The first generation of the GMC Sierra was notable for breaking away from the C/K nomenclature used by General Motors, referring to Big Red’s lineup of full-size pickup trucks. Spanning from model years 1988 to 2000, the original Sierra’s lifespan overlapped the introduction of the first-generation Cadillac Escalade, which was produced for the 1999 and 2000 model years. Now, someone has built a 1990 GMC Sierra that features a front end from the Caddy full-size SUV, and it’s currently listed for sale.
Complete with Cadillac badges front and rear, this 1990 Sierra is unlike any other. Right away, the first-gen Escalade front fascia gives away that this Sierra is special. However, moving around to the rear, you see a set of unique, upright taillights reminiscent to those found on vintage Caddys.
An eye-popping red paint job helps this Sierra to stand out even more, while also accentuating the stepside bed and custom tailgate. As for rollers, this 1990 Sierra rides on 20-inch chrome alloy wheels.
Not to be outdone, the interior has also been thoroughly upgraded. Intended to provide a Cadillac feel, the Caddy logo has been stitched on the seatback, while a white interior provides a striking contrast to the red exterior paint job. In addition, billet bits can be found throughout the cabin, including the steering wheel. Power windows, power locks, an AM/FM/CD stereo, and air conditioning are equipped, while a dash-mounted screen delivers a 21st century touch.
In regard to powertrain, the naturally aspirated 5.7L V8 LS1 gasoline engine provides push, while power is routed to the ground via the GM 4L60E four-speed automatic transmission. Spent exhaust fumes are expelled through a center-exit exhaust, which features Magnaflow mufflers. Additionally, tubular A-arm front suspension, power steering, power brakes, and front discs make this truck a well-rounded performer. This Sierra is currently up for sale at Streetside Classics in Atlanta.
