Description for GMC Sierra 1500 1987

The collector car market is a funny thing, but when you sell as many cars as we do, you can often spot trends before they're really a trend. Such is the case with '80s trucks, particularly those from GM like this 1987 GMC Sierra Classic 1500. Nice ones are hard to find but when we do get one that's this clean, they never last long. That says there are a lot of you guys out there who just love these... trucks, and it's easy to understand why. This brilliant two-tone blue GMC is simply too nice to be original, but when the time came to repaint it, they stuck to the factory colors, so it not only looks fresh, it looks right. And given how good it looks, there was really no reason to change it too radically, because the blues are still as handsome today as they were in 1987 and the square-jawed styling will never go out of fashion. The deep shine is vastly better than new and with a modicum of care, it should look this good for years to come. It has been fitted with a billet grille up front that gives it an updated look without erasing its identity, but beyond that, it's quite stock and very appealing. And it's still usable as a pickup thanks to a spray-in bedliner. The brilliant blue interior has been recently restored, and again, by using factory-style materials it looks fresh and clean without being old-fashioned. The bench seat has a correct cloth seat cover and the plush carpets are indicative of the upscale Sierra Classic, making it feel far more luxurious inside than you'd expect from a pickup. It's loaded with options, too, including A/C, cruise control, power windows and power locks, plus a tilt steering column, so it's hardly a sacrifice to drive this one every day. It's a great combination of factory and replacement parts, with gauges that are probably original but in very good condition, a very nice dash pad, and a newer Pioneer AM/FM/CD stereo head unit in the dash. Heavy duty rubber floor mats protect the carpets so no worries if you actually decide to use this one to get some work done. Hard to go wrong with a sturdy 350 cubic inch V8, and in 1987 the pickups were actually packing usable power and torque. This one remains completely stock, so service and maintenance is easy and it remains a lot of fun to drive. Obviously someone has taken good care of it, as the engine bay is extremely clean and tidy, complete down to the factory air cleaner and intake hose. It starts easily and idles well, and with more than 300 pounds of torque available, it feels punchy around town. A newer dual exhaust system that ditches the restrictive single catalytic converter setup makes a big difference and thanks to a 700R4 4-speed automatic overdrive transmission, it's a great highway vehicle, especially with dual gas tanks which makes for bladder-bursting range. The underside is quite original, so it's not as clean as the top side, but it's ready, willing, and able to go at a moment's notice. And for the bright blue truck, the chrome Cragar mags and 275/60/15 BFGoodrich radials are the right choice. Just watch, this one will sell quickly, too. If you like the truck, don't hesitate because when they're this nice, they just don't sit around. Call today!
