This 1989 GMC Sierra 1500 SLX is a very vintage pickup with just a touch of custom flair on the outside. It also has fuel-injected V8 power and a feature-filled A/C interior. So when it's loaded, distinct, and useful, it makes for the right mix of a cool classic and a handy asset.
This was one of the first years for the new style Sierra. It set a new tone in pickups where there could be sleeker without losing any of that professional grade attitude. That's why we like finding one that looks so authentic. It's not over-the-top with a booming exhaust or flames painted on the side. Instead, the additions are tasteful with the classic Torq Thrust wheels, and the modern 20-inch size gives this a sporty style to the lowered stance and lets you fit better tires. Sleek maroon paint, bright chrome bumpers, a clean but utilized truck bed, good glass, and clean lines are all there to keep this attractive while respecting the idea of a proper pickup.
Inside is more of the well-done classic attitude. So you get a classic bench seat but you can also tell the comfy velour cover is a newer investment. Good carpeting, a nice headliner, and a smooth dash (with cover) make this inviting. What also makes this nice are the right comfort features like a tilt steering column, cruise control, and the classic AM/FM stereo with a separate cassette. Even the air conditioning is blowing nice and cold.
Under the hood is GM's hardy 5.7-liter small block, and it comes from the time when the factory was installing fuel injection from day one. This has the right look of proper upkeep, right down to the working hood light. It fires up and drives with the confidence of a well-respected FI machine. Plus, you have easy driving features like power steering, power brakes, front discs, and newer tires. This also has a four-speed automatic transmission with highway-friendly overdrive to really enjoy this one near or far.
Complete with the owner's manual packet, this is the well-presented classic GMC with the right touch of custom style. So don't miss this Sierra, call today!
