1991 GMC Syclone

In the early 1990s, the nastiest vehicle on the road wasn't a car, but a lowly compact pickup truck. This 1991 GMC Syclone was GM's state-of-the-art performance machine, combining a turbocharged V6 with all-wheel-drive and an impressively competent suspension to create one awesome little pickup that could show Corvettes its taillights.I don't know how the guys in engineering got these trucks through the corporate certification process, but I'm sure glad they did. The smallest, lightest truck stuffed with the biggest horsepower engine in the GM arsenal save for the ZR1's LT5 makes for one heck of an entertaining ride. The only way you could get one was in basic black, but that's OK because it looks awesome. A custom ground effects package in satin black makes it instantly identifiable, but the entire package is rather restrained in today's world of stripes and scoops and spoilers (I'm looking at you Dodge Ram SRT10). This particular Syclone still wears very, very nice factory paint, which shows almost none of the usual signs of use and age that you'd expect from a 26 year old machine. The body kit is also in great shape and shows no signs of road rash or collisions with parking curbs. Out back, the bed is almost completely unmarked (these trucks didn't have much of a cargo rating) and it's protected by a heavy-duty rubber mat and a trim-fitting tonneau cover that looks great. There are only a few signs of use, but the overall impact of this truck is as formidable today as it was in 1991. Nobody's going to mess with this little truck.The interior is in excellent condition as well, indicative of the 12,564 original miles. You got a proper driving environment, starting with a set of neatly upholstered bucket seats with "Syclone" embroidery on the head rests and red piping to show off a bit. Matching black carpets and door panels are notably nicer than the stuff in the standard S10 pickup, and a center console was almost unheard-of in a compact truck. A leather-wrapped steering wheel and a full complement of big round gauges, including a boost gauge in the tach, suggests the Syclone is very serious about performance. This one is so stock that even the original AM/FM/cassette stereo is still in the dash! Corvette owners will find the shifter looks and feels familiar, and everything works properly, from the A/C to the power windows and locks. Nice!All Syclones came with a 4.3 liter turbocharged V6 making a rated 280 horsepower, but in reality, it was well over 300. It also comes with more than 350 pounds of torque, which is what you really feel when you mash the throttle. This truck's engine has never been opened and, perhaps more importantly, remains 100% stock. You want more power, it's out there, but for the purist who wants one of those rare untouched trucks, this is the one. It has been freshly serviced and runs great, and given the durability of these powerplants, you've got years of fun ahead of you. A 4-speed automatic transmission was the only gearbox that could handle the horsepower, and it's linked to full-time all-wheel-drive, the only sensible way to get the power to the pavement. If you do it right, this thing launches like it's attached to a giant rubber band with no drama and zero wheel spin. Even today, there aren't many cars that can do the 0-60 boogie any better. Special 16-inch alloy wheels give it a distinctive look and carry 245/50/16 performance rubber all around.If you've always wanted one of these, this is the one to own. Low miles, beautiful original paint, untouched engine and transmission, and a reasonable price. I guarantee it won't be here next week, so call now!
