This 1959 GMC 100 is a complete rotisserie restoration with just over 100 test miles on it. It’s built as a mild resto mod using a ‘73-’87 4x4 frame, transfer case, and differentials. Power comes via 355 SBC hooked to a 700 R4 transmission.
The entire truck has been down to bare metal throughout including the undercarriage and frame. The frame has been refinished in all-new GM black and after that, all of the suspension and brake components were rebuilt. The body of the truck has all-new bodywork, and a nice two-stage paint job done in high-end Glasurit paint. The truck has a highly detailed engine compartment with the same beautiful paint, and the wood bed features all-new panels and new hardware as well. All of the chrome is new, and all of the stainless is redone.
The truck rides on steel 6 lug wheels with new BFG All Terrain TA tires. All of the steering components and suspension components have been rebuilt from front to rear on the truck. Also new are all the lines and hoses.

For the Chevy/GMC enthusiast looking for a very well done 4x4, this truck is a lot of fun!
Panel trucks have been around for over a century, and they are relatives in many ways to the sport utility vehicles that have become so abundant on modern roadways. The idea behind the panel was to provide secure cargo-carrying capacity with a fully enclosed body. Ford was an early pioneer in the movement, and one […]

The Video of the Day travels to Clinton, Mississippi, with Mobile Instinct to rediscover Jackson International Speedway, once the fastest half-mile in the world, but abandoned since 1986. “Sad to see it in this condition however I’m also glad it wasn’t bulldozed for a new shopping center,” we learn. “This abandoned racetrack sits in the […]

You know that Fox-body Mustangs are hitting it when hoon-meister Ken Block looks into turning one into a wildly original custom gymkhana car concept. Ford was looking ahead when it introduced in 1984 a different kind of performance Mustang, powered by a turbo/intercooled 4-cylinder engine. The Mustang SVO was immediately identifiable by its double-decker rear […]
A delightful story arrived in my inbox recently. Headlined “The six weirdest places F1 has raced,” it was written by Ben Miles and published by Goodwood Road & Racing, and if you haven’t signed up for the British circuit’s newsletter, you’re missing some great (oh-how-I-hate-the-word) content. Those six weirdest places in Miles’ mind were a […]
