During its more than 30 years of faithful service, this 1984 GMC Sierra Classic 1500 has plied its trade for only one local owner and has never had occasion to stray far from home onto salted roads that might otherwise mar its sturdy foundation. A recent exterior freshening leaves it looking sharp, so this numbers-matching workhorse is sure to draw admiring glances, whether it pulls up to a work site or bears its burden during weekend pursuits.
This sturdy pickup is still clad in its original black and silver shade that looks particularly sharp all these years later, thanks to a well-applied refresher just a few years back. With its tendency to show every imperfection, black paint is the saboteur of many a paint job, but there's nothing to diminish your enthusiasm here. The silver running the lengths of its sides is topped by pinstripe decals and those are looking good as well. The bug guard sitting upfront and straight, full-size bed in back convey the notion that this is a very capable-looking truck that's very much ready for action as soon as you get it home. Very clean, level chrome bumpers sit in place in both front and back and the cab is surrounded by blemish-free tinted windows sporting clean rubber and trim. In back, the dual chrome exhaust tips extend just the right amount from below the tailgate.
The gray cloth interior is another strong feature of this Sierra. It retains its factory look, down to the plush, padded bench seat that features a tuck and roll look that shows no serious signs of wear. Take a deep breath while inside and you'll have all the confirmation you need that this truck performed its duties for a non-smoker - unlike so many vehicles from this era, it even has a fresh smell inside. Just beyond the factory steering wheel, the dash area also presents well, with its chrome-colored instrument cluster housing an assortment of still easily readable gauges, a retro-style AM/FM radio at the center and a straight pad sitting on top, protected from the elements by a carpet dash pad. The air conditioning system was converted to modern refrigerant a few years back and that feature is also in top form to keep you and your passengers comfortable while on the road. The GMC floormats sitting below are a nice touch that adds a little contrast to the interior while protecting the carpet below. The roomy bed area in back is ably protected by a snap-on cover that's in great condition.
Underneath the hood, the original 305 cubic inch V8 maintains its place in an engine bay that's unusually clean for any vehicle of this age - as an indication of just how clean, the original option sticker is still attached in its original position and is readable. This truck has been well-cared for by its only owner and that's yielded definite benefits for the small block powerplant - it still runs strong and sounds great as it breathes into its stock headers leading to the glasspack mufflers in back. New shocks were recently installed at all four corners, as well as a new gas tank in back. Power steering provides easy navigation, while power front disc brakes offer low-effort, dependable stops for this venerable truck as it performs on its set of 15” stock GMC wheels outfitted with Cooper Cobra Radial G/T tires that have quite a bit of life left in them, including the full-size spare.
