A 1940 GMC pickup is a rare sight, but that's just the beginning of the intrigue with this one. The vibrant paint, upgraded suspension, overdrive transmission, four-wheel disc brakes, air ride rear suspension, and custom leather-lined A/C interior all show off that this rare classic is a true restomod. And with a Corvette fuel-injected V8 under the hood, it's equal parts power and poise.
We like how they keep the best classic pieces in place while also absolutely announcing this is a custom pickup. You see it up front where the classic grille now has terrific chrome to give it an attention-grabbing shine. The headlights are still in torpedo-like pods, but now they are crystal clear units with integrated turn signals. And the classic GMC badges on the side of the hood are specially detailed in orange to match the truck. And speaking of the paint, the Burnt Orange is a modern application with a terrific metallic element. It's a smooth finish that loves to show off the curvaceous fenders, and you'll even spot the ghost flames in the front. The rear may have the classic GMC logo, but they also took the time to give it a modern and sleek style with well-integrated pieces like the tail light, license plate, and dual exhaust tips. Running boards, step plates, and plenty of glossy lumber in the bed are all about making sure this looks thoughtful in the way it respects the classic style. But those 18-inch US Mags alloys are all about showing off a modern cruiser stance.
Inside is more of the modern style with a touch of classic flair. After all, that full saddle-style leather makes this feel like an old-school rancher pickup. But with the well-contoured seats, padded dash, plush carpeting, and full door panels, it's far more inviting than any 1940s machine. And there are also plenty of modern conveniences with power windows, power locks, a cup holder console, an AM/FM/CD stereo, and cold-blowing air conditioning. Plus, it's easy to get comfortable to take this one to shows near and far thanks to the tilt steering column, fold-down armrest, and full VDO gauges. There's even a control on the side of the seat to adjust the rear air ride suspension.
The piano hinge hood will open on either side, and that's to make sure you can have the ideal showcase for the engine bay. They took extra time adding polished components, tucking the wires, and making the color-matched inner walls super-smooth. There's even a custom motor cover with the flame-kissed style as the front fenders. And while the presentation is award-worthy, the real marvel is that this is running a 5.7-liter fuel-injected LS1 V8. This GMC has an exceptional level of style, and it really wants you to show it off everywhere. After all, there's an aluminum radiator with electric fan to help keep this running cool even when you have the A/C pumping, and the four-speed automatic transmission with overdrive so you can enjoy this restomod on the highway. It even rides on a newer chassis that includes an independent front suspension, power steering, and four-wheel power disc brakes.
This is an exceptionally thoughtful build that takes a pre-WWII truck and makes it as comfortable as a daily commuter. So if you want a true custom that's also powerful and comfortable, don't miss this deal. Call today!!!
