1983 GMC C1500 Two-tone Brown
Texas Bonded Title, Originally from Arkansas but title was not signed correctly, so had to bond in Texas, can apply to be removed if desired.
Truck is in fairly good shape with a lot of work put into it, especially in the motor and transmission. Has been garage kept for the last 3.5 years that I have had it. Minimal rust. There is a small amount on the back fender near the wheel well (shown in the pictures), and also a bit on the roof from some damage that was done by previous owners...not exactly sure how it happened. The roof damage only impacts the exterior. Nothing is coming through to the cab.
Known issues:Gas gauge doesn't work. I believe it is the sending unit that needs to be replaced. I have the part and will include in the purchase.
Hot starts - since installing the FiTech Fuel injection that truck sometimes has a hard time starting when the engine is hot. The system just needs to be tuned properly but haven't had time to address it
Horn - installed older style GM steering wheel and haven't hooked up the horn again
A/C - works fine, just haven't tuned the FiTech to kick up when the A/C gets turned on
Only has 1 out of the original 2 fuel tanksOverall, its an awesome truck that I am sad to part with. Will be in much better hands with someone who can spend the time with it.Upgrades:
