This is a very special professionally-restored 1979 GMC K/25 3/4-ton factory 4x4 pickup with the high-line Sierra Classic trim package, AND the Camper Special heavy-duty performance package... you would be hard-pressed to find another like it. Read below for full details, and call Tim at 360-936-9257 with any questions. I will need to speak with you prior to accepting any offer through eBay. You may also visit my restoration shop Rose Lane Restorationsto see more images of the truck. I reserve the right to end the auction early as I have the truck listed locally as well.

This is another one of Rose Lane’s outstanding restorations; a beautiful 1979 GMC K/25 Camper Special factory 4x4 3/4-ton pickup with the top-of-the line High Sierra trim package.

The flagship of the General Motors line, this gorgeous GMC is a pleasure to behold. She was fully disassembled to facilitate the professional restoration, and the detail shows. She is arguably as pretty as when new in 1979. The truck began as a rust-free, one-owner 128k original-mile truck. The truck was fully disassembled, including removing the engine, interior, glass, all weatherstripping, bumpers, trim, lights, etc. The body panels were aligned and massaged to better-than-new condition before the high-end 2-stage base/clear paint in factory Medium Brown Metallic and Ivory color was applied... the paint is gorgeous, and the paint quality literally better than new. I am not exaggerating when I say that in my opinion the truck appears virtually as-new with better-than-new finish quality. New 265/85/16 M&S Radial tires mounted on freshly powder-coated factory rims and original GMC dog dish hubcaps give the truck just a tad of attitude, while retaining the plush stock suspension, ride quality, and factory appearance.

This is a high-end restoration that will make her new owner proud, and turn more heads than a brand-new $65k Chevy! Finished in the rarely-seen factory Medium Brown Metallic and Ivory paint colors, she to be one of the most beautiful General Motors 4x4’s in existence. I own a professional restoration shop, and can tell you this truck would literally have cost over $40k to build (after purchase) to this level at most contemporary shops...

As you can see, the truck is absolutely amazing, and a vehicle you will be proud to own and enjoy,

Clear title in hand, matches VIN exactly for inspection and export. GENUINE factory 4x4, not a build or conversion.

While every effort has been made to describe the vehicle as accurately as possible, it is in fact a 40-year-old classic, and therefore being sold as-is, without warranty or guarantee expressed, written, or implied. The truck is gorgeous, but is not a new vehicle, not flawless or perfect, and can be expected to have minor flaws and minor issues associated with a vehicle of this era.

Please be ready to make payment in full within 3 days of auction’s end via deposit into my Bank of America account, or bank wire transfer

Shipping is the full responsibility of the buyer; I own a classic car restoration shop and can recommend a reliable and affordable broker who I have used many times... ultimately the choice must be yours alone. Finally, I can build you anything you like. See more at roselanerestorations.com for images of the build in progress, etc.

Feel free to call me (Tim) directly at 360-936-9257 with any questions you may have, and thank you for your interest!
