Wow, this one hot looking shortbed!

Wow, this one hot looking shortbed! The greatness doesn't stop there, its loaded too. The Highlander was a limited edition that even most truck aficionados are not aware of. Basically it was a deluxe package of options and upper scale trim.
This truck has it's original option sticker on the glovebox door.

EXTERIOR: It is an eye catcher, the bright orange and white two tone with all the deluxe trim. Also has brand new 20 inch chrome wheels with performance tires. It was sold new in Nashville, we bought it out of North Carolina. It is a good clean southern body. The paint job is new this year, has a very glossy, straight finish. All of the trim has been replaced. In front the grill, chrome bumper and emblems are new. The moldings down the sides, antenna, wiper arms, mirrors, handles are new. In back it has new chrome bumper, taillight and tailgate trim. Inside the bed is not beat up at all. It's real clean and straight metal, they must have used it for hauling pillows! It's painted glossy orange. New windshield and vent window glass. All new rubber gaskets and weatherstrips. Door jambs are slick, new shiny sill plates.

INTERIOR: Completely restored inside. Has the same two tone as the outside. The metal has been painted glossy orange. Very cool looking vintage orange plaid seat inserts. The restorer said he paid a lot for that. New upholstery, door panels, armrests, handles, window cranks, visors, carpet, dash pad etc. Dash area looks great. New chrome instrument bezel, new heater control unit, new chrome a/c vents. It has a factory tilt column with new deluxe wheel. Inside the glovebox has new liner and original option sticker.

ENGINE COMPARTMENT: The motor is a 396-350 hp from a 68 Chevelle SS. It was apart and gone through less then 100 miles ago. I open the hood and was immediately impressed, show quality. Very freshly restored. The inner fenders, core support and bottom of the hood are perfectly smooth clean metal painted satin black. The jambs and firewall are painted gloss orange. All the components look new. The air conditioning system has a lot new parts and is upgraded to R134a freon. The alternator and new fuel pump is new. Has a new upgraded aluminum intake and Holley carb. Dressed up with new stock chrome air cleaner and valve covers. Radiator, fan, shroud and hoses look new. It features power steering and brakes.

UNDERSIDE: The underside is very clean and solid. I dont see any patches. It's been cleaned and painted. The front end was just completely rebuilt. Bottom of the motor still looks fresh, has new motor mounts. The Turbo 400 automatic was just completely rebuilt. A set of headers feed a new dual Flowmaster exhaust system with stainless tips. There are new shocks all around, new rear springs. New panhard bar. It has also been upgraded with new disc brakes at all four wheels.

This is a head turner. Has the desirable features people want in a truck- shortbed, deluxe trim, a/c, power steering and brakes. Having a big block and great colors certainly makes it even better!

I, Jay Grams, take pride in personally writing the descriptions for virtually every car for about the last 30 years now. A significant amount of effort goes into fact checking. What I am offering is my professional impression of the vehicle.
Our salesmen are happy to assist with descriptions and making sure your questions are answered. One great suggestion is letting us do a walk around video that explains the car's condition in detail.
