For Sale: 1986 GMC 1500 in Lithia Springs, Georgia

Vehicle Description

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

The story that we were told was that this GMC spent decades under one family's care. We don't have the confirming paperwork, but you get that kind of sense from the way this one is presented. It feels like a well-respected pickup that also wanted to earn its place with the family. This is finished in its correct two-tone color, and it's hard to deny the appeal of a red and tan to represent a 1980s machine. It's believed to be mostly the original paint, and pieces like the patina bed and dealer tag help to tell the story of where it came from and its prior life story. Overall, it's the right level of aged-in kind of style to look right on a truck that was an heirloom. The 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. There have been recent investments in the bench seat, door panels, carpeting, and headliner to make this one quite inviting. 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. There's also a retro-style AM/FM digital tuner that now gives you modern USB and Bluetooth connections so that you can plug in your phone and get the ideal road trip music.

Under the hood is the correct-style 305 cubic-inch V8, and just like the rest of this truck, it's very stock and honest. Topped with a Quadrajet four-barrel carburetor, this fires up and runs with the smoothness of a well-respected powerhouse. And this one wants to be a solid total driver. That's why you have a recent investment in new front coil springs, front ball joints, and shocks all around. Plus, the three-speed automatic transmission, power steering, and power brakes with recently serviced discs up front are all part of an attractive cruiser package.

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