Description for GMC High Sierra 1979

Work or play, his 1979 GMC High Sierra pickup is up for it. It's got that great look says it's strong enough for the job site, ut it's so clean and well-restored that it almost seems a shame to get it dirty. But regardless of what you do with it, ou're going to be pleased with the way it drives.Many of us remember these as garden-variety work trucks, ut today it's an entirely different story. Yes, t may seem strange to give a truck like this a bright new paint job, ut you can't argue with the results, iving this GMC a whole new lease on life. The angular sheetmetal has always looked great on these trucks, nd especially with the bright blue paint on it, he result is one handsome hauler. The short bed/regular cab model is the one to own, ffering trim proportions that still look substantial going down the road or among other show vehicles. Plus, ith a 6-foot bed you can still move just about anything and you'll never wish you had the added size and weight of a bigger bed. You're in luck, oo, ecause there's a spray-in bedliner and a mat, ust to be sure, o no worries about actually putting it to work on weekends. There's also enough chrome to make this truck look upscale, hich was always GMC's mission; the bumpers (with optional guards), he grille, nd the stainless mirrors all look great. As a final touch, omeone has applied "Ole Blue" script to the tailgate, dding some personality to the cool old hauler.The cloth interior makes a big difference in terms of the truck's luxurious feel. Most of its lesser siblings have sticky vinyl, ut the cloth seat from a '90s GM pickup makes the cab a very comfortable place to spend some time. Other than the seat, t appears to be fairly original, ith a set of door panels in good condition and dark carpets that are surely replacements simply because they're in excellent shape. The factory instrument cluster covers the basics and is a little faded, ut you'll appreciate options like ice cold factory A/C, tilt column, ower windows and locks, nd a Pioneer AM/FM/cassette stereo with speakers in the factory locations, o it's really a pleasure to drive. There are also tinted windows with sliding rear glass, o it's easy to stay comfortable inside on those days that aren't quite hot enough for the A/C.The 350 cubic inch V8 that powers Ole Blue is one of those great small blocks that's just impossibly smooth and effortless in everything it does. The engine bay is nicely maintained and quite stock, o durability and maintenance are no worries the new owner should have. With a 4-barrel carburetor and a recent dual exhaust system, here's plenty of horsepower to make it ready to haul, ell, nything. A freshly rebuilt TH350 3-speed automatic transmission feeds a beefy 12-bolt rear end with highway-friendly 3.08 gears inside. The underside is clean and mostly original as well, nd there's plenty of evidence here that says this truck lived someplace warm all its life. And we have to admit we love the charming simplicity of white-painted steel wheels with dog dish hubcaps, hich carry recent 235/75/15 Kumho radials all around.This truck is either an awesome starter collectable or a really affordable work truck, nd all you need to do is come down and take it for a drive.
