This is another one of Rose Lane's outstanding restorations; a beautiful 1979 GMC K/25 Camper Special factory 4x4 3/4-ton pickup with the top-of-the line High Sierra trim package.

The flagship of the General Motors line, this gorgeous GMC is a pleasure to behold.She was fully disassembled to facilitate the professional restoration, and the detail shows.She is arguably as pretty as when new in 1979.The truck began as a rust-free, one-owner 128k original-mile truck.The truck was fully disassembled, including removing the engine, interior, glass, all weatherstripping, bumpers, trim, lights, etc.The body panels were aligned and massaged to better-than-new condition before the high-end 2-stage base/clear paint in factory Medium Brown Metallic and Ivory color was applied... the paint is gorgeous, and the paint quality literally better than new. I am not exaggerating when I say that in my opinion the truck appears virtually as-new with better-than-new finish quality. New 265/85/16 M&S Radial tires mounted on freshly powder-coated factory rims and original GMC dog dish hubcaps give the truck just a tad of attitude, while retaining the plush stock suspension, ride quality, and factory appearance.

This is a high-end restoration that will make her new owner proud, and turn more heads than a brand-new $65k Chevy!Finished in the rarely-seen factory Medium Brown Metallic and Ivory paint colors, she to be one of the most beautiful General Motors 4x4's in existence.
