1979 GMC Sierra 1500

Talk about a lot of truck for not a lot of money! Someone clearly spent a great deal of effort making this 1979 GMC Sierra 4x4 long bed look this good, rom the cool Hugger Orange paint to the inviting interior. There's absolutely no way you could duplicate this truck for the asking price, nd good luck finding a regular cab long bed in such great condition.Most of these trucks ended up working for a living, ut judging from the looks of this one, t was never a tradesman's work vehicle or someone's beater. Instead, t's a very clean, olid truck with a lot of nice upgrades that make it ideal for local shows and cruise nights, nd maybe a few jaunts into the dirt. The paint is most definitely attention getting, nd has been well-applied over some pretty straight bodywork. With a professional cut and buff, his one could be show-stopping, ut even as it sits, t's going to attract admirers wherever it goes. All the original stainless trim is in place and looks great, s does the front bumper and grille. It's got that big 4x4 stance, ut there are no major modifications, ot even a winch on the front bumper or tackle hooks underneath, lthough it does sport an industrial-strength rear bumper that looks sturdy enough to pull a freighter out of the water. And if you need a work truck, ell, aybe this isn't the right choice because the bed has been beautifully repainted along with the rest of the truck.Inside, red vinyl interior has been stitched to cover up the truck's working class bones, iving it an upscale feel that still appears OEM. The original bench seat has been re-covered recently, nd includes a set of matching door panels that are in great shape. The dash is full of bright, risp gauges that are all fully functional, nd this GMC carries a longer-than-usual list of options including A/C, ower windows and locks, nd a tilt wheel. Entertainment has been given an upgrade, hanks to an AM/FM/cassette stereo which fits neatly in the factory slot. The owner reports that the carpets are original, nd if that's the case, t speaks volumes about how well-maintained this truck really is.Under the hood, ou'll find a 350 cubic inch V8 that looks quite stock in every possible way. The factory air cleaner feeds the stock carb, o it starts and runs like it should and will be a reliable partner for decades to come. You'll also notice that the engine bay is quite clean with no signs of off-roading or abuse and there's plenty of recent work. Behind the engine is a TH350 3-speed automatic transmission and 2-speed transfer case that are part of an exceptionally clean undercarriage. The recent exhaust features a new stock-style catalytic converter and a Flowmaster muffler, o it's legal but still has a bit of a V8 rumble. The cab and bed were lifted off the frame for the build, o the hardware in in great condition and thanks to a 3-inch lift and new shocks, hose giant 35x12.50R15 Falken off-road radials fit quite neatly.Look at the details throughout this truck, nd then take another look at the price tag. As we said, his is a lot of truck for the money, nd you would be hard-pressed to find another one this clean. With great features like A/C and that inviting interior, t's a truck you can comfortably drive just about anywhere, nd the timeless shape will always be popular.
