Here's one of the most unusual cars I've discovered on Autotrader Find. It's a 1993 Chevy Silverado 3500, which is not at all weird, except that it's only driven 5,700 miles since it was sold new 25 years ago. That's very, very weird.

The main reason it's unusual is that most people buy heavy-duty pickups like this Silverado to tow big items long distances -- and, in fact, these trucks are designed for it. Whenever I do a feature on the "highest mileage" vehicles of some variety listed for sale on Autotrader, heavy-duty trucks are always the highest-mileage vehicles that come up for sale. And yet, here's a 25-year-old heavy-duty truck that's been perfectly preserved.

So, how does this happen? Interestingly, the ad doesn't really mention the shockingly low miles, but instead just lists the features and equipment the truck was sold with. But the interior photos clearly show a vehicle that's barely been driven, with virtually no wear anywhere -- on the seats, the dashboard or any other piece.

According to the Carfax report, this truck was sold new in North Carolina in 1993, and had accumulated only 4,000 miles by the time it came to the second owner in Florida in 2013. A few other owners in Florida have had it since then, adding just 1,700 miles to bring it to 5,700 -- and now it's likely one of the best-preserved heavy-duty pickups on earth. It's offered by The Used Car Factory in Denver, North Carolina, near Charlotte, for $24,900.
