You already know driving a 1953 GMC 100 pickup is alluring and distinctive. But when you add in bold two-tone paint, desirable 5-window body, a four-speed manual, and some worthwhile upgrades, then the interesting just got irresistible.
Refinished in bright yellow with creamy white fenders, this oldtimer has a nice dose of cool. Even the painted wheels with whitewalls get in on this full color theme. GMC's take on the classic Advance Design trucks are a great way to showcase an enduring icon with a distinctive flair. They have an instant attraction that comes from spending real time in GM's legendary design studio, and the bulldog-like grille gives them a genuine uniqueness from the Chevy counterparts. Not only does this four-bar grille shine like a mirror, but also so do the rounded bumpers and the half-moon hubcaps. Plus, the alligator hood, all the correct badging, and the side-mounted spare tire are what a '50s GM pickup are all about. And five-window cab is an icon we all love to see. But even with all this vintage appeal, the upgrade to steel in the truck bed hints that this is the classic that can still earn its keep.
This GMC was restored correctly, and that's why the bench seat, door panels, and rubber mat look authentic but feel many decades fresher. And the detail work is great with items like the GMC decal on the heater under the dash, and the three-spoke steering wheel with GMC marked in the yellow that matches the interior and exterior. Plus, because this is a truck that you're going to want to spend some time enjoying, there are some nice subtle upgrades like the cup holders and the retro-style AM/FM/cassette radio w/digital tuner. In total, it makes for a great combination of vintage and with added comfort.
Under the hood is a 261 cubic-inch inline six. It's an upgrade in displacement over what was available in 1953 without losing the iconic attitude. More importantly, these motors have earned a reputation for being tough and reliable as an anvil. While this is not an all-out speed machine, it has been given some nice upgrades to give it pep. This includes a Fenton split manifold to create a true dual exhaust. Plus, the glasspack-style mufflers on each pipe add a nice hint of bass to the vintage exhaust soundtrack. But what will really make you happy is the four-speed manual transmission. This was an option for GMCs pulling work duty in '53, and today it gives this truck a much better defined powerband that will get up better from stoplights AND make highway speeds more manageable.
This is the restored two-tone head-turner with the right features for driving and showing off. A complete package like this won't sit around long, so call today!
