1980 GMC 1/2 Ton Grande Sierra 350 V8 from North America


Great truck and very reliable vehicle


The heater core was gone as purchased.

Poor acceleration for a 350.

Bad on gas.

General Comments:

Good ride, comfortable seats, and excellent steering.

2wd makes winter interesting!

Will be putting a new exhaust system in to see if I can boost the mileage higher than 15mpg.

Best for towing or hauling; once had a load of metal that pushed the rear lower than the front, yet still got the same mileage!

Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes

I had a 1980 GMC which I loved, except for the as mentioned fuel economy. That review matches my experience word for word!
