The first-generation GMC Jimmy is a badge-engineered variant of the Chevy K5 Blazer. This full-size SUV offered proper off-road capabilities and ample space for the family to travel around in. What we've got here isn't quite a stock K5 Jimmy, as it's received a comprehensive engine transplant. Built by Petty's Garage, this 1989 GMC K5 Jimmy LT4 has been featured at the renowned SEMA auto show and is a one-of-a-kind job. Do you want to own something unique? Here's the golden ticket.
Sporting a Ruby Red Metallic exterior, this 1989 GMC K5 Jimmy LT4 looks imposing, helped by its 38-inch General Grabber M/T tires, running boards, and carbon-fiber wrapped hard top. The imposing grille surround and bumpers are chromed, and the vehicle sits tall and proud. You can tell that some serious work has gone into the build. Head and tail lamps largely remain stock, and you'll notice some discrete badging to indicate that this isn't an ordinary K5 Jimmy. Inside, there's a color that's fittingly called Ferrari Tan, which is very apt when you consider what's under the hood. Four adults can be comfortably seated in a plush cabin that features a tilt steering column, leather-wrapped steering wheel, power windows, power door locks, a rear window defroster, a heater, an AM/FM radio, and USB ports. We also observe a Vintage Air air conditioning system in the dash, a center console with cupholders between the two front seats, and blue-knobbed levers for gear selection and transfer case operation. A 'By Petty' plaque can be found on the passenger side of the dash as well, a unique and prominent maker's mark.
This 1989 GMC K5 Jimmy LT4 packs a supercharged LT4 V8 engine under the hood that growls and snarls power to the wheels via a six-speed manual transmission and a 4.11 rear end. Power four-wheel disc brakes ensure ample stopping power, and power steering helps keep this powerhouse pointing in the right direction. You're definitely going to enjoy driving it, after all.
