Rare shorty GMC Sequoia 230 will have you California Groovin in the 70’s
Thanks for stopping by to take a look at our cool 1973 GMC Sequoia 230 Motorhome. It lights people up and is great to get the kids out camping or to the beach.
The “Shorty” 23 foot (230) offering from GMC was only produced by GMC for the 1973 and 1974 model years. Just 629 units were manufactured. That’s less than 5% of the 12921 total GMC Motorhome production. Over the last 50 years, few have survived.
Some say that the 23’ GMC is the best option of all. Why? Access to some California State Parks like the locally world famous San Onofre surf beach is one. Surf spots here are size limited. Parking and driving are much easier too. They fit where the big fella’s don’t. And that low center of gravity, air ride and easy step in is hard to beat.
Vintage GMC Motorhomes seem to fall into 3 categories:
The Show Queens are still rare, Loved coaches are few and far between and the vast majority fit the neglected category.
We would put this Sequoia in the Loved category. Her condition is indicative of both ultra low mileage, rare use and careful stewardship. Sold here in California new and still wearing her original Blue plates.
Here’s what we know:
A common trait among vintage motorhomes is that many of the factory options and niceties are lost to the passage of time. People remodel to their personal tastes or repair with what’s available. In the case of this GMC Sequoia, keeping her original groovy 70’s vibe was the goal.
We see these niceties in this well loved example.
Pre-Smog, stock, unmolested
Drives and shifts nice.
Drives, runs and stops well.
New Sully Airbags. Manual fill
The glass is in excellent condition.
From the Captain’s position you’ll notice:
In the Galley you’ll find:
Side Bathroom model with new shower, lighting and storage cabinets. Nicely kept. No whirlpool tub, bidet or heated towel racks.
The five place odometer shows 38370 miles. The documentation supports the mileage.
Clean and Clear California title. Registered in California and has her original California blue plates.
Please come inspect this great GMC before the listing ends. We are happy to meet you and show her off. The details contained in this listing are based on our review of the vehicle and any errors or omissions are unintentional. Please keep in mind that this is a 50 year old used car. It will need periodic attention just as any classic does. It is not new and will not be fresh and perfect like that new soul sucking Camry your Aunt Betty drives. If that’s what you are after, this is not your era, nor your car so please move on to something boring. Like a Prius.
