For Sale: 1972 GMC Sierra Grande in Ft Worth, Texas

Vehicle Description

This 1972 GMC C2500 Sierra Grande is a true classic pickup. With its two-tone, long-bed profile, and plenty of wood-like trim - inside and out, it's an intoxicating balance of workman vibes and true vintage charm. But as you see upgrades like big block power, Bluetooth radio, and modern A/C, you can understand how this also loves to be a fun-cruising vintage pickup.


GM had some great two-tone color schemes on their pickups. After all, it's not just a white streak on the body against the blue, but also on the cab roof - the result is a truly layered look. Plus, we love the way this premium Sierra Grande has the extra space of the long bed to show off the vintage wood-like trim. You can tell they took their time to make a solid restoration investment here. Something that makes this quite attractive without getting too fancy to be a truck. After all, this classic GMC is the rarer extra-duty 2500-series. So the attractive long bed is also fully lined. And the build tag suggests this was a camper special, and the big side mirrors are part of this kind of detail. You even still have the 8-lug wheels but now with modern alloys borrowed from a later Sierra HD so you can fit a useful set of modern tires.


There's a sea of blue inside, and vintage lovers will enjoy how this has plenty more of the wood-like trim. In fact, this one really has a feeling that turns back the clock, right down to details like the texture of the steering wheel and the western-like pattern in the seats. But what's also apparent here is the level of investment there has been to get a time capsule impression. That means carpeting, door panels, a dash pad, upholstery, and other fundamentals that have a fresh and inviting feel. And there are also the right upgrades to make this a proper cruiser, including a Cerwin Vega stereo with USB and Bluetooth. And the factory air conditioning has now been updated to a more modern system running R134a refrigerant.


The engine bay gives a stock and tidy first impression. But as you dig just a little deeper, you find some terrific upgrades. This one is now running a 396 cubic-inch big block for the proper torque you want in a 2500-series truck. It's further enhanced with an Edelbrock four-barrel carburetor, an Edelbrock intake, and long tube headers feeding a glass-pack style dual exhaust. And while you may not need all this power for all the things this classic can do (slide-in camper, tow the boat, pull a parade float, etc.) there's also power steering, power brakes, front discs, and a three-speed automatic transmission for easy all-around enjoyment.


The sale comes complete with the owner's manual and warranty card. Classic GMCs always have more distinction because we see them as real trucks. So this 2500-series pickup celebrates that legacy in all the best ways. Call today!!!
