1955 GMC Other Big Back Window Additional Info:

Beautiful, custom, powerful, and affordable – this 1955 GMC 100 pickup is everything you want in a vintage and attention grabbing pickup, right down to the crate V8 and overdrive transmission. This truck makes a striking first impression. After all, we just don't see as many GMCs as we do Fords of Chevys. Plus, the dual grille design and dual chrome front bumpers is the kind of true style that feels more like a '50s car than a...'50s truck. And we love the artful crease that runs from the headlights all the way to the rear of the cab. You see this particularly well, because the red paint is a more modern application that has a terrific gloss in the sunlight. Plus, the addition of the white on the top of the cab not only adds a nice two-tone, but also emphasizes the desirable big rear window option. And while this has a great vintage presentation, right down to the tailgate, this classic is also ready to keep working. The tonneau cover is a nice way to keep this truck looking good while concealing a bed that's not afraid to get dirty. And the upgraded rear bumper has wide steps and a trailer hitch. Inside continues this blend of vintage pieces with the right upgrades. The exterior red returns on the doors and dash, and they even added dash of white on the doors to match the exterior two-tone. And with the wraparound windshield and back window, the feeling inside is bright and airy. The seat has been upgraded to a more modern bench that includes extra padding and comfortable cloth inserts for where you sit. The radio has a retro look, but it's a modern AM/FM digital tuner. And the tall Lokar shifter is a nice upgrade that doesn't look out of place. You'll slip behind the classic big GMC wheel, and it gives you a terrific view of the upgraded full AutoMeter gauge panel with large speedo and tach. But the best upgrade is under the hood. While '55 was the beginning of GM's small block era, you have something larger and fresher under the hood. This one has been upgraded to a 350 cubic-inch crate V8. The bold orange motor looks good radiating from within the dark engine bay, but more importantly, it has all the right investments you want. This includes newer belts, good hoses, and an aluminum radiator. The V8 inhales deeply from a Holley four-barrel carburetor, and it exhales with a sweet sound out of the dual exhaust. So you have the power you want in a truck, and the rumble you love in a good classic. In fact, as a true driver, you get some terrific upgrades like front disc brakes and a four-speed automatic transmission with overdrive. Complete with maintenance records, this is a great classic pickup that has the look and features to be the ideal mix of fun and versatile. So when all if this is also so obtainable, you know you need to hurry on this deal. Call today!!!
