1986 GMC C1500 High Sierra

Gateway Classic Cars of Dallas is excited to offer this Cool Orange 1986 GMC C1500 High Sierra. Cool sport trucks aren't a new invention, but many times they're so over-styled that they stop being practical as trucks, and what's the point of that? This 1986 GMC High Sierra looks similar to those pickups you see on magazine covers, but can still do a few odd jobs around the house and drives well enough to take cross-country. OK, so the custom paint is so nice that you likely won't want to be hauling gravel... with this one. The Burnt Orange Metallic paint is a slightly upgraded version on the special order Gold this truck came with, so you won't have to worry about this thing looking like a refugee from the '80s like so many other sport trucks seem to. The look is elegant, yet makes a bold statement, and there's just no way to ignore this truck when it shows up, especially once you look closer and see the detailed pinstripe work on the hood and tailgate. It's all buried under a smooth, glossy layer of clear, and up close it's obvious that someone spent a LOT of time getting the bodywork lined up and smoothed out. The shine is deep and with only a few very minor signs of use, it still looks ready to go to the big shows. Remarkably, this truck gets its trick look with only a few alterations, including some shaved badges and that sleek grille insert, and the only notable non-OEM pieces of hardware on the truck is the cowl hood, sport side mirrors, and slammed stance. All of the trim is in great shape, including the bumpers, and all the windows have been tinted for a sinister look. There's also a nicely painted black bed that allows this truck to still earn its keep now and then. This truck was an up-market High Sierra from the start, so that means good options and a comfortable cockpit is part of the deal. A freshly wrapped vinyl-and-cloth bench seat and matching door panels look great, and the black works perfectly with the bright gold paint. Original gauges look great, augmented with a dash-mounted tachometer that mind the revs for the driver, and they're framed by an expensive aftermarket Black-rimmed steering wheel. The list of equipment includes goodies like factory A/C and a tilt wheel make this a truck you can drive cross-country, and an AM/FM/Bluetooth stereo ensures that you'll be entertained while you do it. Plush black carpets, custom kick panels, and a crack-free, snug-fitting dash cover all add to the upscale feel when you climb inside. Comfortable and super clean, the cab of this GMC is a great place to pass the time. Under the cowl hood, a 350 cubic inch small block V8 was swapped in some time ago from the original 305. This 350 has a nasty cam, headers, aluminum high intake, Holley Demon Carb, and it's been dressed in traditional Chevy Orange with chrome valve covers and an Edelbrock air cleaner. Newer wiring, an upgraded A/C compressor with R134a refrigerant, and a newer alternator ensure reliability, and a giant Demon 4-barrel carburetor builds power effortlessly, although we have to admit that it might be a bit overkill for this motor. An HEI ignition system and black coated long-tube headers bolster low-end torque and sound awesome, especially with Flowmasters at the other end exhaling through side exit tips behind each rear wheel. A TH350 3-speed automatic spins a 10-bolt rear end, which has a heavy-duty cover that looks great. It's been lowered all around with new shocks at every corner, ground control springs up front, and the frame was c-notched in the rear. That shiny chrome American Racing Torque Thrust wheels look great and wear staggered 245/275 performance radials on 20-inch wheels for an awesome stance. We've got plenty of cool trucks in stock, but few of them combine the slick looks, functionality, and timelessness of this High Sierra. Call today!

As the supply of clean, well-finished C10 trucks shrinks, cars like this will become ideal places to park some money for a few years, and there's simply nothing more fun than a vintage pony with a few tricks up its sleeve. Call today! 817-310-9400
