“A good truck can be the start of a long friendship.” – Period GMC Pickup Truck magazine ad headline
Hagerty characterized the attractive design of these GM pickups this way: “Whether Chevrolet or GMC, the General's third-generation, 'square-body' trucks were a dramatic departure from the company's previous efforts. The third-gen models featured squared-off front and rear fascia, subtle body contours honed by wind-tunnel testing, a more accommodating and ergonomic interior… a style decades ahead of its time.”
Offered here is a refreshed and upgraded 1984 GMC C1500 short-bed pickup in bright blue over black-and-blue. The high quality and careful planning of the stylish refresh is evident, and the truck has traveled just 3,105 miles since the completion of the work.
The exterior bright blue paint shows well across every surface, with no indication of fading or other damage. There is no damage to any sheet-metal body panel; no dings and no dents. (To best assess the quality of the paint and trim finishes, be sure to view the close-up photographs of the car in the accompanying gallery.) A black, hard-plastic cargo-area liner is installed to protect that area of the truck. There is some evidence of regular use on the cargo bed. The truck's front grille looks nearly new, and the tailgate is free of emblems or embossing. That clean look out back is further enhanced with the removal of the rear bumper. The chrome front bumper is in excellent condition with minimal patina. With the exception of the GMC emblem in the front grille, all other badging and identification has been removed with mounting holes properly filled for an overall “shaved” look. Lighting lenses (including on the headlights and the custom taillights) and cabin glass (including the tinted, fixed rear window) are perfectly clear and undamaged. Ridler® 5-spoke, dark-finish, 20-inch wheels are mounted with performance tires. The truck's new front disc brakes with drilled and slotted rotors and red brake calipers can be seen through the open wheel design.
Inside, the “refeshed stock” theme continues. A stylish statement is made on the black dashboard face which a “crocodile-skin-look” applique. Lower portions of the metal dash are painted in the body color. The fresh, black-vinyl seat upholstery is a particularly appealing classic look. (Please view the close-up photography in the gallery to assess the condition of the Jimmy's various interior surfaces.) The stock leather-wrapped, 4-spoke, black GMC-branded steering wheel frames the classic, square-design, standard GM truck instrument cluster. However, all gauges have been updated with digital-readout replacements. Ventilation and heating controls are stock slide-levers. An upgraded Sony® audio head unit is mounted in the factory-radio location. The cabin sound system has been fully upgraded with added components professionally mounted behind the bench seat. The shift lever for the NewVentures® 3500 5-speed manual transmission is floor-mounted. Fresh black cabin floor carpeting is protected with rubber mats.
Under the hood, a very clean 350-cubic-inch GM V8 has been maintained in a well-ordered engine bay. An open-sided chrome air cleaner and chrome valve covers add flair. All components appear correctly mounted. In the same way, viewed from below, the truck's chassis is complete, original, and undamaged. The truck's new brakes, new ball joints, new drag link, and new tries are all on display. (To best evaluate the condition of undercarriage surfaces, please review the gallery photos shot from below.)
While the more than 170 high-definition photographs and the short walk-around-and-startup video available on the GarageKeptMotors website showcase this '84 Chevy C10 in detail from every angle, including from below, we expect and encourage in-person inspections at our Grand Rapids, Michigan showroom. Please call to arrange an appointment in advance as our showroom is not open to the public. And feel free to get in touch anytime by phone or email if you have questions.
This refreshed and upgraded blue '84 GMC 1500 makes a style statement, a comfort statement, and a performance statement all in one. And all that makes for a compelling offering.
