8 under the hood. And it's really fun to drive.

It Is A Perfect Work Truck — Its nice truck it handles very good, it is comfortable ride. Performance wise it has a very big 350 motor. It cost me almost 5000 thousand but its worth it. It is very fun to have and drive. The truck is mostly being used for and towing and hauling things around in and it does its job there, but it also will be used for plowing snow and i am hoping it will do its job there.
