Vehicle Description

Zoom Classic Cars is proud to present this meticulously restored 1949 GMC Panel Truck (1/2 Ton series). This trucks restoration certainly included visual elements but was also highly focused to its mechanics, overall functionality and reliability - everything in this truck works as it should, including its highly desirable and rare "variable" heat option, this 49 GMC is ready for the road and continued enjoyment. The truck has remained in the current owner's family since 1955 and received most of its restoration in the 1990's. The owner reports its history as being used as a delivery vehicle by a dry-cleaning company prior to his father's purchase in 1955 with the intent to use it as their shop truck for a family run automotive repair business - Closter Motors. The truck has since been passed down in the family and certainly well cared for to maintain its legacy and overall driving enjoyment. Exterior wise this vehicle shows excellent with just a few very minor paint scratches in its classic Green attire, there are NO signs of concerning body work or rust/rot evident which is consistent to the overall quality behind this restoration. For body history the owner reports some rust repair to the front fenders and additional metal work performed to the top of the rear fenders - all professionally completed prior to paint. Exterior Chrome and attributes are all beautifully clean, all lighting clean and functional. Interior wise this truck is finished in classic brown and grey attire and shows excellent, doors close tight and well, under dash is fully detailed and all functioning elements including the "variable" heat control which was an option back in 1949. Finishing interior detail includes seats as classic finished Vinyl, and the cabin repainted during its overall refreshment as well as rubber mats installed as protective floor coverings. The rear cargo area retains its restored wood flooring finished in Black topped with a classic rubber protective mat, storage includes a compartment under the passenger seat. The rear cargo area also retains cloth hanger bars originally installed during its Dry-Cleaning delivery days. The only known issue is a non-functioning speedometer which is believed to be a speedo gear drive issue, with that said milage shown is believed to be inaccurate with true milage unknown. Other than this one known issue this truck is ready to drive and runs excellent. This truck is finished with chrome front and rear, solid running boards, full mirrors and classic ambulatory style rear doors. The exterior lettering is vinyl graphic that can be removed if not desired by a new owner. For driveline this truck maintains a clean running 228Ci inline six cylinders mated to the correct four speed manual transmission - all running well. Classic steel wheels with GMC covers and polished trim rings mate to the road with BFG Silvertown tires with a rear undermount spare. This vehicle has a clean NJ Title and is located in Northern NJ.
