This 1950 GMC 100 5-Window is a very cool pickup that has a classic style everywhere from the engine bay to the wood bed rails. But while it feels like a true '50s machine, they also know you want to show off this vintage attitude everywhere. That's why it's also a more comfortable cruiser with air conditioning, Bluetooth, a backup camera, and plenty of more added features.
<br><br> This truck was subject to a multi-year restoration that was complete in 2015. And there have even been investments and improvements since then. The result is a detailed list of over $17k spent over the last decade getting a truck to look this attractive. We even have a restoration photos book that documents the full journey. But all you need to do is take one glance to really know that there was quality work in this pickup. You see it in the way the sheet metal fits together to show off the big fender style that makes a truck like this so cool. The Candy Apple Red paint has a nice glow to it, this was part of the initial restoration, and so it shows some age after about seven years. We like how it really makes for a driver-ready style that makes it look like a real pickup. Some people may want to refresh some of the truck's wooden bed with paint or varnish to be extra glossy – that's because it's easy to get a showstopper look on such quality work. But from day one it's really about impressing with great details like the bright smoothie wheel covers, ultra-desirable five-window cab, real wood bed rails, and the bulldog-like grille gives these GMCs a genuine uniqueness from the Chevy counterparts.
<br><br> Another reason why we like the driver-ready style of this truck is that you get such a driver-ready interior. Tan is an attractive color against the exterior red, and they make sure to showcase it with details like the door tops, horn cap, seatbelts, and seat frame all in the rich color. And the plush carpeting is also done in a deep and stylish red. That carpet also is part of a more comfortable package that includes the custom bench seat, full door panels, and padded dash. And we love the Budweiser tap handle for the four-speed. This 1950 GMC even has the best in modern upgrades with cold-blowing air conditioning, an AM/FM/CD/XM stereo w/Bluetooth, a USB outlet, and a backup camera. The classic GMC steering wheel is there for a true vintage truck feeling every time you hit the road, but even the dash is now subtly upgraded with a full set of old-style AutoMeter gauges - including a large speedo and tach.
<br><br> Under the hood is a 236 cubic-inch inline-six. It's an upgrade in displacement over what was available in 1950 without losing the iconic attitude. More importantly, this was rebuilt as part of the full restoration. So it not only looks good, but it also will continue to have the robust reputation of a proper GMC. It even has the right upgrades, like a 12-volt system, a newer alternator, an electric fan, and the battery mounted in the bed's storage box. This rides on a classic truck suspension to give you the right vintage feeling on the road. But to make sure that you truly enjoy getting out there, this one has been given the right additions. This includes electric power steering, front disc brakes, and new tires in 2019.
<br><br> You're likely never going to find another truck that gives you the classic feel with such forgiving features. So if you love a true classic and a true driver, call today!
