1970 gmc sierra grande longhorn bb buckets

Just got the gmc from grandpa. It is a 1970 gmc sierra grande longhorn, it is all original with all documentation. I am the third owner and it has around
70k miles. It is from california with no rust has a bigblock with th400 trans. The interior is bucket console with factory AC that blows really cold. I got it to build a short bed but now she is really gowing on me , so i think I will just restore to original. I will try to post pics.

First of all... and from Ohio. That is one sweet truck and I'm glad you are going to keep it orignal for two reasons: a) it was your grandads, b) that is a really loaded optioned truck and if you shorten it...down the road you might regret it. Like I said...very nice truck.

There is no doubt that when you are Going to a ball game, fishing on the lake in your Grandads truck...you will draw a growd.

By the way...if you have questions or need parts WES is in the Olympia WA. area. Also feel free to ask all the question you want.

That's a beautiful longhorn. I like the matching camper as well. Here's another vote for keeping it original.

Re: 1970 gmc sierra grande longhorn bb buckets

You made the right choice, that truck is too nice to part or cut down.

Re: 1970 gmc sierra grande longhorn bb buckets

Beautiful example of a Longhorn. Keep it the way it is - there's not many of them around any more, and yours could be one gorgeous truck when you're done.

I wouldn't restore it, but just change out things that are worn. True survivor type vehicles don't exist these days. Very nice truck. Trevor

WOW GREAT original truck, I hate to see you tear it down. Like was said above you'd regret it later since it was your grandpas. You don't see many like that anymore anywhere

Re: 1970 gmc sierra grande longhorn bb buckets

Thanks DeWayne for the props...
I am with everybody else on this also. I would keep it stock. It would be much easier to cut a 1/2 ton long box down than the Longhorn because the Longhorn has a 1 ton chassis.
Here is a picture of a 70 GMC Siera Grande Longhorn that I have been working on for a customer of mine. It is also loaded with options. I like the fact that the owner still uses it for what it was designed for.

I've never said anything like this on the board before because I usually say "it's your truck do what you want with it" but if you cut that thing down I will personally come to Washington and beat knots on your head... Just kidding, but do not change anything on that truck!!!! Just enjoy it.

Re: 1970 gmc sierra grande longhorn bb buckets

Don`t even change the mirrors.That truck is rare in a few ways.GMC called the 8 1/2' trucks Custom Campers,not Longhorns,but it also has the Custom Camper package available on 8' trucks as well.It`s kinda confusing.On top of that,it`s a top-of-the-line Sierra Grande which was a bit rare in any 10-30 series trucks.Then,it`s loaded with BBC,A/C,buckets/console,and on like that.All this in one of the most well liked colors.2500 or 3500?Does the fender badge sat Sierra Grande or Custom Camper?Nice truck!Super nice!

Re: 1970 gmc sierra grande longhorn bb buckets

Great truck! An amazing survivor, you should thank grandpa every time you see him! I loved my 70 Sierra Grande C2500. Mine too was big block auto but bench seat and 8' bed. I used it as my do it all truck and it was a good tower.

Leave it like it is mostly. But you MUST add disc brakes, the single best mod I did to mine. Others included JET Q-jet with electric choke, gear reduction starter, and HEI ignition.

Re: 1970 gmc sierra grande longhorn bb buckets

That is one sweet ride. My wife surprised me 10 years ago with a 71 Longhorn from a farm down the street. I was a little disappointed at first because I wanted a truck I could lower and customize but the more I drove it the more I liked it. I changed a few things to make it my own. You've got a valuable piece of Americana from a generation ago. Enjoy it!
