1983 GMC 1500 in Anchorage, AK




1983 GMC K1500

To start, this is more or less to test the waters. I have a 1983 GMC 4 wheel drive short bed pickup. I've been the primary owner for the past 11 years. Bought the truck when I was 14 and completely went through this vehicle as a high school father son project. I am not just trying to make some quick money here if that's how it seems. I am ready to sit on it until I hear a fair deal. This truck has immense sentimental value and would love to keep it but hate to see it just sit in my driveway. So I would rather sell it to someone who will enjoy it and care for it as much or more as I have.

All the work that has been done to this truck was either done by me or my dad. And by gone through I mean almost 80% has been repaired or replaced. It sounds skeptical but I have a folder full of receipts and info dating back to the original purchase from Alaska Sales and Service to prove it. That being said I have a laundry list of improvements that I can go into detail if you are interested but will list a few of the major upgrades.

-new front fenders and used hood -fully electric doors (used) - complete replacement rust free bed from Oregon -custom paint with metallic pearl purple on bottom and black on top with a super thick spray in bed liner. Much thicker than normal -complete spec'd rebuilt motor with a just over stock comp cam upgrade with new lifters and header back exhaust -modernized headlights with 3500 lumen rated led bulbs (wired with retrofit harness to improve performance) -rebuilt front end -rebuilt transmission with upgraded B&M kit -custom upholstered seat along with other interior upgrades

I could go on and on about this truck and can answer any questions you may have. To be completely transparent it does have a few issues. As of right now the driver window does not roll down and the lock solenoid does not work. The carburetor needs a little fine tuning, (possible jet issue) and the headlights won't turn on so the wiring needs to be looked over. Also I will try and load or at least get some more recent photos to send over text. I will entertain any reasonable offer. Or for a negotiated price I can fix the issues listed above but will sell as is. Again, I am prepared to wait until I feel I can make a fair deal with the right person.
