1959 GMC 100 --

Unique, powerful, and comfortable, this 1959 GMC 100 is the classic pickup that has all the right investments. So take a look at everything from the big block power to the A/C interior, and you'll discover an all-around worthwhile classic. This truck makes a striking first impression even before you see all the custom work. 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 then you start to see the custom pieces. For example, take note of the artful crease that runs from the headlights all the way to the rear of the cab – they even laid down a line to emphasize it as part of the custom pinstriping package! The same goes for the tall hood and well-creased fenders. Plus, the lowered suspension, polished wheels, and hard tonneau cover give this a smooth/slick appearance that tells the world this truck is fast. Inside is an interior nicely updated without losing its vintage flair. The exterior red returns on the classic steel dash and steel ribbed doors. But now it's joined by a comfortable tan on the cloth seats, door inserts, and carpeting. A truck like this is meant to share with others, and they'll stay comfortable with nice upgrades like the AM/FM/cassette stereo and cold air conditioning. But the best treats are reserved just for the driver. You get a grippy Lecarra sports steering wheel, and beyond that is a full Dakota Digital gauge package. This truck was built at the beginning of the V8 era, but it never received anything as wicked as this. You're looking at a 454 cubic-inch big block. It looks nice in the engine bay with its bold orange paint, polished air topper, and Mickey Thompson valve covers. But what you'll really love is that it inhales deeply from a big Edelbrock 750 CFM four-barrel carburetor. And it exhales with authority as headers added even more power as they contribute to the rumble of the dual exhaust. You need to get this power to the ground properly, and so there's a strong TH400 three-speed automatic transmission that feeds a stout Ford 9-inch rear end. There's also traction bars and wide rear rubber to make sure you bring power to the pavement. But even when just cruising, the power steering, cruise control, and front disc brakes make this truck an easy choice. Distinct and powerful, this GMC gets it right. So don't let this deal slip away, call today!!!
