1973 GMC K2500 3/4 ton 4x4 "Sierra" trim

Hard to find 1973 GMC 3/4 ton 4x4.  In 73, GMC was still using the same bullet proof drivelines as the 72's.  It has the gear driven NP205 transfer case, Big Spicer Hub front end, and the 14 bolt rear end.  This is a one owner original paint survivor from the west coast, with only 118k miles.  It has a straight 99% rustfree body.  The inside of the bed and upper bed rails are exceptional for its age.  It has the typical front fender rust and some rust in the outer cab corners, but that is it.  The rest of the body and underside is 100% rustfree, including the doors, rockers, floors, cab mounts and bed.  The metal wasn't very good in the early 70's, so I don't think there is such a thing is a totally rustfree 4x4 from that era.  I included several underside shots to show how solid it is.  The rust is just on the outer panels.  All the backsides and wheel lips are rock solid.  As I mentioned the body is very straight.  It does have some extra holes for a CB antenna, and maybe to fill an extra tank mounted in the bed at one point in time.

This is a well optioned rare fancy "Sierra" model.  The original 350 runs like a watch with no smoke or noises.  It had a shudder in reverse, so I had the A/T completely rebuilt, including a new torque converter.  Other options include factory A/C, power steering, power disc brakes, tilt wheel, full gauges, sliding rear window, etc.  The truck is an excellent driver.  You could hop in and drive it anywhere.  I have personally used the 4x4 system and it works perfect.    These early models are hard to find.  Most just didn't survive, even out west.  I find very few that are worth brining back.

This is a solid California truck, but not as solid as I prefer.  I am pricing it to move it out quick.
