For Sale: 1996 GMC 1500 in Mesa, Arizona

Vehicle Description

This 1996 GMC C1500 Sierra is about being both comfortable and cool. That means a cool custom paint theme, a loaded A/C interior, an overdrive transmission, and a fresh 5.7-liter fuel-injected V8. It all makes for a sharp-looking classic with modern appeal.


This truck was upgraded to a champagne gold later in life. It makes for the kind of color that fits well with a 1990s machine, but with a brighter finish that gives this one a feeling of quality. And this feeling of the right upgraded touches is seen throughout this pickup. The crystal clear front lights, color-matched side mirrors, and color-matched liner paint on the bed floor add a bit more distinction. There's also the right upgrade of sporty style with the distinct orange and silver pinstripes. Plus, those 20-inch Ridler salt flat style alloys help give this the stance to earn the SS 350 badging added to the side trim.


The interior is built for long-haul comfort, but it doesn't look like it has spent too much time on the road. For example, those dual bucket seats look quite fresh. They are done with a comfy velour, fold-down armrests, and yours even power adjusts to the ideal position. This has terrific features, like a center console, the factory AM/FM/cassette stereo, and cold-blowing air conditioning. It's easy to get comfortable in the driver's seat with a grippy airbag steering wheel on a tilt column, power steering, and a full set of readouts, including the handy tach.


Under the hood is the hardy fuel-injected small block V8. This 5.7-liter unit has an exceptionally fresh look on the block, and that's for a very good reason. This is a fresh motor installed in April 2022, and we have the $5,500 receipt documenting the professional installation. So while it's unknown if the odometer reflects the actual mileage, that's a bit moot considering there's only about 200 miles on the motor! So this pickup really knows how to fire up eagerly and hit the road with confidence. The four-speed transmission is the ideal pairing because it's stout enough to pull real truck duty, and it's also smooth enough to enjoy overdrive highway cruising. We even have a receipt documenting a major brake service within the last year so that this one also stops with assuredness.


The single cab, short bed pickups always have a sporty look that never goes out of style. So when a truck is given the right investments, it's easy to fall in love... especially at this price. Call today!!!
