Description for GMC Sierra 1500 1984

Hello everyone and thanks for taking the time to view my 1984 GMC Sierra Classic short bed. This truck was special ordered back in 83 as an early build 1984 model with some very nice features (some are very rare), nd is absolutely incredible. This 84 short bed survivor is completely stock and all original other than the Desert Sand (code 64) paint was repainted about 10 years ago. The truck has never been in an accident and has never had any panels replaced, ut the Desert Sand paint was resprayed due to fading. The tan (code 61) on top and bottom is original and from what I can tell, as never been resprayed. Rest assured, t has had a very easy life and has been very well maintained. I'll do my very best to describe "Papaw's" truck from top to bottom and front to back.


This Sierra Classic has always been garaged kept and it is very obvious that this truck has always been loved. The paint is astonishing and still shines like new. The grille is original with no breaks or cracks, ut it does have some slight fading. It looks great for it's age. The front bumper looks excellent and the chrome shines like new. The hood is superb with no dents and rock pecks are minimal. Both fenders are flawless and look great. The doors are great with no issues and even the bottoms look excellent. The bottom of the doors on these trucks are prone to rust around the drain holes, ut not on this truck. It has been a southern truck all of its life and it shows. The rocker panels (which are also prone to rust) are flawless and without issue. The bedsides are superb with no dings or dents and they're perfectly straight. The tailgate is in good shape, ut there are a few scuffs at the very top where you can vaguely see the remnants of the bed liner that used to be attached to it. I touched it up, ut upon close inspection, t can be seen. Inside the bed is incredible. Yes, ts missing some paint and the bed liner wore some of the paint off in certain areas, ut for a 31 year old truck, t looks amazing. There are no major dents inside the bed, or is there any rust in it. Its really nice seeing an original bed floor because all of the factory seam sealer can be seen. You can really tell how well the truck was taken care of and just how nice it is by examining the bed. The tool box is a Delta and is smaller than most. I really like it because it doesn't take up a lot of bed space. The top is in fantastic shape with no dents, ings or issues. The roof still retains its original tan paint as well. You can see on the very edge, ight above the sliding back glass, hat the paint is getting thin, ut its just on that edge. The wheels are factory "bullet hole" GM wheels and are excellent for their age. They are not as shiny as a new set would be, ut they are great. Of course, hese could be polished out and made to look like new if someone wanted to. They are not beat up, amaged, r scraped up bad. The tires have probably 50-60% left and are the original style Uniroyal Tiger Paw tires.


The Mahogany interior of this Sierra is absolutely stunning and is by far the nicest original interior that I have ever seen personally. Remember, his was a special ordered truck, o even though it may seem odd, hese options are original. The bench seat still retains the original mahogany vinyl covering and there is not even a single rip in it. I have never seen a Sierra Classic or a Silverado with a vinyl seat covering with all power options, ut this truck was ordered that way. It has power windows, ower locks, liding back glass, uartz clock (that still works), M/FM radio (works perfectly), ilt steering wheel, ruise control (still works perfectly), nd a/c (blows ice cold). A few things to notice is that the carpet is perfect with no fading and is original. There are distinct differences in original carpet and replacement carpet. This is definitely the original GM carpet and its amazing. The original mahogany dash is in excellent condition with only two cracks in it. One is at the very end on the passengers side where the dash comes to a point, ight beside the silver dash insert (the one that has the Sierra Classic emblem in it), nd the other crack is in the speaker section on top. These are very minor and are definitely not bad enough to cause someone to want to replace the dash. All of the gauges work and look great. All of the lights work and there are no issues that need to be addressed inside. The steering column and tilt work great. Its very common for the column to have play in it, ut it isn't an issue on this truck. The mileage shows just over 50k and everything functions as a 50k miles truck should.

Engine/Drivetrain/Under Hood/Under body

The 5.0L 305 V8 is original along with all of the engine's internals. It has never been apart or out of the truck. This truck was ordered with a 5.0L paired with a turbo 350, o it is a 3 speed automatic. The TH350 is a tried and true transmission that rarely gives any trouble. This truck runs, rives and shifts flawlessly. Under the hood, he engine bay is all original and looks incredible. It is very clean and tidy. Thats just how it has been kept. It hasn't been "freshened" up under the hood, or has it been touched up with any paint under here. Its literally just that nice. Notice the factory paint markings on the firewall and on the radiator support......those are very rare to see on a truck thats 30 years old. Just look at the inner fenders and all of the other parts that are prone to rust.......those areas show just how nice this truck is because those areas are flawless. Notice the infamous build sheet thats still on the drivers side inner fender. A couple of really cool options to notice are the TH350 as mentioned and the Sequoia Special package. From what I can tell, he Sequoia Special is like a z71 package on the newer trucks. This truck has an aux. trans cooler that is definitely factory and the factory original suspension makes the truck stand up a few inches taller than a standard GMC Sierra without that package. I have three other 2wd mid 80s Silverados and this Sierra is noticeably taller by a few inches. Underneath the truck you'll find a beautiful chassis that has never been wrecked or butchered. It is pristine underneath and looks just as you'd expect after seeing the topside. The floors, ab, ed, tc all look amazing.

Honestly, ou'll be hard pressed to find a nicer truck for any amount of money. It really is a time machine. Please take the time to view all of these pictures, o you'll know exactly what kind of glorious truck your making an offer on.

Thanks for looking at all of thepictures. I took a lot of them because Idon't want there to be any surprises for the next owner. It really is a great truck and I know the next owner will be proud of her. It really is a truck that will make you smile every time you drive her. I've driven a lot of these square bodied Chevy and GMC trucks over the years, ut never one like this one. The steering is so perfectly tight, he ride is soft and smooth, nd the power is very linear.
The buyer is responsible for shipping or pickup and even though, know this is aphenomenal truck, t is being sold as-is with no warranty (obviously). I have driven the truck almost daily for the past 3 months since I've owned the truck. If I could keep it, would and I realize that I'll probably never own another Sierra Classic this nice. I have the clean and clear Mississippi title in my safe and it is titled to me personally, o it'll be a very easy transaction. I would also like to mention that the mileage on the truck is supposed to be original. The cluster has never been changed or tampered with, ut I ran an AutoCheck on it and it shows the mileage in the 80k range about a decade ago, hen 100k a few years after that. I asked the previous owner's wife about it and she told me that AutoCheck was wrong and that this truck never had that many miles on it. She said that the mileage shown (51k) is correct and that they just wrote something down at the courthouse because it was exempt anyways. The truck speaks for itself and you can most definitely tell that it has to be low miles by the way it looks and drives. The mileage shown on the odometer to the best of my knowledge is correct.
