BELIEVED ORG 305 V6, 3SPD MANUAL, CLEAN IN/OUT, SOLID AND HONEST, AFFORDABLE!
This 1960 GMC C10 has that attraction where an honest day's work meets intricate detail and style. It's the kind of appeal that comes from a real truck that can be put to real use, but still turn heads no matter at a cruise-in or a hardware store run.
The bold jet-pod styling of the new 1961 GMC trucks is now a thing of legend. The body has a wraparound crease that proves the '60s were a great time for designers even at GM's truck division. You can see all these details today thanks to great care with the sheet metal. The bright green and white paint represents the era perfectly, and it also is a great completing color to the wood in the truck bed. This one is a complete package right down to the cool "V6" badge on the front fenders, which is an important piece to a 1960 GMC (but more on that shortly.) In fact, only the wheels are not part of this period-correct package. But it's great to have the late-model GMC factory 17-inch units that allow for more modern tires and a smoother ride.
This pickup keeps its workman attitude on the inside, but there's also room for some nice period-correct flair. For example, the green and white of the exterior is repeated on the two-tone bench seat. Pickups from the 1960s didn't come adorned with a long feature list, and that actually adds to the GMC's charm. This is part of an era where its heater was a valued option because it gave you a chance to warm up on your way home from working the day in the outdoors. Those are the kinds of things you think about from this truck's big airy and open cabin. You get to connected to the all the workmen that came before you the moment you feel the grooves in the factory dual-spoke steering wheel. And so you're connected bygone era every time you go down the road.
GMC invested in one of the first mass-produced V6 engines, and 1960 was the inaugural year. With 305 cubic-inches inside, it has V8 levels of horsepower and the column-mounted three-speed manual really helps you move this pickup around town. The truck is a great representation of this unique motor. The burly V6 not only wears the correct bright red engine enamel, but also the period-correct powerplant is believed to even be original to the truck. There's plenty of work-ready ability in this surprisingly powerful V6 pickup, and the modern General Ameritrac tires help, too. But if all you want to do is cruise around town, this pickup is happy to oblige. Remember, this is also the beginning of the trailing arm rear suspension era that made these GM trucks ride much better than their leaf spring counterparts.
Here's a vintage pickup that looks great and has a story to tell. It's amazing you can get all of this for such an affordable price, and that's why we know it won't be in our showroom long. Call now!
