Sierra Classic 1500 Gentleman Jim
ONE OWNER GENTLEMAN JIM, FACTORY BUILDSHEET, NICELY RESTORED, SUPER RARE GMC!
We bet you're wondering what a Gentleman Jim is? It's an ultra-rare option package for the 1970s GMC Sierra that gives you a cool vintage appearance but all the features you want in a modern pickup. So when you find a fully restored/preserved example like this one (including A/C) you know you're going to be the most interesting truck on the scene.
Black and gold is that perfect color for the era. It usually reminds you of a Trans Am, but this end of the GM family can haul a lot more. If it looks particularly striking in the pictures, it's no accident. And we can tell you it's truly fantastic in-person, too. That's because this rare Gentleman Jim went under a full restoration from 2005 to 2006 and has been treated with the care it deserves ever since. That means the black has a mirror-like finish, and the gold looks like a precious metal. But there's much more that makes this one attractive. These trucks were about offering a higher level of fit and finish, and today that's reflected in panels so straight that the trim looks like unbroken lines running the entire sides of this GMC. Plus, items like the spot lamps, unique grille, fog lights, bed rails, and special gold Rally wheels are great premium features that came from the factory over four decades ago, and they are serious attention getters today.
Open the door and see a '70s Sierra like no other. It may look like a custom truck, but this is all part of the Gentleman Jim premium package. The specialty bucket seats, the center console, and all that wood paneling - this is the a true vintage luxury gem. Even the details are amazing (have you checked out where the paneling meets the doors yet? Or the floor mats?) But more than just a cool presentation, this truck came with all the right features you could want back then and still today – everything from a tachometer to an AM/FM stereo. You'll love opening the side vent windows and the sliding glass rear and just having that old-school comfortable breeze blow through the cabin on a Sunday drive. But whenever the day gets too hot, the air conditioning has been converted to R134a so you'll have plenty of worry-free, cool years to come.
With a truck that's both this original and cool, you know only the numbers-matching engine will do. Power comes from America's favorite V8, a 350 cubic small block. The engine bay is just as clean and honest as the rest of this truck – even the jack and tire iron still live under the hood. The motor has a snappy throttle response and plenty of torque thanks to the factory four-barrel carburetor. This is mated to a TH350 three-speed automatic transmission that feeds a versatile 3.40 rear end. On the road it feels great thanks to features like power steering, an optional stabilizer bar, front disc brakes, and the grip of BF Goodrich tires.
Because there will be plenty of questions about an interesting pickup like this, it comes with plenty of paperwork, including the owner's manual and factory buildsheet. Yes, this GMC Gentleman Jim is just as rare and special as you think it is, and one this well presented may never come your way again. Call today!!!
