Auction Vehicle  

Vehicle Description

Known as "Truck Hole," this nut-and-bolt restoration was complete in 2018 without compromise. The pickup is black on black with a houndstooth interior. The cockpit is accentuated by AutoMeter Prestige gauges that give it that classic look built into a custom instrument cluster designed to match the passenger side. The gauges are silver and black and come to life in white at night. The brushed steel and wood steering wheel along with the polished TREMEC 5-speed shifter round out the interior. On the exterior of this 1971 GMC, the flat nose of the hood and fenders have been replaced to give it the sloped nose of the '67 while maintaining the dual headlights up front. All side markers and trim have been removed to give it a smooth appearance. It is powered by a 350ci engine bored .30 over beating to life via COMP Cams 12-242-2 Xtreme Energy camshaft. Sitting on top of the short-block are Chevrolet 64cc Camel Hump quench chambered heads with 2.02-inch intake valves. Rounding out the intake system is the RPM Air-Gap street/strip manifold. Sitting on top of that is a Holley Avenger 770 cfm aluminum carburetor. Providing spark is the Chevrolet Performance HEI Electronic ignition system and Optima battery. The valve covers give it a classic look while saving weight and providing appeal. The accessory drive is powered by a March serpentine pulley system. Cooling is provided by a Meziere electronic water pump and dual electric fans. Finally, the exhaust gasses are pumped through some Sanderson shorty headers allowing for the exhaust to remain unseen within the channels of the frame. Sitting behind the engine is the TREMEC TKO 5-speed manual transmission. The transfer of power is managed via McLeod clutch, flywheel and throw-out bearing. Pulling up the rear is a GM 12-bolt posi-traction rear end with 373 gears. The suspension system is provided by RideTech, and rounding out the corners are Wilwood drilled and slotted rotors, with 6-piston calipers up front and 4-piston in the rear, along with a Wilwood aluminum master cylinder.
