BIG POWER, 700R4 TRANS, FRONT DISCS, PWR STEER & BRAKES
The neat clean lines of these trucks have always been a good look.
This one is nice looking in its bright blue paint while some
significant chassis rake and big chrome wheels give it a bit of
attitude. You can go ahead and judge this book by its cover if you
like, because the story inside is just as good. Check it out.
Cruising this truck down Main Street at night must be fun. The
lights would be reflecting off the broad expanses of light blue
paint of the body panels and dancing off the crisp lines of the
hood. It would certainly be turning heads and getting peoples
attention. What really adds to the effect is what is not there.
Like any side trim or ornamentation disturbing the look and the
lines. What is there is just the right amount of nice new chrome.
Up front the GMC grill makes a statement that is different and
bolder than its Chevrolet cousins. A strong cross of chrome divides
the grill into four quarters which are flanked by quad headlights.
Chrome dresses out the leading edge of the hood and fenders too and
it is all underlined by a simple chrome bumper. Out back the look
is even cleaner with two simple taillights edged in polished metal
with another simple bumper underneath.
Open the door and you will find that the neat and clean theme
continues in the blue interior too. The same pattern carries
through on the comfortable bench seat, you know, the kind of seat
that lets your significant other slide over close to you for the
ride. A deep dish three spoke steering wheel has a GMC horn button
in the center and a shifter for the automatic transmission on the
column. Stock gauges are mounted in a black panel in the blue dash
and a Kenwood head unit that is AM/FM/CD pumps the sounds out
through speakers for your listening pleasure. Fresh carpets and a
nice headliner complete the picture and tie the look of the
interior together nicely.
Pop the hood and you will find the story behind the attitude this
bad to the bone classic truck. There you will find a fresh built
sbc 406 cubic inch powerhouse nestled down in a neat and clean
engine bay. The firewall is painted to match the exterior and the
inner fender wells have all been coated in flat black which directs
your attention to the star of the show. It is topped by a polished
air cleaner. The air is sent down through a 4-barrel carburetor and
Edelbrock Performer intake manifold. Chrome valve covers with
breathers add their splash of flash while the ignition system gets
the spark to the plugs through black wires. Spent gasses are
extracted through long tube headers and sent back through the true
dual exhuast. Power front disc brakes insure that you can haul this
sweet ride back down from speed if you let those horses run, and
the rubber meets the road through 255/40ZR20s mounted on those
awesome U.S. MAGS alloy wheels.
A super clean looking GMC C/10 with some serious attitude and the
muscle to back up the look. Come on down and check this truck out.
Then take it home with you and go show it off under the lights.
