Description of 1952 GMC Other 5 Window

Since it's becoming harder to find General Motors Advance Design pickups, getting a GMC version is a true discovery. Best of all, this 1952 GMC 100 is also a desirable five-window cab! Take a real close look at this one. It has great two-tone blue and black color combination. There was a solid investment in restoring this truck, so there's an extra hint of luster from a modern clear coat. In fact, with the large grille and all the GMC... lettering finished in white, this almost has a triple-tone effect. It's part of a total package that looks terrific while remaining period-correct. You see more of this in the truck bed that keeps the real-wood attitude, but the oak used for the floor and side rails is so nice, that you know it's never seen a day of work since restoration. And the details are even great, too. We love everything from custom pieces like a small LED brake light panel (so that people can really see you in modern traffic) to classic features full-size spares mounted on both sides. And speaking of the wheels, don't you just love how the color-matched steelies also have a red pinstripe to coordinate with the hub cap? The interior is still working class all the way, but that's all part of the vintage truck appeal. The two-tone brown adds a hint of sophistication to go with this truck's industrial toughness. Plus, the desirable five-window setup makes it feel bright and airy inside. A rubber floor mat and other easy to clean materials, make maintenance a snap. The factory heater was a nice luxury to warm you on your way home from the job decades ago, and now it's just a nice original piece to show off to your friends. The large three-spoke steering wheel is clean and smooth, but you can still feel decades of workman history the moment you grip it. One of the reasons why you wanted a GMC in 1952 is because their inline-six was even more powerful than the Loadmaster unit from Chevy. That makes for an interesting conversation piece when you lift the hood and see this pickup's period-correct 228 cubic-inch motor. This red block looks great in the engine bay, especially next to the oil bath air cleaner and color-matched head. As expected, this kind of classic engine has a fantastic old truck exhaust note that chugs along like a freight train. For that added touch of period-correct fun, the motor is mated to a three-speed column shift manual transmission. This GMC looks slightly different than its Chevy cousin, and it's rarer. So if you love true vintage pickups, and you're looking for the ultimate turn-key restored example, don't let this one slip away. Call now!
