    I picked up this '87 and am planning to build it for the 2020 Hot Rod Power Tour. My buddy Nate ran his '84 last year in the Long Haul and had a blast. Looking to tune-up the weather stripping, seats, gauges and so forth and also install a UMI 4.5/6 kit and some new wheels.

    Cool, looks like my 87 R10 Silverado.
    Don't see that paint very often, is it original, what's the code?

    Hey Rory. The base seems original but the ghost flames of course aren't. I'm not much of a paint knowledge guy. Is the paint code on the sticker or do I need to look somewhere else?

    The frame and most of the body are in pretty good condition for a Pennsylvania truck. It runs and drives great in general.

    That's it, 67 same paint code as mine. Only used a couple of years on these truck.
    Right, no flames from the factory.

    There are a few different ones in my area but I typically just build and drive my cars.
    My son's sports take the rest of my free time.
    I'll go to one eventually.

    TH350 in an '87....I wonder how many pickups that year came with that tranny? Every '87 I have ever seen had either a 700R4 or a SM465 manual.
