NOTHING HOTTER THAN BOX GM TRUCKS, 350 V8, 700R4 AUTO, FACTORY A/C, SLICK 4X4!!
If you like the square-jawed look of the GM pickups of the '80s, this 1987 GMC Sierra 1500 should check all the boxes: short bed, great color, 4-wheel-drive, and a bunch of options like factory A/C. There's a reason we sell so many of these, and you shouldn't be surprised if this one vanishes before you can make your move.
It's hard to make one of these trucks look bad, but somehow bright red delivers a knockout punch that suits it extremely well. The big truck seems almost sporty with the vivid paint and it's extremely well maintained. It's not perfect, but it's also obvious that this truck never had to hold down a day job and instead received regular washing and waxing and never had to suffer through a harsh northern winter. Gaps are pretty much what you got from the factory and the shine is fantastic, surely good enough to stand out at the next local cruise-in. A few chrome pieces make these trucks look more upscale than you'd think for a working-class machine, and the stainless beltline trim and big chrome bumpers are in excellent condition. And while the bed is ideally suited to doing some hard labor, it's just so nicely finished that you'll probably think twice before stacking it full of lumber or bricks for your next project.
The two-tone gray cloth interior has a definitely upscale feel, particularly given that this truck was built nearly 30 years ago. The seat cover has to be new, but it appears that things like the carpets, dash pad, and door panels are original, which speaks volumes about the quality of this pickup. It's also loaded with options, including factory A/C, power windows and locks, a tilt column, cruise control, and a sliding rear window that's ideal for ventilating the cabin when it's not quite hot enough for the air conditioning. The original gauges are in excellent condition and the factory AM/FM/cassette stereo remain in the dash. And as a 4x4, there's a shifter on the floor for the 2-speed transfer case, and the go-anywhere ability is one of the most appealing features in a pickup like this.
In a short bed/regular cab pickup, a 350 cubic inch V8 is plenty for entertaining performance on and off road. The engine is largely stock, so it starts easily and idles smoothly, and it has that great low-end torque that makes this truck feel more like a vintage muscle car than a utilitarian hauler. The engine bay is mostly stock, from the air cleaner to the exhaust manifolds, although the dual exhaust system with Flowmaster mufflers make it sound a little more potent out on the streets. Linked to a 700R4 4-speed automatic overdrive transmission and the aforementioned 2-speed transfer case, it's a decent highway cruiser that still pulls down acceptable highway fuel economy. The chassis is certainly clean enough for us to think it's never been off-roading, but the hardware is there if you're ever consumed by the need to head out into the wilderness. Factory Rally-style wheels lend it a sporting demeanor and wear big Michelin LTX radials that fill the fenders just right.
These trucks remain eminently popular and are still very affordable, but the supply of clean, unabused pickups is getting smaller all the time. Why not indulge yourself and pick one up; you know you've been waiting for one since you were a kid. Call now!
