For Sale: 1980 GMC 1500 in Lithia Springs, Georgia

Vehicle Description

This 1980 GMC C1500 Sierra Classic has V8 power, plenty of originality, and shows all the right signs of being a true Heavy Half package. If that wasn't already attractive enough, this one has everything you want - from a useful bedliner to cold-blowing A/C.

The Heavy Half is a true legend. Just like Dodge's LiL Red Express, Chevy used their pickups to get around emissions regulations. And while they were initially built to be powerful, they really became popular because they were given a chassis built for extra duty, so they were one of the best ways to get the most rugged truck around. It's a terrific story for those who truly appreciate pickups, and that's why we love to see the high degree of work-ready style on this one. Liner paint in the bed, a rear step bumper, and a trailer wiring plug are ready to get the job done. There are also some nice details, like the newer tailgate and the full trim dividing the factory-correct two-tone blue paint. And speaking of the paint, there's a cool mix of patina and metallic that gives this both flair and character.

The sea of blue continues inside. The bench seat is a classic piece that looks good with its button-top style, and a comfy velour is always preferred. Newer carpeting, good door panels, and a smooth dash pad make it quite inviting. There are vintage features here that are both fun and useful, like the tilt steering column, cruise control, and a working AM/FM 8-track stereo. There was even $2k recently invested to keep the air conditioning blowing cold.

Under the hood is an era-correct 350 cubic-inch V8 with a four-barrel carburetor on top. This truck came out of one collection, and it was even said to have been in another before that. It shows that the Heavy Halfs really are in demand, but it's also why this fires up readily like a pickup that has seen good care and respect. So it looks honest, runs strong, and makes a nice tune out of the dual exhaust. And the three-speed automatic transmission power steering, power brakes, and front discs add to a terrific total cruising package.

Complete with owner's manual, you've got the awesome legend of the Heavy Half Sierra presented in the kind of way you want for a true truck. So don't miss this deal, call today!
