1959 GMC 100
Just like Chevrolet, GMC has been offering light-duty trucks since
the 1930s. It makes sense since most of the brand's products have
always been rebadged and slightly revised Chevrolets, but GMC
trucks weren't particularly popular back in the day.
But the 1959 GMC 100 pickup truck we have at Adventure Classics is
like no other you have ever seen. It has hot-rod resto-mod written
all over it and it has become a stunning collectible.
Engine & Drivetrain
The original GMC had an inline-six but open the hood on ours and
you will be shocked when you see the built 454 cubic inch big block
Chevrolet engine with the block, heads, and intake painted in
Chevrolet orange and having the chrome open element air cleaner
over the performance carb, finned aluminum M/T valve covers, power
steering, power disc brakes, air conditioning, tube headers feeding
the dual exhaust, performance distributor, and all sitting in a
very sharp detailed engine compartment.
The engine is backed by a 5-speed Tremec manual transmission and it
rides on a lowered suspension on chrome mag wheels and Cooper Cobra
Radial GT performance tires.
This isn't a regular GMC series hauler either when you look at the
interior. It has a restomod fashion to it but also retains some
originality to it.
It boasts a customized blue interior with a cloth fabric bench
seat, blue carpet, tinted glass, a complete Dakota digital dash,
aftermarket stereo system, air conditioning, tilt steering column
and black/polished steering wheel, floor mats, seatbelts, chrome
5-speed floor shifter with the white shifter knob, great door
panels, and is as comfortable as any truck can be.
When you see the light blue paint job on this GMC it is nicer than
any other 1959 you will ever see. It truly gives it the right look
with all the great brightwork, including the chrome grill and
bumpers, step-side bed, fully restored and modified wood bed with
the hard bed cover, and the painted windshield visor.
While you're starting to get the picture, don't forget to look at
its level of sophistication and lowered stance it has, with the
power to back it up.
The 1959 1959 GMC 100 pickup truck we have at Adventure Classics is
such an iconic GMC pickup, but when you throw in the looks and
power with the resto-mods, you will then know what a home run you
have on all levels.
