1985 GMC

solid truck with a solid history.
was bought new in '85 for use by a local mountain water company. 2nd owner bought in 1990 and used for light lake duty. ( kept at lake).
spent entire life in new mexico, almost no salt ever used on our roads and vehicles rarely rust due to dry climate.
we believe this is an excellent truck for a 100% restore or mod- truck due to it's highly original and near-straight body parts. very good body for 31 years old. or, you can leave the body alone and enjoy a good work or play truck as is.
-very solid body and frame. body mounts and all undercarriage have no rust through or deep rust very minor surface rust only.
- engine was rebuilt ( unknown mileage on rebuild , using knighton's automotive machine service, one of the top tier engine companies in new mexico.
- transfer case and driveshafts rebuilt at some point. no funny noises or obvious issues.
- clutch and transmission solid, operate correctly with no odd noises or issues. large truck 4 speed, granny gear 1st gear.
