1985 GMC Jimmy Blazer

When the big automakers walked away from the full-sized two-door SUV market, hey left a lot of fans out in the dark. Fortunately, reat trucks like this 1985 GMC Jimmy still exist, roviding that awesome blend of practicality and style that no other 4x4 can deliver.The tan paint job isn't going to get you a lot of attention, ut on the other hand, t gives the Jimmy a clean, ncluttered look that won't get dated. With a truck that you're going to keep for a long time, hat's important. And it's in excellent shape, howing signs of careful maintenance over the years and looking pretty much the way it might have in, ay, 988 when it was just a few years old. The doors fit and sound the way you remember and the color-matched fiberglass top gives it an all-of-a-piece look. There are no signs of abuse or accidents in the way it looks and details like the big chrome bumpers, iamond plate running boards, nd oversized side mirrors remind us that this is a truck that doesn't mind being a truck, ot a wimpy "crossover." The GMC brand hadn't started their upmarket march in 1985, ut things like the brushed stainless tailgate insert and bright side trim mean that this isn't a base model, ither. The tan cloth interior is shockingly well preserved. Twin buckets up front show minimal wear and are comfortable enough for all-day drives. A functional center console gives you cup holders and a place to store odds and ends and the wrap-around instrument panel will look familiar to anyone who drove a GM truck in the '80s. The gauges are still bright and this Jimmy came loaded with options, ncluding power windows and locks, tilt steering column, nd air conditioning. Somewhere along the line, he original radio was dumped in favor of a digital AM/FM/cassette tuner, nd maybe you'd be ready to upgrade it once again when you get this truck home. Back seat space is massive, ith a plush bench seat that's perfect for two but will hold three in a pinch. Full carpets with durable rubber mats mean you don't have to worry too much about getting things dirty and the cargo bay, ven with the spare tire in there, s truly massive. If you're going somewhere and taking a lot of stuff, he Jimmy is what you need.The engine is a robust 350 cubic inch V8 with a 4-barrel carburetor, enoted by the 'L' in the 8th slot of the VIN. Yes, arburetors were still doing their thing in 1985, hich also makes engines like this extremely easy to upgrade. Fortunately, his one appears to be almost completely stock, rom the air cleaner to the exhaust manifolds, lthough a snarky-sounding Flowmaster muffler has been added for effect. The engine bay is shockingly clean, ith mostly OEM parts visible throughout and service access is awesome. The A/C has been upgraded to R134a refrigerant, hich makes it easier to service in the future and still quite effective. The automatic transmission is linked to a familiar 2-speed transfer case and heavy-duty axles with automatic locking front hubs, o getting out of trouble is easy. It's clean and tidy underneath, ith signs of careful maintenance, ncluding a new high-flow catalytic converter for emissions legality. And the original Rally wheels are now wrapped with right-sized Uniroyal radials.You remember these trucks fondly and there still aren't alternatives that can keep up. This one is in great shape and quite reasonably priced. Call today!
