1988 GMC Sierra 1500 Additional Info:

I inherited this beast from my dad in 2007. I had a new 350 small block engine professionally installed and the transmission rebuilt in November of 2008 with new torque converter, radiator and rebuilt carb(over $4200). My dad was an old school mechanic and wanted a carb over the fuel injection. So there is a Carter AFB four barrel carburetor one this. Since the rebuild the engine and transmission has less than 10k miles on. I mostly used this as my fishing kayak transportation to local fishing holes and for picking up lumber. After taking it home from storage this winter the brake lines gave out. This will need all new brake lines. Brakes do not work. The fuel gauge also seemed to give out during the winter but I will give it a fill and see if that fixes it. I have no more time for this and my wife does not want it in the driveway any more....
Starts and runs. Nice and loud4x4 works and this thing is a force in 4 wheel drive
2 almost new tires and these wheels are as awesome looking as I have seen on a suburban.
Body and paint is rough. Typical for an almost 30 year old suv. Rusty on the lower stuff as can be seen in the pictures. Especially by the super cool diamond plate running boards/mud flapps.
Barn doors open but are not original. They are off a lighter color chevy suburban. Nice dark tinted windows on all but front 2 doors
Interior is not great. Front seats have tears second row is ok and no third row. Headliner is hanging low. Windshield is cracked and an amateur CD player install. Driver power window does not work and some others are slow.
The front license plate holder is a unique one as out folds up to a step to work on the engine
K&N air filter as well
Interior pictures will follow after I pull the fishing gear and vacuum
