1977 GMC Sierra Pickup
1977 GMC Sierra Pickup
Officially named the “Rounded-Line” trucks by GM, the 1973-1987 Chevy C/K trucks were known more casually as the “box-body” or “square-body” pickup. Sporting a new body style that incorporated rounded corners around the wheel well in addition to a rounded windshield and door frames, the third-generation Chevy C/K trucks had an entirely new look. Larger and wider, the pickups looked more box-like, which is why they were coined the “box-body” trucks.
For consignment, a Sierra which the consigner states “they will hear you coming!” And they will, due to a .30 over 350ci V8 all with plenty of high-performance bolt ons and add ins. Beautiful flawless silver paint, and some 15LT Hoosier 99H's on the back, and a custom interior this short bed is not short on any power or looks… just on the bed.
With a mere consigner stated 1,500 miles since the rebuild by the previous owner's friend, it's all spiffy and shiny exterior paint, panels and consistent gaps. The grille has been simplified to just horizontal ribbing, the original headlight signal light setup is still flanking the newly designed grille. A big shiny bumper hangs below. As we feast our eyes on the remainder of this truck our visuals will certainly not go hungry due to a large rear facing hood scoop, shaved door handles, black window trimmings, a big curled upward metal sun visor atop the exterior of the cab, and a straight bed surround. For the bed the rear has been tubbed for accommodation of the wide tires. The actual bed is silver and shines like an uncirculated 1963 dollar coin. There is a thin waterproof rug material laid in as a bed liner, and the rear tailgate is like new and also shaved. Familiar Corvette taillights are inline on the rear roll pan and this area is sans bumper for a real clean look. 15-inch Weld Draglite wheels are all around with 237/75R15's in front and ultra-wide 31x18.50x15 rear Hoosier rubbers. For entry and gate actuation a fob needs to be in hand.
In a color scheme not often seen but none the less attractive, we see door panels with a large gray molded plastic door panel that has a triangle white stitched and tufted purple vinyl panel for the door actuator and window crank. Also, a purple vinyl topper for the door pull adds even more bling for the panels. Inside is all custom and all amazing with a long single bench seat with triangle stitched tufted inserts and smooth silver bolsters. Some snazzy purple piping borders these seats. For the dash, the original GMC black panel has been relieved of its original gauges and now has some custom white faced AutoMeter Pro comp brushed bezels gauges peppered on to this new carbon fiber dash panel. As we scan our eyes across the dash, a gray background provides the foundation for another thin triangle stitched padded panel on the passenger dash and a large glovebox below. In the center on the hump is a custom fabricated box in purple with a B&M shifter installed. Gray carpeting is on the floor, and above the headliner is another dual paneled purple insert with more of the triangle pattern and smooth padded silver vinyl surrounds.
A consigner stated 383ci V8 (350ci bored over .30 and stroked) stroker (no documentation provided) is topped with a single 4-barrel Edelbrock carburetor and a TH350 3-speed automatic with a shift kit. This setup throws power rearward powering a Ford 9-inch posi 4:11 rear. The entire engine bay has been totally reworked and polished and purple wiring and hoses are now seen. You may be seeing double as it sports a mirror under the actual hood!
A solid steel frame and undercarriage floorpans, rockers and toe kicks hold a new aluminum fuel cell in the way back. Some of the floor pan area has been repainted silver others remains what appears to be the original red factory spray. Shiny headers melt together underneath into a single piped dual exhaust that has side pipes on, but these are not hooked up. Independent coil springs with power disc brakes are on front, and ladders with coil-overs and power disc brakes are on the back. All looking just racy underneath.
A quick fire up and the high performance engine comes to life! Loud and proud she was off to the test track where we put this truck through its paces and it performed beautifully. All mechanicals are working and the interior proved to be comfortable and visually appealing.
This rebuilt to a higher standard short bed Sierra GMC is a stunner, and deserves a serious look if you are a Sierra fan and looking for something that no one else has. Performance out the wazoo, and looks to make you nearly cry (in a good way) it definitely will take the gold medal for this silver well constructed piece of truck bling.
