1978 GMC Sierra 1500 Additional Info:

Up for sale is a 1978 GMC Sierra K1500. The truck has had a recent frame off paint and restoration (not to stock). This isn't a show truck (the paint has at least two runs in it that I've seen), but is in very nice shape.

The truck starts with no issues and it runs well, with a newer 90s model 350 V8 dropped in. The engine was rebuilt and has a few mild performance items installed (cam, intake, etc.). It has a brand new rough country suspension and mud tires with less than 300 miles on them.

The truck is full time 4 wheel drive and is NOT going to be a good choice for a commuter vehicle. It is a loud and fun truck for a gear head that appreciates big trucks.


-Painted inside and out recently with new fenders and floors installed.

-Has a louvered tailgate with the handle reversed to the inside, fully functional.

-New tires.

-Runs great.

-New rubber floor lining.

-New lights/light assemblies, both front and rear.

-Wheels, mirrors, front bumper, grill and inner fenders all paint matched in a gunmetal gray.

-The heater works.

-It's loud and it’s tall.


-It's loud and it’s tall.

-There is no radio or speakers in the truck.

-The seat is in bad shape cosmetically. It still feels comfortable and has a seat cover over it.

-The speedometer has a new cable installed and is hooked up, but it isn't very accurate.

-It is geared pretty low, so at higher speeds (over 60) the truck is tached pretty high.

-As mentioned above, it isn't a show truck and the paint has a couple of runs. You do have to look pretty hard to see those.

-When the body work was done the gas door was shaved and the intent was to put a fill neck in the bed, I haven’t gotten around to that yet. So you currently have to fill the truck by reaching up in the fender well.

-I have seen some small spots of surface rust on the bottom side of the truck, not the frame but the underside of the body. Nothing major, but it could probably do with some spot sanding and an undercoat job.

-The odometer isn't correct, the motor was put in around 1000 miles ago.

-There is no air conditioning, but the side louver windows work perfectly.

I put the price at 11k with a best offer option. I do require a deposit from the winner within 48 hours of $500. I don’t offer delivery, but will assist with loading if required. The truck will not leave my garage if full payment hasn’t been made through a certified cashier’s check or cash.

If I’ve left anything out or you have further questions, by all means send me a message.
