This 1984 GMC High Sierra is one sharp looking classic truck. It\'s come through the years in strong fashion, re-energized with fresh paint along the way and it still features its original drivetrain, anchored by a strong running V8 under the hood. With its tastefully restored exterior resting on a very strong foundation, just a few finishing touches - none of them particularly involved - will take things to the next level and result in a vintage ride that will definitely attract attention.
The light blue and silver combo now draped over the exterior is a great match for this Chevy. Two-tone color schemes have always been a popular choice on trucks of this vintage and for good reason - they provide a fresh look while staying very much in keeping with their original identity. The work here has been performed well. The paint has nice, even coloring and sits under a strong clearcoat that provides a deep shine, and the pinstripes separating the colors still show sharp edges. GMC trucks had the distinction of being among the first to be computer tested before prototypes ever hit the road and the resulting foundation here has served its purpose well - after more than 35 years of service, the body lines on this pickup are solid and there\'s no evidence of any sagging below. A lap around the truck will also show that the trim is in good order - particularly the stretch of chrome running along the sides and back. The bumpers are solid and well-aligned and the diamond plating at the rear is a fitting reminder that this High Sierra is a workhorse at its core. The stance strikes a nice balance - it\'s just a little lower than stock but leaves plenty of tire clearance for driving in everyday conditions with no problem.
There\'s a clean comfortable interior waiting inside the doors. The light blue bench seat at its center shows very little wear, and still has plenty of padding under its cloth cover. Fresh-looking carpeting lines the floor and to each side, the door panels still cling firmly to the steel that surrounds them. The original steering wheel holds its place on the column and the dash area just beyond it still carries its assortment of factory components, including the stock gauges inside the chrome-finished instrument panel and the original AM/FM radio. This truck left the factory with air conditioning already on board, and likely just a little attention in the form of a simple freon charge will have this feature back online in short order. The bed area in back really looks sharp. You\'ll find no evidence of damage from shifting cargo inside the walls - in fact, there\'s not so much as a major scratch visible, and the liftgate raises and lowers with no issues at all.
Everything is in good order beneath the hood. The original 305 cubic inch V8 sits in a well-maintained compartment, surrounded by a clean firewall and inner fenders and it\'s running strong, sending a deep throaty note out to the dual exhaust. The engine pairs with a 4-speed automatic 700r4 transmission whose overdrive gear makes for nice easy motoring at highway speeds. Power steering makes this vintage Chevy easy to navigate, while power brakes that feature discs up front bring dependable, fade resistant stops as it rolls on its set of 15 factory Rally wheels outfitted with RWL Cobra Radial G/T tires.
Stylish and rugged at the same time, this 1984 GMC High Sierra would be a great score for the classic truck enthusiast who puts a high priority on a strong running condition and sharp appearance. Call today!
