This 1998 GMC 1500 is at the right crossroads. It's a premium
pickup that comes loaded from the factory with the best features
like a fuel-injected V8, an A/C interior, an overdrive
transmission, and more. But it's also about to be considered a full
classic as it crosses the quarter-century threshold. And so when
you can find something that's vintage while still getting modern
features - and it's all offered for a value price - then you know
you're looking at something special.
We love this generation GMC for introducing a more streamlined face
and body. These sleeker lines really look terrific on a single cab
and short bed setup. It makes for a very sporty appearance -
especially with the polished dual exhaust tips and aerodynamic hard
tonneau. But there's a premium feeling here, too. Pewter metallic
paint is a timeless color, and the black lower section makes for an
upper-class upgrade. Plus, the pinstripe, chin spoiler, bug guard,
and window vent all thoughtfully coordinate with the lower
section's darkness. And the upgraded set of American Outlaw 17-inch
wheels adds to both the stylish and sporty elements of the pickup.
And any time you need to do real pickup duty, there's a thick
rubber mat protecting the bed and you can hook up a trailer to the
hitch for the messy jobs.
The interior shows off a well-appointed and loaded pickup. The
seating is well-done because you can sit three across like a
classic bench, or you fold down the center for individual bucket
seat style comfort. This has the best features, like cold-blowing
air conditioning, power windows, power locks, dual airbags, and the
factory AM/FM/cassette stereo with a separate CD player. The
odometer is believed to reflect the full mileage, and it has a
well-kept style, right down to the working courtesy lights. And
this one remains long-haul comfortable with a tilt steering column,
cruise control, and a full gauge package.
Under the hood is a 5.7-liter Vortec V8. This is a modern
fuel-injected powerhouse, and it has the same look of good care as
the rest of this GMC. So it fires up readily and likes to hit the
road. And features like the four-speed automatic transmission with
overdrive reaffirms this cruiser-ready feeling. Power steering,
power brakes, front discs, and modern Michelin tires make for an
easy driving pickup.
Complete with owner's manual, this is a young classic with plenty
of sporty and premium style. Don't miss this deal. Call now!
