1975 GMC Sierra 2500 Sierra Grande Pickup Truck w/ Camper Gold & White

Up for sale is a 1975 GMC Sierra Grande pickup truck, n gold and white. I was told that I am the third owner, he previous owner had it for only a year and the original owner had it since new until last year. From what the previous owner told me the mileage is accurate. With it only being a five digit gauge I can't tell if it has only 67k or 167k miles. The interior only looks like 67k miles and there are various oil replacement tags that would coincide with it having only 67k miles. I'll try to describe it the best that I can, ut if I miss anything feel free to ask me questions.
The truck's interior is in good shape. The plastics are all in good shape, ithout any major discoloration, ading, r cracking. The carpet is also in good shape, ppears to have been well protected. The paint on the inside is in great shape. There is a slight amount of rust on the bottom of the door jambs. Otherwise the interior is in great shape and really makes the truck shine.
Mechanically the truck is alright. The transmission shifts smoothly and works as it should. The lights all work, ncluding the brights, azards, urn signals and even the interior light. The 350 engine needs a little work. It currently sputters a bit, ould either just need somecarburetor work, r maybe it has something to do with the fuel pump. It doesn't like to go up hill at slow speeds. The AC does work and blows COLD. The heater also works too. The fuel gauge, emperature gauge and oil pressure gauge all work. The speedometer isn't very accurate and I don't think the clock works and I am not sure about the amperage gauge. The radio also works, ut I wasn't able to figure out how to try out the CB radio. It also has anauxiliarygas tank, ut I am not sure what condition it is in. The windows roll up and down easily. The power steering works as it should. The brakes work, ut could probably be better.
The body of the truck is pretty straight. There aren't any major dents. The paint is in decent shape for the age (looks better in the pictures than in person). I believe the white has been repainted due to some over spray on the inside of the doors. Oddly enough the white paint shows the most wear, ith chips here and there. The chrome is insurprisinglygood shape, t isn't dented or pitted and is still nice and bright. The glass is in good shape, esides a small chip in the windshield. The frame is also in pretty good shape, t has some surface rust but nothing too bad. Sadly the truck bed is a different story. The pickup bed has quite a bit of rust, nd is rusted all the way through in some areas (mostly towards the very back). I've tried to take pictures of the underside and of the rust at the back of the pickup. I am guessing this happened due to the camper top. So either a lot of repair needs done to the bed, r it could be replaced, r possibly just the floor could be replaced (I'd think it would look great with a wood bed). As can be seen there's nothing in the camper, here is just some glued down carpet. Also included is the original tail gate, hich is in ok shape, ust with a few dents. Obviously the side steps are add-ons, nd were welded to the frame but could be easily cut off. The rear mud flap and hitch are just bolted on along with the front tire mount.
Overall this is a good truck and could benefit from some restoration. It currently isn't a daily driver and I wouldn't drive it across the country, ut with a little work could be a very nice truck. There are a few problems that need fixed, pecifically the bed and then the engine needs to be tuned (possibly the carb or fuel pump as I mentioned before). I am sure any money put into this truck will be well worth it. The buyer is responsible for setting up shipping and I will help where I can. I am requesting a deposit of $500 in the first 48 hours. Other details can be worked out as they arise.
