One Owner K5 Twin: 1984 GMC Jimmy

We see the Chevy K5 Blazer an awful lot around here, but its corporate sibling under the GMC flag is less frequently spotted. This nicely preserved 1984 GMC Jimmy isn’t perfect and is far from original, but that just makes it even more suited to using as a fun driver you’re not afraid to park on the street. Bidding is over $4K at the moment with no reserve. Find it here on eBay, and located in Dalton, Georgia. 

The Jimmy has been repainted and no longer sports its original 305. A 350 resides in its place, and the seller says it runs and drives quite well. Lots of original paperwork is said to be included, such as the factory build sheet. The seller notes this Jimmy wasn’t subjected to wanton off-road abuse, and it shows. The original auto locking hubs are also still attached.

The interior looks very presentable, with a clean dash fascia and gauge. Covers over the seats may indicate torn vinyl underneath, but the seller doesn’t disclose if so. Really, there’s a lot to like inside, with the dash and door panels nicely coordinated and looking like neither item has ever been removed. The seller does disclose some rust in the Jimmy but notes it is limited to the passenger door rocker. Floors and lower body panels are said to be solid.

The back seat looks practically un-used and certainly hasn’t been exposed to years of sun exposure caused by the roof being left off for months at a time. The Jimmy seems to live up to its billing as a no-issues vehicle, with any faults fairly minor: a hole in the hood for a departed CB antenna and non-functional A/C are some of the items the seller discloses. At the current price bid, I don’t see how you can go wrong with this handsome Jimmy.

    i’ve got a couple of these, one in the same color, both loaded ’88 models.
    they represent the last of the real trucks.
    honest workhorses made of metal with a few luxury niceties.
    perfect proportions & classic stying.
    worth $10k all day?

    That’s a good looking driver. I would have to pull the goofy looking stereo speaker from the lower left of the dash, and what’s going on with the glove compartment door? Worth the money though!

    That’s a pretty nice looking rig depending on the rust situation? Rust was the demise of so many of these vehicles. The replacement of the 305 to a 350 was a big upgrade for a vehicle like this, honestly I can even imagine a 305 paired with an automatic transmission in this.

    The 350 upgrade is a huge improvement. Early 305 s were prone to camshaft rounding. I think it was around this time they were finally working the bugs out.

    I would wait to find one with the higher trim level and more options for that price.
