Description

With less than 1,300 miles on the build, this 1956 GMC 100 gives you stunning paint, distinct V8 power, and a custom V8 interior with the best well-integrated upgrades. It's such an awesome total package that we bet the most work that the real wood truck bed is going to do now is just haul home awards. This truck makes a striking first impression. After all, we just don't see as many GMCs as we do Fords of Chevys. It's distinct with the dual grille design and dual chrome front bumpers that feels more like a '50s car than a '50s truck. In fact, the headlight design looks like its borrowed from a Cadillac. And we love the artful crease that runs from those headlights all the way to the rear of the cab. It's the kind of highly stylized and premium presentation that keeps these so desirable, and also why it makes sense to invest big in a restoration. The turquoise paint is a modern clearcoat application, and since there's such low mileage on this build, it has a fresh and terrific luster in the sunlight. Plus, the addition of the white encircling the rear of the cab goes well with the white wheels and whitewall tires (including the bed-mounted spare) for a subtle two-tone presentation. All the best classic pieces are in place with a high-polish shine on the chrome and glossy real lumber in the truck bed. There's even a classic windshield sunshade. And if you do ever want to use this pretty pickup for hauling, rather than scratch the paint or the bed, you can just attach a trailer to the provided hitch. It's all part of how this one feels like there was just a little extra thoughtfulness that went into its restoration. The interior continues the vintage style, but it also integrates terrific upgrades. The two-tone turquoise and white continues on the door panels, dash, steering wheel, and upholstery. In fact, it seems like the only place that doesn't have the color is the floor. The black rubber mat has the pure classic feel, and it's hard to show dirt, so it's perfect for hopping in on whim and going for a drive. And as you look at all the features, you'll see that's exactly what this truck was made to do. For example, the bench seat not only has a newer cover done in the detailed two-tone, but it also has handy upgrades like seatbelts and a movable cup holder center console. The classic AM radio now is programmed to pick up your modern FM stations, and there's provisions for R134a air conditioning integrated under the dash (it will need servicing to blow ideally cold again.) You'll love the feel of the classic steering wheel, and beyond that, there are upgraded readouts that have a crisp presentation to keep you fully informed. There's an overall quality feeling here, right down to the fundamentals, including the clean glass, pliable weather-stripping, and the ease at which the doors open and close. Under the hood is more of the thoughtful investment. The engine bay has a clean look with nice details, like how the engine block and valve covers are painted to match the exterior. This is the 316 cubic-inch V8. It debuted for 1956, and this is even a year-correct block. And what's really cool is that the Pontiac air grabber on top is a nod to where GMC borrowed the motor from within the GM family. One piece that isn't vintage is the Edelbrock four-barrel carburetor that helps add power and consistency. It makes for a nice powerhouse that's part of a solid cruising package. This restored truck still gives you that cool/classic ride, but now the experience is enhanced with a three-speed automatic transmission, power steering, power brakes, and front discs. This is a great classic pickup that has a pure vintage style but with plenty of upgraded comfort. It's an all-around well-done build that you know you need in your garage. Call today!
