Vehicle Description

1987 GMC 2500 Pickup

While relatively straight-lined and boxy in appearance, (leading to their "Square-body" nickname from the public), the Rounded Line trucks were the first generation of the C/K to be designed with the use of computers and wind tunnels, optimizing the exterior shape for lower drag and improved fuel economy. The chassis was an all-new design, (with all trucks receiving a leaf-spring rear suspension); K-Series trucks moved to all-wheel drive, (shift-on-the-fly 4x4 was introduced for 1981).

For consignment, a "square body" GM labeled "rounded design" pickup truck with a K designation. This means it's a 4x4, and our model shown here has been lifted 12 inches with leaf springs. It has a rebuilt 350ci V8, a custom interior, a custom stereo, a cowl induction hood and blingy 24-inch chrome wheels. Classic trucks are hot right now and we see a trend for owners to use them as a promotional piece for their businesses, and this truck screams look at me with its retina searing paint and larger than life stance.

Square and rectangle design abound right upfront with the horizontal ribbed billet grille flanked by side by side headlights with turn signals turn signals in square and rectangle form. A big blingy chrome bumper protects the front and all badging has been shaved. All steel, with well minded gaps, is bathed in retina searing yellow, which shows well with only minor faults and inclusions. Between the fenders is a 2 1/2-inch cowl induction hood, giving a nice muscular look to the front end. Two doors with shiny large mirrors hanging from either side grace the slab steel sides of this monster rig and window trimmings are blackened. The bed has a black sprayed in liner which shows in good condition, having limited usage most likely because it's a bit of a climb to get up there. On the back, is a solid gate and shiny bumper which has the LED tail lights floating off of each side of the box. Lightly smoked glass surrounds the passenger compartment and very shiny 24-inch chrome snowflake style wheels are on all 4 corners, and wrapped with 345/45R24 low profile rubber.

After a near Everest like climb to open the driver's door we are rewarded with all custom inside for the door panels showing crank windows and manual yellow dice topped locks, and all bathed in a mix of creamy beige tweed and brown tweed inserts. The custom creamy beige and brown appear again on the bench in tuck and roll brown tweed for the inserts and smooth creamy tweed bolsters. The standard dash is within along with the dressy silver trim molded panel for the extra gauges available on this particular dash arrangement. The thick wood rimmed rally steering wheel by Grant fronts this dash which has a flip down AM/FM/CD radio. Deep pile brown carpeting is looking nearly new and begging for a wriggling session with my well manicured piggies. The 4x4 shifter resides on the hump, and above is a felted broadcloth headliner in beige that hangs tightly.

Under the hood in a slightly dusty but corrosion free engine bay complete with mirror polished fender liners. It has the correct and rebuilt 350ci V8, factory TBI electronic fuel injection feeding it, and on back is a rebuilt 700R4 4-speed automatic transmission. This pushes power rearward to a 14 bolt rear and with the pull of a lever power also goes to the front 10 bolt axle. Fab!

Not unlike the engine bay, a light coating of dust and road dirt is showing down below with some surface rust making an appearance on the untreated components. A heavy application of black undercoated pointing abound helping to keep things structurally sound. Headers are now on and feed down from the engine, through the catalytic converter and then branch into newer Borla dual exhaust that ends with large polished tips behind the rear tires. Leaf springs are all around and as noted a 12-inch lift has been added to the suspension. Power disc braking is on front, and power drums for the rear.

As expected this truck came right to life and was hitting on all 8 cylinders right out of the gate. We were off and it drove beautifully for a lifted rig, switched seamlessly into 4x4 mode, and handled nicely for a high truck. The brakes are solid, and all was fun working 4x4 order, and yes, my tootsies did get their weekly carpet wriggling session.

A great example from 1987 and the GMC camp, with a custom paint job, custom interior and all around great square body classic looks. Lifted 12 inches and like new tires wrapping shiny wheels. A classic 4x4 pickup ready for the show or the go.
