1978 GMC Sierra Classic Lifted 4x4 with Retro78 Paint.
We've all seen trucks like this on TV,...This type of truck would have cameo appearances on shows like the Dukes of Hazzard, The Rockford Files or Magnum PI.....maybe Charlies Angles too.
In that spirit,...here's this awesome GMC,....and I don't use the term "Awesome" lightly. Main reason,...the way it drives. This things is tight,..responsive and tracks PRECISELY!
Great looking paint scheme. I've taken some close up photos of the paint to show the reflection quality of the Black/Purple finish. Those close up photos represent the entire painted panels,...except the Tail Gate...it's 2 rungs down the "Reflection Ladder",...but still nice.
The accent stripes are nice,....crisp lines separate the colors....it's an older paint job that still looks great today....maybe better by design cause you just don't see many like this around,...so,...it's more special when you see one today,....a true classic.
The GMC stands tall and proud.....80"s from the ground up. The BFG's are 85% tread and they are even in their tread,...so you know it''s dialed in correctly.
The American Racing Wheels have a great shine to them too.
The Wood Bed is nice,...solid and is covered by a bed mat to protect.
All the stainless trim looks very nice,...everything shines.
For a truck thats been together for a long time,....it's held up extremely well. No rust either!
Clean and tidy inside. Last owner kept it up beautifully. I'm sure the truck didn't start out with a tweed seat cover....but everything else is from back in the day. Even the dash is original,...no cracks,...it's nice.
Overhead console,...center arm rest with storage and cup holders will keep your root beer from between your legs as you drive...Thats how we used to do it before that great invention....remember those days?:)
THE POWER PLANT.
GM Small Block that sounds great....there's a vey low growl to it,...but when cruising,...she purrs quietly. It's well tuned,...runs like a watch and shifts from gear to gear effortlessly. I'd drive this rig to Panama, turn around and head to Canada without blinking an eye.....it's that nice of a running, riding and driving truck.
No need for any mechanical work at all....she's ready to GO!
Super clean,...detailed and too nice for the OFF-ROADing. The 4x4 works like it should,..just lock in the front hubs and you'll get there.
THE FINAL WORD.
Please expect a rust free, great driving fully functional 4x4 GMC that still looks great by any and all who see it. I'm 51 and from Oklahoma,...some of my buddies had these then,....those were great times we had back in the sticks drinkin' beer and listening to Boston,...man we thought we were something else,....and life would never change:) Well here's your chance to re-live those days for you 50 something ex studs!
Schroeder Motors has been in business since 1968,....Family Owned and Operated going on 3 generations. We're located in St. Charles, Missouri and we only sell what we like,.....we like this Rig,...you will too.
