For Sale at Auction: 1971 GMC 1500 in Scottsdale, Arizona

Vehicle Description

This nut-and-bolt restoration was complete in 2021 without compromise. The pickup is black on black with a black leather interior. The cockpit is accentuated by AutoMeter Prestige silver and black gauges built into a custom instrument cluster designed to match the passenger side. The black sport steering wheel along with the polished TREMEC 5-speed shifter and stereo with Apple CarPlay and Bluetooth 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. It is powered by a 350ci engine bored .30 over, beating to life via a 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. Finishing it off is a Holley Sniper EFI system for optimum performance and reliability. Providing spark is the Chevrolet Performance HEI Electronic ignition system. The accessory drive is powered by a March serpentine pulley system. Cooling is provided by 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 a McLeod clutch, flywheel and throw-out bearing. The core of the chassis is built from an original C10 frame augmented with RideTech suspension and air-ride components. Pulling up the rear is a GM 12-bolt posi-traction rear end with 3.73 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. Keeping it cool is the Resto-Mod Air climate control system with a custom panel under the dash for the vents. There's a new fuel tank with filler in the bed, while the stock one has been kept for appearance. This pickup is riding on fresh Falken rubber with American Racing classic 20-inch wheels. Has test miles only. **SOLD ON BONDED TITLE** **TITLED AS 1971 OTHER RECON**
