A strong crate V8, A/C interior, four-wheel disc brakes, and so
much more make this an outstanding classic. And when you can get it
in the more distinct 1971 GMC Sprint packaging, you know you have
an all-around winner.
The GMC Sprint was a great way to get the look of an El Camino in a
more distinct and truck-ready badge. Not only are they a rarer
sight today, but also 1971 was the first year for the Sprint name.
But it's not just history that makes this one grab attention. There
was a solid investment in this GMC with nice body panels, bright
chrome bumpers, and a distinctive deep green metallic paint. And
speaking of the paint, even the bed was done in a deep green
protective liner paint. There's a great upgraded look with the full
silver sport stripe package that also coordinates with the silver
lower section. This was all clear coated over to give it a good
look of quality. Plus, those SS-style stripes also go with the
upgraded sporty look with the power bulge of the cowl hood, hood
pins, SS grille, large dual exhaust tips, and Rally wheels.
Just like the El Camino, the Sprint shares a lot of Chevelle DNA
inside. So the seat, dash, carpeting, and door panels all benefit
from having comfortable car-like roots. And the presentation shows
they invested time and money to make this look clean and
comfortable. It's a driver's environment that starts with the
wood-rimed sports steering wheel mounted on a tilt column. It gives
you an excellent view of the sporty round gauge cluster that even
includes a tach. The rest of the dash is oriented around the
driver, and so it's an easy reach to some nice features. This
includes a retro-style AM/FM digital tuner stereo and the factory
air conditioning controls now blow cold with R134a refrigerant.
Under the hood is a younger crate V8. This 350 cubic-inch motor is
a strong runner that features four-barrel carburetor and a
glasspack-style dual exhaust. The V8 fires up nicely and the
three-speed automatic transmission with shift kit shifts smoothly
and confidently, so you know this is an upgraded GMC that's made
for hitting the road. In fact, this is built to be a solid
all-around driver. That's why you have power steering, modern
cruising tires, and the superior stopping power of four-wheel power
This is the distinctive Sprint that already has all the features
you want. An all-around stunner like this is always desirable, so
don't miss your opportunity. Call now!
