Paint and Body- 6K+ paint job in original 21L light blue metallic done right by Harvey's in Dallas. Beautiful paint! Over 100 photos of paintwork process from beginning to end. ZERO rust repairs! Still has the factory "speckling" under cab and bed. One of the nicest paint jobs you will find on a truck. Bed has ZERO dents! Nothing is shaved or cut up.
Interior- All stock including the original door panels, headliners, factory stereo, bench seat, etc.. Many items were replaced with new but many items were in good enough shape to clean and re-use- this keeps the original "truck" feel without being too sanitary looking. PW/PL, tilt, AC, all gauges and lights work.
To the casual observer, the truck looks like an all original '85 gmc that has been lowered and has nice wheels and tires. There is no 6" cowl hood, giant tach on the dash or other signs of what lurks inside this beast to give away what it is capable of. The mirrors, handles, drip rails, taillights are all stock.... nothing shaved. One look underneath is a dead give away for anybody that knows a thing or two about fast vehicles. 2" primary headers feeding into dual 3" exhaust, 3.5" driveshaft with 1350 u-joints, Ford 9" with Strange center section..... hmmmmm.
This truck is priced at $22,000 or best offer. No trades or silly offers. This is one of the nicest 73-87 squarebody chevy / gmc trucks you will ever see. And yes, it's scary fast. Please email me at email@example.com if interested. Thanks for looking.
