Description for GMC Sierra 1500 1985

Selling my 85 GMC Seirra C1500 short bed pickup. Same body style as the classic Chevy C10 square body that was built from 73-87, it was originally equipped with a 305, till I swapped in a 5.3 LS engine from a 90,000 mile 04 Chevrolet Tahoe in it's place. I've driven it over 10,000 miles since I completed the swap in the spring of 2016 while working on the restoration. Since the Tahoe was a 4wd, I couldn't use the 4l60, so the engine is backed up by a th400 transmission that was freshened up when the swap was done.
The truck had been in storage over 12 years when I bought it, & has an absolutely rust free body, it needed very little prep before being repainted in it's original white last summer after the engine swap was completed. Since it's not a garage queen, but a regular driver, the paint is no longer perfect, but still rates an 8 or better. At some point before I bought the truck, a roll pan had been installed, & the drip rails removed, & I left it that way when it was painted. New body bushings, core support bushings, & complete new weather stripping were installed. Inside the cab, it has a new headliner, carpet & matching floor mats, & seat recovered with original style cover. The power window & door locks function as they should. New speakers in the dash & behind the seat are hooked to a Custom Auto Sound vintage style stereo radio with iPod control & aux input. The original door panels are very nice with no chalking or cracks. All gauges work as they should & the cluster is back lit with led bulbs. Has a sliding rear glass & windows are tinted all around. The only major deficiency inside is 3 minor cracks in the original dash, that happened when I removed the dash during the build.
Under the hood rest a stock fuel injected 5.3 LS engine that now has about 100k miles on it, with the ecm receiving a street tune from DBR Performance in Spring Hill. I replaced the AC compressor recently after it started making some noise, along with the dryer, with new AC Delco units. I have not had a chance to get it charged yet, but it's on my to do list. The dual exhaust exits from Camaro LS3 manifolds into Walker Quiet Flow mufflers, so it's quiet as stock. The rear end has 3.42 gears, so it is a great driver around town, & cruises effortlessly at 75-80 on the interstate, all the while getting some pretty decent mileage. The Cooper 255-70 tires were put on earlier in the summer & are on 15x8 Eagle aluminum wheels all the way around. Stance was improved by dropping it 2" in the back & 1" in the front along with KYB Performance shocks on all 4 corners. Brakes front & back were completely rebuilt, including new rubber lines.
The truck is sharp, & a complete joy to drive, it gets compliments every time I am out in it. Everything works properly, & is squeak & rattle free, especially for a 33 year old truck. It is utterly reliable & I drive it every chance I get. If I did not have a company truck, this would be my daily driver. The only reason I'm selling the truck is because I have other projects & I need to concentrate on completing them.
