1956 GMC 100 Description

Beautiful paint, custom comfortable interior, and a powerful and reliable V8 under the hood this 1956 GMC 100 is a stunning example of how to build a classic correctly, and give it all the best driving and showing upgrades. That's why we bet the most work that real wood truck bed is going to do is haul home awards.When you build a truck like this, there's really no need for subtlety, so go ahead and paint it Star Burst Fireball Metallic. The dramatic GMC lines were a great way to usher in the stylistic '50s, and they have matured nicely over the past 60+ years. There was a nice investment in paint and bodywork, so if this was ever used as a workman, you'd never notice it here. Note the laser-straight crease that runs from the headlights all the way to the rear of the cab they even laid down a line to emphasize it as part of the custom pinstriping package! The chrome grille (almost impossible to find) and bumpers on these trucks are a big part of what make them so handsome, neatly bridging commercial vehicles and passenger cars with their design. You can see time, care, and money went into making the brightwork look this good. The bed was finished with handsome real wood and stainless rub strips, and there's the fuel filler neatly stashed under a little metal cap. HID headlights, tinted windows, an aggressive stance, and 18-inch BOSS alloy wheels all help add modern flair to this custom vintage package.Open the door to plenty more modern upgrades to this GMC. The first piece you'll notice are the seats have been upgraded to modern GMC leather buckets that are power adjustable to your perfect comfort setting. In between is a custom center console and the always-welcomed cup holders. The doors, roof, and dash have all been painted to match the modern exterior red, and there are even great upgrades like a thumpin' Alpine AM/FM/CD stereo that is also Bluetooth. But the best treats are reserved just for the driver. You get a highly stylized wood and chrome steering wheel mounted on an equally artful tilt column. Beyond that is a full set of Dolphin gauges, which look great in a classic like this, and they also signal to you that there's something special in the engine bay.Grab your sunglasses before opening the hood, because you're about to see a show-worthy shine. After all, with everything from the tubing, to battery box, to the valve covers radiating so brightly, we just about dare you to find any another component that can be polished. But when you look beyond the style, you'll see the substance of a Vortec 350 cubic-inch motor. The more modern V8 offers a great mix power and torque to be the right choice for a custom pickup like this. Plus, it has been enhanced with a Holley 670 CFM four-barrel carburetor, roller cam, HEI distributor, aluminum radiator, and new heads installed less than 100 miles ago. The motor feeds a set of Jet-Hot coated headers that connect to a rumbling dual exhaust. Power has no trouble getting to the ground thanks to a stout TH350 three-speed automatic transmission, and the grip of modern low-profile tires. But the upgrades don't end there. You have a '70s Ventura independent front suspension, power steering, and four-wheel disc brakes to keep any trip smooth and easy. And if you ever want to get anyone's attention that doesn't already have it, the extremely loud train horn setup will do!Complete with build receipts, you know what it would take to build this yourself. So instead, you can save plenty $$$, and be ready to sign up for the Power Tour tomorrow. So don't miss out, call today!
