Autotrader Find: 1997 Chevy Silverado 3500 From SEMA

SEMA, the famous trade show in Las Vegas where a bunch of different aftermarket suppliers get together and display their various wares, is currently in fully swing. As a result, I figured it would only be appropriate to feature a former SEMA vehicle as my latest Autotrader Find.

That vehicle is this 1997 Chevrolet Silverado 3500, which is beige with a brown leather interior. One glance and you can easily see why it’s a former SEMA vehicle, as it has massive wheels and air ride suspension that allows it to lower and raise. It’s highly head turning, especially since most car customizers opt for newer trucks, so it’s rare to see an older one like this getting the SEMA treatment.

On the inside, the interior has been transformed from General Motors working-grade cloth to a nice, rich brown leather, with an odd custom steering wheel. The truck also features a 7.4-liter V8 and a custom color-matched bed and engine compartment that’s designed to replicate the look of the interior.

If you’re looking for a particularly head turning former SEMA build, this one can be yours, as it’s offered with 132,006 miles by Carolina Auto Direct in Mooresville, North Carolina, near Charlotte, for $27,988. The only issue I see is an unusual lack of brake lights — something it appears the builder may have fixed with some tiny aftermarket add-ons, which I suspect won’t pass safety inspection in some states they have such inspections.
