Vehicle Description

1972 GMC K1500 Pickup

If you love old Chevy and GMC trucks it might be because you have memories from when you were a kid riding in one of those early models. Or you might just love the classic lines and the way they look. The C series is a line of GM 2-wheel drive trucks, while the K series is a line of GM 4-wheel drive trucks. Beginning in 1960, trucks of this generation were named as 10, 20, and 30 series to represent the 1/2, 3/4, and 1-ton versions of GM's light truck line. Introduced for the 1960 model year, the C/K series was marketed by Chevrolet until 2002 in the United States (GMC marketed the series from 1960 to 1987).

For consignment, a 3 year old body and interior restoration with just 1,000 miles on the build, with a flash drive of over 600 photos of the redux for this 1971 K15 pickup truck is shows the dedication and attention to detail paid during the build. A very popular body style with now the added benefit of power windows, AC and it is ready for someone who wants to hack around in a classic K15 as these never really go out of style.

Exterior
Clean bright red sandwiches a white mid-section on the straight steel panels of this truck. Paint is good with nary a spec of rust to be seen. The cab roof is painted white, and also on those side panels as a delineation marker, a stainless and black painted trimming runs the length of the truck. On the bottom of the white is more stainless with a wide black stripe bordering a shiny stainless. Gaps are nicely minded throughout, and the grille up front is looking spiffy. The bumpers are hanging in there as well and looking great in blingy shiny chrome. Just behind the cab is the bed which is all new steel with the inside fully coated in a black spray in bedliner. The bed sides and tailgate are excellent with no scratches for dings. On the very back is more red and white with the trimming running across the top to match the sides. We note the lower piece of trim has either been left off or lost as the mounting holes are still visible. 15" deep dish truck rally style sport wheels are on all 4 corners and all wrapped with Falken outline white letter Wildpeak 32/11.50R15LT tires.

Interior
A swing of the doors and we see Sheridan style embossing on a mid-door black vinyl panel which houses the actuators and chrome power window switches. On its upper edge are red painted metal sills and white window frame surrounds. Inside your eyes are bowled over by smooth black vinyl bolsters in the form of a bench with red and black houndstooth cloth inserts in a wonderful tuck and roll pattern. This stretching bench presents as new as it was part of the restoration. Also, the steering wheel is a later model 4 spoke style mounted atop a tilt steering column. This fronts a restored dash with a red steel face with a textured black bezel for the all new round gauges, which even includes a factory tachometer. The dash continues across and in the center is a modern AM/FM stereo with Vintage Air heater and AC slides below. Up top, is a black vinyl padded topper that is free of cracks. Down low is like new black carpet and covering the roof is a heavily padded black vinyl headliner insert floating in a sea of red steel.

Drivetrain
Upfront under the hood is a rebuilt by the previous owner 350ci V8 in its orange/red painted and patinaed glory. The engine bay is clean and no rust with supple wiring and hoses, however the engine itself is showing paint chip offs, and surface rust. This mill is topped with a 4-barrel carburetor and has a TH350 3-speed automatic transmission mated to the back. A 12-bolt rear axle is on the back and for the front axle we note a Dana 44 unit. Looking clean and original under here.

Undercarriage
Some light surface rust is seen throughout, but the frame remains structurally sound. Body hangers are rust free as are fender undersides and rockers. No invasive rust anywhere to be seen, and noted the engine shows as very clean on the bottom end. Leaf spring suspension with a 3" suspension lift provides the truck-like ride for both the front and rear and we note power front disc brakes working in conjunction with power rear drums. A dual exhaust system with glasspack style mufflers snakes its way rearward, ending with turnouts just behind each rear tire.

Drive-Ability
I love the perspective one gets behind the wheel of a lifted pickup truck although I usually require a step ladder to gain access. That said, this truck fired right up with the twist of the key and off to the test track I went. On the track the truck performed with adequate power, good bias free braking and superior handling. A smooth ride for a truck as well. All functions were operational during my drive save for the power windows not actuating and the horn not tooting, and I didn't take the time to test the grip of the knobby rubber by doing any off-roading.
A nicely restored and very popular truck with 4-wheel drive capability, a lifted suspension and a super comfy bench seat that all work together to bring you a truck that is at home not only on the street but on any trail you'd like to conquer. Presented with nearly no cosmetic faults, waiting for you in our South Mallway and ready to climb mountains.
