Description for GMC Sierra 1500 1981

I found this rust free 1981 GMC in the California Central Valley. I live on the coast near Pismo Beach and we see a lot of rust in vehicles around here because of the salt air. I was very glad to find this little Jimmy without any rust. I always liked the lowered stepside pickups with a huge set of tires under them. This one was a fleetside and I think the previous owner drove by braille. The right side of the bed was all caved in from bouncing off of whatever got in his way. He did tag the lower right door lightly, utthe dentpopped right out. It was not easy to find a GMC stepside bed but lo and behold there is one on it now. It is the same as a Chevy, xcept for the tailgate anyway. I had planned to use a bumper from an El Camino or may be a station wagon that has the tail lights in it already so there is no rear bumper at the moment.

The interior was switched to green, ossibly by the same blind guy, hat ran into everything. It is hideously ugly and I was already committing a couple of paychecks to the LMC truck parts catalog to rid myself of the green.

The old gal runs half way decent, t the moment. The 250 CID straight 6 cylinder engine and the 3 speed manual transmission both work just fine, ut were not in my plan to keep. I was hoping to install a nice small block Chevy with a Car 4 speed to make a little hot rod out of it. In my rush to get started on the project I guess I completely spaced on the California smog laws and that put a damper on my plans. So I have decided to look for a 1975 or older truck that doesn't need to be smogged and let this one go. Maybe you live in a state that you can actually follow through with my plan. Or just drive her the way she is.

THE TIRES AND BRAKES ARE GOOD. THE CLUTCH LETS OUT JUST BARELY OFF OF THE FLOOR SO YOU MUST BE SURE IT IS ALL OF THE WAY IN.THE MUFFLER IS BRAND NEW TOO!

I have a California title in my name. The truck will not currently smog, n California, ue to a part for the choke being broken on the carburetor. I have located another carburetor for $100.00 if needed.

This is a no frills truck no power steering, o power brakes, o A/C, ut it does have see thru windows and rotating tires, ummer heating and winter air conditioning if that's any consolation. I can deliver the truck for $1.00 per mile round trip up to 200 miles or so. Or I can assist (loading/unloading)with shipping. I live in Southern California 90 miles north of Santa Barbara and 10 miles south of Pismo Beach. If you have questions I can be reached at (805) 550-8502. Blessings, ana.
