1955 W/ A 1958 FRONT CLIP, CADILLAC 501 V8, AUTO, POWER STEER/BRAKES, FRONT DISC

This 1955 GMC 3100 Big Window pickup is one of those trucks that people instantly fall in love with. Dressed in black, featuring a '58 Apache front clip, a desirable stepside bed, and awesome custom interior, it's a vintage hauler unlike any other. Spliced with Cadillac DNA under the hood, it's a one-of-a-kind build unlike anything we've seen before, and with a host of choice options and killer good looks, we can't seem to figure out why. Made up of various parts of a 3100/Cadillac/Apache, this pickup manages to look 100% right, thanks to upgrades at every turn.

This truck goes way beyond simple work-truck hauler, and even back in the '50s, GM revolutionized the industry with the crazy idea that workmen wanted attractive vehicles, too. So, while a lot of them were driven right into the ground, this handsome pickup received a rather interesting rejuvenation that includes a few skillful custom bits and a lot of professional work to make it smooth and shiny. The '58 Apache front clip fits flawlessly and blends into the rest of the Task Force truck like it always belonged, while the custom bed out back is more luxury lounge than workhorse. Fit and finish are fairly good overall, although this ... Please ask for the full description.

1955 W/ A 1958 FRONT CLIP, CADILLAC 501 V8, AUTO, POWER STEER/BRAKES, FRONT DISC

This 1955 GMC 3100 Big Window pickup is one of those trucks that people instantly fall in love with. Dressed in black, featuring a '58 Apache front clip, a desirable stepside bed, and awesome custom interior, it's a vintage hauler unlike any other.

Made up of various parts of a 3100/Cadillac/Apache, this pickup manages to look 100% right, thanks to upgrades at every turn.

This truck goes way beyond simple work-truck hauler, and even back in the '50s, GM revolutionized the industry with the crazy idea that workmen wanted attractive vehicles, too. So, while a lot of them were driven right into the ground, this handsome pickup received a rather interesting rejuvenation that includes a few skillful custom bits and a lot of professional work to make it smooth and shiny. The '58 Apache front clip fits flawlessly and blends into the rest of the Task Force truck like it always belonged, while the custom bed out back is more luxury lounge than workhorse. Fit and finish are fairly good overall, although this truck has been driven and enjoyed for a few years since the build was completed, so the shiny black paint is not without imperfections. It's a driver, but it comes by all its flaws honestly – wearing them as proof that the former owners simply loved taking it out in the streets on a regular basis. A bright chrome grille and bumper was fitted up front, while a custom louvered tailgate anchors the rear, just above that cleverly intergraded rear bumper that was swapped-in from a G-Body El Camino. And who can argue with how cool this Big Window looks? The windows were given a dark tint to accentuate the street rod stance, and the bed was fully rebuilt with lightly varnished wood, polished stainless rub rails, and super-cool interior walls lined with durable, custom vinyl panels that look like they were borrowed from a vintage Rock-and-Roll club.

With the original truck sporting plain vinyl, rubber, and steel interior materials, the custom makeover inside this GMC gives it a much flashier, edgier demeanor. A reshaped and very comfortable bench seat has been wrapped in the same red vinyl-and-chrome button patterns found on the bed walls, and when matched with the chrome accents on the seat frame, door panels, and dash, sitting in the cabin feels like putting on a rockabilly leather jacket. Black carpets and heavy-duty mats help control noise and heat and the door panels are all steel and chrome. The dashboard, even when it was stock, was striking in a pickup truck and has now been upgraded with a chrome gauge cluster filled with black-faced Mallory instruments that keep an eye on the big Cadillac motor under the hood. Speaking of Cadillac, a vintage Caddy steering wheel was transplanted inside and mounted atop a tilt column, and it's joined on the dash by a retro Kenwood AM/FM/Cassette stereo and equalizer set-up, along with an underdash A/C unit below. There are signs of use inside, and frankly a nice detail would probably go a long way in improving aesthetics, but as far a comfort and character, you won't find much better in a vintage pickup.

The engine is a transplanted 501 Cadillac V8, which was swapped-in along with a Cadillac automatic transmission, giving this truck a unique, powerful, and very smooth drivetrain. Topped with a Holley 4-barrel carburetor, an Accel HEI ignition, Edelbrock air cleaner, and chrome valve covers, the block practically looks like it belongs, and although it's a bit grimy things like the steel-braided hoses and big aluminum radiator show that this truck was built to be driven and enjoyed from Day 1.Backed by a TH400 3-speed automatic transmission and a heavy-duty 12-bolt rear with relatively friendly gears inside, it's a superlative highway cruiser. Up front there's a modern front clip upgraded shocks, a sway bar, power disc brakes and power steering, while out back there are heavy-duty springs and Monroe shocks, while a custom dual exhaust system with chambered mufflers sounds wonderful. The stance is just about perfect, with a lot of the credit going to the TrueSpoke wire-wheels and 225/70/15 BFGoodrich T/A white-letter radials all around.

Built very with an interesting list of ingredients, this '55 GMC is for the classic car lover that loves to drive. Call today!
