Classic GMCs always have added distinction. That only gets better
on this 1968 GMC 1500 that has a unique color combo, true truck
appeal, and numbers matching upgraded V8. Best of all, the full
package is offered for a value price.
We like the style of a classic GMC. They always have a beefy look
of real pickups, but there's also some swagger added into the mix,
too. You see it in the flare of the fenders and the way the hood
tapers inward from the door line. So the upgrade to bold teal paint
fits with this nicely. And painting the grille and bumpers black is
a great way to stand out, too. Nothing on this is too fancy to keep
you from getting to work. In fact, you're going to really
appreciate the solid feeling this truck gives with the way the
panels line up and the doors close with authority. And while you
may like how the black paint in the bed matches the rest of the
exterior accents, it's true purpose is a durable coating to take
full advantage that a long bed pickup gives you. There's even a
trailer ball on the rear bumper.
The interior mixes the exterior teal with a tasteful gray. It's
clean, simple, and durable - right down to the rubber floor mat.
And the large three-spoke steering wheel has a terrific grip that
only the right age pickup can give you. The whole experience will
excite those who know that a true classic truck is a minimalist
experience. But there is still room for added fun with the
secondary "ooga" classic horn.
Under the hood is proper small block power. While the 307
cubic-inch V8 is numbers matching based on the factory build sheet
we have. You can also instantly see it's far from stock. It has
been upgraded with a Holley four-barrel carburetor, Weiand intake,
steel braided lines, and headers feeding a rather straight set of
dual exhaust pipes. The V8 fires up nicely and makes a nice low
rumble. It gives you good power to get the job done or just have
some fun. This GMC is for those who like a true truck experience
that also like to feel the road. It has been upgraded with a
recently rebuilt floor-shifted three-speed manual transmission.
Also those upgraded 15-inch wheels do mean you get to fit wide
modern tires for better grip.
The sale comes complete with the owner's manual and factory
buildsheet. This is a true classic truck that gives you power,
distinction, and function - all for a terrific price. Call
