This custom 1970 GMC K2500 is a 3/4-ton 4x4 pickup that underwent a
crew-cab conversion and frame-off refurbishment. It is equipped
with Sierra Grande trim and is powered by a 350ci V8 engine topped
with a factory air cleaner housing and features an Edelbrock
carburetor, intake manifold and fuel pump. Power is sent to the
rear or all four wheels through a 4-speed manual transmission.

conditioning, power steering, power brakes and dual fuel tanks. The

accented with body side moldings, woodgrain appliques and chrome
bumpers. Modifications include a lengthening of the frame and cab
and incorporating the full-size rear doors. Additional exterior
features include dual spotlights, orange cab lights and
supplemental wiring as featured in the optional Custom Camper
package. A 2-inch suspension lift with Skyjacker Hydro 7000 shocks
make room for the 16-inch wheels wearing a set of Cooper Discoverer
A/T3 tires. The color-matched bed is lined with stained wood
planking. The body-colored cab features Sierra Grande trim and is
equipped with bucket seats and a rear bench upholstered in white
vinyl. The trim package also included a deluxe instrument panel and
