1987 GMC R1500 1/2 ton longbed "High Sierra"

This is a hard to find, and desirable 1987 GMC High Sierra Longbed 2wd.  What makes the 87's so rare, and desirable is the fact that it is the only year that GM offered fuel injection in this classics body style pickup.  You get all the convenience of a newer fuel injected truck, in the classic older body.  This one is a 1 owner survivor, that is 100% rustfree from California, and still feature its original paint on a straight body.

It features a strong smooth fuel injected 350, and a nice shifting overdrive automatic.  It also has: Cold A/C, PS, PDB, Cruise, duel fuel tanks, factory AM/FM, Limited slip "Posi" rear axle with 3.42 rear axle, etc.  Finally, it has a new tires on the original 8" rally wheels.  The interior is also clean and original.  The bed is very straight inside. The paint and body has some minor flows, but has an awesome patina.

The best thing about this truck is the stance.  Short beds like this have been dried up for years.  Long beds have gotten real popular of late, and actually have a good look lowered down.  It was professionally lowered with all Bell Tech components including Shocks all around.  3" in the front with spindles, and 4" in the rear with shackles.  By doing it this way, it retains it's factory ride quality.  It also has nice sounding FlowMaster exhaust. 

I did a full photo shoot on this truck before we lowered it, and then retook some.  So some of the pics might show the stock wheels, and exhaust.

Most everybody who is into square body GM's wants an 87.  This is an excellent strong running and driving truck.  The suspension is tight.  The brakes stop nice.  This truck needs nothing.  I would hop in and drive this truck anywhere.  I don't have to make any excuses for it.
