GREAT AMERICANA, BELIEVED ORIG 228 INLINE 6, VERY SOLID, RUNNING/DRIVING ORIG
Since it's becoming harder to find General Motors Advance Design pickups, getting a GMC version is a true rare discovery. Best of all, this 1952 GMC 100 is a road-ready driver.
Take a real close look at this one. It has great two-tone turquoise and white color combination, and there's even some hints of chrome on the bumpers, on the big G-M-C above the grille, and surrounding the headlights. It has an overall appearance that looks bright from across traffic, and once you get close you can see the paint looks very period correct. Now look at the truck bed. That wood has been perfectly worn from many hard days of work. See how this truck tells a story? You might have spent a full day in your office, but the moment you come home and go for a pleasure cruise in this pickup, everyone will assume you've just put in some serious manual labor. This truck creates an instant narrative that is perfect for everything from attracting car show judges, to even adding some history to your business.
The interior is still working class all the way, but that's all part of the vintage truck appeal. The brown vinyl on the bench seat and door panels adds a hint of sophistication to go with this truck's industrial toughness. A rubber floor ma,t 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. There's even the original style radio to show off, which would have made this GMC downright deluxe 64 years ago.
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 orange block looks great in the engine bay, especially next to the oil bath air cleaner. 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 is rarer. Now all you need to do is decide if this is your perfect turnkey workman ride, or your next great upgrade-able restoration (or both!!!!) Call today!!
