Up for a NO RESERVE auction is a beautiful 1985 GMC K1500 Sierra Classic. The 1985 Sierra was the beginningof the end for an era of General Motors trucks that will forever be considered classics, the popular 73-87 "square body" body style. This GMC is a very solid example of a 4 wheel drive square bodywhich are increasingly getting harder to find especiallyin this condition cosmetically. The deluxe 2 tone Apple Red with Frost White paint appears to be the original paint from 1985. It is hard to find one of these this solid underneath the body, there is no rust spots and a lot of the original under paintis still visible. This truck makes a statement when it pulls up; combiningthe original classic body with a more aggressive stance and sound. It is sitting on an 8 inch Super lift with 16.5" Weld polished aluminum wheels wrapped in 38" Super Swamper tires. The original 305cid v8 boat anchor motor was replaced in the 90s with a GM crate 350cid v8. More recently goodies like an Edelbrock intake, Edelbrock headers, Flowmaster muffler, Summit Racing M2008 4BBL Carb were added. This truck runs strong with plenty of power for its size. The classic square bodyera of General motors trucks are timeless and some of the most popular trucks of all time. Due to increasingly limited supply of good rust free examples the value of these 4x4 trucks are rapidly going up and becoming more and more collectible. It is not often you find a truck with original paint that shines this good at a price set by the buyer. Don't miss out on this opportunityto own this Big Red Bad A$$ truck.
Cosmeticallythis truck is in fantastic condition. The paint appears to be original with a good patina and lots of shine. The body panels and lines are all very straight. The original white pin strip is in tact all around. The passenger side of the hood and fender have some patina where the clear coatand some of the paint has fallen off over the years. Also the drivers door has a little clear coat missingas well. There are a few dings here and there but considering its original it is a very straight truck. There was a bed liner that had been in the bed since 1987 therefore preserving the bed very nicely. It is very uncommon to find 32 year old 4x4 truck bed with all the paint still on it. The only missing thing is the tailgate plastic insert. The underside matches the top. There are no rust areas and a lot of the original weather paint if still visible. The frame and axles have been sprayed and look fantastic. All the aluminum on the transmission and transfercase look great as well, again stuff you don't see on a 32 year old truck. This truck is not 100% flawless but for 32 year old original condition the body of this truck is in great rust free shape, and rememberthey are only Original once.
Interior of this rig is in solid shape. The original burgundyinterior had been swapped with a tan interior at some point. Regardless it looks great and goes with the Apple red exterior. There are no cracks in the dash or tears in the seat. The carpet looks great and all the red paint shines beautifully. The Power windows and locks are functional. The gas gauge and tachometer are the only gauges that are consistentlyfunctional while the other gauges are very inconsistentlyfunctional. Because it is 32 years old and has a 5 digit odometer I cannot guarantee the miles. The A/C unit has been removed so it won't be working. All the lights in the dash work as well as the headlights, taillightsand blinkers.
Mechanically this truck runs and drives good. As mentioned before the original 305 has been replaced with a 350. The motor runs good and smooth. The truck is equipped with a K&N air filter, Summit M2008 4BBL Carburetor, Edelbrock intake manifold. Edelbrock Headers going into a Flowmaster muffler with a drivers side turn out. The Original 700r4 transmission shifts smoothly in all gears. There is a few small leak spots after sitting awhile. The truck runs a HD Dana 44 open front axle with Warn locker hubs and a high steer in the front which makes this truck go down the road pretty straight with little effort. It has a NP208 Tansfer case which goes into 4 wheel drive fine. There is a heavy duty Corporate 14 bolt rear axle with 4.11 gears in the rear. The truck has a super lift that is 8" and Weld Racing 16.5 wheels wrapped in 38" tires. Essentially this original 1/2 ton 1500 truck has been transformed into a 3/4 2500, it has all the "good stuff" underneath and runs and drives nicely capable of tacking any kind of terrain.
