WHITE 1993 434 SS

Street Trucks - - BIG BLOCK ADDICT -

The third and fi­nal 454 SS truck in Sriyan­tha’s sta­ble is a 1993 white 454 SS which is one of 88 pro­duced by GM in white.

Ul­tra-rare, it is the most mildly mod­i­fied of the bunch. Pur­chased from the orig­i­nal owner in Au­gust of 2015 the truck had 12,000 orig­i­nal miles on it when Sriyan­tha brought it home.

The first or­der of busi­ness was to ad­just the stance. Grif­fith Metal Shap­ing in Austin in­stalled Bell­tech dropped spin­dles and springs, and QA1 coil overs to en­hance the stance and han­dling. The rear frame rails were C-sec­tioned by GMS and a flip kit in­stalled to get the trucks back­side down to the proper al­ti­tude. All said and done, the truck plum­meted 5 inches up front and 7 inches out back, barely hov­er­ing over the 20x8-inch front and 20x10-inch rear Amer­i­can Rac­ing Torque Thrust II wheels mounted on P245/40ZR20 front and P295/40ZR20 rear Yoko­hama rub­ber.

For power good­ies Sriyan­tha in­stalled a Whip­ple su­per­charger push­ing 8 pounds of boost com­pli­mented by Head­man shorty head­ers feed­ing dual flow­mas­ter muf­flers. The fac­tory 4l80-e trans­mis­sion and GM 14-bolt rear end han­dle throt­tle and gear com­mands when Sriyan­tha takes this fac­tory-fast 454 out to stretch its legs. A cus­tom au­dio sys­tem fea­tur­ing Alpine and MB Quartz com­po­nents pushes beats through the cab for those im­promptu cruises or high­way throt­tle blasts.

SRIYAN­THA’S WHITE 454 SS IS A 1993 AND ONE OF ONLY 88 PRO­DUCED BY GM. THIS UL­TRA-RARE MODEL ALSO HAP­PENS TO BE THE MOST MILDLY MOD­I­FIED OF THE BUNCH. WHEN PUR­CHASED FROM THE ORIG­I­NAL OWNER IN AU­GUST OF 2015, THE TRUCK ONLY HAD 12,000 ORIG­I­NAL MILES ON IT

ABOVE. THE FAC­TORY 454 CU­BIC INCH ENGINE HAS BEEN UP­GRADED WITH A WHIP­PLE SU­PER­CHARGER PUSH­ING 8 POUNDS OF BOOST.LEFT. THE ICONIC FRONT CLIP ON THIS 88-98 CHEVRO­LET GAVE IT BOTH A PER­FOR­MANCE IN­SPIRED LOOK WHILE ALSO MAIN­TAIN­ING DE­PEND­ABLE FUNC­TION­AL­ITY OVER HUN­DREDS OF THOU­SANDS OF MILES.
