California clean, LS swapped, rust free, patina queen, super cruising machine!
This 71 GMC is a 2500 series truck, built with the sport and custom camper designations. It came from the factory with air conditioning and heavy duty suspension. It spent the majority of its life in southern California before being driven out to Tennessee by the long time owner, then parked and left to sit. It's never seen snow or salt. The truck was purchased by me in Tennessee and brought here to the Chicago suburbs so I could build the LS-powered cruiser of my dreams.
I set out to build a turn key dependable, cruiser. One that would be as at home on the highway doing 85mph as it would hauling a load of lumber home from Lowes. After successfully completing the entire 2018 Hot Rod Power Tour, I think I'd consider it mission accomplished!
This build is only about a year old, with less than 3000 miles on it. Every system was gone through, no stone left unturned. It rides as smooth as a Cadillac and is as dependable as a brand new pick up truck. It's a 4.8L ls motor, 4l60e transmission, and a 3.55 rear end gear. Custom 30gal gas tank installed under the bed, (original dual saddle tanks are still in place). This combination is good for 18mpg+ on the highway. Ask me how I know!
Interior is fresh, with just The right amount of originality... meaning your girlfriend won't hate riding in it! The seat has been recovered and a brand new carpet kit has been installed. Custom removable arm rest with cup holders. New digital gauges in the original instrument panel.
Brakes, exhaust, and the entire suspension system, including a front end leveling kit, have all been done. Wheels are 17" take offs from a 2010 Sierra. I am not kidding around, you can hop in this truck and go anywhere you'd like, RIGHT NOW!
You may be asking yourself, if this truck is so great, so clean, so dependable, and so cool looking, why would he want to get rid of it?! I'm glad you asked! Like any good car guy, I've got other irons in the fire that are desperate for my attention. (Plus, "the boss" says I'm not allowed any new toys until I sell something!)
I have tons of pictures of every inch of the truck. Underside pics, pics of the cab when I had the interior out, etc. I am happy to answer more specific questions about the build up of the truck, but I'll warn you that I'm allergic to stupidity, so please think before you ask. Understand what is involved in building a truck like this. If you drive this truck, you will buy this truck.
