1950 GMC Series 150 Â¾-Ton PickupFourth year for the New Design Series Partially restored truck Black exterior with original brown interior Extensive body and paint work 228 CID OHV inline six-cylinder engine Four-speed manual transmission Side-mounted spare tire 25-inch wheelbase
Debuting a full year before its new cars, General Motors unveiled its new, post-WWII pickups on June 28, 1947. Here at MotoeXotica Classic Cars, we are proud to present one of these New Design Series trucks, a 1950 GMC Series 150 Â¾-Ton Pickup.
This truck has been nicely restored. Its black exterior is in overall very good shape with a high quality repaint. The windows are clear and intact, as are the truckâ€™s lights. It rides on four Tornel bias-ply tires, size 7.50-17, at all four corners. Each tire is wrapped around red wheels topped by factory moon wheel covers. The tires and wheels look great and the red complements the black exterior very well. There is a side-mounted full-sized spare tire on the passenger side of the truck, complete with its own wheel cover.
This truckâ€™s bodywork is straight and solid, including the cargo bed, which has partial side stakes and a wooden floor. The engine bay is fairly tidy, the battery appears in very good order and the bumpers fit well to the body.
Under the hood is GMCâ€™s 228 CID overhead valve straight six-cylinder engine, mated to a four-speed manual transmission.
Inside, the truckâ€™s original brown interior shows some delightful patina and is a curious contrast to the refreshed exterior. The bench seat is in very good order. Floormats replace carpet and the headliner is in good order. The bronze instrument panel, with full instrumentation, looks great and really telegraphs that post-WWII vibe. However, the fuel gauge is inoperable. The factory, three-spoke steering wheel is present. It, the inner door panels, mirror glass and shift lever are all in good shape. This a radio delete model.
Chevroletâ€™s first major redesign post-World War II, the Advance-Design series was billed as a bigger, stronger, and sleeker design in comparison to the earlier AK Series.
The same basic design family was used for all of its trucks including the Suburban, panel trucks, canopy express and cab overs. The cab overs used the same basic cab configuration and similar grille but used a shorter and taller hood and different fenders. The unique Cab Over fenders and hood required a custom cowl area, which makes the Cab Over Engine cabs and normal truck cabs incompatible with one another while all truck cabs of all weights interchange.
While General Motors used this front end sheet metal, and to a slightly lesser extent the cab, on all of its trucks except for the Cab Overs, there are three main sizes of this truck: the half-, three-quarter- and full ton capacities in short and long wheelbase.
For 1950, telescopic shock absorbers replaced the previous â€œknee actionâ€ lever-action type. It was the last year for driverâ€™s side cowl vent; its handle is now flat steel, not a maroon knob as in previous years.
Competition to this GMC in 1950 included Chevroletâ€™s Advance Design Â¾-Ton, Fordâ€™s F-250 and Dodgeâ€™s B1-C Â¾-Ton models
This truck is currently located at our facility in St. Louis, Missouri. Current mileage on the odometer shows 89,977 miles. It is sold as is, where is, on a clean and clear, mileage exempt title. GET OUT AND DRIVE!!!
