Vehicle Description

Here’s a handsome mild custom 1981 GMC Caballero Diablo now available from the MaxMotive Pittsburgh Showroom. Starting with a clean Texas truck, the owner completed a thorough restoration/build in 2012. Tasteful custom details are found throughout the vehicle starting with shaved door handles with electric openers, a narrowed and recessed front bumper and custom grille for a super clean look, shaved tailgate and tail lights, and a custom steel roll pan. 2-inch dropped spindles provide the desired stance. It’s all covered in a beautiful application of year 2000 GM Bright Silver Metallic paint. A full custom interior features beautiful black leather seats and black carpeting, with body-color dash and center console. The custom dash has a full set of TPI-tech whiteface gauges. It’s well equipped for comfort with air conditioning, power windows, cruise control, and tilt steering column. A Sony stereo unit is mounted in the center stack and you’ll also find hidden controls for delay wipers. There’s plenty of go to accompany the show. Under the hood is a 1994 5.7L Z28 LT1 fuel injected V8 engine with performance cam, cold air intake, and ceramic coated Hedman Hedders. The exhaust is routed through
2½ stainless steel pipes to Flowmaster mufflers for a powerful tone. A 1994 Z28 4L60E automatic transmits the torque to the original 3.73 rear. Build receipts and restoration photos are included plus a high quality car cover. Please be sure to see the detailed photos at www.maxmotive.com.

*MAXmotive specializes in collectible classic and custom vehicles. We have more than 200 vehicles in our collection and have sold dozens nationwide and even overseas. We recommend that all buyers who are unable to view a vehicle in person have a pre-purchase inspection done prior to purchase. Inspections can be performed by an independent party selected by the buyer. Due to the age and uniqueness of these special vehicles, it is difficult to cover all aspects and characteristics of each vehicle’s condition within the limited space available. Thus, pre-purchase inspections are helpful to all parties involved. The information provided for this vehicle is presented to the best of our knowledge, and is deemed reliable. But MAXmotive does not warrant or guarantee this information as a basis for purchase. It is the responsibility of the buyer to make a thorough inspection to determine the suitability of the vehicle prior to purchase.
