Time Capsule: 1991 GMC Sierra K1500 Z71 41K Mile Survivor – Sold?

Aug 2020 | Craigslist ClassiFINDS, Truckin Tuesday

October 20th Update: We just confirmed the Craigslist ad for this car expired and with no replacement listing found, we’re assuming this car sold.  This one may have got away, but if you have your heart set on something similar, email us the details of what you’re looking for or call Rudy directly at (908)295-7330

We hate to call the baby ugly, but not only are the redesigned 2020 Chevrolet and GMC full-size trucks too big, in our humble opinion they are not good looking at all.  Factor in the over $40,000 base price for an entry-level example and you can size why the seller of this like-new 41K original mile 1991 GMC Sierra just listed in August 2020 on Craigslist in Hazelton, Pennsylvania can ask $19,995 for it.  The NADA Guides Classic Car Online Valuation Tool indicates the current “Low”, “Average”, and “High” retail value range for these trucks is only $1,976, $4,346, and $6,120, respectively.  That’s the range for typically well-used trucks, not 29 year old new trucks such as the one featured here.  Go ahead, try and order a single cab, step side bed equipped, four-wheel-drive, 2020 GMC Sierra. We’ll wait…what’s that you say? GMC doesn’t offer that configuration anymore? Right.  Even more justification for the premium requested here.

Here’s an ironic 1991 GMC Commercial we found on YouTube where the GM division brags about the high resale value of their Sierra line:

The biggest decision to make with an unused truck like this is whether to preserve it as is and keep the miles off it or start using it as a 29 year old new daily driver. Whichever path you choose, good luck with the purchase!

Here’s the seller’s description:

“Gorgeous ALL ORIGINAL GMC pickup truck. It would be hard to find one as nice. Only 41,000 original miles. 350 V/8, 4×4 fully loaded. LOOKS AND DRIVES LIKE NEW. Will NOT respond to text or email.”

Would you daily this Sierra or preserve it as a survivor?  Comment below and let us know!

    For that price he should have included a lot more information. Not a bad looking truck though
