For Sale: 1971 GMC Sprint in Mesa, Arizona

Vehicle Description

This 1971 GMC Sprint has the extra-sharp style of a well-restored and well-respected classic. The vibrant paint, bright chrome, comfortable interior, strong small block, and car-like ride of this pickup all come together to make for the kind of classic that's built to get some serious attention when out on the streets.


We love the Sprint because of its distinction. After all, it shares the body style with the El Camino, but these always get an extra nod for both its rarity and being a true GMC pickup. It gets even better on this one because it takes the idea of added distinction to heart. It's a total package where you can see they took the time to get it looking good, and it has been treated with the right care ever since. The bright red paint radiates with quality, and its shine also shows off the straightness of the sheet metal. And the only elements to outshine the paint is all the terrific brightwork. From-hugging chrome bumpers, bright bezels, and plenty of trim outlining the distinct truck bed all give this a premium appeal. Plus, this one even has some sporty upgrades. Black racing stripes on the front, a blackout tailgate panel, a cowl hood, and rally wheels with raised white letter tires make this Sprint look like a Super Sport.


The black interior looks great against the red exterior. Part of this attraction is a dark and clean presentation on the dash, headliner, carpets, and seat. It has a look of quality, right down to the little things, like the weather-stripping. There are some cool vintage details, like the knob-style AM/FM radio and the factory air conditioning is still in place (it will need servicing to blow cold again.) Plus, it's set up to be a nice driver with the wood-rimmed three-spoke steering wheel, full round gauge package, and auxiliary readouts neatly mounted under the dash.


The 350 cubic-inch V8 has the same clean look of quality as the rest of this classic. So you can tell they want this one to be a good driver. You even have a Quardajet four-barrel carburetor and an Edelbrock intake. It's not made to be a stoplight race, but instead, it gives you peppy power that also makes a nice tune out of the dual exhaust. The three-speed automatic transmission, power steering, power brakes, and a suspension shared with the Chevelle are also part of what makes this classic GMC such a great all-around cruiser.


This Sprint is a full package with distinction, flair, and quality. So if you're looking for a terrific cruiser classic, you can't let this bright red car/truck slip away. Call today!!!
