1984 GMC Sierra 1500 C-10

1984 GMC Truck Custom Short Bed Fleet Side

This was originally an Arizona truck and it spent its entire life there until 3 years ago when I moved to Denver, O. In 1990 the original owner decided to build a show truck out of his daily driver, t was a project that he and his son’s worked on and enjoyed. I’m friends with the sons and I got to see this truck being built and we had a lot of fun with it once it was finished. I was fortunate enough to buy this truck in 2006 and transform it from a 90s prostreet truck to a much more modern design.


I started with the interior and replaced the floor carpet and headliner. I then added seat belts and a new Alpine radio. The huge custom sound system is amazing with the original 1990s Alpine EQ, unch Rockford Fosgate amps and subwoofers. The subwoofer box in the bed of the truck has 2 twelve inch subs and is ported into the cab. The back of the subwoofer box has a Plexiglas window so you can see the speakers. The custom door panels have tweeters, id-range and 2 mid-bass speakers per door (It sounds great!) All 3 Punch amps work perfectly and are super powerful, his is when Rockford was at the top of their game. The interior panels are all wrapped with grey vinyl, ncluding the custom made door panels, enter console and amp rack behind the seats. As you can see in the pictures the console, mp-rack and the interior of the subwoofer box have red accents. Just bought a new red top Optima battery too.

Engine and transmission

This was one of the very first Chevy 350 crate engines, he ZZZ. A FIRST TPI fuel injection system was added along with a Camaro serpentine accessory drive setup. All run by a Camaro computer tuned by FIRST. The newer items are the MSD coil, istributor and wires, eCool radiator, ilwood master cylinder, arch Billet Pulleys, owerMaster alternator, delbrock water pump, anden A/C compressor and a second Sanden for an on-board air compressor. The auto transmission is TH400 with a shift kit and B&M QuickSilver Shifter. The block has been freshly painted and almost everything else on this engine is either chrome or polished. The engine and trans combo only have 4500 miles on them since their install in 1990 since this truck has been just a hobby ever since.

Suspension and wheels

When changing out the stock suspension I decided to do something a bit different and went with a Porterbuilt C4 Dropmember for the front and custom Porterbuilt rear components for the Corvette IRS. The Porterbuilt Dropmember increases ground clearance and adds rack and pinion steering. I used the complete front and rear suspension (control arms, rakes, pinals, ubs, tc.) from a 1994 C4 Corvette. The Porterbuilt items allow the use of RE-7 airbags at all 4 corners allowing the truck to lay frame and ride better than it ever did stock. The air ride system is hard plumbed and controlled by an AccuAir system, t just needs the height sensors put on. The engine driven compressor has an oiler and filter setup as well as an electric air pump as a backup. The 3-piece 22 inch West Coast Customs wheels were previously owned by Larry Fitzgerald of the Arizona Cardinals. They were completely taken apart for repairs, e-chroming of the inner and outer hoops and hardware. The center sections were powder coated silver. The new tires are Pirelli.

Body and bed

This paint job is what they did in 1990 and as you’ve read this truck hasn’t had a ton a use. It has always been garaged so the red paint and 9 different colors in the graphics look vibrant. But the main thing this truck needs in order to look really finished is a fair amount of paint touch-up. The driver door has a small dent equivalent to a 3” door ding, he right-front fender has a 12” scrap along the wheel opening. The hood has an 8” area in the middle that is scorched from a fuel leak back in 2007. The right-rear bed corner has a 2” rub from backing in the garage too close to the wall. There are no major dents, ust the items mentioned and some normal wear like rock chips, tc. This is a very straight truck, t just needs a lot of paint touch-ups. The interior of the bed and back half of the frame need to be painted. The rear inner fenders are newly finished and are in primer. The front inner fenders have not been done yet they are just cut out for tire clearance.


Exhaust is a true dual system with an H-pipe and two Flow-Master mufflers. The exhaust tubing ends before the rear-end.


Aluminum fuel cell and new fuel pump and braided lines with AN fittings.

The truck is being sold as is, o warranty. The buyer will be responsible for all shipping responsibilities, ost arrangements for shipping etc. I reserve the right to pull truck from auction at any time, t will be listed for sale locally. Actual original vehicle mileage is unknown.
