1990 Chevrolet SS 454 C1500 Pickup

Motorcar Studio is pleased to offer this 1990 Chevrolet C1500 454 SS pickup truck with only 20,000 original miles. Ordered by Larry Kopp, a national drag racing champion and lifelong Chevy enthusiast who appeared in some Chevrolet ads in the late 1990s. Kopp owned and operated Ted's Towing Service, his family business in Baltimore, while racing cars as a hobby. He won the 1976 NHRA Modified Eliminator Championship and after turning pro in 1998 he won the Pro Stock Truck title that same year.

For the first two years of production, the SS 454 pickup was only offered in black -- but Kopp wanted a red one, so immediately after delivery he had the truck professionally repainted in garnet red metallic. The family gave it to his chief mechanic after Kopp's untimely death in 2004 from pancreatic cancer. The son of the current owner, who is active in Corvette racing, acquired it in a private sale from Kopp's mechanic in 2018. This truck is offered for sale publicly for the first time since it was ordered.

The 454 SS, produced in limited numbers, was the best-performing full-size truck of its era. All of them had the top-of-the line Silverado trim package and featured bucket seats with a center console, a stiffer suspension and sway bars for better handling, and of course a fuel-injected big block 454 cubic inch V8 under the hood.

Condition inside and out is everything you would expect for a 20,000-mile example -- it's like new. Bone stock and unmolested aside from the color-change repaint done when it was delivered (which still shows to a better-than-factory standard). A copy of the original order form, a letter from Chevrolet to Larry Kopp with a commemorative custom window sticker, and the factory books and cassette are included with the sale. A/C has been converted to R134a and is blowing cold.
