This 1947 GMC Advance Series pickup is a fantastic example that has been fully restored and is a proven and reliable truck.
Originally a western truck, the solid starting point for the multi-year restoration is shown in the photos below, and was a complete, running and driving truck which had been in Northern California.
It was sent to a well-known restoration shop in Puyallup, WA, where an extensive 4 year process was started to create the prior owners dream truck.
The all steel body is in exceptional condition, with just a few minor blemishes like a stone chips, some small dings, and other flaws to show for over 4100 miles of happy motoring, but, as you can see from the multiple photos provided below, most have been touched up, and the truck presents wonderfully from every angle.
The beautiful Cream Medium finish is a factory correct color for 1947 GMCâ€™s, and the code is 7455 from Sherwin Williams Automotive Finishes. It looks shiny and beautiful, and has been carefully waxed and shined since the build was completed.
The body is solid and shows no sign of bondo, beer cans, chicken wire or anything else. It is all real steel, and judging from the trucks condition before the resto, probably original to the truck.
Glass is in excellent condition all around, with no laminate issues or cracks.
Fuzzies, regulators, and weather strip are all in excellent condition.
The window seals are in excellent condition.
Chrome bumpers front and rear, as well as the dual side mirrors, show like new, while the door handles and emblems show only light signs of aging.
Polished bright work looks incredible, and the spotlight is all hooked up and functioning perfectly!
The grill is clean, straight, and neat, and finished in soft white.
Headlights, high beams, parking lights, turn signals, and brake lights all work like they should.
Wipers work like they should.
There is a complete new wiring harness in the truck that has modern cartridge-type fuses, and has been professionally installed when the truck was completely stripped apart.
Running boards show normal marks from people using them to get in and out, and the hardware looks great.
Bed wood is in good condition, and was intended to actually be used so emphasis was put on treating it rather than polishing it. Bed straps and hardware are clean and neat, and some elbow grease and polish away from gleaming like new.
The front part of the bed has 4 rubber mounts that were used to hold a vintage Coca-Cola cooler that the prior owner had for decades. He asked to keep it, and I obliged. They can be removed as they are only held down with Â½ small screws, or you could get a real or reproduction cooler of your own to put in.
Rear of bed holds a luggage crate that is mounted to the bed with 4 screws and provides a secure place to hold goodies. Currently it holds the two gigantic binders of restoration receipts and information from the prior owners.
Bed chains are clean and functional, and the inside of the gate and mounting points look amazing too.
Steel wheels are finished in white, and show a chip or two in the paint on each, and the center caps have a nice aged patina to them as well, along with a number of dents on a few of them as shown in the photos. We liked the originality of the truck so much that we left them the way they were, but if youâ€™d like them repainted in the current white, let us know.
Tires are REMINGTON WIDE BRUTE size LT 235-85R16 at all four corners, and they have ample tread left on them.
Under the hood, the stock motor was replaced with a 1955 GMC 302cid Inline-6 to give it more power and reliability for the planned regular use the prior owner had in mind.
Receipts show the entire thing was done from the block out, and regular maintenance receipts that are quite current show it has always been maintained since completed.
Engine bay itself is clean and tidy, and shows well, especially when it comes to how nicely the wiring, hoses, and lines were run, and how neat the firewall looks.
Heater is functional in the truck, but was disconnected because it was not needed in Florida. You would need hoses and clamps hooked up.
A new radiator was installed when the truck arrived in Florida to give it more flow to handle the hot temps here, and it works perfectly. I took the truck into town last weekend on a 95 degree day, and it didnâ€™t do one thing funny.
Transmission is a 4-speed manual and shifts smoothly and cleanly through all the gears. Clutch take-up is smooth, and nice clean shifts are easy to pull off.
Chassis is clean, neat, and shows that maintenance and upkeep have regularly been done underneath as well.
NO rust or rot or issues on the entre chassis, and everything functions as it should.
Brakes are recently refreshed and stop the truck without any odd pulling or catching.
Steering is solid and has the correct amount of play and nothing more. No need to seesaw the wheel in this one, its dialed in.
The interior of the truck is VERY nice, and shows beautifully.
Bench seat was covered in a deep burgundy leatherette, and shows flawlessly, without any stains, marks, scuffs or seam pulls.
Base was moved back since the fuel cell was relocated, and it allows even taller and larger drivers ample room inside the cab.
Carpeting runs from the firewall to the back wall of the cab, and is in wonderful condition with no stains or damage. It is banded, and has a protector in place for the drivers heel.
Carpeted mats show well, and protect the flooring as they should.
Gauges are clean and neat, and all appear to be functioning properly too!
Steering wheel is exceptionally nice, as is the GMC logo at its center.
Column is painted to match, and the chrome turn signal system looks and works great too.
Center and glovebox chrome panels show wonderfully, and the glovebox is functional with a nice liner.
An aftermarket AM/FM cassette was installed, and works and sounds great!
Door panels are finished in the same burgundy material, as is the headliner, and all look great.
Shifter and E-Brake both work like they should.
Heater looks great, and the vents open like they should. It would need hooked up as mentioned above.
Dual sun visors work great, and look like new.
I am not sure what else to tell you about the truck. I would ask you to review the 190 photos, read the ad, and ALWAYS feel free to call me directly with questions.
It is a super nice pickup, and I have driven it about 60 miles since we bought it without issue.
It comes with two giant binders with tens of thousands of dollars in receipts and paperwork from the restoration, and it has been driven at least twice a week for the past year by the prior owner.
It doesn't need anything to drive and enjoy right now, and whoever gets it will be quite happy.
I took 190 photos of it from every angle I could, and I encourage you to ask questions, come see it, or arrange for an inspection if you want to PRIOR TO BUYING IT.
I don't have anything to hide, and have tried to cover every part of the vehicle as best I could.
The vehicle is located in our Fort Myers, FL warehouse, and is just 20 minutes away from Southwest Florida International Airport (RSW) if you want to fly in and see it.
I welcome outside inspection services BEFORE YOU BUY OR BID.
