This 1976 GMC 1500 Sierra Classic has a great vintage look, right
down to its two-tone style and wood-trim interior. Plus, it has
been given the right investments to have a comfortable vintage A/C
cruiser. So that makes for a classic long bed pickup that's both
practical and pretty.
We love a two-tone blue like this. It's the kind of timeless color
combo you'd find everywhere from post-war pickups to some of the
Sierras that are just now aging into vintage status. So this GMC
certainly earns the "Classic" part of its name just from the first
impression. We especially like how this has a nice gloss to get
noticed out on a Sunday drive, but the paint and body never get
overly fancy so that it doesn't look like a proper pickup. In fact,
we bet we know you're just imagining how much more you can carry
with the long bed. There's the right touch of premium that comes
from all the right brightwork details, like the full-length trim,
chrome front bumper, tailgate insert, and classic hubcaps. Plus,
some of the brightwork also makes this a more functional pickup,
like the rear step bumper.
There has been a solid investment inside to keep this truck feeling
fresh and comfortable without losing the vintage atmosphere. For
example, the bench seat looks like it was given updated velour
inserts while still retaining the classic trim in the seatbacks.
You have cool factory-style details, including the premium
wood-like trim, dual-spoke steering wheel, a desirable tilt column,
and sliding rear glass. Plus, there are the right updates for a
better cruiser, like cold-blowing R134a air conditioning and an
AM/FM/CD stereo with USB and Bluetooth.
Under the hood is a clean and classic engine bay. But if you dig a
little deeper you'll discover that this is actually a fresher 350
cubic-inch Goodwrench crate V8. It inhales deeply with a
four-barrel carburetor, and it exhales with a sweet sound out of
the dual exhaust. This has been a well-respected truck, and the way
it fires up and runs so nicely really reaffirms it. In fact, this
is the kind of truck that was built to be driven, and it even has
dual fuel tanks. Add in the three-speed automatic transmission,
power steering, and power brakes with discs up front, and makes for
a versatile pickup you can enjoy for weekend cruising or Home Depot
This has that classic GMC square body look you love, and it also
has all the features you want. So don't let this pickup slip away.
