This 1972 GMC Jimmy 4x4 represents a rare vintage done right. There's proper V8 power, a distinctive color combo, 4x4 prowess, and plenty of nice extra - all wrapped around the full convertible appeal. It makes for the best of everything in one cool vintage package.
For many full-size 4x4 fans, this Jimmy is the one. The first-gen gave you a full convertible top, and the GMC version was rarer than the Chevy. So it gives this one an instant respect and demand even before you check out the total vintage package. The factory-correct Medium Blue paint was given a quality respray so it has a nice gloss that loves to pop in the sunlight (always nice on a convertible.) Plus, you can tell this one was a premium Cheyenne-level SUV with details like all the trim done in a cool/classic wood applique. Bright chrome bumpers, an imposing polished grille, dual exhaust tips, and Rally wheels also add to this premium feeling with a quality brightwork package. And since this is a true useful 4x4 with a tall stance and proper trailer hitch, this clean vintage Jimmy can make people jealous everywhere from the campsite to the boat ramp.
While we like the look of the bright white hardtop, you really want to take it off to show the rare and desirable full open-air experience. Plus, there's something quite cool about the full blue interior against the full blue exterior that gives this open-air 4x4 the same appeal as tropical ocean water. And the trim tag tells us this was born this way! It has a very stock style, but you can tell there was an investment here later in life because the premium Cheyenne western-style pattern on the seats and doors still has a nice texture. There are nice features like a wood-rimmed steering wheel, provisions for factory air conditioning (it will need servicing,) and a retro-style AM/FM digital tuner with aux input. And we love how a classic like this remains a true practical cruiser.
Under the hood is a stout small block V8. This 350 cubic-inch motor is suspected to be a later crate V8, and it shows all the right signs of good maintenance. Topped with a four-barrel carburetor, it fires up readily and makes a nice tune out of the dual exhaust. A stout V8 like this is great in a go-anywhere 4x4 - especially with the two-speed transfer case, tall stance, and BF Goodrich All-Terrain T/As. But more than just an off-roader, this is also an easy cruiser thanks to a three-speed automatic transmission, power steering, and power brakes with front discs.
This Jimmy offers sharp looks, GMC rarity, full convertible appeal, and a strong-running total package. So don't miss this all-around stunner. Call today!!!
