1996 GMC Sierra

Following the success of the “square body” Chevrolet pickup, General Motors needed to come up with something really great to replace it. Working off of what GM knew consumers wanted, the GMT400 was born. An instant hit with buyers, the GMT400 proved to be a very adequate square body replacement and many can still be seen putting in the daily work of a truck. In recent years, they've developed an enthusiast following much like the square body did.

This example is just about as well-preserved as they come. As common as these trucks still are, clean and low-mileage examples are now highly sought after. With most GMT400s beaten and battered these days, finding one with under 100,000 miles is quite a feat. Finding an example with less than 50,000 miles is more impressive still, and finding one with under 10,000 miles is just about unheard of. This 1996 GMC Sierra K1500 is equipped with the Z71 package, and has what is believed to be 8,863 actual miles.That's not a typo! We were skeptical too, but the Car Fax verifies it as well! This truck has just under 9,000 actual miles. What's more, the condition of the truck backs up the mileage claim, 100%. There is nothing bad to be said about this vehicle, and all of the “usual” damage and wear areas are in excellent condition.

The exterior is nearly perfect, with no damage, rust, or even normal wear. This truck has seen such minimal use, that it would be hard to have gathered the normal battle scars. Even the bed is nearly immaculate! There are, of course, some scratches here and there—after all, it is a truck and the bed sees the most abuse. The previous owner has had a rubber bed mat and tailgate cover in place for a long time, likely since the truck was new. These accessories have also helped keep the bed in excellent condition. Minor blemishes aside, this Sierra must be one of the lowest mileage GMT400s there is and certainly one of the best preserved.

The interior also reflects the mileage claim and is certainly a testament to the minimal use and extreme care this truck has seen. The seats have no obvious wear on them, and neither they nor the carpet has any damage or stains. The original radio is still in place, and the dashboard is in perfect condition. Though some plastic pieces show some age, nothing seems to show wear. Additionally, this truck is equipped with the fold-down center console allowing the operator to have either an armrest or a full bench seat.

Under the hood is the original Chevrolet 305 V8. The engine and bay are perhaps the most obvious testament to the condition of this truck, with mostly original parts still in place and no cosmetic damage. This truck runs like a new truck, as it should, given the mileage.

This is a vehicle that the pictures tell the whole story. What you see in the photos is what it looks like in person! This truck is truly a survivor and is simply immaculate. If you missed out on purchasing a brand new short bed K1500 in the 1990s, here's your second chance!

Dealership is not responsible for any errors, omissions, or inaccuracies contained in information provided by third parties. The majority of these vehicles are considered classics or antiques, meaning they are older vehicles with sometimes dated automotive technology. We are not an expert in the construction, engineering, finishes, materials or components of these vehicles. Our employees are a team of talented individuals with a history in the classic car industry. We perform an extensive visual inspections on all vehicles we represent, but we do not disassemble vehicles or components for inspection purposes and therefore it is always possible there is hidden damage that is not readily apparent.

Dealership and its affiliates shall and will make every reasonable effort to disclose any known defects associated with a vehicle prior to the close of sale. Dealership assumes no responsibility for any repairs needed to the vehicle and it's the buyers sole responsibility for any repairs that might be needed.

If marked "Numbers Matching" or "Original Mileage", the consignor(current owner) states this vehicle as such. Given how easy it is to create a “clone” or “tribute”, we cannot guarantee the authenticity of any and all claims. Customer is encouraged to verify this information on their own, prior to purchase.

We can assist you in delivery through our network of private and commercial carriers most of which can deliver the vehicle to your driveway. We assume no responsibility for damages or delays incurred once a vehicle is in a shipper's custody.

Because we advertise each vehicle with so many third-party affiliates, it is the customer's sole responsibility to verify the accuracy of the price with the dealer. All advertised prices exclude local, state, government fees and taxes and dealer documentation fee. Pricing is subject to change without notice. A dealer documentation fee of $250 will be added to the purchase price at the time of sale.

Vehicle availability is not guaranteed and subject to prior sale. Regardless what is agreed to verbally, we cannot guarantee a vehicle will be held for a potential buyer without a non-refundable deposit collected to hold the vehicle. Contact the dealership about pricing to place a deposit on a vehicle.

Our preferred and most secure form of payment is a bank wire transfer. We can accept checks, but note that any form of a check will have a minimum hold of 10 business days. This includes cashier's checks, certified checks, or bank checks of any kind. For cash received in the amount of $10,000 or more, we will complete an IRS Form 8300. We can not accept any credit card as payment or partial payment for a vehicle under any circumstance.
