Description of 1979 GMC Sierra 1500

For sale: 1979 GMC Sierra Grande K15 4x4 dry western survivor from the Montana high desert. Original truck that has had two older owners before I got it, never lifted, wheeled,mudded, or hooned. Has some minor rust, but here in the land of the prickly pear cactus and sagebrush, we don't get the major rot that's so commonly seen on these square body trucks. When was the last time you saw a nice straight driver? All originaldown to the original jack, handle and lug wrench. Great classic truck that's inexpensive to own, repair, insure and license.

Exterior: Straight with only minor rust.Would need paint to be really nice. Drivers door is dented as shown, small crease in fender.Original but faded and peeling paint. Chrome is good (one damaged molding on driver door) with no pitting. Glass is good. External rust (other than surface)is limited to a spot behind the passenger rear wheel, and two small spots on each bottom cab corner. Doors, fenders, and box were spared from the tin worm. Hood isstraight and not bent at the usual spot these bend.Underbody rust in driver floor (couple of holes there)and inside rocker/brace areaon both sides. Cab mounts and rest of undercarriage looks good. Splashpan area inside front fender behind wheel has the typical spot ofrust. White house paint was spilled in box and some spatters on outside of truck. Overall good solid original condition - drive as is or restore.

Interior: Decent original driver condition. A few cracks in original dashpad and seat under the covers. Everything works as far as I can tell - radio, parking brake, lights. gauges, wipers, heater, etc. Heater switch has been replaced with aftermarket. Lap belts are there, (driverbelt replaced), shoulder belts were removed.


Mechanical: Starts, runs, and drives out great with original 350 4 barrel and 4 speed transmission.Truck has the desirablehubs and part-time 4x4, all in good working condition.I ran with hubs lockedin up to highway speeds and then ran in 4 hi and 4 lo. Power steering is quiet and brakes work well. Engine runswell for137k miles and has good oil pressure with nomajor leaks. Does startwith a puff of smoke at startup from valve seals, and will use oil over time.Everything works as far as I can tell, all lights, gauges, parking brake, etc. Previous owner stated both fuel tanks worked, but I've only ran off the right side. Rallywheels are excellent with new rings and tires are very good 31 x 10.50 Nokian traction radials. New Flowmaster exhaust sounds very healthy. Speedo head is noisy at times.


Pricing/Misc:This truck WILL SELL at NO RESERVE. There is no buy it now,so bid to win. Remember, all vintage cars and trucks needsome work and there are always items to tinker with on them. This truck is37 years old, so keep that in mind.

I have many photos of it but will be glad to take more if needed. Please ask any questions you like before bidding. You will be answered quickly and honestly.Transport isreadily available, and definately cheaper than fixing rust on an eastern tetanus truck. Montana title isclear with no liens. Truck runs well, but flying in and driving the truck home isn't advisable. This is a rural state with a long way between towns and cell service is spotty.
