Description for GMC 100 1950
You already know driving a 1950 GMC 100 pickup is alluring and distinctive. But when you add in bold yellow paint, a four-speed manual, and other upgrades, all for a value price, well then the interesting just got irresistible.Refinished in bright yellow, this oldtimer has a nice dose of cool. GMC's take on the red hot 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. But even with bright paint and even bright chrome, this GMC doesn't lose its vintage appeal. The alligator hood, all the correct badging, and the real wood truck bed are what a '50s GM pickup are all about.This GMC was restored in 2010, and that's why the bench seat, door panels, and rubber mat look authentic, but they feel many decades fresher. The interior is still working-class all the way, and that's all part of the vintage truck appeal. You sit in the truck's big airy and open cabin and instantly are connected with a time when they knew what it meant for a hard day's work. You get to connect to a bygone era every time you grab the three-spoke steering wheel and gaze at the large original gauge package.Under the hood is a 235 cubic-inch inline six. It's an upgrade in displacement over what was available in 1950 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 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. It gives this tough truck a much better defined powerband that will get up better from stoplights AND make highway speeds more manageable. Plus, Dunlop radial tires, front sway bar, and power brakes all add comfort and control to the vintage experience.Here's a distinct vintage pickup with all the right features and a value price. Great deals are still out there, but you just need to be quick enough to grab one like this when you see it. Call today!!
