This 1984 GMC 1500 is a solid Washington State truck that has been restored as a wonderful driver or show truck.
This GMC has an excellently prepared, all metal body with a metal cowl hood and laser straight sides. The truck sports shaved drip rails, filled bed stake pockets and filled gas cap locations. During restoration, the truck had excellent body prep which is free of unsightly sanding marks making the perfect surface for the black paint job. The paint is two stage Sikken base clear, and has a great "pop." The truck has all new chrome, window rubber, door seals and the headlights and headlight buckets have been replaced as well. The chassis of the truck has been painted black and of the body bushings have been replaced. The undercarriage has been coated for durability and the bed has been treated with a rock solid bed liner.
The engine is a Chevy 350 crate motor with an Edelbrock intake, Edelbrock carb and electronic ignition. Keeping engine temp at bay is a 4-core Be Cool radiator with dual Spal fans with a killer looking polished shroud. The transmission is a built 700R4 with a B&M shift kit. The rear end is a rebuilt 12 Bolt unit with 373 posi gearing and gets good traction from a dead stop. The tranny set up is wonderful for highway cruising and pops of nice and clean shifts around town. On the front of the engine is a super clean billet system which runs all of the rotating front drive components. The truck puts out a throaty exhaust note courtesy of ceramic long tube headers and a dual Flowmaster exhaust system.
The truck is all about the killer stance and utilizes a set of DJM upper and lower control arms and springs. All the steering linkage and tie rods are new as are the dropped spindles. The rear end has a rear axle flip kit with raised perches and new springs. The power steering box is a new aftermarket unit and the brakes feature an aftermarket big brake kit with a new master and booster set up. The truck rolls low on 20" Boss 338 wheels with a set of brand new Falken tires. The handling is responsive and the brakes are as well!
The interior of the truck is as clean as the outside and features all new door panels, a new dash cover, new carpeting, a new headliner and billet trim. The seat upholstery is mildly custom while retaining that stock look. The column is a factory tilt unit which has been painted black and the steering wheel is a new billet piece. Pumping out the tunes is a Kenwood CD player with Kicker dash and rear speakers.
For the Chevy/GMC truck enthusiast looking for sweet new ride, this truck is the business.
