1981 GMC Sierra 2500 Sierra Grande Description

Private offering of1981 GMC Sierra Grande 2500 (3/4 ton) 4x4.For sale by-owner.

Truck, currently located in Calgary Alberta Canada(approximately 3 hours directly north of Montana).(Ebay does not have provision for people with multiple residences).
IMPORTANT:There are NO import/export restrictions.Please don't write to me asking what is involved with bringing this truck to the States. Answer is simple, nothing.... It requires nothing at all. It is antique status, domestic build, and free to travel.

This is a really nice running and driving truck. It sits up at a nice height with a 3” lift (new springs, new shocks),is powered by a 350 c.i.d. V-8 engine, shifted by a 4-speed manual. It’s a very sharp looking factory two-tone red in colour. It’s been a couple decades since I’ve seen another old square body like ours, in this colour combination.
This truck is equipped with factory AIR CONDITIONING. The air conditioning system has recently been fully serviced, and blows ice cold.
Best of all….
This truck has only 57,930 miles!
-No, that’s not on a rebuilt engine.-Yes, it is the original, since-new, mileage!!!

The truck is very attractive, and shines beautifully.It does however have it’s flaws:
  • The dashpad should be replaced.
    • It has large cracks.
    • A replacement can be found on Amazon, or LMC Truck
  • The passenger door panel is missing the insert trim piece.
    • A replacement can also be easily ordered from LMC Truck.
  • The seat has some seam splits on the driver’s side.
  • The tachometer does not read correctly.
  • There is some light paint chipping along the very bottom lip, under the rocker panels. No rust.
    • At one time, the truck had running boards.
  • The bumpers are brand new (from LMC Truck)but the rear needs adjusted.

I was looking forward to enjoying doing these little things but, our styles/tastes, and preferences have changed. I’ll pass it forward to the next hobbyist.

UNRESERVED:This truck is being soldUNRESERVED. Starting price is 250 dollars. Asides from helping arrange your shipping, I have no time to take 99 more pictures, or have 2-hour long conversations. I don't have time to take even 1 single solitary additional picture, then load and send it; please don't ask. It's probably a misnomer to say I don't care about price, but I am knowingly sacrificing dollars to put more emphasis on a hassle-free and quick sale. As such, I am not going to get into long drawn out discussions as to whether it's a 7.5/10 condition, or 8/10. Let's just call this a 1/10. Perspectives vary so, for ease of sale, please disregard everything else and assume this truck is an awful wreck salvage-value project vehicle, with broken exhaust, wrong tires, and is needing everything. My goal is to avoid insincere and zero-feedback bidders who will not follow through with their commitment. My other goal is to find somebody genuine, who will really appreciate this really nice truck with great potential.
Also, very important….Review our feedback please.Each is for a 30+ year old vehicle!

During our time on eBay, we've figured out2 very important things arecommunicationandprocedure. We have a little procedure.
Our little procedure focuses oncommunicationandprocedure. It goes as follows:
  • After auction, we ask for your buyer's information.
    • You supply.
  • We fill in transfer papers and scan/send to you.
    • You confirm spelling and information correct.
  • You go to your bank, and send funds.
    • We validate receipt.
  • We begin on shipping,
    • ...keeping you informed every step..
  • You receive your cool vintage Sierra Grandepickup,
  • You leave us a fabulous feedback,
We're not interested in Paypal or deposits... I realize I'm somewhat the anti-salesman and have taken intentional strides to heavily under-represent this vehicle. That's fine. Of importance to us right now is a smooth sale to a genuine buyer. If you are bidding, please be serious as I am and understand our adherence to this little system/procedure. It's to help both of us. If, for any reason, you cannot adhere to this procedure, please let us know BEFORE BIDDING. OR,....IF YOU HAVE ZERO FEEDBACK OR ARE NEW TO EBAY YOU MUST CONTACT ME BEFORE BIDDING.Otherwise, I will cancel your bid.

DELIVERY:...to most states and destinations is in the $1500+ range. Please keep that in mind. Budget for at least this amount. Texas and Florida, and other far southeastern states, are obviously a bit more at minimum $2250-ish. Any required inspections, certifications, registrations, paperwork, or anything else are the buyer's responsibility. I don't know the rules in each particular state so, am selling as per Alberta rules. My wife has become pretty good at setting up shipping and, is happy to assist. Rest is up to you. Payment is by bank transfer, US account to US account. As stated, I don't ask for Paypal. Once payment is received, everything else is ready to proceed from there. I believe putting this truck unreserved will easily make up for any shipping costs. Somebody's bound to get a heck of a deal.
PICKUP:....not really recommended. See our procedure. I'll elaborate. It’s a 35+ year old original truck. Old vehicles are unpredictable by nature. As great as I think my truck is, I’m not the seller that’ll tell you that I wouldn’t hesitate to drive it across the country. I wouldn’t personally do that, and I won’t say that. Besides….I've got 2 more vehicles to sell after this. I just simply will not risk someone being unhappy and wrecking my feedback.
CALLS:If you'd like to speak over the phone, I'm happy to hear from you. Please write and we'll make arrangements.
If you are fromOVERSEAS,please know we have shipped long distances many times. We are happy to assist. Since beginning to narrow down ourinadvertent collection a couple years ago, we've sold to England, France, Germany, Holland, Slovenia, as well as theMiddle East and New Zealand.

Ibelieve that covers everything.
Good luck and happy bidding!
