1988 Gmc Sierra 3500 Sierra Classic on 2040-cars
Los Angeles, California, United States
Up for sale, we have a 1988 GMC crew cab 3500 1 ton 4x4. It has gone through a fresh, ground-up restoration with
less than 100 miles on it.
For the record, we bought the truck from California. Being in a great, 100% rust-free original condition, it was
the perfect fit to go under a frame-off restoration. The restoration process started with the exterior of truck.
The body was first pulled apart to the smallest screw and the entire parts of the body were sandblasted. All the
parts were then covered in epoxy primer. After the body work was completed, a high quality paint job was done on
every single part, piece by piece. The black paint was then buffed and polished to a deep rich shine.
Next, the chassis was sandblasted and then sprayed with a high quality chassis saver paint. All the nuts and bolts
with their original pipes were sent for zinc plating before installation. The Dana 60 axles were pulled apart,
sandblasted, and sprayed with a high quality chassis saver paint. Then they were resealed and installed. Next, a
brand new brake system and all brand new suspensions were put on.
The truck comes with big block 454 7.4 L fuel injection engine 400 turbo transmission 205 transfer case. A
4-inch brand new lift kit was also installed on the truck.
In the final step, all the body parts were installed back with extreme attention to detail and professionalism as
you can see in the photos.
For further detail on the parts installed, we have listed all the brand new parts that were used during the
restoration of this truck:
The entire interior of the truck--from the carpet to the headliner

General Motors has officially captured the horsepower crown for mainstream pickup trucks with its 6.2-liter V8. The big mill, available in both the Chevrolet Silverado and GMC Sierra, comes to market with 420 horsepower and 460 pound-feet of torque, handily outdoing its two cross-town competitors, Ram (5.7-liter V8, 395 ponies and 407 lb-ft) and Ford (6.2-liter V8, 411 hp and 434 lb-ft).
The new GM 6.2 will take a bit of an investment, though. Those that want the extra thrust will need to go with either the LTZ or High Country trims from the Chevy, or the SLT and Denali trims from GMC, which are the two highest trim levels for the respective vehicles. Trim levels aside, if you're in the business of towing, GM has you covered. Optioned with the 6.2-liter V8 and the Max Trailering Package, owners will be able to pull 12,000 pounds, a hugely impressive figure.
We still aren't certain as to what sort of economy the new engine will get, but it'll probably be a bad bet for the fuel conscious. As for availability, expect to see the 6.2-liter trucks in showrooms later in the fall.

The stiff punishments are part of broader transportation legislation, but clearly McCaskill has automakers in her sights.
Missouri Senator Claire McCaskill threw down the gauntlet this week, proposing a bill that could send auto executives to prison for life if they were found to have delayed a recall. She also wants to eliminate the limit for fines for auto safety violations, which are currently capped at $35 million.
Judging by your continued enthusiastic response to configurator notices, dear reader, you enjoy speccing out new cars as much as we do. Better still, there tends to be even more ways to personalize, configure and bloat theoretical MSRPs on full-size trucks as there are with more ordinary passenger cars. In addition to trim level, engine and transmission choices, truck buyers usually have to specify items like cab configuration, bed length, number of driven axles, tow packages, gear ratios and all sorts of bits and bobs.
That's why we're pleased to see the DIY specification utility for the 2014 Chevrolet Silverado come alive so soon after this week's Detroit Auto Show debut. While the configurator lacks pricing (General Motors hasn't announced numbers yet) and full options, you can still spec out your half-ton rig, and even print it out or email it to your friends. Beyond the configurator, the new model-specific site is pretty cool, too, with various videos and closer looks at the truck's new features.
The new Chevrolet pickup range won't be on dealer lots until sometime this summer, so whether you're a building contractor, an avid sportsman or just a guy or gal that loves full-size trucks, you might want to check out the link below to keep your appetite whetted. If you're more of a Sierra fan, well, it looks like you're going to have to wait a while - GMC hasn't updated its site yet.
