Gateway Classic Cars of San Antonio/Austin is proud to present this
1948 GMC 1/2 Ton Pickup. In 1912 General Motors patented the GMC
truck name and the rest is history. GMC has become known for
building dependable trucks that have become the workhorse of
America. After the war, the GMC light and medium duty trucks had a
major redesign called "GMC New Design". With an Inca Gold cab,
hood, and bed sides with the black running boards and large
headlights surrounding its silver horizontal 3-bar integrated
grille, this truck drips with late 1940's design. Upon opening the
long bulbous hood, we are met with a 228CID Inline 6-cylinder
engine, which is believed by the owner to have been gone through
during an earlier restoration (although not documented). This
228CID is topped by a 1-barrel carburetor, and an "oil bath" air
cleaner. A 4-speed manual transmission is attached to the rear of
the I6, keeping in tune with the original 1940's character. The cab
features a bench seat upholstered in black vinyl joined by a
color-coordinated rubber floor covering. Interior equipment
includes a grey steel dashboard, a floor shifter, a cabin heater,
and a push-button AM/AUX radio. The three-spoke GMC steering wheel
frames an 80-mph speedometer and gauges for oil pressure, fuel
level, coolant temperature, and an amp meter. The 5-digit odometer
reads 800 miles, although true mileage is unknown. In true GMC
truck form, with a larger frame and bigger engine than the same
year Chevy's, you'll be able to take a load of hay to the market or
go out on the town for cruise night with your lady!
