A vintage GMC K2500 pickup truck with a custom crew cab body has been successfully auctioned off online via enthusiast site Bring-A-Trailer.
This 3/4 ton truck left the factory as a regular, two-door GMC K2500 pickup in the well-equipped Sierra Grande trim. Oddly, the fabricator that put it together decided to use a pair of GMC K2500 front doors as the rear doors when doing the crew cab conversion, giving this truck an extremely odd appearance from the side, in our opinion. They could have simply used the rear doors off of a sixth-generation Chevrolet Suburban and gotten a cleaner, more cohesive look, but that’s all in the past now, we suppose.
Powering this pickup is a 350 cubic inch Small Block V8, which has been mildly upgraded with an Edelbrock fuel pump, intake manifold and carburetor, with power sent to all four wheels through a four-speed manual transmission. The truck also comes with a rather tall suspension lift along with air conditioning, power steering, power brakes, and dual fuel tanks for those long-distance road trips. It underwent a frame-off restoration back in 2012 and the photos appear to back this up, showing a spotless underbody with a perfect, rust-free frame and some new-looking aftermarket suspension components.
The seller of this truck, Mouse Motors in Chicago, Illinois, managed to fetch a handsome $47,000 for it. We imagine it would have gotten even more if it weren’t for the truck’s odd b-pillar and strange rear door setup, but either way, getting nearly $50,000 in exchange for an old 1970s era GMC K-Series pickup isn’t so bad. We definitely wouldn’t want to put down that much money for this oddball of a truck, but to each their own, right?
