1976 GMC Sierra Classic – 350 V8, Auto, 2wd, A/C, Two-Tone Paint, Woodgrain Interior Trim, Very Original, New Tires, Ready to Cruise!


1976 GMC Sierra Classic – Thoroughly redesigned from stem to stern, the all-new third generation C/K trucks for 1973 proved to be the longest lived series in Chevrolet’s history and the three-box styling has proved quite popular since. Aside from wheels and hubcaps, there really wasn’t much that was round anywhere in the design other than the body sides that featured a sculpted character line with a central plateau panel as well as curved side glass, a first on a GM truck. This platform also featured GM’s first in-house built crew cab, and the Suburban finally got four doors like a normal station wagon. Chevrolet offered this cab with only a single front bench seat beginning in 1976. Called the “Bonus Cab”, it was something of a competitor to the Dodge Club Cab and Ford SuperCab. Trim lines were also revamped, ranging from the entry-level Custom to the Custom Deluxe, Cheyenne and top-end Cheyenne Super. They were shuffled for 1975, with the Scottsdale moniker replacing the Cheyenne Super as the top-of-the-line package, while the Custom series was deleted. The next year, Chevy was back up to four trim lines with the addition of the Silverado at the top of the series. By and large, this remained the trim hierarchy for the remainder of series production.

If you are looking for a very original and nicely maintained classic truck, this long bed GMC Sierra is a truck you should strongly consider. Every portion of this truck looks to be very original with exception to the roof paint. The paint, trim, chrome, interior, radio, bed, hubcaps, engine bay and even the underside all look completely original! From the SPID tag in the glovebox, you can see this truck is currently identical to how it was originally optioned 45 years ago. There is also evidence that this C10 received a Ziebart treatment when new, which would help explain why it remains very rust free today. The body is straight and the paint and chrome look as you would expect for their age. The two-tone Catalina Blue (25) with Skyline Blue (20) paint combo is iconic “mid-70s Chevrolet” and is hard to beat. We’ve had the opportunity to put about 100 miles on this truck and is really drives great. Those who have been behind the wheel of these C10s know that that long beds tend to ride a little smoother that short beds. Overall this is a great truck that you can drive daily and take to weekend shows without doing a thing to it. A complete list of features and options include; 350 V8, Auto, 2WD, A/C, Power Steering, Power Brakes, Tinted Glass, Chrome Bumpers, Chrome Mirrors, Blue Vinyl Bench Seat, Rubber Floormats, Factory AM/FM Radio, Original Owners Manual, Woodgrain Interior Trim, 15″ Factory Hubcaps, and thick 225/75R15 White Wall Tires! “Round-eye” long beds in original condition that still drive great are hard to come by and, at the appreciation rates we’ve seen recently, you won’t be able to come close to owning one for only this price in a few years. Don’t let this one get away!
