For Sale: 1968 GMC 1500 in Lithia Springs, Georgia

Vehicle Description

This 1968 GMC C1500 has a sleek two-tone, awesome wood, a houndstooth A/C interior, a crate V8, and more. It all makes for solid investments that get you an intoxicating mix of vintage and modern.

Minty green sandwiched in-between a creamy white gives this one an instant classic style. But also take some time to appreciate the details of this one. For example, the reason why a modern paint application looks so good on this pickup is that it has some timeless curves. The squared-off hood melts into a rounded fender line that runs the full profile of this pickup. And you see this so well because there has been a solid investment in this truck to erase any workman roots. Heightening its attractiveness is plenty of mirror-like brightwork on the grille, bumpers, and stylish full-length trim. And we just love the glossy real wood in the truck bed. But this one likes to announce it's more than just vintage. A set of CPP drop spindles give this a sporty stance. Plus, while American Racing Torq Thrust wheels are iconic, the big 20-inch size is pure modern flair.

The interior continues to give you vintage style with well-integrated modern upgrades. For example, the houndstooth cloth inserts in the seats are a great classic GM piece, but the whole seat has the fresh feeling of a proper investment. Plush carpeting, a smooth dash pad, and plenty of the exterior green on the metal components complete the classic truck look. What you'll also love are all the right well-integrated upgrades. This includes a retro-style AM/FM digital tuner with Bluetooth and cold-blowing R134a air conditioning. And while you have the classic dual-spoke steering wheel, it's now on a tilt column to give you a nice view of the full gauge package.

The engine bay has proper GM 350 cubic-inch V8 power. You can tell there were more big investments under the hood simply because no truck celebrating nearly half a century should look this tidy and fresh all on its own. There's quite a stock-style look everywhere from the color of the block to the detailed air grabber. But you can also spot worthwhile upgrades. It's a fresher crate V8 that also includes an Edelbrock four-barrel carburetor, spacer, Edelbrock Performer EPS intake, and HEI ignition. There's an updated DJM suspension, and so this one rides with confidence going down the road. Plus, a rebuilt three-speed automatic transmission, power steering, power brakes w/front discs, and grippy low-profile tires keep it a great cruiser.

This GMC has been given all the right investments to be the truck you've always wanted. And since it's turn-key ready right now, you need to call today!
