This 1987 GMC R1500 has a true shop truck look and true shop truck ability. But while you'll admire the cool/classic patina style, this one proves its all-around appeal with its fuel-injected V8, cold-blowing A/C interior, and a ton of useful features.

The reason why we all love shop trucks is because of what they represent. They're workhorses that have to be kept in tune for daily tasks. This one represents that perfectly. After all, it has the logos and scripts like a pickup that was parked in front of a service station (we bet you can already see yourself creating your own shop logo for the doors.) And the patina appearance backs up that lifetime outdoors feeling. Plus, the bed has been upgraded with a steel sheet on the floor and liner paint to make it ready to haul anything home. But the bright bumpers, LED headlights, LED tail lights, dual exhaust tips, and clean billet grille give this more flair than you'd get on your average service station hauler. There's a large locking toolbox, and you can tell those 15-inch Rally wheels are new. So you can really start to see how this shop truck has been carefully crafted to be useful, stylish, and distinct.

While the exterior tries to show off some workhorse style, the interior is pure leisure time. That's because the full red package is well finished. The comfy velour on the seat, clean carpeting, and smooth dash pad give you good fundamentals. It also has the right features, like power windows, cup holders, LED lighting, and an upgrade to an AM/FM/CD stereo with Bluetooth. Plus, there's a new full air conditioning system that's blowing nice and cold. You have a grippy sports steering wheel on a tilt column, and so that makes it easy to get comfortable and get a good view of the wraparound gauge panel. And since this is such a thoughtful driver, it also wants you to go further with dual fuel tanks.

Shops take good care of their vehicles, and so this keeps that theme going with the clean engine bay. You're looking at a hardy 350 cubic-inch V8 that is backed up by fuel injection. So this one fires up as a reliable worker should. And the very straight pipes of the glasspack dual exhaust give this a terrific sound. The TH400 three-speed automatic transmission is the kind of stout piece that's great for real work. There's also power steering, power brakes, front discs, new tires, and new shocks for a solid total driving package.

Complete with build receipts, this one not only has the cool shop truck look, but also the power and features you really want. It makes for an irresistible classic GMC you need to get your hands on right now.
