For Sale: 1979 GMC Sierra in Kentwood, Michigan


Vehicle Description

"The 1970s declared to the automotive world that trucks aren't just for work anymore. Custom trucks were red hot in the Me Decade, and pickups, vans, and four-wheel-drive vehicles were modified with great gusto by mustached enthusiasts who added wider wheels and tires, side pipes, and splashy paint jobs. Oh, and don't forget the mandatory CB-radio whip antenna. The custom-truck scene blossomed into a lifestyle on the West Coast, with trucks of all types used to haul cool toys to the local beaches and deserts. It didn't take long for automakers to catch the vibe. Chevy, Dodge, Ford, GMC, International Harvester, and Jeep all churned out special editions." - Car and Driver Magazine.

The 1975 GMC Sierra Classic 1500 offered here is drenched in that 70's vibe and is downright just plain cool. We recently acquired this from a collector in Arizona who took excellent care of the truck and went to great lengths to preserve its originality. The truck was originally from California, so it is no surprise that this truck is rock solid. All within the last 8 months or so the truck has had the following work done: Soft Ride 4 inch suspension lift, powder coat stock wheels with BFG 35x12.5 tires, steering stabilizer shock, upper and lower - left and right ball joints, front brakes, front differential bearings, axle shafts, weatherstrip kit, chrome front bumper, headliner, spark plugs and wires. The truck has a freshly recovered bench seat along with new carpet as well. Other highlights include headers, power brakes, power steering, Warn manual locking hubs, KC lights that work with the flip of a switch on the dash, brush guard. The truck comes with receipts that reflect this work totaling over $16,000.

The exterior appears to be highly original and is very straight and very solid. The doors snap shut like a vault door with no sagging. The graphics, trim and paint all complement each other exceptionally well. This is an excellent example of a very original/stock truck that has been finessed into very attractive and mechanically sound must have Collector grade pickup.
