A like-new 1985 GMC Jimmy is currently listed for sale via Bring-A-Trailer and has already attracted $12,000 in bids with over two days left before the figurative gavel falls on the online auction.
General Motors no longer produces a small and capable body-on-frame SUV like the first-generation Jimmy, so it should be no surprise that enthusiasts are flocking to place a bid on this like-new example. According to the auction listing, the vehicle was purchased by the original owner at Wampler Buick-GMC in Troy, Ohio for a total price of $14,488 and currently resides in New York. This is a bit unexpected, seeing as most mint condition classics we feature here spent the majority of their time in warm, road salt-free states like Florida, so it’s almost certain that this car was stored during the colder months for the duration of its life.
With just 36,000 miles on the odometer, this 1985 Jimmy has plenty of life left in it. The current seller recently replaced the valve cover gaskets on the stock, factory 2.8L V6 engine and performed an oil change, ensuring it’s ready for a summer of road trips and cruising in the hands of its new owner. The two-tone, white and black body is in near-perfect condition, as are important factory exterior components like the bumpers, painted door handles, optional plastic rear spoiler and 15-inch alloy wheels. Interior occupants are greeted by gray cloth upholstery and a two-spoke steering wheel. Other features include air conditioning, an AM/FM stereo, a center console and various add-ons from the available Sierra Classic package, including brush metal dashboard trim.
This vehicle is offered at no reserve and will come with all original manufacturer’s literature, the original window sticker, the original purchase documentation, a clean Carfax report, and a clean Ohio title. GM fans will be hard-pressed to find a 1985 Jimmy in better shape than this, and while it won’t sell for cheap, we get the feeling this will be a smart investment in the long-term – so long as the new owner keeps it in the same near-perfect shape that it’s in now.
