This is my second GMC 4x4 with a 350 5 Speed. They are hard to come by but well worth it. Mine has 260541 miles and still runs like it just rolled out of the showroom floor. Great Power, can pull anything I need.. boat, car trailer, another truck out of the mud, props for plays, moving trailer.. no problem. with the 5 speed only had to change out the output shaft on the transmssion.. 477 bucks and back on the road. Its big and roomy and can fit 6 kids in the back and 3 in the front. I love these older truck.
GMC for Life
5 Speed Torque, Solid not tin, simply engine set up
My parents purchased this truck brand
new, and I inherited it when I turned
sixteen, after which I commenced
driving it with the crazy assurance of
any teenage boy. Although this truck
is a beast (18ft long, weighs 6000+
lbs, and with a 7.4L V8 454 it gets
terrible gas milage), it handled snow
well (once shifted into 4 wheel
drive), and my father and I used it to
pull stumps out of the ground--you
can't beat the torque. Towing two
horses and hauling a camper across the
country this truck never let us down.
The vehicle I still dream about.
Most comfortable seats I've seen in a
truck thusfar; tremendously capable
engine (the 7.4L V8 454 cu in); tough
and all-around bad-to-the-bone feel
The alternator failed twice, forcing
two tow truck experiences; gas milage
is Panzer-like; bed, without liner,
gets very scratched very quickly
This vehicle has been reliable and has
not needed many repairs, just the
normal maintenance tasks. It is set up
to be a workhorse- we hauled a cord of
wood at a time with no problems. Ride
is really nice with lots of leg and
Extra bench seat in cab for storage,
groceries, etc., is convenient.
