This 1964 GMC 3/4 Ton Pickup C1000 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 extra-duty pickup that could be
put to real use, but really, it's best purpose today is turning
heads no matter at a cruise-in or a hardware store run.
The bold GMC styling of this era 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 sheetmetal. Plus, this
has a thorough two-tone presentation. The blue is part of a more
recent respray that gives it a good gloss in the sunshine. It's
joined by a detailed white package on the bumpers, grille, and cab
roof. And we especially like the white upper portion of the bed
that seems to connect directly to the streak of white running up
the front of the truck. It's such a detailed package, that even the
extra-duty 8-lug wheels are part of this white accenting. But the
finish of the paint and the wood used in the bed is left in the
kind of condition where this pickup doesn't need to be afraid to
get to work. You even have nice extras, like liner paint on the bed
walls and a trailer hitch on the rear bumpers. So this 3/4-ton
truck can still pull real duty while promoting your business or
just be a genuinely useful classic for household chores.
This pickup keeps its workman attitude on the inside, but it still
does it with class. Items like the seat, door panels, and rubber
floor mats show signs of a fresh investment. But they're all
period-correct kind of pieces so that you never lose the vintage
atmosphere. The grippy dual-spoke steering wheel, clean dash, and
factory gauges are all part of a package that's pure nostalgia.
The cool "V6" badge on the front fenders clues you in to what's
under the hood. GMC invested in one of the first mass-produced V6
engines for the 1960s. With 305 cubic-inches inside, it's got V8
levels of displacement and power, and the column-shifted
three-speed manual really helps you take full control over it all.
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 details are nice, right down to the GM valve covers. This even
has a new radiator, hoses, and upgraded to a 12-volt alternator. So
you have a well-respected drivetrain that makes for a strong and
Complete with owner's manual, it's amazing you can get such a
distinctive truck for such an affordable price. That's why we know
it won't be in our showroom long. Call today!!!
