For Sale: 1979 GMC 1500 in Vancouver , British Columbia

Vehicle Description

This 1979 GMC K1500 Sierra Classic is a Canadian-market example powered by a stroked 396ci small-block V8 mated to 4L80E automatic transmission and a dual-range transfer case. A refurbishment reportedly completed in 2012 included a repaint in two-tone black and gray along with powder-coating the frame in black, and the truck was subsequently acquired by the seller in 2020. Features include a dual exhaust system, 15″ steel wheels with 33″ BFGoodrich tires, a sliding glass rear window, a Compushift CSII transmission controller, and a Forever Sharp steering wheel. A tune-up is said to have been performed in anticipation of the sale. This K1500 is now offered in Canada with a binder documenting the refurbishment and British Columbia registration. 


The truck was repainted in two-tone black and gray following metal work in February 2012. Features include chrome bumpers and trim, Sierra Classic fender badging, dual exhaust outlets, a sliding glass window, and a receiver hitch. 


Black-painted 15″ steel wheels wear polished trim rings and are mounted with 33×12.5″ BFGoodrich tires all around. Warn locking front hubs are fitted up front


The cab features a bench seat upholstered in gray vinyl and cloth along with matching carpets and stainless-steel trim. Equipment includes dashboard-mounted cupholders, a GMC-branded cassette tape player, and a Forever Sharp steering wheel.


Instrumentation includes a 140-km/h speedometer and a tachometer along with a five-digit odometer showing 22443 approximately on the new rebuilt V8.


The small-block V8 was reportedly stroked to 396ci and features an Edelbrock air cleaner, chrome valve covers, and a Compushift CSII controller. Power is routed through a 4L80E automatic transmission and a dual-range transfer case. The chassis is said to have been stripped and powder-coated in black during the restoration in 2012.

This  79 GMC 4x4 short box Square Body is a true Classic.
