1959 GMC 100 custom cab
All original fully factory optioned 1959 GMC 100 v8 big back window half ton for sale. This is one super rare truck, and was the most desirable truck in its production year as it came with all the bells and whistles. The long box made it even more sought after as potential buyers put a premium on payload when it came to trucks back then.
The truck is in excellent working order, there is nothing left to do and is currently plated and being driven often. It’s a California truck that was brought up here two years ago so the body is in great shape with only a couple small spots of surface rust. The paint is good driver quality. Truck cruises down the hwy at 65 miles an hour no problem, great gearing and rear end ratio for cruising speeds.
This truck is perfect for anyone that is wanting to do some type of hauling work/labour with an old truck and would make an excellent company truck for advertising. Alternatively, it is also well suited for anyone looking for an old truck that would prefer the luxury amenities of that time for an easier and more comfortable ride while still maintaining the “original” feel. It's always nice seeing people's faces when you tell them that a truck came with power steering back then.... most people can't help but appreciate the special identity this truck has and as an owner that's something I always enjoy when it comes to a vehicle.

I have owned a handful of these 55-59 GM trucks and this is the best overall truck that I have come across. The rare options are valuable and make it quite unique. That being said, I have too many trucks right now so some stuff has to move and I'm too attached to a couple others for sentimental reasons.
This truck is being sold as is. I have represented the current condition of this truck to the best of my ability. Buyer responsible for shipping but I will help with the loading. I need the space so I cannot store the truck for very long (no more than a month)
This truck is also for sale locally so I reserve the right to end the auction at any time.
I am a truck guy and love talking trucks, so if you have any questions please feel free to contact me. Garry 613 225 6382
