For Sale: 1986 GMC 1500 in Concord, North Carolina

Vehicle Description

This 1986 GMC High Sierra 1500 is the long bed classic pickup with a cool vintage style and its numbers-matching V8. There's even likely a low mileage and low ownership history. So it's hard to resist a vintage truck like this, especially at this obtainable price.

The story that is going around on this one is that it was only previously owned by one family. While that cannot be confirmed, the CarFax does appear to support that the low odometer likely represents the full actual mileage. It's always great to have a classic truck that can pull real pickup duty, so we know you're just imagining how much more you can carry with the long bed. This is finished in its correct two-tone color. It's hard to deny the appeal of a red and tan to represent a 1980s machine so the fact that it was kept original-like adds to the nostalgia and personality that the image of this truck gives off. Mostly original paint, with pieces like the patina bed with dealer tag as indicators, helps to tell the story of where it came from and it's a prior life story. And the aged-in kind of style looks right on a truck that was an heirloom. A bright chrome front bumper, full-length premium trim, a diamond plate rear step bumper, and rally wheels finish off this attractive vintage package.

The interior has the feeling of a comfortable classic. The bench seat has a comfy cloth insert, shoulder seatbelts, a proper heater, and upgraded rugged floor mats done in red give it the right feeling in the fundamentals. Plus, there are some nice details of pickups of this era. This generation GMC has instruments that wrap around the driver almost like a sports car. And the sliding rear window gets the right old-school style breezes blowing through the cab.

Under the hood is the numbers-matching 305 cubic-inch V8 with a four-barrel carburetor on top. This one has a good look of clean originality, and it fires up and runs with the smoothness of a well-respected powerhouse. And it makes for a great all-around cruiser with a three-speed automatic transmission power steering, and power brakes with discs up front.

Complete with the owner's manual, we love a good classic pickup with history and character. That's why you know this affordable GMC is irresistible. Call now!
