1972 GMC Sierra Survivor With Factory AC!

Over the last few years, the Chevy/GMC C/K series of trucks has become more and more popular. In fact, some aftermarket parts distributors say they’re selling as many products for these trucks as they are for cars like the Mustang and Camaro! That means parts are cheap and plentiful, which is always a plus for anyone interested in keeping an older car or truck on the road. Fortunately, this 1972 GMC C10 seems to already be in very good overall condition, and it can be found here on eBay in Valley, Alabama with bidding already over $8,000 and the reserve met.

The seller has carefully maintained this C10 over the years. 1972 was the last year of the “Action Line” series that began to include creature comforts and design cues to take these from just a work truck to more of a personal vehicle, and this example has 2 tone paint and woodgrain inserts as part of the Sierra trim level package.

This C10 comes with the 350 engine and TH350 3 speed automatic transmission, a very popular combination. The seller says that the engine runs strong and smooth with no smoke or noises, and he wouldn’t have any hesitation to take this on a long trip. The engine only has some surface rust visible, and while the photos aren’t high resolution, I don’t see any other major issues. A big bonus is functional factory A/C! It still runs on R12 and blows cool (not cold) so it may take a little bit of work to get it back to 100%.

The interior is clean, although not original. All lights and gauges work except the temperature sensor.  You can see an aftermarket steering wheel, and headliner and seats have been replaced at some point as well. If this were mine, I’d probably bring it back to the original look, although having that center console and cupholders would be convenient too.

There are only a couple of minor rust spots on the body, in easily accessible areas, plus one large spot in the bed. Fortunately, most of the pictures included of the underside of the truck don’t seem concerning, and the seller also mentions that common trouble spots like the cowl and cab corners are still solid. I like the color combination, the simple chrome trim, and the red wheels. It makes this truck stand out a bit. If this truck were yours, would you keep it as is, or would you take it back to its factory look?
